Naked Super Mario Isn’T About to Offend Anyone but Sure Looks Strange

Leia Vs. Jabba the Hutt: Who Would Win in a Fight?
I think we all know the answer to that question. But if you’re looking for a constant reminder of Leia’s fantastic takedown of the big glob of goo, then look no further than this awesome desktop diorama.

NASA’s Robonaut 2 Will Tweet His Way Into Space
The spaceship Discovery will leave Earth on its final mission on the 1st of November. It will take along something entirely different, a robot! This is the robot that we’ve heard about before, the Robonaut 2, but there is something new about it: it will be tweeting all the way into space.

Translate Emoticons From Japanese to English

Translate Emoticons From Japanese to English
If you thought that emoticons were the same in all languages, you’d be dead wrong. Just check out the differences between English emoticons and their Japanese equivalents courtesy of Wired’s handy English-to-Japanese emoticon cheat sheet.

Ixp1-500 USB iPad Adapter: Cashing in on Apple’s USB Stupidity
The iPad can be charged via USB using the proprietary charge/sync cable. But on older Macs, and worse, in some modern PCs, sometimes the darned thing won’t charge. It seems that the problem is that the iPad doesn’t get enough power from the USB ports of slightly older machines.

Star Wars 1900: a Classic Scene Retold in Dark & Light

Star Wars 1900: a Classic Scene Retold in Dark & Light
What would Star Wars be like if it was a silent film? It would be much darker. It’s the dramatic battle between Vader and Luke, made slightly more comedic by the fast forwarded action, and the fact that Vader had the gall to ask for Luke’s cooperation right after chopping off the boy’s hand.

Your Greasy Fingers Could Get Your Smartphone Hacked

Macbook Air, Magic Trackpad, and Apple Keyboard Become One
This computer-in-a-keyboard casemod owes at least a nod to from the Asus EeeKeyboard (or at least the Commodore 64). Bart Reardon’s MacBook Air Project is working to combine the brains of a MacBook Air with the aluminum body Apple keyboard and a Magic Trackpad.

LEGO Empire Strikes Back Chess Set: Lego+star Wars, Who Could Ask for Anything More?

LEGO Empire Strikes Back Chess Set: Lego+star Wars, Who Could Ask for Anything More?
It’s always been about Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back for me. No matter what people say, I think it’s the most important film of the Star Wars saga. Even though I have to agree that Revenge of the Sith wasn’t all that bad, it was nowhere near as good as Empire, IMHO That being said, check out this neato LEGO Star Wars chess set, right out of Empire.
