It can get pretty tiring being a Sith Lord, and after a long day of evil-doing on the Dark Side of the Force, sometimes you just need a break. That’s why I found this series of photos, entitled Dark Holiday, by Nick Presniakov so funny.

If I had a Quadrocopter remote-controlled flying aircraft floating around my place, I’m not sure this is the first thing I’d do with it. But it is the holidays, and I guess the joyful Christmas spirit is strong with the guys who programmed their Quadrocopter to play a little festive holiday tune.
Geeks can come up with some great ideas holiday season rolls around, and this one dude named Ric Turner has created a cool light show that you can actually play. People that happen by his house can use a controller out front and help Santa dodge snowballs.
As a kid, Santa tends to be a big part of Christmas. The more parents can do to make him seem real, the more fun and exciting it can seem. There are a lot of ways to do this, from taking your child to the mall to sit in his lap, to leaving milk and cookies for him on Christmas Eve.
Christmas is a time of family, friends, and decorations for folks all around the world. I put up the usual decorations with a tree, stockings, and some garland. I even throw a few lights on the house even though it’s two story and really steep.
This time of year, geeks all around the country start to pull out their decorations at home and some even decorate at the office. You know who we mean, that person in the cubicle next to you that has flashing lights and all sorts of decoration on their desk.
It’s getting to be the time of year when people start putting up festive decorations. Apparently, it’s also the season for pranking.

Cooking a turkey can be a delicate operation, even if you don’t try anything fancy or potentially dangerous, so it’s nice to know you have a friend in the kitchen (and in your iGadgets): this year, let your iPhone do the timing.
Yep, Halloween is barely upon us and here I go jumping the gun with Christmas stuff long before Turkey Day has even arrived. Oh well, calendars be damned. It’s finally time to rid of that boring old star on top of your Christmas tree this year, and swap it out with something much better.
