- Engadget: "Cambrionix 49-port USB hub for professional nerds"
Isn't that thing a little overkill? I mean, who the hell needs 49 USB ports?!
- Switched: "NSA Whistleblower Gets Ignored by Everyone"
- MSNBC: "Fla. official fired over marriage to porn star"
Everybody is entitled to marry who they want, and marrying a porn star is no different. If you wanted to keep your image clean, you wouldn't have made this into a big deal, but now you look like the bad guy for firing somebody over who they love and are happy with.
- MSNBC: "Humans glow in visible light"

- Link: "Awesome wearable computer setup is powered by Sony VAIO UX UMPC"
- Link: Card.ly - Online business cards
- Wired: "District 9 Rises From the Ashes of Halo"
If you haven't heard about this movie, then you really should check out the link and find the trailer for the movie here. It looks like it's going to be really good!
