People have a hard enough time singing the Star Spangled Banner. Usually they will start at too high a pitch and run out of steam, or simply forget the words. No problem for the Red Bull Racing Formula One team, which yesterday delivered this, uh, note-perfect rendition on the banks of the Hudson River, with the Statue of Liberty as a backdrop.
Remember when hearing about the next big video game consoles sent shivers all through you? Mega64 remembers, too, and really nails the rift today between perceived casual and hardcore games, and a schizophrenic industry that tries to cater to both.
As Land Rover has become the ride of the gentry in recent years it could be hard to remember that this brand has its roots in being an adventurers ride. No more, thanks to a "Survival Guide" created as part of the owner's manuals distributed to purchasers in Dubai.
Since the beginning of time, mankind has been bored and annoyed by the moon. It's a big dumb sky booger that inhibits beachfront development with its constant tide shenanigans; is the chief cause of werewolfism; and has a perpetual and unwarranted "O-face." Just horrible. Sadly, scientists have yet to devise a technology capable of pushing the moon into some other unfortunate planetary body's orbit (despite some promising overtures from the political class). So, people of Earth, it looks like Potmarked McCheeseface won't be going anywhere anytime soon. I suppose we might as well try to learn some things about our common global irritation. Here we present some little known facts about the big stupid moon that, if nothing else, you can use to score points in pub trivia and impress strangers with your random and needlessly extensive moon knowledge. Enjoy.
What would happen if Darth Vader played an active role in raising (SPOILER!) his son, Luke Skywalker?

Get a peek inside the title right here, courtesy Chronicle Books.
Any Star Wars fan knows that Yoda's English is all backwards. No Jedi dares correct his poor mastery of the language because he's a Jedi master. One fan saw it fit to "fix" the little green dude's grammar with the magic of video editing.
In the competitive world of online video service April Fool's Day gags, Hulu was definitely the favored horse last year with its 1996 home page. This year, though, YouTube raised the stakes with its DVD collection release: The YouTube Collection.
What do those bedroom rubbers have in common with Android smartphones? It turns out a lot of the same names for condoms are also names used for Android smartphones. Maybe sending marketing teams over to the condom aisle is easier than using an Android Name Generator.
Apple's Siri is quickly becoming the most loved "personal assistant" ever created. The funny folks over at Rooster Teeth decided to mock Siri's intelligence with a parody called Siri: The Holiday Horror Movie where she's a serial killer.
I know I'm not the only person who knows of a handful or more silly Android names that are either too long are trying too hard to sound different. Yinzcam's humorous Android Phone Name Generator randomly churns out a ridiculous Android phone name based on all Android devices that have been announced.
