Hail Eris! - The planet(?) formely known as Xena will now be officially renamed "Eris" - Greek goddess of chaos. Fitting, given how much infighting it has sown in the astronomical community. ;]

Bionic arms on the march - I have noted before that I, for one, welcome our new bio-Strogg humanity liquidators.

The Nintendo Revolution will be region-free! - Alright! Nintendo GETS it! Region coding = locking out potential customers. And yes, Nintendo's newest console will always be the "Revolution" to me, not that skin-crawlingly pink girly name they've given it. (Not that there's anything WRONG with that...)

Diebold voting machine utterly pwNzd - Oh sure, like nobody saw THAT one coming. Bruce Schneier said it best: electronic voting machines need to have paper trails verifiable by the individual voter, or they're untrustable crap.
