    D’oh! Homer Simpson, And His Donut, May Show Up In Angry Birds Space

    We heard from Peter Vesterbacka himself that Angry Birds Space would be Rovio's biggest launch yet. It's had crazy success since its launch in March, and in proper Rovio fashion, the company has just released an update to the next level: "Fry Me To The Moon." But with access to the next level, we also get a glimpse of what the level past that might look like, and guess what! It looks a helluva… Read More

    Linux (sort of ) turned 17-years-old yesterday

    Flickr’d It was 17 years ago yesterday that Linus Torvalds announced on Usenet the availability of his “free minix-like kernel,” better known to the world as Linux.

It happens… Read More

  • New York Times Reviews 'The Simpsons Movie'

    New York Times Reviews 'The Simpsons Movie'

    The New York Times has reviewed The Simpsons Movie and the verdict seems to be that it’s decent; akin to a long episode. Ask any die-hard Simpsons fan and they’d probably tell you that it would be impossible for such a movie to encompass every lovable facet of the show’s 18 seasons. I would think that this would be a good opportunity for Groening and company to make this the… Read More
