  1. Skype Releases SkypeKit SDK, Wants the Future of Communication

    Today, Skype has officially released SkypeKit into limited beta. SkypeKit is a suite of tools and APIs that allow developers to integrate Skype functionality -- read: voice and video calling -- into any number of internet-connected devices and products. That's right; Skype is now poising themselves to be a standard among video chat solutions that can make it past your computer and mobile phone and into whatever the developer and/or consumer wants.

  2. General Grievous Sighted in Germany, Hide Your Jedi [Video]

    Gotta love cosplay.  One German Star Wars fan has made one damn impressive General Grievous costume, and it really has to be seen to be believed. The level of detail and obvious hard work this guy must have put into this makes for something rather awe-inspiring... if you get past how, well, unsettling seeing it might be. It's that good. It beats the hell out of my Lando Calrissian costume anyway. Video after the jump (don't mind the German!)

  3. Oldest Shoes Ever Found: Well-Preserved, but Not Well Enough for Fall Season

    What do I know about shoes? I know my Balenciagas from my Louboutins at the very least, but I only dabble in those most famous of footwear because they look dangerous enough to take down a mugger or ninja. Like that scene from Sex and the City? You know, when Carrie... Anyway, shoes are not among my chiefest of interests. Cool archaeological finds, on the other hand, are more my cup of loose tea. However, it's not like the two can't combine right?

  4. Finally! Dreamcast Lives On in PS3 and Xbox 360

    It's still thinking, and we're very excited. Sega of America and Sega of Europe have happily made a joint announcement stating that the Dreamcast, that oh-so-beloved console released on 9/9/99 (and died a year and a half later), will see new life on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

  5. Today in Video Game Movies: Mortal Kombat… costarring Spawn? (Update: Jeri Ryan Explains)

    Video game adaptations have forever been a source of nerdrage from fanboys, but heaven knows they make money no matter how ill-advised. The Mortal Kombat series is no exception. I mean James Remar? Really? But every once and a while you get something that at least looks promising. Without giving too much away, what you'll see below is a 8-minute tease/trailer for... something within the MK universe. And it looks pretty badass. While it's not clear if this is a bona fide reboot of the series or a game-tie or a standalone work unto itself, it's clear that those involved didn't hold back. Update: Jeri Ryan, who plays Sonya Blade in the video, explains via Twitter: "It's not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK film."

  6. Dr. Demento Off the Airwaves for Good as of this Weekend, to Become Web-Only

    Barrett Eugene Hansen, otherwise known as Dr. Demento, announced on Monday that he will be closing the doors of his near 40-year old radio show this weekend in favor of producing shows for DrDemento.com.

    While we're heartened to hear that he is not retiring from all media, his departure from radio is a shame, and has an ironic twist to it; He was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame only this past November.

  7. Sue Sylvester’s Thoughts on the iPhone 4 and Her Time in Singapore [Video]

    And just in time for Glee tonight! In case you missed it, Jane Lynch, a.k.a. Sue Sylvester, pretty much blew apart the iPhone and the still-ongoing stolen iPhone debacle yesterday, coming on the heels of the iPhone 4 announcement. Lynch, accompanied by stand-up comedian and performer Kassem G, sent up the dead and not-so-missed Get a Mac commercials with G playing the new iPhone and Lynch playing... herself. To great comedic effect, (although I'm not sure how you get a camera third nipple) proving once again she can be both hilarious and kind of terrifying. Video after the jump!

  8. Mars500: Six Cosmonauts Start 18-Month Journey to Not-Quite-Mars

    This morning, an international group of six volunteers recruited by the European Space Agency began the Mars500 project. Taking place at the Institute of Biomedical Problems in Moscow, the experiment will simulate the long journey to Mars as scientists observe the physiological and psychological stresses impacted on the six spacemen over a period of 18 months. Keeping them sheltered from the perils of space otherwise known as Russia is an elaborate craft consisting of a series of tubes that simulates the different living environments one might encounter on the International Space Station.

  9. Mark Zuckerberg Defends New Privacy Controls and Facebook Mission at D8

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg graced the stage at All Things D's D8 Conference last night to talk about the new and hotly debated privacy features as well as Facebook's overall direction. Joining him on stage were columnists Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, who shot questions at the young CEO about instant personalization, opt-in, and whether or not he ever takes off his hoodie. By interview's end, Zuckerberg had only gone just far enough to bridge the gap between him and his detractors, but he was consistent in making clear that in his view, Facebook's mission was and has always been to help people to share information with the world around them. Four highlights:

  10. Mario Kart in Real Life: Or, a Celebration of Mario Racing Geekery [Slideshow]

    Bringing the world of Mario Kart to real life is nothing terribly new -- seriously, how great is it to bring anything Mario into the real world -- but Tomy has added a new wrinkle to this game. Now, you can race your remote controlled car and use power-ups against your competitors. Because striking down your foes with lightning wasn't sweet enough.
