  1. People Are Using Hacked Toy Hobbit Sting Swords to Find Unsecured Wi-Fi

    "I will give you a name...and I shall call you NO MORE LINKSYS."

    The Elvish smiths of Gondolin had their priorities straight: having an early-warning system for nearby goblins and orcs is all well and good, but finding accessible Wi-Fi networks is just as important. And now, thanks to the work of some enterprising nerds over at, Sting's true web-cutting potential has finally been revealed!

  6. The Hobbit Gets Another Poster With Lots Of People On It

    There And Back Again

    I have absolutely no problem with how many Hobbit movie posters we've been seeing lately. First it was Martin Freeman's Bilbo in the spotlight, then the dwarves all crammed into one, then there was the overly large banner we'd love to hang in The Mary Sue office. Today we get another menagerie of characters but it's a mix of hobbits, dwarves, wizards, orcs, goblins, and whatever that beastly thing is we can't figure out (Bolg? Beorn?).

  9. New York Times Issues Wonderfully Geeky Sports Section Correction

    Following an article on a baseball bat humorously named for Orcrist the Goblin-Cleaver, a sword from The Hobbit that was owned by Thorin Oakenshield -- and not Bilbo Baggins, duh-- the New York Times learned the #1 lesson about writing articles about swords in Tolkien books: Be sure that you get every detail about the Tolkienian sword right, or you will hear very quickly from Tolkien fans that you did not get every detail about the Tolkienian sword right, dangit. (Related: Baseball fans are probably geekier than most other sports fans.)
