One might think that NASA would be excited to examine the first scoop of soil that they've retrieved using the Curiosity rover that spectacularly landed itself on Mars not that long ago. Instead, NASA's next focus appears to be on the partially-visible shiny object in the foreground of the above image. Even NASA themselves admit that it might just be a bit of rover hardware, but they're going to give it a thorough examination anyway.
If you're in the market for a new Xbox 360 controller and like things that are shiny, you might just be in luck; Microsoft is rolling out a new line of shiny chrome controllers that are awesome in theory but probably not so great for anyone who likes to eat greasy food while gaming, i.e. everyone. Aside from the chrome-age, these controllers will also come with those tricked out twistable d-pads you heard about way back in 2010. These bad boys will cost you $54.99, five bucks more than your average wireless controller, but that's a small price to pay for shiny, right? Right?!
