Next version of iOS to bring bluetooth keyboard support to the Apple TV.Next version of iOS to bring bluetooth keyboard support to the Apple TV.

Navigating around on Apple TV isn't exactly all that fun of an experience. Adding the ability for a keyboard (or some other form of navigation device) would definetly be helpful. Interesting to note that 9to5mac also points to rumors of an updated Apple TV coming out sometime this fall.

JetBlue offering up ten dollar seats in celebration of ten years of flight service.JetBlue offering up ten dollar seats in celebration of ten years of flight service.

Have a need to travel in the immediate future or more importantly, the very immediate near future? Then this deal might have your name all over it. You can grab a ten buck seat to a choice of ten destinations but you'll have to book it for Tuesday or Wednesday (and while seats are still available). Happy jetting.

Want some insight as to what the TRON sequel will actually be about?Want some insight as to what the TRON sequel will actually be about?

This review lets loose a ton of details about the overall plot of the movie from an early draft script (may not be final version) so those who don't want the movie spoiled for them best move their light cycle right along. The film is scheduled to hit theaters sometime in December.

Hubble manages to capture an overly blue view of Saturn.Hubble manages to capture an overly blue view of Saturn.

Aurorae result from charged solar wind particles trapped in a planet's magnetic field striking atoms in the upper atmosphere. Just like Northern Lights on Earth, Saturn sees similar polar light shows as a result.

This year's blue moon, though, will give New Year's Eve something special — a full moon to which wackier-than-usual-behavior among revelers is often attributed.

A handy tutorial on how to fight those dreary winter blues.A handy tutorial on how to fight those dreary winter blues.

One of the symptoms of winter blues is increased difficulty getting up in the morning, even if you've had plenty of sleep. Plugging a bright, florescent lamp into a timer and having it turn on before your alarm goes off will help simulate an artificial dawn.
