Full teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises surfaces online.Full teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises surfaces online.

Put me in the 'meh' column for this trailer, it just does nothing for me. I was however suprised to see that this installment with bring about the 'epic conclusion' of a series inspired by a comic book, then made into a television show, then made into a movie, then made into a cartoon, then remade into yet another series of movies. Doesn't really feel all that conclusive.

George Lucas pulls the plug on Star Wars movie marathon over in Brooklyn.George Lucas pulls the plug on Star Wars movie marathon over in Brooklyn.

Organizers claim Lucasfilm's legal stormtroopers fired off a cease-and-desist order just two days before the event. Organizers of the 13-hour screening, which had been slated for the Wicked Monk in Bay Ridge on July 3, promptly called it off. The order cited copyright infringements and added that there was a moratorium on public 'Star Wars' screenings.

Eight websites you need to stop building according to The Oatmeal.Eight websites you need to stop building according to The Oatmeal.

After carefully perusing this comic (and laughing a little bit too loud for office-level volumes) I was a little discomforted by the fact that the Pork'd mock design looks ridiculously similar to the current version of GLM. I guess I was a little generic with this iteration, might be time for a redesign methinks.

Is Best Buy about to acquire Gamestop?Is Best Buy about to acquire Gamestop?

By buying Gamestop, Best Buy would become one of the premium video game retailers in the U.S., causing even more foot traffic to creep inside its brick-and-mortar locations. This has been a rumor in the past, but it makes sense now more than ever.
