Amazing Lego Starship: OSS Pontbriand. Not much more to say about this. Via Reddit.
Well, with PDC in full swing it seems that some folks have gotten a Hands-on With Windows 7's New Features. I'm going to reserve judgment for a bit as IIRC the first betas of Vista released at PDC a few years ago looked and felt like XP with a black skin, and (for me anyway, for the most part) Vista turned out OK. Mostly OK anyway.
Very cool visualization of how a chess computer thinks over here. However, it also makes me realize how woefully inadequate my brain is to deal with playing a computer at chess :)
Woo! Finally Google Earth Comes to the iPhone!
Amidst the launch of Google’s own Android mobile operating system, the company is bringing its Google Earth software to the iPhone App Store. As reported by our sister site News.com, the iPhone version replciates much of the desktop application’s core experience, downloading imagery from Google’s servers as the perspective shifts and dotting the map with landmarks, photos, and other information.
Installing this now, wonder if it'll be better than the Earthscape app that is already there and is not bad...
SlashFilm has a link to the Harry Potter and the Half Blood-Prince International Trailer.
If you recall the last iteration of Stefan Didik's office, the sound you made was probably something like "oh dear Jesus" and then your head exploded. Well, tighten your helmet straps, he has New Office Pictures online.

Sent from Brian are some More Star Trek Images of the Enterprise crew. Man this looks good....
A concept computer that came out this morning was the OLO iPhone-powered Laptop. Basically the iphone plugs in to where the trackpad would be and acts as the CPU and touchpad. Interesting idea... not sure how realistic this is, but it's definitely an interesting concept.
Darren pointed out this very hot Battlestar Galactica case mod. Again, my birthday is coming up..... someone? Anyone?
Part of the marketing for the new Kevin Smith movie is that you can get you own Zack and Miri Star I.D.. You can now call me "Snowball Adams" or "Two-Pump Chump" if you like.
No, not really.
Geeks of doom has a good review of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Blu-ray).
The grey-haired duo of director Steven Spielberg and writer/producer George Lucas find themselves traveling the route so many baseball players (and directors, ahem, Michael Bay) find themselves on today: injecting superhuman strength into their bodies to produce outrageous results.
Hit the link for the whole thing.
So it looks like Stefan Didak (previously) is re-doing his office and has posted some pictures of his Home Office Overhaul Nearing Completion project. Very sexy, very extreme multi-monitor mojo. Looking forward to the new tour!
Khensu threw me a link to The Manga Guide to Databases.
I have no idea what to say.
Looks like all the rumors were true... next Wednesday there is a MacBook Event. From the Apple Blog:
Members of the media have just received word that the rumored October 14 MacBook event is rumor no more. Invitations sent by Apple’s PR department confirm that next Tuesday will see a special event hosted by the company at its Cupertino campus.
Wonder which (if any) of the various rumors will come true.
OK, it's just a comic, but Miscellanea seems to have a good grasp of The Behavior Modification Loop of Epic Fail. :)
Matthew Inman has a funny look at The 8 Phases of Dating (and others below, including 10 reasons why it would rule to date a unicorn).
And you thought your camera had a long exposure time.... check out these Solargraphy images which are 6 month exposures.

So I saw an announcement for an iPhone VOIP client named fring..... looks like it's multi-im + skype + other stuff in an iPhone app. Not available in the canada store yet though :(
Gamesradar puts up an interesting look back at the Evolution of the tree in video games.
Not bad... check out Booting Linux in five seconds at LWN.net. The caveat is that it is on the eeepc, but still, that's damn impressive.
Nice list on networkworld of 23 things I wish would just go away. Apple, Microsoft.... no on is spared.
Some amazing pics of Light Art Performance Photography (not modem friendly link... lots of pics).
TUAW notes that the iPhone NDA was dropped. The NDA (better known by developers as ) was a large burden on people developing software as sharing information and tips makes developing software much easier. Now Apple has removed this barrier, hopefully we'll see better/stronger/faster iPhone and iPod Touch apps.
