Today in Techland: OMG OMG OMG. Did you guys see the new Twilight: Eclipse trailer? Yes, it’s here. Steve offers his thoughts here. I chatted with the lovely Bridget Regan from Legend of the Seeker, while Evan and Peter brought us the news on MOVE, live from GDC.

Here’s what else is going on in nerd news around the Web:

Why Zoe, why? In a recent interview, the beautiful Zoe Saldana told Essence that she thinks video games are hurting kids. “I think in American society, we’re messing up our kids by taking away the education on awareness of sexuality and replacing it with violence, guns and video games. We’re breeding little criminals.” Ouch. She also told the magazine that she loves sex. …Good to know?

Huh? The Norwegian Nobel Committee has confirmed that the Internet is in the running for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. Dude, if the Internet wins Al Gore is totally going to pull a Kanye/Crazy lady at the Oscars.

Your alternative, and let’s face it, superior, vampire movie trailer of the day:

This was expected, but still, thank goodness: AppleInsider reports that Apple’s has solved its multitasking dilemma in time for the iPhone 4.0 software update coming this summer.

On the set of Syfy’s Red:

The awesome Felicia Day as Syfy’s Little Red Riding hood.

Out in 2011.

The Godfather: Cell phone inventor Martin Cooper says he prefers Android to Apple. Ouch. Sorry, Steve.

Earn your barista badge: Starbucks and Foursquare have teamed up. While Starbucks has a pretty strong social media presence, this is a pretty ‘hip’ move. Foursquare users can now ‘check in’ while at different Starbucks locations. Frequent visitors will earn their very own Barista Badge and perhaps even special offers when they’re in the area. Cool.

Your Daily Dinosaur:

Proof I need to stop doing this hungry.
