Today in Techland: We’ve got iPad fever like everyone else – will you be lining up for hours? – but we took some time out of the tech haze to bring you our take on Clash of the Titans (hint: Bor-ing) and the next round of our Monster Madness bracket chosen by a very special guest: the guys from Penny Arcade!
Here’s what else is going on in nerd news around the Web:
Do you think he’s read Pride & Prejudice & Zombies? MTV takes us on a tour of Dumbledore’s office as seen in Universal Studio’s The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. They look really thorough with the details. I’ve always wondered what his book collection looked like.
Syfy, this summer: Syfy announced it’s summer lineup this week with Lake Placid 3 and new, stranger reality shows topping the list. Click here for a full look.
With the iPad, comes the spoils: Netflix announced that its instant view feature (for subscribers only) will be available on the iPad tomorrow via a free Netflix app.
The Hobbit FX details: Effects supervisor Richard Taylor talked the next J.R.R. Tolkien film adaptation with MTV. “It’s so busy here. I was in a big meeting about how to make the new designs of armor for the new film. That’s always good fun.” Awesome.
A fantastic Harry Potter parody
