What We’re Looking Forward To In 2010: Sci-fi TV

Though the 2010 pilot season won’t be here until August, the new year is upon us, and this means we must look to the future of our prime time entertainment. With the cancellation of Joss Whedon’s FOX series Dollhouse, we’re left (once again) to pick up the pieces of our sci-fi/fantasy TV fandom and look elsewhere.

Here’s what …

What We’re Looking Forward To In 2010: Gadgets

In a little over a week I’ll be in Las Vegas for CES. It’s my hope – along with every other tech journo – that the annual trade show will serve as center stage for some groundbreaking announcement by a major (or minor) CE company. It’s doubtful, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I don’t expect Palm to make as big a splash as they did …

The Most Controversial Video Games of the Decade

Violence, sex, race, religion.

Certainly controversial topics on their own, but perhaps even moreso when they’re depicted in a video game.

The Top 10 Spaceships: A Tale of Thrusters and Heat Shields

FULL LIST: The Top 10 Spaceships

Best of the Decade: Science Fiction and Fantasy Novels

So this was way less pleasant than I expected. I mean, we all know top 10 lists are exercises in bogus click-whoring, so standard caveats apply, blah blah blah. But still: painful. (And this is probably the tenth top-10 list I’ve written this month. Some of these books I’ve already summarized three or four times in the past two weeks. …

The Top 10 Gadgets of 2009

Lev and I picked our top 10 gadgets of the year for Time a couple weeks back and then we picked our top 10 gadgets of the year for Techland shortly thereafter. It turns out that both lists are identical. Weird, right? Or maybe you’ve already read about this

I was told that I had to make a video for this list and, well, I had no …

The Top 10 Games of 2009

Peter and I chose our top 10 games of the year. For Time. Then we chose them for Techland. Amazingly they turned out to be the exact same list both times. Here it is.

Or anyway here’s the first 40% of it. The whole list is over at, for some reason. I don’t want to talk about it.

One good thing about this year’s list: it …
