Remember that thing Time does every fall, where we pick the best inventions of the year? No? Now? Still not?
Well, we do. And I’m in charge of it. It probably accounts for many multiples of my annual salary in ad revenue, hence my continued employment here. So I’ve been focused on that. And on Uncharted 2. Back Monday.
Last week we sat down with Warren Spector and spoke to him about his upcoming project: Disney Epic Mickey. The artwork looks amazing despite the Wii’s lackluster graphics capabilities. This is a Mickey that we’ve never seen before. It’s a radical change for Disney from what Spector told us. We also learned that Warren is a huge …
I just got back from a little shindig for Verizon’s Moto Droid and now have the device on hand. I’m not sure if you guys are interested, but if you are then drop a comment and I’ll do my best to get it answered. Here’s a quick rundown on specs:

So here …
It’s like how the package art on action figures was always so epic, and then you open it and you have this little injection-molded plastic turd with like one articulated joint. I would happily pay $12 to see movies based on these trailers. But will the games live up to them? How could they possibly?
This thing does look pretty cool. (And by the way, who built it? Can’t be internally developed.) I wonder whether Bezos is jumping up and down on his fedora right now. Or I mean, he is, but how hard? For the obligatory contrarian viewpoint, read …
I hate to pull the trigger early, but the Apple Store is down and we all know how much Apple loves Tuesdays. Normally, I wouldn’t be concerned or think anything of it, but it all started last night when Dan Lyons took a jab at John Gruber.
