The new Verizon Droid is one of the first solid iPhone challengers that doesn’t suck. It packs some sweet new smartphone features, and gives you a viable alternative to an iPhone or a Blackberry. That is, if the intensely dude-targeted ad campaign doesn’t weird you out too much. Also, can we talk about how the glowing red Droid thing is the eye of Sauron? No? Well, Okay…
A lot of ladies are paving the way to hot geekdom for the rest of us so today we’re serving up a hot first course of sexy nerds with Tina Fey, Rachel Maddow, Felicia Day, Ana Marie Cox & Miranda July.

Mac tablet rumors abound as we all completely lose our minds waiting for Apple to confirm or deny its existence. In the mean time, we have to figure out what the heck we’ll do with it. Will it change the face of technology as we know it? Do we even need an Apple tablet?
I think you need to see these pictures of a vicious polar bear attack. You will thank me after.
The ‘Daily Drop Cap‘ is hot: a new illustrative initial is posted every day for your enjoyment and for the beautification of blog posts everywhere.
What would happen if the Internet disappeared today? Hilarious and frighteningly accurate.
Wow this is really incredible: a 3D rendering/exploration of Pablo Picasso’s Guernica painting. The movie takes a bit to load, but it’s worth it. (via WordVomit)
This is by far the coolest wall stick company I’ve ever seen and I want all of their designs ASAP: HU2 Design
I would be happy if everything we needed in our lives looked like Lego pieces, like these awesome USB hubs for your desktop.
BoingBoing made a remix of the Jonathan Fowler documentary “Synesthesia” AND IT LOOKS SO GOOD! You can also watch the full-length film here.
What would happen if we printed the internet? Just some fun facts to help visualize what a massive piece of work this internet is. (…I wonder if they’re counting pornography?)
James May’s Lego house was demolished!!! It was supposed to be moved to Legoland but it was too expensive, so they destroyed it, along with my childhood dream to live in a house made entirely of Legos.
Are you addicted to the internet? Find out! NPR had an interesting story about Ben and his addiction to WoW. Do you know what WoW is? Then you’re probs addicted to the internet, which is FINE.
We’re really upset about the twitter trending topic #uknowhowiknowuregay currently tearing up the interwebs started by a rapper named “Fabolous” because we believe it is spreading dangerous misinformation. We will translate/clarify some of these tweets for you.
There are women here who’ve founded their own companies and nailed funding from VCs and women who want to find the intersection of fashion and technology via embedded circuits. All of this is incredibly inspiring, but also in one small way problematic: when you’re confronted with super ambitious, brilliant women changing our technical landscape, how the hell do you behave yourself?
Carly lays out her mission: to alert you to any exciting updates in the world of tech and design, as well as answer your nerdy tech questions!
Carly loves robots! But is creeped out by talking iPods. The iPhone 3.0 has fantastic features (what does landscape mode even do? probably something great), and you can make your voice into a waveform bracelet!
