Yes, you may be seeing the end of boring black and white e-ink on your beloved Kindle at some point in the near future. I could be wrong though, maybe black and white multitouch screens will be all the rage. The possibilities!

I would probably purchase the nose gel dispenser only because it reminds me of watching Nickelodeon's Double Dare way back in the day. I would probably have to hide a flag somewhere up there to complete the experience.

Most surprising to me is that Duke Nukem finally gets axed from the list after a very long reign. OK, well not very surprising but I considered it a tradition after seeing DNF on the list for seemingly several years in row.

Barnes & Noble offers up consolation gift for those who won't receive their Nook by Christmas.Barnes & Noble offers up consolation gift for those who won't receive their Nook by Christmas.

He guesses the company will miss shipment on about 2% to 4% of the devices, adding up to $100,000 to $200,000 worth of gift certificates. That’s store credits and not cash, so Barnes & Noble will no doubt recoup some of that investment.

I'm not in the market for an e-reader gadget but this thing looks really cool and it's way more attractive than Amazon's Kindle in terms of aesthetics.
