I am shocked (shocked, I tell you) that this list is missing what is quite possibly the geekiest engagement ring of all time. Blasphemy I say - there can only be one ring to rule them all.

The show is rumored to be of the hour-long drama variety and may feature very few characters (if any) from the existing Star Wars universe.  Sounds good so far. Note to LucasFilm: please follow The Force Unleashed plotline.

Nobody talks about the 'World Wide Web' anymore, or the 'Information Superhighway,' for that matter. It’s just the Internet. It’s a distinction that Steve Czaban, the popular Fox Sports Radio talk show host, likes to mock when he refers to the 'Worldwide Interweb.'
