Have a peek at some concept art for Pixar's 2013-2014 movies and beyond.Have a peek at some concept art for Pixar's 2013-2014 movies and beyond.

In 2014 it's their if-dinosaurs-didn't-go-extinct movie titled The Good Dinosaur, directed by Bob Peterson, with a tease we've seen before. In 2015 it's Pete Docter's 'Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind', now titled The Inside Out; and in 2016 they've also got Lee Unkrich's movie about Día de los Muertos, which we really don't know much about at all. Notably missing is Andrew Stanton's sequel Finding Nemo 2.

A showcase of blogs with unique post designs for your viewing pleasure.A showcase of blogs with unique post designs for your viewing pleasure.

It seems like these days everyone is using the same old blog template or the same tired Wordpress theme (although I've seen some pretty amazing Tumblr themes). Regardless, I'm a sucker for blogs that don't actually look like your average blog and stray from the formula. The end result is what some are calling a 'blogazine'. Enjoy.

Ten cool gadgets you can't buy in the United States just yet.Ten cool gadgets you can't buy in the United States just yet.

This particular list is rife with iPad and iPhone alternatives (all of which seem to be running some flavor of Android).  The two lone and notable exceptions in my opinion seem to be this tiny camera, pictured in thumbnail to the left, and the ever peculiar Ant Watch (fifth slide in).

This is quite an endorsement for Canon, with a network giant entrusting the finale of one of its most popular shows to the 5D Mark II (which happens to be the first digital camera to take the Presidential portrait as well).

As of March 9, Hulu will lose the rights to the two half-hour shows, but that doesn't mean they're disappearing from the Internet entirely. Full episodes will still be streamed on TheDailyShow.com and ColbertNation.com.

This is an odd choice to post as the link in question really isn't an in-depth article as much as it is a five frame slideshow done in Flash. Soon all of your news will be in slideshow format. Thanks, CNN.

Hey look at that, whitewall tires might be making a comeback. Also, with that bubble top doesn't this look a little bit like the concept car Homer Simpson once tried to build?

Eleven mediocre television shows with awesome theme songs.Eleven mediocre television shows with awesome theme songs.

Take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about the television shows you may have used to watch. The combination of DuckTales and Rescue Rangers still holds a special place in my heart (although not mentioned on said list). Hey, remember The Jets?
