New trailer for Iron Man 2 now available online for your viewing pleasure.New trailer for Iron Man 2 now available online for your viewing pleasure.

Well then, this trailer certainly reveals more about the plot than the previous one did. For awhile I thought it was just going to be Tony Stark versus Randy the Ram - guess that's not the case anymore.

PlayStation Network outage causes some annoyance for owners of the PS3 console.PlayStation Network outage causes some annoyance for owners of the PS3 console.

Although Sony says it will have a fix by this morning, it has not yet said what went wrong. Anecdotal evidence points to a combination of DRM and firmware issues rather than a network outage.

Google files patent to possibly turn YouTube into some sort of video game service.Google files patent to possibly turn YouTube into some sort of video game service.

An interesting concept but I'd have to see it to believe it. From my personal experience watching many a YouTube video; the less interaction the better. Or this all could just be, as the source article states, another way for Google to inject more advertising into video content.

Chances are you probably won't notice anything overtly different since most of the rumored changes are under the hood (algorithms, indexes, what have you).
