Latvian meteor-like crater, most likely thought to be a meteor, not a meteor after all.Latvian meteor-like crater, most likely thought to be a meteor, not a meteor after all.

Apparenly real craters left by meteors are not as tidy as this one was and that don't appear to have been dug out with a shovel. Oh well. See yesterday's batch of links for original story.

Five things to hate about HDTV according to MSNBC.Five things to hate about HDTV according to MSNBC.

MSNBC doesn't care for black bars. Or television stations that don't broadcast correctly. Or overpriced HDMI cables. Or the messy artform that is color calibration. I don't like them either.

What's actually a surprise from an IndustryGamers report on the matter is that even in our crummy economy, it's the $250 version of the game -- bundled with all the instruments -- that's performing so well that Dauman says he expects a sellout by November.

Live action Star Wars television series might be hitting the air in 2012.Live action Star Wars television series might be hitting the air in 2012.

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.
