Millennium Falcon Lands at LEGOLAND®

There are things that just go together. Much like peanut butter and jelly, so does Star Wars and Lego Bricks. With the recent announcement that LEGOLAND® California is introducing an all-new, dedicated STAR WARS Miniland, it’s time to channel the force for some fun. Especially when you see just how big the Millennium Falcon is.

Following a chronological path through the STAR WARS timeline, LEGOLAND guests retrace the major events of the beloved Saga. Some of the 2,000 LEGO models will be more than 6-feet-tall. Interactive buttons will allow children to activate animations throughout the scenes. “Our guests have really enjoyed our LEGO STAR WARS Days over the years and we’re certain this new area is going to ignite the imaginations of adults and children alike,” said General Manager of LEGOLAND California, Peter Ronchetti. “We are opening this STAR WARS Miniland display just in time for spring break.”

Review: EyeTV HD

For quite sometime I’ve been searching for the a way to record HD Video to my Laptop. There have been tons of options but many of them were PC only, which usually included a ridiculous price tag. Being a Mac user my options were rather limited. During a rather long google search I found a forum that recommended the EyeTV HD. I’ve had a couple of weeks to review the device.

So is the EyeTV HD the ultimate in affordable Video Recording options? How well does it work? Full Review and Video Quality Test after the break.

I’ve had a couple of weeks with the DCUO Beta on the PS3. So is it the next World of Warcraft? How does it hold up to other MMOs. What’s my take as a resident DC Comics fan? Special Preview Video and write up after the break.

What an interesting event the 2010 VGA Red Carpet was, especially considering that there was no red carpet at the event.
