Nintendo has stated, firmly and more than once, that it won't be bringing its proprietary titles to mobile formats. If The Legend of Zelda were to come to mobile, though, we don't think it could do a better job than the newly released Oceanhorn.
NASA on Thursday revealed the first imagery of what the Milky Way galaxy likely looked like when it was much younger.
Thanks to evidence gathered by the Hubble Space Telescope, NASA has been able to determine what our galaxy looked like billions of years ago. Though the space agency obviously wasn't able to take actual photographs of the Milky Way in its infancy, it intuited its conclusions based on Hubble's observations of 400 similar galaxies.
As NASA wrote in a post on the Hubble's Web site:A scale model of the Milky Way can be imagined by … Read more
Lots of people are obsessed with Legos, but one man in particular is obsessed with Legos in washing machines and the shapes they form when tumbling: Ingo Althöfer is a professor of applied mathematics at Friedrich-Schiller University in Germany.
Althöfer decided to see what would happen when you take an old Miele washing machine, add Lego bricks, and let it run. One method involves setting a Lego base plate and a selection of miscellaneous bricks into a sock and sending it through for a cleaning.… Read more
We can't even remember the last time we (or anyone we know) sat down for a rousing game of Monopoly. Could our interest be brought back from the dead?
Hasbro certainly has been trying, with various themed editions of the game over the last decade or two.

The clever costume design begins with a $13 kid's-play tunnel. After that, you need 6 yards of sandworm-tan fabric, mouth-pink fabric, posterboard, wire, and a large cardboard box. You will need some basic sewing skills to pull the costume off, but the end result is a wonderfully squirmy and toothy worm outfit.… Read more

Yahoo has been doing some housecleaning and stumbled across some dusty and musty domain names it had registered for forgotten reasons long ago. Wisely, Yahoo has decided it doesn't need to keep jockeys.com in its back pocket for a rainy day.
