Anonymous and the like have plagued corporations and government entities alike for years now, and despite dozens of arrests, attacks are as prevalent as ever. Everyone's finally waking up to the problem, and it's a huge boon to the geeks we've been ignoring for years.
Have you ever thought about what a classic like Super Mario Bros would be like if you added a portal gun into the mix? Wonder no more; the folks at Stabyourself have released Mari0 – a glorious remake of the classic platformer now with just a touch of portal jumping-magic.
Slingshot guru Joerg Sprave seems set on making the innocent-yet-violent daydreams of our youth into wait-this-can-actually-kill-people reality. Last week it was a famous anime slingshot-spear.

With all the rumours of the Galaxy S III, it’d be easy to forget that the Galaxy S II is quite a formidable champion of Android in its own right.

It might even be enough to get me to buy a Xbox 360 again.
Confirming what we understood from our little hands-on with the Nokia 808 PureView, the beastly 41-megapixel-camera tech that forms the heart of the not-so-budget Symbian handset is crossing over to the Lumia line soon.
In 1984, Apple launched an ad campaign based on George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, which depicted IBM users as mindless followers and Mac users as visionaries and rebels. Now, the man behind it, Regis McKenna, has explained that he think it was more successful than the product it attempted to sell.
Great ideas for band names pop up all the time. Just last week, Vapour Rush was suggested as a possible name for my future Brit Rock project — a phrase stolen from a medical device designed to treat emphysema.
