This is a bunch of videos of architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous house, Fallingwater, recreated in Minecraft, Quake III Arena, Counterstrike: Source, Half-Life 2, and The Sims 2 and 3. Now, not to brag or anything, but I’ve actually been to Mill Run, Pennsylvania to tour the house, and let me tell you: I would totally live there. “Jesus — and give up your 350-square foot studio with the meth lab next door?!” You’re right, I’m being crazy.
Hit the jump for all the videos.

Surely you remember Sanho’s HyperDrive lineup — ya know, the only portable HDD that plays nicely with the iPad? Well, if you don’t dig the $ 249 entry level price, you’re in luck. The company just announced a bunch of new HDDs for you to take with you and your iPad on that road trip you’ve had planned for years. The new drives no longer sport the QVGA color display or the CF and SD card slots — instead, the black case has two mini USB ports and a power socket. The HyperDrive doesn’t come with the traditional AC adapter but instead a USB-to-DC cable and the user-replaceable battery will allow up to 40GB of transfers on a single charge. And if you’re wondering why there’s two USB ports, we really couldn’t tell you. Perhaps if you choose the right port while connected to your PC and enter the Konami code, unicorns and fairy dust will pop out of your screen — wishful thinking, we know. The HyperDrives ship in March (pre-ordering is available now) with prices starting at $ 99 for a bring-your-own-drive housing, 1TB for $ 349 and various sizes in-between. So, if your photo/video library is worth accessing at all times, well, props to you. Press release is after the break.

Frank Mir v. Brock Lesnar III UFC Fight In Jeopardy: Will Twitterâ€™s Destructive Influence Never End?
Iâ€™m actually not here right now. I wrote this yesterday while listening to Kanye Westâ€™s new album, which Iâ€™m still deciding if I like or not. I think my opinion right now is, â€œMeh, I can take it or leave it.â€ (I think Big Boiâ€™s album is better, and Iâ€™ll never say a bad word about The Roots.) Nicki Minajâ€™s verse on â€œMonsterâ€ is pretty dope, but beyond that? Whatever. Maybe Kanye can go back in time and ask Eric B. and Rakim to teach him how to rap. That would be cool.
But on with the tech discussion!
UFC. A fine organization, and one that I support both monetarily, with the occasional PPV buy here and there, and with the constant attention I pay to it here on CG. Who could forget the time I interviewed Chuck Liddell and found out that he was among the first wave of iPad buyers? Those were special, special times for us all.
But this next story, man. Word on the street is that Dana White, the modern day Vince McMahon (in that heâ€™s a successful promoter—put down your pitchforks, Sherdog), may be letting his Twitter followers book fights for him. Iâ€™m pretty sure Joe Silva has done a good enough job of putting together fights without having to listen to all that #rabble.
In other words, because some of Whiteâ€™s Twitter followers donâ€™t want to see the fight, the average person out there, the person who doesnâ€™t spend all day long on Sherdog but rather gets their UFC news from SportsCenter, has a potentially great (and exciting!) fight ruined for them. Thanks, guys.
And that is â€œUFC news,â€ by the way. If you want any more evidence of how popular â€œMMAâ€ is, just look at the sales of EA Sports MMA. No buys. (Shame, too, since the game is pretty good.) But the fact is, itâ€™s UFC thatâ€™s popular today; nobody cares about â€œMMA.â€
The thing is that Brock Lesnar, who recently lost the heavyweight title to Cain Velasquez, needs an opponent. If you look at possible opponents—for the sake of argument, letâ€™s consider his possible opponents Mirko Cro Cop, Cheick Kongo, Frank Mir, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Ben Rothwell, and Brandon Schaub—the first, and only, that should even be considered is Frank Mir. Thatâ€™s probably an instant million plus buy event. And once Mir starts running his mouth? Thatâ€™s a million plus one, to be sure.
Why? Because Cro Cop is coming off a loss (to Frank Mir, as it were) and hasnâ€™t ever looked particularly good in UFC (of course, he was insane in his Pride days, but thatâ€™s a few years ago at this point); because Kongo hasnâ€™t done much in the past year (and would you really offer him up Lesnar following his performance against Travis Browne?); because Nogueira is clearly past it, and if he wins, what, does that set up Nogueira vs. Velasquez II (provided Velasquez beats Junior Dos Santos, which is by no means a forgone conclusion), a sequel to a fight that didn’t too many PPV buys to begin with?; because nobody is going to buy a PPV headlined by Rothwell v. Lesnar; and because Schaub is still probably one or two wins away, against a “name” opponent, to be considered â€œin the mix.â€
Iâ€™d mention Shane Carwin and Roy Nelson, but Carwin just had back surgery so heâ€™ll be out for a while, and Nelson has some sort of contract situation with a rival organization that would seem to preclude him from being used by UFC for the foreseeable future.
So, it should be Frank Mir. Mir v. Lesnar II headlined UFC 100, the fourth biggest PPV event of any kind in history. Lots of people tuned in because of the Mir-Lesnar dynamic. Letâ€™s just say the two of them wonâ€™t be fighting over the last drumstick at Thanksgiving dinner today.
Mir v. Lesnar has buys written all over it, but no. Because Whiteâ€™s â€œTwitterâ€ doesnâ€™t want the fight, the fight is in jeopardy.
Once again, Twitter has ruined everything. Lame.
And as if Twitter is indicative of anything of Planet Earth! Weâ€™ve seen time and time again this year that just because something is â€œtrendingâ€ doesnâ€™t mean, oh, golly gee, people sure are talking about this.
No, the people on Twitter are talking. Think of Twitter like youâ€™d think of a small town: word spreads fast there, but itâ€™s only spreading among the same dozen people over and over again. Itâ€™s hardly something youâ€™d base multi-million dollar business decisions on.
I wonder if some of these Twitter users are some of those same people who were against signing Lesnar in the first place, you know, because of his pro-wrestling background? Gotta keep MMA pure, right?
I guess these people forgot that Lesnar was also a Division I wrestling champion.
I donâ€™t know, I sincerely hope Dana White wonâ€™t allow himself to be bullied, 140 characters at a time, by such a vocal minority.
Question by miranda elizabeth: Mommy & “Uncle” Frank?
It’s Saturday morning and Bob’s just about to set off on a round of golf, when he realizes that he forgot to tell his wife that the guy who fixes the washing machine is coming around at noon. So Bob heads back to the clubhouse and phones home.
“Hello?” says a little girl’s voice.
“Hi, honey, it’s Daddy,” says Bob. “Is Mommy near the phone?”
“No, Daddy. She’s upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Frank.”
After a brief pause, Bob says, “But you haven’t got an Uncle Frank, honey!”
“Yes, I do, and he’s upstairs in the bedroom with Mommy!”
“Okay, then. Here’s what I want you do. Put down the phone, run upstairs and knock on the bedroom door and shout in to Mommy and Uncle Frank that my car’s just pulled up outside the house.”
“Okay, Daddy!” A few minutes later, the little girl comes back to the phone. “Well, I did what you said, Daddy.”
“And what happened?”
“Well, Mommy jumped out of bed with no clothes on and ran around screaming, then she tripped over the rug and went out the front window and now she’s all dead.”
“Oh, my God! What about Uncle Frank?”
“He jumped out of bed with no clothes on too, and he was all scared and he jumped out the back window into the swimming pool. But he must have forgot that last week you took out all the water to clean it, so he hit the bottom of the swimming pool and now he’s dead too.”
There is a long pause.
“Swimming pool? Is this 854-7039?”

I don’t get the whole Paul Frank thing myself, but apparently many of you like to buy things with a monkey on them. Paul Frank has dabbled in the iPod/iPhone case market and even headphones, but now there is an iPod Dock.
It’s in the shape of Julius of course and is called the Julius Dance Machine. In between the monkey’s hands is the iPod dock in a cradle and according the the specs it will work with all generations of iPodâ€™s. Not sure about iPhones. He will give you about 6 hours on single charge.
There’s also a 3.5mm stereo mini plug audio input for external music sources. Nothing yet on price or any other details, but you can expect it sometime in July.
