This is a computer graphics clash in between the forces of Star Wars and Star Trek in and above San Francisco. Who gains? I’m not saying, that would be a spoiler. I’m joking, the video’s called ‘Death Star Destroys Business’. It’s a special prolonged re-release of this crappier variation made in 2009. Can you think I remembered that? ME NEITHER. It resembles how some days I can’t remember my ATM PIN however I could easily stand there singing the whole f \*\*\* ing DuckTales signature tune. Whoo-oo!
Struck the jump for the video.

“What about the lime light?”
Because you can’t just throw a convention these days without two rival nerd gangs going at it, a group of Doctor Who and Star Wars fans at the Norwich Sci-Fi and Film Convention got into a heated argument about something that’s probably just going to make us all sad.
Both sides admitted there had been a long-running rivalry between the Norwich Sci Fi Club and the Norwich Star Wars Club.
The dispute erupted after the treasurer of Norwich Sci Fi Club, Jim Poole, arrived at the event hosted by the rival club at the University of East Anglia.
He was asked to leave as he approached Doctor Who actor Graham Cole for an autograph – leading to a stand-off which was only resolved by police and university security.
A spokesman said: ‘After lengthy investigation, talking to witnesses and reviewing good CCTV footage, it was confirmed that there was no assault.
‘The two rival groups were spoken to and advised to keep out of each other’s way.’
Well that was depressing. But seriously, who do you think would win in a fight — a Star Wars fans or a Doctor Who fan? My money’s on any bystander who just feels like throwing a punch.
Thanks to CMW and Mike C, who allegedly know a guy who got shanked with his own sonic screwdriver for calling Jabba a fat shit.

Electronic Arts and Disney announced a multi-year agreement today that will see future Star Wars video games exclusively developed and published by EA. This news comes a little over a month after the house of mouse made the decision to stop internal development at LucasArts. EA’s developers scheduled to take on the Star Wars universe include DICE (Battlefield), Visceral (Dead Space) and BioWare, the latter of which will continue development of its already released Star Wars MMO (The Old Republic). The financial terms of the agreement have yet to be disclosed, but EA will create games for a “core gaming audience” while Disney will produce casual titles for mobile and social outlets. Now that the force is strong with EA, our fingers are crossed for a new installment in the KOTOR franchise.

Beep boop boop bee squeee! Happy May 4th aka Star Wars Day (say the date out loud and you’ll figure out why). In celebration, quite a few hardware vendors have released special gear for the day, thereby allowing you to celebrate the magic of George Lucas in proper Mandalorian fashion.
First we have a charming facsimile of R2-A6, a green R2 unit that is a favorite of the Naboo security forces. Made by Mimobot, this sassy little droid you’re looking for comes with built-in content, including desktop backgrounds and icons. They also make a Jar Jar Binks USB key if you’re so inclined.
Next we have something from Lucasfilm lawsuit recipient Wicked Lasers whose Arctic laser looks like everything but a replica of a light saber. To celebrate May 4th, the company has released the $ 75 Phosforce that turns the Arctic laser into a white LED flashlight that can pump out an Ewok-blinding 500 lumens, allowing you to swing your thing around in the dark swamps of Dagoba or the back alleys of Coruscant.
To be clear, the Phosforce attachment must be purchased in addition to the $ 299 laser body and the adapter turns the Arctic’s decidedly dangerous blue laser light into eye-safe white light. It is not exactly an LED flashlight in the traditional sense but instead uses white-emitting phosphor. Also, to be clear, you can burn the heck out of your eyes if you mess with this thing wrong, so be careful.
Happy fourth and remember: Han shot first. May you live long and prosper.

The Nook HD+ came out last December to blended testimonials. The device had a fantastic screen but troublesome bugs caused laggy performance and reduced scores. The company has brought out an updated variation and we had a look.
The 9-inch Nook HD+ is a Retina-quality tablet with a very basic mission – it wishes to replace the iPad in the entry-level tablet market. It runs an acceptably fast 1.5 GHz processor that powers a 1,920 × 1,280-pixel display. This implies images are exceptionally bright on the gadget and video is more than acceptable. When we initially looked at the HD+ in December on Fly or Pass away, I offered the HD+ a fly even with its limited functionality at the time and its lack of a camera.
The B&N party line is that this device is updated and I presume there’s a reason they are running through these with a brand-new round of testimonials. Since I didn’t include a formal review when it first came out – I was much more amazed by the Nook HD – so it’s worth revisiting this tablet.
As it stands, the Nook HD+ is mainly a “dumb tablet” with a couple of smart tablet features. You can run a variety of apps and games and view Nook Video together with other video from carriers like Crackle and Ultraviolet. This upgrade likewise enhances the speaker (it’s still mono) and improves efficiency.
The sad thing is, the peculiarities that afflicted the initial HD+ are present here. When turning on the gadget, for example, you see a quick “scurried” image that recommends a problem with either the backlight or the LCD. This “fuzz” appears occasionally while moving through apps and displays but it does not show itself when you’re reviewing a book.
In terms of absolute efficiency the Nook suggests solidity but not pep. Changing between displays, at least while reading, is acceptably rapid and much faster than it was in the initial launch. As for basic app performance I saw a little an improvement over the previous software iteration but absolutely nothing to write house about. The HD+ is dreadful in direct sunshine, so don’t even think about going outdoors with it. This is an indoor ereader.
I think, the sad thing is, the 9-inch tablet market has actually been flattened by the phablets and 7-inchers of the world. That being sacked, the type factor is still great for folks looking for even more screen realty or larger fonts. For those clients, the HD+ excels. It is virtually half a pound lighter than the iPad as well as lighter than the Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch. At $ 269 it’s priced practically right and, for a quick duration, you might get a Nook Simple Touch for free of cost with purchase. That advertising is over but you do get a $ 50 credit from Barnes & Noble for books and content.
So right here’s exactly what fears me: the ereader world has actually been stagnant because the holidays and the two-for-one deal, while generous, didn’t seem to bode well for B&N. This really somewhat upgraded HD+ is a strong piece of hardware but it’s still not quite approximately, say, the requirements of likewise equipped – but not likewise priced – Android tablets. The Nexus 10, is $ 100 even more than the HD+ and, by all metrics, a better device. The iPad with Retina screen is a bit more expensive, to be sure, and might not be exactly the device the newbie, ereading user is looking for. Nonetheless, the efficiency and develop quality is far exceptional.
So who should get an HD+? I think individuals who adore to continue reading larger displays. While there is a variety of video material available, that’s not the draw right here. The 3 primary draws are, in order, price, cost, and cost. If you’re already a Nook user and you’re searching for a larger reader, this could be the model for you. If you’re trying to find a real tablet, you may need to look elsewhere.

Tom Bingham makes custom electric guitars out of the Star Wars spaceship toys he buys at car boot (trunk) sales (aka stolen goods sales). That’s cool, but not near as ICE COLD as the ice cream bar I’m eating right now. It’s strawberry — you jealous? No? What if I told you I was lying when I said it was strawberry and it’s actually a chocolate Drumstick? Still no? Orange Flintstones push-up pop? Okay, what’s your favorite ice cream? Because that’s what it is, it’s your favorite kind. I’m totally eating your favorite kind of ice cream right now and you are not.
Hit the jump for a video of Tom playing the Millennium Falcon.
