What To Expect From Apple’s WWDC Monday — What To Expect From Apple's WWDC Monday Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference is coming this Monday! Here's what you can expect from the company that brought you the iPod touch and then several subsequent generations of iPod touches. 1. Apple. This one's a lock.

What's Next For Android? — With Froyo, Google's latest dessert-themed update to its Android mobile OS, they added even more features users were clamoring for, like wireless syncing and hotspot support.

I Spent 7 Years (and My Soul) to Get Half Decent at a Baseball Simulator — The Boston Orphans have a four-game lead in the AL East, but it's not going to hold up. They're a baseball team that wasn't built to go the distance. The bullpen's too thin, and not even Todd Helton's shoulders are broad enough to keep carrying this offense.

Verizon Hearts Netflix, Apple Glups Flash, and Other Stories We Didn't Post — So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case. A play in one act.

Amazon's Gold Box Forum Is a Beautiful Pocket of Internet Insanity — It's an inviolable rule of the internet that if you provide people with a place to type words in public, chaos will follow close behind. Nowhere is this more true than the Amazon Gold Box forum, one of the internet's more delightful clearinghouses of crazy.

​Can Microsoft Make Faceputers Happen? — The next frontier of computing seems, fairly inevitably, the space directly in front of our eye holes. Nevermind that Google Glass washed out (for now), or that Oculus Rift is still a niche within a niche. Our wrists are being colonized. Our faces are next. And Microsoft, of all the players, might be the conquistador.

The Lego Movie Oscars Snub Is Garbage — This morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences-an institution that in March of 1995 declared Forrest Gump to be a superior film to Pulp Fiction, Shawshank Redemption, and Quiz Show (Quiz Show!)-has decided that The Lego Movie is not one of the five best animated movies of last year.
