Reports are that Lucasfilm has filed for approval for 6 different titles for Indy 4. Which do you think they'll use (assuming they all pass)?
"Indiana Jones and the City of Gods"
"Indiana Jones and the Destroyer of Worlds"
"Indiana Jones and the Fourth Corner of the Earth"
"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"
"Indiana Jones and the Lost City of Gold"
"Indiana Jones and the Quest for the Covenant"

Anjelica Huston will guest star on 6 episodes of Medium this season.

Good music news:
- John Lennon's solo work is now available to download (legally) making George Harrison the only iTunes holdout of the Beatles (although his Traveling Wilbury's songs are available).
- Paul McCartney reports that the Beatles library is being remastered for download now and should be available by the end of the year.
- James Taylor is putting together a retrospective of 40 years of songs, to be sold in Starbucks by the holidays.

There's a competition to make the Jetsons a reality: build a personal plane that can be used like a flying car. It clearly has a long way to go, but the concept and pics are fun.

Someone has developed a tool to uncover self-interest edits of Wikipedia (like Diebold removing criticism of voting machines). I'm glad someone is defending the accuracy.

Old-school game fans: They have found the source code for Adventure (the very first text adventure game - even before Zork).
Now if they could only find a version of Welltris that plays like the original (sigh). Mom, while thinking of this, did I mention that the creators of Heaven & Earth have provided the game as a free download and it works on XP? I found it a week or 2 ago.

Pictures from NASA's underwater training for the moon.

Serenity now has a Collector's Edition DVD. To see what's new, click:

Google Maps just keeps getting better. The new feature to debut next week: you can embed a functional map into a web site or blog (even My Maps and driving directions) by just clicking a button and copy/pasting a few lines of HTML.
