SF Signal has the final trailer for Wall E today.

Digital Spy has an interview with Peter Davison about returning to Doctor Who in the 4th season episode "Time Crash". Apparently his daughter will also appear in an upcoming episode.

Rob Thomas (creator of Veronica Mars) may be coming back to the CW, but writing for a show I don't really want to see - they are developing a new version of Beverly Hills 90210.

CNet has a slideshow of Saturn's moon Enceladus today.

CNet also has a report that Apple as applied for a patent for a device that can play rented movies downloaded from iTunes, function as a DVR for live TV, and be remote controlled by an iPod.

A reason to watch David Letterman's top 10 list next Wednesday: it will be presented by the 10 main cast members from Battlestar Galactica, which premieres its 4th season on March 28th.

A neckband has been developed that can pick up nerve signals to the vocal cords and translate them into speech without the user ever making a sound. The device was demonstrated by making a voiceless phone call. You have to think about which words to transmit, but it is possible to think one set while saying another out loud. They plan to market this for people who have lost the ability to speak due to neurological diseases such as ALS.

CNet's Crave this week covered Vapourware, tech that is talked about but never actually released.

Several TV shows are still on the bubble: not yet renewed or canceled. Here is an article which breaks down the renewal chances of each. The verdict: although most shows we care about will probably be back, Jericho and Reaper are unlikely to return.

There may only be 7 Harry Potter books, but there will be 8 movies. Warner Brothers has announced they will split the final novel into 2 movies, to be released in November 2010 and May 2011. Day

DVRs for tonight:
9pm Lost & Reaper
