CONCEPT NOTEBOOK GIVES YOU PORTABLE STAR TREK CONTROL PANEL
The interesting thing about those 1980s Star Trek Next Generation episodes is how those very fake looking control panels (black glass with colorful shapes for interfaces) are now, in the wake of the iPhone and iPad, becoming quite realistic. Thus this latest concept device is less pie-in-the sky design fancy, and now just another realistic alternative.

ATARI ANNOUNCES PLANS TO SELL OFF STAR TREK ONLINE DEVELOPER CRYPTIC STUDIOS
Doing business in the massively multiplayer online role-playing game space is tough going,
unless you happen to be Blizzard Entertainment or have a game called
World of Warcraft. Since
those two names go hand in hand, you probably don’t. Cryptic Studios doesn’t, though the team
there has plenty of experience with MMOs thanks to their fine work on releases like
Heroes/Villains, Star Trek Online and Champions Online. Unfortunately, experience doesn’t always
mean big subscription numbers, and the same losses that led to embracing a free-to-play, microtransaction-based business model for
Champions are now prompting parent company Atari to sell off Cryptic.

CNN BEAMS UP PREVIEW OF WEEKEND'S COMIC CON
I knew where I'd be tomorrow back in January, when we first mentioned that, oh, some guys named Stan Lee and Leonard Nimoy would be attending the Dallas Comic Con, which makes its move to the newly opened Irving Convention Center after years in Richardson and Plano. Figure we'll get there 'round 3ish: That's when Mr. Spock's scheduled to make what he cryptically tweets will be "a special program" of some kind. (Love that he ends every message with "LLAP.") Also on the guest list: Carrie Fisher (who, sadly, will not perform Wishful Drinking), Thomas Jane (who just wants his kids back) and a host of writers and artists familiar to anyone who's stepped foot in a comics shop lately.
