• Not sure what I've gotten myself into, but I'm going 24 hours without tech for the National Day of Unplugging. Stay tuned to see how it went...

• Researchers are working on robotic jellyfish, which means sharks with laser beams can't be far away, right? Gulp.

• OK, everyone calm down. That iPad heat issue? It's pretty much a non-issue.

• Here's a hot topic though: BioWare may change the ending of Mass Effect 3 after a fan revolt, but should they?

• I mean, really, these companies couldn't come up with better names for their products than this?

• Go ahead, call your dad a geek. He'll love it. No, really.

• Been saving your pennies? This Leica camera costs $31,792.

• We know we're not the only Draw Something addicts out there. Send us your drawings for a chance to be featured in an upcoming photo gallery. Our favorite will also win two cool prizes!

• Here's a screwy DIY project, and we mean that in the best possible way.

• This DIY project is awesome too. It's like a little part of Super Mario Bros. come to life.

• Low Latency No. 15: Where the DeLorean has been replaced by an app.

• Once again, the Crave podcast delves into the world of weird with talk of human meringues and hand cranks.
