Vader Tots Via Wife-Fi

When you join The Dark Side, you get cookies. Or so you’re told. At first bite, though, it’s clear by the wooly taste upon your tongue that you may have just misheard the word “Wookiees.” An easy mistake to make, I suppose. Either way, you’re in for a sweet-tooth-soothing explosion of flavor.

Some initiates may opt for other treats, such as Ewok-fried rice, tauntaun bonbons, spare Bib Fortunas, or a soothing cup of chocolatey delicious Swiss Chiss.

But I’d avoid the Mon Calamari unless you’re 100% sure it’s fresh.

Me? I go with Vader Tots. I’d advise dining on them in moderation, however, as they’re heck on anyone with asthma.

10 out of 11 registered Gnomies wrap savory strips of Gamorrean around just about everything — from chocolate to hot dogs. “Tastes just like bacon!” I’ve been told. Mmmmm, bacon.

Mozilla Launches BrowserQuest – a Look at the Possibilities of Modern Web Technologies

We’ve known for a long time that HTML5 and other modern Web technologies have made it possible to do some remarkable things in a browser. Angry Birds has been available as a Web app, as have productivity apps such as Google Docs. But what about a massively multiplayer online game that allows you to fight creatures, build up your character, and adventure with friends? Mozilla has released an answer to this question with BrowserQuest, a massively multiplayer game that showcases what a modern browser can do without the needs of any additional downloads, plugins, or extensions.

Only Spiders and Jerks Don’t Adhere to Web Standards

Remember when websites would all but sabotage your attempts to access their content if you dared to wind up there by using a browser that the site’s webmaster didn’t like? While sometimes the only nuisance was in how poorly this content would appear in your maligned browser, some malicious sites would include code that was designed to actually crash your browser (if not your whole operating system) as punishment for being so clueless!
