Lego Lunchbox Looks Like A Bad Idea

It really does. Remember when you used to open your lunchbox for recess and the food inside would be soggy and have no flavor at all?  Lunchboxes are a science unto themselves.

Samsung Gets Smart, Cuts Price of 3D Glasses and More

I have long said one of the big reasons that consumers are staying away from 3D TVs and 3D in the home is that the TV makers were too greedy and tried to over charge for the tech and especially the glasses.
