Geek Surfing, Volume 1

Need a little geek reading? Check out some of these articles!

I was a little disappointed to hear that Marble Saga Kororinpa does not make full use of the Balance Board. After reading this review however, I am curious to see what the game has to offer.

All the practice with the wiimote should make it easy for me to mow my lawn when these are readily available.

My friend Geoff would totally dig this show, Star Wars: Musical Journey. It was successful in its debut enough to come to the US, so maybe he'll get the chance to see it :)

In tech news, if you're waiting for a Dell smartphone, don't hold your breath. Apple fans can take heart in the fact that Steve Jobs still has his fingers in the apple pie.

My husband the sports geek would find these baseball cards amusing. I've spent so much time in card shops that I think they're pretty cool myself.

Worried about Conficker? The best way to test for it is to view the Conficker Eye Chart. For a good explanation of how it works, try this article.

Yelp, a site which features user ratings of restaurants and other venues is bowing to pressure and allowing the businesses to post their own comments. I don't have a problem with this in principal, but I have a hard time believing it will work out much better than any celebrity vs. the press.

I'm fully convinced that produce is best obtained from a farmer's market or grocery store. If you're the home gardener type, Lifehacker suggests this potato growing method.

And last but not least, the ultimate in geek clothing: a suit which makes you stronger. Personally, I think I'll wait it comes in pink :)
