Google Patents Displaying Athletes On Sports Fields
Christ, I did this for a startup back in 2000. You've got to be freakin' kidding me. It's not even an invention! It's a way of doing things! Just because it's done on a screen doesn't make it brand new!

400 Turns of Civilization V
I'm actually looking forward to some of these changes now... paying upkeep for roads makes sense to me. They're more like interstate highways now, not the roads that go every-which-way. The new way to expand your cities and develop culture sound good, too.

Typing With Your Brain

Seriously, tho, combine this with Bluetooth, and we've got ourselves a winner. Connect to your PC, cell phone, PS3, whatever. I'll go in for the surgery as soon as it's availa... wait. Can I also move a mouse with my thoughts? Using a computer with just keys could be harsh these days.

Universal Lands Rights To Asteroids Movie
Geeze, guys, this is amazingly old news. Big, expensive movie about rocks that'll crash into each other unless they get blown up? I loved it when it came out the first time... when it was called Armageddon. And Deep Impact.
