Now this is a dish best served cold. As you may or may not have noticed, we spent the weekend in somewhat muggy, sometimes sunny San Diego braving the crowds inside the San Diego convention center so that you didn't have to. Here's a quick walkthrough of booths we admired, and things like soon-to-be-released toys and peripherals in honor of the upcoming movie TRON, dozens of designer toys, lifelike dolls, and a kid dressed up as Jamie Hyneman. Also, be sure to check out our quick walkthrough of Comic Con on day one and day two, and our stay at Flynn's Arcade.

It’s not your imagination: More and more, the products released by PC makers are beginning to look more and more like something cooked up at an Apple lab in Cupertino -- and it may be their only hope of playing catch-up with the iPhone maker.

If you love Legos, then maybe you've heard about the upcoming Massively Multiplayer Online game, Lego Universe, currently in development by NetDevil. The game takes place in an alternate universe with tons of Lego minifigures who are on the path to seek the last bit of pure imagination. The antagonists in this virtual world are the Stromlings, who are controlled by a dark force known as Maelstrom, and who can turn innocent minifigures to the bad side. The game is officially available to play on October 26 of this year. Check it out in the video below!
