Budweiser is looking for the best Crew of friends in America, and they're going to reward them just for being buds. It's the Band of Buds competition - and it's happening now at Band of Buds dot com. 25 winners from select cities will make it the finals in Las Vegas. One winning Crew will score $100,000 and a spread in Rolling Stone magazine. So how do you get to Vegas and potentially win it all? Go to Band of Buds.com - start a Crew with your three buddies, update your profile with stuff you did the night before, share your best photos and get friends to vote for you. The Crews with the most points in each participating city will be invited to a private Budweiser Casting Call party where they'll be judged on their style, game and how well they really know each other. One winning Crew from each Casting Call party will be sent to Vegas... but we can't tell you what will go down at the Finals just yet. No matter who is in your Crew, the next time you are all out, remember the full flavor and crisp, clean finish of Budweiser. It's the King of Beers. It's what we do. Band of Buds dot com. Check it out now.

No keyboard required! There truly isn't much to say about this new not-keyboard - just watch the video and prepare to be amazed. What up now, iPhone?! The guys then try out their typing skills and give it the old virtual keyboard try. Also, hit up Leo Laporte on Digg Alpha while you're at it!
Oh hey, Jim Raynor! Even Kevin is getting himself a little taste of the 'Craft! The launch of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty was a successful one for Blizzard Entertainment. The company announced just a week after its release, the game sold over 1 million copies worldwide in the first 24 hours alone, already making it the best-selling PC game this year. Go 'head, Blizzard!
The Kindle 3 is OUT and they sure look sexy. At 8.5oz and the girth of a pencil, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster today called for Amazon to drop the Kindle's price to $149 to avoid a collision with the iPad. But, may we remind ourselves, that it is an e-reader, not a tablet. The e-paper makes all the difference. Alex then explains how his latest directorial endeavor is going! Check out Neverland.
No time line has been given for when the car will be ready for the road, but we'd expect it to be at least a two-year lead-up to the first production models. Just in case you've forgotten how awesome the 918 Spyder Concept is: it's a 500-horsepower, 78-mpg, 9,200-rpm 3.4-liter V-8 hybrid all-wheel-drive sports car capable of 3.2-second 0-60 mph, 198 mph top speed, 16-mile all-electric range, and looks to stop traffic cold. All for a reasonable 600,000 bones! Alex is considering. Because this is one of the coolest looking cars we've seen in a while.
