Star Wars toy lets you use The Force?

Teen jailed for cyber-bullying (like we've never heard that before...)

Star Wars Toy With "Force Powers" Gimmick

"Do or do not, there is no try." Yoda said it nearly thirty years ago, but the wise words of the Jedi master still ring true, even today; especially now as a Jedi training device - cleverly disguised as a toy to shield it from the eyes of the Empire - is finally available to buy.

The trainer comes with a special headset that can detect brain waves and then relay the information back to the base unit. When you concentrate, a chip in the device registers it and activates a tiny air jet under the training remote. With fifteen levels of skill it won't be long before you're lifting X-Wings out of swamps.

The Force Trainer costs $119.99 and can be purchased here. Who knows, you might discover that you're actually telepathic after all.

UK Teen Jailed For Cyber-Bullying

18 year old Keeley Houghton has been given three months in a young offenders' institute and a five month restraining order after threatening to kill someone on Facebook, the first person in the UK to be jailed for cyber-bullying. Houghton claimed that she wrote the messages late at night while drunk and had no memory of it, but it was quickly shown that that was not the case.

The comments were posted at 4pm on the 12th of July and remained on Houghton's Facebook page for 24 hours before being removed. The police became involved when Ms Houghton approached the victim Emily Moore while she was out with her boyfriend, ostensibly to apologize, but then became threatening when her apology was rebuffed. Houghton has two prior convictions for bullying Ms Moore, including one in 2005 for assaulting her on the way home from school which led to Houghton's expulsion.

While Houghton appeared contrite during her hearing and admitted her involvement, District Judge Bruce Morgan was unimpressed, saying: "Since Emily Moore was 14 you have waged compelling threats and violent abuse towards her ... Bullies are by their nature cowards, in school and society. The evil, odious effects of being bullied stay with you for life ... On this day you did an act of gratuitous nastiness to satisfy your own twisted nature."

Hot or Not? Fake Fallout Movie Trailer

Hey even though it's fake, and uses clips from movies, it's still pretty awesome.

Marvel Boss Teases Avengers Movie

The Avengers movie may not be scheduled to even begin filming for another couple of years, but Kevin Feige, President of Marvel's movie division Marvel Studios is clearly a man who likes to think ahead. In an interview with CBR, Feige talked about the studio's plans for the 2012 movie.

We've already seen some cross-pollination between the movies, and that trend will continue, with Samuel L Jackson's Nicky Fury continuing to pop up all over the place. Fiege also said that Scarlett Johannsen has signed on to appear in the Avengers movie and that the appearance of the Hulk was also pretty likely, although was unsure whether or not Edward Norton would return to play the character.

With a Thor Movie in production and a Captain America movie scheduled to start shooting in October, and with the appearance of Hawkeye in Iron Man 2, it sounds like the line-up for is pretty much sorted. If all the upcoming Marvel movies are even half as good as Iron Man was, the Avengers movie is going to be quite an event.
