This week, Landmark introduced lava. Also new gear, appearance slots, a better UI, and a zillion other tweaks. But lava. What else is new in the realm of MMO testing? Camelot Unchained began its pre-alpha test phase. Mark Jacobs answered a ton of reader questions in that comment thread, by the...

Wowsers! While we knew that September was a month of bug squashing and that meatier content updates would return to Landmark, this latest one seems extra juicy. It could just be that everything feels like a feast after a famine, but I think it's more than that -- and not just because it took multip...

Whenever I find lava in an MMO zone, my first instinct -- as in real life -- is to jump right into it and see if it will hurt me. If it does, then I die horribly while giving a salute to the developers for caring enough to make such a hazard more than a cosmetic visual. That's not to say that I ...

Okay, we're admittedly a wee bit stumped by what Lava's peddling here. The Lava B5 is a decent-looking, Bold-esque device with an ABCDE keyboard layout -- yeah, this kinda frightened our digits, too -- but as to what OS it runs or what network type it calls home is a complete mystery.

One man's junk is another man's treasure -- that's the bromide behind eBay. And sometimes if you look hard enough you can find a device that changes everything. An invention so magnificent, so unknowable, that its discovery alone could "make you feel good all over the world" without even making a...

The lava lamp was an icon of 70s pop culture, and that same idea has made it into the 21st century, right on the iPhone. iLava [iTunes link] imitates both a lava lamp, and the demo that Jeff Han gave us at the TED conference.
