Sure, you could spend a while trying to solve the Rubik's Cube in Google's new Doodle, but that may get a little dry. Google was clearly prepared for that eventuality, though: it has just launched the Cube Lab, a Chrome experiment that lets you build your own internet-based puzzle. So long as you'

If there's anything you can expect out of a sequel, it's more explosions, action and dumb dialogue. That about sums it up for this new \"Rubik's Revolution,\" a supposed \"sequel\" to the original Rubik's Cube. The new cube keeps that 3 x 3 configuration and the iconic colored sides, but adds in electr
