Safe to say, the past 24 hours have Uber a little shook up. So shook, in fact, that it's been a little free and easy with statistics.

Rick and Mortyfans have been waiting for new episodes for over a year now, with nary a premiere date in sight. So it's understandable that the words "Exclusive! Season 3 Opening Scene" would elicit some fast and frantic clicks.

As the name implies, these palm-sized monkeys slip onto your finger like a giant, ridiculous ring. Fingerlings are motion and touch sensitive.
While most of the little battery-operated figure is fixed, the toy monkey's head turns and eyes open. That little bit of animation affords the monkey-bots an impressive amount of expression. WowWee told us that there are actually over 40-to-50 distinct animations and sound effects in Fingerlings. Read more...
Lego may be keeping upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII Lego sets under wraps — they literally had nothing to show for the upcoming film at New York Toy Fair — but that doesn't mean there aren't a whole bunch of new Star Wars sets on the horizon.
Lego has dozens of new sets and character variations, even tiny Mini Figures. The new Lego sets traverse, among others, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars Rebels TV series. Instead of presenting everything Lego has planned for the Star Wars Universe, we picked out the five coolest sets, ones that you'll probably want to add to your collection. Read more...

Through the years, we have all had many inspirational or witty quotes from role models, movies or actors plastered all over our Tumblr or Myspace pages to seem super cool, sophisticated and smart.
