Weekend Wrapup: 'This thing is back' Edition!


Oh god, how did I get here? I am not good with computer.

Yes, true believers, your eyes do not deceive you: Weekend Wrapup is back, and I'm running the show this time. Surely you've missed out on some of the excellent stories, reviews, and odd news we posted over the week, and this column is here to remedy that fact! This isn't a list of everything we posted this past week, instead it's what you should have payed attention to! I don't just link to any old story... I only link to the best.

So hit the jump and check out all the highlights, as well as the BEST story this week. Oh, and I'm also linking to awesome community posts too. Because you deserve it. I learned that one from my advertising professor.
