London 2012 Olympics opening ceremonies highlights videos go live

If you somehow missed the best bits of the 2012 Olympics opening ceremonies in London, NBC and several friends have begun releasing some rather tiny shreds of video for you to watch over and over and over again right here and now. It all starts with one of the strangest shorts you're ever going to see: Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second greeting none other than the most recent James Bond: actor Daniel Craig. Then it's immediately back to the business of massive rings of fire, bell players, and Rocket Men - with of course a dash of tradition thrown in here and there as well.

Summer Olympics 2012 opening ceremonies streaming in London

It's time to check out all the streaming live video streams we can for the kickoff of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. This is the third time that London has hosted the Olympics, with their first being all the way back in 1908 and the next just a few years after the end of World War II in 1948. Here in 2012, it's time for a party - and without a doubt the entirety of England will be in rare form throughout the events which start off tonight with an above-average strange set of characters that'll only be come apparent once the ceremony has begun - Voldemordt and Mary Poppins have been tipped.

New iPhone 5 cases appear in UK with 4-inch display

Those of you looking for more clues as to what the new iPhone will look like when it's revealed later this year will be glad to see another set of cases full of clues popping up today. What we're seeing here, courtesy of Mobile Fun UK's secret sources, is a set of iPhone 5 (or whatever the New iPhone will be called) case images that point toward many of the elements we've been seeing the past few weeks. If these cases are correct, we'll again have the same width device that's taller and has a headphone jack at the bottom rather than the top - and the display will be 4-inches, too.

Ofcom delays UK LTE spectrum auction to “early 2013″

LTE continues to expand throughout the United States and in many countries around the world, but the UK is still waiting on Ofcom to give the go-ahead on the necessary spectrum auction to support the technology.

Yes, you just read that right, there are indeed mummies being discovered off the coast of Scotland that are made up of the body parts (or at least the bones) of multiple humans, making them the living embodiment of the classic Frankenstein monster.
