Here’s some tasty-looking hard candy. And here’s that same tasty-looking hard candy scanned by an SEM. Tuns out that there’s a company offering to stick almost anything under an electron microscope and we can’t help but wonder: What to pick

Sprint Cuts Palm Pixi’s Price to $50 [PalmPixi]

Capitalism! Sprint was cool offering Palm Pixi for $100, until Verizon’s Palm Pixi Plus slid in underneath at $79. Well Sprint’s having none of that, slashing the original Palm Pixi’s price to a mere $50 for new customers, after all of the rebates and contracts and what have you. Remember , the candybar Pixi doesn’t have Wi-Fi and has a slightly smaller screen than the Pre, but if you or someone you know isn’t quite ready for a big boy phone, a $50 Pixi could be hard to resist. Also remember , hard times ahead for Palm.

NASA has released their first iPhone game. It’s called the NASA Lunar Electric Rover Simulator and, instead of making me happierer than a kid in a candy store wearing a Batman cape, reading the description makes me sad: Welcome to the NASA Lunar Electric Rover (LER) Simulator. You don’t need a driver’s license, but you still need to buckle up as the LER Simulator gives you a glimpse of what it might be like to support the activities of a functioning Lunar Outpost. Get busy

You might already know that the speed of light is 299,792,458 meters per second, but now you can confirm that number by playing kitchen scientist and melting chocolate. And then you eating the results. The folks at Wired think that this physics experiment is ideal for all the leftover Valentine’s Day candy, but I think it’s great all year round
