Atari's old school wireframe shooter is heading to the big screen.

Recently, Hollywood's biggest production companies fought in a brutal bidding war for the privilege to adapt the old-school space-blaster Asteroids into a film. The winner? Universal Studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura (G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra) and Jeff Kirschenbaum (Wanted, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) are attached to the product. The script is to be penned by Matthew Lopez, who wrote this year's Race to Witch Mountain starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Apparently, Universal isn't stopping with Asteroids in their game-to-movie productions, as such classics as Battleship, Candyland and Monopoly are also in the works.

The Resident Evil movie series will also get one more installment, as director Paul W.S. Anderson (who directed the first film) is busy working on the script, which supposedly will take place in Tokyo and Alaska (Code: Veronica maybe?).

According to ShockTillYouDrop.com, the movie will be titled, Resident Evil: Afterlife and is set for release by September 17, 2010. No word if Milla Jovovich will be reprising her role as Alice.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
