We're hyped for the May premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness thanks to the film's numerous trailers, and the latest ode to J.J. Abrams's take on Captain Kirk and crew has us eagerly following the stop-motion drama from a Lego perspective.
Modeled scene for scene after the Dec. 17 trailer, watch the Lego Enterprise crew run from peril and question Benedict Cumberbatch's character's motives (including the through-the-glass Lego hand touch), with plenty of lens flares for authenticity.
When you really need to drive home your point, animated GIFs are just what the digital doctor ordered. Have a friend who complains a little too much? Tell 'em to deal with it. Roommates driving you crazy? Show them just how much.
GIFs fill in awkward gaps in electronic communication and express what mere words cannot. Since finding the right one is an art form, we've got two solid ways to get your Graphics Interchange Format on.
- Google Image Search — The Googs added support for animated GIF search today. In Google Image search, click on "Search Tools" just below the search bar, and, under the "Any Type" drop-down menu, select "Animated." Clicking on any of the results will open a preview of the animated GIF without having to load a new page.
- Giphy — This website is a dedicated search engine for GIFs. Type whatever you want into the large search bar at the top. As you type, Giphy will show you related searches and suggestions. Roll your mouse over the thumbnails to see the animation. Click through to share the GIF via Twitter, Tumblr, or Facebook, or grab an embed code.
Evernote Food (free), the foodie-friendly version of the popular digital note-taking app, released a new iOS update today that allows diners to reserve a table at popular restaurants and rate their meal afterwards. Evernote Food 2.1 comes with reservation system OpenTable and location discovery platform Foursquare built right into the app.
For wining and dining connoisseurs, Evernote Food is a one-stop shop for restaurant discovery and recipe archiving, which is why the app has also included integration with its flagship app Evernote in the latest update.
Recipes saved to Evernote will automatically sync to My Cookbook in Evernote Food. Chefs can also share their recipes with food-loving friends through Twitter, Facebook, or email.
Evernote found themselves in hot water earlier this month, when the company forced a service-wide password reset after their network was hacked. Before updating Evernote Food, make sure you've changed your password too.
Android users were left out of the latest Evernote Food update, unfortunately. But we'll keep you posted when the non-iOS Evernote Food 2.1 is download-ready.
Watch how Evernote works with OpenTable after the break.
Jenna-Louise Coleman, Doctor Who's latest companion, made her US talk show debut last night on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, who deemed the actress "the sauciest of all the Doctor's companions." She's got "a bit more moxie," explained Craig, an avid Whovian himself.
The second installment of season seven begins Saturday, March 30 at 8 p.m. ET on BBC America. Doctor Who, new companion Clara and all, returns to television just one day before the premiere of Game of Thrones's third season, which stars Jenna's main squeeze Richard Madden (geek match made in heaven, much?) who plays the ambitious Robb Stark on the HBO fantasy drama.
We can't wait to watch Doctor Who's latest adventures with Clara. What do you think of the new companion, Whovians?

Smartphones are advanced in so many ways, but in the battery-life department, our modern devices fail when we need them most. Mobile power users are forced to lug bulky backup wherever they go. That's where ChargeCard comes in.
The credit-card-sized tech accessory reimagines easily tangled smartphone cables into a flat, supercompact form. ChargeCard began as a Kickstarter project and raised triple its pledge goal in August 2012. The affordable charging "cables" ($25 each) for iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and Android are now available online and shipping worldwide.
We replaced our standard white 30-pin connector cables with the ChargeCard for a week, and now our wallets won't leave the house without it. Click on to find out how ChargeCard works and why it's our new must-have smartphone accessory for mobile mavens.
Sign online in the morning and it's likely your first stop of the day is a social network. We pour our lives into these digital communities, sharing party photos, funny videos, and clever status updates. Do you know who's looking at all these updates, though? Take today's Spring cleaning tips as the chance to finally update your social media privacy settings and take charge of the online image you're sharing with the world. Perform a social media audit by following these tips to put your best profile forward.
- Search yourself — Sign out of every social media account and view how your profile looks to a stranger. Does any embarrassing or questionable material show up that you'd rather future employers, family members, or anyone of significance not see? First, secure your public accounts if you prefer to control who sees your tweets and "likes." Update account privacy settings to further secure your profile from people you are already linked to, or play it safe and delete the material entirely. Go an extra step and Google your name to ensure there's really nothing wild out on the Internet you don't want others to see.
- Use a pseudonym — If you're looking to keep your online activity private, don't sign up for accounts under your full name. Also avoid usernames you used before privacy was a concern, you know, like that AIM handle from high school that's just slightly inappropriate for anyone over the age of 16.
- Use an alternate email — In addition to the alias, separate your social media accounts from your work and personal email by using a secondary email account in your profile information. This way people searching for your profile via your personal email address won't find you as easily. Don't worry if your Facebook or Pinterest account have already been created, you can change the default email address.
- Prevent future offenses — Avoid future online embarrassing moments by keeping your social record clean. Don't add photos of you raging at a party to Facebook or bite your digital tongue when it comes to ranting about a current work situation. Even with hypersecure privacy settings, a good rule of thumb is just never share images or thoughts online you wouldn't want forwarded to someone else, since anyone can screen capture your content.
We spy a truly genius alien disguise from Instagram user usinterior. The sci-fi snap was taken at the Snowy River Cave National Conservation Area near Roswell, NM. (Coincidence? We think not.)
The US Department of the Interior shares stunning images from national parks across the country, and we've got plenty of reasons why you should follow @usinterior if you need a little convincing.
Have you been testing out your photography skills and snapped a shot you want to share? Submit your pics to our Cool Capture group or to Instagram with the #CoolCapture hashtag, and your pic might be featured on the POPSUGAR Tech homepage. And don't forget to follow @popsugartech on Instagram!
Enter Starbucks on a weekday morning, and it'll likely be filed with Work From Home warriors, emailing, freelancing, and PowerPointing between latte sips. Free, reliable WiFi is a tech-savvy worker necessity, but for those with more tactile creative pursuits, the traditional coffee shop scene isn't conducive to, say, creating a line of wallets to sell on Etsy or experimenting with the latest in 3D printing technology. Specific needs like these are what caused Tim Wong to open FabCafe in the Shibuya neighborhood of Tokyo, as he told us at this year's SXSW Interactive.
Alongside the usual cafe fare like caffeinated drinks and small bites is the heart of Tim's vision, a studio where local designers can rent use of a laser printer to cut from Adobe Illustration files for about $20 per 30 minutes. Rather than going the way of a Kinko's where people come in to use the machines and leave in a hurry, FabCafe draws the local design community with artist lectures and workshops.
The workshops are when the six 3D printers are put to use, since the cost of the materials and machines makes regular renting of them less than feasible. Look for more FabCafe locations to open in Taipei and Barcelona this year. Take a look at some of the cafe's work, and tell us: what would you do at FabCafe if you had the chance?
