Set in a dystopian future, The Hunger Games contrasts the lives of poor District residents with those of the cutting-edge Capitol citizens. Despite cataclysmic natural disasters and human-made war, the astounding technological innovations of Panem appear throughout the series in the form of hovercrafts and miracle medicine. 2012 does not have invisible Earth-based spaceships and sci-fi force fields, but the future may not be as far off as we'd think. Check out how the "not real" technology of The Hunger Games stacks up to the real world of today.

Hipstamatic definitely has its benefits. By forcing you to choose your film and lens before you shoot your photo, you learn the nuances of each. But Instagram's 10 million member community (and growing) is one to be reckoned with. Both worlds will collide with the latest Hipstamatic update coming tonight that will allow you to share your Hipstamatic pics straight to Instagram, along with the usual suspects of Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, and email. Your pics can be uploaded through the Hipstamatic app and tagged with the #Hipstamatic tag on Instagram — one of the more popular tags within the community — for sharing.
But that's not all — Hipstamatic will also include some cool tagging features in this update, allowing you to tag your lens and film to document how you captured your shot, and tag your Facebook friends in photos right from the app. You can also view each photo's history to see where the pics were taken, and zoom in and out to see all your HipstaPrints.
Are you using Hipstamatic? If you're new to the app, here are some tips for using Hipstamatic like a pro. Happy snapping!

At first glance, you may not think that The Hunger Games and Lord of the Rings have much in common — Katniss in The Hunger Games battles her fellow Tributes to be the last one standing, while Frodo leans on his Fellowship to get him through his quest to destroy the one ring to rule them all — but they do share similar story lines. Both films are about survival, journeying into the unknown, and unseen forces that cannot be controlled.
You know your favorite tales inside and out, but can you tell the difference between the two just by quotes from the movies and books? Find out how well you know your Hunger Games and Lord of the Rings quotations in this quiz.

Sending a picture to a friend is now as easy as a beam between iPhones, no email or Facebook login required. First step in getting the WiFi wavelengths to work their magic is to have both Apple devices, whether it's an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch upgradde to iOS 5.1. Once the latest operating system is in gear, download the new iPhoto app for iOS ($5) to both gadgets. If you're transferring photos between your own iPhone and iPad, the app should be loaded on to both devices, granted the same iTunes account is used with each.
Once in iPhoto, select the Gear icon to change the settings and turn Wireless Beaming on within both phones. Both devices need to be on the same wireless network and have iPhoto open. Tap the image you want to send, then hit the Share icon. The Share screen will appear with a number of ways to send photos; since we're beaming a photo, select the Beam icon. Again, you'll be asked to select the image or images to share. Then, find your friend's iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch listed in the iOS Devices Found menu. Tap their device's name, and once they accept the transfer, your photos will wirelessly beam to their Apple product, as seamlessly as if you were aboard a Star Trek Transporter.
