    The schedule for the All Points West Music and Arts Festival is here and our favorite geeks at College Humor will be performing all three days! Fitting? [Ricky Van Veen]

    Oegle is a brand-new service for dorks to meet friends online!  YIPEE!  Go to the website that picks another random user to have a one-on-one chat with each other.  Chats are completely anonymous though "there is nothing to stop you from revealing personal details." Seems like a great idea with absolutely zero chances of negative effects....NOT! [Omegle]

    There's a school in the UK that is offering a degree in social media.  For $5676 a year, you can get a degree in Facebook, Twitter, Bebo, etc. from the Birmingham City University. This is "about as brilliant as a degree in email would have been ten years ago. [Silicon Alley Insider]

    Skype will officially be available on iPhones tomorrow (ahead of schedule)!  BlackBerry users will have to wait until May. [CNet]

    Gizmodo spent 30+hours in the "ultimate battle" test: The Suggie vs. Slanket vs. Freedom Blanket vs. Blankoat. Here's what you should take away. "Get the Slanket if you're serious about staying warm while lying on your couch, the Freedom Blanket if you're not. Nobody anywhere should buy the Snuggie. The Blankoat is for rich people who can afford Icelandic wool. Bathrobes do not work, no matter how much you wish them to." WOW. [Gizmodo]

    Motorola annnounces the Evoke QA4 today.  Is anyone impressed? Not really. [Mobile Crunch]

    Look. Decision-making is difficult, and decisions have to be made constantly. What should I be for Halloween? Do I need a Porsche? Does my hipster facial hair make me look stupid? Is Phoenix a good place to retire? Whom should I vote for? What toe ring should I buy? [Hunch]
