Potential bad news for Evo owners: we’re seeing plenty of reports from folks having issues with the lower portions of their screens. Conspiracy theories say that the adhesive holding the glass is failing, causing the screen to peel up a bit and embark on a very slow journey to capacitive independence. This separation is causing excessive light leakage from below, a problem that we noted in our review but apparently gets continually worse as users spend more time massaging their screens — even those not being as hard on theirs as this guy was. No official response from HTC yet and we’re not sure just what a fix could be, but we have seen people do some wonderful things with duct tape.

So this fellow Stefan wasn’t content with just getting his wife an iPad. No sir, he thought he’d put all the rest of us to shame by ensconcing the Apple tablet inside some fine chocolate from London and then transporting the frozen concoction nearly six thousand miles to Cape Town, South Africa. There’s really not much more science to it than that, the chap wanted to surprise his better half and judging by the pictures on his blog, he succeeded spectacularly. Hit the source link to see for yourself.

Looking for some last-minute Project Natal scoopage before we head into E3 2010? You’ve got it — the LA Times has dished out details on the first four gesticulariffic games for the Xbox 360′s new camera attachment this weekend, and says nearly a dozen other Natal titles will be available at launch. First up are “River Rush” and “Obstacle Course,” the titles that inspired Parade Magazine to haphazardly flail appendages about last week, but there’s also info on “Living Statue,” which lets the social butterflies on Xbox 360 send video messages using singing, dancing avatars as a go-between. No video of this last quite yet, but on the off-chance you’re not tired of watching humans slap dust mites silly (we kid) you’ll find an unrelated Natal demo after the break.

It seems Pandigital read a bit too far ahead in the story of its Novel eReader. The Digital Readers, which has been covering the device extensively, reports that Kohl’s is currently going through something of a recall it so that Pandigital can install an updated firmware. Customers can return it for a full refund — and if the publication’s review is to be believed, that might be the best course of action. In one of the first impressions pieces we’ve seen, TDR lambasts Novel both as an e-reader as a tablet. Hardware is overtly heavy, screen is laggy, WiFi is broken, and it doesn’t charge over USB… but don’t just take our word for it. See and hear it for yourself in the video critique after the break — and if you’re still jonesing, JCPenny continues to list it on sale.
