Word has slipped out that Google and Verizon are working together on a tablet computer to do battle with the iPad. Hopefully, there'll be an announcement when Google unveils Google Editions, their new e-bookstore. And hopefully this thing will have a reading-friendly screen, like the Pixel Qi.

In other technology news, I kind of can't believe Slog hasn't yet reported that the next issue of Playboy will feature a 3D centerfold.
