Moving on, what's abuzz in the world of technology and pop culture this week?

--I'm looking forward to Green Day Rock Band, but here's a list of the other most anticipated games for the rest of 2010.

--The Feds are looking into those hacked iPads from last week.

--My sister's apartment has become a two-iPad home. Here are some tips and tricks if you couldn't hold off either.

--Subway riders have another reason to say FML: 'A service merger means that a Manhattan station now bears the acronym of one of the Web's best-known profanities for expressing frustration.'
