Nintendo has announced a new Yoshi-themed Nintendo 3DS XL console that's set to launch in conjunction with Yoshi's New Island on March 14th. The console is green, and features Yoshi running, being followed by a Yoshi egg. It should be noted that the console doesn't come with Yoshi's New Island as you might assume--that'll cost you a separate $39.99 if you want it. The 3DS XL itself will cost $199.99.
What do you think? Are you gonna pick up the Yoshi-themed 3DS XL? You can pre-order it now at Best Buy.

This morning, Twitter deployed its new site redesign, bringing the look and feel of the site up to date with modern design language tendencies. As you browse the site, you'll notice that the font is changed, your profile image and cover photo now appear at the top-left of the screen when perusing your timeline, and flat design elements are now in play. It looks good, and is a big improvement in my mind when compared to the previous design, as subtle as the changes are. It's also good to see the continuance of the flat design look that has been adopted by iOS 7, Facebook, and Windows Phone making its way through more tech companies.
All that said, it isn't enough to pull us away from our beloved Tweetbot, our preferred way of using Twitter. What about you? What do you think of the changes?
Also today, Facebook released it's new Paper app.

You can check out the full collection of paintings over at Brent's blog. Definitely worth a look.

If this matte stainless flatware looks familiar, that's probably because it's what Dave used when chowing down in 2001: A Space Odyssey. That makes it good enough to appear in our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide. It was already a classic by the time that film dropped in 1968. Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1957, the Georg Jensen set typifies the Danish architect's smooth space-age aesthetic. Now you can get a set of your very own.
You can pick up the Georg Jensen Arne Jacobsen 5-piece Steel Cutlery Set now from Amazon for $95.
