Steve Wiebe to Attempt 'DK' Record, Google Buys Picnik Photo Editing Site

There's a load of great tech news happening out there every day, and, unfortunately, we just can't cover it all. Here are a few of the other noteworthy things we saw today on our never-ending journey through the wild, wild Web.
  • Steve Wiebe, focus of the oddly riveting 2007 'King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters' documentary (which should be thanked for bringing the "kill screen" phrase into common parlance), will be attempting another record-breaking 'Donkey Kong' run next week at the Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco.

  • 'New Yorker' film critic Anthony Lane takes a look at the history and culture surrounding the third dimension in film. [From: New Yorker]
  • Google's purchasing spree shows no signs of slowing with the company's recent acquisition of online photo editing site Picnik. No updates to the site yet, but don't be surprised to see some of Picnik's features integrated into Picasa soon. [From: geeksugar and Google]
  • If you still haven't settled on a browser, Opera's just-released 10.5 update, which the company is describing as the "fastest browser on Earth," might be worth a look. [From: Opera]
