New Windows Phone store lets you wear your 'I heart WP' on your sleeve

Weekly Webcomic Wrapup is its own game mode

Lately, I've been subjecting myself to cruel amounts of Tetris on Game Boy. The 1989 classic certainly isn't the best version of the game. Unlike later iterations, pushing up on the d-pad doesn't auto-drop tetrominos, there's no "hold piece" function, and there's an apparent lack of flexibility in rotating pieces in tight spaces.

None of that matters though, because the Game Boy version of Tetris holds a special place in my heart, primarily due to the way I play the game. After selecting Type A music (this is crucial), I often pick a starting level between five and eight, then stack blocks erratically until they fill a little over half the screen. After taking a moment to allow a wave of stress and anxiety to wash over me, I get to work, diving block-first into the mess I just created until I'm either taken under the current or I clear every line away. This is all despite the fact that the game's second play mode accomplishes this for me; it's more satisfying when I clean up my own mess.

Modern "AAA" games don't always leave room for this kind of play style. Collecting hundreds of trivial feathers or solving every side-quest possible fills that gap in our minds that screams "clean this mess up" because it is given directly to players as achievable goals. Still, nothing ages well like your own imagination. Bringing your imagination to a favorite video game can make that experience better.

I encourage you to check out last week's imaginative webcomics, and then vote for your favorite after the break.

Sprint to charge $15 for number change starting June 10, still free via Sprint.com

Sprint to charge $15 for number change starting June 10, still free via Sprint.com

A new tiered system for Sprint's Total Equipment Protection plan? Herp. Charging customers $15 to change their Sprint phone number? Derp. Sprint's decision to start charging moolah come June 10 when changing phone numbers via a Sprint store or Care call representative likely won't sit well with some folks. Fortunately, there's still a way to get that phone number changed without lightening your wallet, according to Sprint's Support blog. By logging in to Sprint.com and changing your phone number through the "My Preferences" tab, you can get your new digits without having to fork over that pesky phone number change fee. Now you can channel your mind to more non-herpy-derpy things, like pre-ordering that shiny, new Samsung Galaxy S III, for example.

[Thanks, Mike]

Ask Engadget: best four-in-one printer, scanner, copier and fax?

Ask Engadget

We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is from Georgi, who is risking his life, his wallet and his sanity to buy the most hated of all consumer electronics: a printer. If you're looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

"I'm looking into buying a new four-in-one for my company. I'd love an internet connected printer that can scan directly to a mac from the menu, be able to email faxes it receives without printing them to save on paper and if it could support mobile devices, that'd be fantastic. I had my eyes on a couple of Epson and HP models but I'm not sure what to buy in terms of longer lifespan, cartridge price and software support. My budget's around $125. Thank you!"

Your humble narrator can tell you for sure that HP's Photosmart 5514 isn't the way to go -- we're waiting on our third replacement unit in as many weeks. Each time a new reconditioned model arrives at our door, we plug it in only to find that it's as broken as the one we bought new. Anyway, let's turn the question over to our audience, who may know of a printer that's reliable, cheap and not a figment of our collective imagination. Over to you.
