Microsoft's Research of a Lightsaber (http://www.techtvfansite.com/jazybones/cgi-bin/records/Randall_Hayter6,25,2002,15,25,21.html)

That's funny! I'd save my money, but if it's built by Micro$oft, think of what can happen if it crashes!

I can see it now...

*A man tries to despretly defend himself from a gang that attacks him. He is very skilled with his saber, and is about to cut all their guns apart in one stroke. Suddenly, his lightsaber flickers off. He looks on the side of the hilt, and there's a little screen, all blue that says, "Error in kernel32.vxd".*

Meh, I really want to see a picture of one activated. And notice how they kept on saying LucasArts instead of LucasFilm in the article. Author's been gaming a bit too much. :D

And this is better suited for the Swamp.

sweeeeeeet!!! I'm going to save up my money, or rob a bank lol somehow I'm going to have a lightsaber :) then I'm going to find an ancient lost tribe of monks who are just full on jedi like dudes, get them to train me in the ways of the force.

I wonder how you'd go about getting a lightsaber past customs and onto a plane? Cause if I have to walk to Tibet I'll be pissed.

I make custom sabers for around $100, depending on the detail.

I'm sure that Microsoft will have a readme file that goes 20 feet on an A4 papers explaining how they are not at fault if you cut your leg, arm, head, etc....

Ok. I'm interested now.

I've sent a message to Microsoft. I'll see if they reply. There are no details of it outside of that webpage though, so I't looks unlikely.

Plus I have no knowlage of a laser that is powerful enough to incinerate a bullet without prolonged contact. And what about the power source? A couple of AA batteries in the hilt? Seems a bit of a tall tail.

Of course, even though the saber won't work to it's full potential at first, I'm sure they'll have patches for it at microsoft.saberupdate.com, so that it'll stay on when you're dueling; instead of having a major security flaw that allows:
please read article Q987432189765354 for more information...

ur question is actually a bit wrong since there are no sites that can be bad if they have natalie portman pics :p :D

try www.natalieportman.com (http://www.natalieportman.com)

or this one which is really good for the best pics:
