As the week of Nobel Prize announcements wraps up, many are surprised to see that the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature went to the Peruvian novelist, journalist and politician Mario Vargas Llosa.

It was a surprise to some, since the expected winners were the candidates from South Korea, Kenya and the United States.

Llosa is an extremely political writer and is known for his political involvement, his novels do include historical works, political thrillers, comedies and murder mysteries.

The Academy honors the 74-year-old author for what it called "his cartography of structures of power and his trenchant images of the individual's resistance, revolt and defeat."

Llosa was very happy and proud to receive this award. Now we just have to wait until tomorrow to find out who won the Peace prize.

Before there was Farmville…before the Mafia Wars….there was ATARI.

In the 1970’s, Atari ruled the video game industry, but over time they were dominated by overweight plumbers and speed-fiending hedgehogs. Now, they are returning with a large scale online initiative on Facebook and other social network sites.

Atari will be updating its classics, such as Missile Command & Centipede, and they'll be pitting them against Mafiaville and Farm Wars games that are currently popular on FB.

We are SO ready to kill centipedes on Facebook, in between stalkings of people we’re no longer having sex with.

Which games will you play obsessively?
