Non-Tech Post: Jones Soda Has Some New Holiday Flavors

This is totally awesome. 12 ounces of Jones Soda in a glass bottle, all in holiday themes all for $7.99. Don’t mind if I do! As according to Jones Soda themselves, this is what the flavors are like:

1) Ginger Bread: made from only the smiley faced heads of 100% organic, free range, gluten free gingerbread people. 2 Sugar Plum: fresh squeezed a la the aforementioned fruit of legend, and plucked from the only known remaining Sugar Plum tree in existence, nestled deep in the Foja Mountains of Indonesia. 3) Candy Cane: a drink so crisp and winter fresh, you’ll have no choice but to exclaim “By the beard of Santa!” in a crowded library, and finally 4) Pear Tree: a nectar so refreshing Zeus himself was known to sip it from his silver goblet, whilst wearing headband antlers.

Damn. Descriptive much?

Minecraft’s Notch Demotes Himself, Promotes Jens As Lead Designer

Minecraft’s Markus Notch Persson has made it clear on his official Tumblr that he will step down as the main designer and leader of Mojang AB. Notch will be transferring the position to Jens Bergensten, the awesome coer for Minecraft and loved among gamers everywhere. As he clearly stated: “He will have the final say in all design decisions, so he will kinda sorta become my boss,” says Notch. “I’ve promised him to not pull rank. ;)”. With that, congrats to Jens and even Notch, who has sold (with the help of the entire Mojang AB team) almost 5 million copies of Minecraft since the alpha, beta, and full releases.
