Geek Links of the Week

A bunch of your favourite Polaris YouTubers were in LA last weekend for the most expensive and the most botched game jam in the history of gaming. That’s because the production team took a game jam, tried making a reality TV show and had it all backfire. [Indie Statik]

Last week’s Geek Links featured Asher Vollmer talking about the clones of Threes. This week, the folks at Giant Bomb talk to the people behind those clones. [Giant Bomb]

You don’t have to be a little company or tech blogger to know the US patent system is outdated and broken. Shark Tank shark and billionaire Mark Cuban feels the same way. [Politico]

People are dual-wielding cellphones but not to get the best of iOS and Android. It’s to keep their work and personal lives separate. People would rather carry two phones around than one BlackBerry that claims to do that. Says a lot, RIM. [Wall Street Journal]

Want a look inside how your favourite YouTuber’s are bought and paid for. TotalBiscuit posted an example of an email he typically gets from PR companies looking to buy favourable coverage. [Paste Bin]
