Test your digital IQ, then have some cheese

So you run your own blog and know how to delete the history in your computer's cache. How smart are you, really, when it comes to the digital world? Find out by logging on to MSNBC's digital IQ test and answering its 62 questions. The quiz starts out simply enough, asking users whether they purchased their computers online, then gets progressively more difficult. Wireless tips and tricks are rewarded handsomely, but admitting you never back up your computer, for example, will set you back some points and definitely put you out of the running for the site's highest score. Reaching the 110+ mark will confirm you as "a digital ace." Score 50 points or lower, however, and you'll be asked, "Are you sure you're really interested in the digital world?"

Former "Knight Rider" and "Baywatch" lifeguard David Hasselhoff has built a mega-career with his portrayals of cheeseball characters. In a music video for his cover of "Hooked on a Feeling," the 51-year-old star proves his taste has not changed with age. Dancing in a polar bear costume, flying through the stratosphere, pogo dancing with African natives and surfing on his motorcycle, the feeling he is hooked on is pretty goofy but highly entertaining. A must see.
