After all the rumors, Canon has finally released the new Canon EOS 5D Digital Camera. Featuring a full frame 12.8 megapixel CMOS sensor, true spot metering and a magnesium alloy exterior, this camera has everything I want ... except for the US$3300 price tag. There is some discussion about it and the other new release goodies in our forums.

Bit-Tech have a round-up of some toys which have been sent their way. A backlit EL keyboard, a dual-tuner TV card and a new modular PSU from Tagan, as well as some PSP accessories. Have a look.

DRM and High-Def video are things which people will need to think about before installing the next Windows version, Vista. Ars Technica have a run down of what it all means.

On the topic of Windows Vista, CoolTechZone have posted an overview of this wonderful new Windows version. I can't wait! (insert sarcasm here)

Over on Bigbruin you can find a guide to some of the more common Windows Keyboard Shortcuts. There are dozens of common Windows shortcuts, and some related to specific software titles. Memorizing just a few of the more basic ones may be worth the time-savings they can offer.

Tech-Hounds have a round up and comparison of five socket 939 PCI Express motherboards. The motherboards using NForce 4 chipsets are ABIT's AN8 Ultra, ASUS A8N SLI Deluxe, Gigabyte's K8NF-9, MSI K8N SLI Platinum. ABIT's AX8 3rd Eye is the odd man out with VIA K8T890.

Can we really end illegal music downloading? Do we need to? WindowsAtoZ ask these questions and ponder the answers.

A.G.System notes that the new 77.77 WHQL drivers are now available from nVidia. New drivers are a good thing, most of the time.

If you are like me and try to avoid walking or generally using your legs, then this might be for you. "Internet users will soon be able to walk the streets of New York and other cities without leaving their seat." Read it here. Thanks Ocelotx.

Adrian's Rojak Pot have posted the Desktop Graphics Card Comparison Guide. Its up to revision 9.2 now.

For those with huge power needs, how about a 1000W PSU for your system. I'm not sure what you might do with that much power but I guess you could just fill a box with extra hard drives and lots of flashy things. Thanks Sniper.

CoolTechZone note that the X800GT BIOS Update boosts performance by up to 7%. Not bad for a free upgrade.

OMAGAN sends word of some info and screenshots of UT2007. Fans of the series will be keen to have a look at the next installment.

USA Today mention that the Google Desktop search utility has been upgraded. "The latest Google offering includes several twists. Beyond providing search results, it monitors the user's behavior and presents relevant information in a resizable and moveable vertical window called the Sidebar."

For the Rev-Heads, another Dyno Day has been arranged in Sydney. Have a read of this forum thread to get all the details. Thanks Ben.

BFOlan is on again in Adelaide. Its set for the 17th of September and you can check out all the info at the BFOlan site.

The timewaster for the day is ... very silly. Damn me and my colour blindness. I can't get past the first level because I cant see the difference between the green and the yellow. Give it a go.
