What is a Roomba? I've never heard of one. Nonetheless they have apparently been hacked to sing Christmas Carols. Something to keep in mind for Christmas a little later on in the year. Something else worth looking forward to is France's archive of UFO sightings which are due to be released soon. HEXUS have also posted a small preview of what you can expect from Abit in the next few months as they prepare for CES '07.

Those flight sim addicts might be interested in the space shuttle add-on that is available for Microsoft FlightSimX. I wonder if it will ever come up as a freebie at Game Giveaway of the Day. Definitely worth a visit if you are running out of games to play.

Word has gotten around that AACS may have been cracked. Some information posted here. Thanks Iain. Still with the entertainment industry, Digital Trends have published their interview with the Amazon Unbox Product Manager.

TechZone are wondering if Microsoft's Zune might be a potential iPod killer. On paper the Zune sounds like a very nice device. It looks pretty good and comes in a range of color combinations. It has a large 3-inch screen. It even offers Wi-Fi capability and song and playlist sharing.

If you are concerned that the current summer heat is having negative effects on your graphics card, you might think twice after reading this article. If you're still not convinced, head over to the Guru of 3D who have a detailed look at the installation and performance of BFG's water cooled 8800GTX card. Also check out more information here on that new processor chilling technology.

NGOHQ have spent some time exploring the Sound Blaster X-Fi issues. That particular card wasn't found in TechSpot's guide to building a sub $1000 Core 2 Duo gaming machine. But then, neither were any of the boards featured in HotHardware's 975X Express Motherboard roundup.

Nick sent in this interesting article about the persistence of data stored on different media. Have you ever taken an embarrassing or exposing picture with your digital camera, but then immediately deleted it from the camera before anyone had a chance to see it? Well, we've got some news for you... that picture may still exist and we might just have it!
