BTXFormFactor has listed ten reasons to upgrade to Vista. "Last week we looked at the top ten new features in Vista, but how about the top ten reasons to actually upgrade to it? Windows Vista is the next generation OS produced by Microsoft, and an interesting fact here is that it has been five years since the release of its predecessor, Windows XP, making it the longest time span between major releases."

Tom has sent in word of a "back to school" rebate from Apple for students. Apparently if you buy an Apple computer and an iPod you get a $199 rebate.

ViaArena has taken a look at the development of the Ultra Mobile PC. "Back in February 2006, almost one year ago, I got to see a UMPC in action for the first time at E3. VIA was demonstrating a sample on their booth. Although I didn't get any personal time with it, I thought that it did look very interesting. At that stage I wasn't too sure where in the market it was going to fit and I wondered, who would really buy a handheld personal computer? Could it possibly replace a notebook? I knew it wasn't going to replace a desktop."

Matt has sent in word of a man who has been burned by his mobile phone. "A man is suffering burns to over 50 per cent of his body after a mobile phone he was carrying in a pocket caught fire. Luis Picaso, 59, is in stable condition with second- and third-degree burns to his upper body, back, right arm and right leg."

This article takes a look at Nintendo DS homebrew modding. "In this article I'm focusin on the newer version of NDS - The Lite, but similar solutions are available to the older NDS model too. And as these tools allow one to use illegal ROMs; backup images of commercial games and programs, I will not answer any forum questions about where to get them or how to run them!"

James has sent in world of Joost, a broadband TV service run by Skype which is open for beta testers.

Gavin has sent in this case mod modelled around Bender.
