This story has been doing the rounds for a week or so now, but Sciby found a good article that sums it all up. Anyway, someone got their shiny new iPhone and discovered photos of a factory worker on it. A CHINESE factory worker has become an internet celebrity after her smiling face was accidentally loaded onto an Apple iPhone and shipped to the other side of the world.

Speaking of iPhones, someone in IRC pointed out this interesting blog about adding controls to make gaming better. You guys are really going to enjoy playing games with this thing, it is like night to day in terms of how much better it is with real controls.

Thermaltake have made another gargantuan CPU cooler, discussion here. The BigTyp14 Pro features a VR-controlled 14cm fan that promises excellent cooling performance and noise output at low as 16dBA. It offers a universal clip that'll support most CPUs, and a mirror-coated copper base. There are six copper heatpipes and 69 aluminium fins on each side to help dissipate heat.

Apparently some of the Space Station's laptops have been infected with a virus. Not a cool space virus, just a boring old Earth computer virus. NASA declined to name the virus, but SpaceRef.com, which broke the story, reported that the worm was W32.Gammima.AG worm -- a worm first detected in August 2007 that installs software that steals credentials for online games. So if they're playing WoW in their spare time they could be in trouble. :) Another link here, thanks Murray. Discussion here.

Nick sent word about Mozilla Ubiquity. Today we’re announcing the launch of Ubiquity, a Mozilla Labs experiment into connecting the Web with language in an attempt to find new user interfaces that could make it possible for everyone to do common Web tasks more quickly and easily.

From Mr.Sinister: Hey guys thought you might be interested in posting this up (along with news of the Canon 50D heh). Nikon have released the D90. OCAU thread here.

German site ModMyMachine have some tutorial videos (in English). They're about mounting waterblocks on video cards, covering the HD4850 and HD4870.
