Vista users, dust off your IE or Automatic Updates, because next week the Release Candidate of Vista’s Service Pack 2 will be available for download. The update will updowngrade your OS to Windows XP. I’m kidding.

Modder Jonathan Berg put together this Wall-E PC mod that comes complete with a 7-inch touchscreen monitor inside his belly.
iSneaky: The White 13-inch MacBook has been upgraded, but for some unfathomable reason Apple’s not flaunting it. It absolutely definitely surely can’t be because of the newer, more expensive Aluminum MacBooks.
The most obvious upgrade is the GPU, which is now an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M (256MB), quite a substantial leap from the Intel GMA X3100 (144MB).
The main reason why I’m looking forward to a wireless future is because wires and cables are really messy. I can set things up fine, I know how to use color codes and to match shapes and to match the male end with the female end, but the way they sprawl all over the place is really irritating.
Heads up Trekkies: Cherry Keyboards are currently selling Klingon Keyboards. Yes, it has Klingon font as well as some English numbers. It’s perfect for, you know, if you suddenly find yourself in a chatroom with Worf.
Windows users, start your browsers. The folks from Sizzled Core are pointing the way! They posted direct download links to both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions of the beta version of Windows 7, also called Windows Vista Home Business Basic Premium Ultimate We Screwed Up Here’s The Right Version.

Looking to boost their quest for cool “I’m a PC” marketing campaign, Microsoft has launched their own clothing line, which the Redmond giant calls “Softwear”. Yup. If Apple can blind you with their fancy glass screens, why can’t Microsoft sell you shirts?
TEXTile is an interactive art piece made of nearly 23,000 computer keycaps, fabric, a projector, and custom software. Viewers can type messages that become a part of the project itself.
Here’s how it works: “In this interactive sculpture, thousands of recycled keyboard keys are embedded into a continuous textile.
Let me start by saying that I’m really looking forward to playing in the virtual sandbox of the upcoming Little Big Planet for the PS3 when it hits stores later this month. But I could never imagine building something as amazingly intricate as this.
These cool necklaces feature a recycled computer key fused to a hand-cut glass tile. The perfect gift for the geeky girl in your life!
These beauts are handmade by Capitola Girl Jewelry. She sells them on Etsy for 29 bucks.
I like to think that I know a thing or two about computers. I was beginning to think I’d seen just about everything, when I came across this fascinating oddity.
What you’re looking at is a truly unique beast, the Ergonomic Dual Screen Split Keyboard Notebook Portable Personal Computer – I’ll just call it EDSSKNCPPC for short ;) The model shown is actually known as “the Executive” (because what executive wouldn’t want one of these in place of his or her Crackberry?)
