Lots of good deals at the Fry's stores (walk-in) this weekend.
At least, if you have any intentions of upgrading to Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system this. Leaked memos from Best Buy suggest that PCs purchased after June 26th will get the free upgrade to Windows 7, when available in October. That's a $110 value.
Better yet, wait a month until the best-prices-of-the-year back to school season starts in July, with a new set of products.

The Most Efficient Free Defragmenter"
I am using this to drfrag Windows 7, I also used it for Vista. The best part is it's FREE.
Designed for Windows 7, Vista™, XP, 2000, and Windows Server Editions (32bit and 64bit)

Microsoft Corporation on Tuesday announced the date the latest version of the Windows operating system, Windows 7, will be in general commercial availability: Oct. 22. Guess that means the Release Candidate process is going well. My reading of the 'Net tea leaves is that it's going just fine. So mark your calendars: October 22nd is the birth of Windows 7 and the assured demise of Vista.
Meanwhile at Computex in Taiwan, Acer announced it will ship a netbook this year with Google's Android operating system. Head up, Linux and Windows! Of course, I will predict here that by 2012 Google will be defending Android for not supporting alternative search engines in the European Union anti-trust bureaucracy's quest for competitive purity.

2) Another green car link, well maybe not so green but defiantly different Seems the Termite has landed. This is about a wood burning car the article I found is here http://www.sunjournal.com/ this caught my curiosity because I remember quite a while ago the news following a wood burning car cross country, but they were pulling a trailer and using a chemical reaction to create the wood gas. I have been trying to find something on that for quite a while now. If you have any info please contact me. This is the termite main page about their journey http://blog.safehandling.com/
3) This is for the news junkies, of which I am one I just found this, and I kind of like the format. Called a News Map you just move your cursor around for the headline, click on it and it will take you to the story, want to change the map just click on the subject links at the bottom. This is really just a different format for looking at the news but I have to admit I like it. http://newsmap.jp/
4) This is one sent to me from Troll, I am afraid I do not have much to say about it now, as I keep checking it out after dark, and looking at a black box. Due to the timing of the show I am sure I will be looking at it during my segment. I will offer more on it then. It is a Bald Eagle web cam, comments coming tomorrow. http://www.nwf.org
5) Okay this is about as geeky as I get, I am not sure I am ready for this, I may request the planet stop and let me off. It is common knowledge how I feel about cell phones, and GPS they are in the same folder labeled save for next reincarnation not this time around. Now I read about cell phone enhanced reality, I am sorry when life turns into a museum tour complete with head phones telling me what I am looking at, well it is just too much. But, because this is just me doing what I do for your enjoyment, if you have not seen this check it out. Point your phone at an object, and get a history and total run down on it, http://www.newscientist.com
