Movie merchandising sometimes goes a little beyond imagination. In Spaceballs, Yogurt spends considerable time in one scene showing all the merchandising which is being done for the movie. Had such a scene existed in director Francis Ford Coppolla’s The Godfather, I’m sure that USB drives-had they existed back then-would have been included, regardless of how relevant to the story they are. ThinkComputers reviews the Godfather 2 GB swivel Flash drive from memory maker Super Talent, which teamed up with Paramount Pictures to created the licensed storage device. We take a look, and decide that this is an offer we can refuse.

Windows 7 is currently in beta and Microsoft is offering it free to anyone to try out until August. In this article we will show you how to take the Windows 7 ISO and put it on a USB flash drive for fast and easy installation.
I’m sure a lot of you have heard of Shuttle, I first experienced a Shuttle system when I was building computers for a few friends for them to take to school. If you are unfamiliar with Shuttle they make small form factor “cube” systems that perform just as well as a desktop system. They offer barebones systems where you can go out and purchase the additional parts yourself or you can customize the system at Shuttle’s website and they will build it for you. Today we are going to be taking a look at the Prima SP45H7 barebones system, which is based off the Intel P45 chipset.

All of this comes at a very affordable price too, let’s take a look…
