We got hands on with the latest Android phone, the Dell Streak. It's the biggest screen we've ever seen on an Android device: 5 inches! (So much for the Droid X...) Check the video to see find out more, and if Veronica's willing to carry this thing!
This week's free software pick: LightBox Free! You can snap a dozen digital pictures in seconds... but correcting them can take forever, especially if you're intimidated by traditional photo editing tools. The 'Quick Edit' mode in this image editor is amazingly easy to use, thanks to easy to use sliders and real time corrections... Tweaking colors, removing red eye, souping up saturation and eliminating odd things in the frame are oh so easy, even if you shot 'em in RAW on your DSLR!
Len has "a pretty weird question." He's on a road trip in Europe, plans to travel near the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, and he's wondering, "should be worried taking my camera there." Digital or film camera, Roger's got advice!

What's Puppy Linux, @thewench61? It's just an awesome Linux distro that boots of a disk or thumbdrive and fits in almost no system memory. It's fast and is super useful for salvaging dead windows systems. Or extending the life of aging PCs! BTW, if you're into Linux, check out the Lifehacker Pack for Linux.
J's "friend" is going on a long trip and wants to move some of their favorite movies from DVDs to the iPad. We can help, J. Just watch the video... then go download HandBrake and AnyDVD or the free version of DVDFab HD Decrypter
The soundcard in Adam's new Macbook Pro sucks, so he's looking for decent USB sound kit to use for DJing. We went to one of our resident DJs, Mauricio, and came back with a list of gear for you to check out!
Got a nasty hijack like the Veronica was fixing last week on Debra's machine? Steve wrote in to tell us he's seen a bunch of 'em, and Microsoft Security Essentials has been zapping 'em dead where other security software packages have failed.
