With rising gas prices it's becoming more and more important to determine how much gas it will take to complete an upcoming trip. With that information at hand you might be able to determine whether you should look for other forms of transportation to save some money, like taking the train or a bus.

As expected the Best Buy consumer electronics retail chain will start selling the iPhone 3G tomorrow. They are really boasting the reduced cost of the phone with the 8GB model starting at $199 and the 16GB starting at $299. To make this seem like even more of an unbelievable deal they are stating that the regular prices are $599 and $699 respectively.
Note: This deal is for the United States only, but details regarding other countries is below.
Have you been kicking your head around trying to come up with a domain name you can remember? Even though most of the good .com addresses are already taken you shouldn't give up hope. In fact GoDaddy just started selling .me domain addresses, but they will cost you $20 per year (2-year minimum registration required).
Anyone that has ever built a computer knows what a time consuming process it can be to find and price out all of the different parts that you need. The PC Incubator site wants to help ease the burden of finding the best parts by laying them all out in an easy-to-configure fashion.
I'm sure many of you already know that Ubuntu is not only available as a free download, but you can also order it on a CD at absolutely no cost. What's the fun in that when you can actually pay to have the CD delivered to your home?
Many of us look down at Microsoft Works, and for good reason. It's a stripped down office suite that doesn't hold a candle to Microsoft Office or any of the open source/freeware alternatives. It costs PC manufacturers next to nothing to bundle Microsoft Works with new computers, and that's often why it is included.
It looks as though Microsoft is more than just dabbling with the idea of offering a subscription-based version of Microsoft Office. According to CNet in the next few days they will launch a limited Beta program of a project codenamed Albany.
It looks as though the Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC) market is going to start expanding rather rapidly. Earlier today jkOnTheRun noticed that HP started selling the HP Mini-Note UMPC at an actually affordable price ranging from $499 to $849. What really differentiates this from the Asus Eee PC is that you can get a normal SATA hard drive up to 160GB in size as opposed to just Solid State Drives.
A proposed boycott on eBay listings went into effect on Monday, and since then the number of listings on the site dropped from around 14.5 million down to 14 million. That comes out to a 3% drop overall, which isn't quite as high as the strikers would have liked to see.
Do you remember back in 2006 when a 3D desktop called BumpTop was buzzing around the Internet? A prototype was supposed to be available "soon," and the middle of last year we were awestruck once again when BumpTop was demonstrated at the TED Conference. Here we are a year and a half later and we're still not able to download it.
I get asked all of the time what I believe is the best backup service, and the answer typically varies depending on the needs of the person. Some people need a lot of storage but not a lot of bandwidth, or visa versa. When you're considering what backup service to use I recommend checking out Jungle Disk, which in a way offers the best of all worlds.
eBay has angered a lot of sellers over the years because they are frequently jacking up the cost of their fees to list the items. They are trying to make amends with all of the sellers by lowering fees across the board, which will become effective on February 20th, 2008. Well, maybe not all the way across the board.
Microsoft is not going to stand on the sidelines when it comes to the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project. They have given 40 engineers the daunting task of getting Windows XP running on the OLPC (a.k.a. XO project), which is equipped with a 433MHz processor, 256MB or RAM, and a 1GB flash drive.
When it comes to Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) Microsoft is doing two things that almost counteract each other. First off Microsoft is easing up on the "Reduced Functionality Mode" for those users who don't pass the Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) test. As of right now if you don't pass WGA Vista will disable premium features such as Aero Glass, ReadyBoost, games, and BitLocker.
The holiday season is upon us, and with it comes a slew of great deals. I'm sure the thought will cross your mind whether you can pick up any items from the store, and resell on eBay to make a profit. If you do decide to go that route you definitely want to take into consideration all of the fees that both eBay and PayPal will collect when selling something, which is more than you may think.
