Poor old UK electrical retailer Comet is about to feel the full legal force of Microsoft, with the US software giant claiming Comet made and distributed over 94,000 illegal copies of Windows XP and Vista.
When the Commander of the International Space Station says he just saw "the most amazing thing I have ever seen in space," you know you're in for something incredible. We've never seen a view of a comet like this.

NASA is readying a new kind of space device: a harpoon designed to rapidly fire against comets, easily taking chunks of its surface with surgical precision. It's now being tested by scientists at the Goddard Space Flight Center.
Clearly envious of the masses of coverage gained by the US Black Friday retail sales, UK electrical chain Comet is having a sale of its own. It's Five Day Frenzy is offering different discounted electric things every day. [Comet]
