Every week, we post a lot of great stuff on MegaTechNews, so it's understandable that you might miss a post or two. Subscribing to the RSS feed is one of the best ways to make sure you stay caught up, but these weekly roundups can help too.

For example, you might have missed our announcement about the Traveling Techie Thursday Giveaway. That's right. We've got another contest and we're giving away the Balanzza Mini luggage scale to one lucky winner. Be sure to check out the contest post on how to enter.

Flash drives usually aren't the most exciting things in the world, but you might get a childhood kick out of the Lego MiniFig USB flash drive. I've seen thumb drives fashioned after Lego blocks, but the MiniFig is so much better!

And yes, you take his pants off to get at the connector.

Curious about Windows 8? Yeah, so are the rest of us. Microsoft is promising an entirely new user interface for Windows 8 and it's pretty darn different.

As you can see above, it's based on the idea of "bubbles" that will dynamically shift in size and location based on their relative importance to you. Do you like it? It's definitely a departure from Windows 7.

Last and certainly not least, we turn our attention to the good people of Japan. They're going through some pretty tough times right now. Between the earthquake, the tsunami, and the threat of nuclear meltdowns, they could use some help.

In addition to your usual donation to a charity of your choosing, you might want to buy an iPhone game or two to help too. Sega is donating 100% of proceeds from the sale of select Sonic games until the end of today.

For fighting game fans, Capcom is doing the same with iOS sales of Street Fighter IV. They're donating all of those proceeds until Tuesday, March 22. Get a game and help our friends in Japan.
