Looking for a cheap way to prevent crashes, increase productivity, and extend the lifespan of your Mac? Adam examines the many advantages of using an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect your expensive equipment. Also this week, we announce our voluntary contribution program; look at updates to Web Confidential, Keep It Up, and MacHeadlines; re-welcome the EvangeList; and note the announcement of Handspring's Visor, a new Palm-based handheld device.
