Dear Charles,

Welcome to the latest PC Pro newsletter

News headlines: Tim Berners-Lee claims services like Phorm undermine the internet; YouTube blocks music videos in UK after licensing row; and Ofcom to name and shame ISPs with broadband league table

This week's new reviews: Nvidia supercharges netbooks with Ion; Safari 4 has a lot of style - but is glamour enough to topple Firefox? And Canon's Pixma MX860 multifunction printer dazzles us with features

New issue of PC Pro on sale today! In this month's magazine: Netbook killers - we test 10 fully-featured laptops from £304; four intrepid reporters attempt to bag a PC bargain in our £250 challenge; become an astronomy star as we show you how to discover the universe from your PC; we round-up every processor on the market in our CPU megatest; design your own castle with In Depth; and give photos a lift with Serif PhotoPlus 9 on the cover disc

PC Pro podcast: On this week's show the team discuss Microsoft's decision to allow Internet Explorer to be yanked from Windows 7; the rights and wrongs of using internet data for commercial uses; and Nvidia's attempt to revolutionise the netbook. Download it now

Best of the blogs: Tom Arah sounds the death knell for Dreamweaver; Twitter convert Barry Collins lists 20 good and 20 bad things about the microblogging site; and the broadband-boosting iPlate is now a tenner - but it's still a gamble
