New mom Jessica Simpson is busy taking care of her newborn daughter, Maxwell, but that isn?t stopping the star, who is set to marry fianc� Eric Johnson later this year, from returning to work ? as a bridal gown designer!
In Touch has learned that the star has plans to start her own bridal line. ?A wedding line is something she?s always wanted to do,? a source close to Jessica, 32, tells In Touch. ?She is talented and knows what women want to wear.?
And Fashion Star stylist, Daniel Musto, can?t wait for Jessica to reveal her new designs, admitting that the style she chooses for her own upcoming nuptials will play a huge role in the new line. ?If she does something that?s going to be memorable for decades,? says Daniel, ?then certainly her wedding line is going to be successful because girls will want to mimic it!?
Plus, adds the source, Jessica can relate to ?regular? girls, not just A-list Hollywood stars. ?She has curves like every girl so women will buy those dresses up!?

We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, then here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is from Robin, who wants to help the older generation get online. If you're looking to ask one of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.
"Hi Engadget, I'm looking for a desktop for my parents, and since they rarely play any 3D games, I think a nettop might be ideal. Anything that has an HDMI output would work, so what do you recommend? Thanks very much"
Lenovo's latest Q190 arrives in January, will set you back $350 and comes with Windows 8, while the eco-friendly (but less-powerful) ASUS EeeBox EB1030 is $370, but should do a similarly decent job with your parents early adventures in tweeting. But how about you out there? Can you suggest a nettop that's even more desirable? Now that the world hasn't ended (at least when the Mayans said it would) you can share your knowledge in the comments below.

Laptops used to be simple. Almost all of them had a clamshell design, with a display that folded onto the keyboard. You picked the laptop you needed based on factors like price, weight, and performance. But it's different today: New form factors, different operating systems, and disparate user needs conspire to make choosing a laptop a complex chore.
Do core processor specs matter, or has system performance reached the point where users won't even notice a 300MHz frequency bump? Should you buy a laptop at all, or would a tablet better suit your needs? I'll answer all these questions and more as I explore the challenges of buying a laptop (or something like a laptop) in the age of Windows 8.
Define your needs and budget
Before you pull out your credit card, consider how you'll be using your new machine. Perhaps you do a lot of business traveling, and carrying something lighter than your current 6-pound behemoth would improve your life on the road tremendously. Or maybe you're looking for a shared family machine, or a laptop that you can hand off to a student to do schoolwork on. Or you might want a high-performance system that can deliver high frame rates in 3D games.
Let's look at the main buying factors for each scenario.
