You might not be able to buy happiness, but the way you spend your money can make you a happier person.

According to a new set of studies, people who spend money on others either by giving to charity or buying gifts are happier than those who don't.

The study found that people who gave away as little as $5.00 rated themselves as happier than they did before giving the money away.

Do you feel better when you spend your money on others?

Super Mario Kart, arguably one of the best video games in the past decade is making a pitstop at the iPhone.

The game is causing a stir with iPhone users and for good reason.

The mobile version makes great use of the touchscreen display, offering a virtual steering wheel to get you around your 3D opponents.

The game offers some of your favorite past time characters like Yoshi, Princess and don't forget Mario himself!
