  • AMD Phenom II X3 720 / X4 810 / X4 920 Tested - Phenom II processors demonstrate more attractive performance than their direct competitors from the Core 2 series. For example, the 810 processor looks much better than the Q8200 and the Q6600, which has a much larger cache. Phenom II X3 has a significant advantage -- the third core. So it's a more promising product, demonstrating no worse, or even better performance in most tests. In fact, this processor makes dual-core CPUs justified only in the budget category, which lacks triple-core models, or in case of some specific tasks.
  • Phenom II AM3 Facing DDR3-1333 Stability Issues - If you're eying an AMD Phenom II AM3 platform, you'll want to pay attention to this budding issue. TechPowerUp reports that AMD has acknowledged a limitation with the DDR3 memory sub-system.
  • AMD to Launch Radeon HD4890 in April 2009 - The RV790XT A11 sample has a clockspeed of 850Mhz and a operating voltage of 1.3V. It will likely be paired with 975Mhz GDDR5 memory. By comparision, the current Radeon HD4870 (RV770) model runs at 750MHz core clock and 900MHz memory clock
  • Nvidia Plans GeForce GTS 240 & 9800 GT 'Green' - Nvidia is going to silently launch a new 9800 GT Green edition in Mid March where the VGPU will be lowered and that results in core clocks reduction from 600 to 550MHz and shader clock from 1500 to 1375MHz
  • ASUS Eee PC 1000HE 10-Inch Netbook $25 off - Amazon has fairly good deal for ASUS Eee PC 1000HE 10-Inch Netbook (1.66 GHz Intel Atom N280 Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive, 10 GB E-Storage, Bluetooth, XP Home, 6 Cell Battery) Black.
  • Lenova 12" Notebook Soon - Lenovo reportedly plans to launch an Atom N280-based IdeaPad S20 netbook featuring a 12-inch panel. The specification would break Intel's restrictions for netbook products that state devices cannot offer panel sizes larger than the 10-inch category, according to sources at notebook makers. As a consequence for breaking the restrictions, Lenovo will lose out on preferential pricing for the N280 processor, and would end up having to buy at Intel's officially announced price, which is around US$10 higher than typical quotes to vendors of Lenovo's size, the sources noted.
  • Rivatuner 2.23 for Forceware 182.xx and Catalyst 9.1 - Rivatuner has been updated towards version 2.23 In this release we have included a huge number of new stuff to keep you busy, obviously GeForce 9x00 / GTX 200 series support has been added as well as ForceWare GeForce drivers up-to 181.xx and AMD ATI Catalyst 8.12 support.
  • Microsoft Opening Retail Stores - Microsoft is planning to do what Apple did successfully and what Dell and Gateway failed to do: launch a retail store chain
  • Facebook: We own your content forever, and ever - Facebook's terms of service (TOS) used to say that when you closed an account on their network, any rights they claimed to the original content you uploaded would expire. Not anymore.
  • Woman, not breast-feeding, thrown off Facebook - I  am not sure why people act surprised when their Facebook account is closed after they post semi-nude pictures on the site. The way this girl is talking (claiming she is losing business), I smell a lawsuit coming
  • Pirate Bay file-sharing defended - The founders of a website which carries links to copies of music, films and TV programmes have gone on trial in Sweden on charges of copyright theft. "It is legal to offer a service that can be used in both a legal and illegal way, according to Swedish law," Mr Samuelsson said at the opening of the trial, which is expected to last three weeks. He said the site "can be compared to making cars that can be driven faster than the speed limit".
  • Conficker worm infects more than a million PCs - The $250000 bounty Microsoft has put up for information on of the controllers of the globe-spanning Conficker worm seems about right
  • HTC Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2 Announced - The second generation HTC Touch Diamond (which we know as the Diamond2) gets a screen upgrade, from 2.8in to 3.2in, with an accompanying resolution boost from VGA (480x640) to WVGA (480x800). The lauded TouchFlo 3D alternative interface now reaches a bit deeper into Windows Mobile 6.1, making a few more functions touch-friendly, but stopping short of a total overhaul.
  • Samsung unveils solar-powered phone - For starters, the back side of the Blue Earth has been outfitted with a large solar panel. They say that this panel will be able to generate enough electricity to make a phone call any time that you want.
  • I am a PC and 7 years old (video) - Last week we had Kylie, a 4 year old girl using Windows Live Photo Gallery to send pictures to her family, in the new Microsoft Rookies ad campaign. Now we have Alexa, a 7 year old who yet again uses Windows Live Photo Gallery. Alexa takes different pictures of her room and puts it all in one picture to make a panaromic picture using Windows Live Photo Gallery The ad still sticks to its underlying message which is, how easy are Windows products to use. Microsoft quotes, "It's easy at any age with Windows Live Photo Gallery. If Alexa can do it, how about you?"
  • Hubble in trouble after satellite crash -  A pair of satellites collided last Wednesday and the resulting debris poses a greater than normal risk to damage the Hubble Space Telescope
  • Lesbian Vampire Killers - Full Trailer - Lesbian Vampire Killers is directed by British filmmaker Phil Claydon, of the 2002 horror flick Alone. The script was co-written by Paul Hupfield and Stewart Williams, both of the British TV series "Balls of Steel" previously. For those from England, the film stars James Cordon and Mathew Horne, the duo from the TV series "Gavin & Stacey". Lesbian Vampire Killers is scheduled to hit theaters in the UK in March of 2009, but doesn't have a US distributor yet. With some luck, we can expect to see this sometime in 2009
  • Fight Scene from the Street Fighter Movie - Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li is directed by ex-cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak, who directed Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds, Cradle 2 the Grave, and Doom previously. The script was penned by up-and-coming screenwriter Justin Marks, who also penned screenplays for Masters of the Universe and Voltron. Hong Kong fight choreographer Dion Lam, who previously worked on The Matrix Trilogy, Spider-Man 2, and all of Bartkowiak's previous films, is handling the fight sequences. Fox is debuting Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li in theaters everywhere on February 27th.

  • New X-Men Origins: Wolverine TV Spots Online - The new TV Spot for X-Men Origins: Wolverine is online. I like how this clip shows where this movie fits. It will be telling an origin story, but also just an early story of Wolverine with flashbacks to his youth. Fox will debut X-Men Origins: Wolverine in theaters everywhere on May 1st.
  • Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Trailer Online - Check it out! If you pause it at 1:39, i'm pretty sure we can see the fallen :P
  • The Simpsons new title sequence, first change in 19 years! - For the first time in the show's history, The Simpsons will be in HD for all to see Sunday night, as well as the first full, permanent revamp of the show's opening titles since its premiere in 1989.

  • A woman missed her flight at the boarding gate HKIA (video) - A woman going insane after missing her flight. WTF? :-)
  • Scarlett Johansson's Cleavage Is Convincing - Here are some new shots of Scarlett Johansson's Dolce & Gabanna campaign. Unlike the last set that came out last month, these ones show much more cleavage which makes the whole Marilyn Monroe recreation that much more authentic. Nice.
  • Bar Refaeli in a Bikini - Can we ever get enough of bikini and lingerie model Bar Refaeli? Well, today's photos are quite artistic, not like the usually gratuitous breasts and ass photos that we have all come to enjoy. Either way, I don't have a problem with it and neither should you.

  • 3GB vs. 6GB Memory Performance Analysis on X58 - If you have the money or just want the best you're going to end up with 6GB. If you multi-task a lot and use your computer for work that runs memory intensive programs, then you will no doubt end up with 6GB or even 12GB. If you're on a budget or would rather spend the money you save by buying a 3GB kit over a 6GB one in order to upgrade your graphics card, you will end up with 3GB of memory and still be extremely happy.
  • NVIDIA notebook drivers 179.40 - The new drivers are numbered 179.48, and they're available for Windows Vista and Windows XP in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors.

  • Upgrading to Windows 7: what XP and Vista users need to know - ArsTechnica published a guide to upgrading to Windows 7.
  • Voiced Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation Points to iPhone (video) - With the basic GPS navigation on the iPhone, however, you still have to look at the screen to know where you are going. This new app overcomes that by providing voiced directions, just like you would get on a standalone GPS navigation device. It's not available through the official App Store, so you will need to go through the routine of jailbreaking to access this functionality.
  • The GeoBulb LED light bulb - The bulb is said to last 30,000 hours, using a fraction of the power of incandescent bulbs, generating very little heat and isn't susceptible to vibrations or repeated on/off switching
  • 5 Things You Didn't Know: AK-47 - With a new book on the market entitled AK-47: The Story of the People's Gun, Michael Hodges is an expert on this particular weapon, and we got Hodges to let us in on a few little-known facts about the AK-47 while researching his work

  • Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds - Full Trailer - This is not a remake of the Italian film of the similar name (Inglorious Bastards) nor is it a remake of the Dirty Dozen as some have assumed. This simple plot comes from the twisted mind of Tarantino himself. This looks like it will measure up to every word of Brad Pitt's speech. It looks to have a LOT of brutal violence in it (which is always forgivable when doing it to Nazis apparently). 
  • Kate Hudson - HQ Photoshoot - Kate Garry Hudson (born April 19, 1979) is an American film actress. She came to prominence in 2001 after receiving an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe for her role in the drama Almost Famous, and has since established herself as a Hollywood lead actress, starring in several films, including How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, The Skeleton Key, You, Me and Dupree, Fool's Gold, and Bride Wars.

(hx) 07:45 PM EST - Feb,10 2009 - Post a comment
  • AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE & X4 810 Review Round-Up - The X4 810 is a nice part which will make quite a few folks happy. It does not run really hot, it does not pull all that much power, and it certainly performs well considering the price it is at. The real star of this show is the X3 720 BE. Overclocking this is a breeze, and its performance even at stock speeds is nothing to sneeze at. Once up at 3.5 GHz and beyond, the real fun starts.
  • Intel Reveals Westmere 32nm Roadmap -  Intel has unveiled most of what we wanted to know about their 32nm "Westmere" processors, and it looks like we have a fair amount to look forward to.

  • Intel delays 'Tukwila' server chip - again - Tukwila is a quad-core update to the Itanium processor, which has had a less-than-promising run since the original version was announced back in 2001. The chip's architecture--based on explicit instruction-level parallelism--is a radical departure from the x86 design used in PCs today. It was believed at one time that Itanium would replace x86 chips in many Intel-based computers.

So you must play without AF in these games.

  • GeForce 9 rebranding may take effect next month - Nvidia will re-introduce the GeForce 9800 GTX+ as the GeForce GTS 250 and the GeForce 9800 GT as the GeForce GTS 240.  Needless to say it merely serves to try and dupe customers into buying old parts by telling them they are new products. I know we should all check specs and what not before buying, but if Ford came out with a car and called it the 'AwesomeCar' and it was just a Focus but Ford claimed it was a new product, they'd be crucified.
  • nVidia Chips Comparison Table - You have to be very carefull with low-end video cards using nVidia chips, because they can use different clock rates and different memory interface from the table. For example, you can find GeForce FX 5200, GeForce FX 5500 and GeForce 6600 with 64-bit or 128-bit interface. We've seen GeForce FX 5200, GeForce FX 5500 and GeForce 6200 with 32-bit interface on the market! To make things cleaner, Hardware Secrets posted nVidia Chips Comparison Table
  • Nvidia goes stereoscopic with GeForce 3D Vision - The package comes with two main components: a pair of glasses and a little, black, pyramid-shaped doohickey that happens to be an IR transmitter. Both of these devices plug into the computer via a USB cable. The glasses plug in only for the purpose of charging. Otherwise, they're wireless and won't keep you tethered to your PC, thank goodness. The IR transmitter must remain connected to the PC, of course, because it's what sends signals to the glasses.
  • Western Digital MyBook Studio Edition II 2TB tested - Inside the WD MyBook Studio Edition II are two pairs of WD Green Power 1TB hard drives, which are Western Digital's new eco-friendly high-capacity hard drives. Both drives are configured as RAID 0 enabled, which puts speed and capacity over data protection. It comes formatted for HFS+, which is the default Mac hard drive format. If you're mainly a PC user, you can reformat the drives to either FAT32 or NTFS file formats using the included WD Drive Manager utility
  • Gaming On A 269inch Screen - According to the folks at IAC, who house this monstrosity in their headquarters' lobby, it's the largest, highest-definition screen in the world. That is to say there are larger screens with lower resolution and smaller screens with higher resolution, but this bad boy has the highest combo of both specs. Yes, it is large.
  • Windows Vista SP1 vs Vista SP2 Release Candidate Performance -  As for hard disk drive performance on the Intel ICH9R controller chip, performance was rather poor under SP2. Clearly something needs to be done. It affected read performance greatly, especially in the minimum read speed where SP2 dropped right down to around 48MB/s whereas SP1 stayed strong at about 136MB/s.

Widenius wrote he plans to work on a small company called Monty Program Ab, which develops open-source software applications. He also plans to open a restaurant which he said will use databases to achieve a better customer experience.
  • MIT Students Turn Internet Into a Sixth Human Sense (video) - Students at the MIT Media Lab have developed a wearable computing system that turns any surface into an interactive display screen.

Pattie Maes of the lab's Fluid Interfaces group said the research is aimed at creating a new digital "sixth sense" for humans

  • SuperSpeed USB 3.0 FAQ - Dubbed 'SuperSpeed USB', USB 3.0 promises a major leap forward in transfer speeds and capability, while maintaining backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 devices.

  • Microsoft reveals Windows 7 editions - Microsoft doesn't plan to put many marketing dollars behind Windows 7 Ultimate, and the edition will be available "via occasional promotions and offers from both PC makers and retailers."

(hx) 01:04 PM EST - Feb,02 2009 - Post a comment / read (3)
  • ASUS 9800GTX+ Dark Knight Tested - Having a look at the benchmarks we can see that this ASUS’ version of the 9800GTX+ cleanly beats another special edition 9800GTX+ which had already beat the original 9800GTX+. Temperatures were a stable 41C at idle, 63C during load with stock clocks and ambient room temperature at 25C. With the overclocks applied we got 42C at idle and 64C at load which as you can see is almost no different from the original temperature readings.
  • The PC of 2010 - One goal of Windows 7 is touchscreen-friendliness (yes, comparisons to the iPhone's swipey gestures and virtual buttons have been made). MS aren't always reliable trendsetters - tablet PCs, anyone? - but this one really is looking likely, more so for laptops than for desktops. It won't hit big until 2010, but it looks certain to be part of the long-term future of PCs.
  • Will Laptops Ever Replace Desktops? - Yes, laptops cost about the same initially as equivalent desktops, but they're less reliable and more difficult and expensive to repair. I've seen a lot of relatively new laptops with dead motherboards, bad displays, or strange behavior due to overheating, though, to be fair, laptops take a lot more abuse from users than desktops do (coffee spills, dropped on the floor, etc.). Of course, I use both. I use my laptop almost daily around the house and on business trips (along with my HTC HD), but I could not work without my desktop PC! What about you?
  • Windows 7 Beta Taking Unusual Development Route - Microsoft is taking an unusual (for them) path in bringing Windows 7 to the masses. They're moving straight from the single beta release that was made available in January to a release candidate
  • Hacker war drives San Francisco cloning RFID passports (video) - Some dude, using minimal equipment, drove around San Francisco sniffing out RFID tags from drivers licenses and passports. In just 20 minutes, he found and cloned the passports of two very unaware US citizens. Watch the video, it is a bit scary!
  • Facebook Plans To Sell Your Data? - Apparently companies will be able to target Facebook's members through a polling system called Engagement Ads. The article even has quotes from Facebook's global marketing director (Zuckerberg's sister) claiming that companies are thrilled about the new system. I'll bet they are.

  • Are AMD and ATI About to Become Extinct? - Motherboards.org asks if AMD is about to become extinct. They had better hope not.
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 RC1 Tested - IE8 does a better job at protecting your privacy and confidential information when you're online - at least compared to IE7 - and it helps to protect and stop malicious software from reaching your PC by detecting imposter (phishing) Web sites. IE8 also supports Data Execution Prevention, a technology that aims to reduce the exploitability of buffer overflows, which are commonly exploited for injecting malicious code. If programmers write their code with DEP in mind, many potential vulnerabilities could be eliminated.
  • Open-source browsers' speeds blow past IE, Opera - The test compared Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 Release Candidate 1, Opera 10.00 Alpha, Firefox 3.1b1, Chrome 2.0.158.0, and the WebKit r40220 developer project included in Chrome and Apple's Safari.

  • The oldest trick in the book, literally, defeats UAC in Windows 7 - Though the fellows sounding the warning today are the best in the business, it didn't take a lot of know-how to develop a proof-of-concept that the new User Access Control panel can be disabled by VBScript. Indeed, the SendKeys method is capable of sending up and down keypresses to this panel, and can even send the keypresses necessary to make the panel appear. Rivera warns that real malware could conceivably be used to not only force UAC to turn off, but then to reboot Windows and run a malicious package with full privileges. (His PoC, however, does not do that.)
  • Google Makes Gmail Available Offline - All you Gmail users will be happy to know that Google has made Gmail available offline. Here's how the new feature will work: Once you turn on this feature, Gmail uses Gears to download a local cache of your mail. As long as you're connected to the network, that cache is synchronized with Gmail's servers. When you lose your connection, Gmail automatically switches to offline mode, and uses the data stored on your computer's hard drive instead of the information sent across the network.

The Storm fixes this concern by differentiating between a touch and a click. And what's included in the box? Aside from the phone itself, you get the standard documentation, installation CD, carrying pouch, wall charger with adapters, headset, USB cable, and a cleaning cloth

All you Radeon owners should head on over to the AMD/ATi website and grab the new Catalyst 9.1 drivers.The company has tackled a copious number of bugs related to the Catalyst Control Center, video playback, general stability, and other miscellaneous software (but very few games). You'll find the full release notes linked right in the driver download pages. OpenGL 3.0 capabilities shouldn't affect gamers just yet, since pretty much all PC games out there use either Direct3D or OpenGL 2.x. Windows Vista x86, Windows Vista x64, Windows XP, and Windows XP Pro x64 flavors are available so grab them if you need them!

  • A look at four X25-E Extreme SSDs in RAID -  Sure, it only packs 32GB of storage, and yes, you'll pay a princely sum for the privilege.

  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 285 Tested - There are no surprises with the GTX 285 - It delivers the 10% increase in performance commensurate with its higher clockspeeds in most games. However, we find it rather disappointing that Nvidia used a smaller heatsink, causing temperatures to remain as high as they were on the GTX 280. Another area in which the GTX 285 falls short is power consumption, which remains nearly as high as before.

  • New Quadro graphics card has low profile, two GPUs - This small card can accommodate up to four 30" 2560x1600 displays thanks to a proprietary-looking connector at the back, which can apparently spider out into four dual-link DVI ports
  • How Much Power Does Your Graphics Card Need? -The power consumption of today's graphics cards has increased a lot. The top models demand between 110 and 270 watts from the power supply; in fact, a powerful graphics card under full load requires as much power as the rest of the components of a PC system combined. If you’re planning to upgrade to a dual-chip card or to extend your system with a second video card using SLI or CrossFire, then the GPU plays the biggest role in determining how many watts your next power supply must be capable of providing.

  • Intel H57, P57 and Q57 chipsets for Lynnfield/Havendale - One of the major highlights of the three high-end chipsets will be the introduction of a new technology known as Braidwood. In short terms, it is basically a revision of Intel's Turbo Memory which was first seen on the Santa Rosa mobile Centrino platform in May 2007 and later in its second revision on the Monteniva platform in July 2008. The technology attempts to decrease hard drive usage by moving frequently accessed data over to flash memory which ultimately allows for faster boot times and more power efficiency. This time, however, the memory chips will also feature a dedicated NVRAM controller to the system and storage buffers to allow for read and write speeds available only on solid state disks.
  • Samsung SyncMaster T240 24inch LCD Monitor - Gaming on this monitor is fine as long as you have the hardware to push out a 1920x1200 gaming experience at a decent framerate. But if you have the videocard and system to do so, this monitor won't let you down. Gaming is great with no ghosting witnessed at all. Just make sure you use the native 1920x1200 resolution. If you don't want or can't utilize the higher resolutions, I would drop down to a T220 so you can use the 1680x1050 resolution instead
  • Windows 7 BETA vs Windows Vista SP1 SSD Performance Compared - Obviously Microsoft have spent some time improving SSD performance under Windows 7.
  • Three million hit by Windows worm - Although Microsoft released a patch, it has gone on to infect 3.5m machines. Experts warn this figure could be far higher and say users should have up-to-date anti-virus software and install Microsoft's MS08-067 patch.

  • 55nm GT200: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 1GB Tested - Even at real-world resolutions like 1600x1200 and 2048x1536 the GTX 285 was able to run noticeably faster than the GTX 280 OC. Of course the AMD Radeon HD 4870 X2 was the best card in our graphs but in reality it is priced higher than the GTX 285 and utilizes a pair of GPUs to get the job done (much like NVIDIA's own GTX 295 did to beat out the 4870 X2 for the performance crown).
  • Nvidia Even Greener with 9600GT Green Edition - This card is known as GeForce 9600 GT Green Edition based on the new 55nm G94-350-B1 core. The reason why Nvidia called it Green Edition is because its core voltage is 0.1V lower than the current 55nm G94 cores thus reducing power consumption further
  • Seagate offers fix, free data recovery for bricked Barracudas - The free data recovery for already-bricked hard drives seems like a nice touch, especially considering the cost of third-party services

  • ATI Cuts Prices on 4870X2, 4850X2 Cards - ATI has cut the prices on the X2 flavors of the 4850 and 4870 cards in response to Nvidia's GTX 295 release.
  • Palit GeForce 9800 GTX+ Video Card NE/98TX+XT352 Tested - At the time of writing the NE/98TX+XT352 is available at NewEgg for $189.99 ($159.99 after $30 mail in rebate). Value is on par price-wise with other 9800 GTX+ cards and within about $10-$15 of it's true competition the HD4850. If you are looking for a mid-level performer that will play most games great at or below 1920 x 1200 resolution, then by all means give this card a try.
  • SuperSpeed USB 3.0 in Action (video) - Since the host end of USB 3.0's plug is fully compatible with USB 2.0 (and 1.0, as it turns out), they expect folks to start buying future-proof USB 3.0 hard drives and wait for computer manufacturers to build it in -- or just grab a PCIe card if they're really enthusiastic. With around 10 times the headroom -- about 500MB a second -- of USB 2.0, the real bottleneck now is hard drive speeds. In the test we saw, the drive averaged around 78MB per second, and we can easily see SSD and RAID scenarios exploring this transfer speed. Their prototype setup to accomplish this was sprawling and a little bit ghetto, but by the time this is shipping in devices the chip will be shrunk down to about the size of a stamp.

There are brand new GeForce 181.20 drivers out today for Windows Vista x86, Windows Vista x64, Windows XP x86, and Windows XP x64. The drivers add support for the GeForce GTX 285-a new top-of-the-line single-GPU card based on the same 55nm GT200 "B" chip as the GTX 295. Aside from that, Nvidia has made some bug fixes pertaining to Age of Empires, Company of Heroes, Grand Theft Auto IV, Prince of Persia 4, Serious Sam 2, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., and World of Warcraft: Wrath of Lich King, alongside other, non-game apps. Oh, and the new drivers apparently tweak power management for GeForce GTX 260 and 280 cards, too. Grab them if you need them!

(hx) 05:09 AM EST - Jan,06 2009 - Post a comment / read (1)
  • Gigabyte EX58-UD4P Intel X58 Mobo Tested - The Gigabyte EX58-UD4P is meant to offer value for Core i7 users, retaining some of the X58 chipset's most interesting features like 3-way SLI and CrossfireX support, which should come extra handy for gamers willing to burn cash for the ultimate performance
  • GT212 has 384 SPs, more specs revealed - To start matters off, GT212 is the successor to 55nm GT200b which is currently rolling into production. In comparison, the upcoming architecture is essentially following two similar footsteps of 65nm G92 last March - a die shrink to a smaller fabrication process and a decrease in memory interface width.
  • Seagate ships two-platter 1TB Barracuda 7200.12 - So, will these include the awesome lock-up inducing firmware? if so, I'll take two! Just kidding...of course, I'll wait for WDC's 2TB offering.
  • Viewsonic VX2260WM 22-inch Full HD Monitor Tested - So, Viewsonic's first foray into the 1080p 22-inch segment is pretty solid. It's certainly one of the better TN panels we have seen, it just pips Iiyama's slightly cheaper model for image quality and physical desirability and adds a few useful features, including HDMI, to boot. More importantly, that 1080p native resolution looks fantastic on a 22-inch panel, delivering eye-popping detail along with generous desktop real estate.
  • Nano-powered 'FreeStyle' netbook Impressions - The upcoming FreeStyle 1300n will feature an 11.6" 1366x768 display, a 1.3GHz Via Nano CPU, up to 4GB of RAM, support for 2.5" storage devices, 802.11g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and optional cell phone or WiMAX connectivity

Existing flip-flops require power to maintain their state and a clock circuit to control them. NEC's MFF uses magnetism to eliminate the need for juice.(thanks Ron Mertens)
  • Steve Jobs: I'm not dying, relax - Apple's prolific CEO has written a public letter to say he isn't on his death bed after all-and we should all "relax and enjoy the show tomorrow."
