With the Shuttle launch later this week, there's some interesting stuff on Microsoft's Live Labs site. Today, we’re announcing an exciting collaboration with NASA using Photosynth technology, to create three-dimensional environments of preparations for the launch of space shuttle Endeavour. For the first time ever, viewers can experience unprecedented views of shuttle Endeavour on the launch pad, interior and surrounding area of the Vehicle Assembly Building, and the return of previous flight Shuttle Atlantis atop a 747.

From looktall: I think something similar to this was posted a while back, but here’s a site that has several extreme hi-res panorama photos that allow you to zoom and pan around the image. it uses an active x control, so internet explorer is required. There’s more hi-res shots here that do not require IE.

LegionHW have looked at nvidia GeForce 8000 Series CPU Scaling Performance in detail. Previously these CPU scaling articles have exclusively featured high-end graphics cards such as the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX. However, while today’s article will still include the GeForce 8800 GTX, we have also included the 8800 GTS (320MB) and 8600 GTS graphics cards to compare the gaming performance when paired with a range of AMD and Intel processors.

3DGameMan have a video article about overclocking the Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 1.8GHz. See how far Rodney pushed this processor! Kickass! ;)

YouGamers report on it being impossible to find links between video game violence and real violence. Speaking at this year's ISFE Experts Conference, held in Brussels last month, Goldstein was moved to pass a comment on the never-ending media attention on the apparent links between video games and actual violent behaviour from those who play them.

I found this site which ranks mobile graphics chipsets in order of performance. Good for making sense of all those product names and numbers.

Beyond3D went to an AMD Tech Day recently. The focus is definitely D3D10 on Vista and multi-threaded game programming on Windows, with a little about the upcoming new dual- and quad-core AMD processor architecture at the end. Let's forge on.

Sniper spotted some wireless USB info. The cables will be replaced by Wireless USB (WUSB), which will send data through the air at up to 480Mbps: the same speed as USB 2.0 cables. WUSB is coming to the market several years later than originally expected.

Hmm, I forgot to go to bed again.
