I downloaded and installed AVG Antivirus a few days ago, when recommended by some people. Seems to work pretty well, does email scanning (in and out), scheduled system scans, updates itself automatically and is free.. can't complain about that.

A heap of people sent word of Apple's new PowerMacs. Dual 1.25GHz CPU's with 167MHz FSB, PC2700 DDR, an AGP4X slot with either GF4 or Radeon graphics.. from the sounds of the emails, we may have a lot of defectors soon. :) A lengthy thread discussing them is here in our forums.

Looktall spotted a very dusty PC.

Win y'self a pre-modded case over on OCrCafe.. international entries ok.

It's Hammer time over on HWExtreme.. they have a preview of AMD's upcoming processor range.

BOB_LORDOFEVIL sent in this article, which is an introductory guide to firewalls.

Dan's spitting out the columns faster than I can keep up. Here's a couple about learning from spam and his new Canon EOS D60 digicam.

Nexland's internet sharing devices are getting a lot of coverage today, with reviews here on 3DGameMan (video review), here on Tweakers and here on Bjorn3D.

Sven spotted some info on Anandtech about Trident's new XP4 video chipset.. here and here. There's a thread here discussing this new chipset in our Video Cards forum.
