From Shintaro: Just thought I would let you know that Creative is now selling cards based on the ATI 9000pro/RV250. It's sold as the Creative 3D Blaster 5 / RX9000pro. I have posted some pics of my card in the forums here, however Akiba has much better quality pics here.
From Iroquois: Trillian v0.7.3 vulnerable to attack. Microsoft releases super patch for IE - fixes 6 new flaws. Screenshots of Deus Ex 2. 18477 3DMarks with Radeon 9700. Microsoft going to provide Macs with an MSN client.
Iroquois also notes: George W. Bush proposes a Network Operations Centre for "collecting and examining security-related e-mail and data". Hmm.
