There's a funny matrix parody movie called "Computer Boy" up on AusGamers. It's fairly long and a hefty download (111MB) but worth it. There's some strong language and the occasional fart joke but it's very well done. It's made by a guy from Newtown, Sydney and (like the original) filmed in Sydney. Funny stuff.

Xbit went on a tour of Micron's memory fabrication facility. Sniper noticed they also have an article that speculates about Intel's future CPU offerings.

Another person has died because of playing computer games to the exclusion of other important things.. interesting how the media proclaims "computer games kill man" when it was, of course, his lack of food, water and sleep that killed him. If he suffered the same fate while knitting a jumper, would they be crowing that knitting killed him? Thanks Grant.

Boky noticed that Victoria's Philip Island Raceway is up for sale.. yours for $20M or so.

A few PSU things today.. ModTown reviewed the SkyHawks 400W unit, while the Vantec 420W Stealth PSU is on SilentPCReview. GeekShelter checked out the Zalman 300W while K-Hardware compared no less than 8 PSU's (German, English-ish here).

IQ2Hi spotted this plan to give computers to the poor.

My ADSL plan just got a lot sweeter, thanks Iconoclast.

BasS-InJecTeD reminds us that VIAArena are giving away a Vapochill.

Anthrax spotted some plastic magnets on Wired.
