Over at Computex, ASRock are showing off a motherboard with 22 SATA ports, AMD are embracing Android and Chrome and NinjaLane checked out Roccat, Corsair and EVGA.

I'm pretty sure this is a parody, the Burger King hands-free feed-bag. Pretty sure. At least 60% sure. Altho if I had one, I could nom while newsing.. hrrrm.

iXBT have published their latest i3DSpeed guide. The i3DSpeed informs you about performance of popular graphics cards and the best price/performance deals in the market. This time we added the test results of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770/780.

Tech-Report have a Haswell PSU compatibility list. For a few weeks now, we've known that Intel's Haswell processors feature a new sleep state that isn't compatible with all power supplies. PSU vendors have been posting compatibility lists left and right. We've attempted to compile them all in a single article.

It's been a while since we've seen one of these, but ArsTechnica report on mineral-oil cooling by some GPU-based password crackers. Submerging the cards in mineral oil is "quote unquote green," Redman told Ars. "Because I don't have to worry about air flow, I can compact them together and make them so much tighter, so I can save space and use less energy and pay less money. It's cheaper and it's better and it's safer for my computer. It's illogical for me not to do it."

Bringing up something else which has been quiet for a while, Apple has apparently violated a Samsung patent. But the ban is unlikely to have an immediate impact on sales of those devices in the United States. The United States International Trade Commission said on Tuesday that it was issuing a ban for a handful of devices that work on AT&Ts network, including the third- and fourth-generation iPhone, and the first-, second- and third-generation iPads that have a cellular connection.

Meanwhile a podcasting patent has appeared, with lawsuits swiftly following. Personal Audio has so far been successful, winning $8 million from Apple last year for breaching its patent on playlists for personal media players. It also has licensing agreements with massive companies like Samsung, Motorola, Sony and LG, which arose when Personal Audio sued them for breaching its patent.

Richard spotted this digital productivity conference in Brisbane next week. The conference, exhibition and demonstrations feature cutting edge technologies being trialled across Australia via the National Broadband Network. Take part in a virtual tour of the National Museum of Australia via a robot guide, discover how organisations are making telework a productivity booster, and see how innovative telehealth services are helping older Australians stay in their homes longer. This is also a great opportunity to learn more about the benefits of high-speed broadband for business and households including the release of some new research. It's free to attend but will also be webcast.
