John McAfee is apparently glad that Intel are dropping his name from their products. Last June, McAfee appeared in a profanity-laced video attacking the quality of the software produced by the company, which he founded in the late 1980s. He said he frequently gets emails from customers who complain that it degrades the performance of their computers and is difficult to remove.

mpot spotted this interesting project where someone built their own open-source laptop. Building your own laptop makes about as much sense as retrofitting a Honda Civic with a 1000hp motor, but the lack of practicality never stopped the latter activity, nor ours.

There's an interesting article posted on The Verge about PlayStation Now and how it could be the future of gaming. PlayStation Now lets you stream PlayStation 3 games over the internet to almost any device imaginable, from Sony TVs and the PS Vita to smartphones and tablets.

Apparently a Melbourne schoolboy 'hacked' Public Transport Victoria's site recently. "I was actually looking for the cost of Boxing Day tickets and Christmas Day tickets and found an error on the website," Rogers told the ABC.

Nvidia has now responded to AMD's "free sync" demo at CES 2014 saying desktop displays are different, and they may not support the variable refresh rate tech behind AMD's solution—at least not yet.

Here comes modular PC's, and no real surprise who brought their concept to CES 2014; Razer presents Project Christine. According to Razer, the PC's inherent modularity has "remained underexploited by the vast majority of general consumers for more than 30 years."

Radeon's 290 series cards are beginning to get their much needed additional cooling with PowerColour giving them a triple slot, five heat pipe, two aluminum fin array, and three 80-mm fan design. I'm sure it can't be as loud as a single FOP38. PowerColor claims this cooler design lowers temperatures by 24% and reduces noise levels by 17% compared to the stock AMD solution.

For more CES 2014 coverage, head over to PC Perspective, Tech Report, Tech Radar, and Engadget.
