Milenko noticed this article with GeForce FX (NV30) info.. a few interesting tidbits, including pricing info and: nVidia chose the FX as a tribute to 3DFX, whose former engineers played a large part in the production of the new card.

An interesting thing floating around from AMD today.. apparently they have decided to stop competing with Intel in the perpetual "smaller, faster" race for desktop CPU domination, thanks Firemoth. Hmm, going to refrain from making any comments until we get a little more info about this one. Some slashdot discussion here, thanks JaVa. BTW, popup ads with sound suck.

Sonic noticed this article about weaning ourselves off email.

Pat77 spotted some new peltier-based coolers from Thermaltake.

Digit-Life examined the SoundMAX Cadenza technology that Intel are including with the AC97 onboard sound in some of their newer chipsets.

There's a new Lord Of The Rings trailer! Also, over on AusGamers Files they have a new James Bond trailer and the RalliSport Challenge demo.

TechSpot have a voltage mod for GF4's posted.

From looktall: I just thought those dial up, xp users might like to know that the XP service pack is now available on the cover cd's of many computer mags. I've seen it on APC, PC user and PC Authority, but no doubt more will have it. Beats doing a 130mb download. :o)

Craig sent in some articles that wonder if NVIDIA can really claim full DirectX 9 support on the NV30 (aka GeForce FX), because they have removed support for Displacement Mapping. More info here and here.

ViperLair explain how to protect yourself from virii and other nasties.

TheTron noticed kids suing McDonalds for making them fat. Unbelievable.
