If you enjoy our regular "flash timewaster" games, you might want to patch your Macromedia Flash installation to fix a security problem, thanks Osiris11.

From arasta, Sony and Matsushita will jointly develop an operating system based on Linux for their digital consumer products.

Owners of ATI-based video cards will be interested in these new Catalyst 3 drivers, which support DirectX 9, thanks Rage.

Hmm, another questionable patent has been issued, this time to AOL and covering some instant messaging concepts. As a result, the patent governs a system of point-to-point communications involving users at a network of terminals. Users log on to the system with a unique identification code that remains the same regardless of their IP address, and can chat with other users logged on at the same time. The U.S. patent also covers "presence," or the ability to tell users' availability, since each member's identification code alerts the system when they log on, which, in turn, provides availability information to other users. Additionally, it protects what are commonly known as Buddy Lists, described in the patent as "a predefined list of users whose connection status the user wishes to know." Hmm, a lot of that sounds like it could be applied to a few other internet activities, including online forums and IRC.. thanks sclozza.

Bern wants to tell you how to copy your Linux installation from one HDD to another, when you upgrade.

Sharp have some cool 3D monitors on the way, thanks Phalanx.
