Apple have announced their G5 PowerMacs, based on a new 64-bit CPU from IBM at speeds of up to dual 2GHz. In fact, they are billing them as both "the world's first 64-bit personal computer" and "the world's fastest personal computer". More info here and here and some discussion here in the forums.

Yesterday was something of a day for big announcements, with Intel's P4 3.2GHz (see previous news post), Apple's G5 and even ATI are getting in on the game, announcing new northbridge chips supporting P4 CPUs. Interesting - will they enjoy the success that NVIDIA are having with their nForce series of socketA motherboard chipsets?

Some stragglers with their P4 3.2GHz reviews: SpodesAbode, VR-Zone and TomsHardware, thanks lordbeef.

F1DarkFlash spotted this new multimedia search index on Altavista.

Bizarre news story of the day has to be girl marries dog, from Ryan.

Whining about Telstra is pretty common, but now there's a wine about Telstra too, thanks Kerridwyn.

From eDust: Sony has developed a touch sensitive / bendable rubber called Gummi that will be used to control small devices like PDAs and stuff.

Dan's been playing with some fancy flashlights again.

This watercooled PC from Judicat0r is very nice, with an unusually shaped case and some amazing dremel-etching work on the window. n0v1c3's big black blower-blasted bong is pretty impressive too.
