Morning everyone, I hope everyone had a nice christmas yesterday. Not so much news happening tonight so we'll do a few news articles and then throw in some reviews for good measure!

Here's a free game from Rockstar Games called Wild Metal. Should keep people amused during those times when boredom sets in over the holidays. Thanks Yorky.

Want someone to mow the lawns, walk the dog and do the laundry? Introducing The NS-5. Maybe I should have asked for one of these for Christmas. Thanks Blinky!

Here is a short article that gives a good insight into industry take up of flat-panel displays over CRT. Thanks FuXToR.

News.com.au have a rather amusing story on a thief in Darwin breaking into a business and leaving an interesting calling card. Thanks for that, browca04.

Graham spotted this news article over at The Inquirer announcing that Intel has confirmed the existance of a X86-64 based Yamhill chip.

Overclockers New Zealand have a 4-way graphics card shootout which include the Gigacube R9800Pro 256MB, PowerColor R9800XT 256MB, Yuan R9800Pro and the Gigacube R9800XT 256MB.
