MyDoom.B seems to have failed to take down Microsoft's website. If you think you have the MyDoom virus, see this thread for info on removing it.

Some news bites from MCFLY5: The next version of DirectX 9 might be called 9.0c. PCMark 2004 gets a patch released which takes it upto version 110. ATI's market share is now bigger than nVidias.

RnR spotted his scary invention of the week, being a device to suspend your laptop on a car's steering wheel. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE A VEHICLE WITH MOUNT ATTACHED TO STEERING WHEEL. DEATH or INJURY TO YOURSELF AND OTHERS WOULD OCCUR. No kidding!

Flickerdown took a look at memory bandwidth and what the benchmarks mean.

This is old news now, but an exploding sperm whale left its mark on a Taiwan street recently, thanks Nick.

Bill noticed this one-way bulletproof glass.. interesting.

GregZeng sent word that Lindows will be available over P2P networks.. so they can be used for legal stuff.

We've seen this before, but it's worth another look. A guy who really hates his Mac. Funny stuff, thanks UB3R.

Goodlet sent in this story about it being illegal to listen to music in someone else's car.. heh.

Space stuff: Apparently the Mars rovers are all better now.. or maybe not. Hubble spotted some carbon and oxygen streaming off a planet near another star. Speaking of which, Hubble might not be abandoned after all. NASA released detailed photos of rocks that reflect Martian history, thanks PodgeSSS. Odyssey has been orbiting Mars for a year now, thanks Draffa.
