Record companies organised raids on 12 premises in Australia recently, including universities and ISPs, thanks Simon. The MIPI also raided the companies that own Kazaa, based in Australia, thanks Reemul.

HardOCP spent some time overclocking a Prescott 2.8E, one of the new P4 CPUs, thanks Sniper. They checked out compatability on a few motherboards too.

TecNation have looked at the new CPUs for this year, including Prescott, the 3.4GHz Extreme Edition P4 and the Athlon64 3400+.

Bjorn3D compared the Athlon 64 FX-51 (our review here) with the Athlon 64 3400+, from a multitasking perspective.

FlushingSlugs have reviewed the Friendtech Xbox, which has the Celeron 733MHz CPU upgraded to a 1.48GHz Tualatin. There's been some question of whether the extra power is actually usable, so they checked it out in some detail.

TechPC wonder about DDR-II.. if it's a good or bad thing.

You can win a folding PC by beating the vicar's backside in our Team OCAU forum. Okey dokey then.

Sudhian think that Shuttle's SB62 and Mandrake Linux are a perfect match. They also look into Intel's 64-bit technology, thanks stmok.

If you're after some reading, koopz reminded me of Project Gutenberg, where there are literally thousands of novels available for free download in text form. You can even join in and help create them if you like.

Hypothermia are giving away a handful of FIC ICE-Cube mini barebones PC's.

TrustedReviews rounded up a few wireless keyboards and mice.

GregZeng noticed that digital evidence is becoming a tricky issue for courts.

If you're not squeamish, you might want to try virtual knee surgery, thanks Lojikool.

Reckon you could turn 1c into almost $1M? These guys have, thanks Browca04, who also noticed that some firewalls may not be as secure as you think.
