Xbit compared twenty-two hard drives of 120GB capacity from five manufacturers.

From Rature: Wouldnt mind one of those full of mp3s. The petabox by the Internet Archive is a machine designed to safely store and process one petabyte of information (a petabyte is a million gigabytes).

ARP have coverage of Intel's Dothan launch - their new Pentium-M CPU.

IANAG have a WinXP Security Tweaking guide for the paranoid. This guide is intended for all of the people who believe tinfoil hats are fashionable. 99.5% of the people out there won't need or want these tweaks.

From Cypher: www.rockstargames.com/sanandreas and www.half-life2.com have opened recently. Both look like awesome games.

LegitReviews have some info on DDR2 memory, focusing on the likely pricing at launch time.

From John: Those smart chaps at QUT have found a vulnerability with 802.11 networks - namely 802.11b (2.4Ghz Spectrum). The problem is with the standard itself and cannot be fixed with encryption. 802.11g is not affected as significantly as it can fall back to 5.3Ghz.

Lazerin spotted these tiny RC helicopters, which I think we've seen before, but are pretty amazing.

Bit-Tech took a look at AMD's Mobile Barton CPUs. Certainly a lot of chatter about these in our AMD Hardware forum currently.

From Paul: Maori Microsoft on the way, Global piracy crackdown.

The ArsMasters have more info on Alienware's Video Array technology, thanks Marz. Would it be nice if you could plop in a GeForce 6800 Ultra and a Radeon X800 XT and get the best of both worlds? Wouldn't it be nice if you were rich enough to be able to do that?

Argent spotted this clever, if slightly nauseating, infinity in a browser page and a very cool G4 cube to SFF G5 Style project from Japan.
