Late Friday morning (0 Comments) (link)

Well, this is the last official day of my holidays - I'm back to work on Monday - I'm sure you're all crying on my behalf. Anyway, here's the news.

Iroquois wrote in to let us know that the Windows XP beta program isn't going according to plan, at least for those "unofficial" beta testers who managed to dowload it with a leaked username & password.

Dan's at it again - and following yesterday's comments that he doesn't love us any more, he's let us know about it this time. :) What's he done this time you ask? How does taking photos of jelly-beans, of all things, sound? There's actually a good reason for this though, it helps to illustrate a point in his review of the Eclipse Computer Light.

Electic Tech are carrying a (very short) report claiming that Via will have a 1GHz C3 processor by the end of this year.

Mortin, from Icrontic, has put together a rather large, and apparently in-depth look at RISC, CISC and the new EPIC CPU architectures. It's well worth a read if you're at all interested in how CPUs actually works internally.

WildAndyC has put together a little report on the differences between the Thunderbird and Palomino Athlon processors.
