Hmm, there's a scheme brewing to stop the copying (or ripping) of music from a CD to a HDD. Agg's prediction: like every other copy-protection scheme, this will fail if enough people are interested in finding out how to get around it.. and there are. Information wants to be free, maaan.. thanks Mikel.

Interesting thing from Klif, a USB touchscreen controller that displays your character's inventory of items in games such as Quake 3 on its touchscreen. This allows for you to quickly select from all of your available weapons by simply touching its image on the ID-75.. sounds very useful for CS.

Wokket, ever on the lookout for the truly bizarre, sent in this umpire's nightmare, everyone on the field having the same name (Patel).
