Fad spotted this Intel page describing 3GIO, a serial bus standard that aims to replace PCI.. and quite a bit more.

PCStats have been overclocking the 1.4GHz AHJAR Athlon everyone's talking about.

JWR sent word of a new Sircam variant virus apparently doing the rounds, might be time to update your virus software (again).

AcidHardware have a DDR SDRAM Roundup posted.

Elvis noticed this amazing new technology, big breakthrough, it's revolutionary, we'll have superfast cpu speeds sometime in the future.. (stifles yawn) .. we seem to be getting these stories at about one a week now. Still, this one sounds like it might actually come to something.. and 70GHz is nothing to sniff at. On a similar note, scientists at Oz's own Griffith University have discovered a cool way to fit 1000x more data on hard drives using nanotechnology, thanks Jon. Similarly again, quantum computers may be closer than you think, says Ian.

While on that last site I spotted this 400-disc DVD changer.. fnarr fnarr, now you know what to get me for Christmas. Go on, it's only $1500 USD.

Lawrence wrote in, most annoyed that Motorola are exiting the softmodem business.. they do seem to be dropping people in the deep end with regards drivers, but softmodems are horrible things anyway so I'm finding it hard to get too upset about it. Still, if I owned one I guess I'd feel different.

Some residents in East Yorkshire, UK are feeling the effects of a broadband cap too - and Telstra's cap on its Oz services gets a mention in that article too, thanks Dan.

OCdCafe have a basic water cooling guide posted.. there's a heap of watercooling stuff in our own archive including my original experiment over 2 years ago when I had no idea what I was doing. :)

RatedPC have a basic network security article posted, where they examine a few firewall products.

VIAHW attended the recent VIA Technology Forum and want to tell you all about it.

Bit-tech have a new stealth fan technique they're all hot and bothered about.

The keen observer will have noticed I'm something of a vodka, err, fan.. that is, when I can get to it. Casey has a great idea for what to do with a big empty vodka bottle: put fish in it.
