Thanks to all who wished me a happy birthday for a couple of days ago. I'm feeling so happy that, what the heck, you can all have Monday off. :)

hoe4damoney pointed out this cool story of someone recovering their stolen iMac by remotely logging into it when the theives logged onto the net.

In an odd move, AMD are trying to get control of a domain owned by a reseller in the UK, thanks Scott.

HardwareZone posted their 2001 Awards for products they think don't suck.

Steve found a case-mod cartoon. Scott found another PC in a Mac project. VyW have a guide to making a fan grille from a speaker cover. Meanwhile, I think my next PC will be pink and fluffy for sure.

Freaek notes that the DOCSIS 2.0 standard has been completed, allowing for faster cable modems. Seems to mention faster uplink speeds only.

Reaper got word that Telstra is giving partial refunds for people blowing their 3GB cap in the first month of the new pricing structure, Dec 2001. Also, they've taken a leaf from Microsoft's book and are apparently manipulating surveys to make their customers seem happier.. more info here.

Narkov found an article about how the internet archive works.

Hexus have some pics of what they claim is a GeForce4 video card. We should apparently be seeing the official launch in Feb. Update Apparently Hexus had to yank it, but Chaos Cult mirrored it first. We call this "Lawyer Tag". :)

VIAArena visited the Atomic LAN held in Melbourne recently while Futurelooks visited CES 2002, a big electronics convention in Las Vegas.

GU have an article suggesting that Steve Jobs is holding back Apple.

Minion sent in more info about spyware in Audiogalaxy and other programs.. sounds pretty nasty.

Someone calling themselves "Lord Funky Biscuit" sent in more info about the Athlon/AGP/Linux "bug" we linked a few days ago.

Finally, Scott found a Pub-seeking GPS wristwatch (about time those scientists did something useful with all that grant money) and Manaz found the perfect holiday destination for nuclear disaster buffs. Good wholesome glow-in-the-dark fun.
