Saturday Evening (25 Comments) (link)

Neevo sent in news that Motocycle Helmets are getting the HUD treatment, the technology used by fighter jets so you don't have to take your eyes off the road to see the speed you are doing.

Another event has been organised, this time by cooperx who manages The Icebar on Caxton Street for our Brisbane members. He is offering to throw in a free drink for every OCAUer who turns up, along with that he is running some killer drink deals and possibly some free food!

Tech Powerup has just posted some information on ATI's upcoming Overdrive 4.

Microsoft tutors us on what we call leet speak. Mistakes are often uncorrected. Common typing misspellings (or typos) such as "teh" instead of "the" are left uncorrected and may be adopted to replace the correct spelling. Bloody hilarious!

fester2001 linked us this article, which states Intel researchers have developed a method of generating a continuous laser with a silicon device, one of the first steps toward introducing optical interconnects in future processors, servers, and PCs.

Kamehameha sent in another Google-like site, this one called Gizoogle. Check out the one for OCAU: Australia's busiest PC Hardware communizzles serv'n local n internizzle enthusiasts since 1999 ridin' in mah double R. Brilliant! :D

The Tech Zone covers an important topic to do with Wi-Fi Hotspots; Security.
