Preparation continues for the Large Hadron Collider coming online, with another successful test of the supercomputing grid that will process the data it produces. The total amount of data transmitted during the (10-day) challenge -- some 500 terabytes -- would take about 250 years to download using a typical 512 kilobit per second household broadband connection.

Speaking of tests, the new cruise ship of the sky, the Airbus A380, concluded its first test flight successfully. The $285-million A380 is 15 metres wider, four metres higher, two metres longer and 118 tons heavier than the 747 jumbo, which helped change the airline business. In full economy configuration it can seat over 800 people!

There happens to be only a single panel manufacturer capable/willing to mass produce wide screen, high resolution flat panel displays for the PC market.

TomsHardware have a pile of new toys being shown off by various vendors. See what made us salivate as we got a sneak peak of what to expect from the networking, memory, storage and display channels during the coming weeks.

There's a new version of CPU-Z, which tells you all kinds of interesting stuff about your CPU etc. It can now tell you if you have a dual-core CPU! I can tell you that too: you don't.
