Intel, who own more than 80 percent of the x86 desktop processor market, wants to stay on top. They plan to run over AMD with Performance per Watt, Intelís latest catch phrase.

At the ECS Editor's Day held in San Jose, motherboard partner ATI was on hand to showcase their upcoming CrossFire technology. PC Perspective were able to get some information on ECS' upcoming CrossFire motherboards.

The TechZone show you how to speed up your computer without upgrading. Pretty basic stuff but it may be of use to some.

Bit-Tech have the scoop on the best Case Mod I've seen in ages. I mean its really cool. I like it because it has a cow! I like cows and anyone who can get one onto/into their PC deserves a round of applause.

Daviesh points out that another P2P site has been shut down, this time its The Realworld. Fans have called it the best online VCR ever. There really isn't much hope for these sites. The legal risks are too great and it can be a very expensive business.

Several people sent in links to pages showing tweaks for Googles new Gtalk. I found this page which has some of the better ones and also some links to other sites. Thanks guys.

The US military is going all Star Wars. They are well on the way to developing an aircraft mounted laser gun. "... it has managed to shrink all the hardware for such a weapon so that it can fit under the wing of a fighter jet or piggyback on a vehicle to zap anything from ground-to-air and air-to-air missiles to rocket-propelled grenades." This Article on New Scientist gives all the good info. Thanks Iroquois and QLH454.

Iroquois also notes that Microsoft look to be set to make a Halo Movie. I wonder who gets to play the Master Chief?

Satellite technology is wonderful stuff. It lets us do all sorts of things, like tracking crocodiles. I need to get one of those attached to my kids. Thanks to von Stalhein for the link.

Several items to finish off with. Jaytech found some rather unusual subtitles on Star Wars movies, Viljar found a new popup killer, Iroquois found a cool little timewaster called poom, and something which is actually useful, a Jet Powered Beer Cooler from Paul.
