Another sad passing. Don Adams, the star of the 60's TV show 'Get Smart' died yesterday at the age of 82. It was one of my favourite shows as a kid. "Oh, Max!"

Phishing scams are getting more Hi-Tech, and also less Hi-Tech. Now they are just ringing you and asking for your personal details on the pretext of giving you a free holiday!

Some more on the next-gen DVD front. Ars Technica investigate the economics of Blu-Ray Vs HD DVD while The TechZone look at it from a different viewpoint.

Thedriver notes that there are only 7 days to go until ... well, we're not sure what really, but the countdown on the ATI Website says that 'd over t = V'.

If you're one of those people who suffer motion sickness when playing video games then thetron might have found out why! Sadly, there doesn't seem to be any real solution other than not playing those games.

Palm + Microsoft: The second sign of the apocalypse? Is Microsoft heading towards an open source model? I doubt it but the folks at Design Technica say that "It is interesting to note, that Sun is now getting along with Microsoft and Microsoft is leaning more and more towards an Open Source model over time."

Switches. Where would we be without them? I don't know but if you are a case modder then the chances are that you have had to fiddle with a Switch at some point in time. CaseModGod have a Switches 101 guide posted and they cover quite a lot of different switches. Switches. Witch switch.

Something from Mistikal: "I stumbled upon a program that act's just like KVM software, and I'm finding it very useful. Basically, it's a peice of software, that hooks 2 computers up in a similar fashion to having dual screens. You have 2+ computers, each with their own screen, but one keyboard and mouse." Get it from here and read the user guide.

White Rhino reminds us that Google Video beta is online with hours and hours of free TV to watch from all over the ... USA. Lots of news channels there.

Ars Technica check out five different Photo Album applications. If you're a keen user of one of these digital cameras, or perhaps a newer model, you'll need to organise all those photos.

On a lighter note, next time you pass through a toll booth on a highway somewhere and find yourself short of cash, consider leaving them an I.O.U. It might just work. Thanks nuxie1.

Anyone care for a Giant Pink Bunny? From Tank.
