HWSecrets went to the Intel Developer Forum in Tel Aviv, Israel recently. Our coverage of the first IDF held in Israel, home of the design team that created the Pentium M and the forthcoming Merom, Conroe and Woodcrest CPUs.

There's a Quake 4 tweak guide over on TweakGuides. The guide is rounded out with advanced tweaks which have been tested and work on Quake 4, since some of the Doom 3 commands are different for this game.

A Californian man has been arrested for installing adware on about 400,000 PC's. Among the computers he attacked were some at the Weapons Division of the US Naval Air Warfare Center in California and at the US Department of Defense, the prosecutors said.

AMDboard have some pics and info on a tiny ECS mobo that uses AMD's low-power Geode socketA CPUs.

At the other end of the spectrum, Hexus previewed Intel's Lindenhurst Xeon DP platform. It supports
everything the dual-core Pentium D does, including SSE3 instructions and rides the same 200MHz system bus (800MHz effective).

El Nermo Diablo spotted this pumpkin PC, while Bit-Tech have a guitar amp PC based around Creative's X-Fi. RBMods have a WoW plexi PC project (but their site seems a bit broken at the moment.)

TechReport walk us through building a new dual-core PC for daily use. SharkyExtreme have an extreme gaming PC buyer's guide, while a mid-level PC is specced out on TechSpot.

Virtual-Hideout reflect on taking the SLI plunge. I couldn't resist. You know how it is.

I've been interested for a long time in using the normally idle GPU for computationally-intensive tasks. ExtremeTech have some info on an ATI approach to this idea, thanks Josh, who also spotted these ultra-thin client JackPCs.
