Here's an interesting tidbit from Gary_J - this $1 coin on ebay is worth a mint (ho ho) because it was mis-printed on one side with the 10c die. There's only a few thousand in circulation.. maybe you've got one in your pocket? :)

From Voltus: ASUS puts the graphics chips on the reverse side of the card, and x1800xt needs a redesigned pcb to stabilise the clock speeds.

Acid sends word that Apple have removed the eMac from their Australian lineup. I didn't even know they were still making them.

Brett spotted this odd one: COUPLES are turning to the laboratory to create "biojewellery" - bone rings grown from their DNA as a token of their love. He also sent in a story about a new Nissan concept car, that seems to be a gamer's dream.

Hexus have a sneak peek of a new phase-change cooler from OCZ. The Cryo-Z features a copper base to its compressor head and an 'industrial grade compressor' according to OCZ. Xcalibur meanwhile spotted a watercooling system using a water chiller instead of a radiator here. Warning, page has annoyingly loud music on it.

Boyd noticed that the world's longest concert has played another note. An abandoned church in eastern Germany is the venue for the 639-year-long performance of a piece of music by American experimental composer John Cage.

HWZ have a preview of an interesting dual swappable GPU video card from MSI. It seems that MSI has found a way to put two MXM modules together in an SLI configuration without the need for any complicated hardware modifications on the MXM modules. More pics and info here on HotHardware.

From TiMOiD: Microsoft are releasing a new version of msn messenger called Windows Live Messenger (I was invited to participate in the beta) Apparently it's a component of www.live.com which im guessing is microsofts attempt at emulating google. There's a bit more info in this thread and this thread in our forums.

ThinkComputers have a blast from the past, in the form of a Commodore Navigator Combo. Are you keeping up with the Commodore? :)

Interesting Forum Threads:
250W AT PSU converted to Bench Supply in Modding & Electronics.
975X & Crossfire up and running in Intel Hardware.
Presler & Yonah start selling in Intel Hardware.
30yo and trying online FPS in Games.
