Seems to be a problem with the mailserver, but I'll see what news we've got..

More from CES: PCPerspective have some video coverage. We look at Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, ATI, Asus, DFI, MSI, Creative Labs and many more. ExtremeMHz meanwhile have some readers choice highlights. TheTechZone cover the parties while Futurelooks focussed on Targus, SanDisk and DFI. TechReport have their show recap posted too. ThinkComputers consider Microsoft's keynote address, while CoolerMaster, MSI and Zalman are covered on XYZComputing.

HAVIC sent in a lengthy read about hyperspace being a possibility. Forget spending six months or more holed up in a rocket on the way to Mars, a round trip on the hyperdrive could take as little as 5 hours.

UKGamer have an interview with ATI about some software topics. I think application specific optimizations are a good thing as long as they do not affect the experience in any way, or reduce the image quality.

PCMech have a guide to making video tutorials. Ever wanted to show someone how to do something on the computer, but can't find an easy way to say it? *Record what you want to show instead!

HardOCP reviewed a couple of prebuilt systems, one they liked and one they didn't.

Sciby spotted an article on DansData detailing at some length his new PC. Remember: Friends don't let friends buy Dell desktops. Laptops yes, monitors yes (or, as I'll explain shortly, possibly "Yes! Yes! Oh, God, YES!"), desktops no.

Pretty much overnight, a massive Battlefield 2 section of our Wiki has sprung up. Grenade!!
