Here's an interesting one, kids using a stealth ring-tone that most adults can't hear. Why, you young whipper-snappers..

XbitLabs compared the nForce 590 SLI and CrossFire Xpress 3200 chipsets for AM2 CPUs. Although the new AMD platform can do perfectly well with the older chipset solutions, ATI and Nvidia released new sets of core logic supporting CrossFire and SLI.

They also compared Gigabyte's high-end video cards. Today we got a great opportunity to look at the new solutions from this manufacturer based on ATI Radeon X1900 XTX and Nvidia GeForce 7900 GTX.

Techgage report on Vista Beta 2 performance. Both the 32-Bit and 64-Bit versions have been put to the test, and are going against Windows XP 64-Bit edition.

Sciby spotted this video with a different take on the PC vs Mac battle.

Google have themselves a new giant super-computing plant, it seems. It is likely to play a major part in Google’s plans to dominate the way in which the world’s information is ordered, stored and distributed.

Dr Stephen Hawking reckons other planets are where we should be looking. Humans could have a permanent base on the moon in 20 years and a colony on Mars in the next 40 years, the British scientist told a news conference in Hong Kong.

Hexus got a sneak look at DFI's upcoming LANParty nForce 590 SLI Intel Edition motherboard. Cast your eyes on the motherboard that should make a perfect partner to Intel's eagerly awaited Core 2 Duo (Conroe) CPU.

TechHounds take a look at ATI's CrossFire, their answer to NVIDIA'a SLI. Even with quite a slow card and a limited system, a pair of Radeon X1600XT in Crossfire scale beautifully in performance.

From ZXR: Our very own "boy band" Rootkit were just on the news about their Google Idol efforts. GOLD! Thought it might be cool mentioning it so people could go vote here.

Marben sent word that coffee may protect your liver from alcohol-induced damage. I knew there was a reason I seek out black coffee "the morning after".

Marben also sent in what may be our weirdest flash timewaster ever: Fabio's Kitchen of Love. I kid you not. Arrange his fridge magnets and make him say something homoerotic, send a "Fabio-gram" to someone or watch the cartoon miniseries "Sprays of our Lives" in his fridge. Well worth checking out if you're bored.
