I keep forgetting to link this podcast blooper when I put the new episodes up. Anyway, it's from about Episode 5 and contains a swearword, so be warned. :) Agg gets the intro wrong.

A few people sent word that Opera 9 has been released. This is of course a web browser.. new features list here.

Some snippets from insider: Jobs may have it wrong on iTunes movies. French Microsoft website hacked. Trojan targets Google hosting service.

UKGamer have their thoughts on Intel's Core 2 technology. Truth be told Intel's Core architecture can't arrive soon enough as Intel, by their own admission were being beaten in the lucrative enterprise and desktop markets.

Evolving noticed these Formula 1 mousepads. Hand-made in England exclusively for Formula 1 by specialist composite technicians who make Formula One monocoques, this carbon mouse mat was designed using state of the art automotive 3D modelling software. A state of the art flat rectangle for 260 pounds.. riiight.

Sticking with sport, Bit-Tech have a EA FIFA mod project. The end result looks more like ice-skating to me. :)

MadShrimps have an LGA775 CPU Cooler Roundup. We compare nine different Intel socket 775 heatsinks from Thermalright, Zalman, Titan, Scythe, GlobalWin and Thermaltake in our latest roundup. Can they prevent a Pentium 4 Prescott from melting without ruining our ears?

Windows Live Messenger 8.0 has gone from beta to final release (version 8.0.0787) and can be downloaded from here. Messpatch for this Windows Live Messenger 8.0 has been released and can be downloaded from here. Messenger Plus! Live is going to be released on Sat 24 June 2006 at 23:40 GMT (Sun 25 June 2006 at 09:40 I think in Australia time zone) and will be available on a new website found here. More info here on how it'll compete with Skype, thanks insider.

XYZComputing report on 2.5" HDD's on the desktop. We put the Seagate Momentus 5400.3 160GB SATA notebook drive in our test system and took it for a spin.

LegitReviews have an 8-way SLI/CrossFire PSU roundup. Our goal was to take a sample of the SLI and Crossfire approved power supplies and put them through some torture testing to make sure they perform up to our standards.
