Interesting news on the Folding front, with Sony's PS3 and more importantly ATI's GPUs joining the fight soon. Finally, folding on GPUs!

Scythe have a worldwide overclocking competition where you can win coolers and stuff. But you can only enter (the air-cooling contest) if you have a Scythe cooler already.. hmm. Motherboards and even a Core 2 Extreme CPU to be won too, though.

Here's an interesting gadget that will turn your records into CDs. You remember records, right?

Yet more Dell battery issues.. now Qantas have issued an advisory notice about using Dell laptops on their aircraft. One passenger who flew out of Canberra on a Qantas flight on Monday reported that he and his colleagues had encountered security personnel removing the batteries from all Dell computers, and taping up the contact points on the battery.

Forbes have some articles about robots, including "7 amazing robots that will change your life" and "25 great moments in robot history".

Asher reports that Vista won't have Australian program guide support, and won't support HD-DVD or Blu-Ray.

Microsoft have a DigiGirlz Summer Camp where high-school girls can learn about the IT industry. VIA meanwhile have a Get The Girls Contest, to get more girls interested in gaming. Despite that, the BBC report the games industry is failing women.. and I doubt even the upcoming Pink PSP and PS2 will change that much.
