Friday Night (2 Comments) (link)

If you have nothing planned for the weekend, perhaps consider downloading and playing the FEAR Extraction Point Demo that is currently available for download at Ausgamers. Of course there are the OCAU gatherings on the east coast this weekend for those in that area. Others might want to check out Last Train to Freo highlighted to us by allabouttrust.

Pro-Clockers have an article stepping through an HTPC Buildup using NMediaPC products. If you are after something quieter to sit in the entertainment centre, you might want to add a CoolIT Systems Home Theatre PC Liquid Cooler that Futurelooks have previewed. Using one of these Solid State hard drives will make it even quieter still.

With Multi-Core CPUs and Multiple GPUs becoming more and more mainstream don't skimp out on power supply. If you're wondering how much power you're going to need for the next big upgrade, or want to see if you're underpowered, check out the eXtreme PSU Calculator. Speaking of multi-core, Antonio informed us of an article at Anandtech which discusses the Mac Pro. Seems that Kentsfield (quad core) support is there straight out of the box!

Here's something everyone needs to read. Bit-Tech have posted an article on the top 10 unique game controllers. I remember the "NES Zapper" from my childhood and the good times and cursing it bought to me and my school chums. Another good one was sent in by Jonathon Boles about the Apple Product Life Cycle. It definitely puts a spin on Apple's Showtime event, which is covered by HardwareZone.

Finally, the TechZone have had a look at the state of IPTV (Internet Protocol Television). Tough to believe we are now on the third generation of Internet in such a short time (starting in the early '80s). Darn thing just keeps getting better, more versatile, more indispensable. IPTV is now entering the picture and EVERYONE is wildly enthusiastic about the $$$. So...who will reap the profits? I don't know, but it's looking good for those of us who get bad DigitalTV reception.

Have a fun and safe weekend!!
