Here's a few YouTube videos: Maxtor HDD dominos from Komodo, hard drive innards working from Ambush and hard drive platters zooming off from Timbot.

Matt sent word that another episode of MariposaHD.tv has been released. This one seems to be even less technology-related than previous ones.. but if you want to show off your HDTV setup I guess this is one way. :)

Dan checked out some vintage IBM keyboards. There's a very butch "industrial" one, a lazily designed but highly usable space-saver, and a split 'board that has to be seen to be believed.

From Bary: In case you weren't aware the Impossible Music Festival is on right now and will go through until midnight on Sunday. The set list is here.

Phoronix have compared the open and closed drivers from ATI's R300. Five months ago to the day, we had compared the open-source and fglrx display drivers here at Phoronix for the ATI R200 generation components. However, how do the drivers compare for the newer R300 generation components?

LegionHW compared the Radeon X1650 Pro and GeForce 7600 GS chipsets in the mid-range arena. Although some of the real-world gaming performance was much the same, there were a few titles that seemed to slightly favor a particular card.

Sniper sent word that MS are considering Vista coupons for the holiday season. As part of the deal, designed to drive PC sales though the holiday season, Microsoft will include coupons in each Windows XP SKU that will entitle users to a free or discounted Vista upgrade when the next-generation operating system ships in the first quarter of 2007, industry sources said.

From Greg: Yawn. So Dlink plans to release a phone that will do either GSM or VOIP at the press of Vclick. Yawn.. Nokia E70 already does that without the need to press a button - you can set default to dial on VOIP if in range of an AP, or else use GSM.
