Sabretooth spotted some info about Samsung's hybrid hard drive or HHD. Q: Will Windows XP users be able to enjoy the new drives or will it work only on Vista? A: HHDs are designed to work only with Vista. . Hmm, can't really see how/why that would be enforced.

You might have thought those AMD logos on the Ferrari F1 cars just meant sponsorship money had changed hands. HWSecrets reckon there's more to it than that. They are also providing the technology infrastructure for the carís telemetry system, which collects data in real time and send to Ferrari team during the races, so they can check in real time if something is going wrong and also instruct the driver of corrections he should make in the way he is driving in order to achieve a higher performance during the race.

Trigger210 spotted news that the Halo movie has been canned. Both Universal and Fox Studios have pulled out of the Halo movie adaptation, citing rising movie costs and concern over the inexperience of first time director Neil Blomkamp.

Sniper sent in this page about hard drive recovery with videos and other suggestions of what to do when it all goes wrong (including, it seems, paying them to fix it. :) )
