Tuesday Afternoon + More CES (19 Comments) (link)
 Tuesday, 16-January-2007  16:58:56 (GMT +10) - by Rational

Heaps of new people have sent in news today, thanks to all of them and keep up the great work!

Check out this tiny pc which measures only 5x5x5.5cm and is decked out with expandability.

CircutRemix has done a comparison benchmark of Photoshop CS3 on Windows XP and Mac OS X. This should shut up the rabid fanboys. "The test results speak for themselves. It's easy to see that Windows XP performs faster for all but 1 of the tests performed. As a total, with the Mushkin 2x1GB and Kingston 2x2GB memory configurations, the test suite ran 27% and 28% respectively faster with Windows XP than OSX. Not only does Windows XP beat OSX in Photoshop CS3 performance, but it demolishes it by a wide margin."

TrustedReviews has posted this article about upcoming games in 2007. "If we’re being brutally honest, and we like to be here at TrustedReviews, 2006 was a mixed year for gaming. As ever there were some classics, with Gears of War, Zelda: Twilight Princess and Oblivion all worth special mention. But, as a whole, 2006 flattered to deceive and major releases only hinted at the glories that are yet to come."

This page has some information of the Beam Software exhibition in Melbourne. "Melbourne readers can experience a slice of Australian gaming history by getting along to the new exhibition at the Australian Center for the Moving Image, "Hits of the 80s: Aussie Games That Rocked The World". The purpose of this free exhibition is to showcase the pioneering work done by Beam Software (Melbourne House) in the early days of personal computers like the Sinclair ZX81 and Commodore 64."

Duncan has sent in this video entitled "Get Perpendicular" which I will class as "edutainment". It explains in great deal the details of perpendicular hard drives in cartoon form with music. As Duncan puts it "the most excellent technical document ever", I agree.

Nick has sent in this article about a woman who has died while participating in a radio station "Hold your wee for a Wii" competition. "Jennifer Strange was found dead on Friday at her home after taking part in a contest named “Hold your wee for a Wii” at the studios of radio station KDND 107.9. The competition involved drinking large quantities of water, with the last person to go to the toilet winning a Wii console – currently out of stock in most of North America."

We also have a shipload of CES content: Hybrid Drives, HDTV, Video Cards & WaterCooling, fast memory keys, , watercooled memory, mini pc's, Zalman Reserator 2, Silverstone's lineup, Mushkin, Digital Experience, Ultra Products and booth babes.
