It seems that the Folding recruitment drive might be upping our output as it has jumped up in the last couple of days by almost 50,000 points per day. To equal the HardOCP we only need 90,000 points per day. Keep it up!

Bill Gates has appeared on the Daily Show in America talking about Windows Vista which is good to watch for a laugh. Stewart makes the interview pretty funny with references to the mysterious F12 and porn.

Klif has sent in this article about a robotic industrial arm which you can strap yourself into and have rides on. There is a video of a man having a go and whoa it looks like a wild ride. "We've heard of robot arm-driven rides before, but this guy is seriously taking it to the next level. Watch as some brave soul in an anonymous factory floor tames a giant yellow robot arm and rides it to glory as family and friends look on admiringly, giggling uncontrollably in a giddy orgy of industrial robot exploitation."

According to this article some courts are making references to Wikipedia during trials for things like definitions and details on medical conditions. "A simple search of published court decisions shows that Wikipedia is frequently cited by judges around the country, involving serious issues and the bizarre — such as a 2005 tax case before the Tennessee Court of Appeals concerning the definition of “beverage” that involved hundreds of thousands of dollars, and, just this week, a case in Federal District Court in Florida that involved the term “booty music” as played during a wet T-shirt contest."

Engadget has posted a gallery of Windows Vista screenshots for those who want to get a closer look at the look of the new OS released this week. WinSuperSite also has extensive coverage for those still interested.

According to this article Sony is officially set to slash the price of the PS3 by as much as 25%. "Delayed in September 2006 from a planned November 2006 launch, the PS3 will now debut in Europe and other territories that use the PAL TV standard on 23 March, Sony announced last week. Only the 60GB model will be offered at launch, though the 20GB version may appear later in the year, if it's in demand, Sony said. Or if the 60GB PS3 doesn't sell so well, might be a better way of putting it."

TechEBlog has posted a funny page about how not to test your computer. Some things featured includes an oil PC, dry ice overclocking and battery fires with videos included.
