Here's a video report about some new-fangled computer thingy called "internet". Video is from 1993. :)

Sniper spotted this new way for cops to get around. For police officers, the T3 is a much safer vehicle than the Segway. Carra told us that criminals could tip a Segway-riding officer over with a simple, well-placed shove.

Hexus report on a new gargantuan CPU cooler from Cooler Master called the GemenII. The GeminII is so large that it also manages to hover above both the VRMs near the I/O ports as well as covering all four DIMM slots on the motherboard.

HardOCP report on their experiences after 30 days with Vista. They also took a look at the first factory overclocked and watercooled gaming PC from Dell. The XPS 710 H2C represents the pinnacle of Dellís engineering, and is the companyís first true no-holds-barred gaming machine, so weíre looking for unparalleled gaming performance, stunning design, rock-solid stability, and exceptional tech support.

Apple meanwhile has released an 8-core Mac Pro, with two quad-core Intel Xeon CPUs. Using two "Clovertown" 3.0GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5300 series processors, the 8-core Mac Pro comes with 8MB of L2 cache per processor (16MB total), 667MHz DDR2 ECC fully buffered DIMM memory, eight FB-DIMM slots on two memory riser cards (four slots per card) supporting up to 16GB of main memory and 1.33GHz, 64-bit dual independent frontside buses.

XbitLabs looked at the Conroe-L processors, which are essentially "Conroe Celerons". So, it looks like Celeron 4XX is the last bastion of the single-core processors in Intelís camp. So our todayís article will be devoted solely to these new processors, and has every chance to become a "single-core memorial" in the end.

One thing you don't make fun of in Thailand is the royal family - as YouTube has discovered. Thailand's military-appointed government blocked access to on-line video-sharing Web site YouTube on Wednesday after its owner, Google Inc., declined to withdraw a video clip mocking the country's revered monarch.

PCWorld list their 50 best tech products of all time. From breakthrough hardware to time-honored software, we salute those amazing products that changed technology--and our lives--forever.

Remember the British hacker who cruised around computer systems in the Pentagon, US Army, Navy and NASA etc, looking for evidence of UFOs? He's lost his extradition appeal and will be facing the music in the USA soon. At the time of his indictment, Paul McNulty, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, said "Mr McKinnon is charged with the biggest military computer hack of all time."

TomsHardware have a guide to enterprise hard drives. The latter are designed for high flexibility, long-term 24/7 operation and high performance environments, and it is time to shed some light on this market segment as well.

MadShrimps played with an X6800 and Liquid Nitrogen, as you do. Itís the need for speed which drives us to go faster and higher, the result with the Cascade cooling was far from disappointing, but we really wanted to join the "minus 10 seconds" SuperPi club, so we loaded up a few liters of LN2 to start an extreme benchmarking sessions.
