There's been another breakthrough with quantum entanglement. "We think Star Trek is really very good science fiction but I'm afraid teleporting people is not possible with current technology. But we could use some scheme to teleport information."

IGN report on the movie Stolen Life, an Australian machinima film screening at the Sydney Film Festival. I've always been really interested in science fiction - and robots in particular. When I was deciding on my next project to do, I knew I wanted to keep it simple. Most science fiction is set in far-off galaxies and I was very interested to see what entertaining science fiction I could do within our own solar system.

Intel are showing off their 4-core 45nm Penryn CPUs at Computex.. spy pics on HotHardware and benchmarks on LegitReviews. With a pair of 3GHz Penryn processors locked and loaded in the V8 machine, Intel set off to show the raw power of their upcoming processors.

If astronomy is your thing, Sniper says you should check out Stellarium. Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer.

If you're a P-plater in the Penrith area you may be eligible to earn some bucks doing a survey thing, thanks Supreme_101.

LegionHW checked out Intel Conroe Cache Performance. This is because Intel has not only created a range of processors that operate at different frequencies, they also feature different front side bus speeds and L2 cache capacities. Today we are going to compare the 1MB, 2MB and 4MB L2 cache processors at the same frequency using the same front side bus.

If you fancy yourself as a games designer and you live on the Gold Coast, you should enter this competition.

Entries close at the end of the month.

From Tarrith: Just a little something about the electric bike that was posted on the main site. Heres a bloke that did a home mod in Sydney :D And something about interesting batteries made by the University of New South Wales.

Jastormont spotted an article called The Google Problem on Microsoft-Watch. Google performs its search and search keyword magic mostly around information produced by others. The company's success derives from the good works of others. Google is like the middleman of the Web, the car salesman—or, more aptly stated, the financial broker. Google doesn't produce the information, just another—and arguably better—means of consuming the information.

Another contest! This time it's on Tweaktown, who are giving away a sealed copy of Command and Conquer 3. You just have to email them the answer to a question.
