HotHardware checked out the ASUS Eee PC. Asus made quite a splash at the Computex show last week with the introduction of their Eee PC, a low cost, highly portable machine slated to compete with the OLPC project. At price points of $199 and $299 for 4GB and 8GB Solid State Flash drive-equipped models, respectively. This exclusive first-ever hands-on showcase of the machine shows the two interfaces of its Linux-based operating system as well as its modes of operation, pre-installed open source Office software, and other applications like Skype.

Dan is pondering the one laptop per child idea too. The most famous version of the idea has to be the One Laptop Per Child XO-1, which isn't _meant_ for rich Western nerds, but would suit many of us very nicely just the same. OLPCs won't be making it to retail for a while yet, but a few other manufacturers have suddenly decided to fill the gap. He also has some letters.

NordicHW are breaking more records, with 33622 in 3DMark05. Amazingly the video cards are only aircooled.

From dirtyd: Very interesting and enlightening (video) interview with a man named Brian Beckman, who worked on the maths behind the physics simulation in the game Forza. "Ever find yourself wondering about the math behind your favorite simulation game? Did you know that the motion physics of a car are much more complicated than the those of an airplane?"

XbitLabs continue their 19" LCD monitor roundup, and explain their testing methodology. This article is an explanation of methods we use to test LCD monitors. It provides a list of tested parameters with remarks on their meaning, and a description of the measuring instruments.

LegionHW reckon overclocking the Pentium E2160 is "effortless". Without having to upgrade the cooling we were easily able to push the Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2160 processor from 1.8GHz to 3.0GHz, though it was the 3.4GHz overclock that produced serious performance gains!

From druu: Motorcycle parking in Perth is a joke. This petition is not just about motorcycles and scooters, it is about both protecting the environment and our choice of transport. It has been written to appeal to car drivers as well so if you know any, see if they can sign it too. MC parking in Sydney pretty much sucks too. Remember if you're a rider or wish you were, check out our OCAU Motorcycle Club forum.

Here's a cool old-world LCD PC mod from Pulsee. It's not an English website but the pictures look great. Edit: whoops, some adult ads down the bottom of the page. Here's a better link, thankx tehxan.
