AusGamers have the new Crysis E3 2007 Gameplay HD Trailer, a 302MB file offering 3 minutes of in-game footage. More info here on Shacknews. I notice AusGamers also have Episode 14 of Pure Pwnage.

Digitimes report on new server platforms from Intel in 2Q08, and 45nm AMD Fusion CPUs sampling at TSMC.

Finally, I can have my flying car. Might need to get a haircut first though, those fans look a bit scary. To avoid the need to pass FAA regulations, the civilian version of the Volantor is restricted to heights of 10 feet, but can travel as fast as 50mph and fly for up to 90minutes.

An odd one from Timbot, suggestions that magnetic avalanches can mangle your hard drive data. The atoms undergo spin precession, which only lasts a few nanoseconds and is then stopped by the atoms settling into their new spin direction. But while exhibiting spin procession they can exert enough force on neighboring atoms to change their spin direction also.

Phoronix have info on Threaded Building Blocks 2.0 from Intel, which aims to make multi-core programming easier. To drive interest in TBB 2.0, Intel has announced an open-source competition for integrating TBB into open-source projects where you can win a multi-core laptop.
