Firstly, as most people know the new AMD Barcelona has finally been released. We have reviews from; Hot Hardware, PC Perspective, Techware Labs and TechReport.

Chile Hardware has sent news that Tuniq is entering the PSU market. However a warning, this page is in what I believe is spanish.

As pictures of the highly anticipated Intel X38 chipset surface, OC Workbench have pictures of the Abit IX38. IX38 MAX is based on Intel X38+ICH9R chipset. It supports the highest 1333FSB processors e.g. Intel Core 2 Duo/Quad/Extreme series. It has 4 DIMM slots supporting 4 x DDR3-1066/1333. Max capacity is 8GB. The difference between this and IX38 Quad is that IX38 Quad supports DDR2 while this supports DDR3.

Dailytech has posted an article about a hack discovered for the iPhone. This hack allows free ringtones to work on your iPhone. It seems as though the good news continues to roll in for iPhone users. On Wednesday, Apple announced a $200US price cut for the 8GB iPhone and dropped the price on the 4GB model to $299US until supplies run out. Yesterday, Steve Jobs announced to the Apple faithful that those that purchased iPhones before the price drop would be given $100US of in-store credit to the Apple Store.

And lastly, XbitLabs have an article about VIA's future in the chipset market. Via Technologies, a struggling designer of chipsets and developer of central processing units (CPUs), has reportedly lost an executive who was in charge of the company’s chipset business along with a group of core-logic developers. The resignation of an exec spurred further rumours regarding the chipset business of Via.
