JadeMonkey is doing some research into Australia's trade deficit and running a survey. As well as being a long-time OCAU member, I am a student in the Australian National University's Bachelor of Commerce Honours Program in the school of Accounting and Business Information Systems. As part of my honours research, I am conducting a short experiment, which aims to provide a better understanding of Information & Communications Technology (ICT) investment decisions. I hope to shed light on Australia's growing ICT trade deficit - a record $21 billion in 2006. To put this in perspective, Australia imported more ICT products and services than exports of iron ore, beef and wheat combined. Accordingly, I believe this is one of the largest issues facing Australian business.

Bit-Tech have posted a guide to making a modular PSU. Some days, it's hard to be a modder in the current technology boom. It seems that everywhere you look, the great ideas that once only existed in top end mods can now be bought for a tenner on some site. Fan controllers, LCD displays, coloured and sleeved power supplies - you name it, there's now a commercial product for it.

The Crysis demo has been delayed to October 26th. We have some news to announce. First, I am sorry for the bad news - the Crysis single player demo will now be available everywhere on October 26th, 2007. We are taking some extra time to make sure you that you have an amazing experience but also we did not want to risk the release date of Crysis at this stage. To get the game into your hands by November the 16th, we had to make this call.

David spotted this amazing Xbox 360 case mod which is set to be sold on Ebay. Our mailbox was greeted with pictures of the following truly limited edition Halo Xbox 360. The creator is mentioned to be from the UK and is called 'Craget' with the following unit taking him 2 months to complete in his spare time. There are no internal modifications apart from the base cooler that he fitted with some LED's used to light up the case. The creator will soon put his creation up on eBay too.

Tweakguides have posted a tweakguide for the game Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. I've prepared an Enemy Territory: Quake Wars Tweak Guide as a compilation of all the important information players of the game will need to maximize their gameplay advantage. From full coverage of the in-game settings through to all the major advanced tweaking required both to optimize and customize the game, it's well worth checking out whether you're a new or experienced player.

NGOHQ have found a way to force a 1000Hz USB sample rate in Windows Vista. Microsoft Windows default USB sample rate (125Hz - 8ms response time) is surely not enough for today's end-users. There are too many 1000Hz (1ms) patches out there, but most of them aren't supporting Windows Vista due to the new security features, especially in Vista x64. However, I found a way to do it, but I'm not taking any responsibilities for any damage, so use it at your own risk! If you're still interested - just follow these instructions."
