Here's a bit more about The Hon. Helen Coonan dismissing the Australian Games Industry, over on IGN.com.au.

HardOCP checked out five PSUs available for USD$50, as opposed to the super-high-end ones getting most of the press lately.

From Shredder: Here's an interesting thread by forum member dVenator, who has written his own quick implementation of seam-carving.
