There's quite a bit of chatter about a DDoS launched against Revision3, a legal internet TV site. It's interesting because, allegedly, MediaDefender were behind it as part of a misguided anti-piracy attempt. We use the internet and peer-to-peer networks to accelerate the spread of legally traded materials that we own.

Bit-Tech have some sneak peek pics of Nehalem and X58. First, the CPU and its new socket: while the roadmaps say the high-end Nehalem to be launched in Q4 will have up to eight cores, the one MSI had in its office was just a quad-core but with eight threads. They also have pics of AMD's ATI Radeon HD 4850 reference card.

PCPerspective compared AMD's Phenom with the older Athlon X2. It turns out that AMD had been quite busy under the hood, and the results were more impressive than I had originally expected.

Meanwhile, HWZone think AMD are in better shape than they have been for a while. We've got some interesting details of the company's current and upcoming plans for their desktop, mobile and handheld platforms, so read on.

AirQ spotted this page about James Bond gadgets, 100 years on. The subsequent Bond books and films brought to public notice everything from luminous watches to car phones and pagers--long before they became commonplace commodities in contemporary society. The list of gadgets is here on Wikipedia.

TrustedReviews wonder what the future holds for Ubisoft's Tom Clancy games. If EndWar and HAWX can reach the heights that Splinter Cell, Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon have done in the past, that's no bad thing.

Lil spotted this fantastically geeky solution to stopping a cat bringing animals indoors. To put an end to this we have built a computer-controlled device that visually determines if Flo is carrying anything in her mouth when she enters, and if she does, it simply does not let her in.
