There's a 160GB hard disk drive roundup on HWSecrets. I didn't know they were even still making 160GB HDD's! :) Of course there is the option of buying a 250 GB or bigger model, but on this review we decided to focus on the low-cost market, leaving models with higher capacity for a future round-up (you can count on it!).

HWZone meanwhile have a trio of GeForce GTX 260 video cards and some passive HDD coolers from Scythe and Titan are compared on MadShrimps. In this article we take a closer look at three solutions from Titan and Scythe which aim to cool your HDD without fans; two of these products, Titan TTC-HD90 and Scythe Himuro also help reduce noise.

Dan has his 200th letters column posted. In this edition: Yet another plug-in "power saver", magic spark plugs, the anatomy of a "data entry" scam, and hydrogen-power claims examined.

Wayne noticed that there were more entries in the periodic table of videos uploaded a few days ago. Quite a cool way to learn about some of the more obscure elements in the form of short videos.

Sniper spotted an interesting article about SSD's lasting longer than servers very soon. Samsung Electronics and Sun Microsystems said on Thursday that they had collaborated to develop a single-level-cell (SLC) NAND flash memory device for use in solid state drives that offers much higher endurance levels than any other flash memory device on the market today.

Anthrox sent in some pics of an extremely dusty PC. Found this PC at work a few months ago it had been running a few years in a manufacturing environment the hdd finally died.

Panasonic have a giant touchscreen on display. The dully named Digital Wall might not do multi-touch, but the size of the thing makes it a must-see if you ever get down there.
