Less than half an hour until they fire up the Large Hadron Collider for some test runs (but not the big experiments yet). Discussion here, webcams here, webcast here.

There's a new trailer for the upcoming James Bond film, "Quantum of Solace". Quantum of Solace continues the high octane adventures of James Bond in Casino Royale. Betrayed by Vesper, the woman he loved, 007 fights the urge to make his latest mission personal. Pursuing his determination to uncover the truth, Bond and M interrogate Mr White who reveals the organisation which blackmailed Vesper is far more complex and dangerous than anyone had imagined. Looks good! Discussion here.

Anandtech are the latest to check out Intel's new solid-state drive, the X25-M. There's 4 more reviews linked in earlier newsposts also. No one really paid much attention to Intel getting into the SSD (Solid State Disk) business. We all heard the announcements, we heard the claims of amazing performance, but I didn't really believe it. After all, it was just a matter of hooking up a bunch of flash chips to a controller and putting them in a drive enclosure, right?

Tweaktown checked out fifteen USB 2.0 flash drives. By now, few can deny the convenience of having a small size, high volume storage device that is able to travel with them in the same manner as a set of keys or wallet.

OCIA have a Core 2 Overclocking Basics article, while BenchMarkReviews cover GeForce overclocking. Slightly more extreme is this Twintech 9600 GT Overclocked With Phase-Change Cooling on MadShrimps.

Here's a few more video card reviews: Powercolor PCS HD 4670 512 MB on TechPowerUp, Diamond RADEON 4870 X2 on LostCircuits, Sapphire Radeon HD 4670 in Crossfire on Tweaktown and GIGABYTE Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 on Futurelooks.
