GamerLimit sent word of a QLD Govt E-Petition in support of an R18+ rating for games. Many campaigns for change in QLD have begun with one of these, and it’s certainly a great start to push the QLD Attorney General into action and pledging his support for a change in the system.

Tweaktown looked at a laptop with 3D Vision. They are announcing, in conjunction with ASUS, the world’s first mobile 3D Vision capable laptop. This is based off of the G51 line up and will be dubbed the G51J-3D. To do this ASUS has packed a 120Hz 15.6-inch LCD screen that is capable of handling the 3D Vision.

Australia has a new fastest supercomputer. The supercomputer was supplied by Sun Microsystems and contains 3,000 quad-core Intel Nehalem processors with 36TB of memory and a petabyte filesystem.

Tweakhound have a Windows 7 tweaking guide. I highly recommend you use Windows 7 in its default state for at least a week before you start tweaking it. There are new features in Windows 7 that may seem like unnecessary bloat at first that you may discover actually help you get things done faster.

Wizzard67 noticed that the Intel SSD toolkit and firmware should be fixed and re-released by the end of the month. Intel has confirmed an issue with the firmware update process for 34nm (G2) Intel® X25-M SSDs (80GB and 160GB). This predominantly affected Windows* 7 (64bit) users during or immediately after the upgrade process to 02HA firmware using the firmware update tool (version 1.3). Intel plans to release a fix for this issue by the end of November 2009.

Brains spotted this laptop reliability study. Mac fans are often quick to claim superior performance from their Apple laptops, but a study from a warranty supplier in the US has ranked the reliability of their hardware fourth behind Asus, Toshiba and Sony.
