LegionHW have a Metro 2033 Performance Guide, while Xbitlabs consider GPU performance in the same game. They also ponder GPU power consumption. The graphics cards power consumption is always of interest to gaming fans and as the new GPU generations come out, we do our best to respond to this interest in the most extensive manner.

Adobe have given a sneak peek of content-aware filling in Photoshop. One of the biggest requests we get of Photoshop is to make adding, removing, moving or repairing items faster and more seamless. From retouching to completely reimagining an image, heres an early glimpse of what could happen in the future when you press the delete key. More thoughts about this here on Elated.

Opera have submitted a Mini version of their browser to the Apple Apps Store, in the hope people will be able to use an alternative browser on their iPhones. Given there's some pessimism as to how Apple will respond to this idea, Opera have made a time since submitted counter.

We've seen this before but it's worth another look: a giant poster of computer connectors and sockets to help you identify odd things you find. Version 1.7 hot off the press. I have added even more ports, slots and cards. As well as improved pictures of some existing hardware and fixed some errors. Prints are available.

iXBT also consider GPU vs CPU performance. To make the review more interesting, we used two configurations of similar price. One had a more expensive graphics card, while the other had a correspondingly more expensive CPU. Let's see which configuration would be the optimal.

Ivan has sent an update on his travels: I was on the front page before and wanted to give an update because I know so many people love to read about my travels in the forums. On March 19th, it was one year since I left Australia on a round the world trip through 25 countries, 5 continents and countless adventures. I was in Tibet, all over Central Asia and the Caucasus. I had someone try and set me up with heroin in Uzbekistan and saw Christmas in Bethlehem. I hitchhiked in many of the countries I've been to. I'm only 22 years old and write about my adventures and share my photos on my blog.
