Congrats to FearTec who won our recent Gigabyte contest!

Everyone's talking about the new Duke Nukem Forever teaser video. The King is back and here is the trailer to prove it. Duke Nukem Forever is finally coming on May 3rd, 2011 in North America for the 360, PS3, and PC and on May 6th Internationally. ESRB Rated M for Mature: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Mature Humor, Nudity, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Drugs and Alcohol.

Vint Cerf has a few things to say to Australia, including that internet censorship isn't effective, but he likes our NBN plan. Vint Cerf, who helped develop email and TCP/IP technology, told The Australian during a visit to Sydney yesterday he thought the NBN was a "stunning investment". "I continue to feel a great deal of envy because in the US our broadband infrastructure is nothing like what Australia has planned," he said.

Tony spotted a video from earlier this month about Razer's Switchblade. I didn't realise it had a funky Optimus-like keyboard. The Razer Switchblade concept was designed to bring the full keyboard/mouse experience on the desktop on a handheld device. The dynamic keyboard and the ultra-sensitive multi touch screen are the key elements that give this portable gaming device the ability to play on the go without sacrificing precision and control.

Gainward meanwhile sent out a press-release for their new video card with 3GB RAM. This is officially getting silly now. These beefy 3GB frame buffer are to be filled quickly owing to the most powerful and enhanced GF110 chipset, Fermi 2.0 architecture; it is a tribute to enthusiastic hardcore gamers worldwide with the screaming performance and quiet cooler design.

TomsGuide report on a tank with active camouflage. When you've got an unstoppable machine in the battlefield, giving it invisibility almost seems like cheating. BAE Systems doesn't care; as part of their Future Protected Vehicle program, the weapons manufacturer is developing a camouflage system that will make tanks almost invisible.

A Queensland man's retro gaming collection was destroyed by the flood. PC-Engines, old Sega consoles, Neo Geos, Spectrums, FM Town Martys, old Nintendo Game & Watch handhelds...all gone.

From a different Tony, this handy PCI database site. Just the thing I needed when trying to find what model of network card was in a friend's laptop I was fixing a few days ago. Which reminds me of a conversation we had in IRC recently, about what to do when you find yourself dropped into the "computer guy zone" for your family & friends. What do you do? Charge them? Grin and bear it? Swap for favours in their own areas of skill? Let me know in the comments. :)
