A few people sent in this Mouse Without Borders tool from MS. In a nutshell, it allows you to reach across your PC's as if they were part of one single desktop.

Sounds like Synergy but only for Windows PCs.

PC Perspective has some info about the recent Bulldozer First Release. Bulldozer is the future of AMD, and they had better get it right in pretty short order.

Meanwhile Geek.com reckon the 8-core 3.6GHz will be only USD $266.

Samsung must not sell the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany because it looks too much like Apple's iPad 2, the district court in Düsseldorf ruled on Friday. In addition, Samsung Germany may not sell the device in any other European Union country, although other Samsung divisions may sell into those countries, a spokesman at the court said.
