PalmButler 3000
WebMasterP
Guru3D has the first review I've seen of the PalmButler 3000. This isn't for your palm pilots or handhelds, it's far cooler. If you're into music or video on your computer at all, you have to check this out.

Videocard Water Cooling Block
WebMasterP
BurnoutPC has reviewed the Swiftech MCW-50 Watercooling Block. The review achieve some pretty impressive results; so, it might be worth a look for those of you looking into watercooling.

Free 3D Glasses
WebMasterP
If you were jonsin' for some 3D Glasses for your computer setup, PCRefuge has a contest for you. They're giving away a 'X3D Gaming System'. The requirements are a bit steep in my opinion, but that's just me and, in case you forgot, you are you and I am me. Amazing.


Asus P4G8X Deluxe
WebMasterP
Are you in the mood ... for some Granite Bay lovin'? Hexus.net has your hookup with a review of the Asus P4G8X Deluxe. It's a pretty thorough review too.

Semiconductor Physics
WebMasterP
HardwareAnalysis.com has posted an article on Semiconductor Physics. This is part 1, so obviously there will be more. The article is well written and definitely worth your time (if you don't already know how semiconductors work).

80mm Fans Reviewed
WebMasterP
Two 80mm fans have been reviewed over at BlargOC.com, one from Cooler Master and one from Akasa. This review isn't great and you'll probably live if you miss it, but if you have the time, I'd check it out.

2 Promise Cards Reviewed
WebMasterP
PimpRig.com has a little dual review action. They check out the Promise FastTrack TX2000 and Ultra133 TX2. One supports RAID and one doesn't. It's not a very long review so you won't fall asleep reading it and it's very 'to the point.'

And if THAT wasn't enough...
DuffMan
Those of you who enjoy online "music swapping" services and don't like the RIAA should get a kick out of this little news clipping. The recording industry has been attempting for some time now to crack down on downloading music, and reducing the relative ease thereof. However, just like my favorite television show, there's always a twist: the RIAA.org site was (gasp) hacked! And not for the first time.... Something tells me maybe they'll complain to the feds.

Check out the story at The Register.


Feds Want Your Opinion
WebMasterP
Got input on hacking? Tell it to the Feds. Smile
Sick and tired of a revolving door justice system that lets hackers skate with just a few measly years in prison? Or do you think that the courts are already too hard on online miscreants who sometimes go up the creek for longer than many killers?

Either way, the U.S. government wants to hear from you.
You can read the whole article over at Security Focus.


DMCA Article
WebMasterP
An interesting article on the DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act) has been posted over at Sudhian.com. It's called "Read This All You Want--Just Don't Print It." Obviously, it's mostly opinion, but I agree with all of it. I think this law is going to get out of hand quickly.

Creative Audigy 2 Platinum
WebMasterP
While this review could have been put out much earlier, it is the best review of the Creative Audigy 2 Platinum I have seen yet. The guys over at XbitLabs put together a nice review and this one is very complete. If you're thinking about getting one, check this out first.

Shuttle SN41G2
WebMasterP
Shuttle's only nForce motherboard is the Shuttle SN41G2. It's based on the newer nForce2 and all fits in Shuttle's famous tiny case. Definitely worth a look in my opinion.

Leadtek K7NCR18D
WebMasterP
Leadtek keeps rolling about the motherboards. Their latest nForce2 motherboard, the Leadtek K7NCR18D, is subject of Beyond3D's newest review.

Bulgin LED Switches
WebMasterP
BurnOutPC has reviewed some Bulgin LED Switches. These are just some cool looking, sturdy LED switches but worth taking a look at if you're modding.

2002 Look Backs
WebMasterP
At about this time every year a bunch of "2002 Look back" articles. I got wind of a few, Gaming In 3D has one that I agree with for the most part. OCPrices.com has a Best of 2002 article too. I should note that I disagree with almost everything on this list. There is no way ABIT should be the motherboard manufacturer of the year. Their motherboards have incredible RMA rates and haven't really achieved anything that special, in my opinion.
