Not real sure what to say about this one-a one inch cube mp3 player. The ultimate in portability, and sure to get washed by 43% of its owners in the first week. Then again, the kind of people that would pay $130.00 for a 1 GB 1″ cube mp3 player may not do their laundry as often as every week…..

AppleInsider | Speed of Apple Intel dev systems impress developers

Could it be that (Gasp!) Intel processors will speed Macs up? Could that be the reason for the switch?

19 inch PC Rack by TykSak of ModZone.dk

Now here is a guy who probably built his house entirely by hand! I mean, having a 19″ rack in your house with terabytes of storage is one thing, but building the entire thing from scratch (rack, cases, and all) is the sign of a true modder! Or of needing a life…….still, my hat is off to this guy. Wish he lived next door, I’m sure I could talk him into a KILLER mp3 machine for my truck…..

And isn’t it a little funny-this guy builds enough hardware to run a school system on (I know-I work at a school system) and he doesn’t have “Next” and “Back” links on his pages? Hardware oriented, I guess….

Slashdot | AMD Alleges Intel Compilers Create Slower AMD Code

By , July 12, 2005 9:23 pm

This one is interesting. I am posting the Slashdot listing because the comments give a better understanding of what is going on here than anything else I have found on this issue. Apparently several of the slashdotters have known about this for quite a while, and have been in communication with either Intel, or AMD, or both, about this. IANAL, but AMD’s case is looking better all the time. Sabotaging your compiler to make your competitor’s processor run slower than yours may not be against the law, but when you deny it in the face of what the code says, it sure ain’t going to help your monopoly court case.Slashdot | AMD Alleges Intel Compilers Create Slower AMD Code

HP Finally Delivers On ‘Invent’ – Forbes.com

By , July 12, 2005 9:17 pm

Hewlett-Packard reinvents the inkjet, and lowers the cost of ink refills. Sounds good, but didn’t other manufacturers have printers that didn’t incorporate the printhead in the ink cartridge? Or is the fact that they can us photolithography to make the entire printhead assembly the breakthrough? IANAE (I Am Not An Engineer), so I can’t really say. Paying less for cartridges sounds good, though, but the printer is more. (Of course)HP Finally Delivers On ‘Invent’ – Forbes.com

Petabyte Storage

50 KW Petabyte Storage solution.

The Internet Archive has received delivery of a 600 system, 2500 drive storage system based on Via mini-ITX motherboards running Debian or Fedora Linux.

Now, if they can only port Searchlight to this thing so they can FIND what I’m looking for on it…….
