Microsoft boasts that Windows Vista is possibly one of the most secure operating systems to date and sports a plethora of security orientated features, but pirate organization Paradox is still giving the new OS a run for its money. Paradox's new crack installs and fully activates Windows Vista without the product ever contacting Microsoft to verify the installation. The crack exploits special product keys used for installing Vista on distributor machines quickly and easily without 'phoning home' while emulating special BIOS code which allows Vista to be...

In the mean time, at least you still have our content available for access. Thanks! Team HH... Read more...
You might dismiss this headline as pure tech geekedness but you'd be missing out.  This is the real deal and may some day allow people with disabilities to do things they never have before.  An exoskeleton that can be worn by a human is a new type of robot under development at Tsukuba University. It's called Hybrid Assistive Limb, HAL for short, and anyone who wears it has potential to lift up to 10-times the weight they normally could. "It depends on his original power, because this robot suit is controlled by the assist ratio," says Yoshiyuki Sankai of Tsukuba University. "Usually... Read more...

Ever notice that many things in science-fiction, especially from a technology standpoint, eventually become reality?  Buck Rogers showed us the first Laser Gun and there have been plenty of examples, (the Jetsons and Video Phones?) since then.  Well, you Mech Warrior fans ought to get a boot out of this one.  "Called The Land Walker, it weighs close to 1 ton (2,000 pounds!) and is controlled by four pedals from inside the cockpit. Additionally, it has built-in air guns that can shoot bullets (not real bullets, though..."sponge bullets"). Talk about a totally pimped out Halloween... Read more...

While doing my usual surfing routine today, I came across an interesting read over at CNET. Some creative artists have made their mark in the oddest of places, a microchip. Some of the designs are really neat, I suggest you check them out. Also in the news today, Samsung has agreed to plead guilty to price fixing, and will pay a $300 million fine. Goodnight folks! Ubuntu v5.10 (Breezy Badger) @ Phoronix "Looking at this release first hand, it continues to look incredibly promising for the GNU/Linux movement and we hope that Mark Shuttleworth continues to invest in this valuable commodity....

Hey folks, we get the evening news all ready for ya. Recently, information about Nvidia's G70 has been circulating around the net. Josh at PenStar Systems attempts to pick out the truth from the sea of rumors, so check out what Nvidia's next offering might offer. Swiftech MCP-350 & PolarFLO TT Pumps Review @ GruntvillE.com | Image "Now many would say that this design, with the inlet and outlet facing the same direction, does not make sense. The water comes up and then has to make a 90 degree turn to go out. Why did they design it like that? Wouldn't the performance be even better if it... Read more...

Abit's KT7A-RAID Socket A Motherboard Don't miss out... By Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta March 8, 2001 The competition in the CPU and motherboard chipset markets over the last year or so has been incredible. AMD has evolved into Intel's fiercest competitor and are consistently gaining market share. AMD's Athlon line of CPUs have steadily won over power users and budget shoppers alike with their high performance and relatively low prices (at the time this is being written a 1.2GHz T-Bird is selling for $236, while a 1 GHz Pentium III sells for $251). AMD can attribute their current market... Read more...
