We haven't a clue why Sony would choose today to introduce its S Series Walkman--after all, the company's Reader Daily Edition was also just announced, and it's undoubtedly the show stopper of the two. At any rate, those more interested in portable music than portable words just might find this tidbit more interesting. As rumored, the S Series Walkman Video MP3 player is real, and while it's definitely no iPod killer, it's unique in its own way. For example, it features built-in stereo speakers, a 2.4" QVGA display, a frame that's under a half-inch thick, video playback of 30fps and a battery life... Read more...

When it comes to solid, reliable networking connections, nothing beats copper at the moment.  It's not the most convenient, as most people (particularly wives and girlfriends) don't want cables running across the floor, or even jacks in walls throughout the house.  That leaves wireless, and although most people have wireless-G at this time, 54 Mbps (when you consider actual throughput) pales in comparison to standard 100 Mbps wired Ethernet.  Even when you consider wireless-N, which still hasn't even been fully ratified, and its up to 300 Mbps speed, throughput isn't that fast by...

If you're still unaware of what these two Anti-Aliasing methods actually do, bit-tech will help clear things up for you. In their latest article, they explain(and show) how these new AA methods used by Nvidia and ATI to improve image quality on transparent textures. "It would simply be too inefficient for game developers to replicate some effects with raw geometry made entirely of opaque textures and polygons. Also, anti-aliasing the scene would also be incredibly taxing, too. As a result, they often resort to using transparent textures... Read more...
