To be honest, after watching the Patriots loose tonight, I'm at a loss for words. I do have to clap for Miami though, since it's amazing they still have that kind of fight left in them with their record. You can't win them all I guess.

It won't win any Gigabit Ethernet races, but you just wait and see how it performs with the tighter timings of DDR memory, and killer overclocking ability." Danger Den TDX Waterblock Review @...

Shuttle went through a complete metamorphosis as a company a few years back, and they haven't looked back ever since.  Their wildly successful line of "XPC" small form factor (SFF) PCs has taken off like no other physical incarnation of the PC has in a very long time.  Not even Mr. Jobs could have predicted the kind of success this product line has enjoyed.  For all intents and purposes the Mac itself never garnered this much interest solely as a result of some of the various small footprint versions it has come to market in over the years.  Apple may have been ahead...

Major product launches don't seem to be getting any easier these days, at least on our side of the fence here in the online media community.  Competition is fiercer than ever in all of the major functional blocks for personal computing, whether it's Graphics, Platform Chipsets, Drive technology or Processors.  It almost seems like major OEMs are driving too hard in an effort to trump the competition.  On the other hand, high tech, as we all know, is a very unforgiving battleground.  And so, it is with cramped weary fingers and bloodshot tired eyes, that we bring you this showcase...
