As Twitter continues to grow hotter and hotter, pick up more funding, get more morons fired and facilitate more political conversations, individuals that are intimately involved with the operation are desperately looking for ways to monetize it. We'd heard whispers in the past of so-called "premium accounts," but now it sounds like those could be inching closer to reality.According to a new report, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone has said that the firm has hired a product manager to "develop accounts for businesses that would have more features but would cost a fee to use." Of note, Stone didn't clarify... Read more...

  We probably haven't stressed this often enough, whether to you our faithful readers or to our OEM contacts in the PR and Product teams at various companies we work with here at HotHardware.  But let it be known unequivocally now, we LOVE board revisions.  Don't get us wrong, we're not losing it on you.  We'd rather a manufacturer get their product right, out of the gate (and likely, so would they) but when a board revision means taking an already impressive product and making it better, it's sort of like a Tech Editor's nirvana; fewer headaches in testing, more performance,...

The 915/925 duo undeniably brought new technologies to the field, including, but not limited to, PCI-Express graphics, DDR2 memory and the LGA775 socket for Prescott... Read more...
