Tonight in the news, Grokster, a well known P2P File sharing service is the latest service making the attempt to go completely legit.

Good morning everyone, welcome back :)  With quite the mammoth amount of snow falling over the past few days, things have been "interesting" up here in the Great White North.  Not that I am really complaining though, this fresh snow has enabled me to patch a few holes in the roof of my igloo which where letting in a nasty draft ;) Nonetheless, it is getting late and the news-bin is filling up.  Here is your AM shot...  Logisys Pitbull 500W Power Supply @ ExtremeMHz "Power supplies are probably one of the most overlooked and under appreciated components in a computer system.

Well it's almost Christmas, and by this time tomorrow I should be eating the food of the holidays :) Turkey, ham, potatoes, squash, and much more... I can't wait! Last I heard, we might get some snow tomorrow, so be safe and have yourself a Merry Christmas! Samsung SCX 4100 Multifunction Printer @ GideonTech.com "I've always been wary of multifunction printers as they provide a lot of options but none are all that great on it's own. Whether it be scanning or printing an image, it used to be better to just buy separate devices and hooking them up. With SCX4100 from Samsung, things may just have changed."

Good morning HH Fans. I really hate to do this, but I needed to cut the banter to a minimum.  I have an early morning meeting on the far side of town and I really don't want to get stuck in rush hour traffic.  So, go grab a cup of coffee and settle in, here is your AM shot...  Eumax 9-in-1 USB 2.0 Flash Genie @ Viper Lair "Having a memory card reader can be quite useful.

Good morning everyone. JeffB checking in to ring in the new weekend. Since I've started working from home, weekends have a lot less meaning than they used to, but I still look forward to them. If all goes well I will be snuggling up with a new piece of hardware this afternoon. Otherwise I think I will be getting out. Thanks to my latest addiction, Far Cry, I haven't gotten out much in the last couple of weeks. I really hate games that don't have in-game saves, but I will say that Far Cry is an exception. If you haven't checked it out, you should, it's one of the best I've ever played. Just be aware, this bad boy stresses even the most powerful systems to the brink of reboots. Little secret, turn...
