Sweden has convicted its first 'pirate' since the country made the downloading of music and movie files illegal in 2005.  45-year-old Jimmy Sjostrom was charged last October with infringing upon intellectual property rights when he allowed four music files to be shared from his computer. The penalty, a fine of a whopping 20,000 Swedish crowns ($2,843), is being seen by the International Federation for the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) as a victory in their war against file-sharing. The verdict only concerns four songs and it costs the one sentenced about 20,000 crowns in fines -- that is 5,000 crowns per song," IFPI said in a statement. "Illegal file-sharing... Read more...
Whether AMD or Intel is on top of the CPU world, there's one CPU related area in which Intel has historically been very successful: Compilers.  With today's press release, it seems that Intel is taking their current focus on multi-threading even further: "Intel Corporation today announced the availability of two software products that help developers efficiently create more reliable, high-performing applications that speed up a computer's responsiveness. The Intel® C++ Compiler and Fortran Professional Editions bring together a unique combination of highly optimizing compilers, performance libraries and the Intel Threading Building Blocks."

Just kidding. But people in the cell phone world do call Samsung's UpStage music phone the "Mullet Phone," because it has a cell phone in the front, and an MP3 player in the back. Business in the front, party in the back, as they say. And Samsung expects the highly touted Apple iPhone to help sales of their UpStage, not hurt them. Apple's first attempt at an iPod-phone hybrid, the much-derided Motorola Rokr, never took off, and may have turned off potential buyers to the idea of a music phone. That may change with the launch of the impending iPod. If Apple continues its successful iPod marketing strategy, expect a saturation-bombing marketing... Read more...

Traditional magnetic platter hard drives not cutting it for you? Well what ever the reason, you may now have a legitimate alternative. Recently, according to The Inquirer, companies have been taking advantage of advances in NAND memory to create 2.5 inch flash disk drives with high enough capacities and performance to be practically used in notebooks. With capacities ranging from 32Gb to 160Gb, some read speed is left to be desired in comparison to traditional HDs, but the write speed of flash drives blows their magnetic predecessors out of the water. It seems that 2007 will be the year of flash-based drives finally starting to nibble into the market share of the only current logical... Read more...

Microsoft released Windows Mobile 6.0 for all your PDA needs. But it's competition isn't really other PDA operating systems. It's the smartphone market it's got to fight for market share with. Ars Technica has the rundown: Windows Mobile 6 has a decidedly Vista-like look and feel, but some of the largest upgrades have been under the hood. However, Microsoft says that the OS will not require significantly more RAM and CPU power than the previous version. Version 6 comes with features designed to improve integration with Office 2007 and Outlook 2007. It also comes with Office Communicator, a mobile version of Microsoft's enterprise-level...

Today we've launched an analysis on two mid-range graphics cards from HIS based on the AMD-ATI Radeon X1650 XT graphics processor.     HIS Radeon X1650 XT IceQ Turbo and Radeon X1650 XT iSilence II... Read more...
  About a month ago, we had the privilege of reviewing HIS' Radeon X1950 Pro, a mainstream oriented graphics card that performed well, but we felt ultimately came up short against the similarly priced GeForce 7950 GT.  The model we received was outfitted with an oversized cooler dubbed the IceQ3 Turbo, came overclocked by default, and supported CrossFire natively using internal ribbon cables, much like SLI with NVIDIA's cards. Although we found much to praise regarding the performance of the X1950 Pro, we found that the lack of availability of HIS products in the reseller market, combined with the possibility of DirectX 10 becoming much more important...

There is an interesting story posted at CNN today that explains how a businessman travelling in Germany was able to use his laptop to nab a burglar that was robbing his house. He logged on to his laptop and via the Internet saw live images of the burglar at work. He then phoned his wife, who was not at the house but called the local police. "She told us the details about the thief and where in the house he was as we surrounded the house," police officer Americo Rodrigues told Reuters. That'll teach you criminals to always be on the lookout for a webcam!  You never know who might be... Read more...

Nintendo's new Wii gaming platform launch  is kind of flying under the radar. But it's cheap, and new, and innovative. And you can buy add-ons for its motion sensing "Wii-mote" controller already. Nintendo wants you to hold the motion sensing controller, lovingly dubbed the 'Wii-mote', in your hands to control your bat, racquet, club, steering wheel or more. But along with the launch of the Wii in the US has come a range of Wii-mote add-ons that are so cool and affordable, you'll want them for the novelty value if nothing... Read more...
