"E-ZPass is an E-ZPass to go directly to divorce court, because it's an easy way to show you took the off-ramp to adultery," said Jacalyn Barnett, a New York divorce lawyer who has used E-ZPass records a few times.Lynne Gold-Bikin, a Pennsylvania divorce lawyer, said E-ZPass helped prove a client's husband was being unfaithful: "He claimed he was in a business meeting in Pennsylvania....

In a interesting twist, a New York boy accused by the Record Industry for being a 'pirate' is fighting back. Claiming he was downloading songs that he already owned on CD and that his accusers have no real way of proving he illegally downloaded, the now man and his attorney are demanding a trial by jury intended to seek among other things compensation for damage to his reputation, distracting him from school, and his family's legal fees. A New York teen, dubbed a pirate by the Record Industry, is counter suing them for defamation, violating anti-trust laws, conspiring to defraud the courts and making extortionate threats.

[H] has asked the question, "Two years ago, NVIDIA announced its MXM socketed initiative for the GPU mobile market. This new technology would allow for a modular GPU slot in all laptops, thus making servicing and upgrades much easier. Two years later, still nothing. Why?" "As lofty as the expectations of the MXM technology are, for the most part the hands of the integrators and the customers have first and foremost been tied by the ODMs who designed the cards, logic boards, and enclosures. In an effort to create more attractive, more innovative designs and system builds, they've taken the reigns away from NVIDIA. We found the contradicting statements between NVIDIA, who remains optimistic... Read more...
DigiTimes reports that widescreen notebooks have reached an impressive 79% of total market share for mobile systems. North America has fallen in love with wide-aspect notebooks as the market share for that region is an overwhelming 85%. In stark contrast however is the market in Japan where the traditional 4:3 aspect screens still hold a strong 48% of the market share. With notebooks being much more capable in terms of multimedia applications, it is not surprising to see that the widescreen LCD is gaining more and more traction though there will always be a home for the standard 4:3 aspect LCD with thin and light systems. "Differences in the penetration of wide aspect ratio notebooks for... Read more...
This one might bring a whole new meaning to one of my favorite discs of all time, Jimi Hendrix's "Smash Hits"... "Information on the glass CD is read by laser. Because existing plastic CDs are not completely transparent, information on them cannot be read perfectly. They are also susceptible to bending or warping if left in sunlight or humid areas, which leads to sound distortion. As glass CDs are completely transparent, information on them can be read perfectly, improving sound quality. They are not affected by heat or humidity and remain in perfect condition forever." Yeah, except when my 6 year-old decides she's going to play frisbee with that sucker.  Then it's... Read more...

XYZComputing.Com has posted up some information regarding Seagate's latest enterprise class hard drive that features new perpendicular recording technology.  It's not a desktop hard drive by any means, considering it's only available in SAS, Ultra320 SCSI, and fibre channel flavors, but the tech will surely trickle down in time.
