If you're looking for information on the ultimate mobile ATA hard drive, our friends at the Tech Report have the scoop.  Geoff just posted up a mobile hard drive round-up that'll arm you with the information you need to make an educated purchase. "To gain a better understanding of how the performance of today's latest and greatest 2.5" mobile ATA drives looks, we've gathered seven drives from the likes of Fujitsu, Hitachi, Seagate, and Western Digital. This mix of drives includes a little of everything, including a 160 GB perpendicular monster and a couple of 7,200-RPM speed demons. We've also thrown in a lowly 4,200 RPM drive that... Read more...
Digitimes reports that Intel is currently being favored over VIA for UMPC designs. Apparently, the price differential of $400 or more does not outweigh the strength of the Intel brand name for consumers. That's a shame as many find the UMPC designs very compelling until their heart stops beating after seeing the sticker price. Hopefully, prices will come down over time and we'll have several options for hardware to power these handheld devices. Market sources indicated that Microsoft originally planned to partner with VIA Technologies to promote its "Origami" Ultra-Mobile PC (UMPC), as VIA's C7-M embedded processor is priced... Read more...

Wired has posted their latest installment of their annual Vaporware awards for your viewing pleasure. In this industry, it is not uncommon to have a long list of unfulfilled promises from vendors to bring the greatest new products to market. From Microsoft Vista to a handful of highly anticipated software titles like the infamous Duke Nukem Forever, there are certainly a handful of widely known failures to execute. The ever-delayed debut of Microsoft's next version of Windows, Vista, is a long-running vaporware joke. It's been put off so many times, it's been called "Hasta la Vista."... Read more...
Anandtech has posted an in-depth preview of AMD's upcoming AM2 processor platform. Without question, a large majority of the industry knows that the largest change this new platform brings is the introduction of DDR2 memory to the AMD architecture. However, there are several additional changes with AM2 that accompany that new technology. It was already clear the new CPU would require DDR2 memory, but it appears AMD is also using this architecture change to upgrade the current mounting scheme for Athlon 64 heatsink/fans. The new design is certainly very secure - more stable than the current design - but there are very few existing heatsink/fans... Read more...
Playstation 3 Week brings word that  outspoken (former) Playstation 3 developer Josh Robinson has been fired by Sony for violating NDA and smearing the PS3 name in his highly-publicized "review" of PS3 development. The website managed to interview Josh to see what the fallout of the article entailed and what his plans moving forward are. For some (myself included), the firing of this former developer is no suprise and is to be expected. When a 3D Artist for an upcoming console starts bad-mouthing their own company's product, does anyone expect anything good to happen?Did I knowingly break NDA? I absolutely did not. I would never do that and I would never want to hurt Sony Online.... Read more...
Anandtech has published a brief overview of the new X3 Reunion demo which will likely become a widely used benchmarking tool. The team tests the demo on a wide variety of processors and GPU's to help illustrate how demanding this new demo truly is. Although a GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB was included, it would have been interesting to see how the X1900XTX would have fared. We found that the X3 rolling demo makes a good benchmark due to its excellent graphics. The benchmark is fairly long and covers many different aspects of the game like fighting and building complex structures. In addition to being able to adjust standard settings like resolution...
