I had a couple of people remind me that it had been just about year since my last "blog" post. Well, rather than let it lapse completely, I'll make this post.
You can STILL hear from me though by keeping up to date on our bi-monthly podcast or by following me on Twitter. Both will give you a mix of personal and professional (website) information so you can keep up with what is going on behind the scenes.

I have been running Windows Vista on my personal system now since about January 28th - just a couple of days before official launch. I just so happen to have my system die on me (don't get me started on that...) so I figured the timing was good and I would just move to the new operating system and save myself the trouble of upgrading later.

Believe it not, this year's CES is actually shaping up to be quite a busy one for me. Not because of some elaborate launch plans from NVIDIA, AMD or Intel, but mostly because of the alarmingly high amount of meetings that I have setup for a three day time span. Currently I am 28 -- that's nearly 10 a day and considering all the issues involved with getting around the city of Las Vegas in a timely fashion, I have a feeling I am going to be doing quite a bit of sprinting.

As I sit here this morning, there are numerous people in my kitchen preparing a huge meal just for me...okay, for the rest of the family too, but I get to eat some of it! I am definitely looking forward to a day a sitting on my butt and doing nothing but watching football on the big screen and maybe taking a drive in the car with the windows down and the heat on high.
Now that doesn't mean we are taking the WHOLE weekend off here at PC Perspective; in fact we have lots of stuff to do on Black Friday besides going shopping ta 5am; hopefully none of you are doing that anyw

As it turned out, this was an even crazier weekend with the console releases than I had thought. PS3 caused shootings and fights, while the Nintendo Wii seemed to in just as high demand, with slightly higher availability. One thing that did irk me though was that EBGames (Gamestop), where I preordered my Wii, didn't have the extra controllers, classic controllers, component cables or even the copy of Zelda I had ordered! They apparently only got 3 copies in of Zelda, though they had preordered more than a dozen. So I headed over to the Toys R Us across the street and

Sorry for the long gap between writings -- I won't bother giving any excuses and just get right to the meat. In the world of PC hardware, a lot has happened since IDF in September, including the introdution of quad core processors, a new unified architecture DX10 GPU from NVIDIA and an impressive notebook from Alienware using both SLI and RAID.
At IDF we were introdu

I am currently sitting in my hotel room, several blocks from the San Francisco convention center (Moscone), awaiting the beginnings of the Fall 2006 Intel Developer Forum. What can you expect here? Two words: quad core. Yep, its going to be every where; in fact I already saw it last night and a pre-IDF press meeting. There they showed off a Kentsfield core processor and a new quad-threaded gaming engine created by Futuremark call "Ice Storm Fighters". Hopefully they come
