FarCry 2 already has two things going for it, no mutants and no aliens. The game really doesn't have anything to do with FarCry at all, apart from dropping you into a lush sandbox, giving you guns and a mission and then sitting back and letting you do whatever you want to complete the mission. It is a little early to tell, but the lack of mutants may help make the latter parts of the game actually fun, as opposed to the exercise in frustration that the last few levels of FarCry became. C

TuneCore is a rather interesting new way for up and coming musicians, and well established ones, can become their own record label so that people can hear their music. For $19.98 a year per album, plus one time fees of $0.99 per song on the album, and $0.99 for each music store that you want them to make it available on, your music is as easily accessible as any other band on iTunes. Check out how well it worked for Ars Technica.

The Tech Report had a very busy first day at Computex, they must have run the whole time to get as much done as they did.

While new technology is almost always a good thing, getting rid of old tech is not. The parallel port still has not died, nor the 3.5" floppy or the PS-2 port. There are probably even ISA slot holdouts, I know for a fact that there are still AGP addicts. The newest forced obsolescence is causing a lot of FUD, so to properly understand the new Cable TV standards drop by this thread. It won't help make your grandmother feel better about her old TV no longer receiving a signal, but it can help yo

bit-tech was shown some interesting little previews by MSI. You can see their planned new X58 chipset based motherboard and the Nehalem that will go into it, all 1366 pins of it. Hard information on this pair of next generation silicon from Intel is still rather rare, but the pictures do tell a lot.

The new Microsoft Zune is 80GB, giving you plenty of space for videos to watch on it's 3.2" screen. The large storage capacity and screen do make the Zune larger than the iCompetition, but not so much as to make it unattractive for many users. The Zune Pass is also a new way to get your music, you are essentially renting it as opposed to buying it outright. Drop by Digital Trends to see how well Microsoft managed with this new generation.

There are a lot of myths about hard drives that many have come to believe are facts. Have you ever heard someone say that to use a hard drive vertically, you have to format it in the vertical position? Those are just some of the myths that TechARP busts in their new article.

If the rumours at DigiTimes are true, the P45 models will be the last time you see Universal abit motherboards. This does raise the question of what abit will be selling if they do discontinue their motherboard line. Is it possible they will go back to making graphics cards, or is something else on the horizon for them?

You knew it would happen sooner or later. Having a half dozen universal remotes, each with 50 plus buttons just isn't enough to control a real multi-media system anymore. Every component will find some way to make you use their remote, all they need to do is ensure one function doesn't have a button. LogiTech has the answer, a full keyboard in a clamshell case. Check out this remote to end all others at Overclockers Club.

The sound card lets you adjust the virtual 7.1 surround sound that the headphones offer, as well as individual volumes and balances. OCIA were not impressed when they tried using it to listen to music, but when they tried gaming, their opinion
