A new computer meme

We saw a bit of this type of behaviour last week, spurned on by a certain German hurler, and it has spawned a popular new way to interface with your PC. BCCHardware had some fun working over a few old systems they had lying around, and a BBQ too. Check out the video on their site.
Shoot 'em up indeed.
"We took a little break from the regular run-of-the-mill hardware reviews and had a little shootout on the weekend.
We put a IBM Duron 650 up against a custom-built Pentium 4 machine and threw a couple of lower-end machine in for
good measure. Every machine used booted into Windows but was plagued with hardware problems such as leaky
capacitors, bad drives, chipped CPU cores.
Whatever, you're thinking - you should still check out the video. A good time was had by all, and we wrapped up with
a BBQ and some Wii Sports."
