Since May 27th I have not been in my town or residence for more than 18 hours at a time. And that has only been twice since the 27th. Right now, after returning from a trip to SFO, I am getting ready to head out once again to take care of some family obligations for birthdays and graduations yet again. It is really becoming a drain trying to do all the work I usually do at home on a notebook computer, without easy access to all the references and information I need. And it doesn't show any signs of letting up really as some important launches are coming up this month

Quietly cooling todays CPU's often means a huge heatsink and a 120mm fan. How about a heatsink from Thermaltake that the reviewer at futurelooks summed up as "B
igger than a Mac Mini". If that's too much metal for you, consider the 2 multifunction display panels, including one that knows when you've got mail.
'Good heatsinks are a little hard to come by these days as CPUs get hotter and hotter.

I just finished posting my Computex 2005 coverage from the driver's seat of a car headed towards Columbus, Ohio. Man, you have to love wireless data services. ;) In any event, you should give the article a read over and you might some interesting things being shown. My personal favorite is the Gigabyte iRAM which uses standard DDR memory to make a solid state storage device that is much faster than other storage options. There are some drawback of course, but we'll learn more about it very soon.

This is really a blow to the stomach for AMD with Steve Jobs officially announcing that they are going to Intel for their Mac line of computers. So many times we thought we had seen AMD nearly sign up with Apple for this exact deal, but it would seem that AMD's smaller fab capabilities are holding it back yet again.
One interesting point though is that with the Intel chips in Macs, that means an official x86 version of Mac OS X should be released soon, so maybe AMD users that build their own systems can still get the Mac experience if they wish to?

Pistons, pyramids or snail? Virtual-Hideout has a look at some interesting new form factors and case shapes from Computex. If those are a little too wierd for you, perhaps a more vanilla case, or some good old case mods will be more to your taste.
"Whenever a new form factor comes out, it means a new opportunity. We saw several new form factor designs on the show floor of Computex 2005 May 31-June 4.
