Despite the fact that the Xb0x 360 was being released Tuesday morning, there was something slightly more exciting that I was looking forward to that day.
Play Chad Johnson of the Cincinnati Begals in Madden 2006.
I won a contest at the local Best Buy to play Chad Johnson during the Xbox 360 launch at the store.
Of course I couldn't let an oppurtunity like this pass me by without having a little fun...

Ever since Amdmb was launched way, way back in the year 2000 I have had the goal of growing the site into one of the top online tech media in the US. When I was prepping to graduate with my Bachelor's Degree in CS and start working on the website full time, PC Perspective was launched in order to provide the platform that I felt was needed for the site to succeed at the levels I envisioned.

Sorry it has been a while since I posted in here, I have just be swamped with work around here and the house for quite some time.

Rahul Sood, the founder of VoodooPC, has posted a blog entry on the lack of availability of CrossFire products. Even more interesting is the fact that even though his company is listed as a launch partner for CrossFire, they haven't even received samples yet.
When AMD, Intel, ATi, or NVIDIA launch something big, they always try to get companies like VoodooPC to test it ahead of time, offer feedback, and perhaps use it in our review systems.

Yesterday was the 4th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in history. Chances are even if you didn't remember it on your own you were reminded by the shows on TV and the flags at half mast. I ran into a suprisingly high amount of people over this weekend that seemed completely oblivious to what importance this date had for us.
Though I don't want to get into a political rant here, but I can remember on the first anniversary of 9/11/01 how the country had changed in the course of one year. In the months after 9/11 everyone was involved

As you might have been able to tell from my recent post enews showing the upcoming CrossFire motherboards from ECS, I was recently in attendence at the ECS Editor's Day in San Jose last week. ECS has always been one of the largest manufacturers of motherboards in the world, but they have not been known to be an enthusiast class motherboard maker.

Even though I wasn't able to make it out to this fall's Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, I was still able to get a hold of the same information being presented to those in attendance. Intel is introducing the world to a totally new micro-architecture that replace both the desktop NetBurst and mobile Banias architectures in the second half of 2006. This new architecture looks like it is taking the best from both of Intel's current architectures and melding them into one that will be more than competitive with AMD's K8
