Go! Why read about the return of Dogmeat, feral ghouls, supermutants without a leg to stand on and your birthday party? You would be much happier looking at the pictures.

Folding@Home is certain leading in innovation when it comes to distributed computing. The PS3 turned out to be a great platform to Fold on, and then they added support to allow R600 cards from ATI to Fold as well. There is now a beta version of the GPU2 client, the next generation in Folding on a GPU, which adds support for the newer cards and carries some optimizations as well. ExtremeTech was told that the newer HD 3870 X2 is capable of handling more parallel streams than there are atoms in

The mStation 2.1 Stereo Orb
is about the size and shape of a bowling ball, but is an iPod dock with integral 2.1 stereo sound. At Overclockers Online they were rather impressed by the quality of sound that it produced, as well as the inclusion of USB to allow the use of devices other than an iPod. On the negative side, like most other iPo

AT&T has, for some bizarre reason, created a web browser and called it Pogo. Pogo wants a 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, and a video card with at least 256MB of VRAM. Crysis only wants a C2D 2.0GHz or an Athlon 2800+, 1GB RAM and 256MB VRAM. So you have a browser that is almost as resource intense as Crysis, which is capable of crippling any machine going right now.

Ars Technica has two questions you should try to answer in your own mind before heading to read their full article on the supposed exaflood that should be choking the internet soon. The story that everyone should panic because the net won't be able to handle the flood of data is not new, the only thing that changes is the app that will supposedly cause it's downfall. Currently the predicted murder is video transfers over P2P software. There is straw involved with P2P, but is it th

Technology is bad for your mind; would you ever run into this hanging out with non-technical minds? Can you even begin to explain why it's so funny to someone who didn't get it right away? Is there any enthusiast that you know off that isn't able to explain their favorite processor to use when dabbling in the dark arts of overclocking, up to and including the difference between non-Black and Black Editions of Athlons, and who is

nVIDIA's CEO Jen-sun Huang came out gunning after Intel yesterday in an impassioned speech aimed at Intel's claims that rasterization is not scalable and that nVIDIA's future products will not be able to complete with Larrabee. That isn't all that was announced by nVIDIA, they have plans for a system on a chip as well as partnering with VIA to create a sub $45 platform to take on Intel's Atom processor. You can read a lot about what Jen-sun said at AnandTech and hear even more about it and our take on
