Normally I would look past headlines like this without a pause, but with the recent purchase of ATI by AMD, I no longer think these people are completely nuts. And the AMD/ATI rumor started in a fashion VERY similar to this...remember our post just towards the end of May from a Forbes analyst?

Gone are the days of listening to your radio late into the night to record your favorite DJs onto a cassette tape. Thanks to the rise of XM Radio, the first part is coming back, but you can't easily tape the feed. Digital Trends has a look at Pioneer's Inno, a device deisgned to replace that old tape deck with something a little more modern and satellite radio friendly.

Just because it's odd, doesn't mean you can't find one for sale. Sysgration melded a Skype phone and mouse in some sort of bizarre experiment, and now you can buy one of your own. CoolTechZone seems as confused as I, but someone, somewhere must have a use for this little USB device.

The Inquirer links to a story on ZDNet, which claim that the Java flaw discovered in Firefox makes the entire browser irreparably insecure. Firefox's Window Snyder beleives that that reaction is FUD, and that a patch can remove the Java vulnerability. Either way, I'd suggest avoiding strange Java for a bit.

Having once been AMDMB, a lot of the members of PC Perspective feel a little protective of AMD, which has lead to speculation on what AMDs response to the Core 2 Duo. In the mean time, Meridian is trying to even out the score by showing everyone "nauseating detail over the overclocking of my new AM2 rig".
