Well, I was waiting down in the line for hte BYOC area to open most of the evening and about 10 minutes ago, I gave up and came back to the room to finish up an article and get some sleep. You can head on over to the Quakecon website to see when things FINALLY get around to moving! ;)
Introduction and VIA's Future

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.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Chris Morris a couple of times and I can tell that even though he works for the mainstream media, he knows his stuff. In this weeks edition of "Game Over" he discusses the implications of this year's E3 show.
The new consoles will get the lion's share of the spotlight, for obvious reasons. But software publishers have a few surprises up their sleeves that may shift the focus back to games by the time the show wraps up.
Craig Barrett's Keynote
The Intel Developer Forum is full of all kinds of great information on dual core processors and the chipsets that support them. Read our coverage of the first half of IDF Spring 2005.

Is it a bird? A plane? No, its AMD sticking its proverbial tongue out at Intel during IDF. Yes, this is indeed a picture of sky writing over San Francisco with the words "Turion 64 Mobility," though we couldn't get the entire phrase in our lense to capture. Who says AMD doesn't have a sense of humor?

I just got back from registering for this springs Intel Developer Forum and as usual they handed out a bag with some information in it for the press. After the short walk back to the hotel, I found two items of interest to me in the pack, which usually doesn't happen.
First up, Microsoft and Intel were partnering to hand out copies of the evaluation version of "Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 Edition:"
