08/23/2003 - University of Kentucky Supercomputer Breaks The $100 Per GFLOPS Barrier - Researchers at the University of Kentucky have constructed and demonstrated an innovative new, scalable, parallel supercomputer that achieves application performance of more than 1 billion floating point operations per second (GFLOPS) for every $100 spent on building the machine.

08/12/2003 - NVIDIA on a mission to upset the enthusiast community? - Kyle Bennett of [H]ard|OCP is not too happy with nVidia these days. "NVIDIA has broken a sacred trust between themselves and the community and unless they get their issues together very quickly and address them, I have a feeling that many more of you will not be buying their products." Ouch! You can read the entire editorial here. - jonnyGURU

07/19/2003 - AOL lay off 50 Netscape developers. - The news is here. AOL has decided to lay off a number of Netscape software developers. This could mean bad things for future versions of the Netscape browser. For the diehard Netscape user there's always Mozilla. Of course, what is Netscape but a Mozilla browser with a bunch of plug ins like a pop up killer, spam filter, AIM/ICQ client, etc? That's the reason I use Netscape! It's not just because I hate Microsoft. - jonnyGURU

07/09/2003 - Biostar M7SUA to be called M7VKQ-Pro in the US. - In an effort to confuse the American public, Biostar's newest Socket A board for the budget minded consumer will be called the M7VKQ-Pro in the United States while it is referred to as the M7SUA in other parts of the world. This was done because of the model name recognition the now defunct M7VKQ had in the United States as being a reliable, yet inexpensive, motherboard. The confusion sets in once Joe Q. Enduser realizes that the M7VKQ-Pro has an SiS chipset and uses DDR where the older M7VKQ had a VIA chipset and used SDRAM. - jonnyGURU

07/08/2003 - AOpen AK79G Review - I had seen AOpen's motherboards with tube amplified sound on board at last year's Comdex, but never got the chance to play with one. I guess this review over at Sudhian will have to suffice. Since I'm having you folks look at reviews this morning, why not click on over to [H]ard|OCP where they are looking at a few affordable video cards. - jonnyGURU

The Department of Homeland Security warned companies of a contest planned for Sunday that was supposed to deface 6,000 websites in approximately 6 hours.
