A little-known Austin startup expects to make a big splash in the chip industry today when it unveils a new design technology that could transform the way extremely fast processor chips are created.

Maxtor has announced the release of the Ultra ATA/133 - the next generation of its hard drive interface.
Maxtor is calling the technology Fast Drives and says it boosts data transfer rates between the computer and the hard drive up to 133MBps - one-third faster than its Ultra ATA/100 technology.
Ultra ATA/133 is backward compatible with the existing ATA standard. PC users who want to upgrade from Ultra ATA/100 to Ultra ATA/133 will need to purchase a compliant adapter card or system motherboard along with the new hard drives.
Hardware insane projects and web sites like spud web server, gameboy xtreme overclock or guide to breaking your computer are being developed every day. They are odd, nonsensical and unique. But in the other hand, they are cool, interesting and guru-made (only sometimes). Why are we so interested on this kind of stuff? How could you distinguish fakes?
Futurelooks has an exclusive, up close and personal preview of the Nintendo Gamecube! We've held it, fondled it, played it, poked at it, and previewed all of the seven titles that will be launching with it this November. Sound tasty enough for you? Here's a clip:
A new ruggedised RISCOS computer, the Solo is intended for use within Third-world countries where its ultra-low-power design enables it to be used indefinitely away from sources of mains electricity. Solo is a transportable rather than a portable computer. It is designed for ease of relocation within harsh and demanding environments, and may be supplied in a variety of configurations and screen sizes.
