Intel Squashes Centrino Bug
Intel said yesterday that it has turned off software in its family of mobile processors that could cause some Centrino-powered notebooks to crash when used with a virtual private network under the Windows or Windows XP operating system. Intel spokesman Daniel Francisco said the chip maker had determined that the problem occurs when VPNs are used with the adaptive-switching utility in its Centrino PROSet software. That utility allows users to maintain a connection when they switch from a wired network connection to a wireless LAN connection.

Zippy EL-610 Keyboard
As you can see next to a full size kb, the Zippy is a small keyboard. Being small, now you have more room in your work space for other things. It's also very slim. Less than an inch thick at the thickest part. And while it is very light, it feels well made and sturdy

OCZ Ultra 2 Thermal Paste
OCZ Ultra 2 is a high-quality polysynthetic thermal compound designed to provide maximum thermal transfer between the CPU surface and the heatsink. OCZ Ultra 2 uses a blend of polysynthetic oils that ensure that the compound will not solidify or lose its thermal transfer properties over time. Ultra 2 thermal compound is not electrically conductive, meaning that it is completely safe for use on any surface that requires maximum thermal transfer. Each 3 gram syringe contains enough OCZ Ultra 2 to properly cool twenty to thirty CPU's, depending on the surface area.

California Senate OKs antispam bill
The California State Senate approves a bill that would make it illegal to send unsolicited e-mail advertising and allows people to sue so-called spammers for $500 per unwanted message. If the bill, which now goes to the California Assembly, becomes law, it would be one of the strictest antispam measures in the country. Gov. Gray Davis has taken no position on the measure.
