College gets 1GB/s speed demon Net hookup - In all, 16,000 computers, including machines in every dorm room, will be linked over the coming year to a fiber-optic network that delivers data at up to one gigabit per second. That is about a thousand times faster than the typical home broadband connection -- so fast that the research university's computer experts still do not know exactly what they will do with so much capacity.

AMD Answers the 64-Bit Question - AMD, on the other hand, has a 64-bit chip called Opteron, due early next year, and it will be completely backwards compatible with the Athlon line, which is x86-compatible to begin with. Opteron will be in servers, desktops and laptops. The panel, which included an AMD engineer, felt this was the way to go. "You wouldn't buy a DVD player that wouldn't play your CDs, would you?" said Jerry Huck, chief architect at Hewlett-Packard.

Microsoft's Canary phone - the first pics - It's based on Texas Instruments OMAP 720, weighs 95g and is a triband GSM/GPRS device. Delays in getting Microsoft's GPRS stack to stay up long enough to salute have contributed to delays in shipping Stinkers so far, as Microsoft itself has acknowledged. HTC claims the device allows 3 hours talktime or 100 hours of standby. There's USB and MMC support. The Canary boasts a 176x220 64,000 colour display.

The RocketRAID 404 is a great consumer level card for the price. It is a high quality, cost-effective solution for your mass storage needs. It's got a few extra features (hot spare, hot swap) that you don't get on your average controller, and 4 Channels are always handy.
