Mac Users Smarter Than PC Users? (This should cause some controversy starting with me since I am a non-mac user)- A recent survey from net statistic company Nielsen/NetRatings has shown that not only do Mac users tend to have a better education than PC users, but they also earn a higher salary, are more experienced on the web, and shop online more often.

Panic stations as DDR price soars - if you are planning on buying DDR memory you'd better get your skates on, as spot market watcher Marco Fumagalli tells us that 256MB sticks are likely to hit $60 on the spot market at the beginning of next week. Currently, and in the European market, such sticks are costing around $57, with these prices spot market rather than retail market prices.

PC prices are falling again - and the merger of Hewlett Packard (HP) and Compaq could push them down even further, according to researchers IDC. Moves towards Pentium 4, as well as increased memory and storage prices, pushed desktop and server prices back to mid-2001 levels in the first quarter of this year. But IDC said slow business in the last two months had forced vendors to be more aggressive, pushing prices down again.

Matrox Parhelia 128 MBytes Video Card Review - As compared with the previous products from Matrox, this is a super-revolution! It even makes no sense to give specs of the G400/450/550. But as compared with the current solutions from ATI (RADEON 8500) and NVIDIA (GeForce4 Ti) the Parhelia looks quite modest. Although 16 texture units place this chip on a higher level, our tests will show that almost no applications can work with the multitexturing mode of "4 pipelines X 4 texture units".
