Techbits

Greg
Techbits are a brain child of Greg Hess, who initially started them on the Discreet Forum, then moved them here to a permanent home; they are gathered, (chewed up) and processed by Greg Hess and Thomas Bruno, an all around good guys, hardware experts and 3DLuVr staff/contributing authors.

Organic Displays. I'm too awed to say much more.



In side note, Creative Labs Throws 400 people out the window in preperation
of closing their video card business.



Current Market Trends are stating if you want to buy a PC buy one now.
Everyone is killing each other to try and get the lowest prices just to
survive.



I mean when you can buy a Ghz Tbird for 125 USD its..its just rediculous. I
won't even get into the absurdly low ram prices. Somebody yesterday showed
me a deal for a 256 meg dimm for something like 40 USD???



And on that note and Black and White arriving any second via FedEx You guys
probably won't see me for a few days cause of that game. Unless it sucks.

Mac OsX news. Good news, Bad news, and Mac news.



On the funny but strange Mac Front. (Important if you have a mac or use a
mac somewhere)



"On Friday Apple released a Firmware update for their G4, iMac Slot-Load,
Powerbook G3 FireWire, and iBook computers. I'd link it here, but from what
I've been hearing, you really don't want to install it, unless you want to
lose access to any 3rd party RAM you've installed in your machine. "



DO NOT INSTALL FIRMWARE UPDATE. It invalidates your 3rd party ram. Thumbs
up to apple on that one.

Pay Money to have Windows XP Beta destroy/crash/annoy you and your system.



"Microsoft's Web site recommends a minimum 300MHz Pentium II processor and
128MB of RAM to run the Windows XP beta, up from a 133MHz processor and 64MB
of memory for Windows 2000. Although many PCs come with 128MB now, machines
sold a year ago, especially budget PCs, typically came with much less
memory. "



The Continued evolution of Faster Hardware for Slower Software. Sigh.

New Radeon WinME/98 Drivers (They sure like avoiding Win2k)
