the register notes that the move from IPv4 to IPv6 might come sooner rather than later. The new IP standard will allow for 3.4 x10^36 addresses instead of just 4 billion.

XLR8 reduces prices
MacNN notes that XLR8 has lowered its CPU upgrade cards by as much as 120$ and has introduced a new G4 450 upgrade for "only" 1000$. The lowest end model is now a G3 333 instead of the G3 300.
USB 2.0 is coming
MacCentral notes that MicroTek has demonstrated the first USB 2.0 scanner in Tokyo. The new standard, developed by Intel, operates at 480Mbit, but is claimed to be slower than 400MBit FireWire still, due to it's different non-isochronic design.
3Dhardware claims that their page has been down because their ISP was using a "Malfunctional iMac" as theur server. That is either the most astounding ISP I have ever heard of, or the worst joke of 2000.
