xlr8yourmac.com has news on the Mac RADEON AGP release date (possibly Sept. 9), notes that Nvidia has sued 3Dfx for patent infringments on 5 patents they dug up somewhere. (It is obvious that this si just another attempt to strong-arm 3Dfx out of competition or even business, and does not add anything positive to Nvidia's already heavily tainted reputation. Welcome to the Microsoft of graphics chips manufacturers). Then there is an entry of a G4 Cube running Quake 3 in the Game FPS database, and the usual bunch of tips and fixes.

Shugashack has followed the movements quite closely. After reading all of this, your feelings towards nVidia will change, I'm pretty sure. To bad some just can't play fair and nice, even if they already think they rule the world.

The end of the worker bee
MacObserver notes that Apple has now identified the guy called "workerbee" who's been posting Apple trade secrets and rumors for quite a while over Yahoo and GeoCities.

Apples brute-force approach in legal questions during the last few years has not made them exactly sympathetic.
Rambus pulls the ...

MOSR: what you (I) missed
MOSR has been posting very interesting stories lately, mostly about Motorola and their CPU dilemma, some ex-motorola employees talking, and rumors of 1GHz G4es sampling in very small quantities and a lot more. Since MOSR usually stays brief, I recommend reading the past few days of news thouroughly.
