xlr8yourmac again has various bits, among them SoundBlaster feedback, a test of Formac's 12/10/31x CD-RW and a fix for Beige G3s wit DVD to enable sound under OS X.
the register has again stumbled upon some rumors concerning the upcoming G5 chip. The chip is expected to ship with 2GHz and up, according to their sources, but they seriously doubt it. What they seem to forget is that this speed has been speculated about for several years, doing a simple 1+1=2 calculation. The G5 is expected to ship with multiple cores on one chip. Thus 2x1GHz = 2GHz, and that is perfectly feasible. There are more details (ie. rumors) over there, but you can read that yourself.
More future visions
newsobserver has some news on news discoveries concerning the future of microprocessors. Aparently new technologies will allow for self-modifying (evolving) circuitry, which might in the end turn into some kind of true intelligence.
