xlr8yourmac.com has of course been posting all the time during my finals and in case you missed it, you might want to fly over the archive headlines over there quickly, just to make sure you didn't miss anything vital. They have a link to a Mac OS X vs. Win 2000 comparison at Cnet, btw.
More IBM revolutions
CNN notes that a new technology from IBM promises for even faster processors in the future. The new technology somehow "stretches" the silicon atoms, making the electrons flow up to 70% faster than before.

the register has it a bit les complicated.

MacObserver reports that TranIntl.com is selling new 48GB powerbook drives (2.5"). I don't know what the manufacturer is, but it might be IBM. I think they announced something a while back.

Slashdot notes that Intel has aparently successfully produced a few 0.02 micron transistors. Of course they're still far away from having functional processors with several million transistors, but the progress is visible.
IMG has a lot of stuff about games, among them a preview of Alice, an upcoming 3rd person action game based on the Quake 3 engine (hopefully working better than the current version of the original).
