Even bigger, cheaper hds
Just a day after 2 friends of mine bought new harddrives for their PCs (one is working, the other is not...), xlr8yourmac.com notes that Seagate now already has drives with 40GB per platter compared to 15 and 20GB being the norm at the moment. That means you can have more space for less space, if you get what I mean. Seagate is only offering up to 2 platter configs (80GB) thinking that there wasn't enough market for a 160GB drive (4 platters). Hmm, now I doubt that.
Revised AMD chips in the pipe
the register notes that AMD plans to release new chips that have a constant power draw and most likely also heat dissipation. The new "technology" is called SFF (Slim Form Factor). It's believed that these chips should help for integration into tighter or less cooled boxes...nobody knows but AMD.
What UI is better OS X or Win Xp?
the register dares talk about that topic indeed. The guy thinks the Windows XP UI is more innovative than Apple's, mainly because it features stuff like animated guides (as we know them from Office) and all that annoying crap. Well, I'm not very convinced by his arguments, maybe you'll be, check it out.
New Palm processor
the register notes that Motorola has released a new ARM based chip for Palm devices. The Dragonball MX1 includes Bluetooth technology and currently runs at 200MHz, which is a major speed boost up from 33MHz aparently.
Apple DVD Player 2.7
MacCentral reports that Apple has updated it's DVD Player software to version 2.7. It can be downloaded from their site, as always.
Peter Tamte's plans
IMG and others note that Peter Tamte has revealed teh name of his new company dedicated to bring more games to the Mac. Microsoft games will be published under the label called by the name "Bold". Certainly good news.
