OK, given the choices right now there are two options for building a fast machine right now. Actually, not exactly right now, but if you can wait to January… h3. nForce 4 SLI (for January) If you want the maximum in performance, then you want the upcoming SLI boards.

a little ludwig goes a long way: The Exploding PC?. Another smart post by John. He’s right that you want to take the long term storage bank out of the PC. It happened with LANs long ago with SANs and NASes. I’ve been trying to get this to work reliably in my own house for […]

iPodlounge | All Things iPod | Ephpod. For me itunes is a mixed blessing. I actually like Musicmatch better because it has all the smart tagging and I use Exact Audio Copy for CD ripping. Its a nerd thing, but I love them. And, I really don’t like the way that if you make one […]
iPodlounge | All Things iPod | NuPower Battery. iPods are so expensive I’ve been thinking about getting a 2G from eBay. The problem is that battery life is a big issue and Apple charges $99 to get a new battery. A great solution is a third party batter the NuPower Super High Capacity by Newer […]
