First ExpressCard Product Released.

As a result many PC manufacturers will follow the trend and dump their PCMCIA support too, and the first product for this new port will be a Memory Card Reader from Buffalo, the MCR-4/EX card reader will handle MMC, SD and Memory stick Pro/Duo Memory cards. At a retail price of $26 it’s a good investment if you consider the higher transfer rate.

A Dual-Core FX-60 And The End Of Socket 939

This is due, in part, to the chip giant's new 65 nm process, which has helped to set a new performance threshold. However, Intel has only had a few days to bask in its glory: AMD's dual-core Athlon 64 X2 5200+, which is also AMD's last Socket 939 device, bests almost all of Intel's performance superlative claims, according to our benchmarks. The Athlon 64 FX-60 features include the integration of two processor cores into a single die, each of which has a 1 MB L2-cache, and a 2.6 GHz clock speed.

MacWorld: iPod Controlled by its own case

MacWorld: iPod Controlled by its own case

One of the nicest products so far I have found for my iPod would be this case that features 5 fabric buttons to control an iPod.

The downside of the story is that Eleksen’s (manufacturer) marked are OEM, so we will need to wait until one big brand start selling this cases under their name.
