Fujitsu has finally done it, they’ve caught up with Hitachi in releasing a 500GB notebook HDD. It has the 2.5” form factor and uses a mere 1.8 watts of power.
The lower power requirements make it greener than Hitachi’s offering. Chances are Fujitsu’s drive will be a bit cheaper than the Hitachi drive when it drops by the end of May this year.
So we all know that Apple hasn’t updated their precious MacBook Pro line in quite sometime, nor have they updated their MacBooks any time recently, so updates for both are likely on their way.

While things have certainly changed since the launch of the PS3, there is still one major complaint that people have about Sony's flagship console. The fact that the PS3 doesn't have an excessive amount of exclusive titles is brought up wherever fanboy arguments break out. For those of you sitting in the PS3 camp, you will likely be able to tell your 360-loving enemies that all future Grand Theft Auto titles will likely be exclusive to your favorite console.
Last year was a great year for gaming. Granted, there weren't any major console releases, but game sales were at their highest, and were probably one of the few things that saved the holiday shopping season from being a complete retail disaster. While you could pour over numbers all day long, the easiest way to tell that the industry as a whole is doing well is to simply look at all of the companies trying to purchase each other. Take-Two has been the latest one being sought after.
