All I can say is cool. I like smaller, smaller is better.

Very interesting read, its a little old but I think it should be revived. He talks about some serious security topics. Some of the interesting arguments follow as: Antivirus programs are useless, patching is like polishing poop, etc. Read the article to understand.

ATI has made a new exciting technology called AVIVO. Basically, it is designed to have your CPU and GPU combine processing power to transcode videos to many formats. In the age where watching videos on your portable player, this is very exciting. Extremetech was able to get their hands on a beta and found that this made transcoding a video about 5x faster. That means, instead of 4 minutes, thats 1! Even better is when you take two hour long movies and transcode it to another format. What a boost. It will be interesting to see what NVIDIA comes out with to compete with this, but I'm buying an ATI card next if NVIDIA doesn't come out with a competetive feature.
