    Internet. What's the point?

    From what I understood of the survey, it about "internet subscription" and "not access". About sizing the market for businesses. Since free internet dial-up does not require a subscription, I'll add it to the list above!

    IBM Improves CPU Cooling

    No-no! The IBM technique is the glue UNDER the heatspreader. Criss-cross on top of the heatspreadder is not as effective as lapping. Second, a knife will make scratches MUCH DEEPER than 10 micrometers. DONT DO IT!

    IBM Improves CPU Cooling

    No-no! Lapping is still good. What they are talking about it the "glue" that goes between the silicon surface and the heatspreader, ie. the surface UNDER the metal cap you see on the CPU. This is a key quote from IBM: Lapping the metal cap (top) and the heatsink (bottom) is still a good idea.

    The Physx COULD IN THEORY take load off the CPU. But the few games that are coding for it, make the Physx code completely optional... and as ktr said, the developers are using it for graphics enchantments only. ;P The problem with using the Physx with core routines, is that it gets complex to...

    Note that unless you have a pro network card, a 1GB connection will use more CPU. BUT... if more than 1 PC on the network, there is less congestion.
