Google has won their court battle regarding typos of their URL which take you to undesired websites.

"SAN FRANCISCO - An Internet arbitrator has awarded Google Inc. the rights to several Web site addresses that relied on typographical errors to exploit the online search engine's popularity so computer viruses and other malicious software could be unleashed on unsuspecting visitors."




For the Athlon 64 fans out there, ExtremeTech posts their findings of their recent Soccket 939 motherboard shootout.

"A few weeks ago, we took an in-depth look at ABIT's enthusiast-targeted Pentium 4 motherboard, the Fatal1ty AA8XE. It bears the name of professional gamer Jonathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel, one of the top players in the world. Specializing in shooters, he has won three CPL championships, each using a different game, and has placed highly in or won several other major gaming competitions. Now he is teaming up with several hardware vendors to bring the Fatal1ty brand to top-notch gaming gear."




For our Intel readers, this review of the Asus P5WD2 Premium should be right up your alley.

"In the midst of the SLI craze Intel launched two new chipsets with the 955X being its latest performance solution. Although we’ve already seen the Intel board, the Asus P5WD2 Premium is the first partner product to arrive in our labs and Asus hasn’t spared any expense making this one of the best 955X boards on the market."




I got a kick out of this and just had to share it with you guys. It was only a matter of time before someone did a spinoff of MTV's Pimp My Ride... for computers.

"Basically, our seasoned EPG team creates a work of art from the latest hardware, the hottest accessories and the coolest games on the market and customizes them to match each gamer's unique personality. There's no limit to what they might do. The only rule is that there are no rules."

LOL somebody posted the Extreme PC Garage thing in Off Topic a while back...omg that show is so stupid.

They plan to do shows like once every 3 months and all those guys sound like such n00bs...it's basically just a huge promo for XFX, Aerocool, Corsair and whatever other products they stuck in there.
