The Showdown: Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD

Both Blu-Ray and HD-DVD discs enable HDTV reproduction because of their massive storage capacities. Using dual-layer techniques, HD-DVD can store as much as 30 gigabytes of data while a Blu-Ray disc can pack in a whopping 50 gigabytes. In the lab, techies already are working on several-layered discs that could allow more than 100 gigabytes of storage on one disc. That's enough for several HDTV movies, special features and compelling interactive content. Or a content provider could put more than 100 hours of standard-definition quality programming on one DVD. All 180 episodes of Seinfeld on one disc, anyone?

And i Thought MY Computer Was A Beast

If it's good enough for predicting hurricanes, it'll probably do a pretty slick job running "Doom III."

That's the thinking behind a new line of PCs from specialist VoodooPC, which has adopted liquid-cooling techniques typically reserved for supercomputers and thrill-seeking hobbyists.

The Calgary, Alberta-based company has offered several liquid-cooled systems over the past year, but the new Rage f:5 ups the ante by using two Nvidia graphics cards incorporating the company's Scalable Link Interface (SLI) technology.

As a result, hard-core gamers can run PC games twice as fast as before, without worrying about their PC achieving vertical liftoff from all the high-speed fans typically required to cool such a rig.

OMG Sims Interactive TV Show?!?!

Well this might just be the stupidest thing that i have ever heard of....

Electronic Arts, the world's biggest video game publisher, is considering an interactive TV show that would let viewers control the actions of the characters as in its popular game "The Sims."

"One idea could be that you're controlling a family, telling them when to go to the kitchen and when to go to the bedroom, and with this mechanism you have gamers all over the world 'playing the show'," said Jan Bolz, vice president of marketing and sales for EA Europe.

The proposed show, which might involve viewers voting on possible actions, is still in the early stages, but EA confirmed it is in talks with several TV production companies. Bolz declined to disclose any additional details.
