AMD PICs At Radio Shack:

Remember those uber-cheap “personal internet communicators” that AMD came out with recently? You’ll be able to get them at Radio Shack starting this Sunday. While you aren’t going to be playing DOOM 3 on these babies, they will be great for anyone just looking to get on the net.

Sunnyvale-based AMD originally conceived the device last year for low-income consumers in developing countries as part of an effort it calls ``50x15.'' AMD Chief Executive Hector Ruiz wants more than half of the world's population using computers by 2015.

P2P Users Are Cheats & Thieves:

According to a survey sponsored by the RIAA, people who illegally download music are also thieves and cheats. Did we need a “study” to tell us what the RIAA thinks of P2P users?

Nearly 27 per cent of younger people surveyed said they would consider cheating on a test or exam, compared with 10 per cent of the general population. Of those asked, 6 per cent of younger Canadians said they would leave a store without paying for a piece of clothing, compared with 2 per cent of the population at large.
