The details I really want are on the rumoured inclusion of GPS in the new iPod Touch. Now that would be one sweet PDA, if only Apple would get the copy/paste and syncing of notes and todos sorted out.

My VideoPC that is being retired was built in a Coolermaster CM stacker, a huge beast of an enclosure that could probably handle any build you could think of.

There’s no shortage of black optical drives now, unlike when I first got the case around three years ago. A Tagan 700w PSU provides the juice, probably a bit overkill for the hackintosh but it did the job for two xeons and four hard drives in its previous life. I have used two Tagan PSU’s, both solid and reliable. Again this is an example of sticking to what is proven. Read more…
