If you're into gaming, then you've no doubt heard about the recent release of Microsoft's Xbox. Supposedly, it is twice as powerful as the PlayStation 2. This is according to Semiconductor Insights: "Compared to the PlayStation2, the Xbox houses a CPU (an Intel Pentium III) that runs at 600 MHz -- twice the speed of the Emotion Engine. Other notable features include 64 Mbytes of Samsung DDR SDRAM (4 x 128M devices), 6.4 GB/sec memory bandwidth, broadband internet access and a Seagate 10 Gbyte hard drive." Click here to read their entire press release.

Also, check out the new announcements from Microsoft, ArialPhone, Her Interactive, Fishtank Interactive, and Corel in News.
Your computer's hard drive is a major factor in determining how well your system performs. The hard drive type, specs, and interface all play a part in how fast your computer will run. Have you ever stopped to wonder how all of these aspects come into play? If so, then check out Storage Review's Hard Drive Reference. It will tell you almost everything you ever wanted to know about how hard drives work.

Also, check out the new announcements from Intel, Electronic Arts, Stardock, Sonic Solutions, Intuit, and Activision in News.
If you're wondering which version of Windows is the best, and which version you should be running, join the crowd. Many people are confused about whether or not they should upgrade to the latest/greatest, and which OS actually runs the best. If you're one of the many, then you might want to check out this comparison article published by The Tech Report, which compares the performance of WinXP vs. Win2000 vs. WinME.

Also, check out the recent announcements I've posted from Ricoh, Alera Technologies, AVerMedia, and TechSmith in News.
We all love cool electronic gadgets, right? You probably wouldn't be reading NewTechReview if you didn't. And if you're like me, you have to struggle to keep yourself from whipping out your wallet every time you pass the electronics section of your local shopping center. Well, be sure to hang on tight to that wallet of yours before you read CNET's Top 10 Must Have Gadgets article. They pick their 10 favorite, most desirable gadgets, from souped-up smart phones to superb DVD players. I thought you might like to see what they came up with.

Also, I've posted some announcements from Polaroid, Infogrames, and Activision in News.
Are you getting ready to purchase your next PC, but you're not sure which chip to go with, the Athlon XP or the Pentium 4? Well, then you need to check out this in-depth article over at Tom's Hardware Guide, which goes into great detail about comparisons between these CPUs.

And if you're wondering if your software will run on the new Windows XP OS, be sure to stop by the Windows XP Software Compatibility Site, where you can type in the name of an application and check its compatibility.

I've also posted some announcements from Visioneer, Activision, and THQ in News.

Windows XP has arrived. I should be getting my hands on a copy in the near future. In the meantime, have you decided whether or not you'll be upgrading? Well, to help you make your decision, I've rounded up a number of resources that I think you'll find useful. The first is a site called Cheaper Windows. This site is dedicated to searching the Net to find the cheapest Windows XP prices. Before you buy, you might want to check it out. Next, you'll want to take at look at CNET's Windows XP Superguide for all kinds of information, including a review of WinXP, tips and tricks, and more. Microsoft has also put together an official Windows XP site, although keep in mind that they probably won't be providing any unbiased opinions about their own product. :-) And finally, be sure to join Woody's Windows XP Watch for tips and tricks about the new OS by sending a blank e-mail to All those resources should provide you with enough information to help you make your Windows XP purchasing decisions.

Also, I've got some announcements for you from Click2learn, AIST, Jasc Software, and Activision in News.
The battle between Mac and PC users has been a long one. Each side believes their operating system is the best. Of course, with all of the marketing 'mistakes' made by Microsoft recently, they certainly aren't making many new friends. But that really has nothing to do with the quality of their OS. So CNET has decided to publish a feature pitting the new Mac OS X against the new Windows XP. Click here to read their article and see which OS wins. I thought you'd get a kick out of it.

I've also got some new announcements for you from Hewlett-Packard, ADS Technologies, Que, and Legacy Interactive in News.
