Big Price Drops on NVIDIA Cards Coming

Word on the street is that NVIDIA is changing UMAP pricing on the GTX 460 1GB and the GTX 470 for the better, from the consumers perspective anyway. Expect to see some fairly big price drops in the next couple of days that will bring both the cards down to previously unheard of prices. The drops on the GTX 470 will turn it into what will likely be a very well received enthusiast "sweetspot" card. The 460 looks like it will likely not fare so well on the "value meter" after Friday morning though and just how far it will fall from greatness will certainly be balanced out with how low its price goes. Bottom Line: The GTX 460 1GB and 470 are going to be getting cheap this week.

Lian Li Mini Q PC-V354 on techspot

Steve has got his hands on some Lian Li anodized aluminum goodness

"The biggest problem we have with gaming computers is their sheer mass, but Lian Li's subtle design makes it a breeze to move. Fully loaded, the Mini Q PC-V354 weighs just 9.7kg, which includes a pair of 3.5" hard drives and the Radeon HD 5970. To accomplish such a small footprint, the Mini Q PC-V354 is extremely well thought-out. Most compact cases are a nightmare to work with, but we found this product to be headache free."

Google Has A Secret Fleet Of Automated Cars

I know you all want the upgrade kit for your car!

At the TechCrunch Disrupt event a couple weeks ago in San Francisco, Google CEO Eric Schmidt took the stage to give an impressive speech across a wide range of topics. But the most interesting thing he had to say what about automobiles. “It’s a bug that cars were invented before computers,” he said. “Your car should drive itself. It just makes sense.”

As they’ve revealed on their blog, Google has developed a technology for cars to drive themselves. And they haven’t done it on a computer, or in some controlled lab, they’ve been out on California roads testing this out. “Our automated cars, manned by trained operators, just drove from our Mountain View campus to our Santa Monica office and on to Hollywood Boulevard. They’ve driven down Lombard Street, crossed the Golden Gate bridge, navigated the Pacific Coast Highway, and even made it all the way around Lake Tahoe. All in all, our self-driving cars have logged over 140,000 miles. We think this is a first in robotics research,” Google engineer Sebastian Thrun (the brainchild of the project who also heads the Stanford AI lab and co-invented Street View as well) writes.
