    Best way to buy DVDs

    Impressive! You can buy Video DVD from one site and get the best price. But, the really kewl thing is that the DVDsearch site is able to balance options like the shipping price and the optimization allowed by buying some of the DVDs from one source and the others from another. Just let it tell you the best mix!

    AMD has been able to
    out-sell Intel in the US

    AMD just did an impressive step in its fight against Intel. According to English magazine PC Plus, AMD out-sold (in January in the US market) Intel (43.9% of all PC sales vs. 40.3% to the Santa Clara giant). With the Pentium III / K6-III fight starting well for them, AMD could do well this year.

    Boycott the Big Brother
    from Santa Clara, CA

    With the Electronic Privacy Information Center, JunkBusters and Privacy International, I support the call for a boycott of Intel Pentium III processors, because they represent a significant risk for our private lives on the Internet. For details go and see BigBrotherInside.com.

    Looking for a good search engine?

    Apparently, each month I add a new search engine tyo my collection. Today, it's Google that can sort results according to the number of links that point to the selected pages. HotBot also incorporates this technology. Thx to Franck for reminding me this.
