I will try to keep an history of all my previous machine on this page...yes it is just a nerd/geek behavior...

Instructions per second (IPS) is a measure of a computer's processor speed. Many reported IPS
values have represented "peak" execution rates on artificial instruction sequences with few branches,
whereas realistic workloads consist of a mix of instructions and even applications, some of which take
longer to execute than others. The performance of the memory hierarchy also greatly affects processor
performance, an issue barely considered in MIPS calculations. Because of these problems, researchers
created standardized tests such as SPECint to (maybe) measure the real effective performance in
commonly used applications, and raw IPS has fallen into disuse. [WikiPedia]
"Apple Inc. made their mark in the computer arena. They revolutionized
the music player industry, and now they're poised to take over the
phone market. What will Steve and the gang come up with next? or
this contest, you're required to sneak us into Apple's R&D facility
and show us what new products they are currently giving the patented
"Apple" look. iToaster? iFork? iBus? iPencil sharpener? You tell us.

Certainly the best deal on speaker at the moment...for less than 300 euro You have a great THX system. Be careful, do not try to bring the package at home without a car like me yesterday through the city of Zurich, the system set is quite heavy...27.5kg and huge...and heavy but did I already said it?
|A small security firm has made a portable computer that is capable of scanning
300 networks simultaneously. Dubbed the "Janus Project", the computer also has a
unique "Instant Off" switch that renders the captured data inaccessible.|
At first glance, the Janus computer looks like a ladtop , but Williams said it is much more powerful than that. Inside the rugged yellow case sits a mini-computer motherboard powered by a 1.5 GHz VIA C7 processor and an Acer 17" LCD screen. Ubuntu 6.0 Linux runs the eight Atheros a/b/g Gold mini-PCI cards which continuously scan wireless networks. [....]
In addition to scanning for wireless traffic, Williams says the computer can break most WEP keys very quickly by focusing all eight wireless cards on the access point. Using a combination of common utilities like airreplay, airdump and aircrack, Willams said, "When I use all 8 radios to focus in on a single access point, [the WEP key] lasts less than five minutes." However, he added that some retail wireless access points will "just die" after being hit with so much traffic... read more here
