Computer Customer Ratings

Nice look at a comparision of customer ratings. Sure it's showing how Apple is magical and kicks everyone's ass, but looking at the chart as a whole, it's a decent resource (well, take the one image for what you will) if you're looking for a new computer.

Amazing Dogfight Demo From nVidia

InstinctTech DogFighter CudaDemo is a great look at the latest in GPU and video card technology, with the ability to have 4000+ planes (plus hit detection and flocking behaviors) on screen at the same time. Lies, damn lies and tech demos and all that, still pretty impressive though!

How to Build a Hackintosh with Snow Leopard, Start to Finish

Awesome article at LifeHacker on How to Build a Hackintosh with Snow Leopard, Start to Finish, including hardware, partitioning, etc etc. Might be time to upgrade for a bit less than Apple charges for their insane hardware :)

The only danger of course, is some random update somewhere down the road will render your nice $800 Hackintosh rig a brick. Course, at that point you can just install Windows 7 on it!
