LCD manufacturers have success lately.

Companies Benq, Amtran technology, Coretronics and Jean have lately very successfull time, because of LCDs are still more and more popular throught the world. They are manufacturing (and selling) more and more LCDs, and less of CRT monitors. Lets hope that they will soon sell LCDs which have parameters like normal monitor. (I dont love LCD, because of long latency, low contrast, bad brightness and limited angle of wiew. But now it seems that who wants to get good monitor have its last chance, and soon you cant buy anything else than LCD.)

Intel wants lower power consumption for processors

Intel wants to make processors which consume less power, that is already known for some time. They have to, because of power imput, (and so heating) of some current models are really very high, and there is big problem with coolign, but today they finaly announced how it will be. So, it will all start with new Conroe core baseed chips, which should be manufactured by technology 65nm. Conroe chips should contain two cores, with cache 2 and 4 megabytes (some people believes it means 2 or 4 megabytes for each core). Those processors wouldnt contain hyperthreading technology, and theri total power consumption should be about 35 watts for each core. And they should be compatible with current LGA775 socket. But when we will se first of them? Nobody knows.
