5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

If major computer manufacturers were surprised with the speed the Internet took off, they've also been astonished by the rise of Web sites, which often beat the thick monthlies stone cold on news and reviews. Press relations will never be the same again... Here's a daily report of what we've spotted since we last looked, 24 hours ago. If you're not in this roundup, it doesn't mean we're excluding you, and if you have information you think deserves a wider audience, please email us. AMD Zone reports that MicroStar's revised mobo supports the Athlon 700, a further confirmation of its closeness, as reported in The Register yesterday. It also says that Tyan's Dual Athlon board will support FireWire, and has onboard SCSI 3. Legacy support is minimal, and the dual boards may be Slot B, rather than Slot A. Over at AnandTech, there are more reports of the surfacing of the Athlon 700. It says that AMD will wait for Intel to go for CuMine before formally announcing the product. It will will also socket Athlons soon to compete with the Intel Celeron line. The site has an abstract from a report about Microsoft's X-Box which we reported last week. SharkyExtreme has a review of Skywell's Magic Theater Pro, a surround sound kit for the PC platform. It has also updated a report on 3dfx's texture compression technology. At JC's news, there is some information about the Pentium III "B" suffix we reported a few weeks ago. JC also mentions the Athlon 700 in passing and asks if anyone has called AMD for confirmation. Our information yesterday, however, is pukka -- the OEM does not want to drop himself in it by allowing us to publish his name... The estimable Kyle Bennett at HardOCP points to a Turkish site which has more pix of the up-and-coming Intel Camino i820 boards, this time from Asus. Kyle also reviews a Guillemot video card on his site. CPU Review on Monday reported that mobo prices for the Athlon are beginning to fall. William Henning also says he's gathered nearly 13,000 signatures for a petition he organised about Celeron SMP... ® If you've news for The Register, send mail here to be included in future roundups.
