Loyal Argentinian reader Gerardo points us in the direction of a remarkable experiment at Tech Junkie, which applied 12,000 volts of power to a Voodoo 3 with spectacular results. There's even a little movie of the end result. Don't try this at home...

If all that was a little too exhausting, why don't you take a peek at the USB iBrator. Will Apple sue?

More seriously, over at Hexus Net you can find a pretty informative piece about modems.

At Overclockers Au, there's a review of the case called The Big Kahuna.

Lastly, but not leastly at all, we have to report that our favourite hardware site, Hardware Com has a plaintive note saying it has been acquired by Onvia.Com -- a business to business site. Sniff. ®
