Ballmer baulks at Oz Xbox chippers charter

Microsoft's efforts so far to obstruct Xbox mod chips have been relatively trivial, and simple for the modders to circumvent. The most recent redesign, for example, was dealt with inside a week.

Via has ultra small PC mobo – now, where do you put it?

Via Technologies was in town yesterday extolling the virtues of its Mini-ITX form factor boards, and showing a couple of designs that at least give you an idea of where a PC based on a board measuring 170x170mm might end up. The Mini-ITX now comes in fanless and fanned flavours, based on the Eden ESP processor core and the C3 E-Series respectively, and yes indeed you can install Windows XP on them and have an extremely small PC - but that, in our estimation, is not the point, and we don't think Via thinks that's the point either.
