James Bond Gadgets 157

whencanistop writes "Given that the new James Bond film is just about to be released, this is quite a nice summary of James Bond gadgets from past films. Tomorrow Never Dies was on telly last night and I was commenting on how the mobile phone that controlled the BMW was awesome, why they haven't done it in real life is beyond me (although there would probably be a few accidents if they ever did). Ridiculous to think that in 1963 the gadget of choice for Bond was a pager though." Of course, the best gadget in the Bond universe wasn't even 007's ... Jaws' teeth were the envy of every kid with braces.

Submission + - Build your own quad-core PC for less than $1,500

PizzaJoe writes: Want to build a powerful quad-core system for less than $1,500? Want a system that scores 5.3 on the Windows Experience Index without tweaks (with scope for hitting much closer to the magic 5.9)? Hardware 2.0 shows you how:

Four cores, each running at 2.4GHz, 8MB of L2 cache, blistering speed ... what more is there to say?! Sure, I could have spent more money and got a faster processor, but it wouldn't have been all that cost effective.

At the heart of this project is a Q6600 processor and an ASUS Striker Extreme motherboard. Complete parts list available here.
