writes "Nvidia's first DirectX 11 offerings ran hot and offered a negligible performance difference compared to ATI's Radeon HD 5800 series for the cost. Also missing was the $200 mid-range part. But that stopped when Nvidia released the GTX 460 based on a modified version of their infamous Fermi architecture. The GTX 460 offers incredible performance for the price and soundly beats ATI's $200 offering the HD 5830."Link to Original Source

writes "It was 9 years ago this month that freewwweb, the largest and most popular free dial-up ISP shut down. What's happened since then? Anything truly innovative? Cheaper and far more widespread broadband?

So, has anything innovative really happened with Internet connections within the last 9 years?"
