We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).

I think Slashdot needs to implement a system in which readers/mods can vote for a post (or a few, perhaps include counter to the counter) to be attached to the original submission that provides vital info the original submission fails to include.
Too often, submissions that fail to include such vital info tend to render all subsequent discussions rather pointless (this may not be an example, but I'm sure you guys can think of plenty that are).

Many AMD motherboards with the SB710 southbridge have been able to do core unlocking for a while now; most SB710 boards from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI have this capability.
IIRC, AMD announced that the new chipsets (890 series) can no longer unlock, and that is when the manufacturers decided to do it on their own.
A bit of information I found interesting: "Tentative EPA methodology results show 25 kilowatt hours/100 miles electrical efficiency in city cycle". Maybe miles per kW will become the "MPG" for electric cars?
