Submission + - Who still uses Smalltalk?

itsmeront writes: "There has been a lot of talk about the future of Smalltalk. There are number of Object Oriented Languages that are candidates for replacing Smalltalk. Why has Smalltalk lasted so long? Why do business software suppliers still choose Smalltalk? Who are the people that still bet on the future of Smalltalk and how do they manage to succeed. http://weeklysqueak.wordpress.com/2007/02/27/mindi ng-your-business-with-smalltalk-part-1-of-4/"

Submission + - New AMD Chipset Brings HDMI and ATI Graphics

Vigile writes: "Today AMD announced the new AMD 690 series of chipsets that feature integrated graphics based around the aging ATI Radeon X700 core architecture. It is the first AMD branded chipset in nearly 4 years and features some interesting features; one of which is the inclusion of integrated HDMI support. This should make for an interesting HTPC design though as PC Perspective reports, without support for decode acceleration of HD-DVD and Blu-ray, that HDMI is mostly just fluff. They also report that though the gaming performance is better than what NVIDIA's current 6150 chipset offers, it still doesn't impress as they'd hoped it would."

Submission + - Electrical charge helps re-grow body part

MattSparkes writes: "Tadpoles can regenerate their tails thanks to a technique that alters the electrical properties of their cells, a new study shows. The build-up of electrical charge at the site of amputation helps guide tissue regeneration. They speculate that doctors might one day be able to regenerate tissue in patients — such as those who have suffered spinal cord injury, or even those who have lost fingers — by altering the flow of positively charged molecules out of cells."
