Samsung launches a new mobile TV phone (SGH-P930) to the Italian market this month through Telecom Italia. This newest mobile TV phone combines not only the latest mobile TV technology, but it also combines HSDPA technology which enables high-speed data transmission.
The P930 has wide 2.3 inch (240x320) LCD and supports Picture in Picture (PIP) function to watch two TV channels simultaneously. It adopts a 2-megapixel camera and a VGA camera for convenient video telephony. It also supports a microSD external memory slot for better storage.
OCZ Technology Group unveiled the OCZ PC2-9200 FlexXLC 2x1GB Kit, a new memory solution that is claimed to offer improved speed, signal integrity, and thermal management. These new modules feature the new OCZ FlexXLC heatsink with a hybrid copper and aluminum design alterable between passive air or water cooling.
With OCZ’s FlexXLC (Xtreme Liquid Convention) heat management solution the OCZ PC2-9200 operates at speeds of 1150MHz without the high temperatures that inhibit or damage the module’s ICs. The FlexXLC module was engineered with a "flexible" design which gives enthusiasts the option to run the modules passively or water cooled via the integrated liquid injection system. The concurrent use of both technologies (water-cooling) promotes maximum heat dissipation.

VIA Technologies today announced support for the advanced SPI bus in all new VIA South Bridge chipsets.
The SPI bus is an advanced I/O bus that makes the support of system BIOS simpler and more cost effective through an onboard BIOS programming module. The implementation of SPI on VIA-based boards will enable easier updating, debugging and reprogramming of BIOS, and at lower cost, by attaching a flash programming module, such as those from DediProg, to the easy-to-use onboard connector, even when the computing device is powered down.
VIA will integrate SPI bus support into new VIA chipset product releases to support all leading processor platforms, commencing with the upcoming VIA VT8237S chipset South Bridge, which is sampling now.
