  1. £6.2m worth of Pentium IV chips stolen

    The news article is here.

    Anybody need an extra Pentium III?
    Edit:
    they wrote Pentium IIII, I was obviously delirious and saw only III. Someone at the bbc must have skipped their Roman Numerals classes.

    Hehe....i m not saying you are crazy, conradguerrero, one thing i hate about some press is that they sometimes tend to give wrong information without getting clarifications. They sometimes just want to draw more people to read their papers.

    Having spent most of my adult life in a field that is widely reported on by the media I can assure you that the press seldom if ever gets it right.
