Ironically enough, Microsoft Watch takes a look to Apple's next-gen OS, 'Panther'. NVIDIA today announced that the nForce3 Pro chipset is now in volume production. With this announcement following that of single-processor Opterons, it won't take long until enthusiasts start building machines using the 64-bit platform... even if it's kind of useless for the time being... Overture has announced new website partnerships in order to broaden its ad network using contextual adwords (similar to those Google's ads shown here @ TS). IBM debuted its own Itanium-based servers today although at the same time announced test results that put a machine using their own chips ahead of an Itanium server manufactured by Hewlett-Packard. Last but not least, a dispute is going on between Amdmb & Tom's HW websites after some 'misunderstanding' (or whatever you want to call it) during Million Man LAN 2003 last week.
