    and I had no idea that,
    IBM is likely to modify its most advanced "G5" PowerPC silicon, which is being used in Apple Computer's fastest Macintosh desktops, for the embedded market, reducing the cache and cutting power consumption, Doherty said.

    So we all hoot an holler that the G5 is fast and it's a company that mainly makes x86 based stuff, when the whole time I just figured it was motorola behind the G5

    I hate X-Box all it is, is a machine for eye candy, that is all. The remote sucks ass, the first one was too big, the small one, the buttons are too close together. Then 6 buttons for your thumb, WTF. It is about 2 times as big as a Playstation 2, and it is Microsoft, I hate it.

    Well, that is your opinion. The thing about Sony is, they make quality products unlike Microsoft. X-Box and PS2, are just like cars. X-BOX is a domestic piece of shit, that will break down, and is slow, but is nice to look at. PS2, isn't as big, smaller computer, somewhat compact, because you can stand it on its side, and it is an import, they will last forever. Also, most of the people who develop for X-BOX are Japanese company's, not American. So, once again Imports rule.

    :bs: so what does ps2 have thats a standout that isn't on another system? and what about 4 player? you need extra stuff for that.

    ps2= rushed product. thats why it has such a limited memory. xbox owns, period.
