While new technology is almost always a good thing, getting rid of old tech is not.  The parallel port still has not died, nor the 3.5″ floppy or the PS-2 port.  There are probably even ISA slot holdouts, I know for a fact that there are still AGP addicts.  The newest forced obsolescence is causing a lot of FUD, so to properly understand the new Cable TV standards drop by this thread.  It won’t help make your grandmother feel better about her old TV no longer receiving a signal, but it can help you figure out how to ensure you can pick up the right cable box to fix it. 

There is a new OpenGL benchmarking tool over at the Overclocking Forum, drop by and watch the fur fly.  Over in the Linux forum, a convert is looking for some games to play on his Linux box, while the Windows users are having some difficulty with AVG 8 and some WinXP updates.

As your final stop before heading out to enjoy a Friday night, take a quick peek at the Trading Post, see if there isn;t a nice present you can pick up for yourself.
