Searched for Turbo Gameworks and only thing it came up was a scanned pdf. No disk images. I had it but my parents threw it away with other junk. Would love to have it back.

top IE9 Released, Media Has Opinions
I am not sure what is your glitch or why it is not fast for you.
I can say that Microsoft has really beaten the pants off Chrome with the release of IE9 as far as speed is concerned.
Its much faster for me than Chrome and now it has Ad blocking / tracking blocking, per site flash blocking, plays well with high DPI monitors among many other nice features.
I only wish they had made the 64-bit version faster too (but I can wait for the next release).

top GoogleTV, AppleTV and the Battle For The Living Room
I used Media Center to stream to my TV for quite some time before the novelty wore off.
MCE is great because you can stream any media (some with additional addins).
My TV watching hours have gone down to zero.
Nowadays I just use XBMC whenever I need the 10-foot experience.
top Slashdot is Dying, New York Times Confims It
This only means that Slashdot users are smart enough to prevent Woopra from tracking them.
I have been using Slashdot for over a decade and I check Slashdot very it regularly. I have seen several colleagues use Slashdot regularly but some deny that they do so!

The response the new layout has been
Gone are the two column layouts, the ability to personalize layout and the ability to delete unnecessary sections. Instead users are forced with single column layout with a fixed recent news box, local box and a bunch of news links on the right I don't care about.
With alternatives being equally abysmal, looks like readers are forced to live with the new update.

top The Man At Microsoft Charged With Destroying IE6
If IE9 is supposed to destroy the previous versions of IE then they better support IE9 on XP.
XP is still a solid operating system and currently has the highest market share.
No one is going to upgrade their OS just because there is a new browser from Microsoft.
top H.264 and VP8 Compared
The comparison seems to use sorenson squeeze (based on MainConcept if I am not mistaken).

Using x264 for comparison would be much fairer.
