"Fusion is either going to carry AMD through to the victory parade, or drag it through the streets for a pelting in the village stocks. The whole future of AMD's CPU division rests on GPGPU computing being catapulted into the mainstream. If this happens, the company's APUs can theoretically obliterate Intel's CPUs in GPU-accelerated apps, and thump Core i7 like AMD64 thumped Pentium 4. If it doesn't, however, then AMD's CPU future is going to look pretty bleak.

"Sony knows how - but not who - hacked into its PlayStation Network last month in possibly the biggest Internet security breach in history. And despite beefing up its system to prevent another cyberattack like the one that exposed the personal information of 100 million users, Sony can't guarantee that it won't happen again. In a letter sent this week to members of Congress, the Japanese tech giant said it boosted security measures through added firewalls, new policy changes and increased monitoring of its PlayStation and Qriocity systems.

"With all of the leaks about Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 that have been hitting the Internet over the weekend, Robert Bowling from Infinity Ward suggests that you wait for the official reveal in his Twitter feed.
According to his Twitter post, some of the leaked information is accurate and some is not. Recent publication of what was purported to be MW3’s full game plot made its way around; and even our own sources are claiming that it is not totally accurate from what they are hearing."
