A pre-alpha (or something like that) of doom 3 was leaked looong ago, I think well over a year before the HL2 debacle.

...that was pointless. Let's start speculating what this means in terms of release date, if this is just a cheap way to try and steal hype from other games, how HL2 will be better and fight over wether Carmack should have deity status or not.

also, http://www.anandtech.com are reviewing the 5700 Ultra. But, as always, Blue doesn't link that site.

AnandTech has, as always, also a review of the new ATI card. Since it's a damn fine tech review site I will continue my semingly eternal crusade to make Blue link their articles too:

I still don't know why blues news never links to AnandTech. Are you guys enemies? Or is it just by accident? Anyway, I've been looking for reviews of Plextors new 708A DVD+/-R/RW for a long time and now anandtech has it:

Michael Moore is a political entertainer. That does *not* mean that he should never be taken seriously, but he is far from unbiased (and I think everyone knows that, no matter what camp you're with on this) and that means he is no journalist. Calling Bowling For Columbine a documentary is really stretching the definition of the word. But again, that doesn't mean it should be ignored or discarded as lies and propaganda. It just means you should watch it with a criticizing mindset, just as with any other media claiming to be telling the truth.

All that being said, I like Michael Moore. He's not likely to become a diplomat any time soon, but he has shown to me and a lot of other europeans (I'm from Sweden) that the stereotype of a gun-toting, right-wing, ultra-capitalist and highly religious american population is not true. His image of america is not the truth and nor is anyone elses, but he helps balance the picture. And thats what I appreciate about him.

The pop groups are swedish, not russian. If they were russian the pictures would have cyrillic writing anyway.

Not like anyone cares, but those are bands playing a form of dance music, something that was huge in sweden (and norway), especially on the countryside, from the early sixties to the eighties. It's still big, but in decline. The music sounds like really, really cheesy country music with matching lyrics. Quite possibly even worse than they look, except for that fifth band that between themselves seems to have less chromosomes than a carrot.

Is there a reason that anandtech.com _never_ gets mentioned in hardware reviews or tech bits here on Blue's? Some sort of rivalry going on? I personally feel anandtech is THE tech review site, so I don't think it would have to do with quality... Conspiracies ahoy!

From reading the article it appears that it's nothing more than an allergic reaction. You'd be amazed how many people have problems with peanuts, for example. Do CSPI think peanuts should be banned too?

All variants of Quorn I've seen here in Sweden contains egg, which I'm allergic to. Thus I haven't tried it myself, but pretty much all my friends are either vegetarians or vegans and the amount of meat substitute and various fungi and soy products we've tried between us is rather enormous now. I have only had a reaction to a single one and that was because they had forgotten to list egg as an ingredient. I don't think any of my friends have ever had a problem of this kind.

The statement that some study showed "nearly 10 percent of people who ate Quorn reported feeling nauseated or sick" is to be taken with a fairly large grain of salt, methinks. CSPI seems to be waging a war on quorn for some unknown reason. Are they by any chance sponsored by someone with connections to the meat industry? I know that happened once here in Sweden, pretty much the same scenario.

And I can't believe I wrote all this in a comment thread on a gaming news site. I need a life.
