From X-bit Labs:

At the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) 2011 Advanced Micro Devices plans to reveal additional details about its code-named Bulldozer micro-architecture as well as implementations of forthcoming microprocessors on its base. Apparently, AMD's next-gen chips will be capable of working at over 3.50GHz, which is a quite high-speed, considering the fact that the central processing units (CPUs) will have up to eight cores.

From Overclockers Online:

Every computer needs memory but more often than not we like to feature the products out of reach for most. Not all of us need or want to spend $200+ dollars on a kit that will guarantee DDR3-2500 speeds. Don’t get me wrong, if a kit were to float by my desk at no cost I’d jump all over it but in reality, times are tough and $200 is a lot to ask for. When it comes to quality budget kits, your choices aren’t as big as you’d think.

From Bit-tech.net:

Media streamers are fantastic pieces of kit. They allow you to send all of the TV and movies that you have stored on your PC or NAS box, straight over your home network onto the TV in your living room. While plugging a media streamer in is pretty straight forward though, configuring it to work together with your PC can be a bit tricky.

Zacate and Ontario are only the first two members of AMD's APU invasion, which will soon hit netbooks and notebooks as well. 
APU is two Bobcat cores and a DX11 GPU

Intel's Atom processor has long enjoyed a reign as undisputed king of entry-level netbooks and ultraportables.  AMD is at last prepared to challenge that position with its long-awaited "Fusion" processor.

The chips are done and in 2011 AMD plans on launching 4 processors:

From Ars Technica

Hard as it might be for Webheads to believe, a significant fraction of the US population doesn't use the Internet at home. In fact, 23 percent of all US households report that no one in the home uses the Internet anywhere. Why not? A detailed new study (PDF) from the Department of Commerce reminds us: many people don't see the need for this "Internet" thing at all.

From ArsTechnica

Whenever Intel attacks a new market, the chipmaker always starts small, sets expectations modestly, and feels its way along slowly. That's why everyone is taking today's very small, modest announcement that Intel will, for the first time, act as a foundry by selling a tiny sliver of fab capacity to another chipmaker, as a Big Deal. And it is a big deal—but maybe not in the way everyone thinks. First, let's take a look at the deal.

In a blog post that went up earlier today, Intel's Bill Kircos flagged an announcement by Achronix that the latter company would be making its field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) on Intel's upcoming 22nm process. Kircos was very careful to emphasize the small size of this deal:
