ExtremeTech has a review of the Microsoft Reclusa Gaming Keyboard.  I personally don’t think it’s the most fantastic keyboard ever, but it is pretty cool.  As a gaming keyboard, the Reclusa comes up a bit short compared with gaming keyboards that preceded it.

Terahertz Processors on their way?

I would love to get my hand on one of these, although it’s probably not going to be for quite a long time. It appears that scientists at the University of Rochester have come up with the design.
