Interesting Links Today - 2006-09-13

The next Subaru WRX comes with an improved front end and impressive horsepower, 330hp! That is going to make that little sedan MOVE. Good riddance to the failed Subaru duck nose grills.

Ford is continuing its Way Forward restructuring program. The only step taken so far that will make a real difference is giving Bill Ford the boot. Now comes word of an upcoming change in pricing strategy. Another move with little effect. If you want people to buy your products, get part suppliers with higher quality parts, deliver innovative designs, and back it all up with a beefed up warranty, powertrain AND bumper to bumper. Between the last two American owned auto makers, GM is doing the better job in recovering.

ECS, the manufacturer of low cost motherboards, will be making boards for Intel. My how things have changed. ECS was known for low grade, always crashing, cheap motherboards. Now, they have moved on up to be a supplier for Intel.

Speaking of Intel. It's nice to see the emperor has found its new groove after being spanked by AMD for so long. The Core 2 Duos are a very impressive set of CPUs. Extreme Tech does a complete analysis of the Core 2 Duo vs. AMD AM2s.

If you haven't been keeping up with the high def DVD wars, it looks like HD DVD is pulling ahead. The DVD Wars had HD DVD winning in all categories on 09-12-06. It's making progress over Blu-Ray. Sony's recent announcement of supply problems with the PS3 isn't going to help blu-ray's cause.
