Google Maps for PalmOS

When will the fun ever end? Google has released Google Maps for PalmOS. It's mainly geared for Treo users, but it works great on my Palm TX too. You can get directions, maps, satellite pictures, and even traffic in selected cities. Too cool. There are other versions available for other cellphones too. Just point your device's browser at Thanks Palm Infocenter.

Quake Map Source Release

John Romero has released the sources for the Quake 1 map set. Very cool. Now, I need to find an editor and take a look at Ziggurat Vertigo :-)

Since it's Quake 1's tenth anniversary this year (starting June 22nd) I thought I'd dig up and release all of Quake's original map sources. For all these years the only possible way to glean any information from Quake's internal format was from BSP deconstruction programs - but those had problems with tons of brushes generated from insane BSP splits. So finally, here are the originals with the dust blown off of them, shined-up and zipped up. Have fun, mappers!

Ars on Intel and AMD's Quad Cores

Ars Technica gives a quick take on the quad-core processors coming soon from Intel and AMD. A good chunk of that article will give most a Carmack-style headache. The good news is that you'll soon be able to have the equivalent of a four-CPU SMP setup in your box all in one package. I'll be interesting to see how the benchmarks turn out. This much is for sure: it'll get your geek testasterone level elevated in a big hurry.
