A Case of the Modified (Computer) Cases
The Commodore 64 got a makeover, and by "makeover" we mean "reboot." Set to come out on June 1, the Phoenix model from Commodore USA will support a variety of Intel processors, a DVD player, up to 4GB of memory, and 500GB of hard drive space all crammed in the space the size of a keyboard. Will the former glory of the Commodore 64 translate into strong sales for the commodore Phoenix? We'll find out in the next few months.

The Case Mod That Will (Try to) Kill You: Why not build a case for your LAN party rig that looks like Kratos from God of War? While the bloodied sword looks a tad scary, you can't deny all the hard work and design that went into developing such a detailed PC case.

Also from the gaming world we present this working, Turing-complete digital computer inside of Dwarf Fortress. Though not a physical manifestation, the in-game computer took 35 game-years to build and includes thousands of pumps, logs, doors, and other components. It's not known how the dwarfs feel about living inside a working computer, as they could not be reached for comment at the time of writing.
