The other day I was struck with depression when I realized it was too cold to drive around with the top down on my Miata. Convertibles seem to lose a little bit of magic when the wind isn't coursing through your hair. Indeed, winter is bearing down on us, which means less time outdoors and more time to spend with the family (unless you've been waiting all year to hit the slopes). OK, maybe it really means more time on the computer or brand new console - I'm loving the Playstation 2. Either way, you should still be sharing your experiences with the rest of us! If you are need of a technical hand or just want to talk about your latest car modification, SharkyForums.com is the place to be. Just like Nescafe, it brings you together!
Each week we take several of the most popular/insightful/controversial threads and present them to you for easy digestion. Feel free to add your own thoughts (subtract the profanity, please) and help us multiply the reader participation here at Sharky Extreme (and you thought math was tough…). We've added links on each spotlight page so you can easily add your own comments and contribute to the debate! If your repartee strikes us as useful, humorous, or otherwise entertaining, it stands the distinct possibility of being featured next week. Without further ado…

The Future Of The Mobile Market
Arcadian is at it again - this time looking at where the mobile market may be headed. As it stands, Intel is the dominant force, but we know there are several other manufacturers who'd like a piece of the pie. What do you think of NVIDIA's latest product announcement, the GeForce2 Go?
We saw in our recent Pentium 4 review that RDRAM achieves a significant boost in memory bandwidth, but is it for everybody? If you are still on the market for a Pentium 3, hold off on RDRAM. If it's a Pentium 4 you crave, well, there is only one option. Check out what others have to say about Rambus and their RIMMs.
HSR In Recent Voodoo5 BETA Driver?
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! This is fresh off the rumor mill, but it appears that 3dfx may have included some sort of Hidden Surface Removal in a recent BETA driver for the Voodoo5 that is boosting frame rates significantly. If you have a Voodoo5, give these drivers a try and tell us what you think!
ADSL - DSL - SDSL - Cable
Are you still in the dark regarding broadband connectivity? Let a couple of our more versed forum members explain it for you!
3dfx's "Phantom" Details Leaked?
Has 3dfx mistakenly let some word of their next-generation video card out? Although there aren't yet any comments on this one, it would be interesting to hear what you all think of a possible next-gen part from the once-mighty 3dfx. Will they return to power in the 3D market? Only time will tell…
Question About Schooling And Your Job
Are you glad that you finished school? How does your degree correlate with your current job? If you have any advice for those who are still in school, or on temporary hiatus (like me), feel free to post here!
