The Roundup: Berlin Wall falls anniversary tech news deluge

Today's highlights include videos from AMD and Nvidia's recent keynotes.

Berlin wall falls

Today in 1989 East German officials opened up the gates in the Berlin Wall, marking the end of one of the most infamous symbols of the Cold War. Citizens flocked through the concrete constructed border from about 9pm, and after 11pm guards decided to not even bother with ID checks any more. Inspired by those events, here on Club386 there are no walls, and our gates are open to tech news and reviews browsers from all over the world, and even other planets or dimensions (as long as you are running Netscape Navigator 3.01 or newer).
