Combo drive from Samsung has plenty of speed to burn Speed counts when you're burning a bunch of CD-Rs of holiday or special event pictures for family and friends. I've been moving at 16X for about two years - daunted by the price of faster CD-writing drives. But the time has come to upgrade and the Samsung SM-352 Combo Drive ($80) is an excellent investment if your computer needs a new burner to take the place of the old 8X or 16X burners that were state of the art shortly after the last millennium ended.

BEIJING - When former Chinese gymnastics champion Li Ning ascended on a high wire to the top of the Olympic stadium Friday to ignite the caldron, it was a magical finale to a dazzling opening ceremony. It was also a coup for his athletic-wear firm - especially considering Li Ning Co. isn't an official sponsor of the Games. The company chairman's stunt helped drive up Li Ning Co.'s stock 4 percent Monday - though it lost nearly 3 percent yesterday - and left rival businesses out in the cold.

If you're the sort of person who'd pay $25,000 for a car and another $40,000 for the windshield, the computer display industry is looking for you. At a time when you can get a high-quality PC for $1,000, companies are offering flashy flat-panel monitors costing well over twice that much. I've been tinkering with one -- the SyncMaster TFT700, a sleek 17-inch flat-panel unit from Samsung Electronics of South Korea, one of the leading makers of liquid crystal screens for laptop and desktop computers.

U.S. sprinter Justin Gatlin clocked 10.17 seconds Sunday in Tallinn, Estonia, to win his second consecutive 100-meter final since coming back from a four-year doping ban. Gatlin, the 2004 Olympic champion, was running at the Ergo World challenge meet as he works toward the 2012 London Olympics. Before Tuesday, when he also ran in Estonia, he had not raced competitively since June 2006 after being banned because of a positive test for testosterone. Gatlin, 28, regained his eligibility in July but was expected to have difficulty finding races because of a Euro Meetings recommendation not to invite athletes who bring disrepute to the sport.

Samsung MP3 player crams useful features into compact package Yepp, it's a voice recorder. Yepp, it's a phone number organizer. Samsung has packed a lot into this 3.25-by-2.75-inch MP3 music player. Setup for the Yepp -- we used the YP-E64 model as opposed to the YP-E32 model with less memory -- was a snap. Pop two AAA batteries (included) into the side pocket, hit the start button, and you're off. The MP3 player came downloaded with tunes that could be arranged in any order. Musical clarity was magnificent, and the player's functions were easy to control, thanks to a small volume knob and a seven-mode equalizer.

WASHINGTON -- Three executives of Samsung Electronics Co., which was fined $300 million for fixing the price of electronic chips used in cellular phones and computers, agreed to plead guilty to price-fixing charges and serve prison terms for their roles in the global conspiracy, the Justice Department said yesterday. The executives of the South Korean company, the world's largest chip maker, will plead guilty to participating in a scheme that included four other makers of dynamic random access memory, or DRAM, chips, the department said in Washington.
