    Lian Li Announces the PC-9N Mid Tower Chassis

    Well I agree on that part with the "bright leds" maybe they should be a more discrete like macs have. but that's about it. Buy another brand if you don't like Lian-Li, some of us prefer minimalist elegant design rather than super featured gimmicky or overengineered cases. Also some of the...

    Multigigabit WiGig Wireless Docking Demoed at IDF 2012

    This is not meant to compete with normal range wireless protocols. Imagine a scenario where you have a mobile HDD, you place it on your desk and instead of needing to plug in the USB/eSATA/Thunderbolt. The fact that it wont penetrate the walls is actually a good thing, would you want...

    Workers Riot at Foxconn Chengdu iPhone/iPad Plant

    Am I the only one who wouldn't care the slightest if Apple jacked up the prices? I don't own a single device made by them, nor do I desire one to be honest.

    BioShock Infinite Delayed to 2013

    Games don't always have to go for realism. Ever played Psychonauts? That game is one of the best games ever made yet is completely cartoonish. It doesn't mater, realistic or fantasy it's all about the execution. And I'm an avid fan of realism in games!

    Office 15 Enters ‘Technical Preview’ Phase, Public Beta Planned for Summer

    Honestly I dont use the whole office suite, I could manage perfectly with open source alternatives. However I find Excel to be extremely well built and years ahead of the competition (payed or free). There's a HUGE leap forward from Excel 2007 to 2010. They really work hard to enhance...

    New Google+ Update Brings Circle, Pages, Photos and Notification Improvements

    Tell that to the friends that keep adding you there:laugh: I do the same thing, place friend's gmail addresses as placeholders even if they don't have accounts yet. When one posts something they can check the "Send notifier to friends that dont yet have g+ blah blah" that's what really annoys...

    The Witcher 2 Contains Secret Sauce To 'Catch 100% Of Pirates'

    I approve of this approach, fair retaliation against piracy.:) I always buy the games that I like, I pirate those that have no replay value. Still I approve of CDProjeckt's sneak attack presuming no additional info is being harvested/abused.

    NSS Labs Accuses Google of Undertaking Campaign to Knock Firefox Off The Market

    If that were hypothetically so Opera would have more users. If people cared about browser performance and all that. When Chrome launched it was all about "Google's new kid on the block" the name sold more than what was under the hood. Admit it people. Don't get me wrong, Chrome can be quite...

    There are few and far between the servers that can provide me with content as fast as using torrents can. My top speed downloading from a single server is around 6Mbyte/sec whilst by using a torrent client I can easily and frequently get up to 10,8Mbyte/sec (saturating a 100mbit fttb...
