    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...

    uTorrent Goes Freemium: $24.95/Yr Option For Extra Features

    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...

    Thermaltake Announces Level 10 GT Snow Edition Professional eSports Chassis

    Yuck. Cheap plastic Buddha syndrome. Won't age well either, in 4-5 years all that white will be a disgusting beige. This doesn't hold a candle to the original VL30001N1Z. No big improvement over the VN10001W2N either. If you think the car from picture B has better aesthetics then you may...

    TRENDnet Now Shipping First Dual Band Router to Support 450 Mbps on Both Bands

    Meh, stopped recomending to my clients these OEM style routers 2 years ago. These days I build them myself using components from these guys mainly:http://www.mikrotik-store.eu/ You can buy a 2,4ghz and/or 5ghz extension if and only if you like, or other gizmos. Firmware based on linux ultra...

    Addonics Hard Drive Duplicator Lets Users Simultaneously Clone Up to 11 Drives

    This looks quite efficient, only useful for large companies so the price is not an issue imho.

    Xigmatek Introduces Elysium Big-Tower in ''9XL'' Format

    Looks better than most other materials used in pc cases and gives it a solid feel. Some don't bother with a exquisite case but for some it's supposed to be as elegant as any other piece of furniture in the room. Others are into cheap looking shiny cold cathode plastic things, race stripes, game...

    Xigmatek Introduces Elysium Big-Tower in ''9XL'' Format

    Except mine:cool: Nice case, but it looks like a mixed bag to me. It'd get a +1 point in elegance if they'd remove those useless ribits on the brushed aluminum. And another +1 from removing that ugly X from the top of the case, come to think of it make it fully brushed aluminum there :D...

    Samsung Unveils SyncMaster Monitor with Ultra Wide Band Wireless Technology

    Not when I'm in a nerd rage while playing Unreal Tournament 3. or any other real time fast paced game for that matter. I tend to think it like this... computers that that need wireless are better off being: all in one pc's, handheld devices, backup drives, etc. Computers that have serious...

    Gigabyte Radeon HD6850 Artifacts

    I reinstalled 3 times, all fresh installs, all with minimal drivers then slowly building up to pinpoint the problem. Hell the 3rd install was from another DVD used by a neighbor of mine, First two were MSDN untouched iso's . It's highly unlikely this is a software issue since it persisted over...

    Zalman Announces HDD Enclosure with Virtual Drive Feature

    Not necessarily... You CAN install say windows from windows, or upgrade it, you don't need to boot from the disk. However a clean fresh install cant be done like this. Example you could say install windows 7 with daemon tools, doesn't mean that's hardware based or bootable for that matter.

    Zalman Announces HDD Enclosure with Virtual Drive Feature

    3 Words. Grub4dos iso mount:) It's a bit unclear, can I boot from it if required? or I does it only install OS if you're accessing it from an OS... If this is a (hardware based+ system agnostic) iso mounting tool then wow, otherwise meh.
