    HP buys Palm for 1.2 BILLION

    http://www.engadget.com/2010/04/28/hp-buys-palm/ Holy crap. :twitch: I guess Palm isn't going to die off slowly after all. Just going to be consumed,

    Comcast loves TPU

    So I'm the kind of guy that needs to have their service turned off in order to fork money over to the man. Not that I don't have money, I just don't like giving it away regardless of who's on the receiving end. Comcast decided that making payments more than 20 days late gets my service shut off...

    [FS/FT][US] OCZ DDR3 1600 2x2GB 8-8-8-24 1.9v

    In an overzealous attempt to build a sweet, budget-y, all AM3 rig for a client, I overlooked (or rather it wasn't listed) the voltage recommendations for my mobo. Thusly, these two sticks ran for about 48 hours total over 4-5 days, and are just as shiny as the day I got them. Eventually my...

    Interesting NIC problems

    Hi there guys. :toast: Usually I don't find much need to post problems here on TPU, I like to come and solve them. Today (the past week), I've been having some issues with my onboard network adapter. Apparently, it just died one day. Disappeared from the device manager and everything...

    [FF][US] 1 Month FREE Netflix!

    Periodically I get these free trial cards from Netflix. They're good for one month, but you still have to sign-up with a valid CC. Essentially they give you the first month free, and if you cancel before it ends, that's all there is to it. I've had really good experiences with them on delivery...

    The Dark Tower Mod

    Anyone familiar with the Dark Tower series by Stephen King? Great books, among my all time favorites. Back to that later, as first we have the case (16$!) that I have to dig through and pull apart. It helps with the thinking process. For scale, I've used a can of Rockstar in most (all?) of my...

    CoolerMaster Mystique

    I've had this case sitting around for a good while now. Already did some hole cutting and wire routing, not worthy of a project log really. Had the thing running for a whole week before the PSU took a dump. In turn, I proceeded to empty it out, and continue with a few more mods. First off...

    Phenom X3 8750 reviews and Overclocking

    You can find a whole bunch of reviews on the X3 line now. On average they OC rather well, around 2.8ghz. Lower results claimed they couldn't push past 2.6ghz, others got as high as 3.1ghz. Nice amount of variation, but more likely due to reviewers missing out on key OC elements. At any rate...

    Case Mod Gallery

    I'm sure there's some discussion ongoing about comments when voting, didn't think it was the right place. In the view where you can see your green check next to cases you voted on, how about the vote you gave each case showing up? Chances are some cases get low voted due to lack of pics...
