    Microsoft Launches Office For Android Smartphones

    The office suite before required Office 365 subscription afaik. And MS released the tablet version of these apps a month or two ago. These ones are for phone and do not require an Office 365 sub (at least for me)

    Windows 10 Could Be Best Microsoft OS Ever For PC Gamers

    Even if Microsoft wanted publishers to do that, it would be an awful business decision for EA (or any other game publisher) to not force gamers to buy a copy of the same game multiple times for multiple platforms.

    Surface Pro 3 Review: Microsoft Proves It's Third Time Lucky

    Seems like the touchpad on your cover might be messed up. The only 'deadspot' on the touchpad is the top quarter, and I always click instead of tap and have never had the cursor move even an iota. I love my SP3, best laptop I've ever owned. Having a touchscreen is actually really nice, I find...

    Anyone buy a 970 with blower-style fan (evga or pny)?

    Just wanted to report that I too bought the PNY card and am very happy with it. I've got it in a packed mATX case, and it's a bit quieter than my 690 at idle and very reasonable at load (pleasant sound signature, no coil whine). Haven't broken 72C with +100 gpu / +200 memory so far.

    Anyone buy a 970 with blower-style fan (evga or pny)?

    Thanks SO much for your report! Can you turn down the fan speed at idle at all to make it quieter? Definitely think I'm going to pick up a PNY now :)

    Yeah that's what it seems, shame as I really like their customer service. Alright guess I'll either get the PNY - depending on xp3nd4bl3's report - or go with the Asus. The semi-passive nature of the Asus is desirable as I won't be gaming much.

    That's the SC with the blower or ACX? Much thanks, I look forward to hearing how it is! I too have an mATX case, and my 690 only works at proper clocks if the side panel is off :D

    Anyone buy a 970 with blower-style fan (evga or pny)?

    I'm going to buying a 970 soon and would very much prefer one with a blower style fan, due to my tiny case. I saw that only evga and pny have such models, but have not been able to find any reviews of it. Has anyone here on [h] bought one, and if so, how is the noise and cooling?

    EVGA screwed up ACX on the 970.

    Is the squealing issue only with ACX coolers, or does it also happen on the blower model? I looked through the thread but may have missed something on it

    After BF4 I swore off pre-ordering a game forever. What a shame
