    Battlefield 4 Beta Performance Preview @ [H]

    Awesome article. Can't wait for the Win 7 vs 8 comparison. In terms of performance for the full version of the game coming out in just under 3 weeks, it'll be interesting to see where it goes. On one side, the beta is running from an older build of the final game and so obviously its not as...

    Windows 8 vs Windows 7 Performance

    This is what I've been trying to explain to people (in person, not on the web). Under the hood, Windows 8 is fantastic. Its faster, smoother and especially for SSDs, a god send. Take away Metro, and you have an excellent OS.

    How Long Did It Take To Install Windows 8?

    Seriously? Seriously? Installing/updating a new version of a mobile OS is included in his list of OS' he has installed? Wow, credibility gone...

    ‘Medal of Honor: Warfighter’ Pre-Order Deals

    Yeah, the investors skipped the reviews and the sale numbers allowed them to fund a second one. Do you know who did look at the reviews? Danger Close, they're developing it so they looked at the reviews. I don't think its going to be a superb game, but it'll be solid (probably low to mid 80...

    Microsoft Surface for Windows RT for $199?

    $199 for a 10" tablet is far fetched, but $299 is more plausible and more reasonable too. Specs haven't been released, but what is known is the fact that the RT version will have a rather sub par 1366x768 (but still useable) and that might actually help it range between $299-$399. That's a...

    Max Payne 3 Performance and IQ Review @ [H]

    It seems like the small delay for the PC version has paid off. Again, the visuals are great, but you can certainly tell that the true capabilities of the game's engine are held back, especially with the levels of details. It looks great, but I think it could have looked even better if there...

    No DVD Playback In Windows 8

    lol who cares? So many people use XBMC anyway, plus, Windows media player is garbage, use VLC or WMC.

    Microsoft Says No New Xbox 'Anytime Soon'

    LOLOLOLOL everyone in here is so pissed off at the 360's success. Give me a break, the 360 is the embodiment of genius marketing on MS' part. Being able to sell over 15 million units per year of hardware that is 7 years old is something that even Apple would have a wet dream about. Don't hate...

    Government Says If It Ends in .Com, It’s .Seizable

    This is kinda crappy. I don't care at all for the politics, most of my favourite sports streaming sites have been taken down, but were almost immediately replaced with a .me or .eu link :) hopefully more of my sports streaming sites pick up. Too bad its hard to get good soccer channels here in...

    Report: iPad 3 to be Announced in First Week of March

    2048x1536? I'm pretty sure that's just a rumor with great exaggerated. Something more believable is a A6 quad core chip, 1GB of ram all the while managing ~10 hours of use.

    $30k iPhone Speakers

    Steve, while I love [H] and I come here everyday to read news, I don't appreciate the use of the word "retard". Its not a very inclusive word to be used and I would appreciate it if such language isn't used for front page news reports.

    Acer, Asus and Dell 'To Exit Android Tablets' ?

    There's an inherent problem with all these manufacturers, they're using a variation of Android. Don't get me wrong, Android is an excellent OS for the phone, but unlike iOS for the iPad it literally feels "blown up to fit a bigger screen" on tablets. Either Google needs to put more work into it...
