    PETITION: iPhone 5 RECALL - Power Button Defect

    Never had an issue with the power buttons on either my wife's 4S or my 4S. She also has a 5S for work and there is no issue there either. My issues have been with that shitty home button. It is starting to go out on mine. Sometimes I need to press it a few times to close apps. I hope they do...

    Woman Is Live-Tweeting Her Father's Death

    According to you. Death fucks people up in different ways. Don't read it if you find it disgusting, but don't shit on others for how they cope with death.

    Are Angry Fanboys Bad for Games?

    I always thought the worst thing was all the bullshit they try to stuff down your throat. The same could be said for gaming...

    OUYA Now 33% Off Plus $25 Game Credit

    Never understood the hate. It plays any emulated games up-to and including N64 and PS1, works as a great XBMC box, and has some decent selection of native indie games. The Ouya controller is nothing to write home about, but it works with the DS3 and 360 controllers. For the price, its pretty...

    I could see it happening. Who ever thought they'd use Angry Birds to collect data?

    How This Guy Lost A $50,000 Twitter Username

    Agreed. It's amazing where value is placed these days. Good thing I weaned myself off of social networks a long time ago. Facebook, Twitter, etc. are huge time sinks when I have better things to do such as post on HardForum or browse Newegg. :cool: :p

    Steam down for anyone else?

    What a dick. I'm still on the fence about streaming for a living. While it would be cool as hell to do that for a job, I think an actual job would stimulate my brain a little more. Plus there are only so many hours I can play games before my eyes turn into jelly.

    Steam down for anyone else?

    I would love to know too. But whatever the reason is, it's probably stupid.

    Steam down for anyone else? Games are serious business apparently. What ever happened to just playing and not getting your panties in a bunch enough to try and ruin it for everyone else?

    Best hassle-free way to get a Mint system up and running for Steam gaming...

    So I recently dropped Windows 8.1 on my gaming comp for Mint 16. After some trial and error I found a way to get the newest beta drivers up and running correctly for my setup and I thought I'd share. While I could go and fix the drivers to actually work, I followed these steps in order to just...

    The highly rated HP Pavilion Slimline PC thread

    Retired my Slimline yesterday. Needed more room with buying a Radeon R7 240. Ended up being a dual slot card and my mATX board is just too big. Amazingly the power supply could handle it being a 210w. Moved everything into a Rosewill R379-M case w/ 300w PSU. Will be moving up to Kaveri when it...

    IT Hiring Strongest Since June 1998

    I knew a few who were laid off in my degree program a couple years ago. Sad times. Probably got their jobs with Associates and when the lay offs hit, they had to go back to school just to get back into things again. Of course I'm not finding much myself. I've got 4+ years experience and a...
