    The Mojo Story - Yes it's true

    It seems like every couple of years I find my way back to this thread. It's a great story, but more than that it reminds me of the peak of my computer hardware enthusiast days; working in a Mom & Pop computer store, building boxen, obsessively checking my Folding stats and gaming to my heart's...

    The original apple band VS the third-party band

    I got my watch with the Nike band about 7 months ago and I really like it. I wear my watch 24/7 (minus charging it every 2 or 3 days) and the band isn't even starting to show any signs of wear. I chose it over the normal silicone band because I thought it looked too plain and was worried about...

    IPad Air 2 > iPad Pro 10.5 today...

    I think you're mistaken, the iPad Pro 10.5 really isn't much better than the Air 2, or even the Air 1 for that matter. *Looks at iPad Air 1 on desk, continues to live in blissful denial*

    Download Every Tribes Game For Free

    Ha! Yep me too. I put a lot of time into WoW, so that's saying something. :D I also bought an NVidia Riva TNT specifically for Tribes 1, but I held out a bit longer and got a GeForce 2 GTS when they came out. It had a massive 32MB of VRAM if memory serves.

    Making an EMI radiation shield for a laptop?

    I agree with what you're saying as a whole, but I need to point out (since you put it in caps) that the type of radiation that comes from a laptop is not ionizing radiation, but instead NON-IONIZING radiation. Any commercial RF (wifi, radio/tv broadcasts, satcom, etc) is of the non-ionizing...

    Is the Nexus 6 still worth getting?

    I've had the 6 since the original price drop in June and I really like it. It is big but once I accepted that it's not a one handed device I don't mind the size at all. I do still keep my 4.7" Moto X for the rare occasions where the 6 is too big to carry; for me that's maybe once every couple...

    Microsoft Lumia 950 & 950 XL

    It's because it's cutting edge to use a heatpipe in a phone, and geeks like us eat that shit up. However, from an engineering standpoint if you're using an SoC in a mobile device that requires a heatpipe you really need to question your priorities.

    My new MSI GTX 970's arrived!

    1. I am very jealous (see signature). I've been happy with them until recently when I started playing Ark. 2. Where did you find 970s that cheap? I've been keeping an eye on over the last month and they've been steady at ~$425CDN

    Fable Legends DX12 benchmark

    That's brilliant! So clearly AMD is the superior brand just based on foot warming utility. :D

    The Downfall Of Microsoft’s Kinect

    Agreed! I bought one specifically to control my home theatre and it works well for that. I also chose it over the PS4 (which I think is better hardware) as at the time the PS4 didn't even have DLNA capability. As for games I've tried a few and I find the fitness ones the best. I'm really...

    Legendary Sierra Entertainment Rises Mysteriously from the Grave

    That's exactly what I was thinking when I saw the headline. I do enjoy the sequels (still play Tribes Asend from time to time), but there was something special about Tribes 1. I'd like to see a remake.

    YouTube Idiot of the Day

    I'm not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, he was driving like a jackass but most of what he was doing seemed like a calculated risk; It wasn't full on retard. On the other hand, I watched the video to the end secretly hoping for a fiery crash :D

    Oculus to Show Off Latest VR Headset at CES

    x2 I'm at the "shut up and take my money" level of excitement. This + Star Citizen and my wife will never see me again :D

    Notebooks with two battery slots

    Agreed, I think you'll only find this in business lines of notebooks. Have a look at Lenovo ThinkPads, they offer two options depending on the model: 1. 2nd battery via the UltraBay (takes the place of the optical drive), you can also get a 2nd HDD this way. 2. 2nd battery via a "Slice...
