    Not sure if this will appeal to you, but apparently you can get 2GB of data and unlimited talk/text from Verizon for $60/month (Slickdeals thread).

    Advice wanted: Help me find the right fingertip grip gaming mouse

    It's not just "not wonderful", it's pretty terrible if you intend on actually using it as a button. I don't really use middle clicks for anything so the rest of the mouse is great for fingertip users (minus the slight acceleration of the sensor).

    Symantec Takes On One Of Largest Botnets In History

    Amen! Though I was kind of partial to their Symantic Antivirus Corporate Edition back in the day. That one wasn't too bad.

    He's referring to the next Windows Phone update (codename "Bittersweet Shimmer") which may make its debut on the Nokia Lumia 1520.

    Dell Gives Up On Windows RT

    Now the question becomes... when will MICROSOFT give up on Windows RT?

    Recommend a laptop that will compare to a MacBook Air

    Maybe an Acer S7 would be a solid choice. Good screen, decent battery life, and powerful enough for an ultrabook.

    Evga GTX 660 or GTX 760?

    It also depends on what kind of games you're going to be playing, though you'll probably even notice a difference in Minesweeper when upgrading from a GTS 450. :p

    Worth grabbing a second 7850 for crossfire?

    A bit late for that since he already bought the 2nd card. :p

    Gaming laptop recommendations

    If portability and battery life aren't a concern, go with a Clevo/Sager. Best bang for buck IMO.

    New Kindle Fires

    It seems like an fine tablet, but at the same price of a current generation Nexus 7? No thanks.

    Recommend a laptop that will compare to a MacBook Air

    Why not just recommend a MacBook Air instead of looking for an alternative? Is it a price concern?

    is That's Taiyo Yuden Light Scribe printable?

    I'd say just save yourself the hassle and get proper LightScribe discs.

    Build Check - Haven't built in a long time, would appreciate some feedback

    I hope you don't need VT-d for your work as the unlocked processors lack it.

    Yeah, but can it run Crysis?

    Are OCZ Vertex 4 SSDs still bad?

    I'd say just go with the Samsung for peace of mind. I hardly ever hear anybody complain about their SSDs.

    Upgrading from an SSD to a newer model - worth it?

    I'd say only if you're running out of space on them. Besides write speeds, you probably won't notice much of a difference other than in benchmarks.

    Best storage HD

    For pure storage, go with WD Green or Red drives; Green should be cheaper and easier to find.

    Budget gaming build

    Ah, I see. Thanks. Do you think NVIDIA/AMD pay the game companies to sabotage performance on the other's cards? Is that legal? :p

    Got an older 1000w Silverstone PSU on the cheap... keep it?

    Sell it or keep it as a backup somewhere. It's always a pain if your PSU blows and you're out a computer until you can get a replacement.

    iOS 7 Discussion

    Are you on Verizon? I've heard of massive battery life drops on the Verizon model (even relative to the GSM counterparts). You may have to disable the background auto-refresh feature for Apps to get battery life back to normal.

    Which Seasonic PSU to buy?

    Talk about confusing, posts going back and forth mentioning "760" as either a PSU or GPU. :p
