    Which is your favorite iPhone 4 concept/mock-up?

    There has been much speculation about what the next version of the iPhone will look like. It seems as though quite a few people don't like the prototype pictured on Gizmodo this week. Which of these iPhone mock-ups do you like the best? Official Apple prototype Concept 1 Concept 2...

    Maybe Chrome isn't always faster than Firefox...

    So my friend created a website today that uses JavaScript to implement a cover flow effect when you scroll the mouse wheel. When I went to the site using Chrome on my laptop, which is somewhat slow by today's standards (2 GHz Turion), the image scrolling was pretty slow. I tried it in Firefox...

    In-ceiling speakers and amp for computer

    So I want to build a home audio system and connect it to my computer. I will have either 8 or 10 in-ceiling speakers spread throughout the house. Each of 4 or 5 rooms will have a pair of speakers controlled by one of these. Does anyone have any experience with in-ceiling speakers? Can you...

    Designing home sound system: Need advice on controlling it

Here's a rough layout of the basement showing where speakers (red) will be placed in the ceiling. The speaker placement isn't very important at this point. I need ideas for controlling the...

    Most CPU utilization meters for Core i7 are flawed... (solution inside)

    So I was sitting here today and it suddenly dawned on me that most the CPU utilization meters I've seen for i7 are flawed, and the ones that do get it right don't have pretty bar charts. Most of them show utilization for 8 separate threads (which they mistakenly call cores), which is fine if you...

    Suggestion: Mobile Phones section

    I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I think it would be cool to have a Mobile Phones section on [H]ard|Forum. After all, mobile phones are basically mini computers these days. It could be a section to discuss the phones themselves and the operating systems and software that...

    New disapointing monitor lineup at Best Buy

    So I was at Best Buy today and I saw four new large monitors. There were three 25.5" monitors by LG, Samsung, and Westinghouse, and a Hannspree 27.5". The good news is that 25.5" seems to be the new 24" and large monitors are becoming more popular. The bad news is that every single one of...

    My local Walmart had a couple Sony BDP-300 Blu-Ray players on clearance for $200. The boxes looked a little shoddy so I don't know if they were opened and returned or if Walmart is just trying to get rid of them.
