    This should more appropriately be titled: Buyer beware... I recently purchased 2 games from gameloft at $4.99 each. Since I don't have a credit card myself, I gave a friend cash to put it on her card. A problem arose today when she noticed she was $105 short this morning. She was...

    Good case for Droid X?

    I have gone through two Body Glove cases in the last 45 day. The first was an open box item so i will give that a 1/2 a point, but the other was brand new. They both had the same problem of the upper right corner latch breaking, so i am hesitant in getting another one although I love the feel...

    Hulu what?!?

    Sidereel FTW! It does limit you to the amount of viewing (you can watch 74 mins and then you have to wait 54 mins, or something like that), but to catch 2-3 1/2 hour shows on the fly it's great! And did i mention that is free and there are no commercials? It does take a few extra clicks to get...

    Droid X owners...who likes the UI?

    First Question: Who's a fan of the DroidX UI? I love the SenseUI on my Incredible, but I am looking at exchanging it for an X when they are in stock on friday. My only concern is the UI seems ugly and clink...not very refined. Yes i know you can resize widgets (that is a feature that HTC...

    Getting a new Verizon phone...

    and Im torn between the HTC Touch Pro 2, and the Droid Eris. They cost the same, and I do like the sleekness of the Eris, but if the HTC TP2 is that much better, I would gladly carry the extra bulk. I do like the physical keyboard, Im just unsure about WinMo6.5. Does anyone know if if will be...

    Can anyone recommend a good 5.25" PSU?

    I am thinking about building a HTPC within the secondary compartment of my TT Mozart case and need a PSU that will fit into a 5.25" bay. All the ones I have found are designed for GPU's and dont seem to be capable of powering a mobo with a 24-pin connection. Im only planning on running a E8400...

    Im looking at getting a new GPU for a htpc and was looking for a list that showed which cards do better at folding. Im looking at a lower end card with HDMI OUT, such as the HD 3450, but if there was a card that folded better, and was still htpc friendly, then i would go that route. Price is a...

    Best video card to play MS: Flight Simulator X?

    I have a friend that just bought a computer just to play FSX...he had a Geforce 7950X2 1GB to start but it didn't even come close to providing the detail he was looking for.

However it has a height of 155mm and Antec told me today that the distance from the cpu and the...

    Best passively cooled "low-profile" ram for overclocking?

    I am building a quiet pc that I am going to overclock a tich, and am considering the Scythe SCORC-1000 as my heat-sink, based on my case selection of the Antec P190, which limits my memory selection a bit due to the design. My build consists of a Intel mobo with at least 1066/1333 specs...
