    Nokia Shareholders Rip Elop As A ‘Triple-A Flop’

    Part of that is because if a candidate has already made mistakes at a different company, he's less likely to make the same ones at the one that's hiring him. It might have been Balmer who said he preferred someone who already made mistakes, so long as he was confident the person had learned...

    Ubuntu Smart Phone Makers Trying To Crowdfund $32M

    If they don't hit 15 mil in 5 days, they won't make it. Crowd funded projects tend to start strong and end slow. We will find out how much momentum this project has once the day one priced devices have sold out.

    UCLA Professor Lets Students Cheat To Learn

    Bare minimum card for windows 8

    Intel GMA 950 is probably the oldest and slowest graphics that works on windows 8. I think it will require you to use windows 7 drivers, but they should work fine. The Nvidia 6000 series appears to be the slowest/oldest NVidia cards that support window 8 AMD's HD2000 series appears to be...

    Frame Latency

    Sounds like either a driver conflict (occasionally still happens when switching from NVidia to AMD and vice versa), or outdated drivers. My 7950 runs far cry 3 without any stuttering on 12.2 Beta 6

    40M Windows 8 Licenses Sold In One Month

    I have no idea how many were sold to major oem's, but I've purchased 3 win 8 copies so far. It's just cheaper to upgrade a win 7 premium machine to win 8 pro than to win 7 pro as required to connect to an AD server. If I had to guess, id say 85% were sold to OEM's though, the rest being a...

    BitTorrent Traffic Increases 40% In Half A Year

    While Bittorrent bandwidth usage went up 40%, how much of that is related to larger file sizes, and improvements in internet download and upload speeds? How much of the increasing is from the same people torrenting more vs an increase in the number of people using bittorrent?

    Download Windows 8 Consumer Preview

    I've used it in a vm for a bit, and I don't mind it on the desktop. It's not as good as windows 7 for desktop use. In general though, I didn't find it will hurt my productivity in any way. On the other hand, for touchscreen interfaces it's a huge step forwards, and if I end up getting a...

    Five Reasons to Stay Off Google+ For Now

    I'll be surprised if Google ever relents on it's real name policy, but I think they might allow public profile details to only show a pseudonym and not the person's real name. IE, you might only display your pseudonym(s) to people not in your circles, but display your real name to your friends...

    NVIDIA’s CEO On Upcoming Android Tablets

    The biggest advantage to slates is that they are easy to carry around, work great as basic note taking devices, and are also really good for putting in places where documentation is required, and always needs to be up to date. Because they have an embedded 3g modem available, the data can be...

    Apple Sold More iPads Than Macs

    I know a lot of people that have an iPad for business. They use it for note taking, and for easy access to email and files when away from their desk. There's just nothing else even close once it comes to form factor and battery life for the price.

    Suggestions on mounting a fan to NB of DFI DK p35 mobo

    I have the hr-05 on this board and it keeps the temps below 40 pretty much no matter what I do with the board. I have a thermalright ultra 120 extreme right next to it with a 120mm fan flow up between the two heatsinks (connected to the 120 xtreme) blowing the air right out the top of my antec...

    4 months of e8400 + GA-965P-DS3

    My GA-965P-DS3 Rev 3.3 has finally died after 10 months, 4 of which my e8400 was running in it. It died after I left it running semi stable (failed OCCT) @ 4.0 GHZ , 1.35V over the weekend when i went on a road trip. When i came back it was still running, but running very sluggishly, and i...

    Gigabyte P965-P35 X38 overclocking and BIOS tweaking Guide

    Yah, just enable the drivers in the registry, restart with the AHCI enabled in the bios, and install the latest intel chipset drivers to get the intel AHCI driver. I just finished doing this in vista 2 weeks ago with no problems.

    Which Giga Mobo 4 8400?

    The DS3-L has not only more channels, but a higher quality onboard sound chip, more PCI express 2/4x slots and less PCI slots. The DS3 is also also all solid capacitors, while the other one only has solid capacitors around the CPU. The cooling systems are similar, but overall the DS3L is the...

    Retail wolfdale overclocking thead! 8x00

    9*450 works for me, but I had to put a fan on the northbridge heatsink to get it to pass pcmark vantage (there is a point about 20 minutes in that really seems to stress the NB/memory). It's been rock solid for me since. This is on a gigabyte 965P-DS3 Rev 3.3 with the beta bios. vcore @ 1.3...

    Help :) Setting AMD 1333 (Long Specs!)

    That KT333CF is actually an early KT400 before it was renamed. I used to have one of them. They don't like going much above 170 MHZ fsb (at least with my Athlon XP 2500+, now on a kt880 @210FSB), but do have the same deviders and memory support the KT400 has.

    Speed up Windows XP- reg tweak

    My previous post was on a system with 512 ram and a fast hard drive. I've timed a laptop with only 256 ram and a slow 40gb 4200rpm hard drive. Startup times before the tweak were 5:00 and after the tweak 3:45. (this is to usable state, not completely loaded, but nearly there as it is not...

    Speed up Windows XP- reg tweak

    I tried it. It more than split my startup times and my browsers (firefox at least. ie always opened fast) seem to load faster as well. This makes sense as I enabled supercaching, restarted the computer, used it for half a day in which firefox was open and closed reapeatedly (and kept open for...

    New Dual Intel 2.8 for AMD something for 300 bucks?

    PCP&P 510 SLI with low 12v rail

    Which drivers are you using on the video card. If they are the nvidia 71.84 officials that could be the source of your problem since they have a temp bug that causes the video cards temp to increase by 20 degrees. (not only in drivers but when tested with externally as well). I highly doubt...

    Increase from 2.8C to 3.4E?

    So you're comparing an Athlon 64 @ 2.6 to a P4 @ 4.0. Even at that speed they are very similar in performance with the processers swapping wins in everything except gaming. In responce to your original question, A P4E @3.4 is likely to run at about the same speed as the 2.8C@3.3. At stock...

    AMD Sempron 2400 only shows up as XP 1GHz

    Make sure the front side bus is set to 166/333 or it will show up as an athlon 1000. This can be done either via a Jumper or through the bios (or a combination of both). Look in the motherboards manual to see how to do this. the other thing to do is update the bios to the latest version
