    What are CALs and why do I need them?

    We have a windows 2003 server that is on its last leg that I inherited to manage and I am wanting to build a new server running windows 2008 to replace it. We have 24ish users that remote desktop to the server and run some accounting software on it and it has been that way before I inherited...

    New iPad Is Really Hot

    It is a prototype tablet and I cant really say anything more about it because of legal issues but it did in fact get up to 138F but that could change before it goes retail. I can however say that the Acer Iconia Tab W500 got up to 124F in the same test as the prototype.

    New iPad Is Really Hot

    Just because the battery was still draining doesn't mean it still wasn't charging. It could mean the charge couldn't keep up with how much the device was using from the battery.

    New iPad Is Really Hot

    I have been doing a lot of test with tablets lately for a work and heat is one of our concerns. One of the windows tablets I was testing while plugged and running a game got up to 138F degrees and the test had to be aborted for fear of breaking the tablet. Game used for the test was World of...

    New iPad Is Really Hot

    That is true but warm does not equal hot. Those are two different spectrum of temperatures. They would have been better off saying what the case temperature is of the case in your hand but of course that wouldn't draw as much attention as 116 degrees marketing for the win! Also another side...

    New iPad Is Really Hot

    maybe you guys should read the article before you post: "During our tests, I held the new iPad in my hands. When it was at its hottest, it felt very warm but not especially uncomfortable if held for a brief period." So it runs a few degrees hotter. Still doesn't have shit on my laptop or the...

    JB PS3 4.00?

    Desperate for help server 2003 will not boot

    Long story short I messed up and accidentally yank out a hotswap drive while still in windows 2003 r2. The server is running raid 5 with three drives. I let the controller rebuild the drive I yanked and I had to run a partition recovery program to recovery the partition which I can see...

    BF3 on The 360 is 'Standard Def' Without HDD Install

    Hmmm spend more money to play fewer graphically enhanced games that you need to spend hours configuring or spend less money to play a ton more less graphically enhanced games with no configuring. I think I will go with option B since I get more bang for the buck. Enjoy spending more money for...

    Rage sucks

    A console that has been out for five years is much easier to develop for than a new one. Easier development means lower cost which nets a higher gross. You guys can kick, scream and throw tantrums all you want but nothing speaks louder than not giving them your money. How have you guys not...

    Rage sucks

    Developing video games is a business and are in it to make money. Any good business will tell you that you need to carter to your largest customer base first which are the console players. It makes sense and it's great for business. You spending tons of money on hardware HAS NOTHING TO DO...

    Gears 3

    No it will auto blow up when near an enemy or when it reaches it max range to travel. The gun was way more powerful in the beta since it had a bigger explosion and has been toned down for the retail. I think adding the ability to detonate the bomb would be a great feature to add to the...

    DNF leaked early...with a twist

    All piracy in those area are absurdly high not just consoles. Look there is no doubt that consoles have piracy problems just like PCs do BUT at the end of the day the console version will sale more copies.

    Sony has taken multi-player to the next level.

    Keep in mind that he is just showing you how to get split 2D but with the Sony tv you are getting split full 3D screens.

    DNF leaked early...with a twist

    Modding you 360 is a lot bigger deal to your average consumer than it is to install a game and drag and drop a crack file into it. If you screw up on the PC you just delete the game were as if you screw up modding your console you could be out a few hundred bones. That is going to scare away a...

    DNF leaked early...with a twist

    +1 to this. This happens all the time to both console and PC. The difference is that more copies will sale on the consoles so it doesn't look as bad.

    Gaming Age

    All I've ever cared about was video games and they made me a millionaire. So maybe I don't know what the Civil War was, or who invented the helicopter even though I own one, but I did beat The Legend of Zelda before I could walk. I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but...

    Last bosses in fighting games

    Why do game devs make last bosses in fighting games cheap/frustrating? It is like every fighting game the bosses get more cheap and overpowered. Why not just make them like a regular player that fights really well? Alpha-152 (DOA4), Seth (SF4) and Shao Kahn (MK9) all spring to mind as...

    Nintendo Wii U

    Sony tried to pull this too with the PS3. When they show a bunch of pre-render videos and said this is what it will look like but it was not even close when they games did finally start to come out. Just because they claim it can output 1080p does not mean they game will be able to render at...

    Valve: no new engine anytime soon

    Sweet less money need for new hardware which means more money to spend on hookers. You guys need to look at the plus side to this....MOAH HOOKERS! CS 1.6 is still one of the most played PC game to date and you know why? It is because it will run on anything and it's fun.

    PS3 Hacker Runs Away to South America

    Not true. The TOS list the rights of the firmware for Sony Japan, not the SCEA. Two different companies and SCEA is the one suing. So if anything this may favor Geohot.

    Game development stalled until 2015?

    That could be true. BUT it sold 5 million copies two months after launch link. Both console versions add up to a little bit over 5 million by them selves so either way the PC version even with digital copies doesn't come close to the console sales.

    Game development stalled until 2015?

    Wrong. PC version only sold 310,000 copies while the PS3 sold 2.17 million copies and the 360 sold 2.87 million copies. The PC sales are laughable compared to the console sales. Why are PC only gamers soo delusional the glory days of PC games are over.....sadly link
