    Trusted sources for reviews

    Been away for a long time and thinking about building a new PC in a few months. What are your trusted sources for reviews now that HardOCP is no more?

    Basic question about triple monitor setup

    It looks like that card has two DVI ports, an HDMI, and a displayport. As I recall, for 2560x1600 you need to use both DVI ports, right? Isn't HDMI limited to 1080p resolution as in won't support 1920x1200? Can displayport support two monitors at 1900x1200? Also - the 680 is a bit steep. I...

    Basic question about triple monitor setup

    Hey guys been a while since I've posted on these forums and I've been out of the system building practice for a while so I don't know what's possible these days with modern hardware. Anyway - what I'm interested in setting up is a 3 display workstation connected to a SFF case. One 30" in the...

    Burning: Canon Powershot S95 $229

    You can still get it here for $250: http://www.techtoysshop.com/product_info.php?product_id=4282 Interestingly they have a link to buy from Amazon for $229 but when you click it, it shows as $299.

    HP ZR24w

    It's a good thing this forum has the ability to search: http://hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1035569644&postcount=1147 No need to read the whole thing. It sounds like you can hook up an xbox 360 but it will not display 1:1 and will stretch the screen a bit. Sucks imo. But I do love my ZR24w!

    Share my media?

    BTW the media server is a CM404, so no way you can install anything like orb on it. From what I can tell it's just SMB and NFS.

    Share my media?

    Yeah I hate the idea of opening up SMB to the Internet. VPN sounds like a good idea. My only concern with that is ease of use. To clarify, this isn't really for me. This is for a friend, who is somewhat tech savvy, but not nearly as much as me. And I think his friends are probably even less...

    Share my media?

    It's been a while since I've looked into this but I'd like to share my media (music/movies/etc) with friends/family over the Internet. As I recall most of the solutions that do this, such as Orb, do so via streaming. I'm not really interested in streaming technologies but more something like...

    I think your numbers got scewed somehow. The upload speeds reported by speedtest and fcc test are confirmed inaccurate at 25m, and everybody else has been reporting 5-15m down so I highly doubt that's an accurate reading you're getting. Most 4g places I've been have were 4-12m down which is...

    IT Resume Thread

    Don't focus on what you're doing wrong, focus on what you need to do right. Your resume is not that bad. Its got a lot of goodness in it - just a matter of properly highlighting the important parts for the jobs you're applying for. Keep in mind that when you apply for a job you almost always...

    HTC Thunderbolt

    I do like the power controls widgets to turn on/off wifi/bluetooth/gps/airplaneMode/etc. One thing I miss from Stock Froyo is the link to the browser on the bottom menu bar saving you one icon space on your main screen. I use the browser much more often than I personalize my device. One...

    Why would anyone want a battery widget when the very top menu bar has a battery status indicator? Is that not enough? And if you need more, menu-->settings-->aboutPhone-->battery... I don't get it. Maybe just me... but I don't really see much point in widgets at all. Sure on a home desktop...

    Rooted - hopefully CM7 or something similarly nice comes along with some Gingerbread goodness.

    HTC Thunderbolt

    I'm going to try rooting mine with a Mac. I've read through the instructions and don't see any reason it shouldn't work. BTW, running unsigned software on my phone feels like unprotected sex with a new partner. Why would anyone want to run an unsigned ROM with 'virus' in the name?

    HTC Thunderbolt

    Maybe but I'm sure there are alternatives. I think gorilla glass is just a branded version of tempered glass. BTW my D1 never had a screen protector and I always put it in my pocket with my keys and it still doesn't have a single scratch on it. Amazing.

    If I root, is the ROM that is available the exact same code as what's on my phone now or is it an early pre-release version? Don't want to root if it's going to contain some bugs.

    HTC Thunderbolt

    I'm in NYC and am using 4g + wifi hotspot mode to get my laptop on the net 8 hrs/day while I work. Totally fast and reliable - better than most hotel hotspots and some business networks. Just need to keep it plugged into power so the battery doesn't die.

    I think that rumor is limited to folks without a 2 year contract. Unlimited data will go up to $50/mo.

    HTC Thunderbolt

    That battery is going to make the phone huge and restrict a lot of use with accessories. But the battery life will be sweet. I think I'm cool with the life as is. Doesn't really seem any worse than my original droid which is great considering how much better the phone is and that it has the...

    Just to be clear - if I root and want to run any stock update Verizon pushes, I can, it just might take a bit for someone to make it available, right? I came from Droid1 and I'm not sure I really like sense like I thought I would. Stock android seems pretty good to me. Would like to go 2.3...

    HTC Thunderbolt

    I was a bit pissed to know I have 8gb internal then saw there was only 2.something available on first boot after purchase. WTF HTC and Verizon? I saw some twitter post saying that if you install the first update for tbolt that the root will no longer work. Not sure if I'm going root yet or...

    Regarding "bloatware". What is there and how did you remove it? I want stock gingerbread and maybe sense if possible. Also would like the option to run stock version thunderbolt came with in case there are problems.

    HTC Thunderbolt

    Exactly, there is no published rate and could change from month to month depending on the average user's use. Why are you so worried about exceeding Verizon's "unlimited limit"? I would think they would warn you once before just shutting you off.

    I got 4m down and 22m up with two bars. Also been messing around on a bus bored for a few hours and still have over half the battery left. Not as bad as I thought the first day.

    Just picked one up, yeah! Coming from the D1 this is pretty awesome. Although I'll say there are a couple things I miss from my rooted droid but I'm sure that'll change over time.

    Also its 768m Ram. Amazon wireless has a good deal on it but I heard they're already backordered. I'll head to Verizon and Best Buy tomorrow and see if I can get a decent deal on one.

    MPAA Sues Hotfile, Battle for Cloud Begins

    This is not an attack on "the cloud". This is an attack on the promotion of storing illegal content in the cloud. I'm sure the cloud is going to weather this sprinkly storm.

    Are there Google Apps "gadgets" for Windows 7?

    Came across this page which was removed so I had to view a cached version. It looks like they've taken the gmail checker for standard gmail and modified the registry so that it works for a google apps domain (www.google.com/a/domain.com). Surprisingly I don't see a lot out there for google...

    HP ZR24w

    My employer recently bought me a ST2410 and I didn't really realize how nice the ZR24w was until I got this. The ST2410 isn't bad for the work I do but the ZR24w is wayyy better with color. My only gripe is the lack of windowed mode for lower res inputs and the lack of an HDMI input (although...

    Looks like I'm getting a MacBook Pro

    What external keyboards are you all using? I'm used to ergonomic ones and don't know that i'll get used to the tiny external Apple KB that doesn't have a number pad. Also, do you think that the Matrox DualHead2Go DP Edition would allow the laptop display to be between two LCD screens? All the...

    Gah waited to long! Seems I saw one of these on sale about this time last year and have wanted one since then. Wait another year? Anyone have alternative suggestions? Next best price is a whole $100 more!
