    Apple: iPhone 5 Defect “Normal”

    No. No. Like this? If you're just here to troll, that's fine (though it makes you look silly). If want to know the truth, dpreview covers it well. I can easily reproduce this with every camera I own, including a variety of smartphones, point-and-shoots, and a Canon 5DS Mark...

    Apple: iPhone 5 Defect “Normal”

    This "controversy" is absurdly silly, and anyone who understands photography (or optics) decently well knows it. All similar cameras (those with no lens baffle) exhibit the same effects. If you don't know it, and want to, listen to the most recent Anandtech podcast (#7) and they explain why...

    Apple's Siri Let's Anyone Use A Locked iPhone 4S

    PS. The headline-baiting of this article is terrible, but unfortunately, all-too-expected for anything Apple-related on HardOCP. From reading the HardOCP summary, I immediately assumed that there was some hack you could use to completely bypass the lock via Siri. When I read the article, I...

    Apple's Siri Let's Anyone Use A Locked iPhone 4S

    Really? This seems like a bit more hype than substance from Sophos... True: The default configuration of Siri does let you use the feature without entering your unlock code first. However, as noted in the article, you are able to turn this off easily via the Settings app (then you'd have...

    Microsoft to End Support For Windows 2000, XP

    Microsoft explains the differences between the different support phases on their FAQ here: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/lifepolicy Basically, Extended Support means you get Security Hotfixes and the Product Knowledgebase is still updated with information relevant to the OS. If you want...

    Microsoft to End Support For Windows 2000, XP

    The coverage here of the article is a bit misleading. Microsoft is NOT ending "extended support" of Windows XP completely. They are ending Extended Support for Windows 2000 and Windows XP Service Pack 2 on July 13th. Windows XP Service Pack 3, the current service pack, will continue to be...

    Carrier Pigeon Beats Broadband

    While this is amusing, they did rig the results somewhat by making the destination site only 60 miles away. Heck, I could drive that distance faster in my car too, probably. It fails to account for the beauty of the Internet in eliminating physical distance as a serious, relevant factor in...

    I need an AGP card for $150

    Right... And there's this one from Sapphire for about $250 (not in stock but supposedly coming soon). http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=326860 The x1950 AGP card is really obliterating anything else out there on the AGP platform...

    ASUS A8R32-MVP Deluxe @ [H] Enthusiast

    Thanks! My Mushkin DDR is regular height, so it should be okay. If I didn't already have both the 7700 and the 7000B coolers I probably would pick up a 9500, but alas I bought mine before the new one came out. If by chance I can't get it to fit I'll probably pick up one of the 9500's...

    ASUS A8R32-MVP Deluxe @ [H] Enthusiast

    Any word on if the Zalman CNPS7700 (or if not that the CNPS7000) coolers will work? They're large, but tall, so I'm hoping I'll still be able to reuse one of those with my new board when it shows up from Newegg! Right now I have 2 Mushkin Redline 1 GB sticks that I want to use (though I have...
