    AnandTech benchmarks the Nexus Prime

    I'm not going to say I told you so, (again and again and again! ;)) but AnandTech has rolled out some benchmarks of the Nexus Prime that puts CPU performance with the browser at best-in-class (though a signficant part of this is due to ICS optimizations) and GPU performance second only to the...

    GPU hardware acceleration in ICS

    Okay, this looks like a good topic for debate. From the Android SDK: So, does this mean that the Android UI itself is now hardware driven, or that hardware UI acceleration is simply available now to developers? Edit: There's also a spot that mentions hardware-accelerated 2D graphics support...

    Trying to win a Photon 4G...

    I hate to do this, but I'm a long-time [H]ardForumer and I'm callin' in a favor. I need votes. I'm second place in a contest for a Photon 4G. I'm already on Sprint so this would be a sweet prize. If you have a sec, vote for me, Entry #3, at...

    Telephony resources

    Hey folks, I need a crash course in non-IP Telephony in the hopes of netting a position that might be opening up at work. It'd still be primarily sys admin work but a background in telephony is what they're looking for. I don't have it; but neither does any of the other potentials really, so I'm...

But hey, I know some of you guys on this forum have seen me post, and hopefully I do a decent job pointing people in the right direction most of the time. Didn't want to drop this into a "more appropriate" forum since this is pretty much the only...

    Fixed, but why? Windows XP / Vista P2P networking issue

    Ok folks, I figured out a solution to this problem last night but I'm trying to figure out why my fix worked. I'm currently studying for my CCNA (well, actually CCENT since I'm still on ICND1), so for the sake of study I was hoping if someone can better explain why this problem happened. I'm...

    CCNA study: hardware recommendations?

    EDIT - Yeah, whoops, there's a sticky on this... doh! Nevermind... Hey folks, I'm studying for my CCNA and I'm looking at picking up some cheap networking hardware to do some experimenting and lab work with. I've been browsing eBay looking for good deals, but I'm not entirely sure what I...

    Computers and women; can't live with, can't live without

    This isn't a question about anything, and it doesn't even really fit all that well into the Operating Systems forum category. But I just wanted to recount an experience of mine and gripe a little bit about the unfairness of it all. I'm a computer repair guy in my spare time, and I advertise...

    Free online Certification training advice

    Hey folks. About time I got my ass certified, so I'm working on training myself on some downtime at work. I'm looking at fairly entry level certs, Network+, Security+, MSCDT, etc. I am however interested in finding resources for MSCSA and MSCSE certs as well, as I'm going to push hard towards...

    Troubleshooting a client issue: IE and 3rd party application download files corrupt

    Hi guys. I'm a Computer Science student and I do computer repair in my spare time. I've run into a problem and I'm stumped. Maybe one of you guys will be able to figure this out. A client came to me with a laptop that has a strange issue. He's been using Vista Service Pack 1 and IE7 and when...
