    NVIDIA GeForce 295.73 WHQL Drivers Released

    After installing 295.73 (dual 460's in SLI), my contrast or something is messed up. Black looks more like gray, and no amount of fiddling with the Brightness/Contrast/Gamma settings in the Nvidia control panel seems to get it back to normal. Any ideas?

    Sprint Nexus S..

    Alright, thanks for the answers. I don't think it's worth the effort. I thought maybe since the iPhone is activated via SIM card, other newish phones would work the same way. It'd be nice to be able to switch between iOS and Android on a whim.

    Sprint Nexus S..

    I recently bought an iPhone 4S on Sprint. If I were to buy a Sprint Nexus S 4G (from Craigslist or eBay or whatever), would it just work if I stuck the SIM card from my iPhone in it? I'm not sure how CDMA works these days as I've been a GSM phone user in the past.

    How do I turn off the internal speakers on my new work computer?

    Grab some old broken headphones, cut off the plug and stick that in the headphone jack. Or just leave your normal headphones plugged in all the time.

    Best SSD for $100?

    I've seen a number of 40 GB SSDs for $90-110ish, but I have no idea what to get. Newegg has the X25-V, but Best Buy has an X25-M for the same price.. Is that X25-M from Best Buy my best option, or is there something non-Intel that would be better for the same price? Any advice would be...

    i5 HSF question: pre-applied thermal paste?

    Slow transfer speeds with 802.11n+GigE router

    Today I bought a Netgear WNR3500L because I'm sick and tired of the slow transfer speeds I'm getting with my aging WRT54GS. My Windows 7 computer connected via a wired connection to the router is reporting the connection speed as 1Gbps. It's running an FTP server. When I try to download a...

    Thoughts on Oblivion

    I had a hard time getting started, but once I bought the Frostcrag Spire addon, I had a place to stockpile all my items and then it got a lot easier. Not really a strategy, but it helped me. :)

    New MP3 player

    Good choice with the Zune :) I have the 30 GB model, and it's wonderful. As for video converting, there are a slew of apps out there than can do the job (such as Xilisoft Zune Video Converter or FormatFactory).
