    Keep device hot?

    Hey all, whenever my tablet's LCD gets to cold it starts doing some weird shit which makes the tablet unusable. I just put it up next to a heater/vent for around 10 seconds and that fixes it for a while but I don't always have one around. Is there any way to keep an Android somewhat hot without...

    Gamestick-$20 at GameStop

    GameStop has had Gamesticks for $20 for a while now. They're Android sticks that come with a controller, equipped with a dual core CPU and Mali 400 Graphics. You can install CFW on them and sideload apps. The controller is pretty bad but if you wanted to you can use the controller as a gamepad...

    Good USB Dual Tuner for $70 +/-?

    Hey all, I'm looking to help my parents cut cable. Right now I'm stuck on funding a tuner card that works with an antenna. I would just get them a HVR-950Q as that seems to be a popular tuner card but as said in the title, I would like a dual tuner so they can record two programs at once. I...

    I was wondering if I could use the Blu Diva X,, on T-Mobile? Thanks. To me it looks like T-Mobile works but roams on the 850 band, and works on the 1900 band, and the phone has both. Correct me if Im wrong.

    No LEDs, board dead?

    Hey everybody, I can get a Asus P7P55D-E Pro for a great deal. But apparently, no LEDs turn on when the board has no CPU/RAM. Does this mean the board is dead? Or is it just because there's no CPU and RAM? BTW theres no way for the seller to test it with a CPU since he doesn't have one I guess...

    Best headphones for $200 +/-?

    I'm sorry, as I'm sure you get these types of threads a LOT. But I'm just gonna create a new one, since all the threads I've found didn't ask exactly what I'm looking for: a pair of 'phones for $200 (would prefer around $150, am okay with up to $250 if it's really worth it), good for electronica...

    Smartwatches with older phones?

    I am thinking of getting a Evo 4G (because of Freedom Pop), but I REALLY want a smart watch. I've done. A little bit of research, and I can't tell. All I've seen is "Any phone with 4.3+". Now, I can get a 4.3 ROM for the Evo, so that's not a issue. What I'm worried about is the Bluetooth (or...

    Lion code won't activate on Windows

    Unlimited plan $40 and under?

    4K for Xbox 360?

    I was wondering, should I get a 4K monitor for my Xbox 360? I can get a really good deal on one, so dont worry about price. Will games look any better at 4K on console, or exactly the same as 1080/720p?

    Why are 120Hz TVs better?

    I know why a 120Hz monitor is better then a 60Hz one, depending on the person you will notice smoother motion in games if your system is capable of getting 120 FPS. But why would you want a 120Hz TV? Movies are only 24 FPS, and most console games don't go above 30 FPS.

    Good settings for R9 290 with Watch Dogs

    What's after Modern UI?

    This is of course all going to be speculation, but what do you guys think comes after Modern (Metro)? I assume Winodws 9 will use Modern, as will Windows Phone 9, but what comes after that? More Modern (I doubt this, MS used Aero for Vista and 7, so I assume Modern is the same), or something...

    Minecraft lag with 770

    I'm getting anywhere from 20 FPS to 55 with my GTX 770 on Minecraft. It makes no sense at all, this GPU can max out Crysis 3 with a similar frame rate. It's all of a sudden, to. Originally, I was constantly getting 500FPS without VSync. I got so agitated, I even reinstalled Windows, but it...

I will be getting a new carrier soon for sure, but in the meantime, I need to be able to use my current number and phone, to make calls. I use Android btw. I need to be...

    Windows 8 Reboot loop

    My install of W8 keeps rebooting. It says 100 percent complete, goes to 30 percent, then says restarting and restarts. Been doing this for the last 20 minutes. Maybe it just has a ton of updates, but shouldn't it tell me how far it is through (eg. Update 7/15)? Edit: It stopped. But still, why...

    Boot to Start on W8?

    It seems with a recent update, Windows 8 is automatically booting to the desktop. This is a feature requested by a lot of people, but I am one of the few that likes the Start screen. So, if anybody could tell me how to boo to Start, I'd appreciate it.

    Dim LEDs?

    I googled, but I couldn't find an anwser. My case LEDs (Tempest 410) are incredibly bright. Not a problem during the day, or not even at night when I'm going to sleep. But, when I put it in sleep mode, it blinks. And that keeps me from going to sleep. A dimmer should work fine, but I don't know...

    I'm sorry, I honestly had no idea where to put this thread :o I bought a GTX 770 ACX from Newegg 3 days back, came by UPS today. The GPU should come with Assassins Creed IV, but it didn't. No code in the box, in the package, nothing. So, what should I do? Did the code actually come by e-mail...

    Mantle Capabilities?

    Everybody's going crazy on how Mantle has a way lower overhead then DX, therefore using less GPU power and better for lower end GPUs and CPUs and increasing FPS even in higher end ones, blah blah. But what about the capabilities? The fire, the physics, the smoke, etc? DX gets better every...

    8 Pins for 12?

    I have a Crosshair V Formula and (soon) a 8350. But, my CX600M only has 4+4 Pin 12V (that's what its called, right?) power. The board has a single 4 pin connector and a 8 Pin. I have one of the 4+4 Pin powers in the 4 Pin, and one in the 8 pin. Is this fine for a 8350?

    After Coins Crash, Will Mining Be Profitable

    Are Micro SD Cards worth as much as SD Cards?

    A bit of a stupid question, but let's say you have two 16 GB midrange SD and Micro SD cards. Which would cost more? I'm asking this because I have a 16GB Sandsik Ultra SD card and want to trade for a Micro SD card but don't know if I can.
