    Steam Controller $5

    Tempting tempting....hmmmm...wish they'd specify that it doesn't put your games on the tv, it's just a normal controller. A little misleading advertising.

    AMD AM2+/AM3 HSF removal

    THIS. I never boot my machines up when I remove the HSF. Just twist it a few times back and forth until it breaks free. Works better when cold.

    Newegg $25 off $100 dollar purchase

    It did that for me, too. You have to calculate shipping first. Then apply the code. For some reason, that fixed it for me.

    CrazyPC Going Out of Business Sale

    Was going to order the Scythe Katana 3 to upgrade from my stock AMD HSF, but they want $10 shipping. That negates the 50% off since I can get it from Amazon for $23 shipped 2nd day air. EDIT: nevermind, it's not Prime eligible. So, it's still the best deal. Just can't justify it. I'm cheap.

    AMD Athlon II X2 210 for Windows Home Server "Vail"

    I thought I'd chime in. My server specs in sig; runs great. ~400-500 mbps over gigabit. EDIT: Server specs for the blind: AMD Sempron LE-1150 (45w single core 2.0GHz 256KB L2 - basically the second slowest "normal" AM2 chip AMD ever made). Gigabyte GAM68M-S2 2GB Patriot DDR2-800 Windows...

    Apple to end free iPhone case program September 30

    Maybe it's just me, but I got an iPhone 4 and used it without a case for the first week I had it. Never had a dropped call. I've still never put anyone on mute or anything either. In fact, it's been the best phone I've ever owned. Maybe I'm lucky.

    FCC Now Defines Broadband As 4 Mbps

    I have FIOS 25/15. When I go visit my parents, they have Uverse, but the lowest internet they have, which is 3 mbps. It's like going back to dial up again. What? You can't download updates from Windows update @ 2 MB/s???? It'll take all freakin day! :P

    BFGTech Exits Graphics

    NOOOOO!!!!!!! Thanks to their lifetime warranty, I haven't paid for a GPU since 2003. Maybe that's why they went under? I started with a TI4200, it crapped out so I got upgraded to a 5900XT-OC. That fan died, so it then I got a 6800 vanilla. That lasted me for a while. They then had a...

    iAd is stupid too. Hey devs, you were incorporating ugly, yet profitable ads in your free apps. Now, sacrifice 60%of the revenues to us and be forced into this ad system that your must force your programs to accept. Otherwise your apps will be rejected. If I was a dev, I'd be pissed. It's a...
