    Wow, talk about timing. I'll start looking for store links, etc.

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    Okay so this case is EXACTLY what I've been looking for, for a few years now. I hate how all the other small cases that fit a normal video card are all cubes that still take up too much room on a desk. Since I'm obviously too late for the kickstarter, when do you think I could reasonably buy...

    Microsoft Marks Down Surface Pro Tablet by $100

    Doh hit reply too soon. I'm a highly mobile IT guy and it's basically a godsend. If you've ever had to walk a multiple story datacenter doing audits with an excel spreadsheet then you realize the value of this (even an RT would've worked well).

    Microsoft Marks Down Surface Pro Tablet by $100

    I held off on getting a Surface Pro but then had a chance to buy one used for $600. I love it, wish I hadn't waited so long.

    This is very tempting for an untangle box, the dual NICs are nice.

    Don't choose full disk wipe unless you want it to take a really long time or you want to seriously cover your tracks not just delete data.

    Surface Pro Anticipation

    I'm glad to have the choice personally. Trying to use the desktop with touch is exactly why the previous generations failed. Now I can use the desktop the way I always have but also have a touch interface that's awesome. Later we'll see where it goes, but metro is light enough and easy enough to...

    Borderlands + Borderlands 2 $24

    Does anyone know if this can be plugged into steam or do you have to use a gamefly client always?

    I know this type of stuff and I'm just a random nerd. Reviewers should know and try this type of thing too. Instead they just loop movies nonstop. Wouldn't it be great if reviewers actually gave you inside AND outside figures and knowledge to make our decisions on? Instead it's "well we...

    How are you repeatedly missing this. I'm talking about progress, evolution, change, and you are like doo dee doo credit cards aren't TV!!. To do the HDMI workaround I'd have to buy a laptop wouldn't I, and then move my 5.1 stereo from my Xbox to the TV and then back again after. Just because...

    Gah ignore that post ^^^^^ I'm manning up and taking care of it myself. I have a cable subscription, quite an expensive one with a DVR, but I wasn't aware of the show until it had already aired several episodes. I AM paying for it (Hulu too), but some idiot still managed to fuck it up...

    The severity is not the similarity. It's the fact that times change and you have to change with them. Come on I figured that'd be pretty obvious.

    I want to start watching the new show The Americans, which is in the middle of a season. That means it's not going to hit DVD for awhile. It's not on Hulu on my Xbox though which is all I have attached to my TV, it's available web-only which means I'd have to gather my wife and I around my PC...

    I could have some fun and say it wasn't women's right to vote back then, but then times changed and we all wised up. We are in that time now for digital media. The way it is right now is just flat out done wrong and it needs to change. Everyone has changed and is ready, and in some ways we...

    Is Clover Field an "able" replacement for my Entry-Level Notebook from circa 2008.

    Honestly how accurate is that portrayal? Brute force CPU power isn't really the only factor in terms of how snappy or fast a system performs. Lots gets done by the GPU now, the chipsets have more bandwidth/interconnects these days, etc. I don't know what they use for criteria, but it seems...

    Surface Pro Anticipation

    Yeah technically you could call them comparable in a way, because a Surface Pro with keyboard is within a couple hundred bucks BUT you also get more cool stuff for that couple hundred. Longer battery, larger screen, better keyboard, etc.

    Or if you just don't do any of those upgrades, you still get the same performance as the surface pro with the helix chassis.

    Is Clover Field an "able" replacement for my Entry-Level Notebook from circa 2008.

    I believe the HD4000 onboard video is actually "not bad" considering. http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-4000.69168.0.html Scroll down for benchmarks. I imagine it would be fine for what you'd want, after all it seems your 3D needs take a back seat to your desire for portability...

    Surface RT just got a whole lot better

    I was just linked to this, it looks like a pretty amazing direction. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2092348 Lots of useful programs being recompiled and ported over to RT.

    Low cost ultrabooks (or similar)

    Honestly man, this notebook is serious bang for buck: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/pd/ASUS-VivoBook-X202E-Touchscreen/productID.257339400/topseller.true It pretty much covers all the standard features (Bluetooth, USB 3.0, HDMI) AND it has a touchscreen. It's probably the...

    Just bought a Asus Vivobook. Anyone have one? Have a few Windows 8 questions.

    Surface Pro Anticipation

    People pay all sorts of money to try to turn their iPads into productive tablets, but they can never be a true proper productivity device in general. No office, no USB ports, no x86 programs, and for the most part unwieldy keyboards. The Surface Pro isn't perfect, but it definitely is going to...

    I'm sorry but Metro snap is easily one of the best windows 8 features for tablets. I can't tell you how often I'd love to multitask on my phone or Nexus 7 after having used Win8 on a tablet.

    Surface Pro Anticipation

    With only 2GB of RAM you will also multitask less, however having used an older tablet with only 2GB of RAM I can say Win8 does a pretty good job still with regular office type stuff. Honestly, clovertrail right now is the sweet spot in terms of battery life, performance, and size. The Acer...

    Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 to Share App Development

    Every single one of those is still in Win8 (I even mentioned the pin to taskbar), and I never stated that picture showed the maximum. It was just demonstrating the location on the start menu. It's not pointless at all when there are improvements all throughout the OS, they take something...

    Surface Pro Anticipation

    You simply cannot squeeze more battery life from a certain size battery. Surface Pro has a small physical battery. It doesn't matter how optimized it is, that's going to make it suffer. If you need that much battery life then you should probably go back to a proper ultrabook with a physically...

    The Wii U only had like three consoles in every store I called on launch day, but it had what 500,000 preorders? I think these days preorders/shipping get most of the stock, people don't go to brick and mortar as much as they used to.

    Honestly I used a Surfact RT in my lap without issue for hours at an airport. Sure it's not as stable as a regular laptop because the weight isn't on the bottom, but it was hardly difficult. I suppose the angle of the chair might matter, but the keyboard does act as a stabilizer albeit a light...
