    Microsoft May Limit The Number of Windows 8 Editions

    It's already been said in this thread an many others that OSX costs $30 to buy, but Apple makes so much on their hardware that it can cover development costs. They aren't making much if any money off $30 for their OS and certainly not enough to fund the whole business. Also, I don't know why...

    Microsoft May Limit The Number of Windows 8 Editions

    I don't think windows 8 for arm is going to be a mainstream release. Just the manufactures of arm devices will get it. Much of the code base for windows 8 for arm is not the same as x86/64 windows 8 so Microsoft could most likely ditch 32 bit without impacting arm...

    Recharge Your Cell Phone With a Touch?

    Yes, but you are missing the point. They can call this green energy and overhype their results to get hundreds of millions of dollars of federal money to start a company and continue "green energy research".

    Online Role-Playing Can Zap Marital Happiness

    I agree up to a point. I'm totally comfortable with research done by an institution with an agenda as long as they neutralize alternative hypotheses that would be destructive to their findings. I don't know if this research has been peer reviewed. I think it is being published today, but all I...

    Online Role-Playing Can Zap Marital Happiness

    I'm Mormon. I love video games and so does my whole family. In fact, most of my local congregation likes video games. Also, not at FndTheRver, but what does the study being done by BYU (Mormons) have to do with the results?

    GIGABYTE X79 Motherboard Spy Pics

    Big heat sinks won't be necessary for these boards. The ivy bridge parts that will go in them are only going to have a TDP of 77 watts. Overclocking them might get you to 130 watts which still doesn't require a MASSIVE cooler to cool.
