    Nook Color Question

    Unfortuantely, not at this time, if ever. I suspect that B&N want to have some exclusive content that is only availble for the native Nook Color app, not "Nook for Android" app. Otherwise, why make the Nook Color when you could just promote someone else's Android tablet in your store, like...

    Nook Color Question

    I have one of these and I've set it up with CM7 Nightly with OC kernal on the eMMC (not using the SD boot method). When you use the method that uses the ClockWork restore mod, it'll have a an opportunity for you to create a backup of the existing BN 1.2 OS. IF you do that, you can always...

    iPad 2 GPU benchmarks, destorys Xoom Tablet

    Love my Nook Color. Nice that one can boot off the miniSD to test out Honeycomb, or the earlier Gingerbread and not have to replace the original OS of the device so that warranty coverage is still present.

    Just got the Nook Color. In one word...Awesome

    I also love my Nook Color. I'm not actually rooted as the new 1.2 software upgrade is doing what I need at this time. I'm also watching the BN App store to see how that progresses. Best part is that as the device boots from the miniSD slot, I've been trying the CM7 Gingerbread to also...

    OOMA da bomb!

    +1 for Ooma. Although I picked up the Ooma Telo instead. Really happy with the quality as well.

    Am I over-using my router?

    Just curious.. While the Ooma is supported behind your router, the recommendation is to have it between your ISP's modem and your own router. I.e. ISP modem -------> Ooma (internet) | Ooma (home network) ------------------->WRT54G. The Ooma peforms it's own QoS that is active only...

    Anybody use MagicJack?

    +1 for Ooma. I'd picked one up from my local Costco and I"ve ported my home phone number over to it. I've been very satisfied and can recommend it too.

    Antec 600 (Chinese website)

    Not only did I like it, but I bought it. The larger fans can spin slow and are not that loud, much quiter than my older all aluminum case with 90mm fans. That and my CPU's temp dropped during OC from 52C max to 47C.

    Q6600 vs i7 920

    Frankly, I'm amazed about the arguing going on here. As I had understood from the original poster, who neglected to let us know if $ is a factor, if upgrading from a Q6600 to an i7 would be a good upgrade. As many pointed out, without getting mean, the i7 does have a nice boost on several...

    Q6600 vs i7 920

    Sorry folks, both your Q6600 and i7 is totally PWNED by my iPhone! And Yes that is with Adobe Photoshop for the PC as well :) Seriously, I'm mocking and yet I'm completely honest. I can run your Photoshop on my iPhone and outrun your system. :) How.... WIth the Citrix iPhone...

    HSF for Q6600?

    I love my OCZ Vendetta 2 HSF combination. Like the Xigmatek it uses direct heat pipe interface to the CPU. The product ocassionally shows up for sale less than the Xigmatek (was when I purchased it), so keep an eye open. Here's an interesting review where they stack it against both an...

    ATI Killing Nvidia: Nvidia say Q4 of fiscal 2009 expected to decline 40 to 50 percent

    I think you have hit the market that will be what carries both vendors forward for a while, however don't count nVIDIA out yet. While ATI is doing very well here in terms of the Wii for example, yet the graphics are nothing to jump around about. Xbox 360 does use ATI as well but does not...

    Zune 3 Software

    What do you think of the games feature? I'm really looking forward to additional game titles. With all the new features tacked on, it's really a great competition to the iPod nano.

    iPod classic vs. The Competition

    Love my Zune! The quality of the sound is amazing and the features (including wireless access to Marketplace, tagging songs for purchase after hearing them on the RDS FM tuner, etc..) When the word gets out about the features of the Zune since 3.0 of the software, Apple better watch out.

    Beat me to posting the link. You may want to edit the topic so that casual browsers see it's related to the Amiga.

    Modular PSU - use the right cables!

    What with LTO4 tape libraries at lower prices than that restore, what is the reason that backups were not provided for? Tape backups being ignored after the lessons of 9/11 should cost one $20K.

    Pictures of X58 Mobo

    That's the new MegaBass heatpipe subwoofer. Foxconn found out how to convert thermal energy to audible soundwaves and even controll it. Think of it as your new motherboard based subwoofer for your 5.1 setup. Need more bass? Just overclock your board and the increased thermal energy...

    Crossfire Question

    Easy enough for you to test... Just yank out one card and see what the results change to during game play. That's the answer to the question. Once you determine this, come back and report.

    Does X48 have any drawbacks besides price compared to P45?

    As stated a current ~5% performance advantage may not be sufficient for many to plunk down the difference. However, I do have an X48 board and I'm quite satisfied. I'm "hoping" that the next generation of GPU's will show a marked increase in that performance advantage. But that is all...

    X48 or P45?

    It really comes down to "longevity" and used in a CrossFireX configuration. How long do you expect to hold onto your new MB and processor? Is it likely to be more than a single GPU generation? The reason is, the P45 is the start of the bottle neck (albiet ~5%) in this generations version...

    Physics processing vs Dx10.1

    D*mn! :mad: Well, at least nVIDIA still promises to allow the development for PhysX on other GPU's. Guess it'll just be a while longer yet then.

    Physics processing vs Dx10.1

    Both will likely "provide" it. It's already been shown that using PhysX with ATI hardware isn't as hard as one would think:,5764.html

    best looking motherboard of all time?

    Intel gets the colors right with their BoneTrail and BoneTrail 2 boards (X38 and X48 chipset based boards). I've one of these and they perform pretty good. HardOCP didn't rate them well, but I bring up the issue in terms of how it was related and then how the Gigabyte board was rated here...

    Very warm Q6600!! Need fan/heatsink opinions please.

    Save yourself some cabbage and get an OCZ Vendetta 2 as well. In fact not only is it less expensive, ultra quite, but it actually rivals the lapped and pressure modded TRUE. Proof, the Vendetta 2 vs TRUE vs HDT-S1283 shootout...

    Recommend a PS for my build please

    I've found it! Turns out that Zalman has a redesigned secondary stage, and added a number of capacitors in parallel to filter the 12V section. You can see this difference in the two shots taken from their perspective reviews. Image from OCZ...

    Which TV tuner card has HDMI output that is good?

    The HDMI connection would be from your video card. If you've an older GPU that has a DVI connection, you can purchase a DVI-HDMI adapter (albiet it only passes video and no audio). New cards, like the ATI 4850 and 4870 have included DVI-HDMI adapters that some how have the audio passed as well.

    Yep, that's a good review. I'll retract my opinion of the ZM750-HP then. Here's PcPer's ZM600-HP review as well for contrast:

    Recommend a PS for my build please

    Guess I can't argue too much here, as I don't know "exactly" what was changed. All I can do if you'd like is to post each and every PSU review for the Zalman that I've found that show the same "super stable" rails. While it's possible each received a "golden sample" the diverse number of...

    Recommend a PS for my build please

    Not all epsilons are alike however. If you click on the JonnyGURU link for the Zalman review I had in my previous post, he's amazed at the stability of the rails. Obviously Zalman did have some design changes added to the secondary stage that cleaned up the ripple considerably. In fact...

    New X-Fi Titanium spotted @ Newegg, $99, no Fatal1ty

    Please realize that OpenAL isn't like OpenGL. Sure it's a "somewhat" open standard, but it's still a "Creative" standard. Time will tell how it's embraced by software developers. Utilizing a more "standard" API like DirectSound/DirectSound3d allows for easier ports to XBOX360 or vice...

    Core i7 memory question

    You sure about that on socket 1366? As tripple channel, wouldn't three dimms be required to even POST? So it may not be just a MAX performance issue, but a POST issue. Can someone confirm this on current engineering release hardware, not just speculate?

    It has to be asked....

    It's getting better for a Core system using an existing LGA775 setup than ever before. Prices are dropping, 45nm processors are poppin! For games, ironically the newer penryn procs will actually outpeform the first gen of Core i7 setups. Depends on the "some apps". Again the...

    Longevity of LGA 1366?

    I don't think that it will last as long as the 775 did. Primarily the design of the 775 didn't have to change as much as the memory controller was an external function. This allowed for a more static connection between the CPU and the MCH in terms of design. As for the new CPU platform...
