    Why doesn't Nokia - Windows Phone uses retina display?

    Yeah, but those old Android phones arent flagships for the OS releasing in 2012. They are old phones that released and were flagships 13 months ago. And the iPhone 4 released over a year ago as well at a much higher res. WP7 devices don't exist in a vacuum, the Lumia has to compete for...

    Galaxy Nexus vs HTC Rezound

    Rezound is nice, but HTC needs to learn a thing or two about battery life. Stuff a 2050mAh battery in the Rezound and I would at least consider it. But Id likely still go with the Nexus. Im sorry, the absolute blacks on AMOLED screens is addictive. I cant go back Kate, we cant go BAAAAACK!

    How did you feel about Nokia's announcement?

    Didnt see anything that would make me consider their phones nor the OS yet, still. OS in its infancy, still needs time to grow, screen sizes to small, no FFC? What about NFC and SD? All of that left me going 'meh'. The only thing I liked was the actual design of their phones. But until I...

    Android's Andy Rubin is deluded

    Oh wow.... yeah, that looks absolutely fine. That's crazy. They definitely held it back just to sell phones, it appears to be running just fine.

    Who cares about iPhone5 ? It's outdated already

    Lots of people need ease of use. The Iphone line tends to release with tech that isn't on the bleeding edge. That's a huge downside for me, but for a lot of people it isn't. Some need flat out ease of use. So yeah a screen with a bunch of icons works for some. In a way it kind of reminds me of...

    October Nexus Prime rumors

    Galaxy S2 is roughly 4.3, and as mentioned, with ICS's lack of capacitive buttons the screens will be more edge to edge, allowing the fitting of a larger screen, yet retain the size of a 4.3 phone. Phone is the same size, screen is just larger. The rumored prime has a dual core 1.5GHZ...

    Trying to like Android?

    Firstly. The Captivate is moderately old in terms of mobile phone tech (the tech moves at an astonishing pace) but its not THAT old, however it wasnt really a great phone even when it was brand new. IMO the choice of phone here was not a good one. You arent going to get anything surprising out...

    intel retail edge paying cash for someone that works

    Damn shame it takes a pay stub, Id be all over that if it didnt. A guy told me about a deal he got on a chip that blew my mind, and he said it was through the retail edge.

    Case for first build?

    Sooo weird man, I just did my first build early this month with the Storm Sniper. I can tell you that it is easy to build in. Alot of space and you will be able to see and reach everything quickly. Theres a lot of wires for the fan controllers but they are clearly labeled "POWER IN" and all you...

    6870 Performs Poorly While Playing WoW/Watching a Vid

    What are the collateral effect of doing this? Will my card run hotter than it does now if I make this change? I personally dont mind that the card spins down sometime (I just turned off hardware accel in flash) but if I could turn it off, with no ill effects to my card, I will.

    6870 Performs Poorly While Playing WoW/Watching a Vid

    I have the same card and everyone here is right. I personally haven't ever gotten any stuttering in wow, but Ill notice the framerate literally cut itself down to 30fps and just stay there. Turning off hardware acceleration in flash videos solved that for me though. I havent had any issues...

    What Do You Want from Windows 8?

    I havent felt the need to stop background processes while gaming since building my new rig. A quad core, 6GB or more of ram allows for god only knows how much multitasking. I virus scan, run 50 firefox tabs, 8 of which with SC2 replays loading on youtube, and play Games all without even a hitch...

    Corsair Graphite Series 600T mid-tower gaming case

    Really wish I had did my recent build with this case. I went with the sniper because Newegg charges another 25 dollars shipping on the 600T. But I hurt deep down whenever I see someone mention this case, I wanted it for my build so bad but couldn't afford it.

    Wow Question - For Cataclsym pre-orderer's only

    I personally would go for the larger option. 60GB will fit the 22 or so GB Cata and your Win7 install fine, but.... If you go back and reinstall from your Wrath DVD right now, you'll notice that at the start of wrath, the full install for the game was 10 or so gigs. It has ballooned to...

    FPS issues WoW.

    ^^^ Well it doesnt matter. Fact is, MMO's are one of the few types of games that will have ANY benefit from an SSD with their massive amounts of data streaming. I run WoW off of my C300, not because it will make some staggering difference (although it is clearly noticeable no matter what...

    When is the DIABLO III coming out?

    As long as they make it properly utilize multicore processors it can come in 2013 for all I care.

    Why no Ghz progress?

    This, I know very little about this so I just a few months ago felt the same, wondering why the clocks weren't rising. But a friend tried his best to explain to me, and from what I gather, as long as the instructions per clock are able to increase we shouldn't give to much of a crap about the...

    AMD 6850 and 6870 released, October 18

    And leave myself capped for upgrade options? No thx. Ill take the 6870 now, and add another 6870 to it down the line as an upgrade. I almost bit on the 470 though, Nvidia dropped the price on it HARD. But once those reviews hit, the 6870 runs too cool, and it neck and neck with the 470. I...

    AMD 6850 and 6870 released, October 18

    6870 is cheaper than I thought it'd be. 239 on Newegg, and with that performance, low temps and microscopic power draw I just went ahead and bought one here about an hour ago. Newegg probably doesn't even have the cards yet lol.

    AMD 6850 and 6870 released, October 18

    Then that sounds like your personal expectation being out of whack, Im pretty sure noone expected the sole purpose of these cards to be to drop the price on a 460. That may have been what you wanted, but dont project onto others if it looks like it wont happen, its not AMD's job to lower the...

    AMD 6850 and 6870 released, October 18

    For those of us planning to build soon, and who might be considering a 5850, should we be waiting and getting this 6870 instead? I'm quick to admit I don't understand a lot of this stuff, just wondering if I could spend the same amount I'm planning to, and manage to get a slight performance...
