    Intel Beefs up North America Channel

    Not only is their press release garbage, but check out their example "recipe": A recipe is a set of instructions on preparing a dish. As in food. Not even a starving kid in Darfur would want to eat a Symantec product. As to their...

    8-bit Left 4 Dead

    This isn't an eight bit game, that executable is a Win32 binary. Shame for misrepresenting as an 8-bit game, shame for making it Windows only (where's the linux version? where's the source code?), shame for that bullshit download link where you have to sign up for some phishing site to get the...

    Can't get TI-89 Titanium connected to Windows 7 x64 or Vista x64

    And TI-Connect installer opens the readme in Internet Explorer instead of the system default browser. TI is such a shitty company, won't support their software on modern computers, browser discrimination, where does it end?

    Why does TI think they can get away without producing signed drivers and tested applications for 64 bit Windows?

    Online Gambling May Become Legal in US Again

    If we leave people free to do anything they want, they might make the wrong decision. We have to make the wrong decisions illegal so people will only choose to do what we want, which is not gamble.

    Ghost Busters Gameplay and Testing - Infernal Engine VELOCITY Physics

    You can tell from the video that they're using Microsoft Visual Studio. I probably won't buy this game just for that reason. No one should ever use microsoft tools, it encourages writing programs that only work on windows.

    ASUS P6T @ [H]

    Looks like Newegg dropped the free shipping and jacked up the price by $10. I'd remove the link to their site, they don't deserve the promotion if they're going to bait and switch.

    Security Breach Results In Data Sent to Iran

    Listen to all of you idiots circlejerking. The real problem here is the myth of security through obscurity. None of the leaked information should make any difference to anyone, and if it does, there's a much bigger problem than the fact the information was leaked.

    If they had upgraded the wiring and motor for the increased voltage it wouldn't have melted. I don't know why they didn't figure that out if they were able to build the counter circuit.

    Anyone used Intel's Warranty Program?

    Wow. I honestly have never had an Intel processor fail under warranty, unless it was due to my own stupidity. I can't imagine but Intel standing by their product 100%. I'll be interested to know how this comes out.

    How long will my notebook last?

    I bought a Thinkpad X61 with the same processor and RAM as you, and I plan to use it for three years, but I don't plan to upgrade it until it no longer serves my needs. A three year life cycle is good for any computer, in my opinion. Of course, the X series is an ultraportable, and mine is...

    Please do I set my DFI NF4 Ultra-D PCI-E jumper from single to SLI ?

    intel p4 540 vs 630

    You missed the point. It's not that people want dual core, thats what Intel and AMD have decided to sell. Even if Moore's law holds true, it will take some time for clock speeds to start increasing again, and they need to continue increasing percieved performance so they have products to sell.
