    Tech Support Advice of the Day

    What irritates me about this, is that this customer asked for a personal opinion from this supervisor, off-the-record, and then basically posted it in front of the world as coming from a Dell supervisor. This is why when a customer asks you "what you would do personally", you tell them the same...

    FedEx Response to Monitor Throwing Video

    I at least give them credit for responding to it. This is the only way they could respond to it anyways... What else could they say?

    Video Game Awards Don’t Need to Change, YOU Do!

    Just to clarify for people who don't read the article, Jim is basically saying that the VGAs are horrible, but you shouldn't care because they're not really aimed at most gamers, but the kind of person who would be watching Spike TV in the first place.

    If Quake Was Made Today

    Brilliant... and sadly true. I remember playing Quake back in the day on my brother's Pentium 133mhz with a Matrox Mystique. Good times.

    Corsair Giveaway - Force Series™ GT 180GB Solid-State Hard Drive

    My PC takes about 3-4 minutes to boot up from scratch. Also, I can tell my HDD is a bottleneck in my system. An SSD would really speed my system up!

    Battlefield 3 Open Beta

    Yeah, there's been some funny glitches that I've seen. Teammates prone inside rocks or the ground, spawning on a teammate and ending up UNDER ground, spending 10 seconds tying to jump over a simple object, getting shot through stone walls, graphical flashes through the entire screen. getting...

    Battlefield 3 Open Beta

    It is indeed the same keys as BC2 for chatting: "J" for chatting to All "K" for chatting to your Team "L" for chatting to your Squad There was no indication of this, so I can't blame you for not knowing how to do it. I played a lot of BC2, so I just instinctively tried them and they work.

    Battlefield 3 Open Beta

    I just tried it on my PC. Works pretty good. I was able to play at Ultra settings (minus AA or Vsync), and it ran pretty well. Well enough for me at least. Hopefully some more tweaking on their end and some additional updated, optimized drivers will boost performance even more.

    Must See Video of the Day

    Whoever worked on these is obviously very talented in making CG videos. That said, I don't really "get" these artsy videos, and was extremely bored watching it. But I was impressed with the quality of the work.

    Porsche Doesn’t Care About Video Game People

    This kind of thing can happen, and probably will even more as these racing games become more and more realistic. These new games allow you to not only drive the car and get the feel of it (as best you can by driving a video games, which many have said to be a pretty accurate representation), but...

    TomTom Sold User Data To Police for Speed Traps

    I think it's great that once they found out how police were using their data to setup speedtraps, they are now going to prevent that from happening. Anonymous data from these GPS units doesn't bother me at all. As he said, none of the information points back to specific users' GPS. And they're...

    Auzentech X-Meridian 7.1 2G Sound Card Review @ [H]

    My Auzentech experience: I bought a Auzentech Forte about a year ago, but found out there were uncorrectable flaws in it that I just couldn't live with. I have a set of Microsoft Digital Sound System 80 PC speakers (analog out), Audio Technica ATH A700 headphones (mentioned in the review)...

    Titanium HD Question regarding headphones

    I had this same trouble with the Auzentech Forte, which also uses the X-fi chip. I talked with support and they said you can't just get sound through one at a time. It comes through both no matter what. It's part of the reason I returned it and decided not to get an X-fi card.

    Save old worn out ATH700 earpads with a coating of Spray On Electrical tape?

    When my ATH-A700s started to flake a bit, I just contacted AT's support and they shipped me out some replacement pads at no cost. I had them in 2 days! Now I have a free spare for when the flaking gets too bad for me to ignore.

    Which card for Physx?

    I've tried the Mafia 2 demo with a 470 with a 240 (physx). If I remember right, the 240 wasn't very taxed... but my framerates were still pretty bad. Not sure if that was an isolated problem with the demo or not. When I turned PhysX off, it ran perfect. With it on, I was lucky to get 24fps, even...
