    The Reason Behind The Windows 10 Name

    They have no choice. Program issues with older apps would be blamed on Microsoft, just as a lot of the Windows Vista issues started from sloppy drivers or older unupdated programs. It would be a PR nightmare to go forward with it, expecting third parties to update their whole catalog and...

    Crucial Could Release DDR4 Memory Next Month

    It would not really matter too much for the home market, but if prices and density are good, it might matter more for lower end graphics cards, and possibly also for the intergrated graphics chips.

    Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS)

    I got lucky, I was able to track it down for MSRP, at a local walmart. I also luckily was able to snag the wii and gamecube ones recently. Because of Awakening's success I expect those 2's prices to keep going up. Awakening is the best of them however, since it allows more freedom, and...

    We're Not Paying Enough For Apps

    Good applications are worth the money they cost, the problem is that so many of the applications are shovelware, that are not worth the opportunity cost of downloading, installing and trying them.

    I have an android phone, and I plan on getting an iPad 3, the software ecosystem on the apple devices is simply so much better. The high quality stuff on both sets is about the same, however there is just more of it on the apple side.

    Old School Dungeon Crawler on Android

    Yeah, but i beat most of the classics already :D In dosbox a few years ago. The android screen would be pretty cramped playing one of those, if the UI isn't designed for it. Or a game like Wasteland, if possible. :D

    Geek Cash: Star Wars Coins Are Legal Tender

    Well each coin is 1oz of silver, and silver goes for almost 50 dollars a troy ounce on the market, so a good portion of the money is for pure silver. So for the coins themselves, it is 200 dollars, and the silver would sit in your hands, which makes it a little bit better a deal. So a 180...

    The 'Post-PC Era' Might Be Closer Than We Think

    Part of the issue is that any dual core system, an AMD x2 or Intel Core design of 2ghz or better with 2gb ram, will run anything that isn't a modern 3d game. As long as drives or other components don't crash, consumers won't need to upgrade.

    Heroes of Might and Magic

    3 was the best of them, however both 1 and 2 were quite good, thing to remember on HoMM 1, is that it is a dos/win95 era game, can load it up and play in dosbox. Played and own most of the others, however they just don't stack up to 3. Pretty clear and large improvement from 1 to 2, to 3 also.

    Rift: Planes of Telara... looking good! (MMORPG)

    Newbie area is complete junk comapred to the rest of the game. Not sure how they made the 1-5/6 experience is so blah, compared to the first zone. Newbie area is one they should have revamped at some point in beta.

    Who said AMD OpenCL Client was VaporWare?

    Look forward to this, I used to let the system run, but since I got such junk returns with my 5870, i gave up on folding, will have to return and try it when the ati openCL client comes out.

    AMD Radeon HD 6970 and 6950 Video Card Review @ [H]

    Corsair HS1 USB Gaming Headset Review @ [H]

    Bought these last week, as I was tired of my ancient midiland speakers, and intergrated sound card. Disabled my intergrated sound card, junked my speakers, and love this, for either gaming, or using it with vent, or listening to music in hall surround. Definetly worth the 100 if you want some...

    What is the worst and best video card you ever owned?

    Going to include the cards I had when it was my dads computer. Dads computer : Best : ATI VGA wonder 512kb (ISA)- slowish and oldish even in a 486, but it ran stably when every other time we tried to get a graphics card for the p1 90mhz, would crash either in dos mode or windows mode, so...

    Fallout New Vegas fixed yet?

    It's a bethsoft game. They get like 3-4 big patch's, and then you hope the community patch's fix everything. Games sell millions of copies, and they can't bother to fully squash the bugs.

    It has both :D Per the thread i've kept track of on Beyond 3d, It would seem that the pro has 1536(24 SIMD), and the XT has 1920(30 SIMD) So consider yourselves confused.

    Visiontek Warranty, wth

    Hard Disk Crashed, now what?

    the system boots normally, this was my data drive, thankfully. my SSD is my windows drive, and it was able to boot and run normally after unplugging the other drive. So luckily I don't have to goof around with other systems. (no other system in the house can take sata anyways)
