    My Thermaltake Armor A30 Review

    this is the same tired old Tt lanbox from 2006 but they added a fan on top where people used to mod them. its a nightmare to work with because the sides don't come off (only the top), and the PSU over the CPU means you can't even use a decent heat sink. thnx for bumping a year old thread.

    MonoPrice Hacked, CC Info Compromised?

    diablo 3 accounts hacked

    Not everyone lives online, some of us (obviously not you ) actually spend time doing things other than trolling forums. This is the first Blizzard game I have purchased in 10 years and there was no way to know that D3 would degenerate into either using the phone / key fob authenticator or losing...

    Diablo III Hacking?

    wouldn't be surprised if these same people who have had their gear and gold stolen also installed a .dll injector map hack. Of note also if you read the 20+ page on the official D3 forums, most are noticing the same player names in their recently played list.

    I Want a new Tablet

    the Kindle has 512MB of RAM and 1.0GHz OMAP, the NOVO7 Aurora has 1GB of DDR3 and an ARM overclocked to 1.5GHz. I can appreciate your hands on experience but Ainol has 5 versions of the NOVO7 now and with the micro SD slot, a much nicer screen, shipping with ICS, you are paying more for the...

    I Want a new Tablet

    a new version of the Ainol NOVO7 just came out, its probably the best sub $200 7" tablet shipping with ICS 4.o at the moment: 1024 x 600 five point multitouch IPS screen by Hitachi, 1GB DDR3 RAM, 1.5GHz Allwinner A10 cpu + Mali 400 GPU, HDMI out 1080p, Wifi 802.11b/g/n, 2.0MP Front Camera...

    I Want a new Tablet

    actually, Apple cut production numbers for the iPad2 (IPad3 will be 8.x") and their suppliers are now selling 9.7" IPS panels to Chinese domestic market tablet makers (Teclast, Cube, Window, Bmorn, Onda, etc). So tablets like the Teclast A10, Bmorn V99, Windo N90, Cube U9GT2 are shipping with...

    PayPal Tells Buyer To Destroy Violin Instead Of Returning It

    I disagree. The value of the violin is based on rarity and exclusivity. Fake handbags flooding the market make the actual designer goods less rare, less exclusive, thus diminishing the value, which is why they are destroyed.

    PayPal Tells Buyer To Destroy Violin Instead Of Returning It

    so all those counterfeit designer handbags should not be destroyed because they have value as non designer handbags ? whether it is a working instrument or otherwise, PayPal is asking for the fake item to be thrown into the cracks of mount doom, preventing it from being bought and sold again...

    Teclast P76ti 1.5GHz HDMI 8GB 7inch 5 points Multitouch Android ICS 4.0 $119.99 w/FS

    there are a lot of Chinese tablets using the Allwinner A10 and Rockchip RK2918 chipsets, they are both about the same performance wise. As long as the screen is decent, this sounds like a great deal. I know that Rockchip has ported Android 4.o for RK2918 devices, I was not aware that it had been...

    Ainol Novo 7 ( Android Tablet ) $139.99 + Free Ship

    actually Ainol pmps using the SC9800 chipset were regarded as the best, particularly the 4.8" v6000HDT and the 4.3" v9000HDA. Eventually they did release budget models with lower quality screens because that is where the market went. They really are one of the better Chinese brands and their...

    Acer Iconia A500 refurb for $250

    does this tablet come with with true Android 3.o or is it 2.3 reskinned to look like honeycomb ? the 16:9 aspect ratio (as opposed to 4:3) on a 10 inch screen might bother some who are primarily watching videos, a9 / tegra2 is decent for $250.
