Samsung WB750 Camera Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 4:25P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung WB750 is a relatively cheap compact camera that features a 12.5MP BSI CMOS sensor, ensuring that you`ll be able to shoot excellent stills or HD video even if you`re not the most photography savvy person around. The WB750 also lets you snap 10 megapixel photos whilst recording in full HD video, which isn`t a feature we`ve seen too much of in cameras nowadays. Let`s take a closer look...* *"

Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Cards in CrossFire Overclocked
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 4:25P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we unfortunately missed the HD 7700 series launch, the last thing sitting in my testbed before getting shipped off to the emergency department was a pair of Radeon HD 7950 video cards from Sapphire that we looked at a few weeks ago. Before I pulled out the cards, though, I wanted to head in to Afterburner, clock both cards a bit and see just what kind of performance we could get out of the CrossFire setup and see how it compares to some of the other setups we`ve looked at recently. Because we`ve already looked at the Sapphire card in good detail, we won`t be looking at the card and or the package, instead we`ll be getting straight into the testbed side of things. At the same time we`ll also cover the overclock we managed to achieve via Afterburner."

SilverStone TJ08-E Micro-ATX Tower Enclosure Review
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 4:25P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are in the market for a Micro-ATX tower enclosure, the SilverStone TJ08-E case deserves to be up at the top of your list. The TJ08-E provides excellent cooling and it packs a lot of storage capacity into a small tower chassis. The overall build quality is very good and the beautiful black anodized front panel is just what we would expect from SilverStone. Easily removable side panels, top, motherboard tray, and HDD cage are icing on the cake. The TJ08-E proved to be a pleasure to work with and earned this editor`s choice award!"

SteelSeries Simraceway SRW-S1 Steering Wheel Review
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 4:25P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The day has come that I have fully tried out many titles with this new racing steering wheel and I think you are really going to like what you find here in this review and in the product, as I did. Conventional wheels need a desktop to mount to and a place for the pedals to go and hopefully not slide across the room as you use them. With this concept it is more about comfort and convenience while still offering you a very involved feeling on a wheel that doesn`t offer force feedback or vibration support. Since it had been a really long time since I used a wheel for games, I also made sure to get to Chris` house and tried out his force feedback setup with the chair and the works just to be sure I had a full perspective of what is offered currently in the clamp-on wheel category. What I will be willing to say up front, is even without the tactile feel of the wheels on the road, or the vibration of the car as you slide out into the marbles, it makes this wheel no less appealing or fun to use with your favorite racers, SIM or arcade games. Speaking of SIM racing, this wheel is built specifically to work in conjunction with Simraceway, but loads as a default wheel controller and lacks the need for drivers to work with almost any PC title offering out there."

A Futurelooks News Flash - ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Sandy Bridge-E LGA2011 ATX Motherboard Review
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 2:43P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Over the last three years, ASUS motherboards have offered standard physical features across the entire range of boards on top of consistency in stock performance. This has created a very favorable performance experience all around thanks to things like polished features and a robust BIOS. Today we`re going to take a close look at the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe motherboard to determine if that high end consistency continues in to Intel`s X79 chipset. The changes in the Sandy Bridge-E processor alone have added a few variables, but factor in some ASUS engineering and this motherboard could be a champion. *"

How To Stop Facebook Notifications On Apple iOS
     Fri, Feb 24 2012 | 1:25P | Web News | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Facebook sure is addictive. Many people cannot live without constant updates on Facebook. Cue in the Facebook iOS app that allows you to bring Facebook wherever you go. When I first gave it a try, it was fun. I would get updates all the time. Then it got a little tedious... and annoying. The Facebook app would keep pinging me everytime someone made a new post or a comment. I tried cutting down what Facebook would notify me to just new posts or comments. However, that still resulted in a deluge of notifications. Eventually, I got so annoyed, I decided to turn off ALL push notifications by the Facebook app. But what the heck, they kept coming like a tsunami. Unstoppable."
