Nikon D3200 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Jun 20 2012 | 8:02A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Nikon D3200 is the company`s entry-level D-SLR, and as such offers a wealth of features that should appeal to photographers in search of their first interchangeable lens camera. The 24-megapixel shooter improves upon the 14-megapixel resolution of the D3100 and also provides full manual shooting controls for seasoned shutterbugs."

Apple's iOS 6: What's New and What's Missing
     Tue, Jun 19 2012 | 4:03P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As was the case with every iOS release before it, Apple is promising some fairly major enhancements and new features with iOS 6. iOS 5 was a major release in its own right, but a year has past, and at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco last week, the veil was removed from iOS 6. Apple apparently has a thing for offering "200 new features" in their operating systems; iOS 6 seems to be following Mountain Lion in that regard. 200 tweaks may sound like a lot (and it is), but there are a few key additions, updates and changes with iOS 6 that deserve a closer look...

Cooler Master Cosmos II Case Review
     Tue, Jun 19 2012 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you’ve no doubt seen the Cooler Master Cosmos II online or perhaps at your local hardware retailer or LAN party (although I pity the person responsible for lugging this heavyweight anywhere outside of their house). Cooler Master showcased what they call the 'Ultra Tower' at this year's CES and we've been anxious to get it on the test bench ever since to see if it lives up to the hype. With support for up to 13 hard drives and a total weight of nearly 50 pounds without any hardware installed, this is probably the largest case I've ever worked with in over 10 years of reviewing computer hardware.

E3 2012 Awards
     Tue, Jun 19 2012 | 4:00P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Where do I begin? No release date? No pricing? Technical issues? Lackluster multi-platform titles? Well when I put it like that, it's no wonder the Wii U is my biggest disappointment of E3, right? Nintendo is still shooting to release the Wii U by the end of the year, yet no mention of a price? That's a problem! The other major problem? Framerate issues when using two GamePad controllers. At last year's E3, Nintendo naively announced it would only support one GamePad. That has thankfully changed, but if the technical issues aren't fixed, that could be a major problem. But going back to the lack of pricing again, we also don't know what a system purchase will include – one GamePad or two?"

Computex 2012 Day 1 - Hit the floor sleepy
     Tue, Jun 19 2012 | 3:11P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For me it all started at 5am when I disembarked my international flight from Seattle. That gave me just enough time to get to the hotel, shower, check email and plan my day before I had to leave to catch my first meeting. Needless to say, fatigue and jetlag almost did me in on the MRT ride back to my hotel.

ROCCAT Kone[+] Gaming Mouse & Isku Gaming Keyboard Review @ Techgage

Posted by: STAFF
ROCCAT may not sound like a familiar name to you, but in time, that could change. The company has been in the European market for a number of years, and has just broken into the US scene earlier this year. To get a good idea of what the company has to offer, we`re taking a look at its Kone[+] gaming mouse and Isku gaming keyboard."

E3 Expo 2012 NVIDIA GeForce Gloud Grid & Tegra 3 Demos @ Legit Reviews

We were brought over to the Samsung Smart TV that was connected to the internet with an Ethernet cable and loaded with Gaikais online gaming app that is needed for access to the NVIDIA GeForce GRID cloud gaming platform. A few seconds later we were playing Meteor Entertainments new mech warrior game Hawken from a data center about 10 miles away in the heart of LA. Keep in mind we were doing this with just a TV and the remote control as the hardware running the game was miles away..."

[Tech ARP] How To Unlock Huawei 3G Modems
     Tue, Jun 19 2012 | 10:32A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From a user`s perspective, it makes sense to reuse a 3G modem. Not only is it environmentally-friendly, it may help you save some money if the new service provider allows you to sign up without buying a new modem from them. In some cases, you might even want to use the older modem because it`s faster or better in some way. So after discontinuing my Maxis mobile broadband account, I decided to reuse the Huawei E1762 modem for my DiGi Broadband account. All I needed to do was pull out the old Maxis SIM card and insert the DiGi SIM card. Of course, that`s supposed to be the case. The reality is the Huawei E1762 modem was locked to the Maxis network. So this error message will pop-up if a non-Maxis SIM card is installed..."

OCZ Vertex 4 128GB Solid State Drive Review @ OCIA.net
     Tue, Jun 19 2012 | 9:59A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Everest 2 platform comes as a result of OCZ?s acquisition of Indilinx in early 2011 but it isn?t the first time we have seen the Indilinx brand stamped on a Vertex drive. The company launched the original Vertex SSD as one of the pioneering flash storage solutions for mainstream users with an Indilinx controller under the hood. OCZ jumped on the SandForce bandwagon with the Vertex 2 and Vertex 3 but have come full circle back to an Indilinx solution with the Vertex 4... well, sort of. But we?ll get to that in just a bit.?"

[Tech ARP] Slow Menus In Adobe Photoshop CS6
     Tue, Jun 19 2012 | 9:23A | Tips | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those who have tried Adobe`s Photoshop CS6 beta or the recently-released final version may come across a really odd problem - very unresponsive menus. These symptoms will only occur when there`s an open file, and it seems to only affect notebooks with switchable graphics (Intel HD Graphics paired with an AMD or NVIDIA graphics card). Perhaps that`s the reason why there has been so little noise about this problem online. We think we figured out what was causing this problem..."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
