Arcadie Retro Gaming Console for iDevices Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 11:13A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I was young I remember actually going to the arcade where they had full sized arcade machines for you to play. These days they dont exist anymore, except for limited places like Dave and Busters, and thats really only for adults considering how much alcohol is consumed there. Thats here in the United States of course, I know in other countries arcades are still popular and going strong. For children there really arent arcades anymore and there really isnt a need for them considering we have consoles in our homes and portable gaming everywhere which is a lot cheaper than pumping quarters into machines for hours per day. Today for review Ive got something that will help bring back that arcade feel, at least in small scale. The product is the Arcadie Retro Gaming Console that can be used with your iPod Touch or iPhone turning it into basically an arcade machine. Ive been playing with it for quite a while and thoroughly enjoying myself while doing it. So read on to learn more about it.."

Posted by: STAFF
Our report on the Samsung 840 Pro SSD begins post take off from Pearson Int`l Airport in Toronto and on route to Seoul, South Korea. Having had this SSD in our hands for some time, even the enormity of the Samsung 840 family release celebration cannot overshadow the performance of what just might be the hottest solid state drive to hit the streets to date. How does just under an extra hour laptop life and 100,000 IOPS grab you to start?"

REVIEW: AMD Vishera FX-8350 & ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z ROG @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 10:53A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?AMD first released its FX series chips last year with the FX ?Bulldozer? series. Some of us were not too happy with the chip, because the performance did not live up to expectations. Despite (and because of) that hiccup, we are very excited to see what their ?new tech? can bring to the table. Today we are going to look at the new FX-8350 series chip, code-named ?Vishera,? to see what it can do. AMD has reported that the new line of FX series chips will bring a 15% increase in performance from the previous series. We look forward to putting this claim to the test. The new line of FX-8350 series chip is made to compete with its rival, the Intel Core i5 3570k. Our intention is to show you how it stacks up against just that, and who is still wearing the performance crown at the end. Let?s move on here and take a look at the new Piledriver Architecture.?"

[Tech ARP] ED#141 : AssistiveTouch Bug In Apples New iOS 6
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:48A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year, I wrote about Apple`s blahblahblah, a nifty little feature that most of us thought was to make it for the disabled to use the Apple urban haute bourgeoisie. Well, that too, but it also allowed us, able-bodied people, to protect the iPhone`s less than robust Home button so that it wouldn`t die on us so quickly. Needless to say, once you tried it, you will likely not go back to using the Home button. Now that I`m used to it, I find it much easier to use the AssistiveTouch button than the actual Home button! I`m sure quite a few of you feel the same way too. Fast forward to the release of iOS 6, and this urban haute bourgeoisie feature starts getting the wrong kind of love. "

Borderlands 2 Defeat The Warrior Farming Guide @ BmR
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:42A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Borderlands 2 is an exciting game that pulls you into a fantasy world that`s been done a hundred times, but finds a way to give it to you like never before. While the game itself is a hybrid creation with familiar ingredients that taste of Eve Online, World of Warcraft, and Fallout, then seasoned with hints of Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty. Players assume the role of a vault hunter in one of four combat disciplines: Commando, Gunzerker, Assassin, and Siren. The character then fight bandits in first-person shooter format across a vast array of maps, but unlike most FPS-styled games, each level means better loot and tougher enemies. In this article Benchmark Reviews explains how to easily beat `The Warrior` end boss within `The Talon of God` final story mission, then we show you how to farm him for XP and legendary purple weapons over and over again."

[Tech ARP] Java Plug-In SSV Helper - Should It Stay Or Should It Go?
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:35A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you use Internet Explorer, you will probably encounter this quite often - a pop-up request to enable or disable the `Java(tm) Plug-In SSV Helper` add-on from `Oracle America, Inc.`. Some of you may notice that this usually pops-up after you update Java. In any case, the question is - should it stay or should it go? First of all - don`t worry. This isn`t a piece of malicious software. This plug-in is part of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), which is needed to run applications written in the Java language. Web browsers like Internet Explorer need JRE to properly display websites that use Java applets and/or codes. Before you hit the Enable button though..."

Is Desktop PC a Dying Breed? Many Think Not! @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:29A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So the desktop PC is a dying breed, you say. Hmmm, are you so sure about that? Since making such a statement infers a comparison, one then has to ask the question compared to what? Compared to the way it used to be? Considering that we are discussing one of the most rapidly and continuously evolving technologies known to man, the way it used to be can be as little as six months ago. The ongiong need for desktop PCs continues to manifest itself in many ways."

Is the Gamepad Really Designed for Gaming?
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:29A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Game interface designers recognize how terrible the precision of controller sticks are and pretty much universally decide that a few undeserved kills are better than frustration from constant input failure. Because the controller would otherwise be too frustrating even the most competitive console title includes aim assist. The game might curl your projectile to the target it believes you intend to hit; it might nudge or lock your crosshairs to the target; it may do both and/or some other method. So why not just take away the gamepad since it is worse than the mouse and keyboard?"

NZXT Phantom 820 Full Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT Phantom 820 full tower case is the next flagship case design to come from their crafted series. The Phantom 820 is larger than the original in width and height but smaller in depth, with a size of 235mm x 650mm x 612mm. NZXT kept the general aesthetics the same but many of the features have been upgraded and improved. NZXT integrated their Hue lighting control system directly into the case allowing you to customize the lighting colors within your case. The Phantom 820 is easily adjusted to fit many different cooling configurations. Customizable cooling coupled with a built in fan speed controller that features four 15W channels and a total of twelve internal leads, means that the new Phantom will support some serious cooling.///"

HIS 7750 iCooler 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E Video Card Review @ Madshrimps
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon HD 7750 comes with an efficient and silent cooling solution, in low profile format and with very good overclocking capabilities, which makes it a very good card for integrating into a media center. With it we are also able to game with medium to high details most games with the 1680x1050 or 1680x1200 resolutions."
