Configuring a Windows 8 Virtual Machine
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 12:03P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the launch of Windows 8's Consumer Preview, you're probably itching to spend some quality time with Microsoft's latest operating system. Although you may have already downloaded the ISO, we bet some of you haven't decided how you're going to install it. Fortunately, running Windows 8 in a virtual machine solves all that: it won't remove your current OS, you can access it anytime you want without rebooting and it doesn't require any extra hardware. What's more, the test OS can be deleted in only a few mouse clicks.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5.3-Inch Android
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink

     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While many of today's better smartphones offer dual-core processors and 1GB of RAM, alongside plenty of onboard storage, one of the easiest differentiating points between smartphones today has become the screen--size, resolution, and screen technology are all considerations. Samsung is pushing the former limits of smartphone screen sizes with the introduction of the new Samsung Galaxy Note. This smartphone offers one of the largest screens we've seen from a phone yet – 5.3 inches. In addition to being large, it is also a gorgeous display which uses Super AMOLED technology and offers a resolution of 1280x800...

Posted by: STAFF
Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of NAND flash solutions, today announces two new Flash Disk Module (FDM) solutions for Industrial and Embedded applications.

Already known for their IDE, SATA and USB flash disk modules; Super Talent now introduces two new FDM solutions focused on increase performance, PCIe and USB 3.0 FDM modules.

NEWS FLASH: CeBIT 2012 Ultimate Booth Babe Collection at The SSD Review
     Sat, Mar 10 2012 | 4:55P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have done it at each of the other technology shows with resounding success and thought we might tackle it once again at CeBIT 2012 in Hannover.  We think you might agree that there is one thing that simply cannot be overlooked as we travel CeBIT, this being European beauty. From Ms Germany,  Anne-Kathrin Kosch, to CES participants, and all the way to a member of the German police herself, there is definitely an aura about European women that cannot be simplified in word alone."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
