[Tech ARP] Why Apple Maps-gate Could Have Been Avoided (Or Not)
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 9:48A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The furore over the new Apple Maps doesn`t seem to be abating anytime soon. Every day, there are new articles on how the new Apple Maps has just directed someone to walk into a river, or converted the mighty Derwent River in Hobarts, Australia into a lake... This may seem like your typical fare from Apple detractors, but the fact of the matter is most of these people who are complaining are... Apple users! At the same time, there is a constant slew of articles or commentaries defending Apple Maps as anything from a good start to no one gets it right the first time. They may be right, or they may just be die-hard Apple fanatics. But it doesn`t seem like the tit-for-tat is going to end anytime soon. Even here in Tech ARP, we have different opinions on Apple Maps and how well they handled the aftermath. Let`s take a look..."

Asrock VisionX 321B
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 9:03A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asrock VisionX 321B is an awesome little HTPC that packs a serious punch. Actually we really shouldn’t label the VisionX as a HTPC as it is so much more than that. Whereas other models such as the VisionHT rely on integrated graphic solutions, such as the Intel HD Graphics 4000, the VisionX employs a far more powerful solution making it a very capable gaming machine.

Gigabyte X79S-UP5 WiFi
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte X79S-UP5-WiFi really is the ultimate all-rounder, offering a wealth of features at a very reasonable price. Perhaps the only thing that could help make this motherboard more attractive is a non-WiFi edition which should cost smack bang on $300, making it one of the more affordable LGA2011 motherboards available.

LG IPS277L-BN review: LG's latest generation
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink

Patriot Intel Extreme Masters DDR3-2133 16GB Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 8:29A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I am a huge fan of special or limited edition memory kits. Memory has sort of been boring the past year as not much has really changed and products like SSDs are being chosen as the main component to speed up your system when it comes to an upgrade. The kit we are taking a look at today from Patriot was made for Intels Extreme Masters gaming tournaments. The kit features a very unique and stylish design and is available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB kits up to 2133MHz in either dual or quad channel configurations. The kits are tested to work with Intel 6 and 7 series chipsets, are XMP certified and have a lifetime warranty. Read on as we take a look at this limited edition memory!"
