     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

The decision to use water cooling makes the Ares II even more unique, and takes the concept of dual-GPU cards to yet another level.

[Tech ARP] Facebook Lies In Its Advertisements!
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 9:53A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
My problem with Mark Zuckerberg taking Facebook public isn`t that he gets to make a gazillion dollars - *this is capitalism, remember?* Or that many Facebook shareholders feel that they were ripped off in the IPO - *caveat emptor, my friends!* My problem with him taking Facebook public is that he no longer seems to be focused on making the world open. Instead, he seems to be more beholden to the shareholders, and proving to them and the world that he can monetize the huge Facebook community. Now, I have nothing against corporations making money. After all, corporations are people, aren`t they? They should be entitled to a decent living wage like everyone else. Well, at least that`s what Mitt Romney says. The only thing I`m against is corporations lying to make money. I`m pretty sure there`s a law or two against such things."

a.m.p SP1 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker & Speakerphone Review
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 9:23A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wired portable media speakers have been around for quite a long time (mostly small stereo ones) but it wasn`t until smartphones made their debut around a decade ago that manufacturers focused on the design and manufacture of wireless ones via Bluetooth connectivity. Fast forward a decade and right now the market is literally filled with countless Bluetooth compatible portable speakers of virtually every size possible which not only can be used to significantly boost the audio levels of your smartphone but can also double as speakerphones. To date only two such devices have really peaked our interest, the quite powerful and unique looking SOLEMATE Bluetooth Portable Speaker by Jabra and the extremely easy to use Boost Plus Near Field Audio Amplifying Speaker (needs no wires and Bluetooth to work) by iFrogz. Recently however Antec launched their Antec Mobile Products division (a.m.p) through which they aim to dominate that market with their latest SP1 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker & Speakerphone which we have here today."

SteelSeries Flux Headset Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 9:22A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the cellphone being more and more a platform for digital entertainment (games and multimedia), it`s just natural that the user would want a headset that is fit for gaming in a classic desktop/laptop configuration and also good for listening to music and making calls on a mobile device. Flux, the portable model from SteelSeries, is an answer to all those needs. It also features heavy rubber cables that don`t tangle up, plus literally over a thousand choices of customization. The product is sold in a regular version as well as a luxury edition, with some accessories. We received the luxury edition for our test, but first we are going to review the headset itself, and then proceed to analyze its accessories and performance."

Intel’s Next Unit of Computing Review
     Sun, Feb 03 2013 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel decided to give it a shot in the ultra-compact desktop systems market. And they immediately came up with a unique product: a miniature system case only 12x11x4 cm in size based on Core i3 processor. It boasts a truly impressive combination of features, but does it make practical sense to give us a large desktop box in favor of a tiny guy like that?

Arctic USB Charger PRO 4 Rev.2 @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sun, Feb 03 2013 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
DESCRIPTION: USB has made it convenient to charge mobile devices, since most people also have access to a computer with an available port. But as the devices add up, those ports become scarce. This is ideal during extended travel, when battery power for items like the Apple iPad or iPhone runs low after a movie. Keeping fully charged is a challenge while traveling, since most people leave their bulky systems at home. This is where a portable USB charge adapter comes in very handy. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the travel-sized Arctic USB Charger PRO 4 Rev 2, model PSAEQ-AC01301-BL.
