how to get the most out of Siri on the iPhone
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 12:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PC Review has a comprehensive article on how to get the most out of Siri on the iPhone 4S. It includes usage examples for all compatible apps as well as some tips you may not have known: "There are a huge range of tasks that Siri can help with, and although it is still in beta (as of January 2012) Siri could change how we use our mobile devices forever. Whilst we are all used to speaking to other people on the phone, having a conversation with your phone can be an alien concept. The attitude that a lot of people have is “why use Siri when you can simply type in the information / query etc yourself?”. Hopefully this guide will inspire and encourage a change in the way you use your iPhone 4S."

NZXT HALE82 850-watt Power Supply Review
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 11:30A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was squarely aimed at enthusiasts with high efficiency and great performance with several options not normally seen in a mainstream product. All of this came with a little bit of a price premium and as such, there were many that passed on the power supply simply because it was a little bit out of their budget. Enter the NZXT HALE82. The new NZXT HALE82 series of power supplies aren`t meant for enthusiast, but are more geared towards mainstream gamers. One of the main differences that most will notice is that the new HALE82 series is only rated for 80Plus Bronze efficiency."

I/ITSEC: Cutting Edge Simulation and Training Trade Show Coverage
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 9:59A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The show covers a wide range of topics and offers education on a wide range of specialties. There were flight simulators as you might imagine, drone flying simulators and several areas that most of us wouldn`t think about, like driving a fire truck. Today we`re going to take a look at some really cool technology at the show and see the pictures. Our host for the event, AVADirect had several systems running in the booths, more than any other system builder by far. I`ve known those behind AVADirect for a few years now and have heard them say their biggest market is government and defense contractor sales, now I see what they mean."

Intel Core i7-2600K 3.40GHz Processor w/Turbo Boost
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A recent survey conducted by Crucial (The Memory Experts) indicated that computer owners in the United States of America, United Kingdom, and France, were electing to replace their computers after 4.5-years of purchase, meaning people are holding on to their machines for a much longer time. . What this means is that a good chunk of you should still be running some type of Intel Core 2 offering based on the LGA775 socket, whether it be single-core, dual-core, or quad-core configuration. Unfortunately, it is no longer sufficient for a power user or a reviewer that requires the latest system. With that said, this is a perfect lead-in to today’s review. Today I get to experience the fruits of Intel’s hard labor and share with you about Intel’s newest and top of the line offering in the form of the Intel Core i7-2600K microprocessor. Read on to see if you should be thinking of replacing your 4.5-year old computer with one from Intel."

Preview: Intels Open-Source Driver Can Beat Mac OS X
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 4:14A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thanks to recent advancements by Intel`s Open-Source Technology Center, the open-source Linux graphics driver not only supports more OpenGL 3.0 functionality than Apple`s Intel graphics driver for Mac OS X, but the performance is more competitive. In some cases, the OpenGL performance is now superior under Linux with the open-source driver that is developed by Intel in conjunction with the free software community. This article is looking at the performance of Intel Sandy Bridge graphics under Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and Ubuntu Linux."

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