Windows 8 RTC Bug fixed @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 12:16P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As soon as the Windows 8 RTC issue appeared, we started our own investigation and found out, that only Intel setups were affected. But still there were quite a few questions unanswered like for example: which timer is Windows 8 actually using, are there really no issues on AMD and why is the issue fixed, when you move to an Intel when you installed Windows 8 using an AMD platform? Credit also goes to Franck D. from CPUID, who was kind enough to provide us with a tool to read out different timers and their frequency."

Remember Me @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Aug 02 2013 | 8:30A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The action-adventure genre has been getting a decent amount of attention lately with the Batman Arkham games as well as more recent titles like Tomb Raider and Devil May Cry. Remember Me is a title in this same mold from Capcom and Dontnod Entertainment that looks to balance the standard mix of platforming, exploration and combat along with a few unique tricks up its sleeve to deliver us an entertaining experience in a sci-fi dystopia based around the interesting concept of memory transfer. Will this offering prove memorable or fall flat in its attempt? Join me as we take a look."

Ubuntu 13.10 Can Outperform OS X 10.9 On Intel OpenGL
     Tue, Jul 30 2013 | 10:08A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Apple`s OS X 10.9 Mavericks having better OpenGL performance and in compliance with OpenGL 4.1 rather than being GL3-limited as with existing OS X releases, new benchmarks were carried out at Phoronix to see how well Apple`s OpenGL driver stack on the current OS X 10.9 developer preview compared to Ubuntu Linux when testing the Intel graphics driver."

Adobe Lightroom 5 Remembers its Roots @ Techgage
     Fri, Jul 26 2013 | 9:05A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the first time since its launch in 2007, the newest version of Adobe Lightroom focuses on refining the experience for photographers with a few well-built features rather than packing in a bunch of cruft that most of us didnt want. It may not boast a big list of new items, but the features that are here help establish LR 5 as the best yet."

Remember Me Review
     Sun, Jul 07 2013 | 3:37A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`re looking for a linear, story-driven action-adventure game, Remember Me is a solid choice. Its structure is extremely rigid, not allowing for any exploration or player choice, but its setting and story are engaging and Nilin is an easy character to relate to, despite her badassitude. Nilin is the near-future version of Lara Croft - strong, intelligent, and nimble with some advanced technology to make life slightly easier. Because she`s not sexualized - and has smaller, more natural breasts - she also happens to be a better role model for girls, though the combat-heavy nature of the game may cause girls to steer clear."

Leawo Total Media Converter Ultimate @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Jun 01 2013 | 12:35P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Leawo Total Media Converter Ultimate claims to be an all-inclusive media management system that allows you to transcode and backup Blu-ray, DVD, and just about any other media format available. The Total Media Converter Ultimate is priced at $99, which makes it one of the pricier options for media conversion and storage.

[Tech ARP] Java Plug-In SSV Helper - Should It Stay Or Should It Go? Rev. 2.0
     Sat, May 18 2013 | 12:11P | 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... *In this update, we added a section called After Upgrading To Internet Explorer 10. If you are using Internet Explorer 10, please take a look at the update.*"

[Tech ARP] Website Problems With Internet Explorer 10? Switch Modes!

Posted by: STAFF
If you are on Microsoft Windows 8, or have recently upgraded to Internet Explorer 10, you may notice that some websites may not be working correctly - dropdown menus and buttons that no longer work, or you may get an Unsupported Browser error. Although it is always possible to switch to a different web browser, the solution for Internet Explorer 10 is pretty simple."

SECTOR Pilot Master R3273679025 Review
     Wed, May 08 2013 | 5:17P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of the people i know who wear wristwatches all the time have one or more favorite brands which they always trust when the time comes either to buy a new watch to add to their collection or as a replacement for an old one. Back in 2002 i was out for a stroll when i passed in front of a watch shop which had almost a 3 digit number of models on display (something that was a bit surprising since most watch shops have like 10-20 samples on display). However out of all these watches my eyes fell on a single bracelet one made by an unknown brand to me called SECTOR but due to its somewhat high price tag (at least for me back then) i skipped on buying it. Obviously back then i wasn`t that much into watches (especially bracelet ones since it was the leather/rubber era for me) which pretty much explains my ignorance regarding a well-established watch manufacturer like SECTOR. Fast forward 11 years later and today on our test bench we have one of the latest Sector watches to hit the market the Pilot Master R3273679025 (R stands for Racing)."

Free Anti-Virus Comparison Review
     Mon, Apr 22 2013 | 9:59A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As the other feature-rich antivirus, Avast! Antivirus comes in third, performance wise, to AVG. Personally though, my preference would be to consider Microsoft Security Essentials as third, but that may be my own bias talking. Avast definitely has a rich feature set which may go very far in protecting you, but I just found it too intrusive for my taste. Of course MSE is lacking in both features (not always a bad thing) and performance, so really only its simplicity and the Microsoft name gives a recommendation for it much weight. Perhaps it would be best to say Avast has won at this moment in time, but if MSE can get its detection-act together then the table may turn."

Synology DiskStation DS2413+ NAS Review
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 12:02P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DS2413+ is Synology's newest twelve-bay DiskStation NAS for small to medium sized businesses who need loads of storage. Along with supporting up to 48TB worth of drives out of the box, the DS2413+ can be paired with the company's DX1211 expansion enclosure that houses an extra 12 drives, doubling the maximum storage capacity of the base unit to a whopping 96TB. We should also make a quick note before you get to the end and scoff at the price: the DS2413+ isn't for average home users. It's retailing for $1,700 without drives or the 12-bay expansion. With that in mind, let's see what the DS2413+'s upgrades offer.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
