Leap Motion Review
     Mon, Aug 26 2013 | 9:03A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Leap Motion touts its controller as a new paradigm in human input devices, allowing users to wave, swipe and poke their way through a digital world otherwise meant for keyboards, mice and touchscreens. The miniscule gadget barely measures larger than a USB flash drive, however inside the Leap you'll find two cameras and three infrared LEDs capable of tracking hand and finger movements in all three spatial dimensions. Making use of motion-sensing technology to interact with your computer is at least refreshing, if not magical.

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."

Remember Me takes you into the future, Paris in 2084 to be exact. Your memory can be changed between humans, but is that all that is happening?"

[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.*"
