RapidSpar, made by DeepSpar
     Mon, Aug 01 2016 | 9:03A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The RapidSpar is a truly impressive data recovery device. The DeepSpar team have distilled a subset of their vast recovery experience into a product that can initialize drives not even recognized by most systems. Their RapidNebula service provides cloud-based drive-specific optimal recovery settings to the unit, enabling bad sector handling at speeds rivaling any software tool. The included RapidSpar Assistant software is file-system aware, and allows Targeted Recovery of data, allowing surgical imaging and extraction of only the files you are after, saving time and maximizing the chances of success for failing drives. I’ve been throwing faulty drives at this demo unit for almost a year now, and I have come away extremely impressed with just how many high-end recovery features have managed to trickle down into this powerful little unit."

Battleborn PC Game Analysis
     Mon, May 16 2016 | 5:37P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Battleborn came out earlier this month and while its launch may have been overshadowed by the Overwatch open beta, this might not be a game you want to let fall by the wayside. Gearbox’s ‘hero shooter’ is quite different from the likes of Overwatch and Team Fortress in a number of ways, with some unique game modes, vibrant characters and a campaign mode but how does it hold up on the PC specifically? Let’s find out!

Video Capture & Editing
     Tue, Mar 08 2016 | 9:02A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I covered quite a bit and there is even more I could cover. I also have a batch file for making GIFs, renaming, scaling, and converting the screenshots I take, cropping videos, burning arbitrary text onto a video, burning the timecode, concatenating videos, changing the volume, and the terrifying SplitScreen.bat file. (I pass it two videos, tell it if I want the split to be horizontal or vertical and if I want the 'screens' to mirror each other or be half-and-half, and by magic it actually works.) I think this is enough for you to get started with your own capturing and editing experiments, so have fun!”

Check If Adobe Flash is Installed, Then Get Rid of It
     Tue, Nov 03 2015 | 1:20P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Flash, it's been a good run. We've had a lot of fun together, but it's time to get some distance... permanently. That doesn't erase my fond memories of playing together back in the day, but we both have to wake up and face the truth. You're outdated and insecure and untrustworthy. It's not me, it's you.

Take A Tour Of Microsoft’s Flagship 5th Ave Store
     Fri, Oct 30 2015 | 4:00P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
just opened a brand new, flagship store at 677 5th Avenue, in New York City. And since we’re just a short drive away, and were already spending some time in Manhattan with the folks from Motorola and Verizon, we thought we’d pop in and take a look around. The store is comprised of multiple stories—an elevator has buttons for floors 1 – 4, but only the first three floors are open to the public. The store was absolutely jammed when we arrived and customers appeared to be enamored with the latest Surface devices, especially the Surface Book...
