RAGE the PC Game by id Software @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Dec 24 2011 | 9:38P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At Benchmark reviews, we thought it might be interesting to offer a light hearted article on the new PC version FPS/RPG hybrid game RAGE, from id software, the creators of DOOM. I`ve played a lot of PC games since I started using computers. I`m not saying I`m a gamer, because I`m not. But, I have a good feel for how games have matured since DOOM, which was my first PC game. I`ve been luke warm with the entire genre of FPSs, MMOGs, and RTSs for a long time, with few exceptions. RAGE is one of those exceptions. Aside from video driver troubles early on, RAGE has a lot to offer and seems like a game inside of a game, inside of a game. This isn`t a review, but more of a personal musing on the game itself. So, take off your armor and come on in for some fun..."

     Mon, Nov 21 2011 | 2:29P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Storing data away from your main PC is important, we`ve well established that by this point.

Synology are one of the companies producing NAS drives, network attached storage options that offer up a variety of features -- and some pretty decent software -- to help your data stay protected. Today I`m looking at another Disk Station from the firm, the DS411."

Chrome OS is a retail product
     Sat, Aug 20 2011 | 9:03A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Subjectively, my experience agrees with the Peacekeeper benchmark results. While web browsing was reasonably enjoyable, there were noticeable delays at times, particularly when opening web pages. I also found that many web apps and games, felt slow. The Entanglement puzzle game, which came pre-baked in our review unit, was virtually unplayable because of its haphazard, stuttering performance."

Microsoft Demos C++ AMP Heterogeneous Computing at AMD's Fusion Developer Summit
     Sat, Jul 09 2011 | 4:02P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The second day of the AMD Fusion Developer Summit began with a keynote from Microsoft’s Herb Sutter, Principal Architect, Native Languages and resident C++ guru. The gist of Herb’s talk centered around heterogeneous computing and the changes coming with future versions of Visual Studio and C++. One of the main highlights of the talk was a demo of a C++ AMP application that seamlessly took advantage of all of the compute resources within a few of the various demo systems, from workstations to netbooks. The demo, however, was rather interesting to see live. In this physics simulation, bodies are tracked in relation to each other and as additional bodies are added, workload increases with a ramp-up to 100s of GFLops in compute performance.

[Tech ARP] The Android Web Browser Round-Up
     Thu, Jun 30 2011 | 9:55A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Android might not have the huge line-up of games and apps that iOS boasts but ever since Eclair (Android 2.0/2.1) came along, Android has been slowly overtaking iOS as the smartphone platform with the best Internet browsing experience. It boasts a fast loading speed, smooth scrolling and most importantly, support for Flash! Some may argue that Flash is useless and slow, but the fact remains - many websites still require Flash support for basic navigation, even though both Android and iOS support HTML5. Nothing beats the convenience of playing back video directly on the browser. The Android`s stock browser is no slouch, but there`s always room for improvement. Fortunately, Android is an open platform, so there are tons of alternative browsers out there. There is no one perfect choice, however. It all depends on your personal preference, especially when it comes to the features they offer. In this round-up, we will take a look at the following web browser for the Android platform..."

Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 Review
     Thu, May 19 2011 | 4:02P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Getting my head around OS X wasn't easy and then diving into the programs needed to do my everyday stuff was another task that had to be learnt. Quite a big deal was being made for Office for Mac 2011 and as a happy Office 2010 for Windows user, I was looking forward to checking out the Mac version. There are two versions off Office for Mac 2011; the first is Home & Student while the second is Home & Business. Both are near identical with only two changes that really separate them. The first is that the H&B version carries with it a copy of Microsoft's e-mail program, Outlook. The second is that it carries 12 months of Tech Support. With that said, H&S does also offer Tech Support, but only 90 days."

Citrix GoToMeeting
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 12:03P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We liked GoToMeeting. Its quick setup, flat-fee billing and support for PC and Mac platforms making it a good solution for small to medium-sized businesses looking to run online meetings with no long-term strings attached. However, it’s far from the only product on the market and faces stiff competition from other, better known, services such as Cisco WebEx. Lack of branding opportunities, like those available with WebEx, could also be an issue for larger companies—particularly those selling through their online presence and looking to differentiate their conferencing tools against those of competitors”.
