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”.

Internet Explorer 9
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 12:02P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“There was a time when the terms ‘Web browser’ and ‘Internet Explorer’ were more or less synonymous, but times have changed. Over the past few years a significant and still growing number of users have switched to Mozilla Firefox and, more latterly, Google Chrome, disappointed with recent releases of IE and lured away by the performance, usability and security of the alternatives. Internet Explorer is still the most used browser around, at least on Windows. However, its market share had been seriously dented and, with IE9, Microsoft is hoping to make up for lost ground. First impressions are that it may have some success achieving that goal.”

Firefox 4
     Sat, Apr 30 2011 | 4:00P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The browser wars continue to rage with Microsoft, Mozilla, Google and others all keen to have us use their products, and theirs alone, to access the wonders of the Worldwide Web. New versions are appearing thick and fast with, in March this year, two significant new releases—the first from Microsoft with Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) closely followed by Firefox 4 from Mozilla a mere week later. We’ve already reviewed IE9, now it’s the turn of Firefox, with a look at just what version 4 of the Mozilla browser has to offer.”

Using Gallium3D On AMD FirePro Workstation GPUs
     Mon, Apr 25 2011 | 9:03A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"How well do AMD's FireGL/FirePro workstation graphics cards work with the open-source graphics drivers for Linux? It's something we never have really focused on up to this point, since after all, most workstation users are satisfied with using proprietary display drivers on Linux. It is the workstation market that drives the proprietary Linux driver development after all for AMD and NVIDIA, and that is really the focus of development, not Linux gamers or enthusiasts. But curiosity got the best of me, so here's what happens if you try to use an expensive FirePro graphics card with the open-source driver stack and the Mesa Gallium3D driver."

Internet Explorer 10 - THE VERY FIRST LOOK
     Wed, Apr 13 2011 | 10:18P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Yesterday Microsoft released the first platform preview for the upcoming Internet Explorer 10. The new version 10 preview, as with the Platform Previews for version 9, sports none of the browser's "chrome," or interface elements—just an underlying Web rendering engine. This preview allows users to look at how IE10 will render the much-newer HTML5 and CSS3 code.”

Cyberlink`s new YouCam 5 may not be the most interesting piece of software every created nor is it particularly useful for those of you who only want the standard features built into most online video chatting applications. However, it does deliver a broad range of add-ons that will likely take your chat sessions to the next level and even adds a good helping of capabilities that will appeal to professionals."

Microsoft's Internet Explorer 9 web browser goes live
     Thu, Feb 10 2011 | 5:39P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft has said the latest version of its internet explorer web browser puts it ahead of competitors like Google and Firefox. The software giant, which is losing market share, made the bold claim as it unveiled what is known as the release candidate of IE9. Privacy and speed are being highlighted as two of the features that set IE9 apart. Microsoft said that this latest version of IE9 is faster than the beta by 35%, making it faster than any browser currently available. Also new is expanded support for HTML5 and what is known as other "future-web" technologies. These include support for a geolocation feature and HTML5 semantic tags. These features are largely present in other browsers. IE9 is a free download that works Windows Vista and Windows 7 computers. It's not compatible with Windows XP.

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.
