Ceton Echo Windows Media Extender Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Nov 30 2012 | 11:52A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The form factor has changed significantly as well, to a sleek device around the size of most modern home theater streamers, but the functionality promised (i.e. small, quiet, efficient MCX) when used with WMC has not. This is an important point to note when examining the Echo on its own, because much of the previous coverage also included mention of Cetons Q (a TiVo like device) which, had it survived the summer, could have provided additional capability beyond what is possible from the standard MCX experience. With firmware releases bringing new functionality and fixes every few days it has proved difficult to nail down a definitive snapshot of the Echos long term capabilities; as retail availability is now upon us it is time to build on our first lool."

Intel NUC DC3217BY Review w/ Windows 8 @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Nov 30 2012 | 11:13A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I was able to get the Intel NUC fully assembled and installed Windows 8 in well under 30 minutes. Everything flowed together nicely and this DIY system was easy and fun to put together. The Intel NUC isn`t designed to replace everyone`s desktop PC, but it has enough performance to satisfy the needs of the average PC user. Having an entire PC in a 4 x 4 x 2 cube is pretty darn impressive and it allows you to..."

frames per second is not sufficient
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 4:00P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I spent literally hundreds of hours testing this, and I think the results are the first conclusive performance comparisons between Windows 8 and Windows 7, especially in gaming. I wanted to make sure that I didn't run any tests that were hardware limited.

For gaming performance, frames per second is not sufficient to portray actual gaming performance. This article looks at frame delivery times, in milliseconds, and shows pretty significant results depending on system configuration. For office applications, trace based benchmarks were used to show overall responsiveness using real workloads and real data."

Microsoft, Sony and Apple Stores on Windows 8’s Launch Day
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 12:03P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Microsoft launched Windows 8 last week, it was the culmination of a long wait. For most folks, it was a rather jarring thrust into the future. For better or worse, the operating system that introduces the touch-oriented Metro UI to the Windows environment had arrived. No one is more excited about the launch than Microsoft. The company has launched pop-up holiday stores at malls across America to promote the new OS and the Surface RT. I had a chance to check in with one of these stores at Aventura Mall in Miami, Florida. The Microsoft team had set up a kiosk in the center aisle. When I arrived, the place was bustling with folks seeing Surface for the first time. A good number of people were waiting in line to claim their reserved tablets as well. Microsoft employees bustled from customer to customer extolling the virtues of Live Tiles and promising that more apps were on the way.

Before you go and buy the Windows 8 upgrade or the DVD from retail store, it is best that you run the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant from Microsoft. Currently, I am on Windows 7 Ultimate. I ran through the Windows Upgrade assistant and was surprise to see the possible issues that I would face.

Select highlights include aesthetic improvements, the improved transfer dialog and the new syncing capabilities."

Asus Vivo Tab RT Review: Windows RT Takes Flight
     Sun, Nov 04 2012 | 9:00A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you've been waiting for the other shoe to drop in the tablet market, today is the day. We're a few days ahead of Microsoft's Surface and Windows 8 launch on October 26th but the folks at ASUS (and other OEM partners) have been given the green light to let fly with their Windows RT tablet offering today. Microsoft is allowing the wraps to slip off of their Windows RT operating system, a branding otherwise known as Window 8 for ARM-driven devices. And interestingly enough, it looks as if NVIDIA has a solid lock on the Windows RT tablet market share, as not only Microsoft's Surface but virtually every Windows RT tablet to hit the market today is driven by NVIDIA's Tegra 3 quad-core system on a chip. So, the sixty-four-thousand dollar question, as they say, is: Does Windows 8/RT have what it takes to compete in the sea of Android and Apple tablets currently on the market, as the Jelly Bean turns? We'll try and answer that question to the best of our ability for you, in the pages that follow.

Microsoft at War: Grading Redmond’s Battle Record
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 9:03A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft sits on the edge of a product launch that is plainly among the most important in the company’s history. It comes at a time when the company’s traditional hardware partners are facing ferocious market pressure from the commoditization of their products, and of course, the juggernaut known as the iPad. As can be expected, the company’s many cheerleaders and haters are out in full force. Pundits can and will pontificate on Windows 8’s chances. However, what might be more useful is looking at Microsoft’s other make or break moments. The upcoming launch is far from the first time that Redmond has fought with its back against a wall. A backward glance at these moments, and careful evaluation of them, may provide a better, ahem, window into the company’s chances this Winter.

Microsoft`s Windows 8 is a bold innovation, melding the worlds of tablets and PCs. Its excellent touch input, an app store, and better performance are compelling, but the changes will be too drastic for some and as a completely new product, a few rough edges remain."

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.
