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."

Windows 8 vs 7 - Gaming Performance Radeon HD 7970 @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 12:06P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Windows 8 is coming out soon, very, very soon. Microsoft`s latest operating system will be released ... Tomorrow, in fact. So we wanted to know how good this new OS will perform with games. So we decided to compare it to it`s predecessor. Going from Windows XP to Windows Vista/7 we did notice that the performances were as near as makes not difference, the same. So, what have we done? Right we took some (15) games and a almost a handful of theoretical benchmarks and checked wether there are suspicious thing going on or not."

The Windows You Love is Gone
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 10:37A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Windows Server is even more telling. Windows Server is not a consumer operating system and yet your choice is the Modern UI, a telling name to occasionally replace Metro with, or Powershell. Visual Studio Express was WinRT-or-bust until developer outcry made Microsoft sweat. Just this week Bill Gates discussed how Windows 8 and Windows Phone platforms are evolving literally into be(ing) a single platform. Compare Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8: Windows RT is the middle ground. Do not be surprised if Microsoft intends to remove the cancer."

* You`ve heard it here first: Microsoft is about to release a new version of Windows. Called Windows 8, the OS aims to change the way we use our computers, and it`s been built from the ground up with touch in mind. Like all other OS releases, there`s both things to admire and things to complain about. First, we`ll tackle the latter."

[Tech ARP] Why Apple Maps-gate Could Have Been Avoided (Or Not)
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 9:48A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The furore over the new Apple Maps doesn`t seem to be abating anytime soon. Every day, there are new articles on how the new Apple Maps has just directed someone to walk into a river, or converted the mighty Derwent River in Hobarts, Australia into a lake... This may seem like your typical fare from Apple detractors, but the fact of the matter is most of these people who are complaining are... Apple users! At the same time, there is a constant slew of articles or commentaries defending Apple Maps as anything from a good start to no one gets it right the first time. They may be right, or they may just be die-hard Apple fanatics. But it doesn`t seem like the tit-for-tat is going to end anytime soon. Even here in Tech ARP, we have different opinions on Apple Maps and how well they handled the aftermath. Let`s take a look..."

Windows 8, The TechSpot Review
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 4:03P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First, let's get something out of the way. Most of what's really new in Windows 8 relates to the Metro touch interface, which is Microsoft's biggest bet on this OS generation -- a bet that's risky but necessary given the company's lack of presence in the growing tablet market. This is also how the folks at Redmond have figured could give a needed boost to its smartphone business (“Windows everywhere”), which is well behind market leaders, iOS and Android. This review is based on my experience with Windows 8 using a desktop, so I've been treating Windows 8 like most computer enthusiasts will: as a direct upgrade from Windows 7 on my custom-built machine, just like I did with Vista, XP, 2k, and other previous Windows releases.

[Tech ARP] ED#141 : AssistiveTouch Bug In Apples New iOS 6
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:48A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year, I wrote about Apple`s blahblahblah, a nifty little feature that most of us thought was to make it for the disabled to use the Apple urban haute bourgeoisie. Well, that too, but it also allowed us, able-bodied people, to protect the iPhone`s less than robust Home button so that it wouldn`t die on us so quickly. Needless to say, once you tried it, you will likely not go back to using the Home button. Now that I`m used to it, I find it much easier to use the AssistiveTouch button than the actual Home button! I`m sure quite a few of you feel the same way too. Fast forward to the release of iOS 6, and this urban haute bourgeoisie feature starts getting the wrong kind of love. "

We`ve taken Windows 8 for a spin on Asus` new Zenbook Prime in order to get a feel for the new OS`s PPI scaling capabilities. As we found, Windows 8`s suitability for systems with high-PPI screens may have been exaggerated."

Patriot's 32GB EP Series Pro is billed as the memory manufacturer's flagship secure digital flash media card, designed for HD video and photography enthusiasts. With nearly five times the transfer speeds compared to regular SDHC cards (90MB/s read and 50MB/s write), Patriot has created one fast SDHC which just might be the secret ingredient in helping your camera score those high speed shots.

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.
