Five Free VPN Services You Should Check Out
     Sun, Jun 22 2014 | 4:02P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Totally free high quality VPN services are few and far between. The current business model being used by some is to offer a free basic application with the option to upgrade to a paid, more feature rich version. However, for users simply looking for some extra privacy or sporadically accessing a geo-restricted website these free versions get the job done.

Transistor Review
     Tue, Jun 10 2014 | 7:45A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Should we work to stop the Process, or let the world of Transistor meet that fate? I cannot say. The best you will get from me is that I fail to recommend the game. Please understand that a lack of a positive is not a negative. I would still describe Transistor over all as being enjoyable, but it just has too many issues for me to comfortably say it is worth playing. At best, I find the game to be mediocre or average, with some highs and some lows. It never succeeded in grabbing me and I cannot say that I believe it will grab anyone else. You can have fun playing it, but for me to recommend a game, I should be able to say You will have fun playing it. That is one guarantee I cannot give for this."

News: More light bulbs? Yep more light bulbs
     Sun, May 25 2014 | 9:08A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Internet is a strange and wonderful place. A couple of months ago, I posted a Friday night topic on light bulbs that incited a fair amount of discussion. Not long after that, I kid you not, I started receiving press releases and phone calls from the world`s light-bulb brands, as if it made perfect sense for a website with the tagline PC hardware explored to be writing about LEDs versus CFLs. This is a dangerous development."

We`ve got an exciting System Guide update this time around. The CPU market has broken out of its rut, a spate of new motherboards has arrived, and Radeons have returned to their intended prices at last. Not only that, but we`ve followed reader feedback and broadened our CPU, case, and power supply recommendations, as well. The result is perhaps our best and most thorough guide yet."

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.
