Kingston HyperX Skyn Gaming Mousepad Review
     Wed, Apr 29 2015 | 9:00A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are two types of mouse pads: Cloth based and hard pad. Kingston, on the other hand, introduced a paper thin plastic sheet, an adhesive layered mousepad with friction and smooth surface called ‘HyperX Skyn’. As someone who used Razer Goliathus Control Oversize edition (the first make that I bought in 2007 and lasted nicely until 2014 when the cloth started to fray and tear) and the currently used- Corepad XXXXL mouse pad that measures 47.20 x 23.60 inches with 300mm thickness, i curious how is my experience with the paper thin gaming mat is going to be.

NVIDIA CEO And Elon Musk On Autonomous Cars
     Mon, Apr 13 2015 | 12:00P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the highlights of today’s opening keynote at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference in San Jose (GTC), was NVIDIA CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang’s invited special guest, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk and the “fireside chat” the two were scheduled to hold. Frankly, it was a bit shorter than expected, but when two visionaries take the stage, time does tend to fly, figuratively and literally. There’s no question, Jen-Hsun Huang is a visionary when it comes to visual computing, but Musk, Musk thinks way outside the box on a lot of things – from Electric Vehicles, to Hyperloop supersonic transport, to autonomous cars that are so reliable, they're safer on the road than humans.

Interview with DJI: Future of the Phantom quadcopters
     Thu, Jan 22 2015 | 12:03P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“All of our products are continually evolving, whether it’s the Phantom series or the Spreading Wing series, we’re always looking at how to fill the gaps of consumer demand and we’re always innovating. For the next series, we’re looking to improve ease of use and flight safety. It’s also no secret that the entire industry is moving towards sense-and-avoid technology, which allows the aircraft to know where objects are and steer out of their way. But then there’s also other sensors that we would like be able to attach, so we’re working towards a more easy and open platform that allows people to use the Phantom for different uses. And we’re also looking at the sensor size and specs of our cameras. All those things will be coming to future generations.”

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.
