Time To Cut Microsoft Some Slack
     Thu, Oct 10 2013 | 9:01A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let's stop harping on it. We've already discussed Microsoft's failures and shortcomings with their first generation of Surface and Surface RT devices. The company's $900 million dollar mistake has been bounced around along with Steve Ballmer's tenure ad nauseam and so it's probably no surprise that more than a few pundits and analysts are sounding off so negatively regarding Microsoft's recent Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 unveiling earlier this week. They're too big, too expensive, not retina, too "Windows RT," whatever. What is it about Microsoft that seemingly draws such a critical eye these days, especially when it comes to mobile?

Shooting Target Impact Signal System Bullet Hit Sensor Review
     Sun, Sep 01 2013 | 9:06A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article we field test the Target Impact Signal System III, model DK8-001-III, at ranges beyond 1500 yards. Firing a bullet out to extreme distances with precision accuracy has been the primary goal for sharpshooters since the rifle was first introduced. Modern military training produces lethal snipers skilled with deadly aim that can hit key targets located so far away the shot goes unheard. Long-range shooting requires sharp skills and a high degree of understand to be proficient, but it requires repetitive target practice to ever become effective. To become well practiced it?s necessary to know if a shot hits its target, at distances where sight and sound of bullet impact fail to register. This is where the Target Impact Signal System aids shooters by flashing a strobe signal back to the shooter whenever a bullet hits its mark."

Google Chromecast Review: Yes, It's Worth Every Penny
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 9:01A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Google announced its Chromecast media streaming device last week and immediately caused quite a stir amongst technology enthusiasts. Not only was the Chromecast seemingly easy to use, but its low $35 price point made it attainable by virtually anyone. It didn't hurt that Google was throwing in a three month trial of Netflix with the device as well, but that deal was suspended almost as soon as it was announced due to overwhelmingly high demand. The Google Chromecast is a simple device to understand. It is basically a small HDMI dongle that physically plugs into an HDTV (or other display) and wirelessly connects to a local Wi-Fi network...

Stroll Down Memory Lane: Best 3dfx Glide Games
     Wed, Jul 03 2013 | 12:03P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having a specialized API could be arguably said was both the highlight and the downfall for 3dfx. The Glide API when used in conjunction with Voodoo hardware optimized the overall gaming experience and for the few short years that Glide reigned supreme, several games based its 3d implementation in this proprietary API. If you are old enough, odds are you owned a 3dfx card and played some of these games. Let us take you a trip down memory lane and remember some of the best games ever that used Glide.

Whats Wrong with the PlayStation Vita? @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 4:53P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PlayStation Vita is a great device for portable gaming but its not perfect by any means. I got mine at launch and in that time Ive used it quite a bit and Ive noticed many things both good and bad. Dont get me wrong, I like the PS Vita, but there are some things that I dont care for. So this started out as sort of a top ten list, a list of things that arent that great about the PS Vita. These are things that Ive noticed in my time with it, and its a lot more than ten sadly. So are obvious, some arent, some are big and some are small, some people might find them a reason not to buy one, and some people might not care. We all know nothing is perfect though, most every device and gadget sounds much better in reviews and promotional material than it does when you actually get it in your hands. So read on to see what I found or think is wrong with the PS Vita.. "
