Seiko SNE093P1 Solar Watch
     Mon, Jun 03 2013 | 10:14A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although Ive been using wrist watches since the early 90`s (back then i only used Casio models as some of you know) i can`t really say the same about all the people i know not even about my really close friends. However as we are getting older and time passes us by it seems that habits change and that`s perhaps the main reason as to why right now pretty much everyone i know of wears a wrist watch while some even own more than just one. Of course as we are getting older we also try to come up with new ways to avoid doing things that we are bored of and one of those things is without doubt the visit to the local licensed watch store in order to change the battery of our watch. That combined with several job descriptions that require a working wrist watch 24/7/365 is the reason as to why it didn`t take long for watch manufacturers to develop several technologies for such use including automatic, kinetic and solar powered mechanisms. According to many people however solar watches can be more reliable compared to automatic and kinetic watches (when it comes to time accuracy) and since these seem to be what people prefer nowadays today we will be taking a look at the SNE093P1 Solar Watch by Seiko."

Wi-Ex zBoost SOHO DataBlast YX550-VLTE-AWS Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Thu, May 23 2013 | 6:37A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Wi-Ex zBoost SOHO DataBlast YX550-VLTE-AWS definitely does what it promises to do, and it does it rather well. With zero configuration, you can greatly improve the data signal strength in your home or office. The review unit was able to take a zone with just about zero signal and subsequently provide 4G download speeds approaching 3Mbps with 2-3 bars showing at all times."

FEZ Review
     Wed, May 22 2013 | 10:14A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When playing the game just to finish it, you will have a good time trying to find everything and going everywhere like you would in any well-designed game world. Getting lost does not matter because you can just keep going through doors, ending up where ever you may, with more items to collect. Once you start trying to complete it and find every single collectible, the experience becomes more irritating and tedious with confusing puzzles and a poorly designed map for getting from one area to another. The basic gameplay is quite good but left me unimpressed, though perhaps that is a good thing, because the world-spinning mechanic was so well implemented that it never stood out to me. The advanced gameplay that follows does not appear to be designed for the average gamer, but even if you can only solve a few anti-cube puzzles without help, you will enjoy doing so."

Posted by: STAFF
In part two of his critical look at the post-Jobs Apple, our resident Mac blogger argues that simplicity is being sacrificed to add features of dubious value, and that the random use of skeuomorphic design elements is ruining the UI. The magic is gone, and it won`t be easy to regain."

Posted by: STAFF
Whether you like it or not, companies have proven that they want our heads in the cloud. Adobe`s recent move to shift its entire Creative Suite there and make it subscription-only solidifies that fact. While there are some downsides to this movement that are blatantly obvious, the biggest devil may be hiding quietly in the details."

Modern Graphics Processor, Part 3: The Nvidia vs. ATI era begins
     Mon, Apr 22 2013 | 4:03P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the turn of the century the graphics industry bore witness to further consolidation. Where 3dfx was once a byword for raw performance, its strengths before its dismissal laid in its full screen antialiasing image quality. By the time 2001 dawned, the PC graphics market consisted of a discrete card duopoly (Nvidia and ATI), with both of them in addition to Intel supplying the vast majority of integrated graphics chipsets.

Prior to the Voodoo 5’s arrival, ATI had announced the Radeon DDR as “the most powerful graphics processor ever designed for desktop PCs.” Previews of the card had already gone public on April 25, and only twenty-four hours later Nvidia countered with the announcement of the GeForce 2 GTS (GigaTexel Shader).

Can Console Gaming Save AMD From Collapse? @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Apr 13 2013 | 12:49P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One year ago Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) company stock was publically trading for $8.20 per share, and since then value has sunk to as low as $1.86 per share, performing far worse than other stocks within the same industry. While the numbers don`t lie, they don`t always tell the entire story. Not so long ago I wrote an article that asserted how game developers would see new demand for their products as the platform technology improved. The obvious winners were those invested in game console production and development, but it was too early to point the finger at many specific names. Sony`s PlayStation and Microsoft`s XBOX platform were expected to thrive well into the next generation, but hardware component suppliers were still an unknown... until now. Unofficially announced, both Sony and Microsoft have selected Advanced Micro Devices as the source of their next-generation console processor needs. How much will this help to save a failing company?"

A Futurelooks News Flash - Futurelooks Checks Out The 2013 BCIT Student Association Spring LAN Party (Video)
     Sun, Mar 24 2013 | 3:50P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the coolest things that Futurelooks does is go out and support events that show great potential to be more than they are today. Over the past year, weve gone out and supported the BCIT Student Association (BCITSA) LAN Party at the BCIT Burnaby Campus in Canada, first in Spring of 2012 and again in the Fall of 2012.

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.
