3D Printing vs Patents and Gun Controls @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 12:47A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
3D printing technology has progressed beyond prototyping and developed into consumer production. What was once an expensive process that enabled quicker proto-fabrication has now become an affordable means for regular users to construct or duplicate any object of their desire. Inventors have championed 3D printers as devices favorable to their pursuit of product development, but the same technology will allow consumers the ability to copy patented work or firearms without consideration. The resulting dilemma will play out in courts around the globe as 3D printing devices and the software that coordinates them are steadily improved."

Can you still engage in collaborative development while keeping your costs minimal? Yes, of course. We show you how."

Head Out Of The Clouds: Why Local Storage Matters
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 9:03A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Smartphones, tablets and computers are constantly consuming and creating more and more content. And with that comes massive amounts of data consumption. The amount of sharing that takes place on today's smartphones and tablets is astounding, and every instance of that requires data -- and storage. Lately, it seems as if companies are dealing with these new realities by leaning heavily on the cloud. But trusting your precious data solely to the cloud can be a risky bet.

Is the Gamepad Really Designed for Gaming?
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:29A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Game interface designers recognize how terrible the precision of controller sticks are and pretty much universally decide that a few undeserved kills are better than frustration from constant input failure. Because the controller would otherwise be too frustrating even the most competitive console title includes aim assist. The game might curl your projectile to the target it believes you intend to hit; it might nudge or lock your crosshairs to the target; it may do both and/or some other method. So why not just take away the gamepad since it is worse than the mouse and keyboard?"

Is Desktop PC a Dying Breed? Many Think Not! @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:29A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So the desktop PC is a dying breed, you say. Hmmm, are you so sure about that? Since making such a statement infers a comparison, one then has to ask the question compared to what? Compared to the way it used to be? Considering that we are discussing one of the most rapidly and continuously evolving technologies known to man, the way it used to be can be as little as six months ago. The ongiong need for desktop PCs continues to manifest itself in many ways."

Sony PRS-T2 e-reader review: minus the audio
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 4:01P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sony PRS-T2 is a great successor to the PRS-T1. The differences are perhaps minor, but the new model adds Evernote and Facebook, and improves loading times. The one area where it falls short compared to last year's model is the audio support, that has been left out completely. Even without the audio feature, the PRS-T2 is one of the fastest and complete e-readers that is currently available.

Windows 8 Device Onslaught
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 4:01P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft has high hopes for Windows 8, its next generation operating system that represents perhaps the biggest change to the Windows ecosystem since Windows 95. Intel would call this release a "tock"; Microsoft calls it the future of computing, one in which mobile and stationary products are unified with a touch-friendly front-end that's supposed to be easy to navigate and easy on the eyes with a modernized look and feel. Alas, software is only half of the equation. It takes hardware to push a platform to its full potential, and there will be no shortage of Windows 8 devices when the OS drops in a couple of weeks...

Why I Still Use Windows; an editorial
     Sun, Oct 14 2012 | 9:48A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
But what about the publishers who desire huge short-term sales figures? You might have noticed the countless cries for titles which are more challenging and appeal to somewhat of a niche audience. The logic should be simple: some people desire alternatives to what you produce. You are able to make a lot of money on niche content with a long shelf life. Of course I am not stupid publishers do not care too much about long-term sales because of their reliance on quarterly financial reports. They need to justify their work to their investors and big sales figures provide that validation."

I've got to ask... what's up with the 'unboxing' craze?
     Thu, Oct 11 2012 | 1:45P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

I've got to ask, what's up with this 'unboxing' craze? This kind of content is dead thin on useful information, aside from literally showing what's in the box... a kind of self-evident question if you stop and think about it. Wouldn't you rather check out a thorough review from a reputable hardware review website? Or make your decisions based on qualified test reports rather than circumspect and uninformed 'it looks like it'll perform amazing' type commentary? PCSTATS wants to hear what you think about this, use the Feedback form.

Teen has stomach removed after drinking liquid nitrogen LN2 cocktail
     Wed, Oct 10 2012 | 4:58P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Liquid Nitrogen is something that should be familiar with some extreme overclockers. While it is fun to see benchmark scores breaking 7GHz, it can also be deadly if used wrongly.

At some events, you will usually see some heroes (i call them idiots) performing “swallowing the LN2? trick by pouring a bit into the mouth and blowing it out from nose or mouth. This is actually a stupid and dangerous stunt."

"A TEENAGER nearly died and had her stomach removed in hospital after drinking a cocktail containing liquid nitrogen. Gaby Scanlon, from Heysham in the UK, drank the cocktail during a night out celebrating her 18th birthday in Lancaster last Thursday, the Lancaster Guardian reported. She first felt breathless, then developed severe stomach pain and was taken to Lancaster Royal Infirmary, where doctors diagnosed a perforated stomach. Ms Scanlon was rushed to surgery where her stomach was removed in order to save her life. On Monday she was reported to be in a serious but stable condition."

News: AMD attempts to shape review content with staged release of info
     Wed, Oct 10 2012 | 11:06A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve been reviewing tech products for 13 years. During that time, the basic agreement between the reviewer and the company whose product is up for review hasn`t fundamentally changed--until today. AMD is attempting to re-write the rules in a way that grants it a measure of editorial control over reviews. We think that`s unethical, and we explain why, here:"
