Rogers wins Worst ISP in Netflix Speed Index
     Mon, May 12 2014 | 2:29P | Web News | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rogers comunications wins the honour of WORST in Netflix' just released Canada ISP Speed Index. According to Netflix, Rogers comes in with an average spped of 1.67 Mbps, while competing services such as TechSavvy score and average speed of 2.76 Mbps. The fastest service, according to Neflix is Bell Canada - Fiber Optic with an average speed of 3.19 Mbps.

www.pcstats.com

"The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a monthly update on which Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide the best primetime Netflix streaming experience. As a country, the average speed for Netflix in Canada beats that of the United States, but ranks below most European nations.

The Netflix ISP Speed Index is based on data from the more than 48 million Netflix members worldwide who view over 1 billion hours of TV shows and movies streaming from Netflix each month. The listed speeds reflect the average performance of all Netflix streams on each ISP's network and are an indicator of the performance typically experienced across all users on an ISP network. A faster network generally means a better picture quality, quicker start times and fewer interruptions.

Note: the average performance is below the peak performance due to many factors including the variety of encodes Netflix uses to deliver the TV shows and movies as well as the variety of devices members use and home network conditions. These factors cancel out when comparing across ISPs."

Caterpillar REEF D5.163.21.127 Watch
     Sun, May 26 2013 | 2:09P | Web News | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s quite normal for people to check out all the usual and well-known brand names when they are out to purchase a watch either to own for themselves or to give as a gift to someone really close. For example some friends of mine always like to buy Casio G-Shock, Timex and Suunto watches because they consider them as the best for extreme sports and scuba diving due to the durable materials used and extra features like depth meters, barometers, GPS etc. I on the other am always on the lookout for new watch models introduced by Casio, Seiko, Citizen, Sector and quite a few other brands that i happen to respect and trust. However in a market where new players emerge every day it`s somewhat important for people like me to keep an open mind and that lesson was taught to us by Caterpillar since it wasn`t only until recently that we had a chance to check out one of the latest watch models added to their collection, the REEF."

The Samsung Series 5 535 is a 14-inch ultraportable that isn`t quite as light and portable as some other similar laptops but it does have an optical drive and good graphics capabilities. It is powered by an AMD CPU, which does well against its Intel counterpart but it does come up slightly short."

[Tech ARP] Why Apple Maps-gate Could Have Been Avoided (Or Not) Rev. 2.0
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 3:42A | Web News | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The furore over the new Apple Maps doesn`t seem to be abating anytime soon. Every day, there are new articles on how the new Apple Maps has just directed someone to walk into a river, or converted the mighty Derwent River in Hobarts, Australia into a lake... This may seem like your typical fare from Apple detractors, but the fact of the matter is most of these people who are complaining are... Apple users! At the same time, there is a constant slew of articles or commentaries defending Apple Maps as anything from a good start to no one gets it right the first time. They may be right, or they may just be die-hard Apple fanatics. But it doesn`t seem like the tit-for-tat is going to end anytime soon. Even here in Tech ARP, we have different opinions on Apple Maps and how well they handled the aftermath. Let`s take a look..."

Posted by: STAFF
GPU heat is the by-product of any awesome gaming experience and managing it is a never ending task. ASUS DirectCU II series video cards feature an impressive custom designed cooler for this reason. It is a flagship among ASUS video cards that sport hand picked GPUs, enhanced voltage regulation management (VRM), and are assembled with their own unique higher quality components. But the question is, do all these enhancements make a truly a better graphics card? Will it really live up to strict gamer standards for heat management and for overclocking? We literally took the ASUS AMD HD 7970 DirectCU II video card a part in order to find out. *"

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.
