Gamers and computer geeks have a long history of taking in their new gear and making it perform better than it was intended by hacking it and overclocking. If you are a big AMD fan that has been given one of the cool new HD 6950 video cards for Christmas you will really like to hear this about this little hack.
Apple’s iPhone 4 is selling like crazy, despite having been on the market for a while now. DigiTimes reports that its sources in Taiwan are saying that Apple has upped their estimates for the number of iPhones sold globally for Q1 2011.
It always baffles me when people opt for those lightweight, portable, and small hard drive enclosures. Don’t get me wrong, they are easily portable, but there’s one thing that you should know: fast hard drives can generate a lot of heat, and if you external hard drive will be on for hours, then it’s best to get one with fans.
Anyone who’s played games on any modern console knows that your gameplay can be ranked via these Internet connected systems. I remember the first time I plugged in an old Xbox and saw how I ranked in the U.S.
I’ve seen plenty of remote-controlled cars and helicopters over the years, but I can honestly say this is the first one that I’ve seen that starts out driving on the ground, then instantly takes to the air.
Who says you need an full orchestra to play the soundtrack from a modern video game? Musician Diwa de Leon just needs his a violin, a hegalong, a djembe, a tambourine, guitar, his voice and Adobe Premiere Pro to pull off a fully-realized score – all by himself.
CES and MacWorld are just around the corner, so it’s time for all the rampant speculation to start heating up about what exciting new gadgets are coming out in 2011. Among the rumors, many signs are pointing to the release of a refreshed version of Apple’s iPad (aka the iPad 2), and here’s what I’ve been able to surmise.
Okay, this is either the most awesome pile of snow ever, or a great Photoshop job. Either way, with 6 inches of snow in front of my house, I plan on heading out into my driveway later today to attempt to recreate this Jabba the Hutt snowman.
I have often complained that my iPhone has a camera that is crap. The images are always dark, blurry, and just don’t look good. The iPhone 4 is a bit better than my 3GS was, but I still can’t get decent shots.
If you’ve ever tried to shoot video with your iPhone, you know that while the video quality can be pretty decent, it’s almost impossible to get a truly steady shot when in motion. Sure there are apps which can improve the digital image stabilization, but there’s nothing nearly as good as a real Steadicam.
Michael Bay and company continue to slaughter redefine the classic robot franchise. Movie website JoBlo was able to score a few pics of the action figure version of Megatron in Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, and…and… he looks kinda bad ass.
I’m no hardware expert, but for the longest time I’ve been wondering why instant cameras are not commonplace nowadays despite Polaroid’s pioneering technology decades ago. Sure, even our phones can store tons of pics, but nothing beats sharing an actual photo.
I am a big fan of my iPad, and a lot of the time I find the on-screen keyboard irritating. It seems laggy to me, perhaps I just type too fast, I don’t know. If I am typing a lot on the thing, I really want to use a keyboard to speed up data entry and ZAGG has a cool new case that surfaced a few weeks back.
[UPDATE 12/27/2010: Logitech has gone on the record to deny these claims, so it looks like this rumor was unsubstantiated.]
When Google TV first hit the market, I wanted it pretty bad. I want to be able to get lots of online content like Hulu and other video sites on my TV in the living room, but I don’t want a PC in there.
