Mini Altair 8800 Pc Kicks Its Grandaddy’S 8080 in the Ass(Embler)
If you go waaaaay back in the wayback machine to 1975, you might remember a little computer called the Altair 8800. Officially, it was the “world’s first personal computer,” running a speedy 8080 processor which could make the red lights on the front blink in and out of sequence among other things.

Geek Sinks Htpc in Mineral Oil for Bioshock Casemod
Casemods can be cool and often they are very ornate things that I couldn’t hope to replicate because I lack the talent for artistic things. Now a modder going by the moniker “sirleechalot” has shown off his new Bioshock casemod, and this one not only looks cool, it’s something that I think I could build.

Bitfenix Survivor Computer Case is Cheap and Cool
Being a computer geek, I can tell you from experience that not all cases are created equal. I have had cases before that won’t fit my longer video cards and I have had cases where the cooling system let the PC hardware inside run too hot.

Hp Slate Protoype Spy Shots Uncovered: Finger-Clicking Good?
It looks like HP’s foray into the tablet world has been finally shown up in an actual, functional device. The HP Slate looks interesting enough. The only concern is, how will it be priced? Because we can tell you that the Samsung Galaxy is priced higher than an iPad.

Dell 30-Inch Ips Monitor Makes Gamer Geeks Drool
I have been a PC gamer for years now and the best thing I did this side of getting a really fast video card was upgrading to a 30-inch LCD years ago. There are few things better than gaming at 2560 x 1600.

Fps Terminator Game: Consider It Training for the Future
With the robot-loving Japanese here in the East, DARPA in the West and nerd-filled universities all over the world, Skynet will arrive, in one form or another. We should take this opportunity to train to become members of the Resistance, granted to us by our comrade Gridlockshock, aka Kevin Bryant of the Art Institute in Dallas.

Flipper USB Connector is Pure Frickin’ Genius

Flipper USB Connector is Pure Frickin’ Genius
Let’s be honest amongst friends, we all end up flipping our USB devices back and forth in a vain effort to get the damn things to plug in at some point. You try to push your flash drive into the port, it resists, you flip it over and still not joy, flip it again and finally you cram the damn thing into the port in frustration.

Asetek Liquid Cooled All-in-One Pc: Cool Inside and Out

Asetek Liquid Cooled All-in-One Pc: Cool Inside and Out
All-in-one PCs look nice and simple to set up, but they don’t appeal to hardcore computer users because these people know that it’s the insides that count, and PCs with slim form factors generally don’t have top of the line CPUs and GPUs because of the lack of airflow inside their cramped spaces.

Razer TRON Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Will Up Your Geek Cred

Ferrari Themed Racing Cockpit: Good Idea, but Not Perfect
I have been playing racing games on my various game consoles since there were racing games to play. I remember my first racing game, Pole Position on the Atari 2600. I even had one of those pads like you used for Pong as the steering wheel.

Gamesave Manager: the Ultimate Save Point

Gamesave Manager: the Ultimate Save Point
One of the few drawbacks of gaming on the PC is that save data are not easily transferable – the files are scattered in different folders and don’t always have the same format, so hunting them one by one can be inconvenient.

Marvel Super Hero Squad Online: for Kids Only?

Marvel Super Hero Squad Online: for Kids Only?
Gazillion Entertainment is developing an MMO featuring popular characters from the Marvel Universe, and it’s looking really cute. Really really really cute. So cute that older fans of the House of Ideas may find it repulsive.

Super Meat Boy: if Mario Had No Skin and Koopa was a Lot More Cruel

Super Meat Boy: if Mario Had No Skin and Koopa was a Lot More Cruel
Narrative-wise, platformers are the weirdest of video games. After all, it’s hard to build a plot that adequately jutifies hours of running and jumping. Take Super Mario Bros. for example. It stars an Italian plumber who eats flowers and mushrooms en route to beat a huge, spiky turtle.
