Kingston HyperX H2O 6GB 2000MHz DDR3 Triple Channel Memor
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Remember when 2GB memory kits were considered the optimal choice for any dual channel computer?

Designing more attractive memory modules help motivate consumers and enthusiasts to pick them over others. The HyperX team at Kingston have taken another bold step forward by introducing the HyperX H2O series dual and triple channel memory kits. Is the H2O cool, or does it just look cool?

Microsoft Windows Phone 7 Smartphone OS Review
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It really wasn’t all that long ago that smartphones were virtually the exclusive realm of corporate types, but that has very much changed in recent years. Whereas Windows Mobile once held a strong foothold in the market, Microsoft has since lost out to the likes of BlackBerry, iOS, and Android. Fighting back, the software giant has unleashed Windows Phone 7 upon the world. Windows Mobile 6.5 represented a baby step forward compared to Windows Mobile 6.1 and Windows Mobile 5.0 before that. With Windows Phone 7, Microsoft is starting fresh with a consumer-oriented smartphone OS. Can it challenge the Googles and Apples of the world? Let’s find out.

Thermonuclear Products from CES 2011 - put your sunglasses on...
     Mon, Jan 10 2011 | 4:08P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This year's Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas Nevada, offered some of the most exciting product announcements we've seen in any previous CES show thus far. The past three years' CES shows have been rather snoozy, to be honest, with the economy taking its toll on product design investment and innovation. However, this year's CES showed great promise of not only emerging technologies and product innovations but with the sheer number of announcements and the notable increase in attendance (as well as city traffic, which was a nightmare), it was all a very encouraging sign of the health of our nation's economy and that we're actually finally on the up-tick.

Regardless, we took time here to wrap-up our show favorites from the major players, in this Hottest Products of CES 2011 showcase. These were the stand-outs in our opinion, in a sea of technology deep and wide enough to make any self-respecting geek grin from ear to ear.

ASUS Radeon HD 6850 DirectCU
     Mon, Jan 10 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS EAH6850 DirectCU also includes a small factory overclock, but at only 15MHz the additional clock speeds might not yield a significant return. There is no price mark-up for this modest increase, so this model does not carry a higher premium than reference models. Also, most owners of the EAH6850 will purchase this specific model for the improved overclocking through the voltage control options, and not necessarily for the factory clock settings. With features such as improved cooling, Voltage Tweak and a very affordable price, this could be a card that appeals to the mainstream and enthusiast market."
