I figured another expansion would be announced this weekend, but between a new game, movie news and the like, ...

    • An Exciting Post About AssCreed Unity’s PC Performance

      By Alec Meer on November 12th, 2014 at 12:00 pm. Now that I’ve a) got code and b) got said code to run after a ton of tinkering, I’ve spent a couple of hours with gaming’s latest whipping boy, Assassin’s Creed: Unity.

      By Jeremy Laird on November 20th, 2014 at 9:00 pm. One word. NVMe. Take it from me, you want some of it. So, you’d better start to get your head around it. Luckily, it’s all you need to know about solid-state drives or SSDs over the next year or so. Well, that and whether your motherboard can support NVMe.

  • Bluebuds X (Hardware) Review

    … Bluebuds X (Hardware) Review Jaybird’s Bluebuds X headphones just might be the best wireless set of buds that you’ll ever use. I love the idea behind wireless earbuds.

  • Week in Tech: Mobile Gaming Update

    … was yet another Dell (an 8500) with one of the first widescreen panels (a proper 1,920 by 1,200 item, none of this 1080p crap) and a GeForce 4 Go. Great panel, same GPU as the best desktop GeForces of the day, albeit lower clocked. Awful chassis.
