• Overclocking tool adds $1600 worth of speed to your Mac Pro


    But at what cost? This tool from ZDNet allows for super-easy overclocking of your Mac Pro. Until recently, overclocking has been one of the few remaining legs Windows users had up on Mac users, from an objective standpoint at least. The OC tools I’ve used on XP have ranged from the graphic to the obscure, and from the stable to the ridiculous. This ZDNet tool looks pretty simple, but… Read More

  • Median TV viewer now 50 for first time: Internet, video games to ‘blame’?

    The TV networks had better figure out how to make advertising work on things like Hulu, for it seems young people aren’t watching as much live TV as they used to.

The four major networks all ticked up in age, with the exception of CBS, which has always been a… Read More

  • New Eees to sport bigger keyboards


    The micro-laptop revolution is a really cool thing, to be sure, but not all of us were born with slender, precision-tip hands. I do all right but some of these baby keyboards make me feel like I have ten thumbs. Well, Asus must have heard the cries of the lumpy and misshapen, because the new iterations of the Eee, the 904 and 905, will have more comfortably-sized keyboards. Of course… Read More

  • That picture of Microsoft's MyGamerPad is fake

    An unfortunate little rumor had been going around last week, suggesting that Microsoft was planing to launch a PS3 Home competitor to be called MyGamerPad.

  • Bhutan bans laptops in government

    The Bhutanese assembly has banned laptops in the house in order to prevent lawmakers from becoming distracted while, well, making laws. With democracy, it seems, comes the terrible lure of FreeCell which, as we all know, is what got us into our whole economic mess in the first place. If the SEC paid as much attention to due diligence as they did to to Bejeweled we wouldn’t be in a recession. Read More
