Ten affordable mid-sized Full HD monitors

Select * From Handle

i have 2 BenQ XL2420T

They are amazing....the title of this post though is balls... Firstly "Full HD" 1920×1080 monitors for a start have been around for ages. . Secondly "AFFORDABLE" ? really? my BenQ monitors Burnt a huge hole in my wallet and social life (as i couldn't spend money for months). "Affordable" should be changed to "desirable". Lastly "MID-SIZED" my two BenQ monitors take up an entire work desk THEY ARE HUGE!

Try this title:

10 big ass desirable monitors to make you wet, but ultimately you should get the BenQ 1's because the colours are so vibrant that they will burn your eyes out! The rest of the extras (2ms, 120hz, hdmi sockets) are just a bonus!

Windows 8 fails to revive world CPU biz

Select * From Handle

Vista needed an awesome PC to run it. But now.....

Vista needed an awesome PC to run it I.E... 2-3ghz quad core and at least 2-4gig ram. Now that the OS is fixed so it is fast on older hardware (i.e. Single core 1.8ghz pentium with 1-2gig ram), why would people upgrade the hardware when they can just buy windows 8 upgrade for £40? I can only see gamer's or enthusiasts upgrading hardware...

Surface Sales may be crap because

Like i, People might be waiting for Surface with Windows 8 Pro to come out as that will be a really small table/laptop. But if the Windows 8 Pro version costs more it might be a deal breaker for me.

Re: Power consumption - No its not.... i just ran the tests...

i got the latest version of opera and made sure i had the latest chrome and ran all those tests u linked... these are my results.

http://test262.ecmascript.org - Both passed the ch07 tests fully

http://acid3.acidtests.org - Both got 100/100

http://html5test.com/ - Chrome =434 - Opera= 404 (419 when hardware acceleration enabled)

Hardware acceleration is disabled by default as well, which unless you know about it and can be bothered to Google how to turn it on (as it isn't in settings>prefs) makes it a Fail for me...

are you sure you are looking at Opera when you compare the results...?

N00bs vs Windows 8: We lock six people in a room with new OS

Select * From Handle

Re: OSX Users vs Windows 8 more like.

But the Windows key in Windows 8 is the main key you will be using... like the single buttons on most smart phones these days, the windows key takes you back the main menu (metro ui). which kinda makes it vital for showing new users how you would expect them to use the new Windows 8. its kinda the same as giving someone a new ipad mini to test but taking away the round button...

Guild Wars 2 game review

Select * From Handle
Thumb Down

Re: Hmmm

You obviously haven't played this game... the main content of the game isn't a grind its fun(trying to complete each map) and so is the storyline stuff. But as soon as you get to end game, it IS A GRIND. Want Globs for exotic items? u farm orr... Want the cool looking fire armor you farm COF... They have now made the GRIND worse by putting diminishing returns on grinding events/instances and the magic find skill, to stop people from doing it. Making the grind now last weeks...

The end game is almost as much of a grind as vanilla wow. the only thing that makes the game worth playing is WvWvW...

Shouldn't the title for this be...

Something along the lines of "10 Samsung GS3 challengers or HTC challengers" (what ever was released first) as Apple is late to the party and the iPhone 5 is a catch up phone as they have almost no innovation (compaired to what has already been released this year) in this model ...

There is life after the death of Microsoft’s Windows 8 Start button

Select * From Handle

My main gripe with Metro/Modern UI

Ok the lack of start menu is a bit anoying at first, but i did get used to it and i do love how fast Win 8 is, but.... the modern Ui/metro start menu is horrid. i loved the win7 start menu, not because it was what i am used to but because it didn't in-peed my view of my HD backgrounds... the aero affects also made your own personal backgrounds more erm.. personal as your bars are more see through.. i HATE having to look at the metro when i press the windows key why microsoft only lets u have a few designs and colors i don't know... i think i would like it better if i could customize metro more. Also remove that swipe screen upwards to unlock, it fails for desktops.

Not hard to get around...

"The monitors we detected don't actually collect any parts of the file from the alleged uploader, therefore the evidence of illegal file sharing collected by monitors may not stand up in court,"

Encrypt your storage and then tell them, (i was just downloading legal torrents, distributions of linux and what not)

If they ask you for a password to your storage say "no its got all my personal information in their, like homemade porno's, some sexy pics of my wife and a load of my passwords in files. im not letting you see that.." or "shit i forgot it..."

Was playing this last week.

My review is, yes at first it looks all new. But infact after a few maps it still has the same mechanics as source prolly more closer to 1.6. the molotovs are a nice edition. i think its a good game but when i play it i am looking at it thinking "this is just a CS graphics update" no new maps. But my fav quote i heard in game chat is "its worth a tenner though" which it most definitely is!

Ten movies inspired by video games

No Dead or Alive?

Tbh i was not a fan of the games and the film was shit, but some of my friends rated DOA. would have thought it be on that list tbh.

"With such bad form, it's little surprise Blizzard laughed away Boll's approach to direct the upcoming World of Warcraft film."

Do Blizzard really need to bring in outside directors? Their cut scene work in D3 was mind blowingly good, even though the game sucked. They should be able to make an unbelievably pretty Warcraft film, the story line is already written so surly for them they just need to create the graphics.

YouTube app wrenched from next Apple iPhones, iPads

Facepalm

Re: i think this will hurt apple alot.

Through safari Lawwwwl... Thats adding aleast 4-5 taps of the screen if they have m.youtube.com bookmarked.... if not enjoy typing youtube into search... :D

Web apps usually appear slower than local apps. As soon as you are in an area where you have poor signal nothing will be on your screen... Genius...

YouTube should put a price tag on their app for iPhone it will change the market considerably.

'One of the main things that first got my attention with iPhones was the fact that it could play Youtube on the move! <---- i forgot to mention this was when the first iPhone came out as most phones these days come with some sort of YouTube app...

i think this will hurt apple alot.

One of the main things that first got my attention with iPhones was the fact that it could play Youtube on the move! i never did buy an iphone and i am now glad. TBH i think all google need to do is slap a £9 price tag on a youtube app for iphone, change the website so if it detects safari browser to turn them to the app store and fanbois may flock to android. how will the cool kids show everyone the latest trending vids? Google may even profit from this...

Sony PlayStation Vita

Select * From Handle

Re: Price

The Price is fine.... you have to look at the market is in and then you will realise that its CHEAP. I bought one last week and its amazing. Compare it to the iPad for example (yes i know people say that you cant compare it because its not a console, but since its release people have been saying that alot games are now bought on the iPad and its taking over the market <_<). The Vita is a real contender for the iPad as it is half the price almost, it has a very slick interface and apps. you can already get twitter, facebook on the device and a Netflix app is already out in america (not uk unfortunately) but it is lacking YOUTUBE! i also herd things about skype which would contend facetime as its multi platform not just mac...

SO the comparison.

Yes the vita doesn't have all the apps the ipad has but its cheaper and a better games device, (lets face it ipad is just a big games/facebook tablet, iwork doesn't really make it a productivity tablet yet)

and with some big apps on the way for vita why would you buy an ipad?
