  1. Yay for extended warranty!!! Even though it is quite expensive, it has payed off a number of times for me, where devices have died/broken just weeks after the expiration of the included warranty period. Also, thanks to places such as JB Hi-Fi who have made it super simple to claim warranty.
  2. What should I review next?

    Sony Xperia XZ1 compact review, looks like it will be one of the best/only compact android phones of 2017.
  3. Researchers discover a large email spam list

    Sorry Repost:
  4. Sony unveiled a new small form factor camera, called the RX0, designed for rugged expeditions and underwater filming. The Camera packs a massive 1" sensor into a body that only measures 59.0 x 40.5 x 29.8 mm. a form factor that is even smaller than the go-pro hero 5 black. with the larger sensor, compared with the XZ premium, it should capture much better low light shots as well as better slow motion in minimal light. It is also of note that it will also support S-Log2 recording which will give much more flexibility in post. This looks like it might be one heck of a camera, and really shake the action cam industry.

  5. A recent gigantic data leak reveals that some 711 million email addresses, and even some passwords, have been used by a massive spambot, designed to spread malware that steals banking details and infects people’s computers to pump out more viruses as well as vast amounts of spam. Troy Hunt, who owns the website HaveIBeenPwned, said the leak was He also states: It is highly recommended that users of any compromised email accounts change their account Passwords as soon as possible.

  6. What should I review next?

    Samsung galaxy s8 active.
  7. Dell Updates XPS 13 with Intel 8th Gen Quad Core CPUs

    wow, well now the HP Power Pavilion that i just bought with a 7700hq and 1050 now seems really large for a laptop with a Quad-core. Its an awesome laptop by the way, highly recommended.
  8. 64 GB of internal storage seems so small compared with the rumored 512GB option in the upcoming iPhone 8.
  9. OS for Media Server

    I've Used CentOS and that has been really stable and reliable, It took me a little bit to get used to after going from using Mint and Ubuntu. If you have experience with Ubuntu, i'd probably use their server version
  10. XD, Haha, thanks for correcting me.
  11. Mac Pro and iMac Pro with i7 7900X on Geek bench

    Actually the original 5K iMac only came with an undercloked quad-core i5, and even that thermal throttled real easily. I'm not sure how their going to cool an 18 core i9 with a TDP likely over 140 Watts, even if it is undercloked.
  12. YAYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!! Samsung it seems has finally heard our cries, and will no longer be selling their Active SKU as an AT&T only device. While it will be available only on AT&T exclusively for a short period of time, afterwards, Samsung will sell the device on other carriers, as well as possibly in other countries. (Australia, Samsung. Are you listening?) this marks an important milestone for the Active series, that Samsung must now view the Active as a viable product, and a product that will do well in other markets.

  13. it looks like apple may not actually be using Intel's server processors for their 'pro' grade desktop and AIO, and will instead be using their latest HEDT processors. looking at some geek bench results, this does seem to be the case. Although please note that as it is only based on two benchmark results, so take this with a grain, or maybe a few grains, of salt. Another reason to take this with an over sized grain of salt is that directly on apple's website, they state that you will be able to configure the iMac pro with an 18 core Xeon and up to 128 GB's of ECC memory. Thus questioning the legitimacy of these results. Here are the original entries: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/3637194 https://browser.geekbench.com/geekbench3/8425993

    Actually I heard that it was only AT&T exclusive temporarily, also that it would come to other markets. Awesome! http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s8_active_for_at_t_goes_on_preorder_tomorrow-news-26627.php http://www.techradar.com/news/samsung-galaxy-s8-active-verizon-sprint-t-mobile-unlocked
