- ASUS ROG Maximus V Extreme review - There can be no doubt
that when it comes to overclocking, the ASUS Maximus V Extreme packs an incredible
amount of features - more than any other similarly priced board. Making
use of all these features does have its caveats, and taking full
advantage of everything the board offers does require specific
hardware, but you will not buy just any part when it comes to breaking
- The Full Intel SSD 525 Review: 30GB, 60GB, 120GB, 180GB &
240GB Tested - All of the 525 members feature the same ~12.6% spare
area (~14% OP). Despite the reduction in number of NAND packages,
the 90 and 180GB models aren't actually any slower than the 60GB and
120GB versions respectively. The reason that performance doesn't suffer
when going to these odd sizes is because Intel/SF do a good job of
parallelizing requests across all NAND die within a package, of which
there are physically more in the 90/180GB configurations compared to
the 60/120GB models.
- Surface Pro: Excellent Performance, Gorgeous Screen, Poor
Battery - Even though Surface Pro isn't due to launch until
February 9, reviews for the tablet went live tonight.
Not surprisingly, reviewers loved the tablet's screen and its speedy
Core i5 processor, but blasted the horrid battery life that puts it at
the bottom of the pack.
- Google Chromebook Pixel with 2560 x 1700 Touchscreen (Video) -
The supposedly leaked video, embedded below, showcases the new
Chrome OS-powered notebook from Google
and it's looking to be much more of a powerhouse than its predecessors.
For starters, that display is an impressive 2560 x 1700 pixels and it
also happens to be a touchscreen. If it were not for Chrome OS, I'd
almost say that this was going to fall into the lap of the current crop
of Windows 8 touchscreen notebooks. The Chromebook Pixel, which is also
apparently being called the Chromebook Link, is reportedly being tested
right now at Google's offices.
- Dell going private in $24 billion deal - Dell has
confirmed what's been rumored for the last few weeks by announcing
plans to go off the publicly-traded stock market and into private
hands. According to a press release issued moments ago, the transaction
will be financed through a combination of cash and equity from founder
Michael Dell, funds from investment firms Silver Lake and Michael
Dell's MSD Capital, a $2 billion loan from Microsoft, plus debt
financing from a number of banks. All in all the deal is valued at
approximately $24.4 billion.
- Bitcasa: unlimited cloud sync & storage for $69/year, 10GB

offering unlimited space with no file size
restrictions for $10 per month -- or just $99 per year.

- The Pirate Bay Documentary Now Online - The Pirate
Bay documentary is now online.
- Dead Space 3 exploits allow players to avoid in-game fees -
GameFront showed how some of the exploits work,
with one requiring the user to go a specific location, pick up an item,
and then save and quit before returning to the game to loot the item
again. Another of the exploits is as simple as walking into a building
to pick up an item, and then walking out and returning again to find
the item has immediately respawned. It sounds like extremely bad
coding, and many people will be unaware they are even exploiting the
game in this case. An exploit is considered any use of the game in an
unintended way, and does not necessarily have to result in the player
profiting from its use. Often times they are discovered by accident,
which a player can claim in their defence, but repeated use, which may
be logged on the game servers, could show deliberate intent to exploit
- How to Delete Your Facebook Profile Permanently - Have
wanted to just trash your Facebook account completely but found that it
was so much easier to sign up rather than sign out? Well help is on the
way in step-by-step directions to get your account
completely removed once and for all.
- Dont Gen't Scroogled by Gmail - Outlook.com launched Don't Get Scroogled by Gmail,
a national campaign at http://www.scroogled.com to educate Americans
about Google's practice of going through the contents of all Gmail
emails to sell and target ads. According to a public GfK Roper study,
commissioned by Microsoft Corp., 70 percent of consumers don't know
that major email providers routinely engage in the practice of reading
through their personal email to sell ads - something that 88 percent of
people disapprove of once they are informed. Unlike Gmail, Outlook.com
doesn't go through the content of users' emails to show ads.
Outlook.com hopes this campaign will help educate consumers about
Google's email practices and promote Outlook.com's policy of
prioritizing the privacy of its users' emails.
- New Flash Update Fixes Active Exploits - Go plug your
Adobe hole before someone sneaks in a back door and exploits you.
Make sure you only use this link because, in true Adobe style, the

software before installing a fix for two zero-day exploits
- Android App That Infects Your PC - Kaspersky Labs

your microphone to spy on you.
- Eight Characters Will Crash Almost Any Application on a Mac - All
software has bugs, but this one is a particularly odd one. If you type "File:///"
(no quotes, the f must be capitalized) into almost any app on your Mac,
it will crash. The discovery was made recently and a bug report was
posted to Open Radar on Thursday. It only gained a lot of attention on
Friday night though, thanks to a Hacker News submission. First off,
it's worth noting that the bug only appears to be present in OS X
Mountain Lion and is not reproducible in Lion or Snow Leopard. That's
not exactly good news given that this is the latest release of Apple's
operating system, which an increasing number of Mac users have switched
- Wine demoed on Android, runs Windows apps - Wine,
the well known
and loved software that allows you to run Windows apps on other
platforms such as Linux and Mac OS X, has been demoed running on Android at the Free and Open
source Software Developers' European Meeting (FOSDEM).
- Ubuntu Smartphone to ship from October 2013 - The Linux-based OS will soon find itself inside a
smartphone. It will also arrive on tablet computers and aim for the
work desks of professionals, especially those from the IT sphere.
According to Mark Shuttleworth, founder and CEO of Canonical Ltd, this
will enable users to share data seamlessly between PCs and portable
devices as well as enhance access privileges to corporate date. The
immediate challenge that the new platform will find is penetrating to
the high-utility mobile and portable device OS market, with Android,
iOS and Windows Phone running the show. BlackBerry 10 also looks quite
promising, should RIM decide to dig into its capabilities deeper.
- BlackBerry Z10 Review - The
has what many might consider a generic appearance. There are no
eye-popping colors like we've seen with Windows Phone 8 devices, nor
any bold curves to elicit the cliche labeling of a phone being "sexy."
It's an all-business box, rectangular and overwhelmingly black except
for the silver-colored buttons that appear in limited areas. That's not
to say that being all business is boring; the Z10 just so happens to
have a design that favors minimalism. The 130mm x 65.6mm x 9mm (5.11in
x 2.58in x 0.35in) frame is basically the "Little Black Dress" of

- 10 cool things to do with your newly-Jailbroken iOS device - If
you have not jailbroken an iOS device in a while, you might
wonder what all the excitement is surrounding a launch of the evasi0n
jailbreak tool for iOS 6. (Note: Some people are having issues with
the default Apple Weather app after install.) Over the years, many
features that were once jailbreak-only made their way to iOS or via
third parties through the App Store. However, there are still many
things you can do with jailbreak tweaks that aren't possible on
non-jailbroken devices. Here's a list of some of the most interesting
and useful tweaks that caught our attention in recent months.
- Epiphany One Puck Juices Up Your Smartphone - All you
to do is to place a hot object such as a piping hot mug of your
favorite coffee on the red side, or if it is a sweltering summer day,
then an ice cool mug of Coke on the blue side, followed by hooking up
your smartphone. If you have faith in the Epiphany
One Puck, then pledging $99 will net you a single Puck, where it is
tipped to retail for $150 should the idea take off in a massive manner.

Making use of all these features does have its caveats, and taking full advantage of everything the board offers does require specific hardware, but you will not buy just any part when it comes to breaking records.
I've got it's baby brother, the Asus ROG Maximus V Gene. It's a wee beaut. And will do me for years. It will overclock my 3570k twice in its CPU cycle automatically, when I need to. It's sound is brill and has more features than a horse can shit 8)
