- Best Gaming CPUs
For The Money: September 2013 - In this month's update, THG introduces a staggering 14 processors, which
mostly include Haswell-based CPUs that trickled down to the Core i3 and
Pentium families. There are a few surprises from the Athlon X4 760K,
Core i5-3340, and Ivy Bridge-E line-ups.

- Security of Data on Disk: HDD vs. SSD - Here's a
rather interesting video that explains the difference

- Google Nexus 7: The Android Tablet to Beat - The Nexus 7's Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC is very speedy,
making short work of multi-tasking and 3D gaming. But what's even
better is that despite a smaller battery, more powerful internals and a
slimmer design, the Nexus 7 actually lasts longer than its older
brother, thanks to clever software and firmware optimizations. Although
the Nexus 7 has only an average camera, no expandable storage and a
selection of tablet apps that doesn't quite cut it up against the iOS
App Store, the device is still a superb choice. For just $220 you're
netting yourself a premium-quality system at an unbelievable price,
making it hard to pass up for anyone looking at a portable, multimedia
- NVIDIA Unveils the Tegra Note; 7-Inch Android
Tablet Powered by Tegra 4 - What we do know about the Tegra Note is mighty impressive, as it's a 7", Android
tablet with a Tegra 4 processor at its core, plus 16GB of
built-in storage that can be expanded with a microSD card. Audio is
handled by front-facing speakers and NVIDIA PureAudio technology to
deliver some of the best sound found on a tablet. The 7" touchscreen is
an IPS panel with a 1280x800 resolution, and if that isn't big enough
for you then just use the micro HDMI port to connect it to your TV for
some big screen action. NVIDIA is including a stylus with both Brush
and Chisel tips for writing and painting, with DirectStylus technology
for a more responsive experience. There are also some included apps for
easy note taking. A five megapixel camera on the rear and a VGA camera
on the front sound fairly normal, but the Tegra Note's camera is really
something else. NVIDIA's Tegra 4 helps deliver the processing power to
the camera, while Chimera computational photography architecture brings
some new features to the mix. There's also SmugMug's Camera Awesome app
(one of iOS' best camera apps) with exclusive Tegra 4 features, like
"tap-to-track" and 100fps video recording for slow-mo playback. If you
want some gaming, well there's NVIDIA TegraZone to take full advantage
of that Tegra 4 processor. Battery life on the Tegra Note is promised
at 10 hours for video playback. The NVIDIA Tegra Note will be launching
worldwide, through the partners mentioned earlier, over the next
months. Retail pricing on it is an affordable $199.

- Apple TV update includes iTunes Radio, AirPlay from iCloud - Apple
has released a
software update for their Apple TV set-top box that delivers a
number of new features and services. Chief among them is iTunes Radio,
the streaming music service that debuted alongside iOS 7 a couple of
days ago. Other new features include AirPlay from iCloud, iCloud Photos
and Videos which replaces Photo Stream, iTunes Music Store and
conference room mode. AirPlay from iCloud works much like Google's
Chromecast in that it allows users to utilize iOS devices to play
videos from iTunes in the Cloud. In other words, content will be
streamed directly to Apple TV rather than going through your iOS
iCloud Photos and Videos allows users to view media that has been added
to a shared photo stream on their television. Podcasts are now also
available via the set-top box with the ability to sync playlists and
favorite stations between the box and other iOS devices.
iTunes Music Store support now permits Apple TV owners to browse music
downloads, purchase tracks and play them directly through the set-top

- Tradinno the Dragon: The World's Largest Walking Robot - Created
by Germany's Zollner Elektronik AG, Tradinno is a main attraction of
Drachenstich or "Slaying of the Dragon", a traditional folk play which
has been performed every August for the past 5 centuries at Further
Drachenstich in Bavaria, Germany. In the past, the performance made use
of a mechanical frame as the dragon, which was controlled by four
people from the inside. Then Tradinno, which is fully controlled by radio, was
introduced to the festival back in 2010. Tradinno not only weighs
in at 11 tons, but this behemoth is also 51 feet tall and has a
wingspan of 40ft. The robot has achieved the 2014 Guinness World Record
for the World's Largest Walking Robot. The fire coming out of it is
fueled by liquid gas. The fuel and 21 gallons of fake stage blood are
stored below Tradinno's polyurethane and glass-reinforced outer layer.

- Physical and virtual gaming worlds collide in Lexus IS Hybrid
promo - Lexus invited some of its Facebook fans out for the
game, which put them in the passenger seat of a Lexus IS Hybrid
with former F1 shoe Jarno Trulli. They were then handed a tablet and
asked to trace out a road, which was projected onto the floor of the
hangar. Trulli had to follow the ever-changing path as his passenger
kept on tracing away. It looks like it'd be an absolute riot. This is
probably the coolest automotive promotional video since Audi strapped
paintball guns on a couple of RS4s. Take a look below to watch the full
video from Lexus. We promise, it's worth two minutes of your time.
