CPU Socket Types Explained: From Socket 5 To BGA [MakeUseOf Explains]

Computer processors have a home. The socket. Most people ignore this piece of hardware because it has little obvious functional impact. Sockets don’t hinder or help performance they’re standardized in any given line of processors. Why should you care? If you ever intend on upgrading your processor, the socket on your motherboard will limit the upgrades you can choose from.

Bloodline Champions: Free-to-Play Skill-Based PvP Arena For Competitive Players [MUO Gaming]

Bloodline Champions: Free-to-Play Skill-Based PvP Arena For Competitive Players [MUO Gaming]

Bloodline Champions (BLC) is a top-down F2P game with high hopes: to create a game where players can play against each other in an arena that rewards skill, not repetition or luck. If you’ve ever heard of the term “e-sports,” this game is a prime candidate. It’s all about aiming, timing, reacting, and making the right decisions – and it’s HARD. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, though, as a game that rewards skill wouldn’t be very rewarding if it was easy.

7 Vital Google Image Search Hacks

Where do you go when you need to search for something? Probably Google. Where do you go when you need to find images? I’m guessing the same again. Google’s image search has been around for over 12 years, and in that time, it’s advanced from being a cute novelty feature to a powerful search tool, with billions and billions of indexed images. With all these images right at your fingertips, how do you go about finding the one image you’re really looking for?

3 Neat Web Services To Visualize & Analyze Your Last.fm Profile

With over 215,000 plays starting since 2008, I’ve always been a firm believer in Last.fm. If you’re into getting social on the Internet, it’s so much easier to link a friend to your Last.fm profile versus going on and on about your musical preferences. Last.fm allows your tastes to be an open book to anyone who might be curious, and I like that. Over the past few years, Last.fm has solidified itself as the best music scrobbling platform online.

How To Build a Media Center That Will Play Anything

I’ve been building a media centre recently. Actually, scratch that – I’ve been building two. One is a compact device (my Raspberry Pi) running the RaspBMC distribution of XBMC, while the other is a traditional HTPC home build – a media centre in a slimline PC case with added TV card. At this stage I haven’t quite decided which system I’m going to stick with long term, so I have a sort of competition running between the two.

Turn Your iPhone Into A Gamepad With Joypad Legacy [Mac & Windows]

Recently I have been away from home, with only work, an iPhone and a MacBook Pro to entertain me. While searching for a way to play a few multiplayer games I hit a snag – a distinct lack of controllers. While looking for a solution I came across Joypad for iPhone, and the now slightly outdated Joypad Legacy app. Using a Mac or Windows PC and a couple of iPhones, it’s surprisingly easy to turn your handheld iOS device into a touchscreen gamepad.

Bring Back An Old Classic With Pinball Deluxe [Android 2.1+]

Whenever I think of pinball, I always think of the Space Invaders version of pinball which was installed by default on Windows XP. It was a fun game to play – and definitely more visually appealing than solitaire – and has therefore become a classic in simple computer games. Now that we’re overrun with mobile devices, there’s a lack of those old classics on these devices.
