Buyers who want Apple’s quality without the “Apple tax” may find the ageing iPhone 4S appealing; but they should also beware of its disadvantages.
Looking for the best gaming laptop around? We’ve got you covered.
The release of Diablo 3 for consoles was, to say the least unexpected; so much so that its announcement was actually a bit disappointing, as Blizzard’s appearance at an early Sony PlayStation 4 press conference seemed to hint an entirely new game. Predictably, porting one of the PC’s most beloved franchises to the console has caused a fair share of grumbling; diehard computer gamers have, as always, turned their noses up at the couch experience.
The iPhone is an incredibly powerful and convenient device, capable of storing all of your contact information, making calls, finding restaurants, and much more. Yet all of this comes with a potential risk; the loss of privacy. Many users want to know exactly what data their iPhone stores, and how it’s shared. The good news is that most information doesn’t leave your phone with your permission, but once you’ve let that data into the wild, you can’t take it back.
While most gamers find plenty of fun in playing games, some want to go beyond interacting with a world and dive head-first into creation. Customization of levels, characters, items and more can, if available, give creative players hundreds of hours of enjoyment.
The Second Punic War killed my interest in fiction. Tolkein’s fantastical Battle Of Helm’s Deep seems but a minor skirmish compared to the Battle of Lake Trasimene, where Hannibal managed to hide his entire army, surprise the Romans, and drive them into the lake, killing an estimated 15,000 with less than 2,500 causalities of his […]
A good chair is an office worker’s best friend. The best office chairs in the market are just a click away, and some of them are more affordable than you may have guessed.
Power is unpredictable. A car crashing into a pole or a small flaw in a transformer’s equipment can cause a blackout or, in some cases, a surge strong enough to destroy most electronics in your home. Although rare, these events can knock your computer offline when you need it most and cause thousands of dollars of damage to other electronics.
Computer crashes often occur suddenly and with little obvious warning. Once it happened, there is not much you can do, other than wait for the reboot or manually force a reset. The randomness with which a crash can strike is what makes it frustrating; one moment your PC is fine, the next it’s down and your files with it. Most crashes are not as random as they seem, however. There are a number of potential warning signs. Here’s the issues to look for – and how to fix them before they cause any harm.
Classic video games are usually popular because they’re the best examples of their era, so it’s little surprise that gamers flock towards these titles. But even the best games, unlike books and movies, eventually go out of print as old hardware is replaced by a the new. Once the last copy is sold, that’s it, game over. This creates a vibrant and expensive trade in classic games of yesterday. Titles that are considered classics, but didn’t sell well at their initial release, are notorious for skyrocketing prices. Gamers on a budget must look on in dismay as games over a decade old sell for $15, $30 or even $60. But if you have patience, and some spare time, you can find ways to beat the market.
Senior citizens often find themselves looking for products that are powerful yet easy to use, not only out of a desire to simplify, but also because older buyers can often afford exactly what they want. Not every tablet will do for a crowd as discerning as senior citizens. They want a product that just works, and works well, but also provides access to books and videos as well as communication with family. Here are three picks wonderfully suited for those needs.
There are still some titles that faithfully provide an excellent couch experience for multiple players. They either allows for up to four people to play at once, or provide an entertaining enough experience to keep those left to watch entertained while they wait for their turn. Games that can successfully pull of couch co-op are the cornerstone of dorm room gaming and a great way to keep broke college students entertained.
For many the $1000 mark is an important cut-off. Computers under this are generally considered affordable, even “mainstream,” while those exceeding it are looked at as luxurious items. The average selling price for a PC has meandered between $500 and $600 for the last five years, so even $1000 is a stretch for most buyers. But can you really buy decent gaming PC for less than a grand?
When the computer arrived in homes many parents wondered; is this just a toy, or a tool for education? My mother decided that it was the latter, and while she was wrong (it’s both!), the PC did become a portal for learning. Today’s parents face the same question, but with tablets rather than PCs. These new devices are less expensive and more portable, yet some critics contend they’re not useful and are best for entertainment, not learning or work. Is this true? Or does putting a tablet in a child’s hands give them an edge?
Apple computers, like all of the company’s products, are supposed to be more intuitive and user-friendly than the alternative. Generally that is true, but there are some areas where Macs clearly fall behind the competition. Gaming is one such area. Gamers who want to use a Mac shouldn’t give up hope, however. The experience is not as simple as it is with Windows, but with the right software and hardware, it’s still possible to have an experience similar to what PC gamers enjoy. Here’s what you need to know to get the most out of Mac gaming.
