Valve Marketing VP: The PC is no longer a Viable Platform 200°
May 22, 2008 // 10:44 pm - The PC is all about casual gaming. The PC market is dying. We've heard it all before, and so has Valve's Marketing VP Doug Lombardi.

What does Valve think of the PC Gaming Alliance? Are they as tired of the PC gaming "problem" as we are? What is at the root of the issue, anyway?

Shack: Do you guys ever get tired of the same old "PC Gaming Is Dying" stories?

Doug Lombardi: I mean, I think, we sort of laugh at it. Because we've been wildly successful--we're very fortunate, you know. Our games have all done really, really well, Steam has taken off and...

BoxxX is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this year and in order to celebrate the occasion, the company assembled an ultimate visual effects machine based on Intel's Skulltrail platform and Core 2 Extreme processors.

Leaked Windows 7 Features Video Demonstration, Possible M2 50°
May 13, 2008 // 10:23 pm - Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates noted during the Japan-Windows Digital Lifestyle Consortium, held in Tokyo on May 7, 2008, that the Redmond company was "hard at work" by his own measure on the next iteration of the Windows client referred to as Windows 7.

The product number practice coming to replace the traditional codename policy is the work of Steven Sinofsky, Senior Vice President, Windows and Windows Live Engineering Group, and so is the deadening silence surrounding the operating system.

However, bits and pieces of Windows 7 slipping through the tight grip...

Bill Gates Promises Windows 7 to be Less of a Resource Hog 50°
May 13, 2008 // 10:11 pm - There are but scarce details pointing the direction in which Microsoft is taking the development of Windows 7, and the operating system, for that matter.

Nevertheless, if Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates is to be believed, Windows 7 is going to be less of a resource hog than its predecessor, although such a comparison can only be speculated upon and was not actually stated.

On May 7, 2008, one day after the Redmond company dropped Windows XP SP3 via Windows Update and the Download Center, Gates was in Tokyo, Japan, at the Windows Digital Lifestyle Consortium and...

Logitech Dinovo Mini for PS3 Reviewed! 200°
May 10, 2008 // 2:01 am - We all know using the PS3 on screen keyboard to type, can be very tedious. So tedious, that I have had people whom I've sent a PSN message to, reply via email, just so they could just type on their computer.

I didnt really want a huge full-sized keyboard and mouse setup, as I game from the comfort of my couch. I dont have the space for it and its inconvenient.

There is a thumbpad accessory for the PS3. But many have reported that it was a waste of money, even some people claiming it couldnt even connect to the PS3.

So what is a PS3 owner to do to be able...

Logitech Driving Force GT Review for PS3 50°
May 9, 2008 // 5:51 pm - I was well and truly stuck about a third of the way through the A Class races in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. When you're starting in last place and playing catch up with an equally powerful car, making just one mistake means you're toast - especially on a speedway-style circuit.
