Jeffrey Powers talks with Netgear at CES about all the cool new products, including the XR500 gaming router and XS10 Gaming switch. Why a Nighthawk Gaming Router? Because when you are in the middle of a heated battle, you don’t want any connection problems. The Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500 router and the Nighthawk SX10 10G/Multi-Gig LAN Switch help optimize network connections, stabilize ping, reduce lag, and generally make sure that you are ‘always-on’ both on wired and wireless connections while playing online games. Otherwise you may find yourself in a fit of rage when bad things happen just as you are beating that boss monster. Nighthawk Gaming with Net DumaOS Netgear has partnered up with NetDuma for the DumaOS – software that...

As part of the Steam Summer Sale, one of the huge deals of the promotion is Skyrim. The game is normally £9.99 but has been reduced to £2.49($4.99). At the time of publishing, there is only one hour left on this deal. So if you’ve been waiting for a good discount on this game, then now is the best time to jump on it. And jump on it now because this is a great game with a metascore of 94/100. For the record, I never actually played Skyrim. I wanted to do so but could not afford the hefty price tag when the game came out. However, now that the game is at a superb discount, I have already pulled the trigger. If this metascore rating is anything to go by, then it clearly is a great game and one you should download for PC. In case if...
It’s that time of the year again folks. Valve has started it’s annual Steam Summer sale as of today. As of today, a lot of games on the Steam Store are going to be heavily discounted. There will be some daily deals which last for 24 hours, flash deals which last for up to half a day and deals voted for by the steam community. There will be new deals every single day. For me, the best deals to be had on day one are Mirror’s Edge(£2.45), Skyrim(£4.99) and The Witcher 2(£2.99). With new deals every day, it’s important to keep an eye out to see if you find a game you like on sale. If you see game that you like, jump on it! There is a good chance that you won’t see a good deal like this one on steam until around Christmas time. Some these...
Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS 6th anniversary of the podcast is upon us! I started this show back in 2007 – named “The Show”. Fourth pair of Google Glass is going back to Google. This time, the camera died. I talk about it on TWIGG. My EmpireAvenue account is at 112 but more interesting is the numbers watching and listening increased. Crowdfund for CES is looking great – we’re planning T-shirts for backer levels. Getting closer to launching the new website to bring more validation to podcasts. I’ve been trying out StreetJelly in the last week – a website where you can listen to musicians playing live. You can even tip them tokens.

You might remember the products. You might remember the hype. Then, you are tooling down highway 41 years later and all of a sudden you think to yourself – “Hey, whatever happened to…” Failed ideas. Maybe it was a great idea, but wasn’t made right, or design errors brought it down. Maybe it was just a bad product. Well, let’s take a stroll down memory lane and see if we cannot repeat these errors again. Oh yeah, why 16? Well because we could. The Computer Watch: Whether it was the Ruputer, the MSN Direct ‘Smart’ Watches, the Timex Data Link Watch or another gadget watch – BTW – I remember having a “Transformers watch”. It was awesome! Still, the Dick Tracey style communication watches, the “Computer on a wrist”, never really hit it off. I even remember a watch that gave you directions. You would put in the...
What’s the difference between “cloud computing” and “networking”? In the immortal word of Yoghurt in the classic movie, Space Balls, Merchandising Bruce Schneir writes in the Guardian: But, hype aside, cloud computing is nothing new . It’s the modern version of the timesharing model from the 1960s, which was eventually killed by the rise of the personal computer. It’s what Hotmail and Gmail have been doing all these years, and it’s social networking sites, remote backup companies, and remote email filtering companies such as MessageLabs. Any IT outsourcing – network infrastructure, security monitoring, remote hosting – is a form of cloud computing. And it is nothing new.
