Microsoft Hardware said Thursday that it has added three new mice to its current BlueTrack Technology-based line of peripherals. The new models will be dirt cheap, costing just under $30, and includes the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500, Wireless Mouse 2000 and Comfort Mouse 4500.
All three were touted with the ability to "virtually" track on any surface, designed for the mobile consumer who doesn't have the room or patience to carry a mousepad.
"If you don’t have the time to research the benchmarks, or if you don’t feel confident enough in your ability to pick the right processor for your next gaming machine, fear not. We at Tom’s Hardware have come to your aid with a simple list of the best gaming CPUs offered for the money.
While there is no new technology here, the refresh represents a solid 100 MHz speed bump for the entire Athlon II lineup, in addition to a couple of Phenom II models.
Microsoft said that it is investigating a security snafu at its Hotmail property that occurred earlier this week. Some Hotmail users report that, upon logging into their account, they would see the inbox that belonged to someone else.
Microsoft quickly issued a statement: "Microsoft is investigating reports of a limited number of instances in which Windows Live customers may have access to other customers' accounts when accessing their account through mobile web browser.
"My first hard drive, entombed in a 1988 XT clone, stored 20 megabytes and clicked and chugged almost as much as my dad’s Buick. Back then, I worried about preserving 30KB text files. Now, I have to preserve, well, everything.
Perhaps like you, I’ve lost count of how many terabytes of capacity I have at my disposal, both on hand and online. We all know that solid state storage is great for speed and for shaving off seconds from your level load times, but hard drives safeguard your life.
Update (1/26/2010): Since the original publication of this story on Tom's Hardware DE, we've shared our findings and benchmark binary with AMD for analysis. The company's commentary is included in our conclusion.
Intro: Aren't All Graphics Cards Equal When It Come To 2D?
Since the launch of Windows 7 a few months ago, graphics card vendors have introduced a handful of new GPUs, working to develop and roll out drivers for their products.
Are you ready for Blu-ray 3D? We aren't either, but AMD is excited to show off its Blu-ray stereoscopic 3D standard. The company today announced that it will demonstrate the forthcoming "standard" at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show.
AMD said that it will be partnering with CyberLink to jointly preview its 3D technology in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Windows 7 has officially been a part of the worldwide mass market for more than a week and a half and now makes up more than 3.6 percent of all PCs tracked by research firm Net Applications.
Net Applications tracks OS usage statistics through information reported by internet browser software. On October 21, the day before the official launch, Windows 7 usage was at 1.89 per cent, according to Channel Register. By launch day, the number hit 1.99 per cent, constantly rising to 3.67 percent it hit on November 1.
Apple is a company that likes to control the experience of its customers. It likes to craft its products from top to bottom, both in hardware and software.
Ever since Apple went with Intel processors, the hardware differences between Macs and PCs became minimal. The software that runs on the hardware, however, remains very different mostly due to Mac OS X.
Even if Windows 7 isn't proven by benchmarks to be the fastest, bestest version of Microsoft's operating system yet, it certainly feels a lot better. We'd use it over Windows Vista any day of the week, but new findings show that it's not the performance king – at least not yet.
Sure, there have been many tweaks under the hood to make it better than Windows Vista, but it seems that boot time is actually longer in Windows 7 – at least according to a certain standard.
One of the advantages that PC users always tout over Linux and Mac users is the compatibility of the Windows platform. Most things are designed for PCs, so naturally the PC works with the widest range of software and hardware. Still, with such a wide range means that there could be many things that might be incompatible or cause conflicts within the system. To mitigate this, Microsoft has created a logo program that identifies a product as "Compatible with Windows 7."
