Most gaming services don't show other users your IP address as things like a DoS could happen. Unless they are the admins of the game or you are using a third party service that they have access to such as a Teamspeak/Ventrillo server, guild/forum web server, etc. Be careful of what you visit. Also, even the best router is not going to stop your internet pipe from getting flooded with incoming packets.
So if a person is about to step out from behind a parked car and the driver is actually paying attention to the road, send him an alert to the dashboard which makes him briefly take his eyes off the road to read a message? Seriously?
What is this poll asking? If internet access is "required", then less than 1Mbit satisfies most web/email. Streaming video requires more. Faster speeds just make downloads quicker. If asking what we prefer, then greater than 100MB would be the answer. It seems like most people are answering with what they have.
The network monitor looks nice for troubleshooting. I'll be using that in the future. It also has a 3D button which is pretty cool, good for showing the different elements of a web page. I don't care for the sharing feature. I guess the icon only shows up if you login to Facebook, so I'll never see it.
With Starfriend, the SC2 LAN enabler, 3-4 days a week after hours at work with coworkers.
Agreed, but the fall of Blizzard started with the closure of Blizzard North, a few years before the Activision merger.
Blizzard used to by favorite gaming company. Now I loathe them. The recent huge disappointment of Diablo 3, the no LAN play in SC2, and with how I heard they seriously dumbed down WoW, Blizzard won't be getting anymore of my money.
Yes, I agree the apps are useless, but my Samsung SmartTV is great for playing
.mp4 and .mkv files. It will even play .mt2s files you can find on Blu-Ray disks.
I just plug in a 1 TB WD Passport portable hard drive to my TV, and use this as my media center. No extra devices need to be turned on. It can also play directly from computer shares, but my wireless access of the TV to the living room is quite poor.
Yes, the lite version seems to be what I'm looking for. Thanks!
Agree, although I would say at least two pairs for work, but shoes for mowing the lawn and for comfort could be considered the same.
And I thought they were talking about this magnetic toy that I have a few sets of and thought how odd. http://www.getbuckyballs.com/
Agreed. Adding in a Voodoo card and then running glquake instead of software rendered quake, was just draw dropping.
Instead of paying $179 for a 3TB 7200 TB drive, it makes more sense to pay $129 for a 3TB 5400 RPM drive such as this Hitachi:
and then add a small SSD with the savings for the OS/apps. The new BIOS/chipsets even allow you to combine them so that the SSD is used as a large cache drive.
Looking at all of my devices (monitors, computer, keyboard, mouse, phone, etc.), everything is rectangular with rounded corners. The only variance is how much the corners are rounded and how thick it is. What nonsense.
