  1. Review - Opera for Windows

    9.50 Build 9981 Beta (May 10, 2008)

    Opera is the best, K-meleon feels and acts like it's in an alpha phase. Although fast, no difference between the two on my 4 meg connection, but lacks in almost everything compared to Opera and firefox for that matter. Stick with the pros and go Opera. 5 Stars

  2. Review - RyanVM's Windows XP Post-SP2 Update Pack

    2.2.2 (May 6, 2008)

    seier needs to check the facts, Microsoft sp3 is available through windows update.

  3. Comment - Sony pulls PS3 update after some gamers report bricked systems

    2.2.2 (Jul 5, 2008 - 11:20 AM)

    You must not know how to google, it's a wonder how you found this site. Here are the facts ONCE AND FOR ALL Why PS3 is better than 360:

    Processor: xenon (360) 3 cores @ 3.2 GHz
    the cell (PS3) 7 cores @ 3.2 GHz
    PS3 Has a much stronger processor

    GPU: xenos gpu (360) 500 MHz & 48 pixal pipelines
    reality synthesizer (PS3) 550 MHz & 24 pixal pipelines
    xenos is slightly more powerful than the synthesizer, BUT what the true gamers will tell you( as I am about to now) games rely on cpu much more than gpu.

    Hard Drive: 20 GB NOT upgradable only 13 GB available (360)
    60 GB SATA 2.5 " HDD FULLY UPGRADABLE (PS3)
    This makes the PS3 HDD 47 GB bigger and reads ALOT faster because of serial ATA technologies.(bobthegoat should stay on the farm and leave the computer specs to us city folk)

    RAM : XBox 360 features 512 mb RAM All of which can be accessed buy the cpu & the gpu. The RAM is clocked at 700 MHz.
    The PS3 RAM is split into 2 RAMs. CPU RAM & GPU RAM, which both add up to 512mb. THE GPU RAM is clocked @ 1.3 GHz, that's nearly TWICE as fast as the 360 RAM. The CPU RAM is clocked @ 3.2 GHz The GPU can borrow RAM for the cpu.
    The 360 ram doesn't stand a chance against the PS3 ram.

    USB Ports
    XBox 360 has 3 USB ports, 2 in the front 1 in the back.
    The pS3 has 6 USB ports 4 in the front of the console.
    PS3 is again the winner here.

    Reliability:
    10,000 XBox 360s get sent in each week to MICROSOFTS repair center.The XBox 360 has a failure rate of more than 33%. MICROSOFTS response" but but it's cheaper"

    The PS3 has a failure rate of 0.2%. This means that the PS3 is 150 times more reliable than the XBox 360.

    More features better than the 360:

    1. Far more reliable than Xbox 360. No red-ring of death failures that must be sent off for a fortnight to repair.

    2. Blu-ray is going to win the next generation format. The PS3 has the cheapest blu-ray player that your going to get.

    3. WiFi built in. No more Ethernet cables across the room. Excellent browser - watch youtube videos, check and print email and play Macromedia Flash games.

    4. Your PS3 has another cool party trick – use your PS3 as a phone to call your friends who are logged on via your Bluetooth headset.

    5. PSOne and PS2 backward compatibility + PSP connectivity, file and multimedia sharing over WiFi.

    6. Six-axis. Motion sensor wireless controller. Also comes with a free USB cable to charge.

    7) High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) 1080p and Digital Audio. Superb graphics and audio on games, that holds up to 4x more data than other game discs.

    8. PS3 exclusives: Metal Gear Solid 4, Genji: Days of the Blade, Final Fantasy XIII, God of War 3, Heavenly Sword, Kill Zone 2, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.

    9. SATA hard disk drive. You can choose any SATA hard drive instead of having to buy one from Sony. MS charges 200+ just for 120GB hard disk.

    10. Distributed research making use of the PS3’s CELL Processor. When you’re not playing games, why not put it to good use and help find a cure for diseases. (folding@home)

    10. Don’t have to spend 75 + a year just to play against someone online.

    It's always a pleasure to serve you the facts about software and hardware. Please feel free to bow down to the PS3.
    Oh don't forget I'll also own you on your Xbox 360.

  5. Comment - It's official: Mozilla's Firefox sets Guinness World Record

    2.2.2 (Jul 4, 2008 - 5:24 PM)

    Congrats to Mozilla I also helped acheive that record, but still think Opera is way better.

  6. Comment - Sony pulls PS3 update after some gamers report bricked systems

    2.2.2 (Jul 4, 2008 - 5:17 PM)

    Ok, new patch re-released after only a day, go figure. Again the support from Sony is far better than Microsoft. I have both by the way ( 360 & PS3) so I can not feel your pain terminalx or any other one dimensional gamers who continue to hate on the best gaming system in the world. PS3 outmatches 360 in every single way and will continue to do so for the next 10 years. It's funny how these broke ppl who consider themselves educated in the gaming industry could try and down play the best graphics, gameplay, and most importantly HARDWARE for the 360 that comes in a far SECOND. You can reach all you want but you'll never have the money to find out.
    P.S. If you want to lose to me some more, why don't you send me an invite on the 360's greatest game out C.O.D.4. That's if you can afford Xbox Live.

    Yountmj, you must NOT remember the last update for Xbox 360 when it crashed tens of thousands of Xbox live servers leaving gamers stranded over the new year weekend, only to promise to comp a free game in which I nor anyone I know ever received.
