With Christmas just around the corner odds are you might be giving someone a gadget that needs web connectivity or you may be expecting to get a device that needs web connectivity. Things like Blu-ray players, game consoles, TVs and all sorts of other stuff need a web connection to work a lot of times. The catch for many of us is that not all of the gadgets have WiFi built-in and sometimes WiFi just doesn't cut it when it comes to getting a reliable connection.

The geeks around these parts slant to the more hardcore than geeks that might normally be looking at gaming PCs from Digital Storm. Most of us probably roll our own rigs, but there are times when machines offered out of a box ready to go have their appeal. This is one of those times.

The machine uses a liquid cooling system that has liquid that is chilled to under 0C using peltier tech.

It's good to see both companies are on the dual-GPU hill this year. Last year AMD (well, back in 2009 it was ATI) were dominating the dual-GPU world with their 5970. Even now, it's still one of the fastest VGA cards in the world (it doesn't matter the amount of cores, just like a CPU).

If you live in an area of the US, where you get cable from Cox Communications the company has announced a new service that will get your attention quickly. The new service wraps a new Trio program guide into a package with a DVR system that works for your entire home.
