Steve Dougherty | Video Cards | Wed, Jun 16 2010 6:36 AM CDT

eVGA is now listing its tricked up GTX 480 SuperClocked+ graphics card for pre-order which has quite a bit extra on tap beyond NVIDIA's reference design.

Of course, everyone would be quick to assume it comes factory overclocked, but eVGA also spent a lot of time investigating the stock cooling solution and made some improvements to it with the addition of a backplate and high airflow bracket. eVGA claims you'll see temps of up to 7c cooler versus their regular GTX 480 SC model.

Microsoft waving $ at iPhone game devs to enhance Phone 7 gaming experience

Steve Dougherty | Gaming | Wed, Jun 16 2010 3:54 AM CDT

Rumour is beginning to circulate about a plan Microsoft was hoping to keep quiet in making Windows Phone 7 more appealing for mobile gamers. Word's gotten out that Microsoft wants to make the new platform successful not only in terms of its general user environment, but also from a gaming perspective and is going so far as to entice iPhone game developers to produce Windows Phone 7 ports for them with $$$ being waved in the air.

Whilst this could very much be a win win situation for both parties when looking at revenue potential, the issue is that WP7's underlying development environment is substantially different from that of the iPhone's, making the porting process a lot more involved than one would first think.

Sony wants $400 for PS3 "Move" bundle....

Steve Dougherty | Gaming | Wed, Jun 16 2010 3:11 AM CDT

We've known bits and pieces about Sony's 'Move' controller for a while now. Some more specific details about it were revealed during Sony's keynote at E3 a short time ago, but unfortunately left a bit of a sour taste in the mouths of many members of the audience.

Sony seems to think that despite Mirosoft pricing its highly anticipated Kinect at under 150 bucks (making it just under $300 if you include an Xbox 360 Arcade Edition console in the deal) and Nintendo offering its Wii console with Wiimote and Wii Motion Plus for $199, $400 is still an ok asking price for its Playstation 3 Motion Bundle.

iBUYPOWER demos another advantage of SSDs beyond performance

Steve Dougherty | Storage | Wed, Jun 16 2010 2:53 AM CDT

Most of us already know that there are more benefits to SSDs over traditional mechanical platter based storage than performance alone. Certainly for notebook/netbook users on the go, they are also more attractive due to less power consumption, meaning longer battery life from your system.

Here's another big plus which the folks at iBUYPOWER demonstrated Mythbusters style recently :-

No moving parts = much less likely to fail after some nasty shock treatment; except for when you introduce a hammer to it, that is. Although if you are intending to try your best to kill an SSD (and I can't imagine why?!) you may like to stick with a 'brand name' hammer (refer to video above).

Yes, you read the title right.

Cool iPad dock made from old iMac

Shane McGlaun | Laptops | Tue, Jun 15 2010 2:02 PM CDT

I like my iPad and I have said on a few occasions that it has plenty of power to replace my netbook in many instances. The only thing I don't like about it is having to look down at the screen most of the time.
