Facebook to Soon Require Use of its Messenger Mobile App to Send Messages

Posted on April 15, 2014 6:55 PM by Rob Williams
Facebook Messenger Logo

As much as Facebook as a service can sometimes aggravate me, Facebook as a company has done little to bother me. Sure, it’s made some moves that I’ve found inconvenient, but none have caused me to make it a mission to complain about it – not even through a simple status update. That track record […]

Since its founding a couple of years ago, Uber’s proven itself to offer a pretty reliable service, and a convenient one at that. In fact, I’m betting that some would consider it to be invaluable. It sure beats trying to hail a cab, or talking to a dispatcher who clearly doesn’t care about their job, […]

Samba Network Shares in Windows 7

In this article, we take a look at installing and configuring Samba, creating some shares, and then accessing those shares across a variety of platforms. One of the most […]

NVIDIA Quadro K6000

Having been announced at NAB earlier this month, this isn’t brand-new information, but I still find it interesting enough to talk about. A little while ago, I had learned that NVIDIA was working with Adobe in order to enhance RED 4K support within Premiere Pro, and the fruits of that labor are now being seen. […]

Autodesk Maya LT 2015 Steam Header

Steam’s software section hasn’t quite exploded at the seams with titles since its introduction in late 2012, but of what is available, most looks quite good. This is especially the case if you’re a developer; from 3D graphics to audio, there are many solutions available. Steam has been lacking some big names on the development […]

At the forefront, the driver adds support for NVIDIA’s latest mobile GPUs, and also takes care of numerous […]

Heartbleed: Why You Should Pay Attention

Heartbleed

When I caught a quick glance at a “Heartbleed” mention on Tuesday, all I thought was, “Oh great, another vulnerability”. Then, I brushed it off. Of course, now it’s well-known that it’s not just “another vulnerability”; it’s genuinely severe, and one that all server admins need to look into, and potentially deal with. Fortunately, Techgage’s […]

Gearbox Announces Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Due Out This Fall

Posted on April 9, 2014 4:36 PM by Rob Williams
Borderlands - The Pre-Sequel

A leak that hit the Web earlier this week has proven true: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is in development. I’m not quite sure this could be considered “Borderlands 3″, because just last month, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said that the company was not actively working on any Borderlands projects. Either he was fibbing, or 2K Australia is […]

Thunderbolt Networking To Gain Windows Driver Support

Thunderbolt Networking

Despite the time that 10Gbps networking has been around, so far it has failed to catch on in the consumer market, price being the major contributor. While the idea of paying $50 for a Thunderbolt cable will make many baulk, the truth of the matter is 10Gbps Ethernet makes that $50 look like free lunch. […]

RPi Compute Module

It’s been two years since the Raspberry Pi was first released. It started a little rough due to manufacturing delays, but has ultimately taken the world by storm.

AMD Radeon R9 295 X2

It’s going to be in the running for the worst-kept secret of 2014, but it doesn’t matter: AMD’s Radeon 295X2 is designed to noticed, and incite an enthusiastic response from those who look its way.

NVIDIA launched its GeForce Experience app last May, and at the time, I wasn’t too sure of what it’d become. From the get-go, it boasted the ability to optimize your games with ease, but past that, I am not sure I realized that NVIDIA would keep piling new features on. Fortunately, it did. ShadowPlay, GameStream, […]
