Run a business and need “ultimate” data protection? If so, Acronis’ just-released ‘Backup Service’ could prove useful, as its feature set is immense.

The release date for Windows 10 still isn’t locked-in, but it seems Microsoft is wasting no time in preparing us for it – even if we don’t realize it. In late March, an update (KB3035583) was released through Windows Update that lays the groundwork for upgrading to the upcoming OS. As Myce…..

Never Mind The Bollocks - Here's The Sex Pistols

In case it hasn’t been proven obvious enough up to this point, the UK has a serious beef with sex. To be more specific, it has a laundry list of sexual acts it deems inappropriate, and it also dislikes the ease in which someone could procure sexual materials; eg: images and video.…..

Late last week, GOG.com announced that it’s begun allowing owners of old-school CD keys to submit them to the site to unlock the same game on the service – all at no cost. Perhaps not surprisingly, the current list of supported titles is modest: CIS…..

AMD FX Processor Box

Released this past fall, AMD’s FX-8320E processor promises to deliver a lot of processing power for those on a budget. It sports eight cores, and as a Black Edition, its overclocking capabilities are unrestricted. But is that enough to make this the best go-to budget processor, especially for gamers?

Grand Theft Auto IV - PC Launch Date

I admit that I haven’t had a great opinion on Rockstar Games for a while, what with Red Dead Redemption never coming to the PC and Grand Theft Auto IV being a buggy mess at launch. But, for better or for worse, the company has been wearing my angst down with Grand…..

Goodbye SATA, hello PCI Express! At long last the tyranny of the SATA 6Gb/s interface is over. Intel has taken the wraps off its first PCIe based consumer and workstation solid-state drive, and it’s a doozy. The 750 Series is a fully functional PCIe Gen 3 x4 drive with bootable NVMe support,…..

NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X

NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX TITAN X is the world’s latest fastest single GPU solution. But does that mean we should just leave it alone, and ignore its true potential? We could, but that’d be boring – so join us as we take a look at the TITAN X from an overclocking perspective, and…..

Windows 10 Transparent Start Menu

Windows 10 is shaping up to be an amazing apology for Windows 8, and while not everything might be ideal (read: Start menu), there’s little doubt that it’ll be the best Windows OS since 7. As we’ve just discovered, though, there’s one feature (if we can call it that) coming to Windows…..

What would you do if you lost everything? That’s what the website behind the backup movement asks, and it’s a good question. All too often, those who have to deal with a hard drive failure don’t have the data on that drive backed up to another, or to the cloud. It’s just gone,…..

EVGA GeForce GTX 980 HYBRID

The top-end temperature of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980 is about 80°C, and while that seems a bit high, it’s well within dangerous levels. Still, I wouldn’t blame anyone for wanting to see even lower temperatures (that goes for any piece of hardware, really), either for the piece-of-mind, reduction of overall system heat,…..

Grey Goo is the newest kid on the real-time strategy block. It was created by veteran RTS studio Petroglyph, and while this title may have the pedigree, does it mean that it will win our hearts and minds when going up against the crowd favorite MOBA? There’s only one way to find…..

Thecus has just launched a brand-new N5000-series NAS, and it packs one hell of a punch. Like all other N5000 series NASes, the N5810PRO includes five drive bays. Where it largely differs is with what’s under the hood, and at the back. Powering the N5810PRO is a beefier CPU – Intel’s Celeron…..

Rogers Cable TV

It’s not often that Canada’s CRTC instills me with much confidence, but its latest move is without question a great one.
