It looks like our representitives are earning their money this week :). Reps Rich Boucher, a dem from Va, and John Dolottle, a Cali repub, are set to intrdouce the FAIR USE.

AMD’s 690G chipset

With the release of the 690G chipset to the public, HTPC enthusiasts everywhere are wondering if this is the next 6150 chipset killer. On paper, it appears to be very well suited with its integrated graphics sporting HDMI out with HDCP.

ReplayTV, quit Replaying!!!


I was just greeted with a lovely SPAM e-mail from ReplayTV, promoting their PVR software and offering me a whopping 20% discount on it. What's the problem with this? Where to begin.

The title is pretty harsh in my opinion. Given that we are only a few weeks removed from the launch date, I am willing to cut MS some slack. Microsoft did not hide what they were selling with Ultimate so why someone would complain on a blog about buying a more expensive version and making a dumb-ass of themselves I […]

Graphical Media Center Remote Front Panel

For example, in a great room style house, you would not need an additional zone to listen to your HTPC, but it would be nice to have an inexpensive solution like this to control your […]

We Have Spam Filtering!

As the title reads, we now have spam filtering for the register and contact process! This should cut down on those annoying posts we have been seeing as of late. Thankfully we have a kick ass systems admin who can get this stuff done. If it were left up to me alone we would be stuck with many more posts about […]
