Four-Slot GPU with Integrated Liquid Cooling Spotted

If you're looking for a graphics card to hog as many slots as it possibly can, there are several three-slot solutions available. These are generally large air-cooled units that offer great performance with low-noise. Recently, a four-slot GPU has been spotted and it looks like it features its own self-contained liquid cooling system that uses three 100mm - 120mm fans to keep things chilly. The site is in Chinse, but surprisingly, the images are in English.

Chromecast Causing Boot-Loops on Some Routers

The latest batch of Chromecast devices may or may not have a bug that can cause certain routers to crash and then boot-loop. This is causing a bit of a shadow on Black Friday sales as the devices themselves boot-loop as well. Chromecast Audio and Chromecast Ultra seem to be affected as well. The downside is that it's hard to update the firmware to a fixed version if everything keeps looping. The solution is to use a different router if you're currently affected. Once you update the firmware, you should be good to go.

"After the update of Chromecast Audio some BT Home Hub and Plusnet routers trigger a reboot and disconnect the Chromecast Audio from the network. This issue seems to be isolated to some BT related routers. Our team has been working to address this issue quickly by adding a workaround for the BT routers in our next firmware version which is now available for download.”

DroneGun Drops Drones Over a Mile Away

There are quite a few different systems around to help put drones down, and some of them are safer than others. The DroneGun is an up-and-coming piece of technology that jams drones on multiple frequencies and does so in such a way as to not damage the drone long-term. I love this idea as I could take down drones and then sell them back to my neighbors after they were trespassing with their technology.

Google Asked to Remove a Billion Pirate Searches a Year

Google gets a lot of email. In fact, they get over 1 billion requests a year to remove pirate related searches from their results. There are a lot of "pirate links" floating around the web and with the current crackdown against piracy, it's no surprise that Google gets hit up thousands of times a day to help put a stop to this. The crazy thing is that out of those billion plus links, over 908 million were removed because they do in fact infringe.

More than 90 percent of the links, 908,237,861 were in fact removed. The rest of the reported links were rejected because they were invalid, not infringing, or duplicates of earlier requests. In total, Google has now processed just over two billion allegedly infringing URLs from 945,000 different domains.

HyperX Cloud Stinger Review

We have just posted up our review of the HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Headset. This headset promises a lot of features for only a little money, but often these promises are too good to be true. Take a look at our review to see if it delivers or if your money would be best spent elsewhere.

In looking back on this headset one can’t help but be in awe of the great quality this headset has to offer at such an affordable price. The signature memory foam padding along with the light weight make for a combination that allows for long extended hours of gaming with a very comfortable experience. From time to time I almost forgot I was wearing the headset...

Lenovo Yoga Book (Android) Review

The Lenovo Yoga Book is an interseting concept. The keyboard is a giant touch-sensitive piece of glass and the machine itself comes in Android and Windows flavors. The review today is of the Android version and being that it's powered by an Atom x5-Z8550 processor, it has plenty of power to run the mobile OS. Things that separate this 2-in-1 appart from the competition also include a nice full HD IPS LED touch-screen, a Book Pad, AnyPen the Halo keyboard and more.

AnTuTu's results pretty much explains themselves. The machine is great at multitasking and handles graphics well. The game that I'll typically test out graphics performance with is Injustice: Gods Among Us. It's a pretty heavy game and, well, it's a lot of fun. I had no problems playing it on the Yoga Book.

Phil Spencer Wants Nintendo Games on Xbox

Phil Spencer is the big boss of Xbox over at Microsoft and he loves Mario. Not that he's "coming out" or anything like that. He just sees that Nintendo has one of the strongest first-party game portfolio's and he'd love to see some Mario make it's way to the Xbox. Nintendo has a touch choice here. With such a strong tie to the much-loved Mario, they need to keep the games to their own console - if they want to sell consoles - but at the same time, more games sales = more revenue. Interesting interview linked below.

"I’d love to see Mario on Xbox," Phil says enthusiastically. "As someone who’s been in this industry and played games forever, I’ll still say it: Nintendo has the strongest first-party of anybody. They’re just fantastic and the memories that they have instilled in so many of us, who’ve played their games and had those delightful experiences, having those on Xbox would be great.

AOC Claims Fastest Gaming Monitor Title

Monitors are an amazing deal right now. There are a bunch of 4K displays that are relatively cheap as well as some high performance and high quality displays that have really become very affordable. When it comes to high-performance displays, AOC has taken the performance crown (in terms of specifications anyhow) with their AG251FZ display. It claims to have a 240Hz refresh rate and Grey-to-Grey response times of 1ms. It's worth checking out at least.

The AOC AGON AG251FZ comes with a 130mm height-adjustable 'Ergo Dial' ergonomic stand which can also tilt (-3.5/21.5 degrees), swivel (-10/20 degrees), or pivot to portrait orientation. Alternatively the monitor can be fitted to a 100 x 100 VESA mount. For portability the AGON AG251FZ includes a carry handle.

Saumsung to exit PC market?

The rumor of the week is that Samsung is looking to get out of the PC market with a sale of their PC division to Lenovo. Samsung has had a tough time gaining market share in an already crowded PC market and Lenovo has gained a fair amount of share thanks to acquisitions (Lenovo bought IBM's PC division back in 2004). The deal is still a rumor and would take a while to gain approvals, however, it is being rumored that Samsung's PC division could fetch close to a billion dollars. Neowin has the full story.

Samsung is reportedly getting ready to sell off its struggling PC business to Lenovo, and retire from the personal computer market altogether. The deal would see the largest PC vendor become even bigger, and comes just months after Samsung sold its printer division.
