Roccat Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard

IskuWe have just taken a look at the ROCCAT ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard.  This keyboard has a lot of macro-keys and features and functions for the gaming enthusiast.  If you are looking on upgrading the keyboard that came with your shiny new Dell, take a look and see all that ROCCAT offers with this unit.  Our review has all details - both good and bad.

The ROCCAT ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard isn’t mechanical and it almost reminds me of my Microsoft Gaming Keyboard it terms of overall feel.  The keys are built pretty flat on this unit - but not quite laptop flat.  It seems to be responsive with its anti-ghosting end of things and it all goes toward making it quicker and offering a better response time for typing and gaming.

CryEngine 3 Tech Demo

GameStop Switches Tactics

GameStop tries to wake themselves from their money- hemorrhaging nightmare by betting bit of refurbishing Apple products.  This is far from their core strength, but in the age of App Stores, Steam, Google Play and Origin, they need to do something to keep the doors open.  SFGate has more details.

Although Chief Executive Officer J. Paul Raines's 6,600 stores raked in $9.55 billion last year selling the latest "Call of Duty" shooters, Madden football games and other blockbusters, the company's stock has fallen 26 percent in 2012 and is among the most shorted in the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index.


ASUS Audio Action

ASUS makes a few good sound cards and today the TechReport has a look at the Xonar DGX and DSX cards.  These cards are not that expensive, but they do offer a huge upgrade over the stock audio that comes on most motherboards.  If you're looking for something better than the $1 chip that came on your mainboard, take a look and maybe a listen.

The older audio processors that dominate the market are designed for the PCI interface, which is quickly falling out of favor among motherboard makers. Intel dropped PCI support from its consumer desktop platforms years ago, forcing board makers to employ third-party silicon if they want to offer PCI slots. Most still do, but it probably won't be long before the majority of new boards are PCIe-only.


Volkswagon Supports Shark Week


Fistfull of Coolers

As I get ready to take the weekend off and works on some other projects, I've got to get through the news.  After being in Las Vegas where it was 46°C earlier this week, I can appreciate a good cooler for the PC.  Take a look at the fistfull I've found in the inbox.



Blizzard Gets Hacked

It seems that Blizzard has joined the ranks of companies that have gotten hacked and their user base's information is now exposed to the public - or at least other people that shouldn't be seeing it.  Blizzard has posted up some information over at their site.  They claim that no addresses or credit cards have been exposed, but you might want to keep checking your statement - just in case.

In the coming days, we'll be prompting players on North American servers to change their secret questions and answers through an automated process. Additionally, we'll prompt mobile authenticator users to update their authenticator software. As a reminder, phishing emails will ask you for password or login information. Blizzard Entertainment emails will never ask for your password...
