RAM Action

If you are looking for RAM, the prices of DDR3 are very low right now.  It makes a 16GB kit of DDR3-1866 like this G.Skill Ares F3-1866C10D-16GAB kit over at APHNetworks quite affordable.  The only downside is that it is CL10 memory.

TweakTown also has a 16GB kit - but theirs is of the VisionTek Ultimate Performance PC3-17000 variety.  Take a look and see what makes this kit so ultimate.

Consisting of four modules of course means we're dealing with a quad-channel kit here today for the X79 platform, but of course there's always the option to use all four DIMMs in a Z68 / Z77 based dual-channel motherboard.


Nintendo Wii U Hands-On

The Wii U is the only new console we are getting this year, so Nintendo does have a bit of a marketing advantage.  CNN actually takes a look at this new console and gets their hands on the device for a demo and plays some single-player and multi-player games and gives us their thoughts.

In addition to games, Nintendo says the Wii U will offer some social networking features, as well as streaming media apps from Netflix (NFLX), Amazon (AMZN, Fortune 500), YouTube and Hulu. The GamePad will add a special feature to these, too.


 

Gargantuan Graphics Gathering

That's right!  As we wrap up this news edition for Monday, we've got a rather large bunch of graphics card reviews to share.



Google Chrome for iPhone and iPad

Google has announced that you can now officially get Google Chrome for both iPad and iPhone today. This is good news for Chrome users who want to be able to sync between different platforms easily. If you want more details on Chrome and some of the features it offers head on over to Google's Chrome Blog.

 One of the most exciting shifts is the explosion of the mobile web. When Chrome first launched, many people were tethered to a single computer. Today most people use multiple computers, smartphones and tablets. With that trend in mind, our goal is to offer you a consistent, personalized web experience across all devices. In February, we released Chrome for Android, which exited beta this week and is the standard browser on Nexus 7, a powerful new tablet.

Starting today, Chrome is also available for your iPhone and iPad. That means you can enjoy the same speedy and simple Chrome experience across your devices. Also, by signing in to Chrome, you can easily move from your desktop, laptop, smartphone and tablet and have all of your stuff with you.


Patent Fight!

In the latest Apple vs. Samsung patent fight, Apple has won a ruling that blocks Samsung from selling their 10.1 Galaxy Tab from being sold in the USA. This isn't the first time (or probably the last) that Apple and Samsung have gone to court over patents and chances are good once Samsung appeals this decision they'll go back and duke it out once again. PCWorld has more on this lawsuit as well as a few others that Apple and Samsung are currently involved in.

 Apple is on a patent tear winning an injunction that bans sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in the United States. Adding to its patent victories the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has awarded Apple 27 new patents, including a patent for scrolling, rotating, and scaling documents on touch screen devices.

The patent win against Samsung is considered one of Apple's biggest wins yet. Late Tuesday a federal court in California granted Apple a preliminary injunction finding the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to be substantially similar "in the eyes of the ordinary observer" to an Apple patent (D504,889) and "virtually indistinguishable" from Apple's iPad and iPad 2.


Microsoft Surface

Microsoft announced their tablet, the Microsoft Surface, a couple weeks ago and now we are getting a few "hands on" articles hitting the news bucket with more details and peoples thoughts on the tablet after getting a chance to play with it. Engadget takes a closer look and overall seem somewhat impressed.

 We're here live at Microsoft's press event in Los Angeles, where it just unveiled not just the rumored tablet you were hoping for, but two tablets: Surface for Windows RT, which has an NVIDIA chip inside, and Surface for Windows 8 Pro, which runs off Ultrabook-grade Ivy Bridge processors. (Yes, Surface here is the name of a tablet line, not software optimized for large touchscreens. Get that out of your system now.) Though the two differ slightly in dimensions, with the Pro model measuring in slightly thicker, both have a slim kickstand, about as thick as a credit card, that folds out of the backside like the tail of a photo frame. Both are made of magnesium and, perhaps most importantly, work with either of two magnetic covers that double as keyboards (one with multitouch input, and one with physical, three-dimensional keys).


Atari turns 40

Atari has just celebrated its 40th Birthday, and for the people reading this that are old enough to remember the Atari, Shortlist has come up with a list of the 10 Greatest Atari games which is a good excuse to take a walk down memory lane.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Once upon a time the Atari was the (only) console of choice and now it’s merely shorthand for unflattering graphics and mercilessly used to make t-shirts ironic.

But our thirst for nostalgia knows no bounds so to celebrate Atari's 40th birthday today, we’ve compiled a list of the ten greatest games to emerge from that demigod of retro home entertainment.


Google Announcements

Google's IO Conference today has produced a few new items that Google fans are going to be very happy to hear about.

First up we've got the Nexus Q, which is basically Google's attempt to take a shot at Apple TV. You'll be able to use your Android device to help control your TV and will be running Android 4.0

2nd up Google showed off the new Nexus 7 Tablet which will be a 7" Tablet running a Quad-core Tegra 3 CPU with a 12-core GPU as well. The Nexus 7 will be running Android 4.1 and be hitting shelves for $199 for the 8GB version and $249 for the 16GB version.

And last but not least, Google announced Android 4.1 which is codenamed "Jellybean". This next version of Android will have bunch of new features and will up the framerate to 60fps to give it a "butter" feel. Jellybean will be coming out mid-July.

More people mad at Facebook

Last week Facebook had a great idea to start displaying everyone's default Facebook emails that they give to every user. People naturally got upset that these addresses were not showing up for them without their permission and Facebook quickly reverted the change. Well, people are still mad and now a advocacy group is asking the FTC to investigate Facebook as a result. Bloomberg has all the details.

The Washington-based advocacy group that triggered U.S. scrutiny of Facebook Inc.’s privacy practices asked the Federal Trade Commission to review the company’s shift to displaying default e-mail addresses for its users.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center wrote the FTC today urging the agency to investigate Facebook’s decision to display @facebook.com e-mail addresses under the ‘Contacts Info’ section of users’ profiles.


Samsung HMX-QF20 Wi-Fi Enabled HD Camcorder

HMX-QF20We have just taken a look at the Samsung HMX-QF20 WiFi Enabled HD Camcorder.  This video camera is more than meets the eye and it has an impressive list of fun features.  Having fun is one thing, but it should do a great job with quality as well.  We find out how it fares on both of these fronts.  Please check our review for all the details.

How do you do a camcorder right these days?  You either have to have some insane quality that you can't get in a smaller device, or you have to offer great functionality and convenience.  Samsung HMX-QF20 tries to capitalize on quality, performance, convenience and features - all with an attractive price tag.  They do this by using flash storage for your video (SD, SDHC or SDXC) and putting WiFi in the camera for backup, sharing and viewing convenience.
