Next PlayStation to launch before next Xbox

The rumors around the next generation Xbox and the next generation PlayStation has been swirling for a while now but in recent weeks it now looks like Christmas 2013 appears to be the date both companies are looking at to launch their next products. Sources are now claiming that the next PlayStation (which might be named Orbis) will be shipped before the next Xbox and they are planning on allowing you to use your PS Vita as a controller. Both of those rumors would be good news for PlayStation fans, Gamespot has more.

The PlayStation 4--believed to be called the Orbis--will ship before Microsoft's next-generation console, according to a mystery source speaking to VG247.

The site's tipster said the design ambitions for the PS4 were set "at least" two years ago, and Sony is "confident" that it will release the console ahead of Microsoft's next Xbox.

Arctic Blu-Ray Media PC

Arctic has certainly diversified over the past couple of years and eTeknix has one of their non-coolers.  They look at the Arctic MC0001-BD Blu-Ray Entertainment Center in their latest review and find out if this Dual-Core Atom D525 running Radeon HD5430 has enough power to fulfill your entertainment needs.  It's a pretty slick little beast that comes pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Premium to boot!

Unlike other devices on the market, this is not just an entertainment or media centre but is a fully fledged desktop PC with Windows 7 Home Premium bundled on it, so that you can do work, surf the web or use it as its main purpose, being a media/entertainment centre.

What Would You Do For an Ice Cream Sandwich?

Most of us Android nerds probably have been waiting for the new Ice Cream Sandwich update to roll out.  I know I am.  As you may know the update has been out for some of the Samsung Galaxy/Nexus phones, but it is no where to be seen for most devices.  Now that the Galaxy Note has a leaked version, that makes me wonder where is my update at?  Check more info at Engadet.

For its part, Samsung has been none too coy about the upcoming Android 4.0 release for the Galaxy Note. So far, we know that it's set for a Q2 debut and will pack a new set of S Pen apps, but if you've longed to jump into the frozen goodness a bit early, today you can rejoice -- a leaked build of Ice Cream Sandwich for Samsung's fabulous phablet has reared its head in the forums of RootzWiki.

Windows 8 Has Some Metro Challenges

Windows 8 has been talked about around the web and among techno geeks everywhere (and on WTU).  Microsoft is trying to bring Windows 8 to most computers and laptops around as well as putting it on Tablets and Phones.  The Metro interface makes it more touch screen focused but they are also trying to incorporate desktop style for those that have a keyboard and mouse sounds.  This isn't easy.  There will be lots of coding to be done for browser and application developers to make it work.  I have a feeling it's not going to be a fun ride as there is lots of configuring to do for both interfaces.  Firefox is one browser that is leading the charge.
If a browser does not support Metro, it is seriously at risk of losing the default browser status, and therefore significant market share," Bondy explained. "A browser without support for Metro, if default, would be taking away a Metro browser completely from the user's computer.

I guess we will see what happens with Windows 8!  CNET has more


Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Fan

NoctuaWe have just taken a look at the Noctua NF-F12 PWM Fans.  While a fan review may not sound all that exciting, the difference that a good fan can make in your system is amazing.  There is a lot of science behind these new fans from Noctua so make sure you check out our review to find out at what point they become "silent".  All the details are over here.

The biggest question we get about fans would be, "Is it silent?" Chances are good that all four of these fans would be pretty much undetectable in most peoples systems even when running at full speed.  We hooked each of them up in a quiet room to see just how slow they would have to spin before we couldn't hear them anymore. For our testing we hooked them up to an adjustable fan controller and manually tested their speeds with a digital tachometer while standing approximately 2 feet away from the fan.

Samsung Chronos Laptop

HardwareLook has a look at the new Samsung Chronos laptop that comes loaded with a Core i7 processor, 3GB of DDR3 and a nice 1600x900 display.  In the end, this laptop is pretty sweet as it even can handle some games with a Radeon HD6750 graphics processor.  I'd take one of these.


The Samsung is a expensive Notebook, but definitely worth splashing the cash on as the specs proves, but not just the specs are good, the features of the laptop make the Chrnos worth the buy, as its user Windows based user interface is made even simpler and allows you to access allocations ever quick. The Samsung Chronos offers setting adjustment features that make this Ultrabook run super fast, while the ability to customize its eco friendly side makes the laptops battery last much longer.
