Peace & War

I know it's Wednesday, and if you want to just mellow out today, perhaps the new Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 reviewed over at HardwareHeaven is a great game to help you sit back, relax and look forward to the weekend.  Or, if you're uptight and just need to vent some frustration and anger, maybe Street Fighter X Tekken at MEGATechReviews will help be your therapist.  Either way, take a look at these diverse games to see which one fits your style.

On the single player side of the equation, you get your regular arcade mode where you battle through a series of teams, face the Pandora’d team described above, and then face the final boss. If you have one of the pre-formed pairings, you also get the “fight your rival” match that you had in SFIV. There are plenty of stages, including multi-level environments.

Apple has 4G Issues Down Under

Apple has been happy to sue the pants off of Samsung in Australia and yet when they market their new "4G LTE" iPad "Down Under" they forget to mention the fact that the wireless providers don't actually use the same spectrum that the iPad does so you aren't going to get 4G.  This has caused a fair bit of trouble and Apple has had to offer refunds to keep things peaceable.  More over here.

The new iPad works on 4G networks in the United States and Canada, but not the 4G networks that are available to Australians. Telstra, the largest network operator in Australia, uses LTE in the 1800-MHz band and Vividwireless uses WiMax in the 2300-MHz band. The iPad supports LTE in the 700-MHz and 2100-MHz bands, which are used by network operators in North America.

Ivy Bridge Overclocking

TweakTown has a couple of Ivy Bridge chips and pushes them pretty hard with some decent cooling.  They take the Core i7 3770K and the Core i5 3570K and manage to get some extra performance out of these chips - although not as much as with the 2600K Sandy Bridge.  Take a look for all the details.

Still if we've learned one thing, *cough* Bulldozer *cough*, it's that MHz isn't everything. While our 3770k comes clocked 400MHz lower than our older 2600k, can the upcoming Ivy Bridge platform offer better efficiency at the clock rate? Well, there's really only one way to find out.

Xbox - Not Just for Gaming

According to an article at CNET, Xbox is used for gaming about half of the time.  Typical usage is about 84 hours a month and over half of that is spent watching videos and listening to music.  That means that Microsoft gets it.  They know how to market a console.  Too bad they can't figure out how to market a phone or a tablet.

Microsoft has been dramatically increasing the amount of non-gaming content available to Xbox Live users. Last year, the company launched a major update to its dashboard, delivering programming from a host of providers, including ESPN, Hulu Plus, and others. Over the last several months, other services have brought their content to the Xbox 360.

Home Theater Loving

A couple years ago, projectors were a really big thing when it came to building an ultimate home theater room in your house.  With TV tech evolving so much though, there has been less excitement around projectors.  With that being said, the BenQ W1060 Projector over at TechReviews should still turn a few heads as it is a great option for native 1920x1080 output and is bright enough and has enough inputs for many people.

Perhaps one of the things you can plug into your projector or any TV is the new Apple TV reviewed over at MissingRemote.  I know, I know... Apple.  Right?  Then why not check out the Noontec MediaHome V8 over at HardwareLook.  Even though I'm not an Apple fan, the interface and functions look much better on the device from Cupertino.

If you want to wirelessly connect your laptop to your TV, there are a few solutions - including the Warpia Easy Dock Pro SWP220 over at TechwareLabs.  This little device can hook to to a spare VGA or HDMI port on your favorite TV or projector and seems to work pretty well.
