Cooling Collection

If you live in a part of the world where it's warming up, you may want to starting thinking about the summer heat and the issues you may face if you picked up a new Ivy Bridge CPU.  Below are some cooling options that may help you out.



App Attack

If you enjoy your apps as much as we do, you'll be interested to see that you can now snag an app that will let you know when you're subjecting yourself to high levels of radiation.  Um, ok.  Maybe you'd rather rock out with your iPhone/Guitar?  Check it out.  gTar for the iPhone.

Not all apps are free and even paid apps may be cheaper than "free" ones.  CNET looks at in-App purchases and some "freemium" apps and tells how some companies get it right, while others do not.


Console Leaks

Details leak on next-gen console releases.  It appears that the next-Xbox won't be released until 4th quarter 2013 with the PS4 won't be landing until 2014- according to a leak in some legal documents detailing Activision and Bungie details.  

Potentially more interesting in the Activision/Bungie paperwork is the first reference of a PS4 title. A game called Comet #2 has been listed for a launch window of 2016, with “Comet #1″ planned for release in 2014 on the PS3.
