Kindle Unlimited is Official

We talked about it last week, and this past weekend it was official - Kindle Unlimited is official. For only $9.99 a month, you can read as much as you want from over 600,000 books in the Kindle library as well as listen to the Audible version of the book - of which there are over 2,000 Whispersync for voice-enabled books (and growing). If you enjoy reading - a lot, make sure you check it out.

With Kindle Unlimited, you won’t have to think twice before you try a new author or genre—you can just start reading and listening,” said Russ Grandinetti, Senior Vice President, Kindle. “In addition to offering over 600,000 eBooks, Kindle Unlimited is also by far the most cost-effective way to enjoy audiobooks and eBooks together.

Noctua NH-U12S and NH-U14S Review

We have just posted up our review of the Noctua NH-U12S and NH-U14S CPU Coolers. These are a couple of high-performance monoliths from Noctua that will rival quite a few entry-level liquid cooling kits. The NH-U14S is a beast as it features a massive 15cm fan and you will want to check your case to see if it will fit. For all the details - and why you should consider one of these, read our review for all the details.

The CPU cooling market has really changed since we started BCCHardware. CPU's no longer require big aftermarket coolers and most people are satisfied with stock cooling, but that hasn't changed the way Noctua looks at cooling and they haven't cut corners as a result. They just keep consistently pumping out coolers that are quiet, high quality, and can offer up performance that can compete with anyone.

Amazon Heads Up Games

Amazon's new Fire phone has lead to some new things for the web retailer: one such change is the new Amazon exclusive games that use their dynamic perspective to look around corners and solve puzzles. This may not be a deal breaker for buying this phone over the other but it is interesting.

  • Use the Amazon Fire’s ground-breaking Dynamic Perspective to solve crafty physics puzzles and triumph in frenetic melee battles
  • Use Dynamic Perspective to peek around corners, and to plan your attacks to release devastating chained combos.

Samsung @ CES 2013

One of the highlights of every CES is a stop by the Samsung booth and this year didn’t disappoint. Samsung has so many products on display which makes it feel like walking through a candy story wishing you could have one of each. The big product in the TV market this year at CES is 4k displays (4096x2160 resolution) and Samsung had a bunch of those on display. Right now content is pretty tough to find in resolutions that high, but the demo clips that they were showing attracted quite a crowd.

Also on display was one of Samsung's curved OLED TV's. The curve in the screen wasn't drastic but it was enough to give the picture a bit of a different look and thanks to the OLED technology the picture was great.
