Pepcom Highlights from CES 2014

We stopped by Pepcom this year and saw a few nifty things from Piston, drooled over the Lenovo 4K display and checked out a "fair" way to cheat at gaming. The Red Dot is not a cheat - it's just a fancy way to hipfire accurately - and it's awesome. Check it out!

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we are marching ever closer to our 3rd year of Android App Pick.

Take a look and find out how nukes play into this awesome game!

Alienware 18 Laptop is a Beast

If you are in the market for a gaming laptop and want something that won't hold you back, the Alienware 18 is one beast that will rock your gaming socks off. This unit is powered by a Core i7-4940X processor that boosts to a crazy 4.4GHz and is backed by either Dual GTX 880M or Dual R9 M290X graphics. Combine that with 32GB of DDR3 and you've got a better machine that most people - and yours is portable. I wouldn't call this a laptop though as it will burn up your chance of having children.

The Intel Core i7-4940MX, Intel's fastest current mobile processor, usually boasts a base/boost clock frequency of 3.1GHz/4.1GHz. This has been judged to be too slow by Alienware laptop systems designers who will ship Alienware 18 laptops with factory overclocked chips that reach speeds of up to 4.4GHz. Intel wrote via a 'Chip Shot' blog post that the overclocked chip will "enable some of the highest-performance laptop PCs on the market".

Dropbox: Not Hacked, but Exploited and Deleting Your Data

Dropbox didn't have much to be thankful for this past long weekend here in Canada. Not only were rumors floating around that they were hacked, the also had a bug sweep through their system that caused some of their users data to be permanently deleted. This was a very bad weekend. Thankfully, they weren't hacked. Unfortunately, a third-party exploit caused thousands of their users logins to be accessed and a good number of them were published online.

Dropbox has confirmed that a bug in some older versions of its desktop apps deleted the files of some people who turned on Selective Sync, which limits cloud syncing to certain folders. Typically, this would happen after a crash or forced reboot, making a bad problem worse -- at least a few users found that they'd lost years' worth of content through no fault of their own.
