Seagate 8TB Drives Now Affordable

Just when you thought that your 4TB drive was decent and were debating the 6TB upgrade, Seagate has to go and mess up your plans with their new 8TB drive that they claim is now "affordable". Be aware that this drive is geared toward archive storage and probably shouldn't be used in a 8-Bay NAS that is constantly being accessed. If you want more details, make sure you check out the link below.

Industry’s first high-capacity hard drive designed for cost-effectively storing active archive data and cloud content.
  • High-density 8TB hard drives for petabytes of affordable and accessible long-term online storage
  • Enables significant system-level TCO savings with best cost-per-TB
  • Maximum storage efficiency with lowest watts-per-TB
  • Reliable, low-power data retrieval based on Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) technology
  • RV-balanced for high density environments

30 Most Anticipated Games of 2015

There really hasn't been that many great games in 2014 in my opinion, but there are some big titles coming out in 2015. Of course, there will be the standard Call of Duty and Battlefield iterations, but those aren't what get me a bit excited this time around. Halo 5: Guardians looks very cool as does Star Wars Battlefront and the new Mirrors Edge title. There should be some good times coming your way in 2015.

Google Quits Some Security Patches

If you're following Google lately, you'll know that they have been bashing some competition (Microsoft) about a security patch that went an entire two days without a fix. WebView is the Android method for show web pages on Android devices and Google has (in their wisdom - or lack thereof) decided not to patch the exploits that currently exist "only" on Android 4.3 and prior devices. Google's main response in below.

If the affected version [of WebView] is before 4.4, we generally do not develop the patches ourselves but do notify partners of the issue[...] If patches are provided with the report or put into AOSP we are happy to provide them to partners as well.

Lian Li at CES 2015

We had the chance to check out Lian Li's new product lineup here at CES 2015 which includes a bunch of new cases that they are very excited about. One of these new cases from Lian Li is their PC-07S case which looks more like a piece of art than a computer case. The PC-07S can also be wall mounted if you want or can sit vertically. The attention to detail on this case is amazing and will allow you to build a PC that is very unique so I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. The PC-07S is large enough for an eATX motherboard with additional models (PC-06S, PC-05S, and PC-05) which are smaller if you would prefer to go with a micro or mini ATX board instead. The PC-07S case will be available in February of 2015.
