    AMD Opens New Global Design Centre in Hyderabad

    TPU link: AMD Opens New Global Design Centre in Hyderabad | techPowerUp I was kind of peeved when I saw this press release.

    BBC News - Ubuntu Edge smartphone seeks $32m of crowdfunded cash Ubuntu Edge | Indiegogo Cost of the phone is outlandish, but it's supposed to essentially be a desktop in phone form factor. As well as a virtually scratch-proof screen. I'm surprised at how quickly they're getting funding was...

    Project 7642 - Anybody else getting insane coil whine?

    These things are driving me insane!!! They take forever to fold and make my GTX 470 SCREAM! I never knew coil whine could be this freaking loud, it's got to be at least 60db. Worst of all it's not a sine wave whine due to fluctuating GPU usage.

    CnC TA Open Beta

    http://alliances.commandandconquer.com/en/ Been playing this in closed beta for 2 weeks now, the game is flawed but fans of the CnC franchises should enjoy it. Game pace is fairly slow if you don't pay to play, but that's a good thing for me as it's a nice on the side gaming experience. It's...
