CoolerMaster V6 Muscle Cooler Giveaway Posted on: April 23, 2011 at 12:25 am Posted in: Blog,Give Away / Contest

Our good friends at VR-Zone have sent our way a top-of-the-line Cooler Master V6. Now I’m not really one for PC hardware, but when I pulled this monster out I was rather reminded of the Hyper Cube (is that what it was called?) in Transformers. I can’t, unfortunately, even test it out, because I’ve not been on a desktop system since 2008, but if I had tried it on any average desktop system I might have blown the power supply unit because this cooler draws a mother-load of power.

Well spread the love, as they say, so we’re giving this mega-cooler away to one lucky reader who will love it and put it to optimum use!

All we ask you to do is to visit VR-Zone‘s recently revamped website, have a look around, and comment below to tell us just one thing you like about their new layout. Or if you haven’t been to VR-Zone (which is pretty hard to do, if you have a need for this cooler), tell us anything you like about the new website.

And to the dear lucky winner who will get this, you are hereby reminded to use it wisely and responsibly. We will not be held responsible if you trip your entire neighbourhood’s electricity after installing this.

Contest will end 31st May. Good luck!

Blackberry Playbook First Look Posted on: at 12:42 pm Posted in: First Looks,VideoCasts

We got a chance to get some time with Blackberry’s upcoming Tablet, the Playbook. It’s got quite a brilliant hardware and UI, as you can see in the video.

It’s quite obvious that some of the features on that tablet was just for showing off their hardware capabilities (I mean, who want’s to play Need For Speed while watching a HD video at the same time? In fact, I’d prefer if they freeze my game when I get out). We’ve also found the device to be a little buggy, with applications quitting on its own due to crashes, though no 1.0 hardware isn’t buggy. The strangest thing to me, though, is the fact that without a Blackberry phone, the Playbook will not have any email, calendar or address book clients. Nevertheless, powerful hardware is powerful hardware.

That doesn’t stop the debates going on about this tablet’s future. I’m personally a little skeptical with the Playbook, especially with the fact that it’s reliant on a Blackberry phone to be fully featured, and that there have been reports that the quality of the 3rd party apps are not very high. That’s just my own opinion, though. We’ll have to wait and see what the future of Blackberry tablets hold.

But most importantly, what do YOU think?

DigressCast #15 – The Random Digression from Simply Geek #18 Posted on: April 4, 2011 at 9:00 am Posted in: DigressCast,Podcasts

It’s been so long since our last DigressCast. I hope you guys haven’t forgotten about me! In this episode, we took various snippets from our Simply Geek #18 discussion and took the digression to a whole new level. I’m currently the leading champion digresser of Tech65, and during having our awesome discussion of instant messengers, we got to hear our dear Farinelli singing. I think there’s whole segment about earth hour, our new (or not so new) busses in Singapore, and fansubbing…? Go, listen, we digress.

As it has happened often, our discussions went really long. So in this part you will hear the 2nd half the discussion. The 1st half is in Ep18.1 of Simply Geek, which you can download and listen to.
