Written by Danrok   
Thursday, 06 September 2012 19:04

Nokia has been caught red-handed trying to pass off professional photos, shot with professional cameras, as being snaps and videos taken with their Lumia 920 smartphone.

This still photo purports to show OIS (image stabilization) in action, but it is very obviously shot with a D-SLR or similar camera, and not with a Lumia phone.

Phanteks PH-TC14PE review

From Bit-tech.net:

With custom water-cooling still out of reach for many in terms of cold hard cash - after all it's usually more about bling these days than super-cooling - you only have two options if you're an overclocking enthusiast looking to beat the heat in a modern high-end system. All-in-one liquid coolers, such as the Corsair H80 and Antec Kühler, have proven themselves to be as good, if not better, than the very best that air cooling has to offer. They are our first choice when it comes to dealing with toasty CPUs for the simple reason they're incredibly easy to install (so long as you have a 120mm fan slot near your CPU socket), are usually very quiet, and require little if any maintenance.

Written by Danrok   
Tuesday, 28 August 2012 18:13

From RegHardware:

Samsung's first Galaxy Beam, the GT-i8520, was a tremendously thick, heavy and expensive handset that very few bought. Having had a rethink, the company is now trying the whole smartphone-with-a-projector idea again with the GT-i8530. Essentially, this handset amounts to a Galaxy Advance S with a Digital Light Processing projector shoved in one end.
