Not to be confused with the game popular in college dorms, Halo headphones are simply a pair of discs with drivers enclosed and a cord.  They stay on your ears through the use of a headband, either the one enclosed in the packaging or if you have a stash left over from the 80's you could use that ...

More features or more performance, which is better for Just Cause 2?

If you are a fan of a little 3rd person mayhem then Just Cause 2 has probably been on your radar for a bit.  A game that shows off the maturity of the DX10 engine with native support for most of nVIDIA and AMD's anti-aliasing
features which comes in handy when you consider that most terrain is deformable.  That means that the question in your mind is not whether to pick up the game or not, but which card is your better choice to get the most out of the games visua

It is confirmed that the Win7 ROM that will be present in for any phones that will be based off of Microsoft's new mobile platform can be jailbroken.  In keeping with Microsoft's general image, the unlock gives you access to Mobile Office 2010.   That is perhaps not as fun as what you can get a hold of on a jailbroken iPhone but it certainly fits the target audience.  There are currently some similarities between the iPhone and a Win7 phone, for instance no multitasking on Win7 based phones similar to all but the new unreleased 4th iteration of Apple's mobile OS.

There is no question that the G.Skill PIS Series DDR3-2400 4GB
kit
is among the fastest of DIMMs on the market and as such has a rather high price.  At $56/GB, you really need to have a strong desire to have the best speed your system can manage, and this kit will help you do that.  Out of the box it runs @ 9-11-9-28 2T and with a little coaxing Think Computers managed to drop the frequency a tad and get much tighter timings but the Intel Core i7 870
on the test rig simply could not go fast enough to determine

If it wasn't for spyware, malware, trojans, protean viruses and the rest of the nasties running around on the web today, you would probably actually be able to get your work done on time though there would probably be a lot of out of work techies and PC repair shops.  Unfortunately that is not the case and visiting a web page that was secure yesterday doesn't mean you won't be hit with a drive by vulnerability today.  If you do end up getting infected and spend time cleaning off the machine you should remember one mantra, "
