While the benefits of working from home and owning your own business are well known to those who don't share in this world of ours, sometimes the problems associated with working at home and/or owning your own business are not. For example, are you eagerly awaiting a box of components to continue testing equipment with over the next four days so you can be ready for an article launch on the 27th? Do you find yourself NEVER without your CRACKberry answering emails and trying to set up meeting times for an upcoming convention even while sitting at dinner with friends? Maybe

This past Sunday was my birthday and I celebrated it by sitting in the freezing cold with my girlfiend and dad at the Cincinnati Bengals game and then coming home to nap and watch football the rest of the evening. Is that what living is about?
I have an odd perspective on birthdays and holidays in that I generally don't get too worked up about them. I am considered a "scrooge" through out most of my family and friends though I don't think I really that bad; just not 'peppy' like the others. I do enjoy many parts of the holidays but much of the commercializatio

Today, as I sit on the couch having just finished watching the Macy's Day Parade and now viewing re-runs of the World Series of Poker on ESPN, I am indeed very thankful for what I have. Over the past year PC Perspective has grown larger and better than where it started, and I owe that to the many people that are behind the site with me. Jon, Lee, Joe and Jeremy have helped me beyond what I can express, as have the other moderators and admins at the forums. And of course I have to thank our readers -- because without you we wouldn't be

Despite the fact that the Xb0x 360 was being released Tuesday morning, there was something slightly more exciting that I was looking forward to that day.
Play Chad Johnson of the Cincinnati Begals in Madden 2006.
I won a contest at the local Best Buy to play Chad Johnson during the Xbox 360 launch at the store.
Of course I couldn't let an oppurtunity like this pass me by without having a little fun...

Ever since Amdmb was launched way, way back in the year 2000 I have had the goal of growing the site into one of the top online tech media in the US. When I was prepping to graduate with my Bachelor's Degree in CS and start working on the website full time, PC Perspective was launched in order to provide the platform that I felt was needed for the site to succeed at the levels I envisioned.

Sorry it has been a while since I posted in here, I have just be swamped with work around here and the house for quite some time.
Since the last work-related post I made here the following articles have been published: Asus N7800GTX TOP Video Card Review, NVIDIA GeForce 6100 GPU Motherboard Chipset Preview, ATI CrossFire Review, NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800 GTX Pre

Yesterday was the 4th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in history. Chances are even if you didn't remember it on your own you were reminded by the shows on TV and the flags at half mast. I ran into a suprisingly high amount of people over this weekend that seemed completely oblivious to what importance this date had for us.
Though I don't want to get into a political rant here, but I can remember on the first anniversary of 9/11/01 how the country had changed in the course of one year. In the months after 9/11 everyone was involved

As you might have been able to tell from my recent post enews showing the upcoming CrossFire motherboards from ECS, I was recently in attendence at the ECS Editor's Day in San Jose last week. ECS has always been one of the largest manufacturers of motherboards in the world, but they have not been known to be an enthusiast class motherboard maker. Recently, this has begun to change, as you can see by reading our

Even though I wasn't able to make it out to this fall's Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, I was still able to get a hold of the same information being presented to those in attendance. Intel is introducing the world to a totally new micro-architecture that replace both the desktop NetBurst and mobile Banias architectures in the second half of 2006. This new architecture looks like it is taking the best from both of Intel's current architectures and melding them into one that will be more than competitive with AMD's K8
