Zotac GeForce GTX 780

Hot on the heels of the GTX Titan comes the new GTX780 that uses the same type of GPU as we see in the GTX Titan. Zotac of course is one of the companies coming out with their own GTX780 card and we have taken it for a spin to see how it fares compared to the GTX 680 as well as the Zotac GTX Titan AMP! Edition  that we tested earlier this month. Related posts: ZOTAC GTX Titan AMP! Edition Do you think the regular NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan is...

ZOTAC GTX Titan AMP! Edition

Do you think the regular NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan is too slow? Need a bit more speed in that delicious expensive single-GPU package? Then Zotac has just the products for you. The ZOTAC GeForce GTX TITAN AMP! Edition is, according to Zotac at least, the fastest single GPU card and the fastest GTX Titan available right now. While we can’t vouch for that we can tell you that it is a GeForce GTX Titan that has been overclocked almost 10% right out of the box. What does that mean for performance? Well, read on to find out!

Plex going freemium – is it the end of the world?

I know I am not alone using Plex for media consumption. I would say it is by far my favorite Media Center Software, much because it handles all my media in the background (getting information about movies and TV-series episodes) and then allows me to access it on my iPad, Nexus 7, phone, desktop and so on. Add the support for “channels” where you find stuff like Hulu, Netflix (don’t ask me how well that works as I cannot use those here in Sweden) and it really is one piece of software I cannot be without.  No related posts.

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad

The iPad has come a long way since it was introduced a few years ago. While most people probably still use it primarily for gaming and entertainment there is no question that it also slowly is starting to be used for more professional uses, many of which really benefit from a keyboard. Logitech is a company that has many keyboards for the various iPad versions and today we are testing one of their latest: the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover which is compatible with the iPad 2 and 3.

Why is Firefox so crap on my Mac?

Yesterday Firefox was updated to version 11. I was hoping that this new version would actually take care of its absolutely crappy behaviour on my Mac Book pro but guess what …. it doesn't. I installed it last night, had Firefox open with 2 tabs (yes, there was 2 small flash-banners on those but nothing fancy) and then went to sleep letting the computer go to sleep.  Today I woke up, closed the lid and went to work. As I opened up the lid and checked Firefox I realized it was very sluggish. Guess what? It now had consumed almost 2 GB of RAM + was running my CPU at 99%. Maybe it is the Flash-plugin that is buggy and has memory leaks but I've had similar experience also with pages without Flash so I think it is Firefox still leaking memory. No related posts.

Moving to WordPress

After building the site by myself for over 16 years now (man, has bit been that long …) I'm finally making the move over to WordPress. Once mainly a blogg-tool, WordPress has definitely matured and I would say today is a competent CMS-tool also. I've been working with the Builder iThemes framework and I got to say it is really nice from a designer and developer point of view. It is easy to "build" the layout of the site and they got a bunch of great plugins (I love Backupbuddy and Loopbudy) that really helps improve the site.   No related posts. Read More »
