Hardware News and Review RoundUP november 28 2012


The Droid Razr Maxx HD’s 4.7-inch HD touchscreen is also protected by an extra layer of glass to prevent scratches. The display’s resolution is improved over the original Droid Razr Maxx, coming in at 1,280 by 720 pixels compared to 960 by 540 pixels. Text and images looked bright and clear, and colors were vibrant, if a bit oversaturated.

Samsung previously supplied batteries for Apple but has stopped, reports TechCrunch.

In the past couple of months, we’ve seen reports that Samsung had increased processor prices for Apple (which the company denied) and also claims that Apple was terminating the display supply relationship with the Korean company (also later denied).

China Times reports Google intends to launch Chrome OS netbooks equipped with touchscreens. Compal, a Taiwan-based ODM, is tasked with the manufacturing. Per this report, Google placed the order itself rather than relying on a 3rd party like Acer or Asus as with the Nexus products. Internal components will begin shipping to Compal this month, a sign that China Times takes to mean the product itself will ship yet in 2012.

So as of today we’re adding official Windows 8 support for most of the games in GOG.com catalog. There are currently 431 titles fixed, tested, and reported to be working properly under Microsoft’s new OS. Note that most of these have not had the master builds updated, so you shouldn’t need to redownload the installer or anything.

A few other processors, such as previous generation Sandy Bridge based Core i5 2600S, 2500, 2500S, 2500T, 2400S as well as Core i5 2310, 2320 and 2405P, are getting the PDN notice with the EOL planned for Q2 2013.

The list includes the catchy titled Z87H3-AX Extreme and the Z87H3-AX Golden, which contain several components made of gold. It looks like they are nased on Intel’s Z87 chipset, the successor to the Z77.

To be fair, it’s not like Steve Jobs is taking a sabbatical, was fired, or left the post; the man died! No amount of rumoured 4 year plans or product roadmaps will bring his wealth of knowledge back to the fold. Musk went on to add:
