    PC Peripherals Suggestion for new PSU

    Dude, it is always wise to spend more money on PSU+cabinet more than on CPU. Antec 450W is available in less than 3K.

    Why not Lenovo A6000 or Yu Yureka. at 5.5" yureka is much lighter and smaller, though I have not used it personally. I have used Android One from Karbonn and Spice and both are damn good. They never hang, you get instant GPS lock of your position and great call quality. They cost you around...

    C/C++ IDE with Predictive Text (like Microsoft Visual Studio "Intellisense")?

    You don't remember the variables and function signatures because of two reasons: You did not name them properly (read "Practice of Programming" by Kernighan and Pike) You did not follow any coding standard for writing function signatures (read "Practice of Programming" by Kernighan and Pike)...

    C/C++ IDE with Predictive Text (like Microsoft Visual Studio "Intellisense")?

    Well, you can use Code::Blocks or Eclipse but the real question you need to ask yourself is why you want to have predictive text when you are writing C/C++ code ? Why not without predictive text ?

    Must Read Articles for us Computer Science / IT Grads

    My Dear Bhoot, These reads are in no way outdated, and they will never be outdated. I know all those cries on words like BigData and Cloud Computing and what not but did you ever try to search in detail what is underneath all those marketing-MBA-hyped- words ? Search and you will know why...

    Linux Suggest a Distro for a linux newbie

    Close your eyes and install Debian. I have used more than 20 distros in last 10 years and Debian is th eonly "Rock Solid" distro. Its packaging system (apt-get, aptitude), stability and ease of usage can't be matched. After using Debian for an year, start with Arch Linux
