    Nexus 4 or Nexus 7 3G?

    Damn the pricing is awesome! I had been waiting for the N7 3G for a long long time, but the N4 is now vying for my attention. I know one is a phone and the other is a tab, but what are the other arguments? N4 is surely faster. Which device will be more future proof? Android doesn't have a lot of...

    PC Peripherals PC shuts down automatically

    I am running an Athlon II 240 on an Asus M3A78-EM. I think cpu temp sensor on my mobo has gone kaput - it always shows cpu temp above 98C. Lately, my PC has started shutting down on its own after an hour or two of usage (h/w shutdown, not windows). And it does not start again immediately. I have...

    How is the Ainol Aurora II tablet?

    I was browsing thru the various chinese tablets, and thought the Aurora II to be a good deal. It has an Amlogic cortex A9 dual core, dual mali 400, and a LG IPS screen for under 12k. But I can't find any detailed reviews for this tab. Firstly, how is the build quality? Is it good enough for our...

    Which is the best custom ROM for Galaxy S i9000?

    I'd tried CM7, got bored - went back to stock. Now the news of CM9 got me excited, so decided to give CM7 a try again. But the camera still sucks, and I miss the samsung codecs. So I'll stick to a samsung based rom for now. But the question is which? I've tried a few custom roms earlier...

    The stock earphones for my SGS are gonna kick the bucket soon. The cable will soon break just above the 3.5mm connector :( I need a decent replacement, but nothing too expensive. I mainly watch movies on my phone, so the sound should be loud and clear, with good amount of isolation. Music...

    Car & Bike Suggest a mid-range bike

    My platina has dragged on for almost 5 years now, and I'm thinking of retiring it before it falls apart :P Now, I would have loved to get a Dazzler - except that I'll only use the bike to commute to and from the railway station. It's around 7km one way. Spending 70k+ for this seems like a real...

    How to check temps of remote PC?

    Is there any application to check temps of remote PCs over the network? I need something to monitor the render servers in office. I tried VCTemp from the coretemp addons ( Core Temp - Add Ons ) - but it is too plain. Am looking for something a bit more polished.

    Help me spend my money...

    Baah, I'm bored, so I want to get a new toy :P I have thought of the following options - 1) Upgrade my cpu to a 1075T - but I don't game or do 3D or any heavy work at home. So not much use. 2) Get a 55-250 IS lens - but 95% of my snaps will be of my daughter, so don't need a tele right now...
