There are some debates that have raged since the dawn of time: evolution vs. creation, great taste vs. less filling, red vs. blue, and of course there is always the great mouse pad debate to consider.  Of course in this day and age everything gets a fancy new name, so the debate has actually changed from one of to 'mouse pad' or not to one of 'mousing surfaces'.If you've ever wondered why people might argue about mouse pads/mousing surfaces, or even us them in an era of optical mice, here's a snipped from Extreme Tech's article: "Would you pay $20, $40, or more for a mouse pad? Well, people do. Along with the advent of gaming mice comes the "professional mousing surface." Baked with all... Read more...

The widely unexpected success of Nintendo's modest little Wii game console has put them back on the map. And unlike the powerful and expensive PS3 and X-Box 360, the Wii has made money for its makers right out of the gate: Today, the company increased its earnings forecast for fiscal year 2007 by 20 percent. The new guidance points to net income of 120 billion yen (about $1 billion) and 900 billion yen ($7.6 billion) of revenues. Last year, Nintendo managed profits of 98 billion yen, or $830 million, on 509 billion Yen ($4.3 billion) in net sales. Margins won't look as good as last year's, as sales are growing faster than profits. But that's to be expected with the rollout of the Wii system.... Read more...
Disney has announced that it's going to develop its own games for the Nintendo's Wii console gaming platform. Why not just license their characters to other developers? There's money in them there pixels, and Disney wants to mine it all. Disney CEO Robert Iger said last September that the company can earn more by developing its own games rather than licensing characters and content to other developers. The company wants to make 80 percent of its games internally, and have 80 percent of these titles based on Disney movies, TV shows, or other content. The company has been buying out other game development studios, such as Avalanche... Read more...
OCIA.net has a look at a sweet looking cordless mouse in the form of the Logitech G7 Cordless Laser Mouse.  In their quest for the perfect mouse, OCIA.net sizes up the G7's potential to see how it handles everyday use, gaming and more.  The package comes with two Li-ion rechargeable batteries and connects to the PC using a tiny USB dongle.  I think I might be making a last minute holiday purchase for myself today :) "The USB dongle is similar in size and shape to a USB flash drive. The G7 communicates with the computer via this USB dongle, which uses a 2.4 GHz wireless frequency to send 500 reports per second to the computer.... Read more...
One for the weekend?  Sure, why not...    MonsterGecko - an over-grown lizard or manufacturer of innovative Gaming Controllers?  If you hazard a guess at the latter you'd be on the mark. Which by the way is exactly what their new PistolMouse is aimed to provide you, precision fragging with a classic "gat" kind of feel.   Stealth checks out MonsterGecko's PistolMouse FPS today.  It's like an offer you can't refuse...  ...

In all of our experience with personal computers, we've never quite came across a device like the one which is the focus of today's review, the PistolMouse FPS by MonsterGecko.  Suited primarily for first person shooters, the PistolMouse is an 800dpi optical mouse masquerading as a Glock pistol.  When we first laid eyes upon its flashy red and black box, visions of laying waste to opponents in on-line matches flashed in our minds.  Soon after, we put in a call to MonsterGecko to see if the PistolMouse was truly up to the task.        CLICK ANY IMAGE TO ENLARGE Optical Performance Specifications: Resolution: 800 dpi sensor with optimized lens Image...

Hey folks, it's time to empty the box again. We've got some different articles in tonight, such as the Apple iPod HP 20GB review, and a review for the Logitech Quickcam ORBIT Face-tracking Webcam. Goodnight all, enjoy your reading :) Danger Den RBX Waterblock Review @ OCModShop "The accelerator nozzles on the RBX are a very interesting concept. They allow the end user to adjust the water flow through the block to best suit the rest of the cooling system. The accelerator nozzle kit contains four precut nozzles and one blank for your own design. The #1 nozzle is the only one included with the block but the nozzle kit is fairly inexpensive considering the adjustability and performance tweaking... Read more...

Good morning friends :)  Awaking to a cold and frosty morning, it unfortunately looks as if winter is fast approaching.  I know us Canadians are supposed to enjoy the cold and snow.  But, all I can say is that I am glad I installed a remote car starter a few weeks back; nothing like pre-heated seats in the early AM ;)  Tsunami Ultra Quiet Custom Case @ PimpRig "The mnpctech Tsunami that Bill sent had some killer airbrush work on it that is called "Silent and Deadly". I get it completely; a Tsunami is a giant wave (as in the style of case), this is the Ultra Quiet so it's silent, and the Killer Whale is a deadly predator in the water. The artwork is drop-dead...

Good morning everyone, welcome back to HH :)  I was away last week at an Intel sponsored press event which was showing casing some very swank products.  With DMA's, HTPC's and Peripherals coming out the yin yang, I was right at "home."  Logitech Z-2200 Speaker Review @ The Tech Zone "Take Logitech's award winning top of the line Z-680 5.1 speakers, remove the center speaker, rears speakers, surround sound break-out box and you will have the Logitech Z-2200.

Spire Cooler SkiveStream 3 @ HardwareHounds.com "As processors get faster, they produce more heat. This means that it doesn't take long before the stock cooler that came with your cpu just doesn't do the job as well as you might like. One of the first upgrades to a stock system is the swapping of the stock cpu cooler to a cooler that will move more air, thus keeping the cpu cooler. Quite often, in the world of coolers, size matters. Coolers... Read more...

Good morning friends, how are you?   After pounding out some benchmarks last night I decided some downtime was in order, so I fired up my new game, Hitman: Contracts.  If you haven't played this series, think of a cross between Splinter Cell and Max Payne.  In the game you play an assassin that gets hired by various employers to "hit" specific targets.  At the end of each mission you are paid according to how stealthy you were and how much... eerr... clean up is required.  Though this game is definitely not for the kiddies, if you feel the urge to assassinate someone with a pool cue, this is the one for you. ;) Mouse Grips @ Viper Lair "Adding "grip"...

Why are you posting a portable mouse review?!?"...Well, I'll tell you, let me set the stage...A few weeks ago, while lounging on my couch, browsing with my laptop, I received an e-mail from the good folks at Atek Electronics asking if we were interested in taking a look at their newly released Super Mini Optical Mouse.
