Video shows an inside look at Crucial's manufacturing process
It's not too often that system builders and related component makers pull the curtain back to reveal what goes on behind the scenes, but that's exactly what Micron did with its Crucial division. Crucial Ballistix memory is built entirely in-house and is designed and developed by parent company Micron. In a video recently posted to YouTube, Micron shows how its Crucial Balistix RAM is manufactured and tested.
Minus the rampant crime, Los Santos County is surprisingly pleasant
A new time lapse video by YouTube's The Despicable Channel highlights some of the many things to do and see in Los Santos County, the fictional setting for Grand Theft Auto V's many illegal antics. However, if you take away the obscenely high crime rate, frequent murders, and the fact that you could be mowed down by an out-of-control driver even when you're walking on the beach, there are worse places to live, and certainly lots of leisure to be found.
The red team says that with Mantle, its new flagship GPU will “ridicule” the GeForce Titan
With AMD unveiling its new series of GPUs, many gamers want to know how well it performs, namely against Nvidia’s flagship GeForce GTX Titan graphics card.
We had a chance to sit down with AMD Product Manager Devon Nekechuck to see how AMD’s new top dog R9 290X stacks up against the green team’s best single-GPU offering. According to Nekechuck, even though the R9 290X uses a 438 square mm die, which is significantly smaller than the Titan’s GK110 offering, which measures in at 550 square mm, it “will definitely compete with the 780 and Titan.” When we asked what this means in real-world terms, he stated, “with Battlefield 4 running with Mantel (AMD’s new graphics API), the card will be able to ‘ridicule’ the Titan in terms of performance.”
Deputy Editor Gordon Ung gives you a tour around this year's benchmark-busting beast
Every year we set out to build the most kick-ass PC, where money is no object and performance rules the roost. This year's $16,000+ Dream Machine is no different. It's by far the most powerful PC we've ever built--shoot, it even cracked into 3DMark 11's esteemed Hall of Fame leaderboard!
The whole might be greater than the sum of its parts, but the parts are pretty damned impressive, as you will see in these behind-the-scenes videos of all the Dream Machine's components, with your host Deputy Editor Gordon Mah Ung!

You knew it would only be a matter of time before someone wearing a set of Google Glass Explorers would record authorities making an arrest, it's just mildly surprising it happened so fast. After all, it's not like any ol' Joe can grab a set of Glasses -- they're mainly in the hands of developers, and for others hoping to score a pair, Google's no longer accepting applications at this time.
Um, yeah. John McAfee, British-American programmer and founder of McAfee (now owned by Intel), is an eccentric individual, to say the least. He also remains a person of interest in a murder investigation in Belize where he used to live. That's before he fled to Guatemala, played the crazy card and faked a heart attack to avoid being deported, and was ultimately shuttled back to the United States. If you thought his bizarre escapades were over, however, think again.
Austin Powers isn't the only one with mojo. Gaming peripheral maker Mad Catz also has Mojo, only theirs is of a different kind. Specifically, it's another mini Android game console, only Mad Catz promises its will be more powerful than the competition. In addition, Mad Catz is keeping its Mojo an open platform, something that could give it a leg up against the competition. Ace reporter and Online Managing Editor Jimmy Thang had a moment to speak with Mad Catz about its Mojo in detail.
Cries of "boycott!" emanate from the BlackBerry 10 camp.
Netflix has been known to rile up its subscribers on occasion. The biggest example of this is when Netflix tried to sever its DVD-by-mail division into a spinoff called "Qwikster" so that it could focus all its efforts on streaming. That didn't sit very well with consumers, but it wouldn't be the last time the company would make an unpopular decision. Just a few days ago, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings hinted that his company currently has no plans of developing a BlackBerry 10 app.
