Savor the News August 9, 2012

I feel like a train conductor, but without the silly hat. The reason why is because everything is running ahead of schedule. Take this news, for example… I’ve prepared a tasty midnight morsel of crunchy-fried news, but you have to wait. I stuck it in the back of the refrigerator… so you can eat it later!

Now that the news is chilling on ice for the evening, it will be ready for your breakfast in the morning. Come 5:00am when you wake up and have your coffee you’ll be ready to take in this news goodness.

Microwave it. Unwrap it. Savor the aroma… that’s good Tech News.

Akitio NT2U3 USB 3.0 Dual Bay RAID Enclosure Review @ NikkTech
If you’re a professional who uses computer systems for work or if you’re just an enthusiast then chances are that you will have at least a couple of hard disk drives laying around which once used to inhabit the inside of your PC case but as expected are long replaced with higher capacity models. This is something I’ve seen a lot lately and it seems that most people actually keep these drives stored someplace rather than using them for backup purposes.

Are you still here? Well then you’ll be interested to know that there’s a patch for the Playstation 3 version of Silent Hill HD. Xbox 360 users are out of luck. Here’s more info…

Today, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced that while a PlayStation®3 online title update for Silent Hill HD Collection has been deployed for download via PlayStation®Network, plans for an XBOX®360 title update have been cancelled due to technical issues and resources.

Understanding the issues some users are experiencing, KONAMI issued a title update for Silent Hill HD Collection (PS3), which fixed frame rate issues as well as audio-synching and other reported issues. KONAMI apologizes to any players who are continuing to experience these issues on the XBOX 360 sku.
