Tech News August 17, 2012


There’s just a quick news update for you guys today.  Yesterday we had a big-ass news blast about the latest NVIDIA video card, and some of the tech websites are up in arms about how NVIDIA likes to control the review supply.  Tweak Town has a great article about their strong-arm media policy.  It’s quite a risky proposition being a hardware journalist.  On one hand you have to report a factual article and tell the truth, but you also have to please the companies.

Regardless, here is the tech news for today.
