NEW CONTENT (HTPC & Movies) – Bedtime Stories HD Movie Review
QUOTE: “Bedtime Stories is a fairly non threatening family film, with a not too subtle injection of moral subtext. It tells the story of Skeeter Bronson (Adam Sandler) whose family hotel was forcibly sold when he was a child, under the condition that when he was of age he could run the hotel. Working diligently at the hotel since then, providing numerous thankless services, he finds out he has been passed over for the managerial role in favour of the arrogant Kendall (Guy Pierce).
Despite Adam Sandler’s normal standard of ‘humour’ being childish at best, this marks new ground for him; this actually being aimed at children. I’m not normally a fan of Sandler, but this is now the second of his last two films that I haven’t outright hated (the other being last years You don’t mess with the Zohan. Could this mean that the actor is growing on me? God, I hope not. There’s also a nice extended cameo from English comic Russell Brand, whom is an actor to definitely watch in the future.”

Silverstone Raven RV01-BW Case Review

Author: Benjamin Sun Date: 07-17-2009

SilverStone says they are targeting this case for the Extreme Enthusiast and it has a plethora of features and innovation for just that crowd. The price tag online is $249.99 as of this writing, making it not for the faint of heart when it comes to those with a light wallet this case is not for you. If you want a case that looks like an F-117 Night Hawk in some ways and has an innovative cooling system that draws the air up and out of the system, the SilverStone Raven RV-01 may just fit the bill.

Quote
“Cinderella Man is the story of James J. Braddock, a boxer from New Jersey whose career in the sport began before the Great Depression. Braddock hit a rough patch, losing several bouts during the bad years for our country, but then he miraculously hit his stride again to reclaim some of his boxing greatness. The story is a true story, and it is one that really demonstrates the power of not giving up, and one that shows that second chances can and do happen…..”

Title: Zotac ION A-Series ITX Motherboard Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk

Briefing: ITX motherboards have been around for long time now. The problem is, they’ve been so far behind in technology and with such high price tags it makes them an option not even worth considering. However, with the release of the Intel Atom processor, a series of ITX motherboards using the processor have been released. Some people say these are the new generation of motherboards. Built with onboard processors, graphics and power supplies, you can easily build a low cost energy efficient computer system for around £200-250.

The motherboard we’ll be reviewing today is manufactured by Zotac, a quickly expanding company. It’s built using the Nvidia ION graphics platform which supports even DirectX10. The Intel Atom processor used in this system is the Dual Core based Atom N330. Costing less than £200, these specifications are certainly quite impressive. Let’s see if the Zotac ION A-Series’ performance is as good as its specifications might suggest….
