News - Big Screen byRemote 1.0a Launched

Great news from BigScreenGlobal--not only has Big Screen byRemote reached an official 1.0 version, but Niall is giving away the basic version for free. No news yet on the additional features which will be coming soon at additional cost. Big Screen byRemote allows you to schedule recordings for your Media Center PC's--think MSN Remote Record or Webguide, but Microsoft can't abandon this one since they have nothing to do with it. :-)
A *FREE* “Basic Edition” (which never expires) – and offers the majority of the functionality you’ve so far seen in the beta versions (with a few minor limitations on the Silverlight client – and with no restrictions on the Mobile XHTML client).

Review - Vidabox vCase3 - Slimline HTPC Case

Vidabox vCase3

When building a Home Theater PC, the case is quite possibly the most long lasting component and one that if chosen smartly can be used for build after build.

Let's take a look at the updated vCase3 from Vidabox and see if this case has the potential to last through those many builds.

Nvidia's Fermi core runs hot, and stock coolers are fine if you can get used to their loud and whiny operation. But if you really want performance and silence, you need to upgrade to an aftermarket cooler. The Zalman VF3000F (GTX470/465) VGA cooler is an excellent choice. Our testing showed that you can have both performance and nearly silent operation in the same package.

News - Full Seasons Ordered for Five CBS Hits

On the heels of seeing the news from NBC and ABC's renewal or cancellation of series, here's the latest from CBS and five shows which have lived to fight at least a full season. I have to admit to laughing at #R%* My Dad Says...and as much as HATE to admit it, Hawaii Five-O has been pretty entertaining as well.
The five CBS shows are the comedies “Mike and Molly” and “$#*! My Dad Says,” and the dramas “Hawaii Five-O,” “The Defenders” and “Blue Bloods.” None of the five can be considered a runaway hit yet, but each has posted at least respectable ratings and most of them have been the most-watched show on television at their hour each week.
