And now we’re home editing video and photos and I think we’ve got some great stuff here to show you. There were definitely some real firsts for PC hardware and gaming at this year’s PAX Prime 2013 including the unveiling of the highly anticipated HAF Stacker by Cooler Master and the first public performance of INTEL’s SSD overclocking technology.

Just days before the official Apple announcement on their new iPhones, the Internet is rife with rumours and leaks about what Apple will reveal. An iPhone 5S as a replacement for the Apple iPhone 5, that was released on 19th of September last year, is all but a foregone conclusion. What Apple fans and watchers argue about is the claim that Apple would offer a lower-cost iPhone as well. This, you will note, is something that Apple doyen, Steve Jobs, was dead set against.
Instead of selling a cheaper, lower-end iPhone together with every new flagship iPhone model, Apple has chosen instead to offer their previous generation iPhone model with less storage capacity as the "lower-end model". This trickle-down system has the benefit of both extending the production life of each iPhone model (lowering costs and increasing profit for Apple), as well as boosting the resale value of used iPhones.
All that will change if Apple introduces a cheaper, low-end version of the latest iPhone model. Correction - it is now more or less confirmed that Apple will introduce what most people are calling the Apple iPhone 5C as the lower-end version of the iPhone 5S. The choice of the letter C was said to denote the wider range of colours that the iPhone 5C will be made available in, while others claim that the C denotes "Cheap" because of the lower cost, or "China" because it will also support the TD-SCDMA standard, which is used exclusively in China.

I must admit that i've never really enjoyed watching other people play games at least not for long periods of time (ok girls are something somewhat unique since where i live that's a very rare phenomenon) and so i think that's also the reason as to why i sometimes fail to see the point behind the existence of all those relatively new eSPORTS professional teams out there. That being said however i also have to admit that because there are so many eSPORTS teams out there (mostly the really old ones) attracting millions of fans around the globe for the past few years manufacturers have focused a lot into developing much better gaming peripherals such as mice, keyboard and headsets. Mionix is amongst those manufacturers and although it's been quite a while since Iā€™ve had my hands on one of their products for the past week we've been testing their latest Avior 8200 laser gaming mouse which brought back memories of the very impressive Naos 5000 laser gaming mouse (my very first encounter with them).
