The Benefits Of Google Apps @ ThinkComputers.org
If you own a business, then there is a chance that you will be looking for a way in which you can share your files so that people can work remotely. This type of working is becoming more and more popular in the modern world, with companies realizing that they dont really have any need to pay to run an office when their employees could do exactly the same work from the comfort of their own home. This would save money for the company, and would also mean that the employee could cut down on the amount of time that they spent travelling to and from the office, as well as removing travel expenses. Here, we will explore more about just some of the benefits of Google Apps.

SuperTooth HD VOICE Bluetooth Speakerphone Review @ TestFreaks
Hands-free driving is no longer optional but in most states it is mandatory. To help keep folks from breaking the laws SuperTooth have released their latest Bluetooth car speakerphone-the SuperTooth HD VOICE. This hands-free speakerphone simply attaches a vehicle’s sun visor via a magnetic clip allowing the user to partake in the hands-free calls while driving. Aesthetically this version looks like the previous model the SuperTooth HD, what differentiates the two is the change in firmware.

Logitech k310 Washable Keyboard @ NikKTech
How many times have you accidentally spilled water or soda on your precious keyboard? Well i can't speak on behalf of everyone out there but it has happened to me more than just once and unfortunately most keyboards out there if not all of them offer nothing to counter the effects of something like that. So if you are lucky enough to just spill water on your keyboard chances are that it will still keep working after you dry it but if you are unlucky enough to spill soda then ingredients like sugar and citric acid will definitely ruin it or at the very least put you through lots of trouble cleaning it. Well with the latest k310 washable keyboard Logitech just might have the ideal solution to such incidents and naturally we just had to take it for a spin.

Tutorial: How to share music, video and photos around your home with AirPlay @ Techradar
AirPlay started life as AirTunes and was originally limited to streaming audio from iTunes on a Mac or PC to Apple's AirPort Express - a Wi-Fi basestation that has audio connectors for hooking up to a stereo system. Later, it was added as an option in the iOS Remote app, allowing you to control the music you played over AirTunes from an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. In late 2010, AirTunes became AirPlay and added the ability to stream photos, video and metadata. More excitingly, however, Apple also announced that it had licensed AirPlay to third parties, so that they could produce AirPlay speaker systems. There are several ways that you can use AirPlay. You can stream music from iTunes on a Mac to an Apple TV, AirPort Express or third-party system.

How To Use Multiple PHP Versions (PHP-FPM FastCGI) With ISPConfig 3 (Ubuntu 13.04)
Since ISPConfig 3.0.5, it is possible to use multiple PHP versions on one server and select the optimal PHP version for a website. This feature works with PHP-FPM (starting with PHP 5.3) and FastCGI (all PHP 5.x versions). This tutorial shows how to build PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.4 as a PHP-FPM and a FastCGI version on an Ubuntu 13.04 server. These PHP versions can be used together with the default PHP (installed through apt) in ISPConfig.

Never Settle Reloaded - Level Up. AMD Bundle Performance with XFX @ HardwareHeaven.com
So with the new "Level Up" addition to the Never Settle Reloaded free game bundle we thought it was worth taking a look at just what performance a consumer can expect from the likes of Crysis 3 on their new 7870 at very high detail or Tomb Raider on the 7970 on Ultimate? Can the 7950 play Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon at 5760x1080? All these questions and more will be answered today as we take 3 cards from XFX through each of the games.

PowerColor Radeon HD 7870 Myst Edition Crossfire Review @ OCC
When you look at the performance generated by a pair of PowerColor's HD 7870 Myst Edition cards, it's hard not to be impressed when you look at the FRAPS-based testing. Especially when you look at the performance at 5760x1080 where the narrower memory bus on the GTX 660Ti limits the bandwidth hampering performance. The FCAT testing paints a different picture of the Crossfire performance of the HD 7870 Myst Edition. Let me say up front it's not a hardware problem but a software problem that AMD hopes to have resolved as early as in June with its own frame metering driver. The hardware is capable enough but the software side has let the Crossfire experience down on the HD 7870 Myst Edition. In terms of game play the worst feel in game was by far in the Far Cry 3 testing where the game was just chugging along with visual anomalies that are present even when run in single card mode. It's got to be purely driver related at this point with the FCAT data backing it up.

Kingston DataTraveler Generation 3 G3 32GB USB Drive Review @ DragonSteelMods
Up for review today I have the Kingston DataTraveler Generation 3 or G3 USB flash drive. The drive is 32gb capacity and it’s one of the latest from Kingston. The G3 is very small and lightweight making it portable and easy to take with you. It’s a flash drive made for storage, how exciting is it really? Kingston also has an optional suite of software you can download for the G3 making it a bit more usable and user friendly that features things like a web browser, photo viewer and more. The drive isn’t one of the fastest out there but it’s not one of the slowest either, it falls about the middle in terms of performance really. Read on….

Tech21 Impact Snap with Cover for iPad Mini Review @ TestFreaks
Last week we reviewed the Impact Snap with Cover iPhone 5 Case while today we will look at the Impact Snap with Cover for iPad Mini. This case is almost identical in design; it is just built to accommodate the larger iPad Mini.

Tech21 created the Impact Snap with Cover for iPad Mini with the same technology found in their other impact resistant cases. For this case they use the same military grade D3O impact material to protect the 7-inch Apple tablet.

HIS 7850 IceQ Turbo 2GB GDDR5 Video Card Review @ Madshrimps
Looking for a video card that can run most games at high details(up to Full HD Resolution), features massive overclocking from the factory and also sports a quiet and efficient cooling system? Then the 7850 IceQ Turbo 2GB GDDR5 might be quite the right choice, for a price that should not exceed 200 Euros.

Noctua NF-A14 and NF-A15 Fan Review @ Reliable PC Reviews
With all of the different fans to choose from it can get a little hectic and confusing when trying to determine which fan to go with. Noctua is among the top names when it comes to case fans and has received over 3000 awards for their products. One of the main notable features of Noctua fans is their ability to push large amounts of air while remaining at a low noise level. We recently got our hands on two variations of the Noctua NF-A14 along with the Noctua NF-A15 fan, and these are the fans which we will be reviewing. They can be found online at Newegg for $29.99 for the NF-A14 FLX , $28.99 for the NF-A14 ULN, and $29.49 for the NF-A15 PWM. All three of the fans we’re reviewing today feature a full 6 year warranty through Noctua.

EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked ACX @ HEXUS
As you know, we've been impressed by Nvidia's newly unveiled GeForce GTX 780. So much so that we've named it our favourite enthusiast card.

Sure, it's pricey at £550, yet it does deliver Titan-like performance on the *cough* relatively cheap. One of the problems we did identify, however, is that Nvidia's reference design is so well-engineered that add-in-board partners would have great difficulty in bettering it with non-standard models.

Well, credit to EVGA, who has proved us wrong with the GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked ACX. Priced at a dizzying £625 (that's some 13 per cent more than a standard GTX 780), this here custom-cooled and factory-overclocked derivative aims to rein in the Titan and, quite possibly, shoot to the top of the single-card performance charts.

HIS HD 7850 IceQ X Review @ Vortez
With the release of the latest crop of entry level cards and subsequent price drops of the 78XX series, we take a look back and compare the HD 7850, specifically the IceQ X version courtesy of HIS.

The HD7850 is perhaps the enthusiasts entry level model in the AMD lineup of current graphics cards. The 7700 series simply did not have the power to play at today's most popular resolutions. With today's sample priced at a very reasonable £155 and with free games thanks to AMD's current promotion, the HD7850 is considered to be somewhat of a bargain.
