Real Racing 3 How Not to do Micropayment Games

When Electronic Arts let it be known in an interview that they were looking into making micropayments a part of all of their games, I defenced the move thinking that really it’s not such a bad thing. I made a point though that as long as it does not hinder the gameplay then it’s something we can just ignore, unless we choose to pay a little to get an edge in our games. Reading reviews from around the gaming sites though it appears Electronic Arts had to show the ugly side of micropayments, in Real Racing 3.

Real Racing 3 is a free game for both iOS devices and Android, it’s available for free with the idea that you can purchase car packs to provide yourself with the better cars to race. The micropayment model makes this possible, and you’ll find that it’s also in use to do such things as make repairs to your cars. You don’t have to pay of course, you can just leave the game to spend an amount of time fixing the car, or changing the oil, or a tire, or whatever it’s decided you need. Real Racing 3 is a good game, the problem it has though is that it’s almost crippled the game if you are unwilling to pay to play, so in truth it’s not free at all.

When Free is not Actually Free
There is a lot of good in Real Racing 3, the racers you race against have an authenticity of feeling real, because they are created using “ghost” date from other players from around the world. Most gamers will know what I mean by this, but if you don’t it means that it records the best lap from a player and uses that lap information to create the perfect lap for that person. You don’t need to know who did that lap, just that it was a good one and made it into the system to be used as an opponent against you. This is a good idea in theory, but there are times when the AI does seem to be lacking though.

The real problem with the game is the microtransactions, there are quite a lot of them. Based on the idea of having credits within the game and also “gold” you’ll find that actually making enough money to do anything in the game is incredibly slow and hard work, unless of course you pay some real world money to quicken things up. It’s obvious that EA are wanting to make as much money out of this as possible, and in truth why not? They have to be able to make a profit with the games that they are providing us. The fact is though at around £14/$21 per car pack and payment for repairs you’ll be looking at paying £20/$30 for the game before you realise this is not really a free game at all. It’s something of a false economy for the gamer if anything.

So if we are to look at the prospect of microtransactions in games what does Real Racing 3 teach us? Well I’d argue it teaches us how not to use this payment model. It’s unfair in a way to offer a game like this and literally force a free game to expect payments from the gamers. If it’s going to cost you to play, then state that and don’t just call it a “free-to-play” game. I’d argue that Real Racing 3 probably would stand more of a chance if there was an upfront payment, car packs stayed downloadable but the microtransactions were scrapped, then we’d not feel so ripped off. There are some games that can feature microtransations and some that can’t, it’s a shame that Real Racing 3 is on that can’t.

Reasons to Use a Thumb Drive

There are many reasons that you may consider using a thumb drive. These reasons include having your data accessible when you need it to be, securing data, using different computers, and much more.

A thumb drive uses a USB connection and allows you to plug it into a port to access data that you save on it. Most computers today instantly recognize a thumb drive as an additional drive on the computer it is plugged into. When you want to add data all you have to do is drag and drop the files to the additional drive and they are immediately stored on the drive. Thumb drives are very common and they are small enough to add to your keychain so you never lose them and you can take them with you everywhere you need to go.

A thumb drive is the best option for saving money when you need to transfer or save data. Some people go through stacks of CDs. For example, a person owns a website selling Christmas trees. Every time they want to update the photos of artificial Christmas trees they burn the new ones to a CD-Rom. The problem is that this can become extremely expensive. When you purchase a thumb drive then you can save the photos of lighted palm trees to the drive and move them accordingly. When you don’t need the photos anymore then they can be deleted easily. A thumb drive can be used over and over and you will never need to use CDs for transferring data again. Plus, a thumb drive stores much more data than a CD has the capability of storing.

Securing data is very important for many people who have to take their information with them on the go. The great thing about a thumb drive is that it can be locked down. This means that if you lose your thumb drive someone cannot access the information stored on it unless they have a password. You cannot lock down other methods like CDs and CDs are really easy to lose.

A thumb drive allows you to have your information with you when you need it. They are small and portable so you can carry them with you on the go. You don’t have to worry about a thumb drive getting destroyed or scratched like a CD also. They are durable. Everywhere you go you can have your data and a thumb drive can be plugged into any computer that you would like to use to access your information. This means that if you must print something and your computer at home is broken then you can save the files to the thumb drive and print them somewhere else easily.

There are many reasons that you might consider using a thumb drive for storing your files. These reasons include having the data accessible easily, durability and saving money, and much more. A thumb drive can store a ton of data and be used over and over again so you won’t have to save money on CDs anymore.

Refreshing or Resetting Your Version of Windows 8

As stated before Windows 8 is an operating system that looks to turn your computer into a machine more like a tablet at times. Even if it’s a laptop or a desktop PC it pushes the touch screen environment on the users and even gives them the ability to use apps that are based on the tablet model. This has positive elements (such as the Smartglass integration with the Xbox) and negatives, like the initial strange learning curve when it comes to using the user interface.

Windows 8 also looks to simplify the user experience for you, which is something tablet computers rely on to some extent. It takes away that “techy” feel of the computer itself where the user has to actually go looking for those geeky elements that were once quite easy to find. One of these simplifications is what happens if your copy of Windows 8 begins to have issues.

Refreshing or Resetting your Copy of Windows 8
When your copy of Windows 8 is having issues and you are looking at moving back to a workable version, you may find that you want to start again with your Operating System. This is something that you can easily do on your tablet, and often find yourself having to do. With Windows 8 even on a desktop/laptop it’s possible to simply refresh your PC or reset it.

Refreshing is the first option that you really want to pick, this will simply put all your apps and Windows 8 back to the default settings like the first time Windows was installed (or you turned on your new machine). Note that your desktop applications will be removed with this option but your files will be kept safe. If you choose to do a full reset this will remove everything from your install, including files and give you a brand new start. This is reminiscent of the install options you are given when installing Windows 8. For more advanced users these options may not fit what you want to do, especially if you don’t want to have to re-install your desktop applications, it’s important to take backups of everything you deem to be important of course.

These recovery options do show one thing about the Windows 8 environment, there is a focus on Windows Store apps more than there is on actual desktop installed applications. This in a way is annoying for people who like the desktop more, and use this more than the “tiled” environment that is more for the tablet computers. This is probably why there is a reluctance to use Windows 8 at the moment rather than previous versions of the operating system. It’s not that Windows 8 is an inferior choice of operating system, it just makes some weird choices when it comes to which type of user to focus on.

Whether you want to reset or refresh your copy of Windows 8 this can be done through the tiled user interface or when troubleshooting your computer start-up (you’ll have this option if Windows 8 is having issues). Through the tiled user interface simply go to PC Settings and General Settings and you’ll see the option to “refresh” or “remove everything”. You’ll be then guided through the relevant option and then you’ll have your hopefully fresh faced user interface that now works better without the problems you were having that caused you to have to refresh/reset in the first place.

Replica Furniture The Perfect Solution for Your Problem

Before exploring the details of Replica Furniture, it would be better to describe the term ‘furniture’ at large. It would provide us a better understanding of this type of furniture. Here the term replica is used for the imitations of different kinds of furniture.

The Natural furniture includes furniture items that are manufactured from the natural materials including wood, bamboo and rattan etc. They are called natural as opposed to the plastic and other materials which are manufactured from the chemical synthesis. The furniture manufactured from the chemical materials is termed as synthetic furniture.

The natural and synthetic furniture actually competes on an equal footing on the furniture market. The natural furniture is preferred by a large number of users. But the affordability issue can make the users to opt for the synthetic furniture as the natural furniture is much more expensive than the synthetic furniture.

Before purchasing any discount furniture, it is highly recommended to consider the replica furniture. The materials used for the manufacturing of discount furniture items are actually synthetic because plastic is the main ingredient but with the use of advance technology like molding and painting these synthetic materials are given the look of natural furniture. With these advanced technologies, the plastic furniture is seemed to look like genuine rattan and genuine bamboo etc. These furniture pieces are manufactured in such a perfect manner that it is called as replica natural furniture.

So replica furniture is actually the disguised version of synthetic furniture and is also better than discount furniture. If the replication is properly done, the furniture looks like the genuine natural furniture. On aesthetic level, it resembles the natural furniture to such an extent that if a person uses it without an intimate contact will think that it is genuine natural furniture. While on a functional level, the owner has the realization that he has got the synthetic furniture. The replica furniture will definitely have all the pros and cons which are associated with the typical synthetic furniture. Only the looks of the furniture are natural otherwise everything else about this furniture is synthetic.

You should not always opt for the replica furniture just because it is reasonably priced like discount furniture because there are many other things as well that are important to be kept in mind before purchasing any furniture. Many people can easily afford genuine furniture but they still opt for the replica furniture because of the pros associated with this kind of furniture. If a person wants to purchase a bamboo chair and he can actually afford to have the natural bamboo chair which is beautiful to look at but has a relatively weaker structure. In such case, the person can opt for this type of furniture which is not only aesthetically appealing but is also more durable as compared to the genuine bamboo chair. The replica bamboo chairs will definitely depict your aesthetic sense and will also serve you for a longer duration of time.

The wide variety of replica furniture is available in all price ranges so that you may not face any problem in this regard.

Review – iFixYourI’s white iPhone 4 conversion service

Apple’s white iPhone 4 has been a subject of discussion (that is, if you’re into all of this stuff) for quite some time. Over the past couple of days, it seems as if Apple is either going to delay the white iPhone 4 until next Spring, or shutdown the project. While the later of the two seems more likely, you can still get your hands on a white iPhone 4. There are a number of websites that over conversion services, where you send your black iPhone 4 to them and they’ll swap out the parts. Parts can be found cheap enough to be yourself. In this post, we’ll be taking a look at iFixYourI’s white iPhone 4 conversion service. If you happened to have seen my YouTube video about it, please disregard it.

First, lets talk about shipping and packaging. I shipped my phone to them on a Saturday via USPS. It got to the iFixYourI guys on a Monday (they’re based in Florida). They did the swap the same day, and overnighted it to me via FedEx. I received the phone the next day (Tuesday). It came in a rather simple FedEx box that had some packaging materials pre-made for a mobile device like this. There was some clear covers on the front and back of the phone (sort of like the covers that you see on your iPhone 4 when you first take it out of the box). My orignal black parts weren’t in the box (hence, the “swap”). I emailed iFixYouI, and they gladly sent them back to me without any shipping charges.

Please note that these aren’t genuine OEM parts. We’re told that, since the actual device isn’t released, OEM parts aren’t available, but don’t let that hinder your decision of whether or not you’d like to go through their service.

Next up, the looks! The white iPhone 4 is a very beautiful looking device. I was one of those who were going to wait for the white iPhone 4 as long as it took, but that would never have came. It’s a very stunning looking device when compared to its black version. The dotted sensor cover at the top of the iPhone is just like in Apple’s images. The home button seems to be a slightly different shade of white, also like on Apple’s images. One thing to note: glue. There was a good bit of dried up glue near the bottom of the front glass panel. iFixYourI claims that, sometimes, this is the way that they come out of the factory. The back of the iPhone is really smooth, just like what the black parts felt like. But, one thing: no flash diffuser. Mentioned above, these aren’t OEM parts, so that’s probably why there isn’t a flash diffuser. Basically, the flash diffuser lets the flash spread out more. This didn’t really effect pictures taken with the flash, though.

Now, there are a few other things that I have to mention. I went ahead and took the white back panel off (by taking off the 2 screws at the bottom of the phone, a very simple procedure) just to see what things still looked like inside. The little pull-tab for the battery was a bit abused. Before it was sent to them, it was nice and straight and without any crinkles. Also, a screw magically fell out of the phone. I could not figure out where in the world it came from, but it just all of a sudden fell out from the phone. One more: there’s a small grey blob on my camera (see the last pic from the photo gallery below). This most definitely wasn’t here before I shipped my phone out. I even took the camera completely out of the phone to try and figure out why this was happening, but it would still happen. It also happens when the back plate is completely off of the phone. It’s only visible when taking a picture of something very light. Keep in mind that the phone is still fully functional.

Overall, this service is quite good. If you happen to have the money to put down to have your black iPhone 4 converted to a white one, this would be a great service to go to. It’s competitively priced and their customer services is great and caring. There are a few problems afterwards, though, and I’m not sure if this happens to others’ iPhones, but the changed look of my iPhone 4 makes it all worthwhile.

Review: CyberPower Trinity Xtreme Pc looks insane but is surprisingly upgradeable

You know how your sandal-wearing, tablet-toting partner insists on organically grown, free of charge-variety, gluten-totally free water? Gamers are the exact same way about their rigs and their need for business-normal components. Proprietary? May well as well be a genetically modified flesh-eating tomato.

Sure, proprietary gets you styles such as Apple’s Mac Pro, but you’re left high and dry when it is time to upgrade.

That will not come about with CyberPower’s new Trinity Xtreme, which provides you a truly exotic look with out the penalties.

Gordon Mah Ung

CyberPower’s Trinity Xtreme may look like alien technology, but it’s a Pc.

What’s inside
CyberPower sells many diverse versions of the Trinity. Its Trinity one hundred runs on AMD APUs and rings in about the $ 1,000 mark. The Trinity 200 is the mid-variety component with Intel’s Haswell quad-core inside, even though the unit you see here is dubbed the Trinity Xtreme. Like the Falcon Northwest Tiki it uses Asrock’s X99 E-ITX/AC motherboard, which lets CyberPower shoehorn a six-core Core i7-5820K CPU inside. There are eight-core possibilities, but the Core i7-5820K lets CyberPower place a lot more money toward the GPU. In our case, it is a GeForce GTX Titan X. You could argue that a GeForce GTX 980 Ti makes far more fiscal sense now, but the Trinity Xtreme arrived appropriate ahead of the 980 Ti was released.

For storage there’s a 2TB tough drive and a 250 GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD. It’s all powered by an 850-watt Corsair CS-series PSU.

Gordon Mah Ung

The magic of the Trinity Xtreme is its use of off-the-shelf components.

Keep in mind, these are all off-the-shelf parts. What you are almost certainly wondering is how it all fits in there.

Each of the pods, or “blades,” as CyberPower calls them, retailer various components. The proper pod holds the Mini ITX motherboard, CPU and radiator. The left unit holds the PSU and has adequate space for two three.five-inch hard drives. The top pod holds a normal GPU. In our case, again, it is a normal GeForce Titan X inside and it undoubtedly appears like there’s room for a dual-GPU card such as a Titan Z or an older GeForce GTX 690 card. Sorry Radeon R9 295X2, there’s no place to put your radiator, but perhaps give me a call when the fabled dual next-gen card shows up in this timeline.

For expansion, there’s room in the Trinity Xtreme for one more two two.five-inch drives and one more three.5-inch drive. Believe it or not, there’s really room for a slimline optical drive between the two 3.five-inch drives. Our unit though didn’t come with it. Possibly CyberPower figured you couldn’t play your fantasy of becoming a James Bond supervillain even though burning a CD.

Gordon Mah Ung

A Titan X powers the gaming capability of the CyberPower Trinity Xtreme. It appears like you could match a dual-GPU card in there, also.

How it all works
You’re probably questioning how precisely it works. The case employed here—DeepCool’s TriSteller—delivers a clever sleight of hand. All 3 hefty pods connect even though a steel center shaft that has cutouts to run the PSU and SATA cables, as nicely as the folded PCIe cable for the GPU.

DeepCool’s TriSteller is accessible to DIYers who want to construct their personal but proper now, I’m not seeing it in the US. The only seller I could uncover was Amazon in the United Kingdom and only if you are prepared to pony up $ 750 for this “hand created Computer case” that is also a limited edition item, according to DeepCool.

That is a steep cost for the TriSteller case. That with Titan X aids push the price tag of the Trinity Xtreme to $ two,700. That is above CyberPower’s usually super-reasonably priced costs and has me questioning how they can even afford to sell the PCs.

Performance
As cool as the Trinity Xtreme appears, it wouldn’t matter if it couldn’t carry out. The great news is a single Titan X and six-core Haswell-E chip performs exactly where you’d anticipate. I compared the Trinity Xtreme with the MicroExpress MicroFlex B20, our quad-core Core i7-4770K and GeForce GTX980 reference system and the Falcon Northwest Mach V with its three-Titan X cards. The Mach V is there mostly for reference so you can see what two much more TItan X cards (and three occasions the cost) buys you.

PCWorld

The single GeForce Titan X in the Trinity Xtreme provides near-4K gaming capability.

If you’re concerned over the shorter red bar, do not be. For a practical game, such as Tomb Raider set to Ultimate quality and playing on a 30-inch, 2560×1600 resolution monitor, the Trinity Xtreme will have you moving along at virtually 90 fps. You need to be fine at 4K resolution as well, but I’d advocate coupling a single Titan X with a G-Sync monitor to aid compensate for the occasional frame price dips.

PCWorld

The Trinity Xtreme must offer you nicely above 60 fps in any gaming task on a 2560×1600 resolution monitor, or roughly half the pixels of a 4K monitor.

It’s not all about the GPU though, so I also compared all 4 systems in our hefty Handbrake encode test, where we transcode a 30GB file to format for Android tablets. The six-core setup shows why it is the best bang for buck for those who do a lot of multi-threaded tasks. I nonetheless have some queries about the effect of the bandwidth limitation on the Trinity Xtreme. Like the Falcon Northwest Tiki, the Asrock board used right here gets the six-core CPU into a tiny frame by compromising on program RAM bandwidth. It’s basically only two channels as an alternative of the obtainable four channels. but it doesn’t appear to hurt a lot that I can see right here.

PCWorld

The six-core Core i7-5820K in the Trinity Xtreme gives slightly much more overall performance than other six-core chips we’ve observed and easily outruns the quad-core in our PCWorld reference machine.

Why? Just why?
The actual question with the Trinity Xtreme is whether or not it is worth the bulk and the weight. The exact same system built into a regular micro-tower Pc would save you a lot of desk space– and frankly, offered the cost of the TriSteller case, a lot of cash.

That’s a query only you can answer. Perhaps you’re just tired after years and years and PCs that stole their design and style plans from a cereal box. You just want some thing that appears actually exclusive.

Possibly you actually want to show up your pal who likes to talk about how cool their gaming rig is. Or possibly, just possibly, you just want to believe distinct but do not want to pay the penalty when it’s time to upgrade down the road.

Reviewing the MK808 Technology

TheMK 808 is equipped an Android Mini PC with the Jeally Bean 4.1.1 version operating system.It is a media player for different television sets that runs the android operating system.

They can download several apps, play games, and listen to music and what not. Browsing the internet is also similar to the tablet devices and this MK808 version is certainly very faster than the previous versions of this type of mini devices. There are many apps and features included into the devices with different widgets that the users do not have to install. The functionality is also very smooth as what the android jelly bean version can offer. For example, this version has a very multi-tasking functionality which can be performed very effectively just like how one uses the tablet pcs with the android operating system.

Moreover, it may be for people who wants purchase these products to know that it does not include any type of keyboard or remote control with the device.

It may be less expensive to allow them to telephone a person at the resort, instead of phoning your own cellular.

Numerous AT& Capital t as well as T-Mobile cell phones function good overseas, whilst just specific cell phones through Verizon or even Run perform â EUR” examine your own working guide (look with regard to “tri-band” or even “quad-band”).

Samsung DA-E750 a Classy Stylish Dual Docking Speaker System at a Premium Price

Speakers systems are mostly similar in design but it’s in the extras and the innovations that catch out eyes. With the Samsung DA-E750 it has the almost routine shape that most modern speakers have (the box style) but the difference is that it may be one of the best looking model to grace our living rooms. It also promises docking for not only Apple’s phones/tablets but Android phones too which is a first and very welcome for people who want more choice.

Samsung have gone for not only a stylish look but a stylish sound adding its own hybrid digital/valve amp technology to add some warmth to the sound. There are plenty of speaker systems out there all sport similar functionality to this one so the question will be is the Samsung DA-E750 relying on looks to get it through or does it offer more to the listener than the average system?

Design
If there is one noticeable thing about the design of the DA-E750 it’s that it shows confidence. With an almost Victorian feel with its wooden exterior it looks good and it feels good. To add to this feel of quality is also the silver cone surrounds which look good and give that premium feel to the style, on the top there is also a window to the insides showing off the glowing red valves. All of this look gives the feel of not only quality but expense and is sure to fit into any home (as long as you like the wood style of course)

Features
Not only does the DA-E750 look good but it’s the features that really make it stand out, for good and bad reasons. Firstly there is the docking ability, this works for both Apple devices and Samsung with their Galaxy range. As long as your Android phone has a Micro USB slot any of these devices will connect but you’ll need to install the Samsung Audio Dock App to make it work with the system. The DA-E750 supports both Airplay and the Galaxy AllShare Play system as well as Bluetooth 3.0 and USB connectivity (MP3 and WMA formats only). Network connection is based on built in Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection. On the downside there is no DAB included.

When it comes to controls on the actual speaker system there is no display panel. This is obviously a choice made to keep the overall style of the box itself. The main buttons to control the sound are placed on the top which allow to set the volume and select input device. A remote is included though which is easy to use.

Sound Quality
Of course the DA-E750 can look good and be easy to use but we can’t forget its main job is to actually make our music sound the best it possibly can in the environment it’s put in. The good news here is that there is plenty of power with its 100W amplifier and you’ll find that the music from whatever source you provide sounds good. The bass is powerful and the use of the digital/valve hybrid amp system really brings out an extra depth in the audio. It’s not the best speaker system out there but it’s definitely a quality system.

Verdict
At £600/$626.95 the Samsung DA-E750 is a premium speaker system not only in looks and performance but price too. In terms of looks it’s one of the best, if not THE best on the market at the moment. It’s stylish and has the features to back up its looks. The fact that it’s a dual docking system for both Apple and Samsung and is adaptable to fit other Android devices makes it fairly unique too. There are said to be issues with the iPod control that make it slightly hit and miss but once these are worked around and it’s somewhat limited file compatibility (no FLAC, WAV or AAC) so it’s not perfect, but still a good choice.
