DC auto show 2012 - Lamborghini Aventador


The other day I was at the 2012 DC auto show. This is a picture of the Lamborghini Aventador, one of the fastest cars in the world and one of the most powerful. At nearly 700HP this supercar hits 0-60 in 2.9 seconds. And at only $400,000 this is a great daily driver for anyone on a tight budget

Smartphone ownership rates by age and income.


Obviously the younger generation is much more likely to own a smart phone but its interesting to see how salary affects smartphone ownership rates. In the first set of bars people who make less than 15k a year and are from age 18-24 are more likely to own a smartphone than people who make 15-35k.

Skyrim High-resolution texture pack!


There is now a texture pack out to make the already beautiful game skyrim even more realistic. This new texture pack looks great but it will not hesitate to consume loads of video memory so make sure you have a decent video card before installing this mod. And as with all mods PC only.

Best home theater audio cable.


There are many different audio cables but out of all of them including fiber optic HDMI is the most capable. The reason HDMI is the best is because it supports the high bandwidth loss-less audio codecs like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master audio. Fiber optic cables do not have the required data rates for these high quality audio streams. Another upcoming cable is Display port; an upcoming cable that should start to show up in televisions and high end electronics. Many graphics cards and professional grade monitors now come with display port connectivity.

Corsair Force GT SSD review


This is a relatively new SSD from Corsair and is probably one of the highest performing SSD's in its class. This SSD runs off of sandforce controllers which allow for extreme data rates and sata 6gb/s connectivity. Just for reference a harddrive typically does around 100mbps sequential and as you see in this picture this ssd is blazing at 400mbps! Great upgrade for anyone tired of waiting for their harddrives.
