It came to our attention today that Thermaltake’s Global Website has been hacked. Website being hacked is nothing new, but normally the targets are larger companies or government websites, not a tech / gaming company like Thermaltake. Maybe it was an angry customer who was not satisfied at a Thermaltake product or maybe just a PR stunt by Thermaltake. We will never know, but nevertheless check out our screenshot below of the defaced Thermaltake page, or head over to their site before it is changed.
It seems sort of ironic that tomorrow is my Birthday and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive comes out. I have been playing Counter-Strike on and off for years, even in the competitive circuit. It has always been a game that I’ve come back to over and over again. I have been spending some time playing the Global Offensive Beta over the past couple of month and I think the improvements bring new life into the game. Valve recently released the cinematic trailer for the game, which you can see below.
Mini PC systems are great, especially for media or web browsing machines. They are very small and out of the way, they are easy to take with you, they have a small power footprint and they require hardly any maintenance at all. While most mini PC’s are great for doing simple tasks, what about gaming or more intensive tasks? This is where the Giada D2305 comes in. Powered by the Intel i5-3427U processor and NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 graphics it is aimed at the mid-range to be an all around system that can perform basic tasks as well as intensive ones without any issues. Let’s see what the D2305 is made of shall we?

Have you heard of Steam’s big picture mode? First announced last year, Big Picture Mode allows users to easily navigate the steam interface on a large TV screen. Big Picture Mode will be open for beta access in September, as confirmed by product design executive Greg Coomer.
Many steam games play very well with a controller, but even if you have your PC connected to your TV you will need at least a mouse to get the game started. With Big Picture the Steam UI is designed to be used with larger TV’s and with a controller, although you can still use a mouse and keyboard of course. Bringing this new UI to the “lounge” or living room area steam hopes to allow greater accessibility to their digital distribution platform.
