A few years ago we ran a charity campaign to help dig wells in Africa. We asked Tekzilla viewers to donate...and boy did you! Together we raised over $11,000 and can now see the fruits of the fundraiser. Click here to see the wells and clean water that we helped create.
If you haven't done so already, you should update Java and remove the plugin from your browsers through the control panel. Even the Department of Homeland Security recommends you disable Java! See CERT's suggestions on what to do.
We saw so many products at CES that it was hard to cover them all. Things like the Panasonic ZT60, Sony Simulview sets, and Sharp boomboxes really impressed us. Keep an eye on Robert's site for images of other cool products.
Joyce was having problems with her HDTV set and asked Robert for some help. He referred her to the Samsung customer support line...and wouldn't you know it--Samsung actually helped. They replaced the DMD chip for free of charge and now Joyce once again has a beautiful picture.
Kevin noticed some coverage of Buffalo branded NAS devices and wanted to know our thoughts on them. The Amazon reviews don't seem great, so we go over SmallNetBuilder.com to see some of the best rated devices.
Bradley is having trouble finding software to play back his HD DVDs on Windows 8. Turns out Robert's favorite Bluray playback software has HD DVD support built in. Take a look at Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre 5 and MakeMKV if you feel like ripping the discs.
According to Anthony: of course! Steam drives a Piston.
