Windows 8 has been finalized and is being sent to PC OEMs now. If you are part of MSDN or TechNet, the image is available for download. Is Windows 8 worth it? Paul Thurrot seems to think so.
Patrick shows off a few new toys he has playing with. Watch the segment for a rundown of the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750, the K60, and the Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 5000. Hey, we'll even throw in a Mophie iPad stand too...because why not?
Jim Louderback, Revision3's own CEO, wants to know when to buy the beautiful VT50 from Pansonic. Robert gives the rundown on when HDTVs are cheapest and when to make the jump to the next generation.
We'll cut to the chase: yes, absolutely blu-ray looks better than an upscaled dvd version. Upscaling is guessing what pixels are supposed to be there; nothing will beat having higher resolution source material. Check out the stills from the Alice in Wonderland to see how beautiful blu-ray can be.
Jaws has been released on blu-ray! Though we don't necessarily agree with the shark hate that this movie throws down, it is a classic. The best part of the new release is the bonus "in-depth look at the intricate process of restoring the movie."
Terry is a little nervous about backing up to the cloud. Do online companies keep backups? What if your data gets maliciously deleted? What if the data center is hit by a nuclear bomb? So many questions...and we have answers. Check out the segment for more.
Barry was kind enough to send in some benchmarks of how long it actually took to backup large amounts of data. It took him about 29 days to backup 2.5 TB. Our producer Roger Chang didn't have such great of luck. It took him over 6 weeks to backup 128GB because of throttling on the service's end.
Chris wants to setup a troubleshooting-free computer for one of his friends, similar to what Robert did for his dad last week. But he wants to do it for a whole lot less. Watch the segment for some ideas on cheap devices for non-techies and send in your own suggestions!
Ashley is worried that enabling 2-factor authentication on Gmail makes the account less secure because Google generates a 16 digit all lower-case password for each device. Wouldn't allowing uppercase and numbers be better? We squelch some of the fears and Patrick steals Roberts iPhone. Check it out.
