Watch Free Television From Your Computer….Its True!!!

Posted by Dresonic on May 23, 2007

Have you ever thought of doing something with out paying for it…??? Well of course you do, you’re only from earth where life is hard and there is a short on money!!! Well dresonic got you covered. I have used crappy services in the past to try and bypass the inevitable which is of course watching TV in the hall or on my brand new iphone…ok maybe I went over board with the iphone thing but point being I wanted a way to stop watching TV on TV on start watching in the leisure of my comfy chair. Enough pussyfooting around let mi get to the point.

For Free TV try  TVU its a free download which is one of the better ones i’ve seen. Channels include SPike TV, COmedy CEntral, SCI-FI and Nickalonean to name a few.

For TV on demand get JOOST which is almost open to the public and is also a free download. You will need an invite, you can email me if you need one im giving them away for free.

For the JAMAICANS who want to watch TVJ and CVM TV email me and I will send a link to you.

Good Processor Prices!!!!!!!

Posted by Dresonic on May 9, 2007


With Intel’s recent price reduction I figured it was a good time to show you a couple of placed where you can buy the processors cheap. The prices compared to two weeks ago have dropped a little again.

And they are really cheap aren’t they ? Check out the E6600 (really magnificent perfomance!) for 224 USD. The E6700 is now priced at the old E6600 level, roughly 320 bucks. Core 2 Quad then E6600 … 529 USD !

Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Dual Core Processor for $188.00

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Dual Core Processor for $224.00

Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Dual Core Processor for $318.00

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Dual Core Processor for $529.00

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 Quad Core Processor for $967.00

BTW if you click on the prices you go to the store directly and can check stock, at the time of writing all CPUs where on stock.

With Intel’s aggressive pricing on the new CPUs AMD could only do one thing .. drop their prices as well. They did recently and are much more competitive now. Did you know you can pick up the AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Dual Core Processor for merely 229 USD ? Let me put some prices in an overview for you.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Dual Core Processor for $229.00

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Dual-Core Processor for $174.00

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Dual Core Processor for $129.00

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Dual Core Processor for $97.90

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Dual Core Processor for $59.00

You click on the prices you go to the store directly and can check stock, at the time of writing all CPUs where on stock. Whatever your choice is .. now is definitely a good time to pick up a new CPU.

Pavilion HDX HP’s first gaming notebook

Posted by Dresonic on May 9, 2007


HP is about to release its first-ever gaming notebook, according to a series of images and specs that have slipped out online. The Pavilion HDX should be the first fruits of the Voodoo PC buyout and is likely to include both high-performance parts for gaming as well as avid movie watchers. Similar to the XPS M2010, the HDX will more closely resemble a portable desktop with a 20-inch display and a handle to carry the 12-pound system. The lower half of the casing is large enough that a full-featured Windows Media Center remote docks to the left of a full-size keyboard, complete with touch-sensitive media keys at the top.

  • Centrino (Core 2) Duo T7700 2.4GHz CPU
  • 20.1-inch 1680 x 1050 “Ultra Brightview” display
  • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT 256MB graphics (DirectX 10)
  • 4GB RAM
  • Dual 200GB SATA drives, eSATA port
  • Integrated ATSC / NTSC tuner with IR blaster
  • 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth
  • HD DVD (read-only), dual layer DVD±RW drive
  • ExpressCard slot, HDMI out
  • Specs for the system weren’t revealed, but the system will be “for gamers,” according to the source. It should use Intel’s Santa Rosa-based Core 2 Duo processors, which are expected to top at 2.4GHz but may be offered with factory-unlocked Core 2 Extreme models at 2.6GHz or higher. A high-end dedicated video chipset is certain and may involve NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce Go 8000-series GPU. Media options will be equally strong and are likely to include an HD DVD option with HDMI output as well as a webcam.

    No release date was pegged for the HDX in the leak, which claims only that the system will be available in the coming months. The relatively finished state of the product images, however, suggests a closer release which may occur as soon as this week’s official release by Intel of the Santa Rosa notebook platform

    Adobe releases preview versions of After Effects CS3 and Premiere Pro CS3

    Posted by Dresonic on April 16, 2007

    Let the fun begin! Adobe has released preview versions of After Effects CS3 and Premiere Pro CS3. This should give you something to play with until the final products ship “mid-summer”.

    The After Effects preview is available to licensed users of After Effects 7, Production Studio, Video Bundle or Web Bundle. You will need to provide your AE7, Production Studio or Bundle serial number in order to get an After Effects CS3 preview serial number. If you don’t own any of the required products, you can check out the software for 2 days before it self destructs. The preview is available as a Universal Binary for Mac and XP/Vista platforms.

    The Premiere Pro preview is available for Intel Macs and XP/Vista platforms. Sorry PowerPC users, there are no plans for a version of Premiere Pro for you. I don’t see any license restriction on this preview so it looks like anyone can give it a whirl. There is a big gotcha if you are running Mac OS 10.4.9. DV Capture will not be functional, and that’s kinda a big deal. Adobe is working with Apple to resolve this problem, but if you want to capture DV with the preview version, Adobe recommends you reinstall the OS using your original system discs, then update to 10.4.8. No thank you.

    Remember, these are preview versions so if you get into trouble there is no tech support. As a Premiere Pro to Final Cut Pro switcher, I’m curious how Premiere’s entry back into the Mac world will play out.

    AVG gives away free anti rootkit

    Posted by Dresonic on April 15, 2007

    Good stuff from Antivirus software manufacturer AVG as today they introduced a free anti-rootkit piece of software. Rootkits burrow around and lurk in applications or the kernel of an operating system.

    AVG Anti-Rootkit is a powerful tool with state-of-the-art technology for detection and removal of rootkits. Rootkits are used to hide the presence of a malicious object like trojans or keyloggers on your computer. If a threat uses rootkit technology to hide itself it is very hard to find the malware on your PC. AVG Anti-Rootkit gives you the power to find and delete the rootkit and to uncover the threat the rootkit is hiding.

    They can do nasty nasty things like collect passwords from PCs without you knowing. AVG reckons they’re now more dangerous than the usual malware because AV software can’t always detect them. It’s completed a six month beta test and will make the software available for free on its web site, here.

    Microsoft: XP SP3 is not cancelled

    Posted by Dresonic on April 15, 2007

    I’ve got to admit that I wouldn’t be surprised to see Microsoft table Service Pack (SP) 3 for Windows XP, as Windows expert Paul Thurrott claims the Redmondians have done.

    “The company has completely abandoned Windows XP, and it has absolutely no plans to ever ship an XP SP3,” Thurrott posted to his Web site on April 6. “My guess is that Microsoft will do what it did with the final Windows 2000 Service Pack: Claim years later that it’s no longer needed and just ship a final security patch roll-up. This is the worst kiss-off to any Microsoft product I’ve ever seen, and you’d think the company would show a little more respect to its best-selling OS of all time.”

    Last fall, Microsoft admitted that XP SP3 had slipped and was now a 2008 deliverable. If Microsoft were to go a step further and dump XP SP3, such a move wouldn’t be too shocking, especially given Redmond’s ongoing reticence to commit to Vista SP1 because service packs are passe.

    I asked Microsoft for an official comment on Thurrott’s XP SP3 post and received the following response:

    “SP3 for Windows XP Home Edition [and Professional] is currently plannedfor 1H CY2008. This date is preliminary,” said a Microsoft spokeswoman.

    In other words: At least for now, Microsoft is sticking by the XP SP3 information on its product-lifecycle page.

    Anyone else hearing SP3 will (or won’t) be a 2008 deliverable?
