Why Does HP Charge 1000 Rupees For A 15-Minute Service?

After ACIV successfully overheated my laptop to the extent that it wouldn’t run for more than 30 minutes at a stretch, I knew that I had to clean the interiors of the machine. Having lost my old laptop to overheating,… Continue Reading →

ACIV – 50% Synched

It is 3:30 in the morning now, and my poor laptop has triggered a shutdown to prevent overheating four times in the last seven hours. I feel it’s worth it, because I’ve reached the end of the main storyline of… Continue Reading →

Assassin’s Creed IV:Black Flag Is Finally Here!

Not many days ago, I realised that it had been a year since I bought my laptop. One year. For a laptop whose owner is a normal user, it might not make any difference. For a laptop whose owner is… Continue Reading →

These are only estimates, but apparently the Playstation 4 costs around $381 to manufacture, which is $18 short of its U.S. selling price of $399. Sony reportedly sells the console at a loss of $60 per unit at the price…. Continue Reading →
