PC geeks everywhere sighed the day Cooler Master took the Cosmos S case out of production. It was a beast, big, heavy, room for tons of ventilation, and to top it off the design was a modders dream, offering large surfaces for decals, lights, and more.
And now, it is back. The Cosmos II. And if you thought the last was big, just you wait. More after the wait… Read more: Cooler Master Resurrects the Cosmos [VIDEO]

Two years after the small Alaskan company gScreen announced that they would create a dual screen laptop, they have successfully accomplished the task! At least they have announced that they are putting them in pre-order, but I still call it a win for the company. The Spacebook, was the original title of the laptop and still is, however there are many key differences from any other dual screen laptop. The dual screens both sport a 17.3 inch display, each with 1920 x 1080 resolutions.
As cool as this beauty is, it seems to have some severe drawback. The whole thing weighs about ten pounds, so make sure that you’ve eaten you Wheaties before toting it around. It also sports a bevy of outdated specs.
Red Mere Challenges Mindset on HDMI Cables

Cable thickness often ties up the backs of our entertainment centers. Red Mere is making a change to the HDMI standards that we are used to.
According to Red Mere this is not done by reducing the size of the cables or by making them more flimsy. Red Mere states that they are using a decoding chip at the end of the HDMI cable that allows for more data to be streamed through the smaller cables than through the bigger ones.
The chip actually fits into the HDMI endpiece that allows for additional data transfer. We will probably see these cables coming packaged with systems by the end of the year or sooner. I think that this is a great option and look forward to taking advantage of freeing up my entertainment system.
