In my previous post (10 of the best passively cooled HPC cases) I mentioned HD Plex and that their cases weren’t available. Well today I received word that their H5.S chassis is available. If you are looking for a great looking HTPC chassis and don’t need an ODD? Then the H5.S might just suite you.
It could be said that a HTPC is any PC that lives in the living room (or wherever your entertainment area is), is connected to a TV, and used for media purposes. That would only be technically correct. While any PC can be used as a HTPC not any PC makes for a good HTPC. [...]
Most typical entertainment set-ups usually consist of a set-top box (unless the TV is fairly new, I haven’t seen a new TVs that doesn’t have a built in TV tuner), a DVD or Blu-ray player, maybe an Amp and some sort of network media player like a Boxee Box, possibly a PVR or DVD recorder. [...]

What!? Why would you want to stop the future of the internet!? Because the internet, PCs and technology in general is becoming more closed, we are drifting back to the walled gardens of the 80s internet services. In the 80s a time before before the World Wide Web (WWW) existed there were services like AOL, [...]
I don’t think that many people realise that the internet, as we know it today, wasn’t always commercial, i.e. that it wasn’t always accessible to the general public via an ISP by paying them a monthly fee for an internet access plan. The internet has been around for 42 years depending on when you start [...]
Rewind to 2006 a common year that started on a Sunday in the Gregorian calendar. It was the 2006th year of the Common Era or Anno Domini designation, the 6th year of the 3rd millennium and of the 21st century, and the 7th of the 2000s decade. In 2006 the Winter Olympics were held in [...]
