Keeping with the announcement of 200 words or less, this particular topic will be covered in various parts. My dislike for Apple is no secret. Friends of mine who have Apple products and I joke with each other about the other’s misguided ways. I will never lose a friendship over an Apple product, at least not from my side of things though I really don’t like Apple. Continue reading
Yep, I know. You have all heard it so many times before. Well I’m going to be trying something new here. Reviews of games, movies, news and whatever strikes my fancy or nerves. All reviews will be 200 words or less. The limit in words will hopefully allow me to keep up with the site while also providing a quick and enjoyable reading experience for any visitors that may actually stop by here. Continue reading
I won’t spend too much time on this. There are countless Apple vs Android articles out there and there will be countless more added in time (obviously). iPhones, iPods and iPads are, as electronics, stellar and good products. They provide an excellent experience for a particular type of people. Android products, which at this time are mainly phones and tablets (with a few MP3 players mixed in) are usually stellar and good products, depending on who makes them, and offer an excellent experience as well, again depending on who makes them and your preference as far as interfaces go.

This is a list of initial thoughts and questions. I’ll flesh them out sooner or later!
1) Despite being listed as a tablet, the Nexus 7 seemingly uses the phone “version” of ICS. Unless ICS 4.1 drops the “normal” ICS tablet interface it would seem that Google is forcing the phone interface on their new “tablet.” Continue reading
Perhaps it is the way I think or the words I chose when doing a search but it seems that while a few specific forums give an idea the actual steps to force one’s m11x to use its high performance graphics card is below. I was noticing that some games downloaded by Steam, that the m11x should be able to run without a problem, were lagging and jumpy. I also noticed the same for Tribes Ascend, until I found the right click “Run with graphic processor” option. Well recently when I downloaded Magicka it was choppy as hell. Ok recently was several, several months ago. Tonight I was messing around with Trine 2 demo and was like “what the mother (happy mother’s day!) fucking hell?!” I even purchased the first Trine directly from their site, DRM free, because I was annoyed. Well after I got my Mole Shui levels back to where they were supposed to be I started digging around the internets and also on my computer.
Here are the steps that I took:
1 ) Close Steam
2 ) Open the NVIDIA Control Panel from the Start Menu
3 ) Go to “Manage 3D settings” link on the left and then the “Program Settings” tab on the right
*Now I read on a forum post that simply making it so the Steam.exe client is forced to run with the High-performance NVIDIA Processor will work. This didn’t work for me.
4 ) Click on the “Add” button and navigate to where you installed your Steam folder. Double click on the Steam folder, then SteamApps and then common. This is where all of your game folders are. Double click on the game folder you want to add and then select the exe and hit the “Open” button.
*My path to the common folder is as follows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\
5 ) Select “High-performance NVIDIA Process” from the drop down next to “2.” on the screen.
6 ) I personally didn’t mess with any options in “3.”
7 ) Select Apply that appears at the bottom after you have made the changes.
8 ) Close the Control Panel (or add more games following steps 3 through 7 for each one)
9 ) Start up Steam and then run your games with smooth, high-performance, delicious moleness!
