So If you haven’t heard, there’s a new monitor making a big splash around the net. It’s the Yamakasi Catleap Q270. It’s a beautiful piece of tech, but chances are you’ve never heard of it or the company. In all honesty, we hadn’t heard of Yamakasi either until about 2 weeks ago ourselves. The monitor sounds too good to be true, so we made sure that one got sent to us and put it through the ringer. If you want to give yourself a brief overview, check out our un-boxing video right after the break.
Not too long ago, the great folks of Pepcom through one of their signature press events in NYC. There’s always a theme and this time was no different. Since it was April and Earth Day wasn’t too long ago, the theme was being green and impacting the environment as little as possible. Here’s a run down of the cool stuff that we came across and think you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for in the near future.
UPDATE : CONTEST IS CLOSED! WE’LL HAVE ANOTHER SOON!
Do you remember this guy? You should because we just talked about it and thought it was a great case. So great in fact that we’re going to give it away! That’s right, our very first giveaway will be of this awesome little case.
So how do you enter? Well, just find us on twitter (@themardukreport) and leave a comment below with your twitter name and the name of the case below. We’ll use a random number generator and pull a number for the winner. Just like in Highlander, there can be only one winner. There are no runner up prizes this give away, but next time we might have more stuff for you all.
Oh, and the drawing will be open for a week starting from today. That’s May 7th to 14th, 2012 and is open for US residents only. Sorry to any international readers, but we’ve had cases shipped to us from overseas before and they weren’t pretty when we received them. We wouldn’t want broken cases showing up for you.
Noblesse oblige. I pray for your continuing service as a savior.
Computers get built around here an awful lot. There’s always some new-fangled part that we’re itching to try out or some theory we want to test. Believe us when we say that a computer in pieces on a table is the norm.
It should come to no surprise to the builders in the audience when we state that the case is the foundation of any build. If the case isn’t right for the application or even worse, it can’t hold the parts that were picked for the build, the entire build gets put on hold while you scavenge for a new case. There aren’t many people that would want a full-tower case , with all of it’s near 3 feet of glorious height, sitting next to their TV. Conversely, a cool looking Mini-ITX case isn’t going to hold enough high-end parts to able to be called a gaming system.
So where does one start? Especially if you’re on a budget for that next build? Well, the folks over at NZXT have a case just for you that’s light-years better than those generic cases in online stores. It’s called the Source 210 Elite. Continue reading NZXT Source 210 Elite chassis→
CES was many things to us here at The Marduk Report. This was our first CES and we were fortunate enough to go while still in our infancy. There was obviously tech stretching farther than the eye can see, most of it being amazing. There were plenty of great people that we met too. The crowds were big, but we’re from NYC, so it was nothing shocking to us. And then there were the parties. There were so many parties that by the Thursday during the show, we started reevaluating our party choices. And while we went to a number of parties and events, there was one that left a good and very memorable impression on us. It was also the last party you would expect to find at the world’s largest tech show. It was the Pron Party. Continue reading CES 2012 Post Show Report – Pink Visual Pr0n Party→
