The News: Friends Are Important Edition Beth Snyder February 17, 2012 I’m afraid I’m a little philosophical today, bear with me. Yesterday I had both the worst and best day ever, and several friends are the reason it got pulled out of the garbage heap. We all have those few good friends who can put a smile on your face when you’re down, who can make you laugh when you really wanted to cry, who can pick you up when all you want to do is hide. Most of us don’t tell them how much we appreciate them, but we really should. So this is for my friends, you know who you are (and the fact that I know you’re reading this when most of you are decidedly NOT tech-savvy speaks volumes). Thank you for being you. Thank you for being there for me. Thank you for never doubting me. And thank you for helping me realize that regardless of what some people say or do, I am not unworthy of your trust and esteem. eTeknix gets us started with the Cyborg R.A.T.7 Albino Edition Gaming Mouse TweakTown takes on Final Fantasy XIII-2 Xbox 360 TechRadar spends some time with the Packard Bell OneTwo L ThinkComputers sits down with the Le Pan II TC979 Android Tablet KitGuru gets its hands on the Enermax Briskie Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Bundle TweakNews takes a look at the Samsung SA850 / S27A850D 27 Inch LED Monitor TechReviewSource tests out Norton 360 Version 6.0 HardwareLOOK goes inside the In-Win XFrame Limited Edition Pro-Clockers beats the heat with the Cooler Master NotePal X3 Silent Laptop Cooling Pad The Tech Report checks out OCZ’s Octane 128GB solid-state drive Top Review Shop points and clicks the Logitech G400 Gaming Mouse circuitREMIX chills out with ARCTIC’s Freezer 13 PRO and Freezer i30 CPU Coolers HardwareHeaven goes mobile with the HTC Titan Windows Phone techPowerUp examines the Thortech Thunderbolt Plus 1200 W Finally, PCSTATS gets into the 500GB Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Ultra-Portable Hard Drive Share This With The World!
