Reeven Ouranos RC-1401 Review (Page 1 of 4)

As a Honda fan, I believe they can really make cars that satisfy the majority of people’s needs. For young car enthusiasts who love speed but do not have too much money to spend, a Civic Si is a good choice. For a small family, either an Accord sedan or a CR-V SUV could be a nice daily driver. For a big family who love road trips and there is a boat to tow, nothing will be more suitable than a Pilot. Well, even if you want a more premium car but still enjoy Honda reliability, there will be Acura dealerships you can talk to. The thing is, Honda can basically cover the needs of almost everybody. Nevertheless, the product list of Honda is not endless, hence some customers may be disappointed for not having their dream cars available in the showroom. For example, Honda cannot offer a hardcore single-cab truck. By saying hardcore, I mean the truck should be body-on-frame for high rigidity and have a necessary single-cab for someone who needs a compact truck with maximum bed size. The cost for car companies to design a new model is incredibly high, therefore if there is no sign of great market demand, they will not build a car just for you. However, this is not the case for building a computer. We can freely choose the components to build the special machine we want. The only question is how to choose the right thing for the right build. Luckily, there are lots of reviews to help us evaluate those available products in the market. In this review, a CPU cooler – the Reeven Ouranos RC-1401, will be looked at. Is it a good CPU cooler? Let us read on and find out!

Keyboard Maintenance 101 ft. Cooler Master MasterAccessory Maintenance Kit | Reports

One thing I have taken for granted when living with my parents is that keeping a house clean does not happen by itself. Whether the task is to wash things like dishes or clothing, vacuum the floor, or just pick up after yourself, I never realized how much I did not do at home until I have lived alone. Then there are the dirtier things like cleaning your toilet or taking out the trash. Furthermore, there are maintenance things like checking your furnace filter or fixing small things. All in all, owning a house has made me realize how many chores I need to do to keep the house from looking like a pigsty. Any laziness or carelessness will lead to a messier home. The worst part is that the consequence of not doing so is a slow accumulation, so I could forget about it for a little bit. However, when the mess rears its ugly head, it is a pain to manage. Since I moved out, I have had to balance between doing small amounts of cleaning daily or taking care of things only after it has accumulated for a long while. Similarly, while mechanical keyboards are awesome, many of them can become dirty over some time. With deeper crevices and hard to reach areas, a keyboard can quickly become a dirty peripheral. Today, with some help from Cooler Master's MasterAccessory Maintenance Kit, we are going to take a look at some cleaning tips and also some small modifications you can make. Let us open up the kit and see what we can do!

Google’s updated Material Design is the future of how Android apps will look

From The Verge: Google is making changes to the visual style and design of its software and refreshing the design guidelines for Android apps. We saw the beginning of this shift with the initial developer release of Android P earlier this year. Today at its I/O conference, Google offered more examples of the colorful icons, rounded corners, and gratuitous use of white space that mark an evolution over the initial Material Design style that’s served as the visual foundation for Google’s apps and many third-party Android apps over the last four years.

Diablo III Switch Bundle Launches Nov. 2

From PC Mag: Any new Diablo game release is a big deal for Blizzard and whichever platform it is launching on, even if that release is an old game repackaged.
