What TV series have you watched?

Aside from Westworld I'm not really watching much on the moment and was randomly browsing Netflix and thinking I've not been watching much on there for a while, any recommendations for new series?

What TV series have you watched?

The Sens8 finale is up on Netflix now which feels much like Serenity as it finishes the Sens8 storyline but obviously it has to abandon all the carefully built up plots and focus on the secretive nasty agency one. However accepting that there were going to be more series it's definitely good to have...

Intel show off 28 core processor at 5ghz

I can't see any function for these processors for gaming PC's or consumers apart from for boasting, it's easy enough for both companies to effectively rebadge their server processors. I don't see what Intel was doing is any worse than AMD as both are pointless products aimed at getting headlines. Th...

Intel show off 28 core processor at 5ghz

There's been a lot of criticism of what is just a publicity stunt but I quite like it for how ridiculous it is: https://www.anandtech.com/show/12907/we-got-a-sneak-peak-on-intels-28core-all-you-need-to-know Although Intel is promising a Q4 release for this processor it seems unlikely, what it appear...

What you playing at the minute?

Oh wow, my own forum screwed up and wiped a long reply. Been trying to play Project Cars 2 but it's such a frustrating game, it's fun for a short while but it's so ridiculously punishing it puts off further play. The new Le Mans pack is out and I headed out onto the famous track with the hybrid Toyo...

What TV series have you watched?

I gave up a couple of episodes in and didn't seem worth the hassle getting back into it.

What have you bought today - VOL 4

Summer is definitely here at the moment, on one hand it's great to have bone dry trails with lots of grip but it can be quite a killer riding in this heat. I decided to treat myself to a Logitech Craft keyboard as I've been looking for a new keyboard with laptop style keys and backlighting without a...

What Film have you just watched? 2016+

Annoyingly the nice local cinema is not showing Deadpool 2 but I think I might breach my self imposed ban on Vue this time to see the film. I'm not sure what to think of Solo, I'm really not keen on the idea of it at all and it's getting lukewarm reviews. I thought Rogue One wasn't bad but ultimatel...

Topping MX3 - Desktop Ammplifier

Headphone amps do make a lot of sense as a lot of standard devices don't have the power to drive bigger headphones (I have some headphones only more specialist mp3 players can drive, the likes of mobile phones don't have a high enough output), I can also see the benefit of combining that with a USB ...

What Film have you just watched? 2016+

I decided to squeeze in Infinity War before popping down to London. On the whole I thought they did pretty well with what was pretty much an impossible task to bring together so many different characters into one storyline but at the same time it suffers quite a bit for it as it simply can't giv...

Topping MX3 - Desktop Ammplifier

I'm not quite seeing the point of this over a decent soundcard? It doesn't look like it can be separately used as a portable headphone amp like the Fiio units could. I use a PCI-E soundcard for my desktop and don't need an amplifier for my headphones.

2018: Techpond's 10 year anniversary meet!

Well that was fun, see you all in another ten years? It feels a bit like a wedding in that there's lots of preparation and planning to get everyone together then it's over before you know it. As much as it's a struggle to come south of the wall to the busy city lights of London it worked out well hi...

That was Fodder's recommendation, I won't take credit for it :D I was a little puzzled as I couldn't remember recommending anything. A KOM on the road is very impressive as I'm usually down in the thousands on the road bike, speaking of MTB and road I did my dual event which was 70km on the road fol...
