  • MSI launches Big Bang-XPower II motherboard for militant overclockers
    MSI Big Bang-XPower II

    Motherboards sporting Intel’s X79 chipset are finally starting to make a decent dent in the marketplace and, after showing off a pair of options at IDF, MSI is back with a model for the serious builders out there. The Big Bang-XPower II comes packing the features you’d expect of any gamer-friendly MoBo, including four-way SLI and CrossFire support, PCIe 3.0, eight DDR3 slots and plenty of extra power connectors for hooking up your high-powered parts. And the company is taking care of overclockers too with military grade components and features like Direct OC, which lets you tweak your CPU’s frequency with the push of a button. Check out the PR after the break and hit up the source for a few more pics.

  • Adobe’s Todd Teresi to lead Apple’s iAd unit, fully purge himself of Flash reliance

    It had to happen at some point, right? Adobe and Apple — two names in a similar field — would inevitably end up hiring someone that worked at the other firm in a past life, and unsurprisingly, the world is up in arms about an acquisition that would go unreported if not for the past drama between the two outfits. As the story goes, Todd Teresi (formerly of Adobe) has been hired to be the new chief of Apple’s iAd mobile advertising division, but since the hire hasn’t been officially confirmed, it’s all based on “sources familiar with the matter.” Interestingly, Bloomberg BusinessWeek asserts that the iAd team has been “cutting prices to keep customers from jumping ship to rivals, including Google,” noting that the dominance seen in the tablet market isn’t exactly translating on the advertising side. Something tells us Apple’s got a few bills to lose while experimenting, though.

  • Must See HDTV (January 4th – 8th)

    While we’re disappointed about some of the instant-classic bowl games we missed including in the listings during our extended New Year’s break, we figure also skipping over on the premieres of Work It and The Biggest Loser evens things out. Check below for the highlights remaining this week, followed after the break by our weekly listings of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.

    Portlandia
    If you’re looking for a comedy that’s a bit different, check out IFC’s satirical take on hipster culture, although you’ll probably need a subscription to the New Yorker as well as bookmarks for Pitchfork and Hype Machine to get the jokes. It stars and is written by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, whose characters travel through a slightly more absurd caricature of Portland, Oregon than the one that really exists, although it does star the real city mayor as the assistant to the mayor. It’s a niche show, but if you get it, you’ll get it. Check out a clip of what happens when the characters decide to watch just one episode of Battlestar Galactica embedded after the break.
    (January 6th, IFC, 10PM)

    Saturday Night Live
    While SNL can be hit or miss, we’re always intrigued when the host isn’t just another actor, and this week the show features Charles Barkley. This could either be fantastic or turrible (c) Barkley, but we’ve just got to see it either way. Kelly Clarkson will also be in attendance, this information may or may not be relevant to your interests.
    (January 7th, NBC, 11:30PM)

    The Firm
    With a plot that begins ten years after the events of the movie that starred Tom Cruise as lawyer Mitch McDeere, The Firm revisits John Grisham’s most popular character as he and his family leave the witness protection program to start a new life. Of course, things just can’t be so simple, and it appears he has stumbled on yet another law firm with a secret to hide. The new show premieres on NBC Sunday night, check out a preview trailer after the break.
    (January 8th, NBC, 9PM)
