Republic of Gamers unleashes world’s fastest gaming monitor

After first revealing the world’s fastest gaming monitor at CES 2020 back in January, Asus has today given full details, pricing and availability for the new ROG Swift, which boasts a 360-Hz refresh rate for “silky-smooth gameplay and ultra-realistic visuals.”

In the professional gaming world, every millisecond counts, and Asus believes that its latest envelope-pushing ROG Swift PG259QN will give top esports players an edge over the competition.

The monitor features a 24.5-inch Full HD (1.920 x 1,080) IPS panel with a 360-Hz native refresh rate (though it supports 240 Hz and 144 Hz too) and 1-ms gray-to-gray response time, 400 cd/m2 brightness, is HDR10 compatible and can display up to 16.7 million colors. It also comes with a built-in Nvidia G-Sync processor for the promise of tear- and stutter-free onscreen action without any input lag.

Asus says that click-to-response time has been shown to fall from 34.5 ms

Grab Acer’s 24-inch 1080p monitor on sale for $100 for Costco members

The Acer K243Y bi 24-inch 1080p IPS monitor is down to $99.99 at Costco. You’ll need to be a Costco member to secure that price, otherwise Costco will charge you an extra 5%. Still, that’d be worth it at this price because the monitor normally goes for around $200. This is a unique model, but Acer has a ton of similar displays around this size with these specifications and you can see similar versions go for $200 at other retailers like Walmart.

For $100 you’re not getting the best of the best, but you’re also getting pretty darn good stuff. I really think this is a great screen if you’re someone who’s working with a tight budget for your computer build or you need a solid second monitor to use. Maybe you went all out for a primary monitor loaded with all the trimmings and just need something on the

Samsung DeX 101: Turn a Galaxy phone or tablet into your primary computer

The promise of using your phone as your primary computer is a reality and with flagship Samsung phones priced at more than $1,000 using your phone as your computer may be a way to save money.

Modern smartphones are more powerful than the computers used just a few years ago, but over the past decade, we have seen unsuccessful attempts to turn our handheld devices into computers. Recall the Palm Foleo in 2007, the Redfly Mobile Companion in 2009, or the Motorola Atrix in 2011.

Cyborg: Human organs could soon merge with computers to monitor health

A new ‘cyborg-like’ technology has been developed to safely merge electronic devices with human tissue to better monitor health and track tumours.

Scientists from the University of Delaware found a way to attach devices inside a human body by connecting it to tissue using a coating that is more energy efficient. 

Connecting electronics to tissue is a ‘huge challenge’, researchers say as materials used in technology like gold and silicon cause scarring that can interrupt data flow.  

For applications inserted into muscle or brain tissue, electrical signals need to flow for them to operate properly, but scars interrupt this activity, the team explained. 

The US researchers have developed new coatings for ‘human-machine’ devices that counteract issues from scarring caused by materials used in microelectronics. 

Scientists from the University of Delaware found a way to attach devices inside a human body by connecting it to tissue using a coating that is

Donations are sought from people across the Bay Area.

Vouch4Vets, which helps connect veterans with white-collar jobs, is switching gears to help connect teachers with larger monitors meant to make their jobs easier come the start of the school year.

“Just imagine trying to manage 25 7-year-olds on a 13-inch screen,” wrote Executive Director David Brennan. “Impossible.”

Brennan initially put a call-out on his Facebook page and sought to recruit a web of donors throughout the region. As the idea gained traction, he got his nonprofit involved.

So far Vouch4Vets has collected more than a dozen monitors and computers, thanks in large part to donations from Alamo IT company Portable CIO. It’s a great

Vissles 15.6 inch portable touchscreen monitor

If the global pandemic has taught us anything (apart from how important it is to be nice to people and how often we should wash our hands), then it is just how different our work lives can turn, quite quickly.

Strangely then, this year has been a really good time to look at gadgets i.e. a video doorbell is no longer ‘just a video doorbell’, it’s a way of being able to answer the door safely when you’re in quarantine.

The Inspect-a-Gadget elves felt kind of the same way about the Vissles Monitor i.e. it was a way of taking a laptop on holiday and actually being able to create a dual-screen office experience… and for those of us that ‘never turn off’, that is a good thing.

The Vissles-M, 15.6-inch Portable Touchscreen Monitor is priced at $199.00 USD, which (at the time of writing) should translate to £152.03 in
