We’ve moved…


Hi everyone, thanks for being patient. We’re happy to say the wait is finally over. Our top secret project (yes, it was the fully-blown website) is now live, and available at www.stuffmideast.com. So come in, have a look, put your feet up and get stuck in to the region’s best-selling technology magazine. Still a few bugs, but we’re sure you’ll help us iron those out. Now click this link, and we’ll see you on the otherside.

deathwing_1024x0768

Pretty big news from MMORPG kings Blizzard today, they’ve announced the third expansion to the ludicrously popular World of Warcraft. It’s to be named Cataclysm and will feature two new playable races (the cursed worgen for the Alliance, and goblins for the Horde), increased level cap (to lvl85) and classic zones will be totally remade.

Worth knowing if you’re after a laptop at the moment, Dell Studio 15s are now available with slot-loading Blu-ray players. If you want to know what a slot-loading Blu-ray player looks like, Dell has kindly given us a picture (available after the jump). Thanks for that, Dell…

Razer Naga looks the part

Rzr_Naga_2

To be called a ‘gaming peripheral’ keyboards and mice need to offer precision spec, and look the part too. Luckily for Razer and its insane design team, the Naga is spot on. Big mouse and logo? Check. Extra buttons? Check. LEDs that give everything a blue hue? Check. And it even packs a whopping 5,600dpi laser sensor with over 500cm per second max tracking speed. If you need to improve your game, or think it’s cheaper than buying a blue lamp for your desktop, it’s available now for US$80.

Panasonic F8 toughbook is, well… tough

Panasonic’s F8 toughbook has just hit stores, and it’s mighty impressive (if you’re after a laptop that can stop bullets). Designed for the urban road-warrior, this toughbook packs built-in 3G, a 14.1in screen, Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM and power supply that runs off eating nails (not really). Yours, for around US$2,500.

Kingston hits 256GB flash territory

Kingston DatqTraveller

So let’s do the math: that’s over 64,000 songs, more than 340 films and too many pictures to count (we got to 107,571, then lost track) all on a flash drive. It’s a tad expensive, coming in at US$900, but can you complain with tech this tiny?

We’re seeing more and more all-in-ones crop up, but wish they would all look as good as this. The EZ1601-01 from E-Machines packs an Atom 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 160GB hard drive, ¬†all for the low low price of US$400. We also wish more desktops would share that price tag.
