Sony had to make a PC gaming monitor because the PS5 isn’t enough

It’s no mystery why Sony made a PC gaming monitor that can also work well with the PS5. The PC gaming business is simply too big to ignore, and it’s just money on the table that’s otherwise up for grabs by other monitor makers. 

Sony didn’t say those exact words, but it didn’t have to for me to know that it’s one of the reasons why it decided to announce two gaming monitors this week. Another reason is because Sony’s growing focus on services means that PS Plus will eventually go beyond the console. Getting its games in front of more people instead of locking them down as exclusives has, in the past few years, become a welcome change in strategy. 

Sony is late to this particular party, though. Nintendo’s Switch and Valve’s Steam Deck can be played anywhere by design, and while you don’t see Microsoft making gaming monitors

NewsDepth A+: Computer Repair | NewsDepth Topic

During the pandemic, many people learned new skills or started new hobbies. For example, I learned how to cook.  A pair of brothers at Incarnate Word Academy, learned a skill that not only helped their fellow classmates, but could also give them a jump-start on a career. Liam and Colin have always been fascinated with how computers work and they are this week’s A+ Award recipients. 

Liam and Colin had watched many hours of Youtube videos that introduced them to building and repairing computers and laptops.  The opportunity for hands-on application came when the brothers participated in an afterschool technology program called “How to Build and Troubleshoot a Computer” at their elementary school, Incarnate Word Academy.  In this program, the students took apart and rebuilt desktop computers. The brothers were able to learn new skills and apply what they had learned previously from the online videos.  “Liam and Colin were

Should You Upgrade From Your 1080p PC Monitor to 1440p?

We’re rapidly reaching the point where 1080p PC gaming is considered “outdated,” and many players are looking to upgrade. Most people likely assume 4K is the natural next step; that was the upgrade path for most TV owners, after all. However, 4K monitors are more expensive and harder to come by than 4K TVs, so many PC builders opt for 1440p displays instead.

What is 1440p?

1440p resolution (also referred to as 2K resolution or QHD) is 2560 x 1440 pixels, which is twice as many pixels as 1080p displays and about half as many pixels as a 4K display. That might make 1440p sound like a stop-gap, but considering 1440p displays usually run smaller than 4K monitors and you typically sit closer to a monitor than a TV, 1440p is an excellent resolution for PC gaming monitors, with noticeably higher detail quality.

Logitech’s quarterly sales down 12%, CFO to depart

Oct 25 (Reuters) – Logitech International (LOGN.S) reported a big drop in quarterly sales and profit on Tuesday, as the computer peripherals maker was hit by tough comparisons, a strong dollar and fragile consumer confidence as economies slow down around the world.

When to use rechargeable batteries and how to recycle them

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Batteries power all kinds of things from our TV remote to flashlights to toys. But before you buy a fresh batch, Consumer Reports has dug into why and when to use rechargeable batteries.

Not only can they save you money but they are better for the planet.

Meghan Patterson and her family have been using rechargeable batteries for about eight years.

“I worry a lot about our environmental impact when it comes to things like batteries,” she said.

Both rechargeable and single-use batteries contain toxic chemicals and heavy metals that can pollute the environment. They both also require water and energy in the manufacturing process and release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

But a 2016 study in The International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment says that rechargeable batteries are more sustainable than disposables after you’ve used them at least 50 times, something that shouldn’t be a problem
