New Keyboard Time - Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition Essential Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Razer BlackWidow Tournament Edition Essential Mechanical Gaming Keyboard As time goes on there is a never ending need for newer and better hardware. I recently had to upgrade my hardware set with a new keyboard. I started my search with a few key things in my mind. The keyboard had to be mechanical, it had to have anti-ghosting protection, and it had to be around 100 dollars at most. The blackwidow tournament edition filled all of those categories. This keyboard has satisfied my needs and has exceeded my expectations. I knew i’d notice some difference between my old non-mechanical keyboard. I was shocked at how significant of a difference it made. I feel the keys responding to my actions better. The keyboard has served its purpose and satisfied my needs in the gaming and typing world. I highly recommend this keyboard as a low budget gaming accessory.

Noted: How to pick your first programming language from Udacity

I discovered this infographic from Udacity via BoingBoing this morning and thought it might be useful to some of you who are looking to begin a career in programming. Click the infographic to see a full-sized version. "4 Ways to Pick Your First Programming Language If you haven’t picked your first programming language, the programming world is your oyster. Yet with evangelists for every language telling you their language is the best, choosing one to start with can be incredibly overwhelming. We’ve looked at the data for the top ten programming languages in the US (based on IEEE Spectrum data) to help you pick the best language to start with based on your priorities in lifestyle, location, and career potential."

3-D Printers -- New Tech, New Times

3-D printing, the next step in prototyping currently and the future of mass production. 3-D printers are being used for all kinds of tasks today. In our Hex-labs makerspace tour we saw their wall of printers working away at various projects. 3-D printing gives a physical prototype to something you only had to imagine and then plug into software on your computer. What used to take model builders hours and sometimes even days could now be roughly completed in a day at most for the average hobbyist. Even big corporations are finally taking the leap forward with 3-D printing being used to make the models for molds that would later be used for the mass production of toys or other such things. Even the food industry is taking ideas from the 3-D printing world.There were several 3-D printers shown off at last years CES that were solely used for printing food. They could print in sugars and chocolates and were able to produce edible art that would never have been possible before. They ev
