    Exactly what amount of money would you be willing to pay for a one-of-a-kind, custom-made Nintendo Entertainment System... PC?

  • News: Find the Perfect Apps for Your Phone

  • News: Replacing a Faulty TV Under Warranty

    We bought an LCD TV from a company called TCL last year. It came with a standard two-year manufacturer's warranty. Five months in, vertical black and purple lines appeared in the center of the display, and got worse as time went on. We sent the TCL repair center the broken TV, but they sent back a refurbished RCA TV with the same specs. The remote accompanying the new TV was damaged and had corroded batteries; there was no power cord for the TV, and no paperwork whatsoever. A few weeks have passed since we called TCL asking for a power cord, remote, and paperwork. I know warranties may allow companies to send refurbished units as a replacement, but the repair center sent a totally different brand with nothing else in the box. I'm not sure what to do!

In fact, a report published last week by IDG Connect found that 91 percent of businesses have deployed the iPad. But since company IT administrators can’t possibly control every employee’s personal device, those documents aren’t necessarily secure—devices can get lost or stolen, for instance.
