Farmers 'seize' office property of Gujarat government entity over pending land compensation- The New Indian Express
By PTI AHMEDABAD: A group of farmers took possession of movable assets, including computers and printers, of the Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam at its Gandhinagar office in Gujarat in a bid to recover their long-pending dues as ordered by a civil court. The farmers hailing from the Vadodara district had given their land to the state government for the construction of the Narmada canal over 34 years ago, but have yet to receive the full compensation, their advocate said. They took possession of at least nine CPUs, an equal number of monitors, and five printers belonging to the Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd (SSNNL) on Saturday. Videos of the farmers in action surfaces on social media on Monday. Some farmers of Abhol village in Padra taluka of the Vadodara district came to the SSNNL's office with an "attachment warrant" issued in...

What Game Mode on TV Actually Does

What is Game Mode on TV? TVs are good at a certain thing, and that is reproducing an image that is pleasing to the eye. However, in most cases, that means using image processing that takes up a lot of power and even more importantly, time. When you are playing a first-person shooter, the last thing you want is to wait for your screen to make an image more aesthetically pleasing while bullets and explosive ordinance are flying around. Game mode or PC mode, depending on the manufacturer, turns off image processing which is unnecessary for playing video games, and thus increases the response time of the TV. However, the game mode itself will make most TV screens better, but one should take into consideration all the various components which contribute to the overall input lag. What is Input Lag? Overall, the definition of input lag is the time...

Logitech G and Tencent are building a cloud gaming handheld set to release later this year

Logitech G and Tencent are building a cloud gaming handheld set to release later this year
Logitech G, the gaming-focused branch of the maker of PC and console peripherals, has announced a partnership with Tencent Games to release a “cloud gaming handheld” later this year. The two companies are in talks with the teams behind Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now, which presumably means that these services will be supported out of the box. They will allow gamers to play AAA titles on the go. The announcement talks solely of cloud gaming – it’s not even clear if any games will be able to run on the device itself. This sets it apart from the likes of the Steam Deck, which is focused on local gaming (it can do cloud gaming too, but it’s cumbersome without an onboard 5G or even 4G connection). Renders of Tencent's "PC Console" from a patent filed in 2020 This could be unrelated, but earlier this...

HP Deskjet 2710e review: A cheap compact printer that won’t exceed your expectations

HP Deskjet 2710e review: A cheap compact printer that won’t exceed your expectations
‘Keep it simple’ advises the promotional sticker attached to the top of the HP Deskjet 2710e, and that’s exactly what this printer is designed to do. It’s the most basic all-in-one in HP’s new range, with a 7.6ppm 1200dpi print engine and a single sheet 1200dpi A4 flatbed scanner on the top. HP claims it can handle a monthly duty cycle of up to 1,000 pages, but it says more that the recommended monthly page volume is just 50 to 100. This is fundamentally a home printer used for homework, hobbies and printing e-tickets or holiday docs, but it could also work as a small or home office printer for the mostly paperless office. If you’re only printing 50 pages per month and barely doing any scanning or copying, why splash out for more speed or features that you’re not going to need?The price is obviously the key selling point, but it’s...

Russia is slowly running out of keyboards it can use

A Russian keyboard
Having to use a keyboard that doesn't use a standard UK layout instantly turns me into a 90 year old man. Where normally my hands glide over the keys with robotic rhythm, I'm reduced to hunting and pecking for every character, slowing my work to a crawl. I can relate, then, to Russian PC users, who are finding it harder and harder to get their hands on Russian keyboards under the country's sanctions-circumventing 'parallel imports' scheme, per a Kommersant report (opens in new tab).Russia published its list of brands for 'parallel import' at the beginning of May (opens in new tab), in response to ever-mounting western sanctions and the departure of countless tech companies (opens in new tab) following its invasion of Ukraine. The system permits Russian companies to purchase restricted goods from outside Russia, provided they were acquired legally...

ASRock appears to be working on its own gaming monitors

ASRock appears to be working on its own gaming monitors
ASRock is well known for its motherboards, but in recent years we've seen the company branching out into new areas. Soon, ASRock will be unveiling its first set of gaming monitors, reportedly starting off with five displays.  As found by @momomo_us, ASRock has submitted five monitors to KCC (Korea's FCC). Starting with PG34WQ15R, this is a 34-inch curved monitor with a VA panel, 3440×1440 resolution, 165Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync Premium support. The other curved monitor is the PG27Q15R, but the specifications are unknown. Still, judging by its name, it should feature a QHD 27-inch VA curved panel. Then, we have the PG27FF, which seems like a standard FHD monitor with an IPS panel, 165Hz refresh rate and support for FreeSync Premium as well. Another flat panel listed by ASRock is the PG32QF, but like the PG27Q15R, the specifications weren't...
