Open Source CPU Info App for Windows
So you’re playing with your shiny new Windows 8 tablet PC, when one of your like-minded geeky friends asks you to recite its hardware specs. Unfortunately, when you’re about to spout off details of its Clover Trail architecture and its supported features, you draw a blank. In fact, you even forget about its clock speed and whether or not it supports virtualization.
Luckily, this is where XDA Forum Member familyguy59 comes in. He has shared source code for an app that detects CPU information. The app actually goes beyond simple information such as max clock speed, processor name, and number of physical and logical cores. It can even detect bus speed, cache sizes, and much more. And best of all, the application is open source.
Today I created a small program which detects most information of your CPU. The program is called ‘DetectCPU’ and it does what it says.
The program is licensed under the GPL3.0. This program is written in Visual Basic(.Net) 2012 for Windows Desktop.
Want to look at the code or compile a copy for yourself? Interested in incorporating some of its functionality into your own app? Whatever the case, head on over to the original thread to take a peek!

Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far... Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
Yesterday, Sprint announced a new unlimited scheme that offered customers an $80 bundle, which included a $60 plan for unlimited talk, text and high speed data and a $20 payments towards towards a 24 month phone lease, However, a footnote in the plan stated that video streaming would be limited to 600Kbps for users, and this revelation created a flurry of indignation. In a bid to save face in light of the scores of agitated customers, Sprint published a blog post...
