    Went back to my Propus 380 from my Ensis 320. Why? See picture below. Seemingly not an uncommon issue either.



    Will most likely get a Corsair MM440 or another Propus unless someone can find a nice aluminum or no-friction mat/pad that's available for purchase. 2nd choice is a hard mouse pad with low friction (i.e. a sandpapered Propus or similar).

    I like my XTRAC PADS Ripper 11"x17"

    You should try finding an old-school Icemat.

    I used to do that too. I had an old laminated wood desk that I scratched up to varying degrees with my finger nails.

    The different patches of scratchiness were to give me different mouse sensitivities depending if I was sniping, turning a lot, etc.

    Then I get a real mouse pad and realized it was 10x better.

    I find it kind of odd... the WotLK CE mousepad I've had since launch day of WotLK and used for the majority of that time (now at least 3+ years worth of use) seems to be shockingly resistant to any signs of wear.

    I'm using a beat up mouse-mat with a Groucho Marx quote on it right now. Thinking about framing the WotLK mouse-mat.

    My kids killed mine. I got the steelseries starcraft one atm and it's holding up pretty good. I also tend to use the play mats from the CCG game there big can hold your keyboard and mouse along with other shit.

    I'm using a Steelseries Qck and it is holding up well. I had a XTRAC Ripper before, and it was great.

    My Propus 380 is still almost as good as new. You can definitely see that it has been used regularly, but it still works and performs as it should. I do however prefer a non-friction mousemat over a low-friction, high precision one.

    AMD accuses former top employees of stealing over 100,000 documents
    Chip maker says the defendants gave trade secrets to their new employer, Nvidia.


    AMD filed a complaint yesterday alleging that four of its former employees—one former vice-president and three former managers—transferred sensitive AMD documents before joining competing graphics chip maker Nvidia and then violated a “no-solicitation of employees” promise. The company alleges that Robert Feldstein, Manoo Desai, and Nicolas Kociuk collectively downloaded over 100,000 files onto external hard drives in the six months before leaving the company. All three and another manager, Richard Hagen, were accused of recruiting AMD employees after leaving for Nvidia.

    The most senior person accused in AMD's complaint is Robert Feldstein, who was the vice president of strategic development at AMD until his departure for AMD's competitor. ZDnet notes that Feldstein "helped broker major contracts to see AMD technology launch in the next-generation range of games consoles, including the Xbox, PlayStation, and the Wii U, before he left for Nvidia.” In the complaint, AMD says that after Feldstein and Hagen left, they recruited Desai, who then recruited Kociuk “and perhaps additional AMD employees to leave AMD for competitor Nvidia.”

    AMD says it forensically analyzed the former employees' computers and found additional evidence that “Desai and Kociuk conspired with each other to misappropriate AMD's confidential, proprietary, and/or trade secret information; and/or to intentionally access AMD's protected computers, without authorization and/or in a way that exceeded their authorized access.”

    The chip maker asked for injunctive relief from the court in its complaint, hoping to recover the files which it says it has forensic evidence of the four defendants taking. It also filed a restraining order against the four employees, which was granted. The order requires Feldstein, Desai, and Kociuk to retain all of their AMD property and preserve all computers in their ownership for forensic evaluation. Mr. Hagen was only ordered to refrain from recruiting any more AMD employees.
    Source: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2...000-documents/

    If this is true...I honestly don't know what consequences there could be for nVidia and/or the former AMD executives.

    Well, AMD was very clear that they are not attacking or putting any blame on nVidia.
    At least acc the SweC-article last week.
