I have a TrackIR device which I use primarily with Flight Simulator X, and ran into an issue out of the blue.  Nothing was changed on my system and it was running fine previously, using version 5.1 of the software.  Suddenly when TrackIR would load it would simply say "error" in a dialogue box and then close.  To get past this error I discovered that the checkbox under OpenGL Settings called "Triple Buffering" was causing the issue.  Simply un-checking the box has made the error go away. 

Thus far, even at this writing, version 5.2 of their software has not fixed this glitch.  This was with my ATI 5850 card combined with Windows 8 x64 RTM (and the latest Windows updates).

If you want to see all your Windows 8 settings in one "Control Panel" style view, there is a real simple way to achieve this called the GodMode (windows 7 had a similar trick).  Simply right click anywhere on your desktop or in windows explorer, create a new folder.  Give it the following name:

All Settings .{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

Now, when you double click that "folder" you are presented with the all settings view.  You can make a shortcut to this folder and pin it to Start or to the Taskbar as desired.

REX Game Studios released REX Latitude on 11-22-12 as promised.  In this article I'll go over the prerequisites, the install and usage and thoughts on the new add-on for the venerable Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D.  Check out our video at the end of the article for a brief overview of the Latitude interface as well.  Latitude is a great way to log your flight characteristics and learn from those results and compare yourself to other pilots in an "online Career" if you choose to upload your stats.

If you have kids and you have modern gadgets such as iOS and Android tablets and phones, then you know how kids love to play games such as Angry Birds on these devices.  However, like most parents you are probably a little apprehensive about handing over your gadgets to your kids and walking away due to the lack of default parental controls.  This is where a device like the Nabi 2 really shines, as it has a kid-safe interface which you as a parent have full control over.  For the price of around $199 its very competitive and it gives you the best of both an "adult" tablet and a kid-safe interface for your children to use.
