In our testing, it picked up both myself and Alex, even though he was pretty far away from the mic. This really is a powerful mic if you are doing field recording,a s it almost replaces a shotgun mic or a dead cat setup.RATING: 4/5 WHAT DiceMasters: Age of UltronWHO WizKidsWHERE: http://wizkids.com/dicemasters/marvel-dice-masters-age-of-ultron/ Marvel Dice Masters: Age of Ultron Dice Building Game on Amazon (Affiliate Link)WHY: This game is a lot of fun.

Press Release: NeweggBusiness Launches New Business-class PCs
In a press release today, computer store giant, newegg.com has announced they are stepping into the enterprise IT game, with NeweggBuisness! Their first contender into the areana, the ABS N-Series, is a fierce one indeed. The base model, starting at US$649 is an easy comparison to everything Dell can offer at that price point, raising the game by introducing a key element: default SSD! Is this going to cause companies who have held the Enterprise title for so long to finally step up their game? Only time will tell. The ABS begins shipping later this month.OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: NeweggBusiness Launches New Business-class PCs New Products Serve Critical Needs of Business Customers, Strengthen Company’s Commitment to the SMB Segment May 13, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA – NeweggBusiness, a wholly owned subsidiary of Newegg North America Inc. and a leader in business e-commerce, today announced its line of ABS N Series desktop PCs. “NeweggBusiness is squarely focused on serving SMB and education customers.
