I have to agree with the previous comments, the MDR-V6 are a bargain and being almost identical to the MDR-7506. I been using them for years and liked them enough I bought a second pair when they were on sale. In the past year they have been on sale for about $40 (Amazon).
The only down side is over time the ear cushion lining will break down and you'll need to replace them. Sony does offer replacements, but I found also you can use Beyerdynamic EDT 250 Velour padded ear cushions also compatible if you wish to have a different fabric.
Yes there has been rumors of a refresh and do consider it is almost now a year old, which makes it more plausible.
Here is one of the rumors :
I hope the rumors of Babel project are true, being I live out of gTalk daily.
Yes, 64bit and OpenGL support for Windows was originally introduced in version CS4. I recommend you test out a 30 day trial version ( http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=photoshop ) to make sure your happy before putting down the investment, with that said expect an announcement of new product release (CS7?) soon.
Been using Anker Astro3e 10000mAh and being able recharge my phone while using it anywhere at any time has been a big help, more so when using apps that are GPS/Data demanding while away from an electric outlet. The only down fault it takes significantly longer when it comes time to recharge these large batteries.
Last year getting the bumper was impossible when I ordered my phone. So I ordered one of these for each Nexus4, Soft TPU Gel case $2.88 U.S. (free shipping) direct from China. >> http://r.ebay.com/McN7d8
After having it for a while I've grown to like it especially for the price, the sides have some grip which works with gloves in the winter and being soft it doesn't slide around on the table.
Will and Gina, Congratulations!
Normally I am playing on the PC/Console, but something not out of the ordinary happened and stepped away from desk. Been
playing grinding in Ingress and it has been sucking all my free time lately. It's been interesting and fun working out new strategies and heading out into the cold at odd hours to get a lead on the other faction and players. Between playing this augmented reality game and meeting up with local faction(guild) members for group activities, it has really introduced me to lot of new people and places. I find it currently one of the most meaningful gaming experience in a long time due to the strong team social connection, on a funny note suddenly every member is using Google+ none stop for the first time.
That said last weekend with the cold wet fog, I took some time off playing to catch up on much needed rest and played Vanquish while refreshing the Ingress Intel map in the background with a watchful eye.
@gpbmike: You are correct, however the link on the front of the group is still relevant and often updated > The Big List of 3rd Party DRM on Steam ( http://steamdrm.flibitijibibo.com ).
If you happen to be on Steam and are against restrictive 3rd party DRM, I would suggest joining the NoDRM Group. They do keep an updated and detailed list on which games to avoid and how they are affected.
"Windows 8 usage uptake has slipped behind Vista’s in the same point in its release. Windows 8 online usage share is around 1.6% of all Windows PC’s which is less than the 2.2% share that Windows Vista commanded at the same two month mark after release."
For now all Microsoft can do is run damage control and work PR overtime, as they deal with
MS Bob Modern UI (Metro). Sure some love it, but not as many that despise it judging by the reactions on reddit who make purchasing decisions beyond simple consumers computing and their toys. Microsoft failed to remember the old saying one in the hand is worth two in the bush, while they ignored demands of the enterprise market.
Intention is not to troll(all my PC's run Nvidia GPUs), but to bring light on the press release. For now I see this as a paper launch which is something Nvidia has always been good at hyping products that haven't shipped, especially in their mobile Tegra products. Then there is software(not including streaming from Steam), developers that tend to target the lowest common denominator which right now for android is smart phone/tablets and being limited to touch UI's. So I would guess unique must have software is out of the question.
It leaves me to wonder by the time Tegra4 device sees the light of day, will we care?
I have to agree this THQ bundle is beyond a good value, if it wasn't for the past humble bundle & THQ pack offered on Amazon last week I would be all over it. I would be curious how other's feel if the sale being so close to the previous one in November, does it cause some less excitement or less interest in the current promotions? In perspective while it's a nice problem to have, but at what point do we hit that wall of limited time to allocate for games, as apposed to the back log building up in your pile of shame of unplayed titles.
Simple unless it's a MMORPG/Online only title, I file this issue under the same category as restrictive DRM (limited installs etc). I vote with my wallet, time and don't buy/play it. Do I miss out on some great games? Maybe, but I don't stress over it since leisure time is limited and I always have someone else willing to offer me a great game to play with out jumping threw hoops.
Short answer: #Boycott
I would once have never have agreed to a pricey rice cooker however that all changed 10 years ago when I was told I didn't have a choice, now I swear by them. Really in all regards $160 is on the low end as far as rice cookers is concerned, but good enough for most us.
What is most amazing is that the phone I carry in my pocket is more powerful than the computer that got me through college.
This^ 10 fold.
Flashback; ah yes memories.
I see it was rocking an Aureal A3D sound card, one my most missed techs from that period.
The only way for cell phone rates to go down is for people to switch to buying their phones up front.
This is exactly what needs to happen. Not just for the cost of service, but also for cost of hardware when the consumer begins to see the true cost of subsidization and manufactures begin to compete.
Personally this is exactly what I've done, closed a AT&T family plan after 10+ years of being with them and jumped on to T-mobile value plans (unsubsidized) which is great for someone like my self who doesn't upgrade hardware until needed.
