    @norman: If you hire my wife and I to photograph your wedding, you'll be able to see it in action. ;)

    @mclaren777: that one looks serious--a little big for me!

  • pokeman92 mentioned you in Tested In-Depth: Apple 12-Inch MacBook (2015)

    @norman: haha, I don't feel nearly as bad now. You know how it goes though, you open a bunch of stuff, go off to do something else, then just keep opening more and more tabs until you realize you can't even see the titles on the tabs anymore xD. It's far too easy to have too many tabs open these days, even on a 3 year old sandy bridge desktop like mine it just doesn't slow down like browsers used to.

    @pokeman92: sorry, I meant 9 windows, with about 26 tabs. Still not like your 50 though!

    @ATGATT: i've been eyeing that laptop for testing for a while now. Been trying to get a hold of one from Dell for review. Next up on my list for testing is the Asus, but that's on the low end. Glad to hear you like the XPS 13 though!

  • norman commented on Testing: Samsung Galaxy S6 Smartphone

    @Artso: omg just saw this. it changes everything!

  • norman commented on Testing: Apple's 12-Inch MacBook (2015)

    @yui: not meaningful, no. The 1.2GHz model already uses the Intel Core M-5Y71 chip, which has the higher clocked GPU. In day to day use, bottlenecks are in graphics, not CPU.

  • yui mentioned you in Testing: Apple's 12-Inch MacBook (2015)

    @norman: thanks Norman, look forward to your review. Do you think the upgraded 1.3GHz is going to have any meaningful advantage over the base chip (for Photoshop etc)?

  • norman commented on Testing: Apple's 12-Inch MacBook (2015)

    @yui: no problem installing and running either. I use Adobe Creative Cloud, and had the newest versions of both on the MacBook.

    @mono: Yup, really missing the active display from the Moto X as well. I keep trying to "force wave" above the GS6 and get nothing.

    Accessibility -> Dexterity and interaction -> Gesture Wake up.

    You guys talking about this?

    @iservin: sorry, i mean in relation to lens. was thinking of DOF, which is affected by both.

  • FesteringNeon mentioned you in The Best Bluetooth Kit for Every Car

    @norman: I should have read your comment before ordering one. I also use a tape deck but find the bass to be too tinny. I don't expect full CD quality, but my pairing with a JLABS speaker had me contemplating the possibility of getting better sound (even though I know they aren't comparable deliveries of sound). Based on reviews it sounded like I should have a slightly better listening experience, but, will have to wait a couple days from now to find out. I'm interested see what your thoughts are also, so let me know!

    @SLUSHIE: FM vs. tape deck is what i'm interested in. I currently use a tape deck, and just got the FM one recommended here. Will be doing some testing and comparison on my drive down to Star Wars Celebration this weekend!
