Took delivery of this baby today : I'll say, it is absolutely true...you really won't appreciate a Grand Seiko until you hold one in your hands. I was a bit underwhelmed by its simplistic appearance at first upon opening the box. But looking closely, it's undeniable that the Grand Seiko is incredibly well finished. Polished surfaces are polished to an insane mirror gleam, and brushed surfaces are brushed very finely. I was surprised to find that even the...

I'm a firefox user, I love tabs, so I MUST have a mouse 3 hah. While I would normally consider anything that a customer service rep (or salesman for that matter) to be a bunch of BS, he may actually...

It might be a one off, but short and long of it: Got some oakley frames, actually very similar to the above. 'scrip's, of course. the UV whatever coating is chipping and corroding away like crazy. It's very annoying to try to see out of, because it actually ends up affecting my vision with all the spots. To add insult to injury, those frames broke where...
Quote: Originally Posted by no1likesme I just don't really like the way they look. IMO their designs all seem overly complex. One of the reasons I personally like Oakley frames over all others is because the designers simply seemed to know exactly where to cut the corners and curves. Oakley frames all have a very, very sharp look to them. Putting one on my face alone gives me a sharper, "smarter" appearance. All too many times, when trying on...
I'm a "squares only" kind of a guy too, and also an Oakley fan, so my suggestions would be: Chop Top 2.0, if you're looking for a thicker titanium frame with spring hinges. Thread 2.0 or Spoke 2.0, if you're looking for a thin, really lightweight frame. Why 3 / Why 4, or the Split Thread 2.0, if you're looking for super light rimless frames. I own the Chop Top, Thread, Spoke, (all in 2.0) and Why 3, and my personal daily wear is the Why 3, it's absolutely the...
Just completed Kurau Phantom Memory...drawing quality is not the greatest and the overall storyline is on the slow and mellow side, but still a touching anime with a bit of action and tense moments. It also has an absolutely beautiful soundtrack, probably my 2nd favorite after Steel Angel Kurumi's. This may not be a popular series so I'll sum it up. It involves mankind discovering an alternate energy source called Rynax, which turns out to actually be a spirit-like life...

I can't see that happening outright though. Perhaps the buy-out will be more of a subsidiary vs. a full acquisition/assimilation. Obviously Oakley is doing well and they are doing well despite their usual high cost. This is based on style/performance/build quality. Decrease any one of...

I would have preferred to have another pair of polarized sunglasses but this really put me off. I can also confirm that this is quite normal. I have three pairs of RX'ed Oakleys...
Logitech MX Revolution...once you get used to its flywheel it's hard to go back to conventional ratcheting mouse scroll wheels.
I've been a huge fan of Nokia's "gullwing" styled cellphones since getting the 6820 and refused to go to any other phone form factor. I refuse to buy anything but candy bar styled phones but also had to have a qwerty keyboard. The 6820 is a hard phone to beat to me, it's tiny, has excellent call quality and reception, battery life easily lasted a week, and never failed to draw looks of awe from onlookers whenever I flipped it open to reveal its keyboard. That was my phone...
