The S5 have a nice plastic back, but could do without the fake metal trims. Judy stuff real metal in.

It depends from phone to phone. If it's a phone with a curved back like the HTC Butterfly or One M7/M8, the battery is sandwiched between two logic boards, in which case an internal battery has a clear advantage. But if it's a phone with uniform thickness, like the iPhones, the batteries have more or less the same rectangular form factor as a removable one. Heck, I'd even say it is user replaceable in the 4/S, since the battery is the first thing to come out after the back.

Did you know that Steve Blum voiced TOM, the robotic host of Toonami?

 

Guess which of these have the same English voice actor. =D

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 90CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 94

The answer to this was pretty much implied :rolleyes:

Like a camera grip though, I like the added weight since it feels more stable in my hand. Sometimes I attach the C5/C5D to my iPhone since it's easier for me to hold, especially for just viewing the screen. Le pics (Click to show)



^ you can't even see the C5...but I'm gripping onto the C5 with my palm and using the tips of my fingers just as bumper guards for the iPhone in my hand to prevent it from slipping. It's easier on my hand too since I don't have to grip the phone itself and the extra weight does all the hard work needed to keep it in my hand.

After holding the 5/5C/5S in my hand, I found it absurdly light for my tastes and I felt as though I would easily drop it one day. And I ain't going to buy a $50 mega-thick case for it just to add weight/protection.
It's not really a plus no matter what if there's a downside. XD
But yeah, a removable battery is nice for long periods of "away from wall outlet" time, unless you carry around a portable charger.

The 4S is actually a whopping 9 grams heavier than the S4! 

 

The 5C does feel surprisingly heavy for a plastic phone of its size, thanks to the steel frame inside. It's easily more durable than the 5/S.

 

Both internal and removable batteries have their own upsides and downsides, just like dubs vs. subs!

That's not too wild of a guess. It's the main reason why there weren't many 3rd party Lightning accessories at the time of release.

Yeah, S1 did it better than S2 though; it felt more forced in the second season. The OVAs were OK.

Yeah, dubs allow you to kinda watch it uninterrupted, unless it's a bad dub. Subs usually translate the dialog with a bit of interpretation on the subber's side, so original meaning may be lost, and stuff like that. It also depends on the setting of the anime; if it's a SoL, then Japanese is almost always the better option, and if it's an action anime with a Western setting, then English is almost always the preferred choice. Stuff like that.

Nooooooooo I can't buy this single from the Japanese iTunes store. Curse you Steve Jobs!

 

 

Oh well, I'll just have to stick with YouTube quality, I've given her plenty of money already so it's totally fine. Right guys?

When the English dubs butcher the pronunciation of names, I get really tired of them. Su-zu-MEE-ah (English dub) instead of Su-ZU-mee-ah for example really bugged the heck out of me and I prefer subs in that case.

 

I think it's because the VAs often don't watch through the original anime; they just read their lines without a deeper understanding.

I was expecting something more jumpy...but this was a poignant piece! (It's on repeat at the moment.)

 

I can't stand how bad most songs sound on YouTube. (Heck, iTunes downloads are atrocious enough.) I use a Firefox plugin to download YouTube videos I like and have found that sometimes the video/sound quality is a little better that way.

I ordered some replacement parts for the AKG K240 Monitor, but there's a vendor in the USA who has the parts I need, and at 50% off compared to AVshop. Do you know if you can cancel an order just placed?
To answer my question, yes, you can cancel your order. Yahoo watashi wa katta ze! : )

Speaking of bad dubs, the new dub of Rurouni Kenshin on Crackle is so god-awful that I'm watching it just to get a good laugh.

What?! How/why?

 

Here's a link to info on that single. Things like this are often released soon after on full-length albums in CD quality.

The magic of the Great FireWall of China. XD

Youku, Baidu, and Renren are the alternatives respectively.

That was my first guess. I just didn't realize EveTan lived there.

Good thing head-fi and anime streaming sites aren't blocked. Or else I'd never survive this month long vacation :>
