Nexus 7 is like 200~270$ on my local craigslist LOL yeah no competition, it's the price of a freakin new one in stores.

@Magi
Man, Japanese and their crappy nicknaming abilities for non-Japanese names.
Not that Mo is not a nickname used for girls as well as guys but still.
I guess we've seen worse (e.g. girl name shortened into a guy name).

I'd buy myself one first :P. But they're posted with no pictures usually and there's like one a month hasn't been a recent one.

It doesn't build credit and will sometimes even have fees on it. For a person of my age, it is illegal to hold "debt" and thus it must be a credit card where my mother is co signed to it with me as an authorized user.

No?
I have a bank account, and my debit card is linked to my bank account. Whenever I pay something using my debit card, or withdraw money from an ATM, the money is withdrawn from my bank account. It's as simple as that.
I only use cash to pay other people, always at stores I use debit card. When buying stuff online from the Netherlands too, otherwise I use Paypal, which is linked to my bank account as well.

ONLY when I order from stupid Amazon, or stupid Mouser, do I have to use my parents' credit card. Oh, and also the Android Play Store.
Why on earth won't they accept Paypal or debit card? To a European's mind it just doesn't make any sense.

Underage kids are allowed to have debit cards I don't know where you're getting your information from... it makes more sense for an underage kid to have a debit card seeing as a lot of banks offer free overdraft protection where your card is just rejected instead of overdrafting. You do realize credit cards you basically are spending money that isn't yours and you pay that off at the end of each month or whenever you feel like it in the month right..?

This

I actually got my first debit card when I was 11 or 12. It's more convenient, since my parents could transfer allowance automatically.

I still don't understand why you'd want a credit card though, I've seen interest fees and monthly fees get extremely high on credit cards compared to debit cards...
My debit card is through Chase bank and has absolutely NO fees, monthly, or per transaction.

I'd want a credit card... So that I can pay stuff from stupid American sites.

Maybe it also has to do with the fact that I have my homework done at least an hour (usually two) before going to bed, and I only use the middle of my bed... I don't have as much trouble going to sleep as I used to due to me being able to take classes later in the morning.

Almost all of my homework is written by hand using pen and paper. I don't see how that could work on a bed like you describe it.

Nice, I have to get up at 7AM on all days except Tuesdays this block. (one block = 1/2 semester) I hate getting up early in the morning.

Weird recipe. Pound cake with about half of the weight just red bean paste.

We'll see how it turns out.

I think you're confusing a debit card with them normal keycards you use to withdraw from an ATM.

 

A debit card is linked to the VISA/Mastercard network, and can be used in place of a credit card for purchases online. And as the name implies, they just take up money from your bank account for purchases, rather than being on credit. They aren't the same as the normal cards you use to withdraw funds from your normal bank account.

 

You have to be 18 or over to get a debit card (but some banks let you get permission from parents if you aren't an adult), they're practically free, so you should check up on your bank to get them ASAP.

 

Anyway, credit cards are good too because they give reward points, benefits, and are more secure, as you can do chargebacks and what not. But it's easy to fall into a trap and overspend, and interest tends to be very high (mines something like 17%).

 

I used my credit card to book the flights+hotel to Japan for the whole group, and I think I got $200 or $300 worth of points back on it. That's pretty swish.

I got the Oblanc headphones for review just now.

 

 

700

 

For $50 these are in the price range of the HARX700. And they sound similar. Pulled back vocals. A bit cardboardy. But for $50 they do fit in the recommended headphones of that price. I believe that at sub $50, earbuds and IEM's produce better sound than headphones now after trying many and many of these budget. The HARX700 have nothing against an EQ'd MH1C be it for studio, sound, production or whatever.

 

The bass on these can be quite boomy on some songs but close to none on others. I guess it's a good thing where songs that don't need it don't get a luscious amount and rap songs that may do get a huge load. Problem is that the clamp isn't enough so the bass vibrates around the bottom. Holding the headphones in place produce a nice deep bass though.

 

If I can get a HARX700 back to test against these that would be cool but I probably can't.

Bowei, moving up the ranks from normal Headfier w/ overinflated post count to compensate for something to 'mediocre reviewer w/ over-inflated post count to compensate for something'.

Also, to anybody into League, S3 seems to have a lot of changes being made. Just looking how they're redoing the items is already exciting (despite that I don't even dream to play ranked or something like that.).
