Dennis Richie would be Yoda, Stallman would be Obi Wan, Linus would be Luke.

If so, who's this elegant fellow?


Ron Jeremy?

I think you got it exactly right.

Also:
Ritchie = never married
Stallman = never married
Torvalds = married with 3 kids (but as usual, he's an outlier)

I still have a K&R Second Edition in a box in my garage. C includes everything important that you really need - programming has gone downhill from there.

Actually, out of those guys, Torvalds is probably the most Luke of the bunch. Good catch!

 

 

 

 

And with weapons drawn

Ken Thompson would be Qui Gon Jinn.

So who's going to be Anakin? Mind you I said Anakin, not Darth Vader.

Wow I have been wondering how long these references could go on and it seems like the answer is 'indefinitely'...

 

Congratulations Arly on your channel btw, now when can I book you in for a hangout eh eh?

 

Anyway imma let you finish, but I just wanted to turn in a bit of an initial written report: the Beats Studio 2013 is a good headphone. It's not mind-blowingly good, but it's definitely well executed. It seems like they might have taken something out of their swimming pools of cash and actually invested in some R&D. It's still an aggressive, bombastic kind of headphone that's not going to please anyone who wants neutral bass, but it's actually punchy instead of flabby. Just about the worst aspect is the hiss of the active noise cancelling and the unfortunate inability of the headphone to function without it.

 

I am actually sort of surprised, and a little annoyed that I could not get the matte black model on sale because I would probably keep them around with that colour variation. I have a very flashy red pair which looks cool but probably a little too brash for my overwhelmingly monochrome wardrobe.

 

I am always always looking for a good circumaural headphone that is comfortable, sounds good and folds up, and the Beats Studio is probably the most ideal candidate I've found so far. I actually feel nervous saying this because I feel like a rabble of Head Fi cognoscenti is going to kerb stomp me to death.

 

It's sort of absurd that I might have to feel defensive about praising a headphone, but this is a wonderful world where people follow technology brands and sports teams instead of invading other territories and slaughtering the women and children. Most of the time.

It's pretty silly, isn't it?

 

You keep listening to your beats, and be happy. I'm so done with the headphone snobism on head-fi.. Not only is it pathetic, childish and petty, but it's also rather tasteless and closed minded. If it sounds good to you, then it sounds good to you, and that's the end of story. Just smile to yourself when haters go "waah waah waah, you can have soooo much better headphones for soooo much less money and your just a noob if you think they sound good" (note my spelling on "your/you're").

Good one you. Sincerely. And to be honest, I find the previous Beats Studio ain't too bad. Sure, the bass is flabby, but really the day that I found out that one of my friends have one (our culture really ain't too big on spending big), I just have to try it, and was bracing for the worst. Cue confusion from my part. I mean, yeah you can probably get better basshead cans at the same price, but thanks to the Beats, there's now more choice in that price bracket. Rather than the 4 or 5 to choose from then, now you we have 14 to 15, even though with the same crap-to-good enough ratio. That just means there's more good enough. Now I'm curious for you to get the previous version and compare it. Also against the Vmoda M100.
Also, get this: I dug out an old Kensington Orbit trackball mouse. Too bad that it has no scroll wheel, because I kind of like it. Also too bad that it has mouse acceleration, since I'm too used to without it using my gaming mouse. Maybe I should get a Logitech trackball since at least has its own proprietary software to switch off mouse acceleration.

Maybe we should all get in on the new Beats Studios and form up our own mafia. I mean, purrin was the original Beats don in HF, so he should be reinstated too.

Who would have thought it?  Beats making headphones with half decent bass.  The only beats I ever heard were the Pros, and for a basshead hadphone the bass was awful, mids and highs were OK but had a metallic sound and were not very extended.  I actually find a lot of headphones sound metallic - strangely mostly the ones with metal driver baffles.

 

I think people need something to bash - it makes us feel special.  Otherwise we are just filth like the rest of them.  :biggrin: i joke of course but it's kinda true...

In the end, most that use their headphone collection as epeen status is the same as Joe Average with a Beats Studios flaunting his bass-peen to his peers.
