Its weird because I remember the bar being on top, but haven't really noticed the change until you mentioned it lol.

New coolers were just announced by LEPA. Thoughts? I'm curious if the "U-shaped airflow" can actually do anything significant.

I really like the look of it, the white on could go nicely with what I have.

New Seiki 4K desktop monitors (not the televisions) actually look really, really promising. Just that the "Pro" labelling scares me as it'll probably cost an arm and a leg.

I can't believe how much is being spent in marketing/advertising 4k.  Watching the world cup I noticed sony had 4k ads running on the panels along the field most of 2 games.  

 

I guess it's a lot like spending a ton of money into advertising and manufacturing electric cars as being "green" rather then investing in better storage technology and changing the mostly coal and natural gas generated electricity to something that is actually renewable.  It'd make sense to give 4k actual application past us using monitors.  Tv broadcasts = 1080p at best Movie rentals = 1080p Hell what resolution are most films even shot in at this point?

I am not knowledgeable enough to do the calculations, but you would be surprised how much detail you can catch with film.  Expect a 4k Starwars 'remaster' haha

 

I really hope 4k takes off, that way ISPs will pick up the pace in the US.  3D was obviously a fail >.>

I'm sure there is more detail I'm just saying it seems a lot more productive to start actually shooting and offering films or broadcasts in 4k before you advertise a 4k TV when it has absolutely no market.  For computers it kind of makes sense here and now but consoles don't support 4k, neither do movies or broadcasts, what reason does anyone have to buy a 4k tv?

Even if it does work, it seems like it would only really disrupt airflow through the fins.

Electric cars aren't necessarily "zero emissions" or "green" either way. Coal, etc. are still used to make the electricity to power the vehicle.

That's exactly what I was saying... instead of advertising electric cars as green let's make them green.  Instead of advertising 4k Tvs when there is no market for them, let's make a market for them.

Its a two way street.  Why should independent film makers, cable tv, etc work in 4k if there is nobody with 4k televisions.

Companies are out to make money.  If it just so happens that consumers want a more immersive experience or a green environment so be it.  There has to be demand!

 

 

Lets say you have a computer store, and you want to add extra services.  You have this idea to start a delivery/home repair service as a means to generate extra revenue.  This new service requires employees, vans, etc.  You as a sole owner would be taking a large risk, as you barely cover your expenses as it is.  You decide to get a feel for the market, and research how local users have their computers repaired.  You find that that most homes in your area have replaced computers with tablets, and use a remote service for assistance.

 

Are you even going to bother? 

 

Not the best example I know, but companies do not big because they made products consumers never wanted.

Demand, that's the word I was looking for.  That makes sense... I've never really been interested in economics/business.

I just now got some open headphones. The realization on how loud my computer actually is hit me.

If you can return you should >.>
The ATH-A900x is your best bet as they are ~$100 refurbished.  Just keep your eyes peeled ;)

Last refurbished unit I bought had new earpads, and not a trace of usage.

 

They are definitely better than the K550 (~$230) imo.

A steal at this price, should give it a read ;)

Uhhh Yazen, sorry to rain on your recommendation parade, but I didn't get K550s.
