    which headphone for minibox-e+?

    Have you allready bought the minibox? In my opinion buying a headphone to match an amp is not the way to go, should have been the other way around. The HD650 and the grados you mentioned have such different sound signatures that no amp will make you appreciate the final sound, if from the...

    Is this guy legit?

    If writing speed and lifetime warranty is not a priority then get the fake memory cards from ebay. I use to buy a bunch of sony memory sticks and SD cards, they were fake ones from sandisks. Never had a problem with any of them. I mean these are not sophisticated hardware, I bet the fake ones...

    2009 FIFA Confederation Cup

    As mentioned before, It isn't by acccident that only 7 nations have ever won the cup. I do not doubt the major teams motivation by bringing their best player and by fielding them. What I am saying is that a WC preparation for the major teams has nothing to do with a confederations cup one. You...

    2009 FIFA Confederation Cup

    Not to minimize the US team achievements and I do think they have improved but did any of the major teams took the confedarations cup seriously? I am sure the players took it seriously while playing the actual match but you win a competition by preparing a team months ahead which I believe none...

    Xbox 360- The Disc Drive....

    On pure technical aspects the PS3 is way ahead of Xbox 360 and I am not even considering the superior processing power. The noise and heat alone annoys me, add the fact that the PS3 is one of the best bluray players in it's price range and you have an amazing piece of hardware. As a gaming...

    computer upgrade advice

    Dude, it seems to me you are not upgrading but getting a whole new system. You have been asking questions about processor, mobo, graphics card and a power supply. I also assume that you will be getting some memory as well. Why don't you tell us what your current system is and how much you...

    Blu-ray movie discussion thread (pics added - page 1 & 7)

    Watched 300 on my PS3 recently, imagewise maybe the most spectacular I have seen on bluray. Other than that I am not the biggest fan of the movie. Can you guys tell me what bluray player you are using? I know the PS3 is a bargain compared to other similar priced players. Another advantage is...

    Microsoft buries ten grand on the internet

    Opera all the way! The original inventor of multi tabs and so many other useful browser functions that everyone else copied. A few years back opera was so much more advanced than firefox (let's not even talk about IE) but they have caught up. Firefox is certainly more customable but opera is...

    Desktop or Laptop? Any recommendations??

    If you are planning to spend lots of hours in front of the screen be it for working (docs, web browsing, audio/video editing) or entertainment (watching videos, games), nothing beats the comfort of working on a 22"-24" screen. Your eyes are less tired and you are definitely more productive when...

    Premature balding...

    I don't think that there is any medication or therapy that really works. Look at prince william, he is nowhere near thirty, has unlimited funds for any therapy and still he is going bald. Implants would be the only alternative I suppose.

    As much I love and enjoy fresh chocolate, nothing beats the occasional Snickers bar when you are hungry. On really busy days, 2 Snickers bars and a yughort drink is all I need for the whole day.

    If you go to Switzerland these are in my opinion the best chocolate bars available. They cost around $5-6 for 100g, since I don't eat chocolate by the kg anyways I find the price very decent. They are fresh, daily made bars and it does make a big difference. Storing them for a week really...

    Would Evander Holyfield, Mike Tyson, George Foreman, Ali, ... annihilate the best UFC fighters of all time?

    It depends, I will put my money on power punchers like Tyson and Foreman in their best form. If you have seen their matches these kind of heavy weight boxers only need one decent punch to stun their opponents and follow up a KO. I don't see a UFC fighter that can withstand a half decent punch...

    HP Pavilion zt3000, googled it and that's a 6.5 pounder from 2003 right? Seriously you should just sell it on ebay for $50-100 and get a sub $400 netbook. She will love the small size and under 2.5 pounds weight. It will fit in her handbag and you can get one in pink if she wishes. Honestly...
