The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2

    I have to admit that the iPhone's audio quality is impressing me more and more.

    And how is this over where you live? (Truly interested to know)
    Down here we don't really live on campus (mostly athletes I think), but we rent apartments and houses near the University campus.

    In major cities in Canada most people go to university/college locally and commute from home, whereas I hear that most Americans go out of state.

    While there is student housing available the majority of students live in the suburbs and commute to the universities.
     
    This is also why many students still live at home, like for instance myself!

    I would not say most Americans go out of state. Some do, some don't. At many state universities & colleges, tuition for out of state residents is much higher than for in-state residents. So, you stay in-state to get the lower cost. In California, most students are in on-campus housing only their first year. Then you make friends and find an apartment for the next years. Dorm living was fun - but it's not for everyone. I can tell you that even 30 years later, I am in touch with several people that I met in that 1 year in on-campus housing.

    While my musical horizon didn't expand as eccentric as hers, this is true for me too. Hell, I think I money-pinch more after graduating... Which makes sense though.

    This is also true for other media such as anime :p

    After an extremely terrible week, I just finished a very loose mini-review of the MOE Audio SS01 (it's the JVC FXT90, but different).
     
    It's probably the most careless review I've written in a while, but one of the most satisfying as well:

    Got a loaner S-EM6 for a while. I agree on your take Muppet, they present things in a non aggressive yet musical and detailed way. Not sure they are as good as the SE5 to my ears, but still good.

    Anyone a fan of Jose James? I like his music, but he seems to be better live (something about his sonorous voice fits the live environment better than the recording booth, where it becomes too dense and thick, and lacking dynamic dimension), so I listen to his stuff on YouTube more than CD...

    So you're implying the SS01 is better than the FXT90? Interesting. It seems when I have the money, I should buy this and do a comparison. Should be fun, since I still think the JVC is pretty good.

    You want to just try it out? Send me a PM and I'll shoot it over to you some time. I didn't get to compare it directly, but I don't remember the FXT90 impressing me as much as the SS01, and my standards have risen since then as well.

    The creator that abandoned his thread thinks this month's avatar is worth not gagaing over anime. I should link to a local diabetes research and support organization too..

    Well, I got my Nexus 5. It's a great phone but I realise now that a 5 inch phone really demands two handed use. Not sure if I'm so keen on that...

    Which is why I'm targeting the iPhone 6S (though my Nexus One might not survive that much longer).
