Actually, I was asking you to elaborate. Can you please do that for me? It will certainly add to this discussion!

Now this added to the discussion. You should ensure that you have the latest version of Android available for your phone. If you ever are in doubt, YouTube and the official website for your phone will always help.

I see you're using Cyborg RAT. Is it good? I've always wanted to try before I buy but it's not available in my country. So, I'm just scared I might not like it if I ordered online.

K a z e, aren't you annoyed by your mouse cable when gaming? It seems like you kinda have to pull the mouse back every time move it forward to get the cable back on the table. Haha. I have this problem and either looking for a wireless mouse or a mouse cable holder. :P

I have no problem with the green carpet. My walls are green too...I don't even like green and I've been meaning to repaint it but don't care that much to do it.

That's a Logitec G9x btw.

The way my tower is placed i have to use the whole cord and it's kind of annoying. I need to place my tower somewhere closer or get an extension but other than that it isn't really a problem. I don't have that much space for a mouse bungee either..

Got a 60GB OCZ Vertex 3 SSD for my laptop.
Though my laptop only has a SATA II interface, since it's pretty old, but I can keep the SSD for a future pc/laptop with a SATA III interface
The laptop is much faster now

they just bought a majority stake in beats and some other social music service to increase their service repertoire, it's not a deal breaker for me

Good stuff about the One X is the camera and the processor. The screen is not bad at all, and I like it better than Samsung's because of less saturation, and yeah loving the size.

I heard that the One V uses PenTile for its screen though so buyer beware if you're into that controversy bullshit, but honestly I think it's best to just see for yourself if you like it or not.

I just bought this mostly due to one of my coworkers having it and me falling in love with it.



And this because I always seem to need to charge my iPhone at like the worst possible moments and its super helpful.

Lol, yea it is an awful video but I thought I would post it any how. I work at a theatre and it is nice to have a flashlight that can be big and bright and then get small and zoom in. It can go probably about 40' up in the air when it is focused and glow the area as if it were only 10 feet away and it is small enough that you do not notice it in your pocket. Which is nice because I sometime hate carrying around my M20 warrior from Olight because it is big and can't focus but it's hella bright. But my switch or something on my m20 is going bad so I have to fix that.

Fridge raid operation failed, abort mission, RETREAT!

But seriously, use those in semi-wide open area, not a cluttered kitchen.

Currently saving up money for an LCD monitor and likely PS3 and will buy them as soon as I got settled in my university at fall.

if it's solely for PS3 the official Sony PS3 one is pretty decent with wireless and simulated surround sound

otherwise if you want cross platform go hunt for a pair of turtlebeach or something like that

I think they buy them more for the fake surround sound to hear footsteps more than anything else. lol.

Although there are some headsets that actually have more than 1 speaker in their cups.

Yea neither would I. I have seen some make off of Turtle Beach stuff that's called Komodo I think for like 10 bucks less and I was like are you serious? Apparently they are waaaay worse than turtle beach so spend the 10 bucks for the good stuff.

Acer Aspire One ZG5

My parent brought it for my pre-u education. Not what I expected and I'm not sure it will be comfortable or not to type a lengthy Japanese paragraph on it as I'm expecting a Thinkpad instead.
