Interesting. Problem being is that you can't expect that extra processing power to be available to use in the first place. And people might be rather upset that the console without Kinect would get extra FPS/graphical details because they have the power to spare.
This is what I'm wondering. What a middle finger it would be to the first adopters to end up having a less powerful console than everyone who was smart enough to wait.

Yeah. Noones  perfect , but they certainly screwed up and now are painted into a corner . I remember reading that Microsoft said this impossible. Numerous times.

The Xbox One is definitely better than the piece of garbage Xbox360.  I plan on buying the PS4  but I could possibly buy the Xbox One a few years later.  Definitely a much better system I must say.  I still don't understand why people bought the Xbox360 with it's Red Ring of Death, crapy controllers that take batteries, no Blu-ray player, poor graphics, and you have to pay money to play on line!  The Xbox One is definitely a step in the right direction for Microsoft.

doesn't seem too impressive, and half of them have already been announced or expected.

I'm real disappointed in this console generation.  I was ready to drop $400-$500 on a new console.  Something I never do.  I usually wait 2-3 years, because at the time I couldn't afford it.  This year, I was ready, and there's absolutely nothing to play.  Anything I want to play can be played on the PC.  The only thing I'm missing is MLB The Show 2014.  I held off during Christmas.  I thought maybe by June I'd get it.  Nope, still nothing.  I think both companies failed on their game lineups.  Not enough exclusive content as well. 

I'm assuming uncharted 4 will be PS4 only?

Good assumption, which remember what it means when you assume..also, this seems on par for me for a consoles first 6 months...

I've been with Hulu Plus about a year and a half now and couldn't imagine not having it. They have most of the current TV shows (Arrow, The 100, The Following, Vampire Diaries, Believe, Late Night, WWE Monday Raw and Friday Night Smackdown, etc.) but also a huge back catalog of older TV shows such as Lost and The Tudors.

Granted all those older TV shows may be available to free users as well, being able to watch most of my favorite TV shows the next day versus having to wait a year for them to hit Netflix made me choose Hulu Plus over Netflix. (I was with Netflix until they lost the Starz contract.)

Hulu Plus has some movies also, but nothing in the terms that Netflix carries.  Hulu is good for TV, Netflix is good for movies.
Even if you have both of them it's still a hell of a lot cheaper than DirecTV. I bailed on DirecTV over 2 years ago and haven't looked back.


That's the exact same situation we are looking at... Keep internet, already have netflix which we use way more than our cable, ditch cable, add hulu plus . It seems like a big step...oh, first world problems!

Ha, you guys would go nuts if you had to sleep where I do. Recently moved into a much smaller apartment than I had for quite awhile and had to put my 2 computer desks in the bedroom. It's quite a light show, with the modem, router, NAS, and various standby lights. The modem is the worse since it always has flashing lights going. Unless I tossing and turning it doesn't usually bother me. If it does, I arrange an office chair to block my direct eye site at the modem, but it still does a good job lighting up the wall next to it.

Trippy! Tongue

Yes but they gave you 6 what instead of 2 what?
if I had to guess, GB/month?  

I do like the jokes spawned from the question though.  maybe it's donuts.

Sorry for the tease then slow response. They bumped it up from 2 gb to 6 for the same price. They said they had a offer going on. That's all I know. We had unlimited also, never came close to 2
Gb even. We use wifi ALOT.

I just got my new Talon from Falcon Northwest about a month ago and I'm very happy with it. It's my second Falcon NW computer, I got my first one, a Mach V, in early 2003 and used it till 2011, although I did have to add more RAM and upgrade the video card. It ran without a problem, I just had to finally replace it because the processor just wasn't able to handle anything modern. After that I got a Hewlett Packard office computer with a entry level video card, but that was a mistake, so that's why I got the Talon.

Yup, it's expensive, but then I figure I'm worth it icon_biggrin. The nice thing about Falcon NW, the computers come with NO crapware, they are tested before they are shipped and the quality, at least in the two I've owned, is top notch. They come with a leather binder thing with all the the extra cables, manuals and disks that came with the individual components:




That little red thing on the right in the last photo is the recovery USB. Just before it's shipped, they image the OS drive and put it on a thumb drive, so if you need or just want to get things back to the original state they came in, just plug her in and follow the directions.

The computer itself it pretty modest, I don't go for painted cases and the like:



I haven't had to use Falcon NW support so far, but on my first computer I did have some questions. They have their own support guys, right at their location, and what's nice when I called was I got a machine, left my number and question, and they called me back pretty quickly on their own dime and the guy I talked to actually knew his stuff. That was in 2003 but they say they still supply support that way.

Let me know if you have any other questions about Falcon or my Talon.




If money isn't a question. That's the best you can buy. Period. I had fnw years ago and the product and the company are simply outstanding.

As far as I know, zero chance of this happening. You have to pay an unsubsidized price for a new phone or give up the unlimited data.

Yup, I just went through the exact same process about 4 months ago with Verizon.  I actually held onto my phone for about two years as things slowly fell apart on it (volume control stopped working, etc.) because I didn't want to lose that unlimited plan.  Finally the charge port on it stopped working and I had no choice.  When getting the new phone, they told me it wasn't possible to keep my unlimited data plan.




Same here. Exactly. They did give me 6 instead of 2 for my troubles. They said they had some offer running for people in this situation. This was only about 2 months ago.
