I have the sennheiser RS-170, they are wireless so I can walk around the apartment.
They use a wifi-signal so no background noise which some radio based wireless headphones have.

You can probably get better sound-quality for the money, but I the fact that they are wireless is worth it. And they're very comfortable smile

Alice in Chains - Don't Follow.  A beautiful, haunting song that is even more powerful considering what happened to the artist (Layne Staley died of a heroin OD).


Awesome song, another favorite (about/by layne staley)
Mad Season (Layne on vocals) - Wake up
"Slow suicide's no way to go"

Tom Waits - Martha

I always figured MS kept the Games on Demand prices artifically above market so as not to piss of the retail channel, especially the preowned game market where most of the profit is.

This, except the bit about pre-owned. I'm confident most publishers would rather sell one new/download copy at $5 than a used copy at any price.

I think Sony does the same thing. Full (new) games cost about $20-30 more in the PSStore than the retail price. (EU, in DKK)

I've only bought old games that were on sale or same price as retail, but I'm not gonna pay 30% more just because of convenience smile

All the ps3 games have been great so far.

10  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Squeezebox Alternatives on: March 04, 2011, 10:19:34 AM
I have a squeezebox duet (with remote) and run the server software on my qnap nas. It works great. You need to run logitechs own software on the server though.
I have the remote with display but I tend to use my phone more than the remote though since the software is a lot better (exists for iphone/ipad/ipod touch/android).

Personally I would get a Squeezebox Touch (if I was buying today) since it won't need any software on the server/pc, just a shared folder (correct me if I'm wrong) on a server/pc/usb.

Sonos is supposed to be the best there is, but it also costs about 3-4 times more than a squeezebox.
Never tried it, but everyone says it's a lot better than squeezebox, but too expensive for me smile

Quote from: JSL on October 05, 2010, 02:42:20 AM

I'm considering getting a PS3 as I sold my Wii recently. What I want to know is if it is possible to display the video through HDMI and have the sound go out through analog red/white connections? The speakers on my TV are fairly poor and currently I have a blu-ray player sending video through HDMI to the TV, but the sound goes directly to my sound system (iFi from Klipsch) that only takes red/white connections (sort of, only has line in that I split to accept red/white).
 

If you use hdmi for picture and analog for audio ("red,white") you might get some delay on the sound. But since it works on your BR player I guess it might work on the PS3 too. I've just never been able to get it to work properly.
I had mine hooked up with hdmi for the picture and used the analog for audio out to my amplifier (because it doesn't have hdmi). The sound was delayed a bit (enough to be annoying), I beleive it's because there's a slight delay on the analog signal.

Some hifi/tv experts can probably give a better explanation smile

Grooveshark is just like pandora, probably not as good as Pandora (been 5 years or something since we've been able to use it here, but I've heard Pandora is better smile ) but it does a decent job:

I've heard Spotify (http://www.spotify.com/) is good too, but I haven't tried it since it's not available here. But I think it's available in the UK.

I am assuming that the OP is talking about playing MP3s in his car vs playing CD's in his car. From that I would infer that perhaps he's playing tunes from his iPod.

I think most car stereos support USB sticks/mp3 cds these days. But you're still right smile

On my homestereo I can hear a big difference between a cbr 192kbps mp3 and the original cd. But if I rip at better quality, it's not noticable.
So go 192vbr+, anything below that is craptastic smile

Completed it last night.

Not sure it's spoiler tag worthy but just to be on the safe side smile
Spoiler for Hiden:
6hrs on Basic difficulty

The last few levels begang feeling lazy and cheap frown
It started off really good but about 3/4 way through it started feeling like the poor mans GOW

It's worth playing though, it IS a good game, but I wouldn't pay full price for it.

Pre-ordered it a while ago, so I'm getting that. If their release date is correct ofc slywink

I'm 99% sure the games are region-specific, so she wouldn't be able to just take her US games and play them on a system bough in Egypt.  

The games are region specific yes.

I'm quite sure you use a NTSC console on a PAL tv. I've heard of a lot of people who have imported their consoles because they usually take ages to be released in EU.

I could play NTSC games on my modded PAL-PS2 with no problems (same with movies).
So PAL tv's can definetly show a NTSC signal, and new tv's (LCD/Plasma) don't use different signals afaik, so I can't see why it should be a problem.

I really wish google made an 'iphone-killer' but from the reviews and impressions I've read it still seems the iPhone is the better phone.
My plan was to get an android phone (Nexus if is it was released in Europe fairly soon off course), but it seems I might be better off picking a iPhone for now.

Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody <- As with the above song, I've been forced to listen to it and sing a long to it waaay to often. After many years of drinking and singning along to this in highschool I just can't stand it. This was one of the "we put it on a few times a night and we HAVE to sing along each time"-songs.

I also wondered if studios got a cut from concession sales at the theater, which I doubt but could be possible.

As a teenager while working in a movie theater I was told that concession sales are the only thing keeping theaters in business since they get such a small percentage of the ticket sales. I don't know if that's actually true though.

I think that's true. I can't see any other way a theater would be able to make any money.

And though there's no overlapping text in the review for me, there is some overlapping text on the front page:

Works fine in 3.0.10 here. Even when you zoom.

I like the new review layout but as someone also mentions, you need some headers to split up the text smile
