Are the prices negotiable? I'm interested in Halo Wars, but $17 seems a bit high...

I've been out of the loop for a while, so feel free to scold me and point me to some eBay auction that's going for twice the price... biggrin

Why not just wipe the Compaq and install a fresh copy of Windows XP on it? That'll likely fix all the issues she's having. The computer's plenty fast enough to do what she does.

My co-worker just handed me an anonymous looking brown box with a UPS label on it. A little taller than my iPod Touch. The packing list looks like an Apple font.

Is it a sex toy, or is it my iPhone 5?  paranoid

Awwwwww..... it's an iPhone 5. A black one even. Sigh.  disgust icon_lol fwiw, I can verify it was in good shape at least in the box (no scratches, chips, weirdness, so far).

I dunno. Should I whip it out, or wait until I have a case for it? Yes, I'm talking about the phone.  icon_razz

I can verify that for an iOS product at least, it's incredibly thin/light (feels as light if not lighter than my previous gen iPod Touch, and as thin) and fits comfortably in my shirt pocket as the Touch did).

... your co-workers give each other... iPhones?

What's the big complaint on the maps app?  I've used it a few times and it's been spot on.  I've had Navigon forever on my phone, so I have that as backup, but I like the Siri integration for getting directions and it hasn't gotten me  lost at all.

Public transit. It has none.

Transit was about one of the few things I used the map app for before I moved out into the country.  luckily I can still pull up Google Maps through Safari and use it that way in a pinch, but it won't matter in a couple of months.

Maps in Safari /= native Maps.

Yes, once Google releases their own app, I will upgrade. Until then, I'm staying on iOS 5.

Dunno, I thought Prometheus was excellently directed, but frustratingly horrible writing.

Serbian Film - glad I sat through it but I have no desire to watch it ever again.

I made the mistake of reading a summary of this film once after someone mentioned it as possibly the most horrific thing ever put on film.  Call me a wuss, but I was honestly really shaken simply by reading its summary on a Wiki page.  I can't imagine actually watching it.

I completely agree.  I regret even reading what the movie was about.  I was disturbed by the wiki summary for several days afterwards.  I do not understand why a movie like that should exist.

Jesus H. Christ. Just read the Wikipedia article.

Fuck no, I'm not going to ever watch that movie.

Hey, you can use an iPhone's 3G connection (tethering?) using a WiFi-only iPad, right? Of course right now I'm still using a 2004 Nokia brick phone so this question is strictly hypothetical. I just don't know anyone who's used one that way and can maybe speak to whether it works OK.

I think my Verizon Wireless contract renewal is approaching, and might be a good time to finally upgrade. God knows I waited long enough.  icon_redface

If you jailbreak it, or you pay the extra 20 or whatever plus a month for tethering which only gets you 2Gig if that.

5 GB, actually. Still a ripoff, though.

Quote from: TiLT on March 18, 2012, 07:05:59 PM

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess what's going on in this movie right here, right now:

Spoiler for Hiden:
An alien race (the space jockeys) is trying to exterminate all races it considers a potential threat to itself. A signal is sent across the universe to attract those races advanced enough to seek it out. Once they arrive, the aliens do something to obtain the location of their home planet (probably some kind of brain extraction) and then sends a warship laden with bioweapons in the form of xenomorphs to wipe out the entire planet. The crew on the ship sent to seek out the alien signal discovers the plan and desperately tries to stop the ship before it can reach Earth. In the end they deliberately free one of the xenomorphs, which kills the space jockey and crashes the ship on an unknown, barren planet. The survivors then head home and tell their story, which leads directly into Alien, where Weyland-Yutani is trying to rediscover the location of the planet where the ship crashed to obtain the xenomorph for themselves.

Any better theories? smile

Sounds like the gist, but what I don't get is why is the ship so decrepit (hence the nickname given to it) in Alien?

Also, a question.  Is Ridley throwing out the Carl Bishop Weyland stuff?  Is Sir Peter Weyland the new canon?

I don't see a conflict between them. Carl Bishop Weyland could have been the founder of the company, and Peter Weyland one of his progeny.

If they boot the whole AVP thing out of canon, that'll be a good thing. A very good thing.

Got 3 of these tonight, much better than I was expecting. If you break a piece of the shell off it tastes like a dorito by itself. When you add all the other ingredients it does lose some of the dorito taste but I still noticed it.

Not sure it was worth 30 cents extra for a dorito taco shell, but definitely worth a try.



Broke my "never go to Taco Bell" rule today to grab 3 of those. I have to admit, it's not half-bad.

Yep, the official Apple Smart Cover. Black leather. The newer version that Apple modified back in October. Older Smart Covers don't work with the new iPad (won't sleep/wake the iPad), but the newer ones will.

Not perfect condition, it has been used and has a few minor scratches, etc. But functions perfectly.

What is unknown to him is, right within the very link he pasted into his post, is a tidbit that reveals that GemRB is compatible with iOS.

I use the smart cover only.  With my first gen one I didn't use anything.

I'm using a smart cover, but think I need to upgrade to something a little more sturdy.  I live in constant fear of dropping this thing on it's corner and seeing the screen shatter (like my iPhone did).

I'm using a Smart Cover ($20 for a red leather one on eBay, **** yeah!) and LOVE it.

I slip the iPad (with the Smart Cover) in my Incase sleeve that I bought for the original iPad. Works great!

Plus if I drop it, I get a new iPad for $50. Win!

Do you guys think the Apple Care extended warranty stuff is worth bothering with?

I agonized over that question, too. I didn't have it for the original iPad and my iPhone 3GS. No problems with iPad, but wished I had it with the 3GS.

So I went ahead and got it for my iPhone 4S without question. The iPad? Was a hard one, but I said screw it and went ahead.

Might be a waste of money. Might be *very* glad I had it. Could go either way.
