If you could take a moment to go through it I would be super grateful!

Can be microSD or regular

It's for a go-pro hero 2 so I can't go any bigger.
IF you have one laying around i'll gladly take it off your hands.
Going rate for a bran new one is $200 so less than that is what i'm looking for.

Networking / WiFi Issue
« on: November 18, 2014, 08:21:08 AM »
Before you moan, It's my work Laptop, it's a mac.
I had the airport replaced by the Apple store in Chicago,
Now however, when I connect to WiFi i get connectivity for all of 1 min then it dies. i.e. I'm on the Wifi but no internet

Upon further inspection my device is seeing 2 airport cards, with diff Ip addresses.
if I turn off one, both turn off. Any advice?

Yeah I figured I was pretty much capped out. I'll check out the SSD sales and see what's reasonable.
Also graphics cards

GeForce GTX 580 (3Gig Card)

Corsair 750 Watt PSU
ASUS Sabertooth p67 MOBO
and 12 Gigs of the finest Corsair Vengeance Ram

Ideas for compatible upgrades? Dont wanna burst the bank. but a nice lil upgrade is possible.

I go peep the sony experia
I want to give samsung a break, bloatware gg no re

I feeling a Nexus 5 atm actually. the note is just too forking big.

I don't necessarily need the boss speakers, I prefer headphones.

Mobile Phones & Gadgets / Phone Change Debate (Apple's need not Apply)
« on: August 21, 2014, 09:45:32 AM »
Okie Dokes Folks

Here's the sitch. I've got a NOTE 3, while it serves as a great phone and does everything I want it has a few shortcomings.
1. it's massive and is literally warping the pockets of my pants.
2. I have no need for the stylus and size of the phone's capabilities.

So i'm in the market for a new phone. But with the Sheer options of Android phones out there. But I've gotten a much better sense of what I use my phone for and therfore the needs I have.

1. Music, I LOVE music, I have a lot of music on my phone so much so that the Note 3 is almost full and 80% of that is music - SO i need a phone with a large/expandable memory available. (larger native would obv be better)
2. Fitness - I run, I box and a number of other things and as such I need a phone that's not a little bitch with sweat/water/protein powder etc.
3. I'm a klutz and find that Tech21 makes the best damn cases ever (dont believe me, google it.) SO if Tech 21 makes a case for it, EVEN better.
4. Decent screen/Sound quality, I don't really ever get a chance to watch movies/shows on it.
5. SPEED - I multitask a LOT, music, whatsapp, googling images, replying to emails it has to have the ability to handle that quickly without much lag. Something I've NOTEiced happening here.

I'm not allied to Samsung specifically, but I do want an android phone

Nah man Arc, suicide isn't a cowards way out. Trust me the bravest thing you'll ever do is put a gun/knife/rope to your own neck. That takes BALLS.

Ole Talk / Re: Why are we paying for Flow's cable Service?
« on: May 02, 2014, 08:01:14 AM »
To correct my previous statement.
These are flow rates for Internet :
vs their basic Cable Rates:

For an average household we shall assume an average of 2.5 Devices (including phones)
For this household, a safe assumption is that the 20 MB Package would be sufficient coming in at $300.

And let's assume an average of 1.5 Cable boxes per Household.
Another Assumption, shows you 'must' watch , include at least one additional package from Flow's Basic Cable, The average cost of which = $85.80 + Basic Cable $150.00 = $230.80. X 1.5 (# of cable boxes) = $346.2

Off the bat, the cable package is $45 more expensive per month, does not offer flexibility like a streaming service.
Not to mention the plethora of 'add-ons' that can quickly ensure your cable experience is one of the bigger bills in your household.

Even if you bumped up the internet speed to the $500 a month package, you would likely have bandwidth enough for mom to skype, the kids to play and do research and dad to stream videos.

Sure if we go the legit route, Netflix is $8 US a month, Hulu is about the same thing $8 which covers 'most' content that is considered 'must see TV'.

XBMC is the future for the enlightened

Well, most of what I was going to say was covered. 'For the Masses' TV is as complex as it can get.
For us 'enlightened ones' We know that a faster internet connection > than a TV anyday

Since someone showed me how to RSS torrents i've even stopped watching Hulu.
Convenience for me, means I don't want to watch ads, I don't want to have to be home every monday/thursday friday at specific times. So streaming stuff/rss stuff works for me.
A 1 TB Harddrive about $100 US
A flow 25 MB Connection $500 or so monthly...
KNowing how to get all your shows the day after/live? Priceless

Knowledge is power over everything. Flow's internet service has always been better than TSTT. but yeah, i'll never have cable TV. just like. never.
