f*** that's cheap. I work in Newcastle Business Park, so I reckon I could walk to work in less than 5 minutes. Probably twice as long walking home. Interesting. Maybe that could be my second home.

Anyway, I was looking to rent, and somewhere significantly further West than that.

Not sure if its materialism but my scirocco is jinxed, it was crashed into for the third time on monday, think once its repaired and the residuals are high i am going to sell up and by a cheap car for a couple of grand. Its not worth the hassle of having a nice car these days as people have zero respect for others property and zero driving ability.

Depends on your shed tbh. Maybe a small shed.

It's all relative anyway, For a decent sized living rooms, where you're maybe... 8ft? away from the TV, you're gonna want something around 50. Hopefully my pidgin maths is accurate.

my first car.  Been insured on me mams before, but the time has come to buy my own.  My budget is about £2,000, but hopefully I'll knock a couple of hundred off as I can pay cash.  I fancy a VW Polo, similar to this that is on autotrader...

(http://pictures2.autotrader.co.uk/imgser-uk/servlet/media?id=1436293620)

however it all depends on insurance costs.  I'm under 25 and as a 'sometimes driver' up until now, I've not got my own no claims.

In my experience it's mainly posh kids that wear the North Face.

There was a parody of it a few years ago that said 'North East', wish I'd got one of those tshirts.

On the jacket/coat theme:

After a new North Face jacket for Christmas, best place to go? Got my current one from that place next to Triple S on Grainger Street, forget it's name, T_ _o?
tiso.


have a trawl around, great outdoors at boundary mill, go outdoors at westerhope, LD Mountain centre on dean street etc

may i ask why in particular a north face jacket or is it a particular north face jacket you want ?

I've found Great Outdoors at BM to be very reasonable with their prices.

Anywhere thats isn't Chavvy. So stay away from JD Sports, Henleys, Superdry, Fenchurch etc.

Have a look in Debenhams, they do some good brands in there that are smart casual and none offensive or over the top. I like Hollister, it's not everyone taste though.

Good choices though, but scrap the idea of having a Vespa, not anywhere where you can park them, locking them to bike racks can get you fined these days, plus everyone hates annoying scooters.

The Xbox slim is a nice idea but if you already have it's just a waste, I toyed with the idea myself but couldn't bring myself to waste the money.


The Macbook Pro and suit I have to agree with though.

Well, 3D is still in its infancy...so unless you really want it, it can wait.

What you using it for? Gaming and Sky/virgin...plus HD content from your future media sever?

If you've got the cash, Sony or Panasonic, if you want best value, Samsung.

The current LED Samsung models though experience some input lag which is noticeable and probably too much for a regular gamer, it's slightly fixed by gamer mode, but that restricts a lot of settings, colours etc...which for me isn't a work around at all.

how much is the budget?

Title: Re: Potential Materialism: The "What I might buy" Thread
Post by: SEMTEX on Sunday 17 October 2010, 09:00:13 PM
Aye, Xbox, Cable TV & Boxee Box for 1080p Movies/TV Shows.

As far as Sony vs Panny vs Samsung, I really don't mind investing the cash if there is a real benefit to doing so, I'll have to start reading some material.

There is also the issue of me not knowing where i'll be living and therefore how big the living room will be, so perhaps if I'm in a tiny apartment, I buy a smaller (better) tv. However, in general I want to buy quality over buying a MASSIVE TV for the sake of it.

Budget is unspecified due to not knowing size, but generally I'll pay whatever, as long as it's a good deal.

When do you think the purchase will happen, around xmas?

It's a tough call to spend a big chunk of a TV ATM imo, just as LED starts to settle down the 3D craze picks up, therefore tech will be changing a lot over the next couple of years...overall, probably the wrong time to buy a TV set with so much uncertainty, you stand to lose a lot of money whatever the option, unless you go for a Plasma which are big, cheap and excellent quality while not suffering from anywhere near the burn problems of older sets. you could pick up a 50" 1080p Plasma for £600, keep that for a couple of years and get half your money back no problem.

If my set went tomorrow, it would be my first option as a replacement, would that interest you or do you want the big shiny set now?

You could go for the best of the best plasma: http://whathifi.com/Review/Panasonic-TX-P50V20/

Around £1300

Oh I definitely will be waiting till I get over there, I'm just putting in the ground work now so that as soon as I hit US soil I can head straight to Best Buy and get my brand new 85" TV :D

I just sold my current TV, as it's not worth shipping a TV across there, it was an emotional moment. I'm gonna miss her. (Especially for the next few weeks while I use this ridiculously small Sony TV. 1080p at 19inch, what the f*** is the point :lol:

I'd be more than up for getting something like that TV you linked, but I assume that's not gonna be available in the US, given that it's freesat etc. Need to find US equvalent.

Right, I'm basically looking at 2 TVs atm. Bear in mind they're US models.

Panasonic Viera TC-P50VT25

(http://www.cybertheater.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/panasonic-television.jpeg)

The Panasonic probably has marginally better reviews due to black levels, but the Samsung is tempting me more at the moment due to the aesthetics and it'd probably be a few hundred dollar cheaper when I do invest.

The JBL speakers are all very good, if expensive.

I use a set of these (http://www.amazon.co.uk/X-Mini-Max-Stereo-Capsule-Speaker/dp/B001AVUQPC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1287493686&sr=8-3) with my phone and iPad, but I don't think they're significantly louder than a notebook's built-in speakers. You'd probably want more oomph.

I'm now on a TV1 vs TV2 comparison hunt.

First one "greatly" prefers the Samsung, but also says that Panny is mint: http://www.3d-tvbuyingguide.com/3dtv-reviews/3d-tv-shootout.html

I predict this will come down to cost come Jan/Feb. Also I will account for the price of the 3D glasses as Samsung comes with none, but Panny's cost more (for a 2nd pair).

Aaalso, the Samsung is the only one that has reviews saying 'displays 1080p/24fps content without artefacts'.

I have one of these.
It's quite stylish but made for being at sea so is warm as f*** and designed to brave the elements. You can pick one up for about £80 from just about any army/navy surplus store. There have been many expensive replicas made for the trendy gent..topshop etc but theres nothing like the real thing.

Thinking of getting some of them sloppy pants, somethin i quite like about them. Despite the fact i dislike those who wear them, I'm not skinny enough to wear them and will almost certainly look a bell in them.

There are some lush green ones in Topman at the minute, but they didn't have my size. Ended up getting the £15 brown cords from H&M.


Once I get a job I'm gunna get a tailor to do me a suit like the ones Jude Law wears in Alfie. I've wanted a suit for years. It's time.

Thinking about getting this Universal Works parka. Place in town has got it for £225 which is cheaper than most online.

Every f***er has got a Barbour so was looking for something a bit different.

Water damage apprantly after dry cleaning, not a mark on it.  The security gaurd was telling us that when they were first put out they smelt a bit funky but since they have been aired they are ok.

It's just a code to allow you to play games online. It's a 14 month membership that I can't use for reasons of no interest to you. You enter the code on your xbox and voila, online play.

Yes. I assume it'd be an Xbox 360 (It's either that or an original Xbox). Generally Halo is played online also. You'll have to ask/snoop.

Will get the bairn to the same place as the Gimp bloke, who can interview him disguised as a general chat about games. Then Gimp stands over me while i buy the right stuff. :lol:


this is the only way I can avoid a costly mistake and a disapointed kid.

I've just changed my mind again an want an iMac, however I'll need to mount my TV on my wall, so I need a new TV, about 32 inches. I want something decent but not overpriced, and if it comes free with a wall mount all the better.

Any suggestions?, the cheapest decent one I have found was £280 without a wall mount, also it has to be LCD, I don't want plasma and can't afford LED.

I want one of these to be a pure media centre PC now that I have a media server set up. May even use the XBMC Live OS thingy on it if/when I get round to getting one.

I like the idea of those HTPC's, and as slick and stylish as they look, most I've seen are massive overkill spec wise and it's reflected in the price. The cases themselves are over 100 quid!

On XBMC, is anyone a fan? Has anyone used the XBMC remote on Android and iPhone, its f***ing pimp!!

Aye, cheers. Just there are loads of Criterion blu-rays I need and they are all region locked.

Just select your model from the list below, then choose the modification option required. Blu-Ray modifications can only be achived by stripping down your player and fitted an additional processor and relevent components internally. This requires advanced soldering skills, so we recomend that you use our fitting service, or have a suitably qualified person fit the kit for you.

Think my best bet is just getting an American blu ray player. I've already got a PS3 so I can just switch between the two where appropriate.

Thinking about getting a DSLR, no idea where to start mind you!

Name your price then get the Canon. Then start buying lenses.

The basic Nikon D3000 DSLR is an exceptional beginner's camera. The big disadvantage versus Canon's cheaper camera is that the Nikon doesn't have autofocus motors in the body, so you don't get autofocus unless your lens has motors.

If you have a mate who already owns a Canon or a Nikon and has lenses he might lend you, probably best to go with that brand.

Lush that like. I've gave up on North Face coats now though, the sizes do my f***ing head in. Small is too small and medium is too big. The one i've had for ages is a medium and it's definitely too big imo.

try them on first and remember with a waterproof it's supposed to be roomy enought for a couple of layers underneath.

That's a nice coat. I'm looking for one, but I already have a smarter coat and an old superdry (yes, yes, note old) jacket. There's really not many 'proper' coats like that about on sites I find which is a bit annoying. They're either long wool coats with no hood or shitty lightweight jackets.

I've pretty much looked at them on the internet every few days since they were released last year dreaming about being able to afford them. After payday next week I might give into the temptation I reckon.

software takes gps data from each photo, shows it all on a map. It's pretty cool tbh.

Via a number of software packages or online photo sharing websites.

Ah. Was genuinely wondering, cos I've onticed more and more things marketing geotagging and personally can't see the point in it.

If you travel and take a lot of photo's then it's very useful and cool.  Most new smartphones do it already.

Its certainly more of a 'nice to have' thing rather than a must for me. But if you were a photo geek then I imagine it'd have more uses.

Nope, have been looking over the last week.  Australia is looking less likely due to the ridiculous strength of the dollar there.  Looking like I'll have just under £6k for 5 months, that should do?

Nothing better than music & powder. Just make sure that you're not cutting people up or drifting off away from your group.

Also, when getting gloves, might be worth your while getting some inbuilt wristguards.

Most snowboard shops will stock Westbeach, if you are from Oxford, try SS20, they've got loads of Westbeach stuff on their website

Can't say I've looked in a UK board shop myself for a couple of years now, should think it'll be fairly well stocked though, especially in places like Chill Factor, Xscape, etc.

Mammut stuff is fantastic. I have a red fleece-type jacket for cycling, and it is both beautiful and a top jacket. It cost an arm and a leg, but was worth every penny.

If it's a dealer you are going to, then don't take any notice of whatever free or cheap guide books say. Dealers go by guide books that are updated each month and have a high monthly fee, if you across with a guide book of your own they will actually tell you that to your face. Not only that but they will then determine that you have no idea of the real value of the car.

If the only worry is will it fit i'd go for it...I was looking at 58" sets in Costco at the weekend and really they aren't that much bigger really, you'll always have a big enough wall for one unless you get a really odd shaped living room. Bedroom are different, but were talking centre stage in a new flat/house.

Personally though the only plasma i'd go for is a Panasonic Viera. Anything else and i'd feel i'm cheating myself, the things are incredible.

Too late now, it's bought. I know you've got your Panasonic preference but I'm content with either, and this one has better 1080/24 support and much better WAF.

With it being apartments in the US, I shouldn't have the massive chimney issue, so hopefully all will be well.

going to look at that ^^ tomorrow.

can anyone recommend any decent second-hand dealers in the NE?  Weather permitting me and me dad are gonna have a deeks round a few garages.

go to the auctions- cut out the garages profit. they literally buy them- take them back do nowt and add at least a grand on for you.

went to an auction last month.  Didn't like it.  The one I was at you were unable to actually go inside the car until it was in front of you and bidding started.

Also, very few had full service history and had high mileages.  60k plus.  The Sand-dancing garage that Punto is at also give 12 months MOT.

ok - you know the garages also give them a nice haicut after the auction. and service histories are for sale on ebay. just trying to save you a couple quid. tbh your best bet is to find a nice private sale from an older couple with a car they have had all its life and looked after- they are like gold dust.

I have a kindle and massively recommend it.  The saving on books isn't massive when compared to amazon paperback book prices but i'm a big fan of it.  Such things as how easy it is to get a new book when i've finished one, the saving on storage space, I personally find it more comfortable to read than a book, it saves me luggage space when going abroad.  It can also be used to browse the internet and to play MP3's, though internet browsing is in black and white.

Basically I love it.

Microsoft develops shape-shifting touchscreen

    * Updated 13:16 29 November 2010 by Paul Marks

Microsoft this week filed a patent application covering a novel way to construct a "tactile" touchscreen – a display that uses technical tricks to convince users they are actually touching the ridges, bumps and textures of a displayed image.

Whereas previous screens produced only an illusion of texture, Microsoft proposes producing a real texture, using pixel-sized shape-memory plastic cells that can be ordered to protrude from the surface on command.

It's a new approach to the challenge, but not the first. Communications giant NokiaMovie Camera, Disney Research in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a Finnish firm called Senseg are all developing displays that use voltages of different frequencies, applied to a grid below the touchscreen, to trick our fingertips into experiencing a wide variety of touch sensations. They are known as vibrotactile displays.

They work well, but have limitations. For one thing, they can be noisy: some of the frequencies are in the audio range, so a buzz can be heard. Such problems may have prompted Microsoft to pursue a radically different approach.

In US patent application 2010/0295820, published yesterday, Microsoft proposes using a layer of shape-memory plastic placed above a large touchscreen to distort the surface of the screen when different wavelengths of ultraviolet light strike the pixels from beneath.

Microsoft's named inventor, Erez Kikin-Gil at the firm's Redmond campus in Washington state, says in the patent that the idea is aimed at large table-sized computing displays such as the company's Surface, rather than phones or tablets.

A projector built into the Surface displays a computer image onto the table top from below. As the user touches it, infrared reflections from their fingertips are detected by cameras beneath the table and used to pinpoint the position of the finger and lend touchscreen capability.

In the patent, Microsoft proposes coating the display with a light-induced shape-memory polymer. This becomes hard and protruding when one wavelength of ultraviolet light is transmitted at a pixel, and soft when another wavelength hits it. By modulating these wavelengths, texture can be created, the patent claims.

However, Microsoft never comments on its plans for its patents and it is not yet known how feasible the idea is.

If it works it certainly would be welcome, says Patrick Baudisch, a display interaction expert at the University of Potsdam in Germany, who worked on the Surface in its early days.

"Creating well-defined bumps on a touch surface is in many ways the holy grail of text entry on touch devices because it would enable touch typing at much faster speeds than on touchscreens today," he says.

And if it could be used on smaller devices, it could spell the end of keypads on phones, he believes. "There would be no more reason for mobile keypads – they would simply be emulated when necessary. That could effect massive change in this field."

to save money, i cut mine myself for about 2 years, a 12 quid clipper saved 6 quid a month. Grown my hair back in now though as i got bored with the action man look.

Why would you not want to do it?! If you just shave your hair on the same setting all round, surely doing it yourself, having it take 5 minutes and cost £0 is the ideal situation.

Because it's easier to keep it trimmed than going back to the barbers every 2-3 weeks.

I kinda like the whole barber experience and find it very relaxing. You go in, sit down and have a lovely woman or cultured gent tend to you for 20 minutes. Plus it could all easily go wrong when you trim it yourself.

I'm going to have to keep on looking like, think even I would be able to thumb a code in. The search goes on...

Did you know a good proportion of Blu-Ray discs are region-free anyway? In which case it doesn't matter - they'll play on any machine.

There are a bunch of listing sites that tell you if a disc is region-locked or not.

Aye, cheers. Just there are loads of Criterion blu-rays I need and they are all region locked.

Quote
Just select your model from the list below, then choose the modification option required. Blu-Ray modifications can only be achived by stripping down your player and fitted an additional processor and relevent components internally. This requires advanced soldering skills, so we recomend that you use our fitting service, or have a suitably qualified person fit the kit for you.

Think my best bet is just getting an American blu ray player. I've already got a PS3 so I can just switch between the two where appropriate.

Right, after sorting out finances I'm ready to get the American blu-ray player. One final thing I'm curious about - the voltage differences between US and UK appliances. I've read that with most small electrical appliances you're generally ok with just using a plug converter and just getting straight on with it, but I'm wondering if anyone here knows whether I'll need to get a voltage converter before the machine will work?

I don't know why but I'm not a fan of HP, they have a name similar to Packard Bell who were really awful. Anyway for those specs and that price it seems to be a really decent bargain. Remember though that you will probably need Microsoft office, and definatly an anti-virus on top of the laptop as well.

As I've said in the other thread I've just bought a 1TB Western Digital passport from my Mac.

 :weep:

:lol:

Sorry chap but I can't be seen to be taking advice from a 46 incher. I'm a 50s guy now.

I'm still waiting for you to justify my Onkyo purchase by recognising my post in the Materialism thread. :'(

I must have missed it sorry, saw you buy some stand and one of everything from costco, sure it was in that post come to think of it.



It was in that post, it was!

It's basically the standard Onkyo HTIB effort, pretty pugly but good bang for buck, with ability to replace speakers with BEASTS down the line if I wish.



 :lol: One of my friends bought a 68" plasma the other day, haven't actually seen it yet, must be mind blowing.

Anyway Onkyo are pretty good, make great receivers and nearly got one myself but chose the Denon, could have easily swayed to Onkyo though.

I also considered the onkyo 22hdx (HD had some whining issues out of the speakers but the X fixed that) when getting my amp only i was told from several sources i'd probably not be happy (with the bass response) due to the size of the speakers after having my Mission M74's.

Back to your purchase, Onkyo very rarely make anything less than a good product so you should be happy. :)

IKEA basically has this stand in LACK form, but I went in there and tested it out with my girth and I was unimpressed. So I went online and found that baby. A bit of a risk buying furniture online, but it seems pretty nice. Sturdy.

It'll look a lot better when I've got all my s*** in it, right now it looks a little stupid with just that box...

I went to rent that car and the bloke on the phone waited until right up to the point of payment to tell me that their would be an extra £250 refundable deposit.
This was after about 20 minutes of me trying to tell him how long I wanted the car for, and where I wanted to pick it up from. In the end I gave up and told him that picking it up from their garage that's the furthest away from me was fine.

Looks like i'll have to wait until payday, I've got a sneaky suspicion that me booking online would probably be far cheaper and easier next time.

Yup, you'll need a credit or debit card with at least the excess charge available before you can hire a car (alternatively, some places allow you to buy excess insurance which covers you entirely)

I'm not bothered about the fee, fair play for covering their backs, it's just tell me about it before I'm about to pay.

Then they have the nerve to bill me 35 quid for an additional valet due to the condition I returned it in - yeah, it was f***ing snowing all the time Eurocar you pricks, that tends to make keeping the carpets clean pretty tricky.

I had the same issue with them. I booked an estate car last year (VW Passat Estate) because we had loads of stuff to lug about and they provided a f***ing VW Golf.

They argued it was in the same category of car/same class etc so I asked them why did VW bother investing millions to develop the Passat to which they had no response.

I ended up with a Vauxhall Insignia Estate being driven down from another location.

Funny when I looked at the voucher a few weeks later before travelling the A4 had changed to an Insignia so I looked it up and as it seemed to look fairly fancy thought what the f*** (not really a car man clearly) but to get a Focus, even I know they're utter s***.

I'd been travelling for 24 hours when I picked it up at 9pm in Newcastle Airport otherwise I think I'd have went mental, as it was I was tired, freezing and just had to get back on the move.

Yeah - the Insignia was fine for what we wanted in the end but the service from them (and the industry as a whole) was f***ing dire.

Just such a blase attitude where they think people will just accept whatever they've got.

The c***s also tried to say I didn't have enough I.D with me (I took paper and credit card type licence) to go ahead after I kicked off because their 'policy had changed and we need a copy of your passport'.

When I queried why they said that 3 golfs had been half inched and the company policy had changed.

Needless to say they hadn't told customers who were pre-booked.

It's an industry that completly f***s me off, I use hire cars quite a bit for business, and I'm yet to be impressed by them.

How do they make money BTW?

The business model clearly works cos there is loads of choice but how do they actually make a profit?

you're not wrong on the industry like, not had a "good" experience with any of them - suppose avis came the closest...goes for quite of lot in the UK imo, also had to take the GNER up north after my flight was cancelled, that was an absolute f***ing disgrace of the highest order but i'd be here all day if i start on about that

as regards the profit who knows, maybe getting fuckwits like me to pay 600 quid for a ford focus for less than 2 weeks - assuming they manage their stock levels tightly (read: not have enough of the expensive nicer cars but more of the cheap ones then try and get away downgrading people) they should do pretty well i'd imagine

captive audience especially at airports, and when businesses use them they'll probably not care on the whole

Aye, it must work, just never adds up to big dollar whenever I make rough sums in my head what with their staff, airport rent, buying cars, maintaining them etc etc.

Yep - s**** service is a massive bug bear for me and something we are so poor at in the UK.

been looking for a way to crowbar in my recent trip home so here we go ;)

in the intervening 4 years i'd built up the impression that service across the UK was lower than a snakes belly only to find the moment i landed in London (somewhere i've always hated with a passion) fantastic service in everything i did or tried to do, i was staggered

the moment i hit GNER going north the wheels came off though, first class on the train being ran by 3 geordie housewives who behaved like they were on an episode of trisha, we got thrown off the train for these 3 harpies to look after themselves and get on the next train going north while every single passenger was clueless about what to do...never picked up from there on in, even to the point where in either newcastle airport or heathrow on the way out nobody would put the bairns food in a microwave for 1 minute so she had to eat cold bait...diabolical

Yeah - the Insignia was fine for what we wanted in the end but the service from them (and the industry as a whole) was f***ing dire.

Just such a blase attitude where they think people will just accept whatever they've got.

The c***s also tried to say I didn't have enough I.D with me (I took paper and credit card type licence) to go ahead after I kicked off because their 'policy had changed and we need a copy of your passport'.

When I queried why they said that 3 golfs had been half inched and the company policy had changed.

Needless to say they hadn't told customers who were pre-booked.

It's an industry that completly f***s me off, I use hire cars quite a bit for business, and I'm yet to be impressed by them.

How do they make money BTW?

The business model clearly works cos there is loads of choice but how do they actually make a profit?


you're not wrong on the industry like, not had a "good" experience with any of them - suppose avis came the closest...goes for quite of lot in the UK imo, also had to take the GNER up north after my flight was cancelled, that was an absolute f***ing disgrace of the highest order but i'd be here all day if i start on about that

as regards the profit who knows, maybe getting fuckwits like me to pay 600 quid for a ford focus for less than 2 weeks - assuming they manage their stock levels tightly (read: not have enough of the expensive nicer cars but more of the cheap ones then try and get away downgrading people) they should do pretty well i'd imagine

captive audience especially at airports, and when businesses use them they'll probably not care on the whole

There is a car rental place near where I'm living now, it's just a standard big old firm (national?), but it's a tiny little branch just run by this one guy and his family. My experiences there have totally shat on my experiences at any of the places that have a massive stock of cars on the lot. But as you say, it's a captive audience issue, you don't really get to shop around so much when you're flying in somewhere.

I have to say I have had some pretty good experiences with bigger car rental firms in the US.

Service is generally better and the stock is far more vast. Also, you can almost always offer to pay a couple of quid more a day and they'll chuck you a whopping upgrade.

Last time I was in Miami with work I ended up with a Lincoln Navigator for the price of a mid-range car. Win.

Have you not previously said that you hated buying trainers or something along those lines? This doesn’t tie in with the amount of items I’ve seen from you in that Materialism thread. It’s a good thing though, you need to embrace trainers, they’re a fantastic way to burn money. Give it another month over here and I will have bought another 3 pairs in the sales. US sales are the s***.

I wouldn't trust any website for a Rolex. Rolex themselves don't sell them online, nor do many of their official resellers, infact a lot of them won't even give you a price online. Try Northern Goldsmith's.

The Sennheiser headphones I got recently are brilliant. Can't recommend them highly enough.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002VPDOI2/ref=oss_product

They're so lightweight and the folding-up gimmick is actually much more useful/value-adding than I gave it credit for. Keeps the sound in, and blocks out external sound, adjustable size, can't find a fault with it personally.

Although the prices are all over the place, there are 500s for £12 or £80!?! What the f***'s going on with that? :lol:

I need some new earphones as one of my current ones keeps falling apart, any suggestions? I've Sennheiser ones at the moment, which I like and would get again if no-one suggests something better.

Don't know how good you're after but for cheap in ear ones you can't go wrong with CX300s

Are the 300s better than the 500s?

No idea but they're more than adequate for £15.

I got the 500s recently Indi, they are not bad for £12. Apparently there are loads of fakes about so watch from where you get them from. Might be tempted to get the plus £50 sennheisers in the future though as these 500s are a bit lacking in the highmids and highs.

Seems I'm going mad, thought I'd made a post about this earlier and couldn't find it. Turns out it's nicely written out and still sitting as a tab...

I'm after the same thing - earphones - but also an amp. Open-minded on price, my cx-300II's just broke, wondering about Shure-215s and a FIIO E5 to go with my Samsung Galaxy. Anyone got any thoughts on more expensive stuff?

Regarding the 300iis indi, fyi, the wire has been getting steadily yanked out of the jack seal and the sounds finally (half) died. Bought them fairly recently, had never happened with my original 300s, but may have happened because I'm using them differently, having them lead into my jeans pocket meaning the angled connection sometimes gets squashed...

The Sennheiser headphones I got recently are brilliant. Can't recommend them highly enough.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002VPDOI2/ref=oss_product

They're so lightweight and the folding-up gimmick is actually much more useful/value-adding than I gave it credit for. Keeps the sound in, and blocks out external sound, adjustable size, can't find a fault with it personally.

Too big for me, they need to be inner-ear jobs otherwise I'd never be arsed to take them anywhere with me.

I thought the same way but I'm a changed man - these are that light-weight/practical. Fair enough though! :)

The ones I've got are 500s, got them off ebay so not sure if they're legit, but they're still good.

80 I'm guessing that the "ii" makes something newer (better) than something without, and that the higher the number the better (:dontknow:), is that right? So what about some 400IIs for £22 on Play: http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/-/3177/2444/-/8116318/Sennheiser-CX-400-Mark-II-Precision-Headphones/Product.html?cpage=2 any good?

Yep, the ii was an updated version. I'm not actually sure the 500s were intended as being better than the 300s, but from the research I did it seemed the 300iis were thought of as better. Given the similar price, I guessed it was much of a muchness or the 500s were a failed launch and went with the latter.

400iis... Can't say I've used them myself, seem to remember being told they were just 300iis with cord volume control. What I know is I quite liked my 300iis. That said... Not the strongest logic in the world, but given the fact the 400s seem to have also been given a second edition, maybe they either earned a good reputation the first time round or have had the kinks ironed out and been made the better pair they ought to have been in the first place. Having just read the Sennheiser website and seen the extra promotion they're getting, I'd be tempted to gamble and go for them myself if I was you. But I'm not... and I'm not an expert on them so don't rely on me too much :lol:

There is a video on youtube about it, mostly the packaging. Mine appear to be real although it looks pretty hard to tell. If they sound pretty s*** then I guess they will be fake. It did take a while to break mine in though too, I always try and leave music playing for about 12/24 hours through headphones speakers when I get them to settle them down a bit. And like I said these aren't great but are not bad considering the price.

It feels great though. Initially.

Then over the months you pay your mortgage and get statements. Each statement reminding you that your balance hasn't really reduced, even though you've already paid a s*** load of installments :pow:

Still, the freedom to do whatever you like to the property (as it's yours) outweighs this. Oh, wait :undecided:

I fecking hate this, every three month i get a statement reminding me that although i've paid £1200 my balance has reduced by like £300! the b******s !!

Been looking at houses on the web today, can't afford at the minute particularly, but still the whole thing makes me feel sick. So much commitment.

The drop in house prices are amazing! we've been watching a 4 bed detached thats went from £215k to £165k over the last 6 months.  It is a big commitment but well worth it in the long run.

I'm looking to buy in the next year or so too, even London flats are getting cheaper now, offers going in always seem to be well below the asking price.

First time in my adult life I've seen houses become more affordable, it's weird.

I want to buy a hip flask.

I'm on an Atkins diet and I can start drinking in moderation after I finish the induction period (2 weeks.)

But the local brew here is very sugar-heavy so I want to just get a flask, fill it with Gin and carry it around so I can have something slightly less harmful to drink when I have to.

Has anyone used one before? Any recommendations?

Anyhow, can anyone suggest somewhere for football equipment thats not one of fattys shops or DW at the top of Shields Rd?  Ideally want to buy today so prodirectsoccer etc are out of the question.

Oh, I also got a cap with a multi-coloured light on the top, that was cool.

And the towel.

I think I went to BCM a few too many times that week.

I thought I was going to die during that foam party s***. I was completely encased in foam, I couldn't breathe in as I'd just breathe in the foam, and I couldn't tell which direction was to safety. I ended up just ramming my way through everyone until I found safety. Nasty f***ing experience.

Other than that, my main experience is Westwood dropping the bomb. And then me getting a photo with the big dog. The cost of the holiday was worth it for that moment alone tbh

the foam parties were quality, but yes, you did feel like you were going to die.  While stumbling through the foam I ended up bumping into some lad I became friends with in Cuba a few years before.  Hadn't kept in contact at all.  It was quite a surreal experience.

There was a video being shot there one year we went. Not a clue who it was, I'm not into that music or anything. Think the same bloke that done the 'Now You're Gone' song. I was much happier in 'the Indie Club' near the top of the stript tbh :lol:

Foam parties in that place are f***ing ridiculous, wouldn't be surprised if they got stopped one day for health and safety reasons, man. Crazy s***.

Drunk, popcorn all over the floor = that must be really soft and bouncy  :no:

Plus we were young and stupid so thought it would be funny to slide tackle each other, throw each other on the floor etc.. which if it was just the concrete floor and not the massive quarter of an inch layer of popcorn covering it we wouldn't have done.

We were staying in the appartments right next to BCM, she came down every day in this white bikini, she was AMAZING.

I found a hairband in my bed early on in the holiday so my chat up line was "are you my princess" or some s*** like that for the rest of the holiday (ie the lost slipper thing). I asked her and she just said "No!" gave me a funny look and walked off.

:lol: s***. Was still just dreaming of lads holidays in '02. Mine were '07, '08 and '09. KFC was my port of call every night the first year. Got a free meal for eating a whole family bucket and drinking the bottle of coke one night. Then I discovered Subway, with the women who made me feel like I was in the military. 'CHEESE' 'SALAD' 'TOASTED'. I s*** myself the first night I went in there, they just seemed so f***ing angry! Then they gave me about 5 euros change in 10 and 20 cent coins as they had 'no more change'. They then tried to persuade me to put it in their tips and I told them to get f***ed :lol:

I've no clue when I went. I'm gonna go with '05, but I've no clue really.

I'm pretty sure I just ate McDonalds and KFC for the entire holiday, and I don't even particularly like either. Oh well.

Though, we stopped going to McDonalds half-way through the holiday because my drunken mate decided he'd angrily react to a young lady who pushed infront of us whilst we were in the queue for McDs at 2am or something. He proceeded to shout at the top of his voice about how much of a filthy spic she was. Of course, me and my other mate are partly to blame, as we taught him the term 'spic' only a few days beforehand, and told him that it was just something we made up. :undecided: :D

some kind of nearly new hyundai i30 or kia ceed will do the trick. Good value and suprisingly good, the koreans have came on a lot over recent years. However if you want slightly older there are loads of possibilities, is mpg an issue?  how big? fwd, rwd or 4x4?  sporty/luxury/family?

Whilst I wouldn't say they were pointless, you may as well get a MBP 13 inch for that kinda money. Though if you've got some other PC/Mac in the house as your main powerhouse, why not buy the smallest, sexiest baby you can afford?

I'd gladly have one, if you wanna buy me one.

The only reason to buy a MacBook Air is if you've really, really got to have a computer that small (or you totally don't give a f*** about paying through the nose for a 2011 computer with 2008 performance).

They are absolutely tiny (the small one is about an inch longer than the iPad and barely any thicker), but the hardware compromises are massive to get that size. The processor is old and the hard drive isn't a hard drive (it looks more like a stick of RAM). This is a guess, but I don't think they're anywhere near as solid as a MacBook or an iPad, either, which to my mind is one of the big advantages of Apple gear vs cheapo plastic PC notebooks.

As a full-on Mac fanboy, buying a Mac is generally a good idea in my opinion, but the Air only makes sense if you want to carry it everywhere with you. In that case, it's in a class of its own. The size of an iPad, but a full computer. And it's not a netbook. It has a proper, if old, processor, not a weedy Atom, and it's thinness that counts not the size of the screen, when it comes to carrying it around.

I need to buy one for a wedding and I want it to be a decent, but not wallet busting suit. None of the 'court case suits' you get in ASDA and Tesco and such.

Budget is around £100.

cheers for that you three, pretty much what i thought...lightness and size for the wife were the driving thought but i reckon smallest mbp is likely the best way to

or indeed convince her they're all the same weight so she might as well have mine and i'll have the new mbp that's just come out   :snod:

yes, that'll work

M&S are usually alreet I find. Think I got one for about £125. Failing that you could get a "trendy" one from Topman if you're a waif like youth.

That's the one I was going to get, but I found out that there's a few different model numbers that are exactly the same in terms of everything other than the bevel (surrounding frame thingymajig) and in the end I got one of the others for a couple of hundred less. Before you get one, have a check and see if it's still possible. It's a great TV by the way. :nods:

Cubase, jesus..

I understand computers, and I understand music, and as such I generally understand music software.  But trying to use Cubase made me feel like my dad trying to work out where the computer had put his letter he had written in Works.

I do music tech in college and that's the software they thought us to use, I find it quite straightforward enough tbh. Plus it's part of a bundle so I'm getting stuff at a reduced price. Hopefully I can afford this s*** in the summer, need a condenser mic as well as my SM57 isn't good enough for acoustic guitars. A matched stereo pair (crossed miced would be my ideal choice but it looks expensive).

I had this exact issue last year.  Have all but stopped playing guitar since then, after the purchase of piano, thus consigning 20+ years of learning to play to history :)

Anyway, I ended up with a Rode M3 which is just stunning for acoustic, but needs a preamp as well.  I think they cost me about £180 for both.  A matched pair is better - Rode also do a custom factory matched pair - but a fake stereo split from a mono signal still sounds pretty good tbh :)
I've read the home recording thread (will probably end up bumping it later in the summer for more advice). Electric is my main concern anyway tbh so I'm willing to hold out a while on the mic for the acoustic. Plan to build a nice home studio over time, this is just to start me off and get a few songs i've wrote down.

I've had a couple of Acers and a Mac (albeit an iBook, not one of the Pro jobbies), and the difference is like night and day. That is to say, Acers are crappy and MacBooks are about the best built notebooks out there. Of the machines I've seen, only Lenovo ThinkPads are comparable.

Acers have been good for me, but pisstake after 14 months for it go.  I will be able to get it fixed in Vietnam also shouldn't cost too much from what I've seen.  Gonna get it fixed and then sell it on to help pay for Macbook.

Most will handle AVI files but the problem comes with the sound, there are a lot of different sound codecs that wont be recognised by the TV.
Doubt it would be able to play .MKV files.
If you are wanting to play video files on the TV a media player might be a better option.

Something like this

Aye it's a pain bringing a new face in to the fold though we've been pretty lucky when we have done. We had a right old bad tempered ally cat, and we got a rescue kitten, she was tiny, smallest kitten I've ever seen, about half the size of what she should have been. We were worried, especially since this ally cat was a proper scrapper, missing tufts, chewed ear, part of his tail missing (followed me mam home one night from work and he stayed)

Anyway we all had visions of him killing her, especially being in his territory, all attention on him, but she was his little shadow, just followed him around, jumping out around corners at him and trying to play fight at every opportunity, and he took it all in his stride. He got hit by a car shortyish after, few years later we got our to be last cat, but this time we had a dog, and this dog mothered him to bits, used to lie on her side and let him suckle, nowt came out but still, so cute at the time. The little rescue cat just stayed out of the way, never bothered with him until her last fees years when she softened up, but he used to jump out on her when he was brand new, and age reacted exactly like the ally cat when we werent looking, but when she notice us off she went. Bad tempered little s***.  :lol:

God how I miss owning a cat.  :weep:

Looked into the Boardman bikes at all? I know it's Halfords, but seriously best spec you can get for your money atm.

For example http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_777725_langId_-1_categoryId_165710 is a bit cheaper with similar kit. They ride well too.

For that kind of money, you can go to a bike shop and have a bike built just for you. Just the right frame (the most important bit), the wheels you want, the gears you want, the right handlebars in the right size. If you know what you're after, it'll be a far better bike, even if it doesn't look as good on paper.

for 1560 notes i would at leat expect some bloody pedals! its pretty useless without them

Expensive bikes never have pedals because they assume you have your own boots and will want specific pedals. There's no point mounting a £70 pair of pedals if you're just going to chuck 'em in the bin or leave 'em at the bike shop and demand a reduction.

hm, saddle better be good for that price

It will probably be very light. Comfortable is another matter...

The Crossfire is significantly cheaper but the interior is pretty poor tbh, also parts are supposed to be very pricey. When you say the Z4 will be too much to run are you talking more fuel or insurance?

Was thinking more Audley.

In response to Nixon, it's a very fair point and despite 6 months ago being prepared to go into training for a fight I am no further, or if being honest to myself I am even further away from a fight.

I am apparently fit enough for a fight (currently sparring 6-7 rounds when I would be fighting 3 rounds) but I still need to work on my sharpness and again being honest, I need to lose about 2 stone because if I am not at my natural fighting weight.

Where as people like Jill, MKSC, Joey, Blef, Tooj etc.. have had the mental strength to set a target and achieve it I have massively failed and made excuses which is something I have previously got angry at people for. I am due to step up my training but the main thing I need to do is completely cut out the drinking and sort out my eating, lack of confidence is also a massive thing I need to overcome.

I am being really pushed now (to the point I am training on an ankle that looked like it did a couple of weeks ago in my 'looking for attention pictures' and excuses are being ignored), also turning 29 soon so it's up to me.

Sorry that was a bit of a long response, just getting it all out and I do need a kick up the arse so I appreciate it :lol:

My mum and dad have one of those. Really good if you can't be arsed to set your computer up as a media centre. Sound quality is excellent and the storage is pretty large. I'll come down any day and my dad will have it on full library of random tunes and be absolutely loving it.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a non-free standing pull-up bar for the home?

Ideally not one that needs screwing into the sides of the threshold of a door, but something that might distribute a person's weight evenly across a door frame?

Thanks

Honestly thought it wouldn't handle my weight (a lot) but it's absolutely fine, works great.

Clay: How does the special screen work for you? Does is perform as advertised?

I really think it would be a good investment.

It works great, tried it out in the ridiculous sunshine we had a month or so ago and it coped perfectly.. you can find angles where the sun does reflect into your eyes but a slight tilt to either direction gets rid of it.

It's worlds apart from LCD screens in daylight/sunshine like.

As a technology, it doesn't seem to be attractive to me - it actually seems fairly backwards - but if it saves money on books, I guess - eventually - it would recoup it's £100-odd value if you read enough books/aren't aware of the concept of borrowing books from the library ;)

Oh it's cosmetically not that attractive no.. certainly doesn't look as swish as LCD tablets but then again it's just for reading books, that's all. You can make it look a bit better with a cover/case though, love mine.

It's massive plus tech wise is the glare resisitant screen and how natural it is to read on. Added with the no eye strain and month long battery life it's pretty decent.

It is a money saver if you're planning on getting books off the internet... there's thousands of legal free books too.

Post by: TheGuv on Sunday 14 August 2011, 02:58:26 PM
Black or Brown?

Cannot make my mind up on what the more traditonal colour of boots used to be.


I read this on boots which i found fascinating:

Quote
According to the The Encyclopedia of British Football: "Many players used to buy their boots on the small side and stand in a hot bath allowing them to expand, the aim being to mould the boot to suit the size of their feet." In 1937 the top amateur footballer, F. N. S. Creek, published his book, Association Football. He suggested that after buying a pair of football boots "sit on the edge of the bath with the boots soaking in tepid water for about half an hour". He then adds: "The boots are next allowed to dry slowly - not in front of the fire - and are finally well greased with dubbin."

Jackie Milburn was a coalminer in Ashington who joined Newcastle United in 1943. He points out in his autobiography that he used to wear a new pair of boots down the pit where conditions were often wet. Even after he became a full-time professional footballer he still used this strategy. He rejected the lightweight books given to him by the England management in 1950: "I always wore a size-six football boot even though my feet were size eight, so I used to break in a new pair by wearing them without socks and soaking them in cold water to mould them to my feet. I always preferred heavier soles to put some clout in my shots. Those new lightweights weren't for me." The author of this article remembers as a child in the 1950s being told by his father to wear his new football boots in the bath.

Class boots, I'd be tempted to get a pair if I was in need of a new pair. That said I love my current boots like, probably the best boots I've ever had.

I'm a bit of a geek when it comes to boots.

Which ones do you have? The original red-black pair? Or the more recent ones?

Ah nice. I had Vapors prior but they just felt like clown shoes really. Can see me sticking with the current pair or the Maestri line for a few years.

Always the way. Everybody I know with a family that buys an iPad ends up buying another one because they can't get the first one away from other family members.

Buying a PSP would not mean your finger is on the pulse. I fact, it'd be very far from the pulse. Go buy a HP TouchPad. That's where it's at.

Not to be a negative b******, but they're b******s to shop for electric shavers/trimmers. Common pitfalls include s**** battery life (if they take batteries), poor design build (ie. break quite quickly), cane your face when you use it/catch on coarse hair (depending how hairy you are) and a plethora of other problems.

The one I have now was a present. As far as I can tell, it doesn't have a brand - and I haven't been able to find it online. I just hope it doesn't break, because I went through about three or four s**** ones before this one.

If you're looking for a beard trimmer/stubbly look, you can't go wrong with one of these:

Excellent bit of kit.

Mine was about 7 years old when it finally gave up the ghost last week. Unfortunately, I had just shaved half my head with it. I thought I was going to have to wear a hat to work all day, but for some reason I found another  identical trimmer in the cupboard.

A flying lesson. I'd love to do a whole course of them but it will cost between £6k-£8k and I want to do my HGV licence first. A one off flying lesson would cost between £135-£150 depending on what type of aircraft I used. I'm making it a Christmas wish but if I can't have it for Christmas then I'll get it myself.

Right. I want a new hifi. Old skool meets the new skool...

Was toying with getting one of those Brennan JB7 things, and then hummed and hahed about maybe getting a SONOS system, but then realised what I want on top of all that was something which can play Spotify, has DAB and can stream internet radio too.

So not really wanting much out of it...

I would recommend against Babyliss. Certainly the one I had was utter rubbish. And the blades are s***: they tear your skin up if you try to use the trimmer without the adapter thingy.
