  1. Same in Brooklyn. All the people I know who have been mugged were using headphones and not paying attention. While it’s not a dangerous area, there’s no point in making oneself an easy target. Plus I enjoy hearing the sounds of the city and am more into reading books than zoning out to music on the subway these days. Also allows me to listen for the inevitable MTA announcement about why we’re being delayed or rerouted.
  2. Any tips for a relative newbie to this kind of game? So far no real big problems but I have a feeling that will change soon enough.
  3. Weird - my 1st-gen Watch kicked the bucket this week. Wasn't showing any issues, battery life was still fine. Just a red exclamation point now.
  4. Maybe a dumb question, but... is there a bundle here with Hulu Plus Live that would make sense? With Vue going offline in a couple months, I'm wondering if Hulu Live is a good option if I can get some sort of a discount...?
  5. Correct - "active noise canceling" tech does what you're talking about. The other, sealing off the ear to keep outside noise out, is considering "sound isolation". I was saying that I vastly prefer the latter. But then again, you have to be comfortable shoving a double-flanged eartip into your ear canal.
  6. So the Airpod Pros - do they really sound good? And is the isolation enough for city streets and subways? I just have a real hard time believing they sound decent as I've yet to hear active sound-isolation headphones or earphones that I like. They all sound - for lack of a better term - compressed to me, if that makes any sense. I love my in-ear Klipsch's as they have a wide-open loudspeaker presence, and with double-flanged eartips I'm pretty well isolated.
  7. Tempted by the Series 4 watches on sale at Best Buy, but was planning on getting a Series 5... decisions...
  8. Holy shit - Oppo 203s are going for like $1,300 aftermarket. Tempting to cash in on that madness lol.
  9. Likewise, and I still have to play Breath of the Wild. That, and the new Star Wars game is looking neat.
  10. This exactly. I was thinking about this very thing the other night as I was re-connecting mine (just installed a new TV stand / console and had to re-build the HT) and was thinking the ATV 4K was already 2 years old and was due for an update but... for what? I suppose they would just throw in a faster processor or something, but that doesn't seem needed. I could see them re-upping it for TV+ and Arcade, though, adding some feature that would require the new hardware as they love doing.
  11. Just got the presser from LG about their 8K OLEDs for those who may be interested. LG 8K OLED and NanoCell TV Rollout Release.pdf
  12. Yeah. There would be outrage if Apple was paying people $6000 to take the Power Mac. Apple outrage is a thing.
  13. I guess I'm in the minority here, but I really like how things are panning out, and I like that the characters are surprising me, turning out to be not-so-smart in some cases, and all that. I feel that's consistent with the writing of the show so far, at least. I do find it amusing how people on social media — the same people who have no problem with character inconsistencies in comic book movies and TV shows — are pissed about Danny going psycho genocide. Did we really think she was going to be a caring leader after all the hints were dropped, after she asked Jon Snow to keep the secret to himself because she just wanted power oh so bad, and after Sansa saw it coming? Regarding the dragons, they've been inconsistent since day one. I look at it this way: they're obviously sentient beings with personalities and strengths of their own. Treating them like D&D characters with stats (which I've seen a lot of - not calling out Romier here specifically) is exactly what's wrong with how people watch fantasy movies and TV in my opinion. Things don't get to be consistent because it's a videogame where the main character has to beat the final boss and win. There are no 20-sided dice. There are no RNGs with buffs and what-not. Sandor's final scene was amazing. Qyborn's death was perfect. He was an insect that deserved to be squashed. Euron's final words and death were hysterical. Loved it. I even thought Jamie and Cersei's death was fitting and well done. I really don't know how they would tie this all up and make everyone happy, but in my opinion, compared to other shows that had to do the same, they're doing it masterfully here. Anyway, I had fun watching it last night and that's pretty much all I ask of my free time.
