  1. Checking in from my Brooklyn bubble. Thankfully I am working from home, which is sort of my natural state. I'm lucky enough to have a nice home office with a door and a home with a lot of windows, so I'm staying sane. Also a grocery store on the block is stocking very well. All things considered, doing ok. Family fine, too.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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...?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Tempted by the Series 4 watches on sale at Best Buy, but was planning on getting a Series 5... decisions...
  9. Holy shit - Oppo 203s are going for like $1,300 aftermarket. Tempting to cash in on that madness lol.
  10. Likewise, and I still have to play Breath of the Wild. That, and the new Star Wars game is looking neat.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. Yeah. There would be outrage if Apple was paying people $6000 to take the Power Mac. Apple outrage is a thing.
