    Wow.. I totally "need" this sound card! It's got a separate "daughter card" to handle input and recording. Also has a 600 Ohm headphone amp and the whole nine yards..

    It'd be a great card for someone who still plays older DX10 games.

    Besides gaming (though it is geared toward gamers), it also would add a ton of graphical processing power for heavy video editing and such, far beyond the capabilities of an onboard proprietary video chipset.

    It's almost like they don't talk to each other. Kind of like the way MS used to be....
    Well, Sony has been restructuring for the better part of 10(!) years, so I'm not surprised. The truth of the matter is that I like the idea of where they've settled with the X line. This rumored X Premium phone makes no sense to me though. I think they took the best of the compact and OG Z phones and makes something compelling. The S652 chip is as good as the 808.

    But the truth is that Samsung now offers water resistance and may do so for a while. HTC has arguably equalled Sony's audio chops, maybe surpassed them in other areas too. So...what do they have to offer to stand out? The UI, while light looking, takes too much work for updates. They may want to take the HTC approach and pare down their skin even more to pump out quicker updates.

    Sony doesn't have a strategy, so they'll always overprice their stuff and watch people not buy it.

    I'm tired and would have stayed home if I wasn't working with the group of peer educators today. They've got today's meeting to prep for their trial run group facilitation next week before doing the live workshop in two weeks. I'm going get very grumpy today if they're lollygagging and time wasting in the meeting...

    The perp was on the run for a while.

    Sacramento has always been a good hideout for parolees on a crime spree.
    I'd like to move up to Los Molinos or Red Bluff to escape this BS down here...

    Los molinos? Man that place is super and I mean super quite. The only thing you would have to worry about is if you get cell service :p

    I'll never understand why a company dominating the sensor sales is so horrid in camera software. That's the one thing I like about Samsung: it's leveraging the parts of its conglomerate better than Sony for the mobile division.

    Until Sony makes a good camera all around, I'll pass.

    Looking at (and drooling over) headphones... these HD600's look pretty good. For a $400 pair of cans, they better be! There's some pretty lengthy, and quite technical reviews.

    You mean HAD, not WILL.

    Honestly, if you wanted one watch to do it all, the Sony SW3 was the best Gen 1 wear option. Get the metal one and buy 2 straps and you can switch up the look easily based on your flare. The Z3 tablet compact is still one of the best 8" around.

    But Sony makes ****, believes you'll buy it just because, and when it doesn't, they act surprised...
