    My wife just picked up some Marley's. She likes them.
    I liked them too but they short out faster than I'd like.

    She doesn't use them that often so maybe it won't be an issue. I guess we'll see.

    I wonder why more companies don't do wood ear buds.

    I hope they past pretty long for her. Perhaps I was too rough on mine, especially the earbuds. Overall, love the styling and the bass in Marley headphones.

    It's a clear sign that fundamentalism is taking over Turkey, evolution is the one science that really upsets them.
    They've evolved past a point of no return in their ignorance.

    We've got our own issues as well.

    I have become partial to Audio Technica in ear headphones. Bought an extra pair just in case the current ones conk out. My Sennheiser ones are still going strong for over ear duties. I do like the Bose on ear headphones but technically they're not mine.

    I saw a silver V20 in the store yesterday and the dark grey version in the wild on the subway. While the dark grey has this very practical subdued look to it, I prefer the phone in silver. Looks pretty good.

    My favorite brands for headphones are Sony and Sennheiser. I'd like to try Audio Technica and Marshalls at some point. I lack the Bose money so those are out of the question.

    Agreed. The silver V20 does look quite nice.

    The Bose were a steal a couple of Black Fridays ago. Otherwise I agree, they're quite expensive.

    The GF had wanted to get a Sound wave system for the past 3 years. If all goes well, I'll get her that as her Xmas gift.

    Mine was a 200mHz Pentium 1 with an enormous 24GB HD and ??mb RAM running Win95..
    Then I was working in a cocoa plantation in the interiors, Back then was no internet, no cell phones, not even telephone landlines.
    We had this Nokia Mobira Talkman, which was a beast of a phone. I laugh when people now complain about carrying heavy phones. That beast was 5½ kgs, it was a mobile gym!!

    Back to the PCs, .. and IE4, and the big hoo-ha when it updated the OS to Win98-ish...

    And back to games... A favourite was spending hours in the grottos with the nasties in Quake. DOS was cool. Then there was westwood's Blade Runner (all 6CDs)...

    ...!!
    Yeah, I don't think if my ram was more than few MB as well, who know, it was ages ago.

    I remember my dad buying his first phone. It was Siemens A55, I believe he payed 200€ for it, or something like that. Insane.

    I remember playing Quake as well, though I haven't stick to it for too long. I prefered playing NFS 2. Wasted whole days playing split screen vs my cousin. Good old split screen days.

    Why do people suck? Hopefully no one has fallen for this.

    PSA: Don't buy the OnePlus 5 via Amazon (US)
    This is just like Gearbest. Doing their little frauds. They make this 'serious price cuts', where they 'lower' the prices as much as '80%'.

    What they actuall do is this, I'll use OP 3T for example. They put a OnePlus 3T on a discounted list, place an 'original' price of 1000$, then make a serious 60% discount to 400$. What's sad is that people actually fall for it, unfortunately.

    That's true.
    Even better were games written and recorded on tapes and played on a ZX Spectrum connected to a TV!
    Now this is something, I had this console-like thingy that was also required to be connected to a TV and had games on cassettes. It was like a giant keyboard with a cassette slot, you could also plug in a pair of joysticks.

    So, kids playing outside late on a summer night:


    Growing up: we are literally in the street, deeply engaged in cricket/basketball/soccer.
    2017: the kids are sitting in chairs surrounding a TV and a console.

    And yes, I saw this an hour and a half ago walking up the the GF's. SMH...
    Yeah, I also spent summer nights playing either football or volleyball. We'd play basketball occasionaly as well, but it wasn't that often, since we didn't have a good court for it.

    We'd also stay late by the river, swimming and playing catch in the water.

    We used to fight over who's better footballer or who can dive longer, kids nowdays fight over Minecraft and Youtubers.

    That is just nonsense. Only an ignorant would deny such thing ads an evolution. I can't and will no accept that it's a matter of choice.

    Also, our former Ministry of science, sports and culture congratulated Turkey on the ban, commenting that 'someone finally remembered to ban a crap like that'. A freaking Ministry of ******* science.

    Tiring day today. It's been a long time since I had this many people coming i. and out of the house. Good thing that is that those who visited were more than welcome, didn't have to pretend.

    Anyway, now I'm out with the family and cousins having a cold lemonade. Can't ask for more.
