Yeah.. I am officially a brainless Nokia fanboy now.
Nokia make excellent phones, come on, you lived in Africa, you should know that! :x
last Nokia i owned was the 8210, just a little while ago
Got a bunch of new stuff lately:
Assassin'sCreed 3 Freedom Edition
They've all been added to my Gaming shelf:
Now shown, but new stuff: Nintendo Piranha Pete Plush, Nintendo Green 1up Mushroom Plush, Nintendo Bee Mushroom Plush, & Dark Brown Sitting Bull bean bag
Nice Nokia phone skylineaddict, I've been thinking about making Windows 8 phones our new work phones at work, just to try out something different from IOS, Android & Symbian, plus Exchange support is off course excellent in them.
Didn't intend to buy one. Was at Wallmart looking for a 32" 1080p Samsung, but the size wasn't going to work in my computer room unless I replaced my PC monitor. That's when I noticed they had 3 of these really cheap, so I bought 2, sold 1 for a $50 profit ( :evil: ), and kept the other. :lol:
$200 flat each.
What can I say about it. Even though I won't be using it as a PC monitor it's pretty damn good for that use, although from what I read, and have seen, there is a bit of lag when gaming (noticed it in Borderlands 2). Make sense as it's not designed for this purpose. Might use it as an offhand display every now and again. However, as a gaming TV.. holy crap is it ever gorgeous. Halo 4 looks really nice on it. Vibrant, rich colour, sharp... very sharp.
Now I just have to figure out how to mount the thing... :hmm:
nice gaming tv
nicew gear fellas. skylineaddict - that Nokia is very sleek
An addition to my WD portable arsenal
now I'm in the mood for more toys...
yes . . . keep it rolling
Got me a new router a few weeks ago, and remain glad that I did. TP-Link usually gets you a lot of features for the money and for what I've seen the reliability is at least as good as older brands like D-Link or Netgear. Even their low end routers have been solid. TL-WDR4300 is a dual band (2.4/5GHz) 300/450 N-router with three big antennas, Gigabit LAN and two USB 2.0 ports. The software is okay if not as spiffy looking as with for instance ASUS's flagship routers, but certainly competitive. There is a package with the alternative router firmware Open-WRT for more advanced configurations, but such modifications are not without risks so I'll probably not do it. I might want to toy with having a "guest" wireless share with limited bandwidth some day and then I'll look more into open firmware alternatives.
One thing it did not have and that I didn't really think about checking is official support for IPv6. Perhaps that will be come with a firmware update, but on the other hand I'm sad to say that it will probably take about least five years or so until most will have any use for IPv6 in a home router. Consumer routers don't tend to be behaving very well after a good number of years of constant running anyway.
The wireless is really quick on this one and that seems to be its most acclaimed part in reviews as well. I tested pings using a mini USB N-stick, it didn't add more than about 20 ms to game servers. So surprisingly useful for games over wireless if using a cable is not practical.
IPv6 is, and will continue to be, nothing but hype for the standard home user.
Old on the top, new on the bottom (oddly enough):
Bet you can't guess why I was fed up to the back teeth with that Phanteks. Now all I need is a motherboard.
Hint: Yes, that's a mounting screw hole in the middle. The other two screws sit either side. It also left about a 1.5cm gap between the fins and the top graphics card
Have you gotten a chance to play with the Wi-Fi yet? I'm really interested to hear how the Canon EOS Remote app works with it (and which version you tested).
Pretty soon, I'll be posting my new stuff here
what new stuff you got.?
I got used stuff...
this is my latest tech buy
(i'm taking advantage of ebay folks mental spending at xmas time to flog my Apple stuffs and upgrade, so needed a throwaway phone for a few weeks)
