Re: Amazon Echo Buds - Totally wireless earphones

A right-out-of-the box review: There's a lot to like about these but that said I would call them a "v1.0" (first version) product. They sound very good, but with a few niggles. As with any earbud, the fit and seal will make or break the sound. Luckily mine fit pretty well, for sure better than a num...

Re: Boycotting All TV Networks

genuine question here... why would you literally be boycotting the messenger if Trump gets removed from office? I'm pretty sure Fox News or CBS or whatever are NOT sending armed goons in there to drag him out of the white house themselves... I suspect the armed goons doing the dragging will be a co...

Re: Boycott Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live has a outlived its usefulness. Once again, it's just a vehicle of the Anti-Trump Movement. They keep paying lip service to not offending half its potential audience, but they always go back on their word. Its viewership is way down this year. It is time to boycott the show and i...

At least they got rid of that slapped together, cobbled up Chapman crane blocking the fan's sidelines view, a.k.a. The Booger Mobile. What a menace.

Re: Impeachment

"I was not a direct witness to most of the events described." That is what in the legal system is known as hearsay. It is generally inadmissible. And just who are all these unnamed officials? I don't really see anything more in the complain that we didn't already know from the released transcript o...

Re: Impeachment

It's also troubling that Trump would broach the idea of arresting a member of Congress that is investigating him. "Rep. Adam Schiff illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement, pretended it to be mine as the most important part of my call to the Ukrainian President, and read it aloud to Congress a...

Re: Brad Ausmus & Joe Maddon

I wouldn't rule out San Francisco or San Diego either.

I thought it was fairly classless of the Cubs not to let him close out the season (unless that was what Maddon requested) but it's what I've come to expect now that the Ricketts own the club.

Re: Amazon Echo Buds - Totally wireless earphones

Head-Fi is one of my favorite haunts. I'm also active in the headphones community on Reddit. Learned a lot from them in my short time in this hobby. I'm still starting my search for my customs. So many options. Haven't even gotten the impressions done yet -- still searching for an audiologist out h...

Re: Amazon Echo Buds - Totally wireless earphones

You can pry my Etymotics and my KZ ZST's from my cold dead hands. :P Seriously though, I'm looking forward to trying these out. Might be a future birthday present to myself. So far, the initial response from most of the tech rags has been positive, but they all demoed them during the press event, s...

Re: Scary Thought....

I do believe the "new president" chooses his own VP. Ford did so when taking over for Nixon. Granted Nixon resigned but i believe Pence would be able to choose the person he wants. Pelosi comes into play only if both the president and VP are not capable of filling out the term. I'm not a constituti...

Re: Whistleblower: Trump promising "Favors" to foreign governments

The NYT is reporting the whistleblower is/was a CIA officer stationed at the White House, so Trump may have figured that out when his last rant characterized the whistleblower as a "spy". Waiting for next rant to be along the lines that this is another example of the intelligence community is out to...

Amazon Echo Buds - Totally wireless earphones

Just put in a pre-order for the Amazon Echo Buds announced today. While folks might get geeked up (in a good way or a bad way) about the built-in Alexa voice assistant feature, what sold me was reading the spec's that listed what's pumping the sound in these things. Two Knowles balanced armature dri...

Re: SAFE banking act passes

The SAFE Banking Act just passed the house making it the first cannabis law ever to pass through a federal legislature. The senate is also expected to pass the Bill. It won't be long now before you can buy your cannabis with a credit card. https://damageonsight.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/opedcarto...
