Dr.Dre Beats Headphones consumer SCAM!

Dr. Dre beats headphones by the infamous scam company Monster (not monster energy) are very popular but is it really a good deal for $175-399? NO!
I personally can not stand they sell HDMI cables for televisions for $110 that they say produces a better image quality than the $5 ones. This just like their overpriced headphones is just a big scam.

I have personally heard the beats and the beats pro and they were honestly not bad but the professional audio company Sennheiser for the same price makes much better sounding headphones, granted they don't look as appealing to the young people the like the beats do but they have a much more high quality mature look.

More ranting about Monster. They sell a $300 "Clean power" thing for you're home theater system that supposedly provides a cleaner power signal? Give me a break lol!

Verdict? Don'dt buy anything from monster I cant stand that company!!!

Apple computer? A good value or overpriced?

So for $2500 you can get a brand new Macbook pro 17" laptop with a core i7 and 4gb of ram sound like a good deal what so ever? NO! Sure the customer service is great and they will replace the laptop for "free" if it breaks under warranty but this 2.5k laptop has the hardware specifications of a $600 Windows computer, yes only $600!

That means you are paying $1900 for the customer service warranty and the classic shiny glowing apple! Granted some people adore the os I have to admit it is a very clean OS and high quality laptop but the value is non existent!

For example for $950 my neighbor just purchased an Asus laptop with the same specs as the mac but 16gb of ram vs a mere 4 and an ssd drive! If you want the mac to come with the ssd expect to pay close to 3 grand.

For those of you who don't know SSD drives are new storage devices that will replace harddrives in the future as they are 5-20x faster.

Thanks for viewing!

The Future of Television!

Were all familiar with the plasma vs LED vs LCD war but in the next few years we should be seeing a new type of TV called OLED showing up on the market.

Whats the advantage of OLED (organic light emitting diode)? Well there is no backlight unlike LCD and LED TVs when a black image is shown on the screen the pixels can individually turn off producing a pure black image with no back light bleed. If you own or have seen a Samsung galaxy phone you may have noticed how nice the screen looks this is because is uses amoled technology with no backlight. Another advantage is that these screens have the ability to be flexible which will result in a whole wide range of uses of this new display type!

Thailand Flood drastically increases Harddrive price!

Prices were reaching an all time low for all sizes until a monsoon hit Thailand. Prices are hovering around 50-60 for a terabyte (1000GB) hard drive now the prices are closer to $140. And its not just Western Digital's hard-drives Segate and Samsung also have manufacturing facilities in Thailand that have been effected by the flood.

Best solution? Buy and SSD drive instead as the prices are almost the same now :)

Hopefully in a few months the prices go back down.

First 16 Core CPU

We have all heard of quad core and the newly released 6 and 8 core cpu's but AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) Is stepping it up and offering a 16 core cpu designed for server use. For a relatively cheap price of $600 compared to $3500 for intel's 8 core this cpu is going to be very popular amongst server users.
