  1. Hello there,


    I work for MFA Inc, and the company has instituted new cell phone policies. Our store is looking to invest in some bluetooth speakerphones for our pickups. I have a few things I want to clear up before deciding on a purchase. If anyone has any know how or has had experience with these devices please give some insight!


    1. Memory. We have multiple different people driving these pickups at random times. We can't mess around with setting our phones up each and every time we get in the pickup. Will these devices be able to remember upwards of 6 or so different phones? So that we can just turn on our bluetooth, hop in the pickup, and have them work.


    2. What is a good price range to ensure that the speakerphone we get is good quality?


    Thanks for your time!!

  2. Working on my friend's computer. Upon startup, Vista loading screen occurs then the loading bar locks up and you get the BSOD stating you should check for viruses, remove any newly installed hdds or hdd controllers, and check for corruption. I removed the HDD and checked it for errors, it is fine. WIth the hard drive still out, I booted the computer with a WIndows XP Setup CD. When the screen reaches "Starting Windows" after it loads all of the necessary setup files (at the beginning, right after you boot from the CD), it gives me the same exact BSOD.


    I have removed RAM and used known good stick. Removed video card and used IGP. That is about all of the minimizing I can do. Only thing left would be trying a different mobo or cpu which I do not have. Would it be safe to say there is a problem with the motherboard? Possibly the hard drive controller? I have dug through the BIOS, but being it is a Gateway there are not any options to mess with regarding controller. I am considering telling him he can purchase a new motherboard and see if that fixes the problem, as that is the only route I can see. However I would like to hear alternate opinions on the matter.


    Thank you.

  3. Nice looking pictures. My Sony Alpha 100 is starting to get a little old, make me wanna shop around for one myself lol

    Well the A33 is a great buy if Price/Performance is important imo. Not quite as many lenses/accessories as Nikon or Canon but that's not a huge issue. I'm looking at getting the 35mm f1.8 Prime Lens for the basketball games and other general use.


    I absolutely love that dog pic. :thumbsup: Mind if i borrow it for a desktop?

    Haha go right ahead man. It's currently my background as well.

  4. I ended up going with the Sony A33 and I'm very happy with it! It's handles the poor indoor lighting at our high school's gym like a champ, and is great for landscapes.


    Here's some photos I've taken with it..







  5. Hey guys it has been a little while since I've made a post, but I'm back and have a slight problem I need help with. I have been wanting to get a dslr for a while now.i have been eyeing the Sony A33 Digital-SLT for a while now. It sits about $700 minus tax. It looks like a good camera but I hear lots of good things about Canon and Nikon offerings in the same range. Is the Sony a good buy or am I better off going with one of the other two brands? If you have any better choices for me I'm all ears! I'm looking to do just about everything with the camera, but mostly pics of my brothers sports events and nature photography.


    Thanks for your time!

  6. I would do the same. See what happens after a clean install. I have Zune open 24/7 on my laptop and I have no issues, even after sleep/hibernation cycles and it staying open it works fine. It starts up instantly with no slowdown holding my 12-13GB music library.


    Edit: It's been a while since I've posted.. and I notice that my signature has been nuked haha

  7. I have a 2000 Chevrolet S10 Pickup. It's very basic as far as features go. It's a 5 speed manual tranny with a 2.2L I4. It has 205K miles lol so it's definitely getting up there. I'm in desperate need of new u-joints and new plugs/wires. Just replaced the alternator (i blame high mileage and subwoofer.. lol) and the starter. Other than that it's running great, not burning a drop of oil. I have a JVC KD-HDR20 head unit powering my 4 speakers and a Rockford Fosgate P300-1 424Watt RMS 1200Watt Max Mono Amp powering an MTX Thunder Thin 65 12" 400Watt RMS subwoofer. It sounds pretty great and I hit 130dB at the shop that put it in. Here's some pics after a wash (and a 20mile HWY drive back home.. lol) These pics were taken with my phone so they aren't upmost quality lol















  8. Yea Engadget is where I found out about this as well. I believe the N1 is just not sold by Google now, but still sold internationally by HTC. I guess I can just wait for reviews of the screen hopefully, and see how it looks. I have a Zune HD with it's OLED screen and I absolutely love the quality of it. I hope the Super LCD lives up to the hype.

  9. So due to the AMOLED screen shortage US Cellular has delayed the launch of the HTC Desire. I am looking to move away from Sprint and to US Cellular because Sprint has no 3G coverage where I live (small out of the way town with a single US Cellular tower in the town). Now HTC is going to be putting their new "Super" LCD screens in the Desire which they claim are just as good as AMOLEDs. What are your thought on this? I personally don't see how an LCD can compare to an OLED except for the shortcomings of direct sunlight for the AMOLED.

  10. Yea I'm definitely not planning on buying anything from ebay or cragslist. I'll most likely stick with Crutchfield. I'm looking at the Rockford Fosgate Punch P300-1. It's 300watt but it's supposedly really underrated as well. Only $200 so that's not a bad deal really. Just waiting to sell the parts from my desktop so I can put some of those funds towards my system :(

  11. So I purchased my JVC KD-HDR20 head unit and I am loving how much better my system sounds, even on the stock speakers (which aren't terribly bad) in my 2000 Chevy S10 Pickup. However I'm looking for some oomph in the low end now. My friend has an MTX TT65 12" that I am looking to purchase. However I need to find an amplifier for it. AFAIK the sub is 400Watt RMS at 2ohms. Is it necessary to purchase a matching amplifier? or is it ok to run the sub on an amp with lower wattage and possibly 4 ohms and not 2. Amps that give 400watts that I've seen are a little higher than what I would like to pay, but if they are necessary for the best sounding and least risk of damaging the components then I will settle and get one.


    Thanks in Advance

  12. Computer sold as a whole, sorry anyone who was in line for the parts. Fans and capture card still on the table.


    Black Magic Intensity Pro (video capture device) - $160

    I have used this on and off for about 2 months.



    Just won these fans in the Remembering Verran Contest. However as I won't have a desktop I don't have anything to use them in. They are unopened.


    NF-P14 FLX 140mm Case Fan (140mm size, fits 120mm spaces, 3 speed) - $20



    NF-S12B 120mm Case Fan (3 speed) - $15


  13. All of the function keys are operational. The brightness keys show the brightness meter when I hit them, it just doesn't move.


    And no I have not checked for an updated bios, could that potentially fix it?


    Edit: I already have the most up to date BIOS
