    posted a message on why do people always make you skype them
    Skype is amazing for people who simply want to chat. It's basically the replacement of the old MSN Messenger. It obvious is not as good as Teamspeak or Mumble for gaming (delay, memory, etc), but it's easy to set up, and common for the average gamer.

    posted a message on Android Questions
    1. You do not need an SD card to download ROM's. It is defaulted to saving in your "Downloads" folder on your phone storage. You can then use the Emulator to select the file directly in the downloads folder. Also, you do not need a rooted device to play on a Emulator.

    2. The Home Screen launcher and the App Launcher are the same. I haven't heard the term "App Launcher" before though. A few good Launchers are: Go Launcher, Nova Launcher, Apex Launcher, and Holo Launcher (one I currently use). Most of them are paid apps. A launcher is definetly recommended as you can't custom many things on the home page in the Settings.

    3. Nexus phones are great quality and are amazing for the price. Stock Android is definetly good to have. Not only do you get the updates quicker, Stock Android also looks the best (imo) and has generally more features. It also depends on what you like. Different phones have different Cameras, etc. Some might look better to you, or you like having bigger screen or a removable back. The Nexus 5 doesn't look as it is going to be t that great though. I recommend the HTC One.

    4. My current phone is 4.5", which I feel is perfect in my hand (I have large hands). Most recent phones are around 5", but it depends on personal preference. The S4 also holds quite comfortably in my hand (5"), but I still prefer a 4.5".

    5. Pretty much all apps are supported on all phones. If it's a recent phone, then I think everything will work. The only limitations I know of are the Android Version where some apps are Gingerbread 2.2+ or something.

    I currently own a Samsung Galaxy S2X rooted with AOKP 4.2.2.

    posted a message on Who Still Likes Tobuscus
    Personally I find Toby himself as a really funny person. He seems like a really cool guy that's nice to be around. I honestly cannot watch TobyGames though. It seems like he "tries to hard" to be funny, like he overstresses some jokes and it just isn't all that funny. I find his music and the videos on his main channel quite funny, and his vlogs are pretty cool too. It's just it seems Toby is better off as a comedian than a gamer.

    posted a message on Natural Talents. Have any?
    I have a natural leadership ability and I can easily gain the trust of people. You could say that's a good or bad thing.

    There are so many friends who don't know what personal space is. -.-

    I'm also really funny and I can talk to anyone without being awkward. Also a good learner.

    Unlocked CPU, a better motherboard that costs less, a newer, faster and cheaper hard drive and a cheaper GPU that's pretty much on par with a 7950 unless he games on three monitors.

    PCPartPicker part list: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/10602

    CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($229.99 @ Amazon Canada)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($119.99 @ Canada Computers)
    Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($52.99 @ Newegg Canada)
    Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.99 @ NCIX)
    Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB Video Card ($253.00 @ Vuugo)
    Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($48.88 @ Canada Computers)
    Power Supply: Rosewill Hive 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($69.99 @ Newegg Canada)
    Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($16.99 @ Canada Computers)
    Total: $861.82


    He doesn't need to overclock, and the Motherboard you posted is more expensive (?). The hard drive is good and I think the video card would probably suit him more, but the 7950 comes with free games with it.

    posted a message on Need Build for Friend
    Haven't been here in a while, so I'm rusty on builds. Well my friend needs a build ASAP, and he has a budget of $900 CDN. He will be playing games like Dota 2, and Far Cry and Metro: Last Light. He does not need peripherals (monitor, mouse) and he does not need an OS.

    This is a build I came up with myself, I haven't been updated on the "good parts" so I'm a little rusty.

    posted a message on What is your view on Adblock and Adfly?
    I personally have Adblock installed, but only active on sites like thepiratebay to block off inappropriate ads. I don't think that adblock is a bad thing, as in no one likes being "forced" to see ads everywhere, like during commercials a lot of people just like go do something else because they don't care about the ads. Adfly on the other hand is a great way for modders or artists to make a bit of money but not actually taking money from other people. On the other hand, I really hate when people use Adfly for things that they didn't make, for example I saw this adfly link inside an adfly link inside another link to another money making link site. I click Adfly links for things like mods, but direct links for others.

    posted a message on Why do people love Robert Downing Jr. ?
    I think people like him mainly because he is pretty good looking and is very comedic. I do agree with you that he does seem sort of like a douche bag, but hey:

    I'm scared to click on that link.
    Also, OP, I think that you should start introducing yourself to us on the Forums before posting your YouTube channel here. It would be nice to know something about someone that I'm going to watch the videos of.



    It just a random site with like a bunch of memes and the trolololo guy singing.
