6) I wanna buy a new wallet, but can't find one that I can carry around proudly...So I had an idea... I could buy a plain wallet, get a few patches I like, and sew\iron them on to the wallet :D So it would be a somewhat custom wallet...but I realized something...If I just sew\iron the patch on, eventually the strings will start to break (because they'll be exposed and rub against my pants, hands, etc) and it'll be ruined :/ Does anyone know a method I can use to prevent this?...Something like laminating the patch onto the wallet...

P.S
Even if you don't know a method, ideas are also really appreciated :D

...I clicked on link expecting some awesome machine...totaly lost my trust bro <_<...

P.S
If you need to ask a question, go for it :P But would still appreciate answers to mine as well :3

**EDIT**
To answer your question, I don't think so...its probably because a flip phone is obviously a phone. So dumb people won't get it mixed up with a mp3 player or some type of ipod...Asia does have awesome tech, so should have awesome phones...

@baka, hi-jacked bitch :P


Up until 2010 they were, however the last two years have seen a rapid shift to the uni body smart phones. Still flip phones remain popular as many are just flip-smartphones, I know some have Android OS. Yet, they appear to be on the decline!

If you pay attention/watch lots from the last few seasons, unibody phones are appearing more in anime.

I wish I had some sources. However I do remember reading many Japanese have both types of mobiles, so it is hard to get accurate figures.

7) The GPU I'm getting only has a mini HDMI input...Is they're any differance between a mini HDMI, and a regular HDMI? Quality, Audio, etc...

8) If I buy a Blu-Ray from Jap, will it play on my Blu-Ray player I bought here in the U.S.A? I know how DVD Region works, but not how Blu-Ray Region does :3

Nope, no difference (other than adapter size, obviously).

Depends on the Blu-Ray. If it's region-locked, then you're restricted by your Blu-Ray player -- thankfully, however, Japan and North America are grouped into the same region. A lot of Blu-Ray discs are region-free anyway, though.

9) I'm getting a 128gb SSD for my OS... but if further down the road I find that 128gb is NOT enough, can i transfer my OS & all my applications to a larger drive? Or will I need to purchase another OS for my new larger drive?

I... wait, what? :huh:

If you want to move your entire OS to a different drive, you're going to need to reinstall everything... but you won't need to buy a new OS to do that. You'd just use your old install disc.

You can, however, simply get a secondary drive if/when you fill up your first (provided you have enough free SATA slots), meaning you can just install additional programs there instead.

Baka. :sweat:

Don't programs open\run faster when installed to the same drive as the OS? Or if I get another SSD drive for programs, will they open the same as if they were on the same drive as the OS?

No.

will they open the same as if they were on the same drive as the OS?


Yup, they'll be just as fast (provided SSDs are the same speed, though you wouldn't notice a difference even if they weren't). ;)

10) What makes my internet faster? I know the internet plan I have is the MAIN thing, but what can I do to improve speeds? Does the modem I have matter at all? Does the Router I'm using matter? Do the ethernet cables connecting things matter? Besides upgrading my internet plan, what can I do/buy to increase my internet speeds?

P.S
A friend of mine gets 400kbps download speeds, and 80kbps upload speeds....his plan is (if I remember correctly) 12mb down & 2mb up with comcast...His Modem is a TINY little thing (about the size of an apple, but flat)...Is his Modem possibly effecting\bottlenecking his speeds?

P.S.S
DOUBLE DIGITS xD

10) While ethernet cables can have varying bandwidth, you'd be hard-pressed to find cables that would bottleneck commercial internet packages. Moreover, yes -- old modems/routers can throttle your maximum connection speed. Try and get something supports the 802.11n protocol (versus only a/b/g). Beyond that, the only way you can "make your internet faster" without upgrading your internet plan is to ensure you aren't utilizing 100% of your upload bandwidth.

As for the P.S., keep in mind that MB (megabytes) and Mb (megabits) are abbreviations for different units. 1 MB = 8 Mbs, so 12 megabits per second (Mbps) is 1.5 megabytes per second (MB/s; also 1500KB/s). So if you're sure about your numbers, then yes -- his internet is slower than it should be.

Router can make a big difference. Some routers don't have the RAM and CPU power to host a lot of different connections, which could slow you down. Firmware can play a difference, too. Asus used to have a reputation of having powerful routers on the hardware level, but their firmware held them back. Nowadays things seem to be a lot better.

So to work out the speed of what your meant to be getting for internet you divide it by 8? so if you have 80MB connection you should be getting 10MB download speed? also how do you calculate upload speed?

Also can someone explain to me how 1gb can be 1024 MB and 1000MB I was always teach at college that 1mb was 1024 KB, 1gb was 1024MB and 1TB is 1024 GB can someone explain why people say it is 1000?
