I'm looking for some opinions on flush in-wall speakers.
My living room is essentially our movie room, 135" projector and we're building our own media rack to sit underneath the screen. My father in law is a capable carpenter so he's going to hook us up. However when I mocked up the surround sou...

If you have the ability to afford the $1500 explorder program (likely with another exchange option to send in old model for new one later down the line), do you opt in and buy Google Glass? Does anyone here feel like they'd have practical use for it to use it on a close-to daily basis?

EA has never successfully balanced the ability to play defense vs a scrambling QB.
And this year with slant routes being wide open, did they NEED to put in a fake Heisman Michael Vick? I've yet to beat a guy who uses one.
He's got more speed and acceleration than 95% of the defensive players ava...

I'm disappointed. If Road to the Show is your thing, ask yourself if you enjoy the commentary and play by play before you buy this game.
If you own The Show 12, pop it in, turn off the commentary and try to play a handful of games. If you feel like youre playing baseball in a vacuum, MLB The Show 1...

| Political Talk|| Louisiana Mental Health Program to Cease - Broketec on 1/9/13 at 12:52 pm|
How does the right fair on this one?
Right wants smaller government, wants spending cuts, wants guns to never be infringed upon and then suggests mental health care be a viable solution to weed out the Adam Lanza's of the world.
Is it just a strawman to say mental health is a fix but not champio...

Curious what the GB does.
I never buy used. I have worked and still do somewhat work in the game development industry, so I want to keep all the money flowing to developers and not to re-resalers.
I've got friends who will pay an extra $5 for a new copy just so Gamestop and such aren't making a...

The guy never turns out great recruiting classes.
In fact, he's so bad at it, he had to complain about Urban Meyer using "SEC tactics" when recruiting against him last year.
If he couldn't turn out a top 25 class once in 7 years of using the gentleman's rule of recruiting in the Big 10, how will ...

Brian Bennett does a little bit of TD.com style - "lets blindly compare stats and then lets do it all over again for one common opponent" to justify why Monty Ball should be ahead of Richardson in the Heisman race.
