i have a Contour Roam2. I like it. Its super easy to use, just make sure you get a class 10 SD card. I have a class 4 and it's not fast enough to press record with out turning the camera on first, which you are supposed to be able to do.
i went with the Contour over the GoPro because of the bu...

don't remember seeing anyone on their own. most, if not all, on the river are guided. it is a pretty dangerous river. we were there at end of May a couple years back so may not have started high travel season.
fair warning, the water is cold as hell and a huge shock when it hits you....

i have w/ my dad and brothers. it was a good time. we went with Canyoneers. We did the 5 day trip. I would highly recommend it. Only thing is you don't paddle. You just ride in their powered raft. They cook all your meals. Only thing you have to do is set up your tent every night.

I would go with the new moto x. My dad was on an iphone until he just switched to the old moto x. he loves it now because he has more control of it. he's also in love with the full voice control moto has preinstalled. he was beaming this past weekend when he learned how to receive/send texts and...

i use the cable card one from the company. this one works for OTA and will convert to MPEG4 for you to watch on any device. If you want the DVR part you'd have to have a computer, linux or windows will work....

I'm on sprint and just switched myself to the $60 unlimited plan. When i get a new phone i will have to do the monthly payment plan. I saved myself a whole $10/month for my bill with my fiance. Think you did the right thing by sticking with the contract. I probably should have as well especially...

i just moved back here and got my LA license last friday. i showed up. she asked me if i had a previous license in LA. Gave her my SS number. Gave her my GA license and i had a LA license.
I was completely amazed they didn't ask or need proof of living here. GA required me to at least have a...

it is not trash. i'm running 2 of them as HTPCS, which is more than what his dad would be running the PC for. If he takes your recommendations he'll be spending 3x the money he would need to for a glorified email/internet box.
the only reason for an i7 is if you are a gamer or do video/photo ed...
