bluetooth dongle to plug into my ipod


stereo bluetooth headset, what's cool is that it comes with a mic and you can use your own headphones.  too bad my pda doesn't have the a2dp proflie cuz this thing works fucking great with my laptop and the dongle.

oh yeah my phone doesn't have a2dp either.. time to get a new phone ;)

Finally, I upgraded from my Nokia 2100 ($25 resale price, after 3 years) and got a Treo 650.  I love it.  $345 for used one in mint condition + leather case from craigslist.  

Cheap plan + Unlimited data only costs $50 a month, and I can post to jphip from the coffee shop.  I have truly gone to heaven.  Next upgrades: Invisible Shield body protector, and a 2GB SD card.  I thought I would want a SDIO WiFi card, but with unlimited data, who needs it.  Only bummer is that all the good essential software (voice dialling, mp3 ringtones) costs money...

Thinkpad R52

I finally upgraded from my Thinkpad T23 (nearly 5 years old!) to a Thinkpad R52.  1.86Ghz, 15" display, DVD/CD-R drive, and 512MB upgraded to 1.5GB of RAM.  The entire thing cost about $615 in flawless condition off ebay, along with a useless laptop bag and even more useless dock.  The RAM upgrade cost me about $50.  

The only thing this thing lacks is Bluetooth and IEEE 1394/Firewire.

I got a new graphics card as well. I only got it earlier this week and it's already gone down in price since!

Just taking advantage of AMD price drop, I grabbed a 4600 X2 to upgrade my old 3000.

 
They're pretty cool, if you've never seen a 939 check this out:

I got a new toy :P

Creative Zen Vision:M
I'd been debating on this or an Ipod, with each one having it's list of pros and cons making it really tough to decide.
But when I went to the shop and had a look at the Zen and tried it out, basically one thing sold it. DivX, Xvid, Mpeg1/2, WMV basically copy and paste and the thing plays them. KICKASS! I put on my Rika OPV and it just PLAYS!!! Just like that!
 
Screw Ipods and converting all your vids to h264 just to play them.
 
Anyway, I'm still in process of testing all it's features. One of it's downfalls would be the battery life though. It's been tested to only last about 7hours playing music so. Meh that's plenty for me anyway.
I'm just so impressed it plays divx and xvid so well. I can watch Prison Break at work or something stupid like that lol. Even though I could just it on computer at work >.>
 
The earphones are pretty crappy but I got some Ultimate Ears coming in the mail soon to replace them :D
 
Here's another pic of a dorama, you can even read the hard subs :D

They look a bit bright but that's just my camera doing that.

These are SCREENSHOTS! taken in Powerdvd from the videofiles it creates.
