  1. Finally got mine today but neither have an amp nor an adapter to hook it up to laptop. It's very pretty to look at though. The hf2 also took forever to ship, and email response time has been absolutely horrible, but at least Todd was kind enough to eat up the additional shipping costs to China.
  2. Japan would be nice. Haven't been there yet.
  3. Not too many, around 50-100, and Todd says he ships around 50 a week.
  4. Al, what I really liked about the PS-1 was the really liquid midrange - as overused as the description may be. I don't really know how to describe it, but through the PS-1 the music just sounded really life-like with good weight behind the notes. Although the frequency balance and tone were a bit odd, or rather my ears were just biased towards Sennheisers back then, the weight and "roundedness" in the midrange made the PS-1 really special. Does the HF-2 retain some of that quality?
  5. This is why I shouldn't frequent these forums. Just wanted to check whether there has been any new headphones other than the HD 800 only to find out about this HF-2 and place my order an hour later. And I was so content with my iPhone/ESW9 combo.
  6. Unexpected and greatly appreciated, thanks a lot guys. I broke the screen of iPhone two weeks ago, ruined the screen of my Macbook over Christmas (thanks mother for opening the roof window when my Macbook was lying under it) and broke the ESW9 this week (still don't know how). But today, my replacement screen for the iPhone came and a project was approved, so it's a good start into a new life year. And happy birthday Jahn!
  7. Omnifocus 1.1 for the iPhone will FINALLY bring Bonjour sync so I can stop using that Apache Webdav hack. Supposed to be released soon.
  8. No address book synchronization (unlike the real Skype) is of course a big minus (even more so since iPhone doesn't have copy paste), the login interface could be improved and buddy names are not editable, but other than that it works as advertised.
  9. Just came out: http://www.fring.com/download/iphone/ Multi-chat tool like IM+ but one that also allows VOIP calls using Skype and apparently even SkypeOut. Will give it a try later but it looks promising.
  10. Just got myself a factory unlocked iphone from Belgium for 615 EUR. That pretty much depletes my gadget budget for the rest of the year. Can't wait to use Omnifocus on the iphone though.
  11. This campaign could turn into something pretty good. First of all, everybody's talking about it now. It's easy for Apple to do a "Mac vs. PC" attack campaign from their market challenger position, but Microsoft can't do that and they can't run a campaign too focused on features either because that'y not their only target group. Also, being cool or sexy has never been part of MSFT's strategy. From TechCrunch: In an email we’ve obtained from Microsoft SVP Bill Veghte to all employees, he talks about the goals of the campaign. The overall goal is to inspire consumers and “tell the story of how Windows enables a billion people around the globe to do more with their lives today.” This first phase, he says, “is designed to engage consumers and spark a new conversation about Windows – a conversation that will evolve as the campaign progresses, but will always be marked by humor and humanity.” I think they're on to something. This time they've hired a top ad agency, Crispin, which has revived some brands before (Burger King, Mini). Anyways, I don't understand sure why MSFT needs a marketing campaign anyway. Those who already have MSFT software won't need more of it and those who don't already moved on because they got sick of MSFT software.
  12. I guess it's a big risky to trust an anonymous source and two of the guys didn't seem like people to do such a thing.
  13. Time to call the mob then! Clients most likely wouldn't tell these kind of things. That part of the company is an immigration service provider and like personal banking, the clients usually care more about their personal consultant than the actual company behind it, since the consultant is the one that gets the job done in the end. It'd also be weird for the boss to call the clients asking whether his branch offices have defected. He's already send spies posing as fake client to the branch offices to inquire last week, but no results so far. Anyways, no big deal about the picture. It's just one piece of the puzzle. Thanks guys
  14. Business in China is fun. Unfortunately not. That's the picture the anonymous employee sent and obviously (s)he didn't leave a reply address. Hm, I guess the picture really is too small. Too bad.
  15. Any way to tell? My uncle runs a company and received an anonymous email from one of his employees saying that these people (3 branch office heads) opened their own company and are channeling my uncle's clients there. And this picture is supposed to be proof.
  16. So, I went to watch the US basketball game. Turns out it was the women's final. Anyway, it was still a very enjoyable game.
  17. Today was a fantastic finals night. Just saw the 4x100 relay, the pole vault and some other good events in the stadium. Great, great stuff. The relay WR was absolutely amazing and the pole vault face-off was also breathtaking with a Russian and an Australian guy fighting till end, with both always clearing the height on their last jump. And then the Australian also broke the OR on his last and third jump. The crowd went absolutely crazy today. Tomorrow, I'm going to see the US vs. Spain basketball finals. Somebody gave me tickets today. Yep, life is good.
