Music / TaoTronics (and other cheap headphones)
« Last post by Perspective on August 20, 2019, 10:19:45 AM »
Anyone have any experience with this brand or similar?

I understand the sound quality is probably pretty bad. But I'm looking for good wireless noise cancelling headphones to have quiet background music while at work. I'm not too worried about getting the best sound quality. More interested in comfort and decent noise cancellation.

Woah, angry post! I was just asking, dude. My question was not confrontational, I was just curious :) did big Ben have his coffee this morning?

And just FYI - for the most part, I agree. Similar reasons I will rarely step into a Walmart.

Dude, read the fucking news:

1) They pay their workers shit
2) The conditions and pressure in their delivery centers is stupid insane... we don't really need next day or same day delivery.
3) The company doesn't fucking pay federal taxes.  They make billions and don't pay anything in taxes
4) They are literally closing hundreds if not thousands of local businesses. 
5) They do not control their own market.  Do you know how many times people have lifted designs that my wife has made and reposted them on Amazon?  And then Amazon makes it a giant pain in the ass to make a copyright claim and even then doesn't always take shit down and the thief's stores don't get punished... they just take that one design down.  Sometimes.
6) Bezos is a shit person.  You don't have to dig far to figure that out.

Open your eyes.  Amazon makes a lot of stuff really convenient but at what cost?

Why are you saying that Amazon is a terrible company?

Just grab the kids and run while she is in FL.  I'm sure it isn't a crime or anything

Hahaha.  Funny you say that, my girlfriend was like, why don't you just pack up you stuff and move out while she's gone?

We dropped 'cable tv' a while ago.  We were paying ~$155 for tv+internet+1 dvr unit+1 modem.  Now we still get the internet through Spectrum for $70 + $45 for Hulu w/ live tv + $16 for HBO.  We just dropped Netflix and we are considering dropping Amazon prime because Amazon is a terrible company.  So we're paying almost as much as we were but there are benefits to my current setup:

1) Tv in the living room and master bedroom are roku tvs and we have a roku on the tv in the basement, all of which stream everything we want.
2) Hulu has a cloud DVR which is nice and accessible anywhere with no extra devices.
3) Roku interface is awesome regardless of the app you are using.
4) Hulu streaming live is 1000% better than Spectrum streaming options.
5) I can easily upgrade/downgrade Hulu to fit our needs (not the case with Spectrum)
6) The internet with Spectrum now includes a free modem/router combo which is actually a decent device with great range on the wifi.  I have it in my office on the second floor and the kids use it easily in the basement.

So... considering I tried most of the services available, I'm pretty happy.

Last day to apply micah!

ugh, yeah, I don't think I can move right now.  Everything is still so in limbo with the kids and the divorce that hasn't started yet.

Last year I paid $29.99 for 500 Mbps internet because I called and tried to cancel. Once the 12 months were up, I called again and am now paying $34.99 per month for 1 Gbps internet. Theses plans are around $120 per month on the website. It's insane what they charge and how much of a discount they'll give if you say you are cancelling.
