  1. Ok I am nearly getting there. It seems a very US product in terms of the Netflix usage which might not be available online.I suspect that the system has other uses like it can access the internet, sync with your email, utilize iphone/ipad apps etc which would be very useful if you didnt have an ipad or simply want a larger screen (not sure how the mouse/keyboard works). So the PC/MAC usage or 'Mac ecosystem' as you call it gives it more sense. I suspect if you hack it though that you might lose half the added extras. As a pure wifi media player (especially in Thailand) it is not very competiti
  2. who wants cables when you go wireless? I guess it makes sense if you dont have a computer. Why dont you simply have a wireless connection to your TV and then use airplay on your ithing. I am not sure why you bother to download something to an ithing to watch it on the TV unless it is to travel. If you didnt have wifi or you were in a hotel say, connecting to a TV via a cable can be a good idea. A cable is easier to carry around than an Apple TV which would also need a cable to the TV as well as wifi. And the cable even charges the ithing. Look I am not an anti Apple person. I have 4 or 5 nanos
  3. I am still slightly confused what the 'magical' part is. For instance I have 11 terabyte hard disks with HD, films, music, music videos etc that can be simply plugged into a TV. You can get this at Panthip. Does the Apple TV give you access to NetFlix or external TV stations not available over the internet. I dont really understand what it does that you cant do already? It would be great if you could use it to gain access to US or UK TV feeds.
  4. Why dont you just plug your iphone/ipad/ipod into your TV?
  5. How desperate is it financially in terms of we can see how many people are actually online compared to two years ago. Cost cant be high but the site is clearly struggling against the big players. Facebook etc. Is it still viable with the Mods etc and the turnover of premiums? Or is it getting marginal? I only say that because you can change your business plan if it is not. I have no idea of the revenue structure but it isnt moving forward.
  6. I would strongly disagree with this concept and simply believe that people do not understand the underlying strengths of the Thai economy. Over the last ten years there is little doubt that Thailand has been one of the most successful economies in the world. Just because someone is ill-educated does not mean they are stupid. If you refuse to understand the underlying dynamics of the Thai economy that is fine. If you wish to see it as a failed economy you simply dont understand basic economics. Maybe people should understand Germany's economy first. I know it doesnt come down to education wheth
  7. I know this is all about Thai corruption etc but I do really wish some people would actually give Thailand some credit. I honestly cannot think of a single country that has emerged through the financial crisis in a better position than Thailand. Ok China has grown more but it is simply credit driven. Thailand has a twin surplus, strong growth, very strong fundamentals across the board. It has received absolutely no credit. Some people think its currency is overvalued while they have spent US$70bn suppressing it. Rather irritatingly they hold US$160bn of forex reserves including US$50bn of USTs
  8. i thought that at least two mobiles was the norm for girls now !! :roll: :roll: Well difficult to know whether you simply understand the concept or whether it reflects the girls you date. Still the research would be far more interesting if you added to it by researching the number of sexual partners that a girl with an iphone and an android had. My guess is that Nokia comes into the equation. Namely a Nokia/iphone combination could be perfect. I would also guess that a Blackberry combination might be verging on being too professional. BTW shagging a girl with two phones doesnt count as two
  9. ehhhh ..... 10 partners by the time u r 30 !!! u'd be better off binning the f**king iPhone and getting out into the real world !! :roll: :roll: :roll: Oh please.... it isnt telling you to buy an iphone. Simply telling you that female iphone users are more slutty... (BTW the girls with two mobile phones are usually the best bet.)
  10. Actually years but not all that many. You see Fed policy is zero short term rates and sat 3% 10 year UST rates. So people get nothing for deposits and the banks buy 10 year USTs (good for financing the deficit.) The really neat thing is that USTs are zero risk weighted in terms of capital adequacy, so you can buy as many as you can finance without capital. Which is of course why you cant get a loan in the US unless it is to bolster the housing market and guaranteed by the Government through the two Fannies. The reason bankers should be afraid of Elizabeth Warren is that if Americans come to t
  11. You call that a plan? Sounds like total and utter insanity to me. Still post the links. It will be exciting to see how things turn out. Why is that insane? I can't see the cops finding the cam, and if they do and are able to put 2 and 2 together (long shot), they won't give 2 sh*ts as long as they get their 2 hundred baht... Just don't start releasing the videos until you have a few recorded. Once they get out, cops *might* start giving a sh*t and looking for cams. I meant 'insane' in terms of the concept of showing 20 videos of yourself handing over money to the cops. Seems to me about as san

  14. how much? Im just about to buy a 52" flat screen for studio. Would like one too. disks for Bt4k which have 100 blue Ray hi definition films on them. He has several. I have the details somewhere if anyone is interested "Yes please" Coming back to this subject. First of all the shop in question has 12 different 3.5" 1 terabyte hard disks each filled with exclusively 'blue-ray' films for a cost of Bt3500 per disk. Mostly there are 100 films per disk but a couple of disks have 'full rips' which limits them to about 24 films. The others are compressed (I think to MKV) which reduces their size to ab
  15. A German supporting Holland? whatever next? Don't you remember the German song 'only dustbin men wear orange.'
