      audio complications

      Presenter volume is great...
      Talking to someone off camera volume is 10%
      Cannot hear the person off camera, without turn the volume up TOO LOUD for the presenter.
      We don’t all wear headphones to listen to YouTube

      Why not give the person off camera a mic ?

          Speaking of silicon lottery...
          Have anyone thought of using the LMG lan center to test how big variance can be? or are those machines not built with an overclockable chip? Sure 10 cpu's arent much of a sample, but there should be a decent chance of having both a good and bad outlier.
          .... and make it a competition between a couple of employees to get some sort of statistical value into the test ;-)
          Then finally get best, worst and an average system into the hands of a couple of youtubers like GamersNexus and Jays2Cents to see if their best and worst vary as much or more between systems as an average overclocker :)

            Origin is WAAAAY better than the epic games launcher. But not with the micro transactions.

                          Precisely speed traps are meant to encourage people to drive safely not make revenue for the state and police department. This is what their upset about, but in my opinion not telling people your setting traps can on known speeding areas could be considered entrapment. As people who drive wrecklessly will do so even if they where told about them,

                              You can't really see steam, so that's more likely water vapor. :-)

                                        The point of speed traps is to make sure people drive at the speed limit. Its not to fine people. If people know where the traps are then the traps will work just as well since people will slow down for them.

I guess Pear Harbor sucked just a little bit more than I missed you" LOL

                                                            The reason why the speed trap location puts drivers at risk is because everyone will slow down except for the individual that forgot to charge their phone.

                                                                                                  The iPhone 5 is still a great device. I recently picked one up to use as a final resting place for old 32-bit apps, and I'm shocked at how much I like it vs. newer models.

                                                                                                  It's tiny and lightweight, so it's super-comfortable to hold and easy to stuff in a pocket. The flat sides and metal surfaces make it far less slippery than the rounded glass on newer phones, so I don't feel like I have to cling tightly onto it to avoid dropping it.

                                                                                                  Battery life is good, LTE and GPS are plenty fast, and current apps are only slightly slow in a few spots. Plus they "somehow" found room for a freaking headphone jack. It's from the tail end of the Jobs era, and the design language really speaks to me in a way that the newer stuff doesn't (and not just stuff from Apple)

                                                                                                  Not saying I'd switch back to it as my daily driver, but I think if anyone is still using theirs that way, they might do just fine to stick with it a while longer.
