    Olympics livestream

    Sorry if this is the wrong thread to post this in but I don't know where else to post. I'm trying to live stream the Olympics on nbcolympics.com but it keeps saying I'm location restricted which doesn't make sense to me since I'm in the USA. I'm not even sure I'm logged in cause I can't find the login button. I have comcast cable if that matters. Does anyone know how to make this damn thing work? Thanks

    Tesla Acquires SolarCity for $2.6 Billion

    I thought Elon Musk already owned solar city since he founded it or did he not have a controlling interest?

    I think I'll hold out for the Titan P. Thanks for the advice.

    980ti or wait for "Titan P'?

    I was going to wait for the "Titan P" (or whatever they call it) but someone posted an amazing deal on a Evga 980ti FTW for $399 with 50 dollar mail in rebate. I want to do 2 way SLI which means i could get 2 980ti's for the price of one 1080 and God knows how many for the price of a Titan P. I'm going to go to 3 1080p or 3 1440 monitors depending on if my GPU can run them . Should I go ahead and get the 980ti's or hold out for the Titan P? Any input is appreciated. Thanks

    Confused about lenses

    Does that mean i don't want a f/2.8 lense? I just want to take pictures of my brother and sister while they play sports (gymnastics and baseball) I don't want a lense that will make them look out of focus if I don't get the focus right since I'm still learning.

    Confused about lenses

    I'm not sure I understand. I've read that it's a good lense for sports cause it has a big aperture and that's helpful for nighttime/indoor sports.

    Confused about lenses

    I plan on getting the Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6 for wildlife and a 70-200mm f/2.8 for sports plus a mid range lense for everyday shots.

    Confused about lenses

    Would you recommend me buying only FX lenses to "future proof" my lense collection?

    Confused about lenses

    I have a nikon D5300 with the kit lenses 18-55mm and 55-300mm. I want to buy some new lenses but I also want to be able to use them on a future camera like the D500 or whatever is similar to it at the time I buy it. I've read several articles on the DX or FX formats but can't understand it for the life of me. I don't understand the difference between full frame and crop. How can one lense (DX) make something look "smaller" while another makes it look "normal" (FX)? If I buy a FX lense will it work on a DX camera and vice versa? Dumb this down as much as possible please Thanks

    Thin laptop with long battery life

    That's what I thought too but it's just so hard to think about.

    Thin laptop with long battery life

    I forget the name of the laptop but it lasted about a year maybe year and half and the screen completely died. I had to use an external monitor till I could get a new laptop. Over heated too. I've gone through or tried to use at least 3 or 4 printers which made me want to jump off the roof cause you can't connect to them no matter what you do. The epson I had for a little bit (it somehow disappeared during a move) worked flawlessly.
  13. I'm looking for a laptop that is: -thin -long battery life -track pad with clickable buttons -i7 and maybe discrete graphics (not a huge deal) -14 inch is preferable but 15.6 will do if necessary -Budget up to $1500 U.S I'm considering the Dell XPS 15 but not fully sold. I hate HP (every product I've bought from them has broken) so they're out. Lenovo worries me a little because of SuperFish even though they say it's gone. I also read an article saying spy agencies won't let their employees use Lenovos for fear of hacked hardware. I'm by no means a high end official but I enjoy my privacy. I know this list might be near impossible or even impossible to fulfill but hopefully you guys can help me out some. I appreciate any input.
  14. How would I go about importing the pictures to the GoPro editor?
  15. I have no idea what software to use. I have the GoPro software that I use for my GoPro but that's my only camera software currently and I don't think that works with my DSLR.
