    This is bad advice and may not work at all.
    1. The car charger is designed for 12 to 15 volts input – NOT 9 volts. 9 volts in may not be enough for the charging circuitry to function (of course, this depends on the charger and phone).

    2, Even if the charging circuit does function, it may not regulate the charging voltage properly which could damage the phone. A fresh Alkaline 9 volt battery can provide well over 10 amps of current.

    3. Yes, there’s a chance it will work fine. However, I’m not going to do this with my phone.

    “Hopefully the groin shot means he won’t be able to reproduce AGAIN…”
    Hope ya don’t mind that I fixed it for ya.
    BTW Blaze – this website has the crappiest sign in that I’ve ever seen. Half the time you aren’t signed in when it SHOWS THAT YOU ARE and it will remember your PASSWORD but NOT your NAME. Who in the Hell set this up?
    Please fix this nonsense. Feel free to check out how OTHER web forums work in order to get a clue. Seriously, this is PATHETIC for a website that is owned by a very popular media personality. It’s in YOUR best interest to make this website easy to use for those of us that wish to participate (trolls excluded). Please fix this.

    EDIT: I was replying to stloocardsfan. Notice how my post SHOWED UP ELSEWHERE. Do ya’ think you might be able to fix this issue as well?

    Pathetic…

    They are all connected (Google, CIA, NSA, etc.). There is no true “opt-out” option.

    In fact, the NSA is and has been “sitting on the wire” (using a splitter) for major backbone providers for quite a long time. The internet was set up this way.

    Unfortunately, if you want to use the internet it’s important to understand that ALL network data is being captured and stored; no matter what they claim.

    The key word “rapper” means that I have very little interest in what he has to “say” and absolutely no interest in hearing his “music.”

    I wouldn’t go THAT far. However, I don’t like tattoos. That’s probably why I don’t have any.

    The interesting thing here, is that I’m a male with LONG hair. Some people REALLY hate that people choose to look a certain way that doesn’t “conform” to societal “norms.”

    Seriously, look at commercials or TV in general. Long haired males are made out to be criminals and/or stupid (a certain insurance commercial with a guy wearing a wig is a good example of this).

    I’ve got news for the uninformed – some of us are a lot smarter than the average “sheep” and we choose to look different. It really has nothing to do with being ‘against the man’ or society in general. It’s simply that we tend to look how we like to look – which is different from most people – as seen on TV.

    I play guitar and have for quite a few years. Long hair just feels natural to me and (most) women actually love it. They say it feels good on their thighs if ya’ know what I mean. I certainly wouldn’t want to deprive women of that.

    As much as I despise the POS pResident that is currently occupying the White House; I can’t condone him being shot, nor any of his family members being shot. I just don’t think that is right.

    However, I certainly hope that he suffers immensely for what he has done (and will do) to this country – not to mention race relations – which he has set back 100 years.

    Evidently, the White House doesn’t have bullet-proof glass.

    Why not?

    Precisely.

    He’s made enough that retirement should be an easy choice for him.

    Seriously, how many ‘regular’ people have this option? I don’t have anything against him for being well paid or rich, but I think that he and his family can survive pretty comfortably for the rest of their lives.

    Most of us cannot do that.

    The EPA has nothing better to do.

    Of course, those crappy coiled fluorescent light bulbs that have more mercury and don’t last even as long as a typical incandescent bulb are not a concern for them.

    I found her.

    See the two girls kissing the one girl on the cheek?

    Ann is the one to the right and just behind them. She wearing a dark sweater with the “large white collar” looking design.

    She isn’t a lesbian you nitwit.

    If I was rich, I would do this kinda’ thing all the time.

    I just want to live a comfortable life, but I really don’t need a million-dollar mansion or a collection of Ferrari’s – just a nice humble abode and being able to pay my modest bills is enough for me. Of course, taking an occasional cruise would be fun – but not required.

  • [13] September 26, 2014 at 3:07pm

    While you did the right thing, I tend to agree with you.

    Despite that, I would still have no other choice but to intervene and do as you did. You probably saved that boy from serious injury or even death. I would still do it even if it meant jail time.

    You did the right thing although doing good deeds never seems to go unpunished in this upside-down world.

    Try downloading it directly (not using iTunes) and installing it. You can download it here:

    These people are really, really stupid.

    I loved the pictures though.

    “…the sensor is 99.99% accurate with fingerprint recognition — even with partial prints.”

    That’s .01% less reliable than I would want it to be. But, then again, I think “smart” guns are a terrible idea and in all likelihood the gun will fail when you need it the most.

    “The fact is, Netflix competes with Comcasts own services (streaming and cable), so it is in Comcasts interest to slow Netflix’s traffic (which I am paying for as the consumer) so their service appears to be superior quality.”

    That isn’t the full story, as I said above.

    @ECtech,

    “I hate to break it to you, but you won’t get 50mbps data transfer from most websites and it’s often less than 2mbps.”

    What data center are you using? Mine provides me with a solid 10mbps with a total of 200Mb/s.”

    Please read my post again. I’m sure you know the difference between a WEBSITE and an internet network connection, right?

  • September 11, 2014 at 4:46pm

    Why don’t you tell the the truth?

    Yes, there’s a conflict between Comcast and Netflix – which was caused by Netflix. Comcast is NOT the one at fault here. YES, Netflix WILL have to pay extra fees to Comcast IF they want the additional infrastructure required for the type of network connection to Comcast that THEY want.
