||short answer, the bionic simply b/c for me, i would love the laptop attachment not the thunderbolt.. if it's not dual core it's not cool but seriously, it's a good phone, but it's going to be a dinosaur faster than these other phones.. as for the newer phones coming out like the bionic, incred 2, etc. i would wait.. phones that come out are usually glitchy and have a few kinks that have to be worked out. that being said the bionic is coming out after the atrix so hopefully any problems w/ the atrix have been solved.

||having had really strict asian parents I can kind of understand.. even though my parents were never this strict.. idk man, if it's your money, I say this is a time where you should just buy it and not listen to your parents.. everyone else is right, whats the worse they can do? just make sure your take the tags off right after you buy it so they can't return it, throw away the receipt too, good luck lol

||The board arrived yesterday and damn, this guy takes care of his stuff. First off, he ships really fast and really protects his gear (used pipe insulation around the edges). The board is in awesome condition, better than how he described. Very highly recommended, the guys a legit seller. Thanks a bunch shwazy

||You can find a comparable board between almost any of the major snowboard companies. That being said, the only reason I would recommend Burton (slightly) over any other company is for the resale value. But, if you're not going to buy a "beginner board" you can forget that last part. I learned on a softer, twin board that was on the shorter end of the spectrum. I personally think this helped me simply b/c I felt like I had more control and when I was learning both edges I had trouble with toe side and that's where it was nice to have a twin shaped board b/c whenever I tried to follow my friends down the hill I would end up having to go heelside whenever I wanted to slow down meaning I would end up going goofy for a little bit (falling leaf status). But, like some of these earlier posts, it might be worth it to just buy an intermediate-ish deck and just progress on that (make sure you really want to snowboard though, I've seen a decent number of people buy gear and never go again). Pricing/quality is honestly pretty fair with any company. You pay more for the tech with any brand and (I'm pretty sure) every major company has a solid warranty policy which in my mind translates to quality if they're willing to stand behind their product. Used isn't a bad option either (check the classifieds or cl).

||I figured this would be more organized than sticking it in the "Learn to Snowboard" thread. The title basically explains it. I don't know if the staff will even see this thread, but I thought this would maybe help Doug with some new video ideas and would help get our ideas out so that we can have some of our questions answered in video form, which I think is usually more helpful than plain text. First, I'd like to thank Doug and whoever else does the videos with him for making these (and for those who don't know what I'm talking about; Trusnow Instructional Videos). I know they've helped my riding and helped me learn more about all the other aspects of snowboarding (way more than most of the random youtube videos I've seen). And, as I learn more I end up with more questions, so I guess I'll start the brainstorming (and if you know of a video that does a good job, please post it). -a new waxing/tuning video -something about how a boot should fit and the pros/cons of different laces

||i can't speak too much about how the pink iridium does on the mountain, but people definitely can't see your eyes when there's light hitting the lens. same goes for the black iridium, but with both lenses, if you're indoors and someone looks straight at you, they'll be able to see your eyes (not that well, but these lenses aren't as mirrored as say a fire iridium). on the mountain, the black iridium is awesome for those sunny days, but it was kind of a pain on the one overcast day. so if you have a second pair of goggles or another lens you can swap out, the black iridium is a good choice (it does exactly what it's supposed to, blocks out virtually all of the glare w/ it's 18% transmittance). the pink iridium seems to be for slightly more overcast days at 57% transmittance. i'm not 100% sure on those numbers but they're roughly in that neighborhood, hope this helps EDIT: i would also recommend an all around lens like a vr28, persimmon, or g30 (except i've heard the pinkish hue of the g30 is hard to get used to). i currently have the vr28 and the black iridium and the vr28's kind of turned into my go to lens just because it does great in all conditions (at least imo)
