Microphone Recommendations

     Throughout my time on the net, making videos as well as writing, I have been into podcasting. Everyone knows that to be a good podcaster, you need a good microphone. Some of the microphones I have used vary from the traditional clip-on, desktop microphones, as well as condenser microphones. 

     If you are looking for optimal quality, and have a budget of up to $100, I would recommend the Samson C01U. It runs for about $80 and has amazing quality. You will want to buy the stand and the shockmount, which are about $40 total.

     If you have a budget of about $30, I would recommend the  Logitech USB desktop microphone which runs for only $20 on Amazon. It has good quality for a desktop microphone, but it doesn't sound like your voice, it sounds like someone talking, it is not recommended for podcasting.

     Finally, if you just want a cheap microphone, I would recommend the Hands Free Clip on Mini Microphone which is only $5! They are cheap microphones, so be forewarned, you get what you pay for.

     In general, when getting a microphone you pay for what you get.



The LG GD910

At CES 2008 LG gave us a sneak peak at their innovative watch-phone, the GD910. This year at CES, they took it out of the display case and out onto the floor. The watch features a 1.43 inch diagonal touch screen, and 3G networking. The interface looks similar to other LG touch screen phones, such as the Dare and Voyager, and yes, you use your finger. That's right! no stylus for a 1 inch screen.(Imagine typing a phone number with that!) If you think this product sounds exciting and you can't wait to get your hands on one, you better make sure of one thing: you live in Europe. That's right, the phone works in Europe only. Rumors suspect AT&T may pick it up for America some time this year. The watch is still a prototype but should be out soon.



What is chilling?

Hey everyone this is Tristan again. 

Well first day the social blog has been open and from what ive seen it seems to be a success. 

Haha but besides that, for many of us in high school and college it is almost the start of a new semester meaning its now your chance to start over and get better grades. I know i do. 

So yeah i am really excited for the new semester because i learned that my high school will now be allowing students to bring LapTops!!! Ahh i can't wait. I am going to be 24/7 now on my Mac book pro. Tambien the school has wireless access so i will be able to look up subjects and other nifty stuff. 

But other than that nothing really going on in my world just got one day left of mid terms tommorow and then a 4 day weekend. 

IN OTHER NEWS! John Smoltz was  recently introduced to the Red Sox organization. In my opinion as a red sox fan i think John Smoltz will more be a veteran type player who can offer advice to young pitchers like Clay Buchholz and Jon Lester and just make them more dominant. I truly don't think he is the dominant pitcher he once was but he will contribute to the Red Sox not hurt them so i think it was a sweet deal picking him up. 

Well that's about it for my first Official social blog!

A Random Beginning

Hello to all who's curious eyes ponder over this vast cornucopia of bewildered verbage. [Wewf! Say that five times fast. ] My name, or proper nomenclature, is 'THeHarbinger'. What does that mean? It's not important. But neither is what I say, but I'll say it anyway. Please, ignore any unintended inconsistencies for the sake of delusory. College is my focus. Music, my passion. And Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX, my home. [Not the international airport either.] So let's bypass the confusing semantics and delve into the needlessly complicated, purposely repetitive, logorrheic bravado before someone outside of this boundless ocean of information, falls, and can't get up to save themselves...


Thanks, and more digital scribbling to come!





Instant Snow in Fargo, ND

In response to Nick's DIY skin freeze, it's -24 in Fargo, ND and our low tonight is around -40. What do you do when it's -40? See the video.

Looks like fun, eh? I think I might try this tomorrow.
