The galaxy phone should interact with your tv as well. I use my iPhone as a remote for mine. My wife sometimes wishes that we would have purchased a 55" tv.

What's the status of your two Merlin's?

We bought our Samsung 3D about 6 months ago and freaking love it. Having the Pandora app in TV is also awesome. The 240hz has to be set up just right or it makes most movies/tv look hokey tho.

I don't think I've had any issues with the 240hz. Although I really haven't messed with the settings other than the picture colors.

I might have to take you up on that picture Simon. That picture would probably look really good on the light reflective paper, not sure what the special paper is called.

I absolutely hate 3d tv and movies. I've waited until films I wanted to see came to dvd because the theaters around me only had them in 3d.

I'll have to mess with my settings and take a look at the difference. Speaking of movies, I just got got home from watching Taken 2. The movie was good, my wife and I really enjoyed it.

If you are getting that "on-set" stage lighting effect then change modes. You have to find the right 240hz mode for standard frame rate video. Many of the modes are for some of the newer HD stuff or games which operate at higher frame rates.

I forget which one looks natural on the Samsungs. Ill check when I get home tonight.

I still must see Taken 2. Everyone's been telling me it's more the same of the first one, which sounds good to me.

I saw End of Watch instead. I'd recommend it, very entertaining throughout.

I've been wanting to see End of Watch also.

I'm hoping I can get this open interview job on Nov. 7th it would really help out.

I've been talking to some people who are heavily involved in today's paintball industry about old school platforms, and wow, lots of lingering love for AKA.

Who did you end up talking to?

It would almost be kind of nice if Kee would buy out AKA's patents and produce something with them. Although it might not end up being the same quality of product.

Did Kee buy all of SP "patents"? I don't think KEE would ever release something like AKA ever did only because they wouldn't have the broken parts side of it!

And on a completely different note...I'm sad my Viking is sold...but thanks to all who helped with the pricing pretty much got what I wanted and the guy has a horde of AKA guns.

A handful of KEE employees actually, along with some from Ninja, G.I., Dye, Empire, and one or two others.

Yeah, KEE bought Smart Parts' intellectual property, but it doesn't seem at all like something will ever be planned to resurrect AKA stuff from any company, which is alright IMO. I agree with you on the probable lack of "AKA Quality" if another company was to try and resurrect AKA. Fortunately, we've got plenty of available parts and services for our Vikings and Excaliburs, and generally responsible owners for said remaining AKA markers.

A very nice green marble swirl Viking has popped up. Has tons of extras, too.

Yeah the 3 extra triggers are nice for sure as well as the tools.

I decided to take a job at Roehl Transport driving truck. We will see how this goes.
