  • LG G4 VS Galaxy Note 5 VS Galaxy S6 Active?

    My current phone is somewhat old (HTC Inspire), I've had for about 4-5 years. It's been a good phone, but it's approaching its dying days sadly.

    I mainly use my phone for calls, texts, web surfing, the occassional game, listening to audiobooks, and as a GPS for my car. Really my biggest complaint with my current phone (even before the recent dying days) is the battery feels really lacking to a point that after watching 20-30 mins of youtube videos, its dead, and the pictures weren't very high quality, they always seemed to have a bit of noise. Furthermore, it kinda dies relatively fast when using it as a GPS.

  • Looking for a new smartphone...no clue what to look for though?

    My current phone is somewhat old (HTC Inspire), I've had for about 4-5 years. It's been a good phone, but it's approaching its dying days sadly.

    I'd preferably like to get a new phone by March 1st so anything releasing past that can kinda be ignored unless they are really close to March 1st and vastly superior.

    Not really sure else matters...I have AT&T, looking for quality opposed to just budget phone (though I dont want to overspend for no reason), prefer non-apple but it's not a deal breaker.

    It says it comes with a 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless Adapter but in the Q/A section, people say you still need to buy a wifi card. Can someone explain to me what the difference is or what all I would need to do to use wifi?

  • How to determine equity amounts of a partnership on an income statement?

    This is a homework question and I'm not just trying to avoid doing the work. I just literally have no clue what/where I'm going wrong at.

    "Upton Company was started on January 1, 2011, when the owners invested $160,000 cash in the business. During 2011, the company earned cash revenues of $120,000 and incurred cash expenses of $82,000. The company also paid cash distributions of $15,000.

    Upton is a partnership with two partners, Dan and Nancy Upton. Dan invested $100,000 and Nancy invested $60,000 of the $160,000 cash that was used to start the business. Nancy was expected to assume the vast majority of the responsibility for operating the business. The partnership agreement called for Nancy to receive 60 percent of the profits and Dan the remaining 40 percent. With regard to the $15,000 distribution, Nancy withdrew $6,000 from the business and Dan withdrew $9,000."

    I know equity equals $183000 in total so on the income statement the two sections I keep missing is

    Nancy Upton, Capital = ?

    Dan Upton, Capital = ?

    I tried multiple combinations but I just can't figure out what I'm missing.

  • Why can I not make any friends?

    I'm almost a junior in college and I've literally made no friends while also losing relationships with my few friends I tried to keep up with from HS. People tend to talk to me a lot right before or after class and sometimes during class but outside of class, I just can't make anything happen. In my business classes, people always ask to be my partner for stuff, ask me to tutor them, or help them with assignments so I've tried asking if they wanted to have a study group or hang out sometime but every time they have an excuse (legitimate or not) which at first seemed like a coincidence but at least over 20 attempts and no luck with hanging out.

    I've tried to hangout outside of work with my coworkers but majority of them are rather older and dont live nearby so it isnt really viable to "hangout" for them.

    I've looked into clubs/sports on campus but I dont have enough time to be on a sports team and all the clubs either are full-time commitments (required to attend so many meetings with 2-3 or less absences otherwise you are kicked out) or are "diversity" clubs which I've tried the LGBT, Men for Women's Equality, Christian's Alliance, and etc clubs but they literally bore me to death. A major issue, I'm aware of is that I'm not really passionate about anything so I don't really associate with a hobby or interest. I've tried to find something that I really enjoy but no luck.

    Also I live at home with my parents because my college is only 15 minutes away.

  • Grand Theft Auto V unreadable disc - Xbox 360?

    GTA V disc 1 (install disc) unreadable/recognizable...brand new, no scratches/blemishes (returned it twice and got two new other copies, disc 1 still doesnt work). Btw I have one of the original white xboxes.

    Tried cleaning the disc, tried other games (they all work fine), clearing my HDD cache, taking out and putting back in my HDD, and restarting the xbox 360.

    I've checked the laser isn't broken/damaged. I contacted both Rockstar and Microsoft, they both just play the blame game and blame each other.

    Please don't bother with; should've got the ps3 version or maybe youre just really unlucky with your copies.

  • Changed ISP now all my programs wont work?

    Recently switched ISP to comcast and now all my programs that use internet; WoW, Steam, Outlook, Ventrilo, etc. Won't connect but my internet browsers all work (chrome, internet explorer, firefox, etc). I still have both connections so i switched back to my old one to test it and everything works fine. So it has to be the ISP.

  • Help with graphics card and power supply?

    I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card for my computer (HP Pavilion p6754y) which has 4 gb memory and I was looking through the graphics cards and power supplies. Coming to the conclusion that I really dont understand much of this stuff so my question is I have $150 to spend to increase my capability of gaming to where i'd be able to play Payday 2, Total War 2 Shogun, and etc games at least on normal settings. I'm also curious how difficult it is to replace the power supply and graphics card?

  • What to look for in graphics cards and power supplies?

    I recently decided I was going to upgrade the graphics card in my computer because its only a ATI radeon 4200 HD (integrated) and I'm trying to play a bit more games such as payday 2 and total war 2. Anyways, I've been looking around and I've come to realize I really have no idea what to look for in these graphics cards like I thought it was as simple as memory, brand, and laptop vs PC but it's obviously more than that.

    I'm also well aware that my 250 watt power supply isn't going to cut it for a new graphics card. So same applies for power supplies, more than just wattage, brand, and laptop vs PC.

    Overall, I'm just not understanding how I know what to buy.

  • Advice for graphics card upgrade or hardware upgrade?

    I'm really a noob when it comes to PC hardware so I was wondering what would be the best upgrade point for my PC in order to increase my capability of gaming, I'm noticing there are some games that I have to play on low graphics or small window to be able to run effectively.

    Here is my computer; (i havent changed anything)

    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docnam...

    My friend told me that you cant just upgrade a graphics card usually because of the power supply being too small but idk if mine is or not. I also heard RAM can bottleneck even the best of graphics cards.

  • Advice for business career that is international path?

    I currently go to a liberal arts university and I'm doing quite well but I havent really decided on a concentration yet but I'm leaning towards business due to I enjoy statistics and the competitiveness personality found in business. Additionally, I really like the idea of traveling to other countries but I'm unsure whether this is a legitimate possibility or I'm going to have to work my @$$ off day and night to just have a chance. Furthermore, I just want some advice like which foreign language I should learn in college and whether it would be possible to fulfill my goal of being able to travel a lot with an accounting or finance degree. Overall, any advice would be appreciated.

  • How did you figure out what major you wanted to pursue?

    I know there is no GOLDEN way to figure it out but I just want to see if anyone has any experiences that would be beneficial in helping me decide. My issue lies in due to the plethora of types of careers, its really hard to figure out which one to pursue without any experience in them. I mean I know I have the option to give a few a try in college without too much penalty because there is university wide class requirements and free electives but I want to make sure I'm making the right choices in which classes to try.

  • Tips for learning to draw?

    Anyways have any good tips for learning to draw, right now I'm trying to put forth a few hours daily and use stuff to observe opposed to from my head. It's been almost 2 weeks of doing this and I haven't seen much improvement. Furthermore I'm not trying to do very complicated things just cartoons for the most part though I have put forth a few days where i'll find something in my room and draw it.

    My biggest issue lies in proportions and keeping straight lines. Additionally, I'm a college student so I plan to take a few (2-3) art classes before I graduate but I just don't understand how I can get to the point where I can draw my own creations and they look decent.

  • Advice for finding a part-time job?

    I recently graduated HS, tried putting in applications throughout HS but not as extensively as I am this summer. So i've put in about 11 job applications since late may, with no success at getting a job. My biggest issue atm is that I'm unable to have transportation so I have to walk everywhere which is fine but there comes a distance that just is too much of a burden. So I'm limited in the number of places I can work at.

    Now, i've tried multiple ideas, seeing if i have any friends to carpool or recommend me with no luck. I've tried going back for follow-ups multiple times. I've undergone an interview twice and my interviewer said that I did quite well but what ends up happening is the general/district manager requests me to do an interview at alternate locations that are usually 5+ miles away and I'm unable to fulfill the interview.

    I've tried fast food, grocery store, local restaurant, local insurance building, postage office, and home improvement place with just no luck. I've tried personally speaking with the manager and they always say they will contact me which they never do so i follow-up and they tell me the same thing except for the 2 interviews I got.

    I mean I just don't understand whats the issue. I'm willing to do any hours, any day of the week. I have no crime history, combination of volunteer and some local landscaping experience, and speak/write fluent english.

    Any advice?
