Over the weekend, Sony broke two records: Over one million PS4s were sold in the first 24 hours of availability but on the other hand, it seems the PS4 might usurp the Xbox 360 crown as the world least reliable console. Sony customer service department will replace these broken consoles characterized by a blue light of death (BLOD) but due to the dearth of stock in North America, early adopters are being told that they may have to wait months for a replacement PS4. Why are so many PS4s dead on arrival? Is this the second act of the Xbox 360 red ring of death saga, or is it something altogether more complex? If you have a bricked PS4 and you looking for tips on how to fix it, skip past the next section. Sony, for its part, doesn seem to be directly addressing the mass reports of DOA PS4s. Presumably Sony is still trying to work out what, if anything, is actually going wrong. Different kinds of deathSony has admitted that around 0.4% of PS4s sold in the US have been dead out of the box, or have broken very soon after being powered up. There doesn seem to be a singular cause of this mass bricking, and likewise there seem to be a few different ways that a PS4 can die. This indicates that there isn a single flaw that causing the PlayStation 4 to break, but a variety or combination of factors that are only rearing their ugly heads now that there are one million PS4s in North American homes. With the Xbox 360, most deaths were attributed to thermal failure, probably caused by overheating over a few days or weeks of play. The broken PS4s, on the other hand, seem to be dead out of the box. People are plugging in their PS4 for the first time and being greeted by a blank TV (no video output) and a blinking blue light of death (BLOD, video above). In some cases, the BLOD combined with no video/sound output only appears after the PS4 has been booted a few times. There are some reports that the PS4 broke soon after updating the firmware to version 1.5. There have been some cases of the PS4 overheating (a red light bar), but the vast majority of broken PS4s seem to be DOA. PS4 red line of death (overheating) What isn clear, this close to the launch of the PS4, is whether the console will suffer the same miserable drawn out fate of the Xbox 360 RROD. The Xbox 360 had an issue that caused it to wear out over time, while the PS4 issues are obviously more immediate. It will be interesting to see whether the number of PS4 deaths accelerate over the next few weeks, or whether we looking at an early spate of infant mortality, followed by years of problem free gaming. It will be interesting to see how the Xbox One fares later this week, too Microsoft, trying to recover from the Xbox 360 awful reliability issues, says that the Xbox One is engineered to last 10 years. How to fix a broken PS4Sony has published some guidance for PS4 owners trying to fix their BBLOD. In some cases, updating the firmware of your TV can fix the no video/sound issue. If you hold the power button for seven seconds (until the system beeps twice), and then unplug the PS4 at the wall, that might fix things. Sony also recommends checking your cables/sockets for damage (if the HDMI socket is damaged/dirty, that can explain your PS4 lack of audio/video). You can also check to make sure your PS4 hard drive is properly seated if it got jostled a bit during transport, that would explain why your PS4 is failing to turn on fully. If none of these steps help, you need to contact Sony for a replacement console or rather, a fixed console, as there no stock in North America to like for like replacement of your broken console. Reports seem to be varied on how long it take to get your console fixed; some PS4 owners are saying that Sony is quoting between two and four weeks, while some owners say that they be waiting until February for a replacement. What causing so many broken PS4s?At this point, no one is entirely sure why so many PS4s are dying. Even Sony isn sure what going on. If these deaths only occur in the first few hours of ownership, then the flaw is almost certainly a manufacturing fault, or damage caused by shipping (being dropped would explain an unseated hard drive or a damaged connector). Someone purporting to be a Foxconn intern has said that he and his fellow workers sabotaged the PS4 production line to retaliate for poor working conditions, but this seems unlikely (the consoles probably wouldn have passed QA). It worth noting that a failure rate of 0.4% isn actually that bad. If Sony sold one million PS4s, 0.4% equates to 4,000 dead consoles. Given the number of (many of which are from verified buyers), I suspect Sony might be understating the failure rate but even if it nearer 1 or 2%, that still not awful (but definitely indicative of a manufacturing/shipping flaw). Some of the Amazon reviews could be fake, too. It is also noteworthy that the PS4 is the first console launch that has occurred since the popularization of social media. The amount of negative press/tweets/reviews could just be a sign of the times, rather than an accurate indicator of how many PS4 buyers got lumped with $400 bricks. It will be very telling to see whether the number of dead PS4s accelerates over the next few weeks, and also whether the Xbox One also experiences the same level of social media amplified failure rates, or if the engineered for 10 years of constant use console actually turns out to be more reliable than the PS4. Now read:The PS4 takes the 'pure gaming machine' thing way too far Tagged InThe XBoxOne is the same crap fraud of the PS4, it not going to be any better quality wise. Obviously these ITX/netbook ultra cheap obsolete slow PCs sold as consoles are cheap as hell with a very high fault rate. There is no quality control either. All the managers behind this scam fraud want maximum profits with no risks. Now it rather silly and pathetic that Sony managers are accusing Foxconn employees of sabotaging production of their crap PS4. The PS4 and XBoxOne just plain suck. It ultra cheap hardware, lowest quality plastic and metal sheets. That is just what it is. Anyone expecting a quality product must be on drugs. Really. As long as there will be people that enjoy being ripped off buying overpriced low quality cheap plastic obsolete hardware products like these fake next gen consoles scam frauds these managers will keep getting richer and richer selling crap and doing the worst. HMMMM. chojin sure is quiet now. I assume he realizes he was called out on his BS and ran like the spineless tool he is. I have hav everything form a PS1, 2, 3, 4, Xbox 360 and multiple gaming PC It comes down to one simple thing PERSONAL EFFING PREFERENCE!!! Owning a console simply comes down to it being convenient and certainly cheaper than a PC with any real power. I still prefer to play on a PC due to it level of customization and the fact I play FPS games and it is easier for me to use a keyboard/mouse combo than a controller. I did receive a launch PS4 and I have to say I love it so far and anticipate that feeling to continue. I do not nor have I ever worked for Sony nor do any of my friends and family) sorry couldn resist. He was at fault beyond a shadow of a doubt. Maybe he shouldn be going to jail for murder, but he was stalking someone in the dark with a gun and ended up shooting him. So while there may not have been enough evidence to outright convict him of murder, pretending that letting him off without any charges was justice is laughable at best. The guy should done time for something. Not to mention the fact that if the murder victim is black and the assailant isn you have about a 60% better chance of walking away without doing prison time. There are also a lot more murder cases in states with your Ground laws. They don work. Meh, believe what you want. I really preferred 360 most of the last 9 years,my youngest still does and my oldest son has been sony always, I got really got hook and became an achievement hound, last year I started playing ps3 for their exclusives and then got hook on the platinum trophy (more like obsessed) and started replaying every game I played on 360. I evaluated new consoles and decided PS4 this time to start, MS policys early on the X1 really concerned me (still do). But all the xbox fanboys better chill until Xbox comes out it could be worse then Sonys start. I honestly not much of a fish person, can I substitute the trout for chicken? If it sushi it okay. But yeah, the media needs something to talk about and this is the most interesting thing. People see it all over the media so they assume it a huge problem, when it reality it affecting very few people. It is strange that two different reviewers had defective PS4s, but that doesn seem to be the case out in the wild. At least not yet. I still be getting a PS4. Not overly worried. Sony aren denying any problems like Microsoft did for the first year with the 360 at least. sabotage to blame for broken Playstation 4 consoles?intern claims PS4 was sabotaged during manufacturing Air Jordan 7 Retro Bordeaux 2011 ,Air Jordan 6 Olympic Gold Medal Pack Air Jordan 11 Low White Black True Red Air Jordan 5 Premio Black Black Metallic Silver Air Jordan 6 Rings Powder Blue Air Jordan 7 Retro Bordeaux 2011 Air Jordan 6 Rings Black Dark Charcoal Air Jordan 10 Bulls Over Broadway Air Jordan 10 Bulls Over Broadway Air Jordan 2 Infrared Cement Hi I'm Angela with Freestyle Fashionista and today I'm going to show you how to design your own bridal shoe. The first thing you want to do is find a white or silver shoe online or at your nearest shoe store. And then the next thing you want to do is go to your nearest craft store or hop online. You want to buy trims and broaches. Those are going to be your go to for this design. You want to grab everything that screams bridal. I have some flowers, I have some bling, and I also bought some rhinestone trim which I already glued on to our sandal here. The glue that you want to use when you glue the rhinestone trim on is going to be the handy dandy E 6000 glue. It's an all purpose glue, dries like cement. You do want to let it dry overnight before you start attaching the broaches or anything else. Okay, so if you like this look you can easily stop here and have this be your bridal shoe. Or let me go ahead and grab our rhinestone broaches. I like broaches more than shoe clips because they stay on. They're a lot more sturdy. You can dance, you can twirl around and you don't have to worry about them popping off. That's how that would look, beautiful. You can go ahead and stop there if you want. Or if you think that's too blingy we can take the flower broaches. I have a few white ones here and I'm going to go ahead and show you where I would place them on the shoe just for a suggestion. This looks really good when there's flowers all around the back of the shoe. You want to just pin those on. There's one, and let me put one more on for you. Obviously I have some color flower broaches sitting there. And you can use those as well. Maybe to match your bridesmaid. So I just put those two on. So there you have the front of the shoe, and that's how the back would look. Super cute. If you wanted to add some color you can actually stick another one on. I'm not going to stick this on I'm just going to place it so I can show you guys. There's a punch of pink. So cute. Bridal is so much fun. Make sure you give yourself a little bit of time before the wedding to do this just in case it doesn't turn out how you want. So you have some time to find a shoe or time to redesign. Let me go ahead and take those off. So I just want to show you one more thing. You can buy some flower trim if you don't want to have the broaches, if you think they're too bulky. I've already gone and I've cut a little strip. And this is super easy because what you're going to do here, this lays a lot flatter so you can use your E 6000 glue and you can glue this to the back of the shoe and the fun thing about trim is you can wrap it around the heel so it actually gives your heel a really beautiful little look. And that keeps everything white, flat, and glamorous. Alright those are my suggestions on how to design your own bridal shoe. Thank you so much for watching, I am Angela with Freestyle Fashionista, have a great day. Air Jordan 7 Retro Bordeaux 2011,Jenny Kincaid Boone Jenny Kincaid Boone has been running since she was in eighth grade. She competed in cross country and track at Fort Defiance High School (Fort Defiance, Va.) and at Roanoke College, where she was all ODAC in cross country for four years. The Mill Mountain Star Trail is the place for you. This 3.4 mile round trip run is sure to give your knees, quads and everything else a mountain workout of steel, while throwing in some of the best scenery around. The trail is a convenient find if you live near downtown Roanoke or in certain parts of Roanoke County. It begins at the bottom of Mill Mountain, off of Riverland Road, and winds all the way up to the Star, Roanoke's famed landmark. Atop the Star overlook, the city stretches before you, nestled between the Blue Ridge and Alleghany Mountains. Day hikers frequent this route, one of nine trails or road routes that make up Roanoke's greenway system. Officials envision the greenways to eventually become a network of interconnecting paths throughout the city and surrounding areas. I would call the route a steep ascent if you're running. The trail begins on a gravel road and a gradual incline that continues for a short distance before passing a water tank. As the route turns into the woods, a lush green fortress surrounds it. The path is dirt packed and relatively clear for running without many rocks or large boulders to dodge. Keep following the trail, which is flat in some parts and rolling in others. It climbs a short flight of stairs before crossing Fishburn Parkway. Go up another flight of stairs when you reach the other side of the road, and the real trail running begins. For the rest of the 1.7 miles, you'll take on a winding, uphill climb. Certain parts of the trail are wide while others become narrow. As you wind up the mountain, the turns get sharper. Watch out for clumps of rocks around each corner. They are more numerous as you get closer to the top of Mill Mountain. The trail doesn't flatten out in many spots. But I like to know where my feet are stepping, and this trail keeps you on your toes when taking cautious landings. Beware of rocks and roots along much of the path. Just when you think you can't lift your knees another step, you look up and see a clearing. It's the top of the mountain. That light from the clearing is enough to push you up the rest of the trail. At your mountaintop destination, reward yourself by pausing and taking in the great views of the Roanoke Valley. For the descent, you can take the trail back or follow the road down Mill Mountain on Fishburn Parkway. You'll battle more vehicle and bike traffic on the road route, but it's easier on your knees than forging down the trail. If you decide to run back down the trail, keep an even closer eye on your footing than you did coming up. But many hikers and runners would agree that you haven't really lived in the Star City until you've forged the Star Trail. Make taking the trail a goal in your running journey. Directions to the Mill Mountain Star Trail: Driving I 581 South, take Exit 6 (Elm Avenue) and turn west. Take a left onto Jefferson Street. Turn left onto Walnut Avenue at the stoplight. Cross under the Walnut Avenue bridge and take the first left onto Piedmont Street. Turn right onto Riverland Road. Drive down the road about 1 mile and turn right into a gravel drive, marked Mill Mountain Star Trail.
Worldwide Online Specialty Stores Sells a Variety Of New Classic Style Of Air Jordan 7 Retro Bordeaux 2011,Air Jordan 6 Rings Black Dark Charcoal Women decide to wear high heel shoes for many reasons. Depending on the individual woman, there are various styles and types of high heel shoes available for purchase. The following paragraphs will discuss high heels shoes in general, as well as provide some valuable tips to consider when wearing high heel shoes and tips on how to walk in high heel shoes. While wearing high heels excessively can cause health problems related to your feet and legs, wearing them on occasion can make you feel elegant! By considering some tips and advice before purchasing and wearing high heel shoes, you can help prevent foot pain, leg pain, as well as aid in preventing possible health issues related to your feet or legs. Firstly, you should always try to choose the shortest heel to achieve your desired look. For example, a two inch heel can clearly cause fewer foot and leg problems than a four inch heel. A two inch heel can often give you the same effects as a four inch heel if you choose a thin, stiletto type rather than a thick, chunky style. Thus, you should always consider the shorter heel first, especially if the same results will be achieved. Since high heels can clearly cause health issues, it is always the best idea to avoid wearing them for extended periods of time, or wearing them excessively. By doing so, you will help preserve the health of your feet and legs. Finally, you can take your high heels to your foot doctor and actually have them custom fit to your individual feet and legs. It is very common to have your pedorthist foot doctor stretch the toe box to best accommodate the wearer. While high heels can emulate the idea we have longer legs, they can be extremely difficult to walk in. If you can not walk properly in high heels, it may become impossible to achieve your desired appearance. Some useful tips on how to walk in high heels include: Make sure that your shoes are the proper size. It is important to find a pair of high heel shoes that are comfortable on your feet in order to walk properly in them. If your feet hurt, it will likely show in your expression. Avoid wearing stockings with your high heels in order to help make walking in your shoes easier. Foot perspiration can help your foot cling to the shoe. If you have to undergo the process, always note that you do it from a licensed provider. Only then is it considered to be legal and safe.

Air Jordan 7 Retro Bordeaux 2011 Microfiber suede, commonly known as microsuede, is made of synthetic fibers woven together to mimic the velvety look and feel of real suede. Microfiber suede is more affordable and usually requires less care and maintenance than natural suede, making it an ideal material for upholstery. Regular vacuuming is necessary to remove dirt, pet hair and lint that can accumulate with everyday use. If your microfiber suede requires deeper cleaning, check the care instructions on the tag. If a "W" is present on the tag, use a water based cleaner. If an "S" is present, use a solvent based product. If an "X" is present, no cleaning products are safe to use.
