Re: Gold

Using gold to dampen portfolio volatility seems silly because I can become desensitized to volatility. Gold as a store of value does not make sense to me because of the %30 collectible tax. Gold as as an insurance policy against war does makes sense to me because it can be buried in the backyard and...

Paying rent in bulk?

If I was signing up for a 6 month lease, would any landlords accept all 6 months rent up front in exchange for a discount? For example, all 6 months up front and I get one month free. Are there any dangers I would need to be worried about in this arrangement?

I used to think this is the way it would work back in 2017. Now I am of the belief that all these services will be built on top of 2-5 "platform protocols".

Re: Any good reasons to get a 5g phone?

its both, they are upgrading the network and you need a 5g phone to access it. but your old phone will still work fine, your not forced to switch. thats a good question about coverage and I have no idea

Re: Any good reasons to get a 5g phone?

I am getting a VR headset, maybe playing it online will be reason to get 5G. Otherwise, I agree with what everyone is saying. I want the samsung galaxy s10e and am hoping people are going to start trading theirs in for 5G phones so I can pick one up a used for cheap :)

Any good reasons to get a 5g phone?

I will be getting a new phone in the near future and trying to figure out if there is a good reason to get a 5g phone. When smart phones came out, i immediately saw the benefits over dumb phones and did not wait to long to get one. But what can 5g do for me that a 4g phone cant? The only thing I can...

might also spring for an e-bike for one of us to bring some parity to our riding.
It has occured to me to get an ebike aswell, the big battery can give me added optionality of charging electronics when im touring and getting up big hills when im delivering food all day

Re: Need help for touring folding bike

Looking for that balance between compactness and comfort (at 47 and 65 not looking to incur any soft tissue or stress injuries that take a long time to heal), given that neither of us has ever been a hard core bicyclist or anything...the hardest biking we did was a 75 mile Tour de Cure ride...and p...

the carry on luggage aspect is something i haven't considered fully. I probably would just check the bike as checked baggage

Re: Need help for touring folding bike

What do you mean by "getting gears reduced?" Looking at the models listed on the origami website as they go up in price you get better specifications. Steel frame to aluminum, 7 speed to 8 speed, etc. This is typical for bikes. Some questions to think about: are you talking touring like g...

Need help for touring folding bike

I am new to bikes and want a folding bike for touring. If i had unlimited budget, I would get the Bike Friday Diamond Llama. but my budget is ~$1000. I want something tough that I can go off roading with. Is there any caveats to getting gears reduced or is that easy to do on any bike? I am lost with...

Re: video editing apple computer?
