As you may have been wondering, what exactly is a Poken?
Well, a Poken is a tiny and cute electronic device that allows you to exchange all your online information with other people! No more writing down numbers, or keying contact details in your phone. Do you know how hard that is at times when you’re meeting a ton of new people… all at once?
With a Poken you’ll do it instantly and when you get back home, plug it into your PC or MAC (via USB) and you’ll be able to see information of the people that you’ve Pokened! Isn’t that amazing?
What’s better still is the fact that when the people you’ve Pokened with update their information, you’ll also get the latest info.
But hang on a minute, if you’re worried about your privacy when exchanging data you’ll also be able to show those people a certain amount of information, like maybe only business info and with close friends or that cute guy your full info :)

Selecting the correct thickness for your home theater wiring is important as it affects the speakers' performance; it will impact the speakers' ability to deliver the explosive effects in home theater sound.
The thickness of a wire conductive copper part is identified by its Wire Gauge, normally expressed either in AWG (American Wire Gauge) or SWG (British Standard Wire Gauge). The British standard represent a thicker wire for the same wire gauge number.
Irrespective of the standard you use, a lower the gauge number related to a thicker wire, and a better capacity to pass the amplified audio signal. Good quality speaker wires fall in the range 12 to 16 AWG.
Even with short runs, AWG 18 is the minimum thickness you can go.
When choosing speaker wire, consider the quality of your gear. In other words, the build-up quality of the speaker wire should match that of your speakers and amplifier. Ensure also that your speaker wire support the power rating of your sound system.
However that quality comes at an expense; thicker home theater wiring is more expensive; hence keep an eye on your available budget.
Therfore, it is recomended to get a quality cable such as the Monster Standard® THX-Certified Speaker Cable which I've bought.

After looking for hours, we saw a JVC Micro sound system which cost around 2.7k. Then we ask the assistant there to come and I told my brother that why not get this as it has an amplifier in it. The assistant heard and he tell us why not get Yamaha which cost lower and the sound quality is better. Then we said "ok", so he took us to a sound room where all the Yamaha Sound System is in it.
He showed us one of the sound system, then we try it out. It was a 5.1 sound system and it surely cost lower than the JVC Micro sound system. After a long talk with my brother, my brother ask that guy if he can reduce the price some more. That guy said "ok", then we told him we want to think..think then my brother followed me the nearest ATM to take out the amount that have been agreed.
That assistant told us that if we want to experience the best sound quality we need to buy a few cables. We told him that next larr... so he help us do all the process that was needed and got a book of voucher as we bought the sound system at such a price.
After buying the sound system, my brother said to me " lets go buy some DVD movies and try out our new sound system". I said "ok". It was around 7 at that time and we receive a call, it was my mum calling us for dinner at my Uncle's house. I told my mum we will be right there. After buying we head straight home to fixed up our sound system, it was then 7.15 and I receive another call it was my mum again rushing us. So i told my brother let go for dinner 1st.
After dinner we went to look for sound cables for about 1hour because there was not enough of cables. We were also looking for the cable that the assistant told us, but outside don't sell those kind of cables they only sell normal RCA cables.
After buying the cables, we head back home to continue setting up the sound system. It took bout an hour to set up the whole thing. Finally we can enjoy, we watch a movie that we just bought to try out our new sound system.
