I just moved and don't have a TV, and I'm looking to buy a TV that has HDMI, composite, and component inputs so that I can use it for my older game systems as well as my HDMI devices. From what I've seen, TVs in the current market are all 4K and don't have composite or component inputs. I know there are composite/component-to-HDMI converters, but I'm worried about input lag. Does anyone have experience using these? Or am I better off finding a used non-4K TV that has these inputs? 4K is nice, but not necessary for me.

I never played Pokemon as a kid, but many of my peers fondly remember Red and Blue version. I would like to know more about this piece of gaming history. Also, I am going to teach English in Japan next year, so I would like to familiarize myself with this piece of pop culture. My friend gave me Blue version a while back, and I played it a little bit, but to someone playing it for the first time, it seemed rather dated and too focused on level-grinding for my taste. With this in mind, my question is: What Pokemon version do you recommend that captures the classic, iconic game but is still a good game in 2013?
My family got a new router recently and started a new network, and this is my first time trying to connect my Xbox 360 to this new network. When I select the network on my Xbox 360, it asks me to enter the WEP key. What is this, and how do I find it? From my internet searches, it sounds like it is the network password, but I tried entering that and it didn't work. Also, I looked on the router itself for a number and couldn't find anything.
The main computer on the network is a Mac, and my personal laptop is Windows. I don't know how to use Macs very well, so if I need to find something from the main computer, detail in the explanation would be appreciated. Note that my Windows laptop is already connected to the network.
If you buy the map pack, do the the new maps show up regularly in all the playlists, and does matchmaking tend to group people who bought the map pack? A problem I had with Halo: Reach was that when I bought the first map pack, the maps rarely, if ever, showed up in the regular playslists, and I could only play them in the DLC playlist. Then when the next map pack came out and I didn't want to buy it, I couldn't play the DLC playlist anymore so the first map pack was basically useless.
Thanks for the help, everyone.
Next semester I will be rooming with another person who plays Xbox 360. Both of us have our gamertags on flash drives so we can take them with us, so we might only bring one of our systems to our room on campus. If we use his system for instance, would I be able to load my saved games from my gamertag on my flash drive? What about downloaded content like new maps and arcade games?
Focused on academics and success; parents put high pressure on kids to get good grades and learn arts like piano or violin without giving kids much room to make their own decisions or do activities purely for enjoyment. Focus is on helping the family or community rather than individual success. That's based on what my Asian and Asian Americans friends have told me, a newspaper article that I recently read, and an education textbook about teaching foreign-born students. I also often hear about their innovation in science and technology. Also, my roommate visited Japan and said that he noticed racism toward foreigners.
I recently started a temporary job at a factory. Some of the work is mindless and repetitive for long stretches, and can't listen to music or talk to anyone. How do you amuse yourself when all you have is your mind? Singing songs in my head only entertains me for so long.
Different people have different ideas of what a "good" job is. Money and benefits might not be their top priority. For example, I am in college because I want to be a teacher. I know that I won't make a lot of money, but it's a job I will enjoy and I think I will have a sense of fulfillment from the opportunity to have a positive influence on kids. So in my case, I need to go to college to have the job I want. But other people's goals may not require a degree.
I only got a high-definition TV last month. For years I've felt like games on the Xbox 360 seem to assume that the player is using an HDTV, as they usually contain small text or other HUD components that are diffucult to read on a standard TV. I'm curious to see if many people still use standard definition TVs. After all, not everybody can afford the luxury of a new TV to go along with an expensive system.
