Re: Movie talk

We tend to avoid movie theater visits in favor of blu ray. Last movie we saw was Transformers Dark side of the Moon and in the movie theater the sound was kind of lacking compared to how we like it to sound on our DIY Home Theater. Twilight series is on our no watch list since story is eh? and sound...

Re: Black Friday: a race to the bottom

Yeah sure Brian! and BB going with the 12 opening flow has nothing to do with last years smackdown on BF by Target!! Target Westie 40" 298 versus BB Westie 40" at 499!! The lines at BB shrank! from 600+ to maybe, maybe 300+ in BF 2010 and the lines at Target grew from maybe 200+ to two tho...

Re: "Leave The Television Off" Day !

Can you ? Would you ? I will leave the television off for the entire day today. I dont need it on as background noise, there is hardly anything worth watching. I HATE reality shows. Its junk for entertainment. The news almost frightens us any more. It really is "The Boob Tube " anymore. I...

Re: Canceled on-line orders

I NEVER EVER order on line items this time of year unless it's something from Ebay. I just don't like the idea of thinking I have an item I want secure and on it's way, then find out later it's not coming after all, then not being able to find it/something similar. I am just a firm believer, if I h...

Re: Kobo vs. Kindle

Last year, Amazon offered the Kindle 2 for $89.99. This was after the Kindle Keyboard had come out, so while this was a good price, it was for an older generation of Kindle. If I had to speculate (again, speculating) my guess would be that they would do something similar -- you may find a Kindle Ke...

Re: Canceled on-line orders

Is anyone else receiving canceled order e-mails for deals bought on-line? So far, Toys R Us and the Vitamin Shoppe have backed out of great deals. Is this a taste of this season's on-line shopping - disappointment? A bit troubling as it is not BF yet and these aren't doorbusters. Shopping life is u...

Re: Define 'cutting'

So it's my first year at best buy, please define cutting for me... If I wait overnight Wednesday and my dad shows up on TG day, is that cutting? If I leave for an hour and have my mom sit there for me is that ok? Also one more question, bathroom breaks, how do they work at BB? At Walmart I got tick...

Re: Why do people think it is ok to cut in line?

In 2007, the last year I did BF "professionally", some idiots tried to do an end run around our campsite. It's a shame that they didn't have a good explanation why they were outside the caution tape and didn't have a tent (and, in the case of some of us, weren't drunk...) Alas, I work ret...

Re: I need some tech savvy help

Something I forgot to mention is look for 7 inch screen size. The reason is that with this size you have a good size screen and still have good portability in a small form factor. Also when the Major yells go! then its far easier to run with a 7 inch tablet then a larger tablet like a ten inch scree...

Re: Hard drive prices increasing!!! argggghhh!!!!

I guess it's time to stock up! Reminds me of the big factory fire that they had in Taiwan years ago that sent memory prices skyrocketing. Look on the bright side, Russell, it'll encourage the adoption, development and production of solid state drives, which are superior anyway . Welcome to the site...

Re: I've been doing Black Friday for so long, that _________

I remember gasoline costing under a buck per gallon and it costing under 15 bucks to fill the tank for the four hour ride back with our BF haul.
