Re: Re:

It's more of interpretation than being rude. Some people think just because they're not getting all of the attention or things aren't worded the way they think they should be, that the opposing person is being rude. That's not always the case. Me for instance, I'm always short, and to the point.. S...

Re: Mean people

I do feel bad because I participated in a "stop the whining" discussion on a thread about potty passes at Walmart....I noticed that that whole thread was deleted and I felt like the original poster got their feelings hurt. I do apologize for that and hope that they didn't leave the board ...

Re: Ipad vs Tablets

For older non tech savy adults Apple is ok. For the 11 to 16 yearolds who know more about the tech then the parents?? I.e. parents, grown adults! asking the kids "how does this work" As a young, fairly tech-savvy individual I resent this comment. Some people enjoy good design and products...

Re: Tablets for Kids!!

We are looking for a tablet/ipod type item for our 6.5 yo for Xmas. We had been considering the Kindle Fire and new Nook Color but those do not have (or if they did I missed it) a texting and picture taking capability. Our 3.5 yo is getting the new LeapPad Tablet. We are also looking at the Samsung...

Re: Ipad vs Tablets

For the general public: An iPad is not just another tablet. iPads are made by Apple, so you get the quality and ease of use that other tablets tend to not have. They also have access to the many apps in the Apple app store. Other tablets have access to their own app stores, but the selection is mor...

Re: Best prices on BF? maybe true

I kept track of 2 types of things last year, low cost laptops, and digitial camcorders. I didn't buy a laptop, but did get a JVC video camera online from BB for $159 (IIRC). Anyways, as the holidays progressed, I never did find any prices as good a deal on these two item with similar specs as they ...

Re: Ipad vs Tablets

Apple Ipad and Ipad2
Pros: looks nice.

Cons: high price, no USB, NO HDMI, NO flash

IMHO no purchase.

IMHO
Acer Iconia or Toshiba or Assus or other tablets represent a much better value since they do have USB ports, HDMI port, reproduce flash video and are much lower priced.

Why do people think they can cut in line.... Because they are vulgar, uneducated and stupid. Agreed!! 2010 there was one fool that kept trying to line cut in view of Target security and police so the fool got arrested trying to bull run into the store when the Target Manager came out before store o...

Re: 15 myths about Black Friday

MYTH: Signing up for a store credit card to get an extra discount is a no-brainer If it's really that good for you, do you think they'd try to up-sell you so hard? There's a reason why most people decline these offers, not the least of which is the fact that retailers dangle such offers to get you ...
