My post was more meant to be funny as opposed to a criticism. Your son sounds like a good kid. You did choose to post this in the "Rants and Raves" section of the message board, as opposed to the other sections where people usually post requests for buying advice. So, I thought that you wo...

So, your 13 year old son broke your $1,200 camcorder, and as a reward, you're buying him a new one? What's up with that? But anyway, my suggestion is that you should make your son do the work for you. Tell him what your spending range is and let him find the best deal (or the deal that suits him the...

I wasn't feeling well enough to get up early for the race, so no pie for me. I'm now thinking of making macaroni and cheese for Thanksgiving dinner-- homemade with a Welsh rarebit-based cheese sauce. I'm trying to decide whether the rarebit should be milk-based or beer-based. I think that this will ...

Hmm... I learn something new every day. Apparently, the Xbox 360 uses proprietary hard drives. That is, the actual drive itself is a generic 2.5" SATA hard drive, but it's in an enclosure that uses a proprietary connector to attach to the Xbox. Also, the hard drive is formatted with some sort o...

Instead of having a mad dash inside the store with people trying to grab scarce items, some stores hand out tickets or vouchers ahead of time. They hand them out to people in line, starting at the front of the line. Only some stores do this.

My avatar is an "X" because I am Shopper X. My objective is to get free snow globes and discounted LCD HDTVs by any means necessary.

Your parents might be more concerned with you getting hurt in a Black Friday-related scuffle-- fights over the line-cutting, fights over contested doorbuster items, etc.

According to Wikipedia, all Xbox 360s now have an HDMI port. No adapter is needed. The HDMI cable sells for about $40-50. The only model that didn't have an HDMI port was the old "Core" model that was discontinued last year.

Practice finding your Zen...you'll need it come Friday! Isn't Zen that East Asian martial arts fighting style where you jab people with your elbow while shoving them out of the way of doorbuster items? I'm not able to access the ad. The adscan and list doesn't seem to be up yet either. Could someon...

Well, you have to keep in mind that all the child voice actors did grow up eventually. Do you really want to hear a deep baritone Linus or a raspy, smokers-cough Lucy? If you look at the IMDB entries for the Halloween , Christmas , and Thanksgiving classic Peanuts specials, you'll see that they have...

Of course it depends on your personal circumstances, whether Guitar Hero or Wii Fit is more desirable. However, in general the Wii Fit is more scarce, making it more valuable. If you don't get one this holiday season, don't expect to find one for another 6-8 months. I think that coachcarsten's advic...
