yes, no doubt they were holding them for employees. they said that all the other people who got in the computer line were able to get the cheap ones, even without a ticket, and that we should have gotten in that line first. nobody said anything about that at the door, or when passing out vouchers. a...

you might be able to connect you inverter that way. one of mine has terminals that you can use for either the normal 12v plug connection or the alligator clamps. if it does not have this built in, it is possible to modify it to have clamps. however, you need to be very careful, and do it properly. p...

sadly, this does happen. it might be shady, unethical, against company policy. without stating that the advertised price is based upon the purchase of additional items and services, it could quite possibly be illegal as well. we had similar happen to us at BB one year. this was 3 or 4 years ago, so ...

the cold is the absolute worst part of the wait on BF. I keep track of the weather leading up to it. if it is predicted to be insanely cold, I will wear pants. I am also prepared with a sweatshirt/fleece of some sort. bundling up is not favored, as it just makes it a hassle to relieve yourself after...

Sony is very well respected for making quality stuff. "just as good as the Apple Ipod" can be subjective. will the build quality, durability and usability be on par? yes, it really should be. but will it be on par in the status/name category? no, most likely not. one thing I forgot to brin...

from DJ Caruso (director of The Salton Sea, Taking Lives, Disturbia, and the current release Eagle Eye): "Every visual effects house I go to shows its stuff on a Samsung LCD." that is quite telling. effects houses do all they can to showcase their work. of course, they likely have no probl...

Mike and NeoJew covered this pretty well. I am not too familiar with the Ski Dooing thing, but you do seem to be correct on the analogy. iPod, Zune, and other players from Creative, iRiver, Sony, Sandisk, and dozens of other lesser known brands are all media players. some do play video and photos as...

oh, I def would go with one of those as well if that were the delta between them. my guess though will be that the difference between the first tier brands such as Sony, Sharp, Samsung and the the second tier brands like Vizio, Westinghouse, Olevia will be about the same on BF as it is the rest of ...

Vizio is a bit of a second tier brand in this game. at one point they did have a high return rate. a big factor in that was Costco. they are a major distributor of them. they also used to offer a lifetime replacement warranty. unfortunately, many people abused this policy. they would buy one, then 6...
