I have been picking the brains of everyone i know about this stuff for weeks. We have a wii in layaway along with an extra set of the sport controllers. I have asked my mom for a Wii fit for me for Christmas and have told several of those who buy for the boys to buy game stop gift cards for the boy...

No, the front is glass. The back does scratch very easily though. The screen should be alright so long as you are not banging it into carbon fibers or anything.[/b]

I'm in the same boat as almost everyone else. No pressing needs like last year (TV), but there are plenty of things I can think of to blow my money on. $4 DVDs and I'll throw my at any store (as long as I can find it in my area) regardless of whether or not they do the whole C&D thing.

I voted other simply because I'm still not on the whole HDTV thing (yet). I'm mainly looking for cheap movies and series on DVD. No Blu-Ray yet. That'll come at another time.

I know what you mean about not having the option of high speed internet. My girlfriend's family has HughesNet, but would prefer DSL through the phone company like mine. The sad thing is is that the DSL service ends just down the road from them about 1/4 of a mile. They offered to pay for the wire an...

Guitarist - Thanks for the advice. I'm tempted to try all this on our old pc, just in case. Of course, it is several years old. Our new Dell, I got last spring, and it has Vista, but I guess that doesn't matter. The BB Geek Squad thought it was totally bad luck that the hard drive thing happened, w...

When going from an iPod that has been set up on a Macintosh to a Windows computer requires a re-format of the iPod. This does require you to lose all the music you have on the iPod. The reason being is that the two are formatted as two different types of harddrives for recognition purposes. It shoul...

Keep in mind, I've not done any research, but I thought Wii Fit was a game that went with the Wii itself. Don't you have to already have the Wii system, to play Wii Fit ? It seems like people are deciding whether they want regular Wii or Wii Fit and it has me confused ! We don't have a Wii yet, but...

I need some advice on the I-pod vs MP3 also. My daughter is 8. I bought her an I-Pod 2 years ago. A friend set I Tunes up on his PC and put over 100 songs on it for her. Well, his PC had a problem and lost everything. When I tried to install I Tunes on my new Dell, my PC crashed. We have dial up, b...

[quote="Russell Burrows] Exactly!, the wii was and still is full of garbage games that are over priced., and most of the folks who purchased a wii then as of today no longer use it since the 360, PS3 and Play Station 2 are much better options as far as playing games for kids. The PS2 is a bette...

I don't understand why there would need to be new forums. These seem to be doing just fine and all the new stuff is at the top. I can't remember but it seems to me like all the old posts were deleted.

She told me "someone is holding it until 8pm. They gave me $50 to hold it, but I told them I could only hold it until 8." I replied with "It's 8:04. I guess it's my lucky day. Wrap it up. I'll take it." She gave it to me right then and I felt like I had just STOLEN something. Wh...

And let's face it. A lot of the reason we're in such an economic crunch is poor budgeting and spending control on an individual and family basis (I'm not saying that any of you BF'ers are like that!). Somebody with a $10,000 balance on their credit card and barely making their house payment should ...
