Bought an iPod Touch 2G from the Apple Store. A bit pi$$ed off as they stated on their website the following:

If you order a Mac from the Apple Online Store during our one-day shopping event, the price displayed during the checkout process and in your Order Confirmation email will include VAT at the current rate of 17.5%. However, since your order will ship on or after Monday December 1, your order will be subject to VAT at the new rate of 15%.'


My order was shipped out on Friday (same day as was ordered). Kinda sucks not having that extra 5 which I would of put towards an invisible shield.

Will give the iPod Touch a full video review once i've got my hands on it.

Is Blue Planet better than Planet Earth? I asked for Planet Earth on BR for Christmas, but saw Blue Planet and couldn't decide which it was that was better.

Apple TV will never compete (imho) with BR players. I own both and I find no joy in HD viewing over ATV even plugged in via HDMI. I can't see any quality difference between ATV's SD and HD programming.

I believe Blue Planet is 1 (possibly 2) discs, meanwhile Planet Earth is a 4 (possibly 5) disc set. I have Planet Earth and it makes for HOURS of amazing viewing, I plan on buying Blue Planet for my gf for xmas, though. if your gift-giver wants to fork over the extra cash, I'd definitely go with Planet Earth!

what's the screen size?

it's just a 32", but it's full 1080p HD, so I'm happy about that. a good starter TV, IMO.

if you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost and was it worth the money? i'm somewhat in the market for an HDTV around 30" or less and LG products are overall dependable.

I bought 4 BF Goodrich Revalation tires for my Corolla from Sears Auto (Minus the Buick Logo :))

http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/images/ts-dl/tires/large/revelation-touring.jpg

They were giving away $60 gift cards with the purchase of any 4 tires, so I figured it was a pretty good deal. Come to find out it is harder then I though to spend $60 at Sears. :) I wanted to try to get something as close to $60 as I could since I didn't really want to spend any extra. I looked around for 45 minutes, and couldn't find anything to buy. I went back with my Aunt, and found a Watch I kinda liked, since my old one is not working right. I couldn't decide if I wanted it though, so we left. When we got home, my Uncle wanted to go out, so we wen out again, and figured we would stop at Sears real quick and grab the watch. Of course it was gone! So I ended up doing an In-Store Pick-Up order online, and driving an hour away to get it. I went to a Bar and played some pool while I was down there so I didn't make the trip just for a watch. Hows that for a story? :) Anyway here is the Watch, it's a Relic, which I come to find out is made by Fossil, even though they don't seem to admit it on their web-site. :)

They say it's a skeleton dial, but really it's just for effect, the "gears" are actually fake, and just for looks, but it's still cool looking. The bottom middle gear actually spins every second, but Im not sure it has anything to do with the Watch movement.

It's my parents and it is by far the most inexpensive item I could have listed. I refrain from asking for the $1500 lenses and such. :)

Don't mind at all, I've been shopping around for the best deals for Black Friday and found the 32LG70 32" 1080p Full HDTV at 6ave.com for $899 minus a 25% off coupon I found snooping for deals online, so the total came to $674.25 (free UPS Ground Shipping) which I think is a great price for a 1080p TV. I did my research on 6ave.com and their customer service reviews are mixed but the quality of their merchandise seems to be pretty good. I haven't received the delivery yet, it should be here by Thursday, Friday at the latest (shipping from NY to MD). All-in-all this seems to be the best price online.

I just checked the item again on 6ave.com and the price has lowered but the coupon code I used is no-longer accepted for this item, the new price is $795. Here's the code, in case you find a TV you like and the coupon code is accepted: AFLTV25

Good luck!

Not at all...

They were $59.99
and 50% off.
So, $30 and some change.

I've been looking for a pair of pumas for a while...and had a hell of a time finding these online when I got back.
Right after I bought them, I saw them at another store for full price.
So, I don't know if they've been discontinued or not.
