Good call.

The PC/Mac debate cracks me up, but I will end up in similar arguments about movies, music, etc. so I really can't say much.

I'm gonna be in the Malvern area in a couple hours. What kind of snow did the area get? Are roads nice and clear?

It's kind of a cycle.

Remember a few years ago (and even now) when the Mac people took every opportunity to trash PC (for no real reason) and now the PC people are going back at them.

I don't have a huge issue with Mac outside of the fact that my sister's warranty plan absolutely sucked. You pay $100 and the only thing it covers is a factory mistake.

Compare that to my Lenovo where they repaired the screen, replaced a fan for me (for free so I didn't have to buy one and they did it in 3 days), and also gave me a free, new CD-ROM drive while they were repairing the fan.

I haven't tested it out yet, but apparently Apple will replace the wear and tear on the keyboard tray on Macbooks for free (if you have one, it's the part that cracks on every single one of them where it closes). They also stretched out the DVD drive on mine for free after it got ran over by a Jeep. I've had pretty good experiences with Apple fixing my ****.

I can type messages with both thumbs while holding the phone normally now (luckily autocorrect fixes most mistakes). You CAN turn it sideways and use the keyboard sideways though, that can help a lot.
I find that it "corrects" words that are just not in its dictionary that I spelled properly more often than it fixes my mistakes. I'd much rather just have a full keyboard where I can spell **** on my own. Unfortunately AT&T sucks a bit fat one when it comes to smartphones not made by Apple.

My ASUS barebone that I got from PowerNotebooks back in July of 2005 still works perfectly fine. Hell I even have Windows 7 running on it and everything works like the day I got it.

Just picked up Gran Turismo 5...can't play it for a week when I get back to my house because I left my PS3 at my apartment. Ugh.

I'm happy I got RDR for Christmas from my brother. Man, I find it way more fun (less goofy though) than GTA4, especially the shooting.

Here, this one is $600. 40" 1080p and 120Hz.

I just sent this one for the price. But we need to know your price range for how much you want to spend.

Using Etsy is cheating. I love it.

Somehow it can turn 10 minutes of searching and logging into PayPal into something that women think means you care.

Yes it does, awesome game. Think we had a good few pages going in the Video Game thread when it first came out. Those who haven't played it should pick it up, is most likely discounted if not cheap used at this point...

Speaking of which, anyone who has played it get the Zombie add on? I've heard/read nothing but great reviews for it

I've just learned that Stallone was inducted in the International Boxing Hall of Fame. I'm not quite sure if that is idiotic or awesome.

Has anyone ever played Dante's Inferno for PS3? The reviews I have read said it is just like God of War III so don't bother buying it because God of War III is better. I beat God of War III already and really liked it, so if this game is just like it I would be psyched. They describe this as if it is a bad thing.

I think it might be both, creating a super funny offspring.

I found it to be pretty easy, but some of the hunter challenges, like kill a bear with a knife are fun.

I personally haven't tried it, but I say rent it and give it a go. If it's a lot like a game you enjoyed playing, who cares? That just means there's a better chance that you'll enjoy this one too. The whole thing about "don't bother getting this, get GOW3" is bs. That's just an argument for either really narrow-minded people or people that don't have the ability to play both, which is pretty near impossible nowadays.

Vizio crushes everything at it's price point, I can't imagine going with something else if price is very important.

I have one of their 37s that I bought a few years ago, and it's a great TV.
