- Under $500

Any suggestions? I don't need 3G/4G, just Wifi. Amount of storage isn't a huge problem either.
Microsoft Surface!

Oh.. under $500.

And on another topic...just finished episode 7 of Burn Notice Season 6. What. The. Actual. ****.
I like it. My only complaint is that there is so much dead space taken up by that black border. I'll probably give it a go.

I should mention the "stock" keyboard dock is 150 extra, so getting a generic one may be the way to go.

Spoil:


Nate's funeral. I kept thinking they weren't actually going to kill him off and episode 6 was just a ruse, but there he was in the casket. Damn that was sad.



Now off to finish the Season. Best one they've had in a few years.

I got mine from Best Buy but I imagine anyplace like Radioshack or NewEgg would also be a good bet.

I think I had mentioned on here the fear of leaving my son in the back seat of my car a while back. Thankfully I never even came close.

Then I read this, a big fat punch to the gut. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...T2009030602446

If it happened to me, it would tear me apart and destroy me. I don't know how those parents can manage, at all.

The grief and guilt he feels I can't even imagine....

I hope he gets help to deal with it.

I lost a nephew that way a few years ago. In fact, my sister-in-law did an interview about it after the fact.

A bunch of ignorant people think that could never happen to them because they are "too responsible." Well, it can.

Brutal. Going through that as a parent has to be a complete nightmare.
