    Windows 7 Upgrade Now Available $49.99 / $99.99 6/26/09-7/11/09

    Ten Technologies About to Go Extinct

    I disagree with #s 1, 3, and 5. They won't become extinct, but they'll become more niche. Landlines are still useful in areas with poor cell reception, and it's useful to have a phone that will still work during an extended power outage or that goes directly to a 911 dispatcher with your...

    Band Of Brothers Blue-Ray $35 @ Amazon

    I picked it up on Amazon a few weeks ago for $37, and it was worth every penny. It's an absolute steal at $35, and nobody who has a blu-ray player should skip this one.

    Planet Earth DVD Set for $24.99 or BluRay for $34.99
