    Live Coverage of the Apple Event

    That is true. It does fit that niche pretty well. It will be interesting to see where the ipad will land as a device.

    Live Coverage of the Apple Event

    Well it's a big ipod, and most people don't have 16 GB of music so they must have though it was enough. But wouldn't people want to watch HD movies on this? That takes a lot of space though.... so I circle back to my this thing is just weird comment. The iPad is shaping up to be the Tom...

    Live Coverage of the Apple Event

    I guess if you look at it from the perspective that it's an advanced ebook reader it makes sense. A Kindle for $300 or a kindle sized ipod touch for $500.... but even then I guess the ebook fans like them because they're black an white... Hmmm.....this is just a weird little device.

    This thing kind of seems like a joke doesn't it. I mean literally a joke that Apple is pulling on everyone before they release the real tablet. Or are they really serious??? All this hype was for a big ipod touch?

    Which 2TB drives for NAS?

    Looking for very small speaker wall mounts

    I just picked up a HT in a box and want to mount the speakers to the wall on a mount that I can swivel. I just received a set I ordered from Newegg, and will be sending them back because they look incredibly cheap and they are horrible to try and move around. So, I'm looking for...

    Sony Still Losing Money On Every PS3 Sold

    Yeah, that's one of Sony's best techniques. Develop a proprietary media and rip people off with it. I don't like the idea of buying a movie for $30. Maybe I'll change my tune when I get my 1080p TV though.
