    Oh man, I've been wanting a 5 disc carousel for so long!


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    I love how the cordless phones were over 100 bucks. Those now are under 20. Amazing to see where technology has come just in the last 15 years.

    This made me look up the next technology that's going to be used for TV's. OLED's sound like the next big thing with NED's soon to follow. Neat stuff.
