  1. I managed to snag the last one in my area. 10" touch screen, 1.2 Ghz processor, 1 Gig system memory, 32 Gig storage memory, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth. They came on the market on July 1, for $499. Nobody bought them because they only had 300 apps and the IPad2 was the same price, with 9,000 available apps. On August 20, HP told the vendors to drop the price to $99 for the 16 Gig model and $149 for the 32 Gig. For a buck fitty........I don't give a rat's butt how many apps are available.
  2. I was wanting to upgrade the graphics on my 3+ year-old computer, that was running a GeForce 8400 card with 256 Mb of memory. My problem was I didn't want to replace my 350 watt power supply AND the graphics card. I got a good deal on a Galaxy 210 with 512 Mb memory, $18+ after rebate, but it really didn't make a big improvement in the graphics. Then I found the Zotac GeForce 440 GT with 1 Gig of GDDR5 memory. Tigerdirect has them for $90 and a $20 rebate. The real winner is, this card will run with a power supply of just 300 watts. It takes up 2 slots so I moved my sound card down a slot, to

The synchronization tool let's you adjust the videos in increments as short as 1/100th of a second. You can download a free version that doesn't have all the features of the full version, which currently going for $14.99 US. Racerender

    new camcorder

    Got a nice little pocket camcorder from WalMart.com. They had a combo deal, AGFAPHOTO DV-5000HD with a SanDisk 4GB SDHC card, for $100. The camera shots video up to 1280x720 pix and 5MP stills and 3x digital zoom. The 4GB card will hold 1hr & 25 mins. of video or 1837 5MB pics. Not much as camcorders go, now-a-days, but it's small enough to stick in your pocket and cheap enough to toss in the truck. Still, the video is quite clear. On the youtube video, click on the "HD" button to see high def version. HD video
  5. A Ruger .22cal. Charger that I got at the gun show.

    new laptop

    Picked up a HP G60-121 at Wally Worlds black friday sale. Nothing super-duper but it's faster than I thought it would be and it was just $448. Hooked up a Linksys wireless router to my DSL and was good to go. BTW......I actually had to pay for this one. Microprocessor 2.0 GHz AMD Sempron SI-40 Processor Memory 3072 MB Video Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 8200M Hard Drive 160 GB (5400 rpm) Multimedia Drive SuperMulti 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer Support Display 15.6" Diagonal High Definition HP Brightview Display (1366x768) Wireless Connectivity 802.11b/g WLAN *
  7. My new one. The pic is one I took at the Mississippi River, on Saturday.

  11. It's gonna set in my savings account for a year. After that, I figure all bets are off. If they want it, all they gotta do is tell me where to send it.
  12. It was HP. Kinda makes me wish I had ordered one of their $7,000 Voodoo-based Blackbirds.
  13. I posted this on another forum and just copied it here, so I wouldn't have to type it over. OK, so I want to order a new computer from the factory, a really good one. I call the factory’s on-line store and place the order with my debit card. The order bounces about 3 times for stupid stuff, like the last number of the zip in my billing address doesn’t match what the bank has. After several calls to a very nice young lady in their “Sales Recovery” department, the order gets accepted. Get a confirmation e-mail notifying me of this fact and it list the specs of the computer I ordered, which

    new computer

    Yep, it's 64-bit. This one should last me a while. As games improve, there'll be more showing up that take full advantage of the quad core processors. In a couple of years, I'll probably upgrade the graphics to something that hasn't even been designed yet. May even and a heavy-duty CPU cooler and overclock to around 3.6 - 4 Gb.
