What the heck? First Nintendo fails to capitalize on the Internet and 'net-based gameplay. Now this? Nintendo: get your freakin' act together. It seems increasingly so that the only next-gen console I'll be buying is the PS3. Stupid Nintendo.

I re-did my ringtones today. I last worried about them May 8, 2004, but this time I got a little fancier. First, the list: Carey - Amazed Golf/Work - Forest for the Trees Friends - Good Intentions Family - We are Family General - You Can Call Me Al Those are the groups, of course, […]
The new house is good (more on this in the coming days and weeks, I'm sure). I am wondering, though, if there are any simple, small wireless webcams that perhaps have a microphone. I'm looking to use it for a baby monitor of sorts so that we can hear one bedroom from every part of […]
Okay, so this hasn't happened yet, but we're getting warmer: Thanks, Gizmodo.
I got a Dyson DC15 today. It's nicknamed "The Ball" because, like AC/DC, it has big balls. Well, one of 'em anyway. Normally, of course, I wouldn't spend $635 on a stupid vacuum cleaner. I'd live with sawdust floors before I'd spend more than a month's rent on something that sucks. Fortunately, I paid only […]
Yesterday I wrote about how I was considering the BlackBerry 7100 and the Treo 600. I'm no longer considering them, and with that, T-Mobile has pretty much left my list of desired cell phone carriers. That leaves Cingular, which has absolutely no presence in Erie, PA and Verizon, which has shitty phones and with whom […]
Carey and I are looking to move from our separate cell phone plans (Cingular for me, Cellular One for her) to a T-Mobile plan. The only other carriers in our region are Cellular One (very small) and Verizon Wireless, and I'll never use Verizon again if I can help it. So, T-Mobile it is.
I'm waffling on the whole HDTV bit. Granted, I only posted yesterday, but I've done a fair amount of research now and I've all but decided on the Sony KDF60XS955 60" Rear-Projection LCD TV. Retails for about $3600, but I'm pretty sure I could get it for just over $3,000. 20" deep and looks like […]
The new house - to which we're getting closer and closer every day - has a big, big, big living room. So big my trusty 36" Wega (bought before the Wega line turned to crap) might look rather small. So on to bestbuy.com I go, only to find the "Philips 50" Plasma HD-Ready TV with […]
Carey and I are looking for a good washer and dryer. Something that will last awhile. Front-loaders (for the washer and dryer) were recommended by the lady at Lowe's, and they range anywhere from $500 to $1500. We've got some good coupons, and we like to invest in quality stuff, so don't hesitate to list […]
I'm considering purchasing a Dyson DC-14 Animal (the purple one, and not the DC-07). It retails for $550 but is on sale somewhere for $450. I have a 15% off coupon and I would save another 10% if I put the purchase on a new store credit card. ($550-$100) * 0.85 * 0.90 = $344.25 […]
Woohoo!!! I say again, woohoo!!!
If this is ever released, it will sell for quite a bit of money. WOW. Found via Kevin Fox.
I must admit to feeling a bit burned by the Nintendo DS. The darn thing has all of four games (ok, slight exaggeration). Pretty pathetic, really. Anyone want a Nintendo DS + Tiger Woods for, I dunno, $150, including S&H?
Apparently I have to buy a new TiVo today. The one I have has died. Died died died. It just says "Welcome. Powering Up…" forever. I don't mind too much. The toughest thing will be re-creating the Season Passes. I only had about four or five shows saved that I'd not yet watched or wanted […]
