Retail Chains To Strike Back Against Online Vendors
I remember back in 2008 when I went to the apple store in my local mall and saw an external hard drive. Of course it was over priced since it was in the apple store, so I instead used one of the showroom macs to purchase a WD 2TB external HDD from new-egg. It did not matter that what what apple was selling was "unique" or of "higher quality".

Makers Keep Flogging 3D TV, Viewers Keep Shrugging
Seeing Avatar in theaters is the only time when 3D enhanced my experience rather than detracting from it like all the other movies over the past few years that used 3D as a last second gimmick. So it is possible to make 3D work if done right but I cant yet speak for the quality of the 3D TV experience. IF there is enough content of the same 3D quality as Avatar, AND the quality of ordinary 2D content on 3D tvs is not compromised, AND if the slight peeves like glasses, and viewing angle are overcome, AND when the price of 3D TV becomes comparable to that of their 2D counterparts, THEN there will be a feasible market for 3D TV and I will gladly go out and buy one.
