Jan 19th 2011 9:25AM Funny, I actually returned a Rolex for a Baume Capeland about 10 years ago. The Capeland was elegant and different, the Rolex was loud and me-too.
I still wear the Capeland 1-2 times a week.
Mar 7th 2010 2:46PM I've seen one in person 6-7 times now; It's still ugly as sin.

Having lived in the Valley on-and-off for 25 years I promise you that businesses like this can thrive in other places too.
Dec 30th 2006 9:02PM Costco in Austin, TX had 6 of them as of yesterday and the manager said they'd been there for a few days. Nice enough deal I suppose; 60gb, extra controller and some random game for $699.
The rush of guilt-stricken parents deperate to buy them for their snot-nosed kids is past. All these things are going to do is gather dust.
Nov 28th 2006 12:16AM Sorry, but there are no technologies that will filter out random noise like human conversations.

Jul 30th 2006 12:03PM This makes complete sense. I watch considerably less than I did before having a PVR, even after factoring in commercial skipping. This is primarily due to my willingness to skip a bad show because I know I have something else already recorded and to the fact that I no longer watch TV on impulse. I control the TV now, not the other way around.
Viva la TIVO!!!

Althought "Champing" is the original usage, "Chomping" is fine. Look it up.
Love my DirecTV HD Tivo, and I not about to switch to cable, but I certainly wish they'd do something about the limited, and outdated, feature set.

I've been an early adopter of almost every new technogy since CDs (remember those?), including my very slick 1080P HDTV set. Despite that, and my inital excitement, this one is looking more and more look like something I'm going to sit out for another couple of years. Not only that, I was orignally anticipating purchasing a second 1080P display and Media Center PC to at the same time, it's starting to look like they'll all wait a wee bit longer.
The CE manufacturers are really scr*ewing themselves over with this debacle.
