One step forward, two steps back?
Why go back to disk? Do I actually have to go to a shop to get it, or wait for it to ship?
I would think it's more convenient to download it, have it on a share somewhere, and listen to it allover the house? Although I occasionally still buy CDs, I ripped my whole collection to FLAC long time ago.
And, for that special music, HD music has been available online for quit some time. I've been buying mine from HDtracks, DRM free, 96/24 and higher, in all kinds of lossless formats, with liner notes and all...
Re: While electronics is great fun
They actually do carry quite some relevant stuff, I got several Arduinos and Rasberry Pis from them, and they have lots of robotics and other projects. Besides possibly being useful for home-automation, they are fun to do with kids...
Re: Once you've had 27 inches you never go back...
I agree, am very happy with my 27"Apple Cinema display, same 2560x1440, but a 'bit' more expensive than the ones reviewed here...
My 15 year old daughter came by this 2 months ago and convinced me to 'pledge a donation' for the project. My kit is currently on it's way. Can't wait to experiment with it, and connect it up to the Arduino...

However, I can find myself in the recommendation for the Sennheisers. I had a pair of bluetooth Sennheisers for my son that had a loose internal wire, and they sent me a replacement immediately (even though there's no distributor for the model here and they had to send it from another country!) That's what I call service!
I don't have a Nokia
So I voted for it!
I have always used internet from my phone. Problem is to set it up. On WinMo there's about 4-5 screens to go through, but I can get it to work. On the iPhone (my current) just enter the APN and it works (great!).
I tried to set it up for a friend on his Nokia N97 last week, I gave up...
