    Can you guys tell me about MiFi and the iPad?

    I love my MiFi. Had it since August '09 & use it with my MacBook Pro and iPad. I work for a government agency that puts significant internet blocks on our computers, so I bring my MiFi to work with the iPad when I need to get to sites the blocking software will not let me go. Frequently, these...

    My interesting iPad story

    Ron- I, too, have had an iPad since day one. I flew to Denver on 7/20 whipped that sucker out as soon as electronics were permitted. I wanted to re-watch a film I am reviewing for the forum. I never got to it. Luckily, I had one seatmate & an empty in the middle. We were in the last row. My...

    Blu-ray Review HTF Blu-Ray Review: "From Paris With Love" (BD + Digital Copy)

    David, Southpaw: I'll give the restaurant sequence another listen. Perhaps I should save '5/5' for reference discs. Still learning what the membership needs in a BD review. I will say I thought the gun chatter, at times, was more realistic than typical movie cannons. I found Wax's silenced...

    Weekly RoundUp 1-12-2010

    Rick- Do you know where I can buy some 2 disc BD blanks? You were reading my mind about Cast Away. I got the BD at Best Buy for $9.99 and I want to pull my SD extras disc and store it with the BD feature. Whoops! I found them on eBay! What I also need is a couple of the multi-disc cases. The...

    Weekly RoundUp 1-12-2010

    Yes, Cameron, considering that Lost 5 just streeted over a month ago, that's an excellent price. I don't have 1 & 2 on BD and might pick 'em up. Of course, $24.99 would be even nicer !

    BD Players and Supplies Cables - What Gives?

    My first BD player, from Panasonic, and my Toshiba HD DVD player both came with 3' HDMI cables. I was shocked in both instances to find the cables included.

    Weekly Roundup 12-1-2009

    Mike- A visit to my Union, NJ Costco this morning showed the Terminator Salvation BD Director's Cut at $18.99. The standard edition is only $2 less. A good deal on a mediocre movie. Thanks for continuing to do a great job. I never shop until I consult the Roundup.

    **** WARNER ANNOUNCEMENT: DVD TO BLU-RAY UPGRADE PROGRAM ****

    Okay...When Warners set up the Red2Blu program, I sent them 24 qualifying HD DVD sleeves and, to date, received three Harry Potter films. I jumped on this program as soon as it was announced and ended up with nearly zippity-do-dah. I wish I could get more excited about the new program...

    I was pleasantly surprised yesterday, as I wandered the racks at Best Buy, and found one lonely copy of John Adams-BD for $24.99. I also nearly had a heart attack as I realized it was an HBO product that was being significantly discounted!!

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: Star Trek

    Jason-I was a bit surprised to see the notice. While Amazon always notifies, it never is as early as this one was. I was HOPING that it might show up a day or two early, but no such luck. I am sure it will be resting comfortably inside my storm door when I get home today.

    LOTR on Blu-Ray: would you buy the theatrical or wait for Extended Edition?

    I think the pool of BD buyers is still too small to consider a dual release. Why not a 2 disc set with the extended cut + extras on disc 1 and the theatrical cut on disc 2?

    Amazon BOGO sale on BDs 1/1/08 (deal is dead)

    Got the Potters on HD DVD for $32 in the last BOGO sale. That was still 2007 & I got the additional 10%. This time I picked up 28 Days/Weeks Later on BD for $28. Got the Amazon Prime shipping, but I sure wish Amazon would offer 10% off hi-def again. With that discount I always checked the site...
