    The 2011 American Idol #10 HTF TOP TEN CHALLENGE: All details here....

    Thank you for keeping us updated on your prize shipments, Jay. Adam had informed me that he thought that the Pacific Boxed Set would be a couple of days behind the rest of the DVDs. I'm glad to hear that everything arrived safely. Enjoy! That completes the contest for this year. And...

    The 2011 American Idol #10 HTF TOP TEN CHALLENGE: All details here....

    Note to NolanJ, Adam informed me that the Pacific Boxed Set shipped separately from the others so you will be getting two packages (perhaps on different days as well). Let us know when you have everything. Thanks.

    Congratulations, NolanJ. Now that the results are "official" I'm going to tell Owner Adam Gregorich to send out your prize package. Let us know when it arrives.

    The Mentalist - season 3 thread

    Once the Sacramento PD find the gun in the folded newspaper complete with hollow bullets it will be evident that Patrick was merely defending himself against a person who was definitely up to no good. I look forward to next season. And with Red John out of the way, "Red Head" can get back with...

    Prize Package Announced! Owner Adam Gregorich has provided me with a list of the titles that will be awarded to the winner of the HTF American Idol Challenge. Assuming that I got everything right here's the list (with links to Amazon so that you can see what the titles are all about). If...

    American Idol - Season 10

    Hanson, I have to agree with you. What started out as a show with a lot of (talent) promise has become a dreadful BORE! I agree with you 100%. Even the invigorated judges' panel can't save this season. Stephen Tyler was a pleasant surprise and J-Lo is a nice addition to any panel. I...

    The 2011 American Idol #10 HTF TOP TEN CHALLENGE: All details here....

    I love the format of this contest, especially since most people are not out of it until the very end. While I haven't done well this year (third from last if I read it correctly at this point) and neither has my "significant other" NYSandy who is bringing up the rear it is an entertaining...

    Apple iPad 2 buyers and owner's thread

    My iPad2 arrived on 4/4/11 (64G Black with 3G AT&T - grandfathered $29.99/moonth unlimited data transferred over without a hitch!). Very, very nice. I have two covers (hey, I didn't go for all 13(?) of them so let it go) the Red Leather one and the Blue Polyurethane one.) The covers are very...

    Body of Proof - Season 1

    I caught the pilot episode and yes, it does have a "Quincy ME" flavor with an attitude. Hope it does well. Did ABC cancel Detroit 1-8-7? They sure went out with a lot of loose threads and story lines hanging out there in the "season finale." A real Godfather-like final 15 minutes. Pity...

    Dheiner and myself are just playin' with all of you by starting off with such a high score. Besides, I have to defend my string of mediocre performances. My list already is beginning to look like Swiss Cheese! What did Yogi say? "It ain't over till it's over!" I'm a little...

    The 2011 American Idol #10 HTF TOP TEN CHALLENGE: All details here....

    Yes, what appears to be a very simple "contest" on the surface actually has quite a bit of strategy involved for those who want to do their homework (monitoring sites like dialidol or whatever it's called. And even then things can be quite unpredictable. I have found in the past that I do best...

    Nicely done, Yee Ming! I had also thought in previous years, "What happens if the 'save' is used by the judges the week that the TOP TEN was to be established and the worst case scenario (or best case in terms of entertainment value) took place?" I think that we should definitely go with...

    Apple iPad 2 buyers and owner's thread

    iPad2 offers a "marginal speed bump and cameras" ?!? I disagree with that assessment because I think that doubling the speed of the processor and increasing graphics rendering by a factor of ~9 along with the cameras is certainly much more than a marginal improvement. There's lots of other...

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: Les Miserables - The 25th Anniversary Concert - Recommended

    I'm a huge fan of this musical having seen it on Broadway five times over the years and having introduced my grandchildren to the Broadway stage through performances of this, my favorite musical. Therefore it's a "must have" for me any time that something involving Les Miz is released. I ordered...

    OS4.3 on the iPhone. When?

    Yes. I didn't notice any big change in 4.3 on my iPad1 so it wasn't a question of wondering if I was missing something important on my Verizon iPhones. Thanks Dave.

    OS4.3 on the iPhone. When?

    Thanks, Sam. I must have missed that during the keynote. I just wish that Apple would have noted this in their promotional materials regarding iOS4.3. There are a lot of people with Verizon iPhones and I bet most of us got promo material from Apple telling us to download 4.3 from iTunes.

    OS4.3 on the iPhone. When?

    Thanks for the information, Dennis. I also have a Verizon iPhone4 and that would explain why my phone's OS didn't update to 4.3. What I don't understand is why the type of iPhone you have (GSM or CDMA) is tied into whether or not you get an OS 4.3 update from OS 4.2.6. Why does the version...

    OS4.3 on the iPhone. When?

    O.K. I keep getting e-mail notifications from Apple regarding OS4.3 on the iPad, the iTouch and the iPhone. I upgraded my iPad (version 1) to OS 4.3 very nicely, but when I plug in my iPhone iTunes tells me that OS 4.2.6 is the current latest version of the operating system for my iPhones...

    I had Ron Epstein put up a banner publicizing the contest and I assume that as soon as people find out that the winner will get a nice bundle of Blu-ray and other DVDs the number of entries will grow. In the past the "Package" has had a retail value of somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 to...

    Apple iPad 2 buyers and owner's thread

    I want to get the 64G AT&T model because I'm grandfathered with the AT&T $29.99/month unlimited data plan or else I would have been tempted to get yours. At this point I'm probably not too far from getting my unit from Apple on-line. They still are saying "ships April 1, Arrives ~April 6th"...
