Saw a Radio Shack ad tonight on TV: on sale for $39.99 for Father's Day. Perfect timing, as my original one stopped working this past weekend. But, for $40, I don't mind considering this "disposable" after a years' service. Well, 6 days short of a year. Not too shabby for the $48 I paid for it, and the service I got out of it. Hopefully the second one will last longer.
