    Yesterday while at my local Best Buy (Westminster), they had the obligatory Grinch cardboard display. What caught my attention was that the widescreen version was priced at $19.99 while the full-frame (sic) version was priced at $22.99.
    I don't know if it was a mistake or if they were both ringing up at $19.99 (or $22.99 for that matter), but I wasn't about to rock the boat if it was correct.
    If true, this puts Joe in somewhat of a dilemma: save $3 and put up with the black bars, or pay a premium to fill his screen--I could only imagine the internal conflict which would undoubtedly ensue.

    Pay more for less picture... There's a sweet irony about it.
