    A Consumer Electronics Association survey (not entirely unbiased, I'll admit) has women prefering a high-def TV over a one-carat diamond. Women have become motivating forces in home electronics sales.
    Interesting article from Wired News: Women Prefer HDTV
    Cheers,

    Thanks, Jan. One of my closest friends, a woman named Erin, is the driving video force in her household. Her boyfriend is into the audio, but Erin is into accurate, calibrated, sophisticated displays. Her primary video engine: a professionally calibrated Toshiba 56H81.

    My wife did buy me the first of the 5 projectors I've had in the last 2 years. [​IMG] Come to think of it, she bought my first set of speakers as well.

    My wife hates my new Panny 47 or she's just to stubborn to admit she likes it. Either way I'm happy as #$@$.

    She works for Pioneer....15 years. Damn that employee price is nice![​IMG]

    Hmm, so when I move back to Grand Forks next month, I should make sure to mention my 53" Panny to all the hot college girls? (since it's kind of a college town and I'm only 23)

    I coulda bought a diamond ring (a small one) for the same money, but I bought a Phillips HDTV instead.

    That little stone is just no good for displaying DVDs.

    One carat? if you were to get a high quality stone, you'd be looking at 10K+.
    Honey.. do you think you'd like this 50" plasma on your finger? [​IMG]

    myself to wife:honey,would you like a new HDTV that we can watch DVD's at their 16x9 greatness and some of your favorite shows in 1080i like CSI and ER or would you like a one caret diamond Ring?
    Wife's answer:After fifteen years you don't the answer to that......the Ring of course,now lets go shopping and while I look around you can stand there in the middle of the store and hold my purse for me.
    me:yes dear.
