Have you seen how much certain electronic superstores are charging for HDMI cables? A “Monster” 4-foot HDMI cable goes for upwards of $150! And it’s just a cable!
We bought ourselves a flatscreen TV in October (our CRT was on its last legs) and I found myself in the market for an HDMI cable. Fortunately, I was able to pick up a 6 foot cable for $15 locally through CompUSA. I’ve heard there are cheaper alternatives online, including Monoprice, but I haven’t tried them as yet.
The cable gouging I’ve seen reminds me of the days of yore when you’d hear electronics sales people attempt to convince customers that a 100 watt receiver sounds better than a 60 watt receiver. What nonsense!
Rant aside – enjoy the ‘toon! And don’t forget, PC Weenies books are on sale until December 15th – after which the prices go back up. “Rebootus Maximus” is the perfect geek gift to give for the holidays. And it’s world famous!
As always, my sincere Thanks for your support!
stay ‘tooned, :)
