Christmas wish list!

I'm stealing VR's idea and making it a thread.

I want the new program for my LiveScribe to work on 64 bit machines to come out.

I want an infrared keyboard from ThinkGeek.com

And a m-Edge cover and light for my Kindle.

And world peace if you've got the time...

I've been a very good girl this year, except for July-Aug. I'm hoping Santa leaves me a nice big Fictionwise gift certificate in my stocking.

Be careful what you wish for, Slite. I have a popcornhour A-110. It's sitting on the shelf. Big problems. 1. It converts anamorphic widescreen to 4x3 letterbox. The response from popcornhour was "use your TV zoom to expand it." Many (most?) TV's don't have a zoom for HD format. 2. Doesn't handle all WAV files. Ones with title information don't play. No workaround. (I maintain my audio in WAV files to retain as much of the original audio information as possible. Hard drives are cheap nowadays...)

and 3. Build quality is poor. when I turned mine off, I always got a big POP in the audio receiver. Something is not grounded properly in the hardware. I would have turned it in for repair/replacement except 1 and 2 made me put it in the scrap heap.

*sigh* Well, I'm not really surprised... It did sound too good to be true But it's just that my old Xbox gen 1 isn't really equipped to handle my media anymore. It's too slow. Oh well, guess I'll just have to wish for a HTPC instead

you know, you can actually make popcorn in a really big pot on the stove. or in fact in the microwave. i googled it once and found literally dozens (possible hundreds) of methods / recipes, including more than one requiring only a paper sack and a microwave.

(you're welcome. )

Look at the bright side. I saved you from wasting some money....

Queen Zelda, there is a market out there for a media player that reads audio and video from USB 2.0 ports and plugs into a TV/home theatre. That way you can use a remote control to play media, instead of a keyboard to a computer. It's small, like the liseuse market. Like the e-ink liseuse, there isn't one that actually does the job right, yet. Popcorn hour is the latest company to offer one...And they do software updates, just like the e-ink liseuse makers, but the problems I mentioned they consider to be not fixable with their hardware...

It is. 110 is the caliber of the popcorn shells which explode inside the "A" (atomic) popcorn reactor. This particular model is best used outside in Am's back garden, next to her Burning Bra BBQ Pit.
