Walmart also injects carbon monoxide into it's packages of beef. This keeps the meat from turning brown.

But how do you know your local grocery store doesn't do the same thing?

My local grocery store has a real butcher shop and cuts/grinds all their meats daily. No reason to do anything to prolong the shelf life.

You'll like it! It's a cute little tablet. Check out the Google play store this weekend. They have a ton of apps and albums on sale. Quickoffice Pro is only .99 this weekend!!

Congrats! I have to wait until Tuesday for delivery of mine. Most of the stores in the area are out of stock and I don't feel like driving 10-20 miles to stores that do have them.

This is done before they get to the stores. It takes specialized equipment and is usually done by the processor. Walmart's meat comes in already packaged. They do not have to have a butcher on payroll. Or the equipment in their stores.
And I agree about Sams. I will buy meat there, but not at Wally World.

Do I have to do anything to it before using it in my clip zip? My camera ones I just put in the camera or computer and it works.
Just put it in and format it; just like your camera. I bought several of that same exact card at Costco yesterday for use in my Clip Zip and Galaxy Player.

As to the app, it has nothing to do with using your Clip Zip. It's for use in Android devices. I have it on my Galaxy Player and it keeps track of how much free and total storage I have on my device and in my cloud accounts. It's a cool app.

I was worried because of the reviews saying it wouldn't format, it ran hot, it died, etc.. I'll give it a try later.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

That isn't the reason I don't buy meat from them. It's usually brown by the time you get it home and smells horrible. There's a whole thread on our town forum about it. Ingles has good fresh quality meat and never had it spoil within days of buying it.

Heading to WalMart today. Got to do some gift shopping. No electronics just toys, clothes and a few children's books. I am excited!

Is class 4 or 10 really any better? Is it worth the cost?

You have a Galaxy Player? Which one? I am getting a 5" today or Monday. Is an older Android a bad thing like an older Apple or Windows software?

Apples are suppose to help too. They help me. I can do Zantac, but not Prilosec, Nexium, etc. Don't know the difference, but they won't work for me. But apples make a huge difference for me.

The higher speed classes, like class 10, are important for video cameras, etc., that make large files quickly. They can be helpful with still cameras in terms of being ready for a second shot, if your camera can take advantage of it. It would usually say so in the documentation.

It's not a factor for MP3 playback or an ereader, as far as I've ever seen.
