Congrats; my Nexus 7 just arrived.

Earlier this morning, the Clips were all selling at the BF prices. I'll continue monitoring the MP3 players throughout the holidays for any deals.

BTW, what size did you get?
I got the 4GB. I also got a 32 GB card. So not likely to actually need another one. But it's so cute! Orange

So prices have really come down. Wonder how long it would take before you'd recover the investment today in something akin to New England climate?

YW; glad to be of service.

My toys are starting to trickle in now. Roku HD yesterday, Nexus 7 today, and hopefully Kindle Fire tomorrow. Still have to get to Costco to pick up the Galaxy Tab 2. The UPS guy will be quite busy over the next few days.
Are these all for presents or are you a tablet junkie?!

The Nexus is mine and the Galaxies are possible gifts.

While setting up a Fire for a non-techie friend, I wanted to get one for myself if the price dropped to $129 again. It did, so I got it. I like its interface, so it'll make a great stay-at-home cloud device for my Amazon content.

OK; I don't know anything about handbags, other than Coach is expensive.

I hear ya. I nearly popped for the lime green one. But I distracted myself with a banana and overcame the temptation.

Still, it's a way cool color

I managed to not order a new iPad! Yay for me! I did, however, get a nice WD Passport external hard drive (2 terabytes), which I'd been meaning to pick up for a long time. It arrived today, I will reformat it tomorrow and start moving some things over onto it. Both my husband and I will be using it.
I love my passport! It's only 500GB which is why I want a 2TB too but I have to get it locally. I just don't trust Hard Drives being shipped here anymore. It seems every drive that is sent to me has failed at some point but everything I bought Local is still going. The problem is some drives I can only get online. It's only happened since I moved here 7 years ago so I have theories.

I wish solid state drives would come down in price!

I've had bad luck with external Seagate drives but great luck with WD Passport drives. FWIW.

That is too long, by that time I will have moved and you won't be able to include it in the price for the house, not in Sweden. If I'd recoup it in ten years it'd be worth considering. I think this might be a reason we are so slow to adapt here, that and the six months with no sun

A lot depends on the local power company (ours pays back a premium on all output, higher than you pay to get power used).

Properly designed, with batteries, etc, you'll have more into it, but will be able to sever ties to the grid when power is off (here, it's snow - been off for up to 5 days). That should mean you save on a generator (purchase, storage, maintenance and the fuel storage to use it).

You still need a way to cook (not gonna run an electric stove/oven on it). Propane or butane based are best bets (butane is cheap, easy to store and carry with you; seems every asian store carries portable butane stoves, here).
