    Lots of those pay "channels," fortunately some of them have free trials if there's only one movie you want to see.

    I remember my monthly long distance bill was in the hundreds of dollars.

    I remember in college, I'd started with A T & T, then Sprint gave me $25 to switch to them so I did, then MCI gave me $50 to switch to them, ...and so it went...Sometimes you'd literally get a check in the mail and all you had to do was sign it and you'd switch over again! ;)

I think a maintenance guy entered my place unannounced to check the central air. SNES and AV switch box upside-down on the floor. :O

    Any of my cameras, would have pinged my watch and phone, immediately, if someone entered my space or even comes close to the house.

    Before someone says, you can just cut the power, no, all outside cameras run on 2 year batteries and my router and modem are running on a big UPS. Step in front of one of them, your mug is in the cloud immediately.

Amazon has what I can only assume is some new Earth-friendly fiber padding, instead of bubble wrap, in its padded mailers that flies all over you and sticks to you when you tear it open.

Wamart cancelled my Black Friday online order. I called Cust Serv and they said it was because I hadn't order from them online in a couple years and the item was over $500. I can only buy items over $500 from Walmart in store unless I order online more frequently.???

    "We don't want your $500+ dollars worth of business - go buy from our competition!" Moronic! If the card doesn't get declined, why wouldn't they accept it?

    I called them twice and they gave me two different reasons. I think the price was an error and they are claiming it is something else. Dell laptop was $899 on sale for $699, half way thru the day it changed to $799. BSecond person said he could set up a 45 min window for me to re-order it but both refused to adjust the price back to $699.

So, I'm guessing what we have here is smart phone tech without the screen - TV/monitor is the screen - with minimal peripheral ports. https://www.amazon.com/Quantum-Windows-Baytrail-T-Quad-core-1-33GHz/dp/B00X4O6GRK/ref=olp_product_details?_encoding=UTF8&me=

    Yeah, that CPU is in all kinds of Windows tablets from around 2014. 2GB is actually fine for Win 8/10 and you can run GOG games on it. Not fun for work though.

    A laptop would definitely be a smarter buy for most people.

    Unless you just wanted something to run slides on a sandwich shop menu screen or something. Then this would be great.

    I've been tempted to buy ones of these. Android always seems more zippier on these lower spec devices though... 2gb of memory with Windows 10 sounds a bit nightmarish. If the price point is closer to $40 or $50 I'd probably be more tempted.

    I liked the idea of these when they were in the $599 to $799 range. $1,299 is a lot of coin for what it is. For just a little more money you could build yourself a 16-core monster with AMD's new Ryzen and have space to toss in a dedicated GPU at any given time to really rock and roll.

    Yes, Apple has increased the price of everything they sell, significantly. I've started looking at PC laptops as I'm getting tired of Apple's crap where they seem to only care about making their laptops thinner, at the expense of super shitty keyboards, removal of all but a handful of USB-C ports, gimmicks like the Touch Bar, making machines nigh-impossible to upgrade yourself, and so forth.

    I got one when they were in the $599 to $799 range. Until Apple makes the full leap to their custom ARM chips I can wait. Too pricey for the hardware given.

Starting through ROM Hunter's game pack for 2600 one game at a time by company, starting with 20th century fox. Played Alien (Pac Man clone!) and Alligator People - Pac-Man-ish, but pretty original

Counter-point status message poll: "If you could pick one game that was in development for a console but was released before it was finished to be finally finished and released today, what game would you choose and what console would it be for?"
