  1. This is no good for us Verizon peeps

    This I completely disagree with. Prior to the breakup of AT&T they were developing DSL, had plans to lay fiber optic across the nation, and had a roll-out plan for home internet. Hadn't the gobment broken them up, we, the consumer, would have had home internet access decades earlier. The breakup of United Aircraft and several similar companies directly led to the mess we have with the airlines today. UA was revolutionizing air travel, the integration of engine management systems into the cockpit were a reality nearly 60 years ago because of this large company. Breaking a large company for the 'good of the consumer' does not benefit the consumer. The GE's, UTC's, and Microsoft's of the world are still some of the greatest sources of American R&D.

  10. Which is the best cell phone service provider?

  12. HDMI Cables

    Harmony remote will fix the input switching problem. As for the number of cables, at least 2-3 HDMI cables are better than 6-9 component In theory, the HDMI cable should give a better picture since there will be no D/A and A/D conversions.
