Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you... (Not sure if this should go here or not, but I figured it was the best spot since it's tech-toy related. If the powers-that-be feel it should be someplace else, my apologies.)
I'm in the market for a soundbar to go with my new TV and electronics setup. Having a bit of trouble sealing the deal because I'm on a budget and I'm looking for something with a minimum of 4 inputs (for the TiVo, Blu-ray player, Wii and a line-out from my PC) as well as an FM antenna, and have had no luck so far finding something to suit my needs. The soundbar I had my parents buy about a year and a half ago for one of their TVs (a Yamaha YAS-71) had all this, but unfortunately it seems to have been discontinued because I can't find it anywhere reputable. Would rather not buy a receiver because I have a small apartment and my electronics setup is stretched to the limit as is (and I'm thinking about adding a 360 + Kinect down the line as well). Any suggestions?
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.
I'm sure most of you have seen an article about Steve Jobs' open letter to the music industry. The bottom line is that he's suggesting that music companies should scrap the piracy protection software for electronically distributed music.
