I second the advice of trying them out. Be sure to get a prolonged look at every display you try. Don't forget to adjust the brightness until you find something you're comfortable with.

Canon i450 Woes!

The best protection for the iPhone is responsibility. Get the bumper and be careful with the phone at all times.

I'm not sure if you could do it with ESPN's app or not, but I use it to track baseball games all the time. They seem to have a lot of sports on there, at least on the US version. I'm not sure if...

It's MLB's terms of service and by using it you're bound to it. As others have said, there are laws covering this and while you may think the terms of service are little more than some fine printing...

I was afraid of the router needing replaced. Of course, it has given me six years of service. Looks like I'll be picking one up on Friday.

I remember looking at that printer when it was new. I almost bought a 1020 but found only the 1022 to be Mac-compatible. Use another OS or swap your printer.

This isn't exclusive to the Mac. HP...

The SE/30 actually cannot boot from a CD. Most Macs made prior to 1991 cannot. All SCSI-equipped Macs, however, can utilize a CD-ROM provided a driver is installed in their system folder. (I actually...

My take on this list:

1. Netscape Navigator (1994)--definitely deserving of this spot.
2. Apple II (1977)--also deserving.
3. TiVo HDR110 (1999)--not sure I'd put it this high, but it did make...
