Magellan Meridian Color Traveler GPS Value Pack with 64 MB Secure Digital Memory Card - 49% Off - A Savings of $295.
The Magellan Meridian Color Traveler kit comes with everything you need for navigating unfamiliar city streets--as well as tracking through your favorite mountain trails. The kit includes the MapSend DirectRoute CD-ROM (for street-level map detail), a 64 MB Secure Digital memory card, vehicle mounting bracket, and cigarette lighter power adapter (with PC data cable). It also offers easy-to-read navigation screens, good-sized buttons and a thumb directional pad on the front, and WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation Service) for 3-meter accuracy.
Compared to Magellan's portable Sportrak line, the Meridian is bulkier both in weight (8.5 ounces with batteries compared to the Sportrak's 6.1 ounces) and overall dimensions--6.5 x 2.9 x 1.2 inches (W x H x D)--making it not quite as pocketable for use while walking or hiking (unless you have cargo pants).
The bright color screen measures 2.2 x 1.75 inches and has a decent 160 x 120 pixel resolution. We found it to be nicely readable in the car and in most outside conditions, though it wasn't at its best in direct sunlight. As with cell phones in the car, you will have to be wary with your usage. The Meridian Color can be a bit distracting while you're driving as you have to read the screen (though there are audible prompst) rather than hear a voice providing exact turning instructions (a feature of the Magellan Roadmate).
We've known several new GPS owners who have been frustrated at the need to purchase additional software to make their new device road-ready. The inclusion of the MapSend DirectRoute CD-ROM (compatible with Windows only) makes this kit invaluable, and we hit the ground running (well, driving really) within an hour of opening the box.
With a selected map region loaded into the memory, simply press the Goto button and select either a new or previously loaded waypoint or a point of interest (such as an airport or sports arena) to navigate to via a street route. After a bit of calculating, we were presented with a turn-by-turn journey that we could follow while driving. As we neared each turn, the Meridian Color emitted a set of beeps to warn us (which elevated to an urgent beeping when we were right on top of the turn). We used this to plot a course to Seattle's Space Needle, and it produced acceptable results (though, if you're familiar with the terrain, you may know better shortcuts). If you turn off the Meridian while following a route (say if you take a coffee break), you can return right back to it once you turn the device back on.
Magellan's Meridian series offers Secure Digital (SD) memory card expandability, which is a bonus for adding a large amount of map data (especially for long trips). However, we were disappointed at its placement within the device behind the batteries rather than an external slot. This won't be a problem for most users, but it will be annoying if you've got a number of maps spread across several cards.
We experienced good battery life during our test (Magellan boasts 13 hours of continuous use with 2 AA batteries), and the cigarette lighter adapter was instrumental in preventing battery drain.

The film barrier is broken. For years digital cameras have suffered a much lower resolution than film cameras. With this 16.7 Megapixel camera from Canon, that barrier is broken. The successor to Canon's 11.1-megapixel EOS-1Ds SLR introduced in 2002, the new 16.7- megapixel EOS-1Ds Mark II camera utilizes a full-size 24x36mm CMOS sensor that eliminates focal length conversion factors, and features dramatically improved image quality made possible by the combination of new image sensor technology together with Canon's exclusive DIGIC II image processor. The new CMOS sensor features larger microlenses over each photosite compared to the EOS-1Ds resulting in an improved signal-to-noise ratio. On-chip noise reduction has also been improved to produce a cleaner signal before the image data is transferred to the DIGIC II image processor. The DIGIC II processor in turn produces rich, high-chroma color gradations for more naturally rendered images. Indeed, it is the combination of Canon's proprietary CMOS sensor and DIGIC II technology that permits the EOS-1Ds Mark II camera to provide what was once considered near impossible: high definition at high resolution with extremely low levels of false color artifacts.

Samsung's high-definition HL-R4667W DLP projection TV is loaded with exclusive, video-enhancing features and all the connections you need to make HD viewing as simple and as flexible as possible. The set's broad, 46-inch screen is configured in a 16:9 aspect ratio that matches the dimensions of today's HDTV broadcasts and most DVD movies. And, measuring just 43 inches across and a mere 14 inches deep, the set's ultra-slim bezel and lightweight design enable it fit where other projection and big-screen sets won't.
Topping its stellar features is a built-in ATSC (DTV) tuner, so you'll be set to pull free high-definition programming right off the airwaves. The set is outfitted for easy digital cable reception, too, with a CableCARD slot that saves the hassle and bulk of using a stand-alone set-top box.
The secret to this DLP (Digital Light Processing) projection set's quality is its Emmy-winning technology from Texas Instruments. Samsung has combined its proprietary Cinema Smooth Gen-5 HD light engine and advanced optic enhancements with a single, 0.55-inch digital micromirror device (DMD) capable of generating high-definition video images with film-like resolution, deep blacks, and robust colors. Cinema Smooth enhances brightness while ensuring an astonishing 2,500:1 contrast ratio.
Texas Instruments' DMD panel is immune to the factors that can cause other displays to deteriorate with use, imparting a longer life expectancy than that of cathode ray tube (CRT) sets, plasma display panels, and liquid crystal display systems (LCD, LCoS, HTPS). A host of advanced digital interfaces and video inputs make non-issues of connectivity challenges and future proofing.
A 3D Y/C digital comb filter dramatically reduces image-edge artifacts while improving transition detail, and the set's HD ultra-fine-pitch (.155 mm) screen further clarifies images, especially when you're viewing high-resolution sources like DVD and HDTV.
Samsung's Cinema Smooth Film Mode 3:2 Pull Down correction circuitry addresses digital distortion in 480i (interlaced) video signals generated from 24 frames-per-second film. Finally, Samsung DNIe video enhancer (Digital Natural Image engine) works with all analog NTSC and wideband video signals for improvements in contrast, white level, and picture detail, incorporating digital noise reduction to improve lower-quality sources.
The set offers digital-video inputs in 2 formats. A DVI-HDTV interface with HDCP copy protection permits all-digital rendering of video without the losses associated with an analog interface, and an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) jack channels both digital audio and video to simplify connections with newer DTV set-top boxes and DVD players by reducing hookups to just a single cable and plug.
Other inputs include dual HDTV component-video inputs (480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i) for high-definition satellite receivers, HDTV tuners, and HD cable boxes with component video outputs (Y, Pb, Pr); 3 each composite- and S-video inputs; and 2 RF coaxial inputs for antennas or older VCRs or cable boxes. An audio/video output--including an optical digital-audio output for passing Dolby Digital 5.1-channel surround programs to a compatible AV receiver--simplifies hookup with external devices.
A 15-watts-per-channel (x2) audio system with a pair of speakers comes with built-in SRS TruSurround XT, which simulates compelling surround sound through any stereo playback system, including headphones and the TV's speakers.
Last but far from least, onboard 2-tuner PIP with side-by-side split-screen viewing grants convenient simultaneous viewing of 2 TV programs, while a supplied universal remote control permits control of the TV, a DVD player, a VCR, and a tuner/surround receiver.

Sony KDE-42XS955 42" Widescreen WEGA Plasma Flat-Panel TV with Integrated HDTV Tuner 54 % Off - A Savings of $3650
Sony's 42-inch KDE-42XS955 gas-plasma television boasts a bright, detailed, and perfectly flat screen, stylish construction, and abundant image enhancements. The screen features a wide, 16:9 aspect ratio to match the dimension of most movies and HDTV broadcasts, and the set is compatible with standard-definition 480i, enhanced-definition 480p, and high-definition 720p and 1080i signals, delivering full-fledged HDTV reception right out of the box via its integrated NTSC and ATSC (HDTV) tuners. It also offers digital cable readiness with a CableCARD slot and the latest digital-video interface, HDMI.
With a plasma screen you get vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile--the KDE-42XS955 is a mere 6.25 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting (for wall positioning, use bracket SU-PW3M). Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems. You do, however, need to be wary of image burn-in (wherein long-held stationary images leave a permanent impression in the screen).
Sony's CineMotion 3:2 pulldown detection and reversal is a handy feature for watching progressive-scan movie programs in their native 24-frame format. Digital video mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.
The set's WEGA Engine system maximizes picture performance from any video source by minimizing the number of digital-to-analog conversion processes. This full digital processing engine includes Sony's MID-X (Multi Image Driver), which maintains the integrity of a converted signal by minimizing image loss in the scaling process.
Digital Reality Creation (DRC) circuitry ensures high picture resolution, while proprietary Direct Digital II circuitry increases a video signal's signal-to-noise ratio before it reaches the DRC circuit, ensuring rich, natural-looking images from any source.

Black & Decker CCC3000 18-Volt Cordless Lawncare Center with Charging & Storage Station - $170 Off - Savings of 47%
We ordered the 18 volt Lawncare Center with some trepidation. WE've had good luck with the bigger Black & Decker cordless gear, like the mulching mower but - even with a relatively small yard, the smaller stuff didn't ast long...but...we took a shot. What a treat. The battery station and tool hangers go right up, very neat,thank you and on the wall and out of the way. Amazingly convenient...as is having three batteries on hand at any time. Sring Trimmer, Hedge Trimmer and Broom all more than enough power. ergonomically on target and get the job done...and at a bargain price. The CCC3000 now joins our Black and Decker 24 Volt lawnmower as an indispensible part of yard care.
They pack a good punch with a fully charged battery, and since there are 3 batteries, I haven't had to worry about running out of charge. The blower is strong enough for driveway sweeping, but I don't see it being very effective for whole yeard cleaning. The string trimmer is the main reason I bought this, and it hasn't let me down. The automatic feeder is great, no moure bouncing and prying to get the line fed correctly. And it has cut through everything I've put in front of it.

This little safe works as it is advertised. The battery operated lock works well, and there is a key override system if the batteries fail. It is an easy way to keep secure passports, cash, jewelry, or other small documents.
However, this safe is not fire resistant, and any thief with basic lockpicking skills could open the key override lock. (on the flip side this is good if the batteries fail and you lose the keys, any locksmith can open the lock as well).
The best would be to secure the safe via the included bolts, otherwise, the safe can easily be carried out by hand. Like I mentioned before, it is a convenient way to keep valubles more secure than in an unlocked drawer, but not something to completely rely on.

I played this game on my old 8 bit Nintendo Entertainment System years ago. It's truly an awesome game. I don't know if the Gameboy Advance version has added anything extra, but I know it didn't need to. The game was perfect years ago, and it's still perfect today. The only problem I had with the 8 bit game was it couldn't be saved and continued at another time. I assume the Gameboy Advance version has a saving feature.
I don't know if the levels were painstakingly designed or just thrown together, but they're absolutely great. Some of them are pretty tough though, especially towards the end where you have to go through all of the tank levels.
Some of the enemies on this game are pretty tough too, particularly the heavyset ones that shake the ground and stun you a bit.
My advice to those playing the game is this: Don't use the warp whistles if you happen to find them. They'll jump you ahead to levels that are so difficult you won't have enough lives and items to be prepared for them. This is a tough game, and it's twice as tough if you try to take shortcuts. Plus you miss so much when you skip levels. You miss frog suits, and takooni suits, and the giant enemies, and all of the fun stuff.
This game just has so much variety. New stuff is everywhere. Play every level and have a good time. Find that level with the giant boot to jump around in too. I love that one.
Of course our pricing engine has done it again. Best price is $17.17.

Combining powerful performance-tracking features with a GPS receiver, the Garmin Forerunner 201 offers runners and hikers a unique way to track their exercise regimens and goals. Unlike Timex's BodyLink sport monitoring system, its main competitor, the Forerunner 201 integrates the GPS receiver into a single body (BodyLink has separate housings for watch and GPS).
At first, the device felt a little bulky on my wrist, both in weight and in size (it measures 3.26 by 1.71 by 0.69 inches). But it really is light enough (less than 3 ounces) so that it felt comfortable and transparent. I did, however, position the band a bit higher up my arm to ensure full mobility of my wrist, as the length of the Forerunner tended to get in its way.
The large display--with equally large, easy-to-read characters--helps you avoid having to squint at the readout. Just a quick glance at your numbers and you'll maintain your training concentration. The six rubber buttons on the front of the chassis are easy to access (unless you're wearing bulky gloves). I easily got the promised 13 hours out of the rechargeable lithium-ion battery. At the end of the day, I'd just recharge it for around two hours and it would be ready for me the next morning.
While this is definitely a workable GPS receiver, the Forerunner is slim on overall GPS features--which is not to its detriment (think of it as a performance monitor with a dash of GPS). That said, the Forerunner was able to pick up a GPS signal just about wherever I went outside (though it had very slight hiccups in the center of downtown). But if you're looking for a full-fledged tracking device, the Forerunner isn't for you.

Sorry for the delay on posting. I have been wrestling with Movable Type and thinking about moving the blog over to it. I spend this weekend setting up some real estate blogs. One of the down sides of getting married is that sometimes your wife decides that your razor is much more effective than hers. Several times now I wandered into the bathroom to start shaving andfind myself dragging a dull blade over my fac, painfully pulling the hairs out instead of cleanly cutting them off.
So I went searching for a solution. I found it in this Conair Wet/Dry Shaver. Silky legs and underarms are just a quick shave away with this rechargeable shaver. Waterproof enough to submerge for short periods in the tub or for longer use in the shower, the shaver can be used with shaving cream or dry. Engineered for a close shave, the dual foil cutting blades move independently to follow body contours. A special trimmer for the bikini area or longer hair pops up for better visibility. Fully charged, the shaver gives about 25 minutes of shaving time. Keep the shaver in the recharging stand and it's always ready to go. Our pricing engine has found it for a great price at Drugstore.com $19.79 for a shaver that retails for $54.99. Amazon has it FOR $23.99
Most importantly she's never felt the need to use my razer again.

One of things I try to mention on the blog on cooking days is the need to be more involved in your food preparation. Fast food simply isn't healthy at all. By actively preparing your food, you can take control of your food life. Here's another great way to take control of what you eat with the Simac MX700 PastaMatic Pasta Maker.
Fresh pasta is delicious and this pasta maker is just the unit to use.
This well-designed pasta maker brings the ideal within reach--homemade fresh pasta on the table in 15 to 20 minutes. The PastaMatic does it all, from mixing up pasta dough to pressing it into shape. Plus it's a pleasure to use.
Clear instructions (complete with endearing Italian translation quirks!) lead you through the mixing and kneading processes. Achieving the proper dough consistency is the trickiest part, and the instructions offer ample help. Then comes the excitement: extruding dough through one of the six pasta shapes. Cooks of all ages will want to watch as macaroni, spaghetti, or linquine noodles spill out. The fresh pasta cooks up quickly--usually in two to three minutes--and you've got one of life's true pleasures on the table.
For all its workhorse capabilities, this automatic pasta maker is remarkably compact, quiet, and efficient. It's only 10 inches square, and there's storage in the back for the cord and the pasta shape discs. A recipe book is included to tempt you with spinach fettuccini, potato gnocchi, ravioli, and more.

As you may or may not know I am a HUGE fan of Calphalon. Previously I featured a 9 piece Calphalon cookware set. This bakeware set is a similar great buy for a great set of bakeware. One of the things that seperates Calphalon from other brands is the clear attention to detail.
- Reinforced rolled edges prevent warping; oven-safe to 450 degrees F
- Heavy-gauge carbon-steel construction
- Dishwasher-safe; 10-year warranty
