download a calibration disc and do it yourself (search for Avia calibration) getting a guy to come in MAY be a little more precise if you're anal as he'll use some instruments to gauge the exact readings

Spent 12 hours all over metro Van, mostly at Metrotown and Pacific Centre. Actually wasn't too bad..I almost expected worse. There were lineups at a lot of stores though. Just ended up buying a bunch of clothes. Sales were kinda shitty.

I bought the 55' led samsung !

Today was the best experience I had with Future Shop. The sales guy was nice enough to bring the TV out of the store and load it into my vehicle. He was a younger kid, probably a seasonal sales guy. I tipped him $10 and he refused to take it at first but eventually took it.

Overall good boxing day.

Not much this year, but everything went smooth sailing in Vancouver atleast. Avoided malls other than Brentwood for grabbing Ass Creed for 20 bucks. Then GT5 at Walmart for 20 bucks. A copy of Kaspersky Internet Security for 20. Grabbed the 16GB Class 10 SD card by Sandisk from Futureshop for 25, then went to Best buy and grabbed a copy of Fast Five for 13. Since I was around the area, I decided to pop into Livestock to check out the sales and got a pair of Puma Dallas for $50.

Went home, forgot I had to go to Imperial Hobbies. Jumped back in my car and drove to Richmond. Curse throughout the whole time while I was driving on No.3. Finally got to Imperial hobbies, place was a Zoo and they ran out of Tamiya side cutters/snippers. Left that place then went to Staples then Ikea.

Spent 20 mins looking for parking at IKEA. People don't fucking obey the arrows when they're in the parking lot so i was raging like a mad cow. While i was looking for parking I saw Diggy. Was quite amused with his hair still in the signature shape while the rain was falling down hard. Anyway, bought 2 fucking hot dogs and a drink.

Shitty day.

ahh yes... I HATE that. All the new tv's have a "realistic" setting. Or a "smoothing" setting. Turn that isht off and it's way better. I got a headache from my TV until I figured out how to turn it back to a regular one.

It makes everything look like a soap opera... lol

Went home empty handed.

Never going to store crash again.

Maybe the plasma was 720p and the LCD was 1080p?

The Source had the ipod touch 8gb for $169.99. So, that was the best price yesterday.
