it was a pricing error I think they only honoured the ones that were purchased on the spot. UNLESS, you're using it to price match at another store..?

how does that work? Is it a freeware that you can burn onto disc/load it to a USB and calibrate ethrough PS3/BD player?

I got XBR6 from few years back that I just took the picture settings off avs forum/c-net...but every units slightly different.

would it work for computer monitors as well?

long story short, i bought 2 tv's online. i tried to cancel online and over the and phone, but they said it's being shipped already.

if anyone is interested in picking up the Samsung 43" 720p 600Hz Plasma HDTV (PN43D450) off me, i'm willing to sell. i could return it to bestbuy, but i would have to find a buddy with a big enough car to fit the TV in.
i've got receipt and everything!

Don't think I've seen "hunting knife" and "leatherman" used together. Ever.

SOG knives are on sale on Amazon.ca it seems, but you should check out warriors and wonders prior to getting an idea of what to get. Options would include fixed blade vs folding, etc.

Call this number to cancel if you still want to: 1 866 853 1168.

I also ordered from Best Buy. When I called their customer service they gave me the same BS "oh your order has shipped... we can't do anything". So I called this number and they cancelled it no problem.

I already received the email saying the order has been stopped and I will see the refund in 3-5 days on my credit card.

Couple of questions for you experienced online shoppers. (newb here)

For those who have ordered online before, how long did it take Best Buy to send you a tracking number?

For those who ordered online at Best Buy on Boxing day, have you gotten your tracking number yet? My order still states "in progress"

Go on the BB website and check your order details. There is a 'track this shipment' button if your order has been shipped already

are you looking for something to use for hunting? or just as a "look at me" piece?

i'm not sure on the quality, as i haven't opened one up, but lordco has a hunters field kit on sale for 49.99 i think it was. has a hard case, several knives and other asst. bits.. like i said, not sure on quality, but seems a decent deal.

Different strokes, different folks. Playbook does web surfing better than Ipad's especially with flash support. For those that have a Blackberry, adding the Playbook tablet with the bridge function is perfect, no need for wifi or additional data plan and all your berry is bridged to the tablet. Also for those that use their berrys and/or Playbooks for work, RIM encryption is far greater than any other and the smaller size of the Playbook makes it easier to carry around for work.

There are some things that the Playbook doesn't do as well as Droid or Apple tablets, ie.. Apps, but every person has a different need. I have 4 Playbooks now, mostly for work, we tried using the IPads for work but they were a disaster and tossed them. I also have a Touchpad and Transformer and I'd say Playbook and Transformer are my favorite ones.

I'd consider the playbook now as they dropped the price. When I first saw it in stores, it was within $100 of the ipad, and I knew it to be doomed.

We can sit and debate about what tab is better, but in the minds of average consumers there is ipad on one side, and everyone else on the other. Not a bad position for apple to be in. Kudos.

But seriously, for $200 you are in an entry level playbook, that as it has been pointed out, could tether to your bb phone. Not a bad deal. If I'm walking out the door with a near or $500 tablet, its gonna be an apple or transformer.

should be rephrased to, everyone knows what Apple products are... but only 50% of the world knows about other tech..

and i hate it when i mention to a non techie that im looking at "insert electronic device" and they say, oh yea, i have an Apple "insert device here" too...

I just got an ipad2 not that i don't know toher tablets out there. Just that itune have a lot more free sowftware and is super easy to find the programs u need. Other tablets do have something like itunes but not as much software and some of them is hard to sort.

Also with Ipads their resale values stays pretty high vs Playbook or other tablets. If I do ever want to sell I cans till get a decent amount back.
