I always buy one Christmas gift for myself each year. 😀
I like to run things into the ground, so the last DVD player I bought was from 2002. It still works, but I wanted something with some HD (high-def) to it, so I ordered a new one.
I just got the new Panasonic Blu-Ray machine in the mail. I knew the product description said something about wifi on it, but I guess I'm a little behind on these things. I had no idea what a DVD player was doing with wifi.
Anyway, I hook it up, put in my network SSID and password, and by golly, tho mofo is online. It does Skype, YouTube, several social networking sites, has a USB port, lots of things.
Who'd a thunk it? I thought a DVD player was still just a DVD player.
The manufacturer included a coupon in the box for a free copy of Avatar on Blu-Ray. Yep! I want it. :up:
By the way, a 3-foot HDMI cable at Wal-Mart costs about $20. The same thing in generic at the local computer store is $3.99. Always check the geek computer stores (NOT Best Buy) for cabling of any type.
