DLP TV's are nice

My friend Steve has one of the new DLP TV's made by Samsung. Here is an informative article about these TV's. Sam Ruby was impressed, and Steve Loughran thought it was interesting too.

Having watched many things, including New England Patriots football games in Hi-Def on this TV, I can very much recommend them. The price is right compared to Plasma. It seems almost everyone who has not gone Hi-Def that I talk to says they are "saving for a Plasma" or "waiting for Plasma to get cheaper". I always recommend that they check out the DLP TV's.

Steve will be especially bummed about this, because labeling the Video inputs is not allowed on his model, much his his annoyance.

How to prolong lithium-based batteries

"How to prolong lithium-based batteries" is a very interesting article on how to treat your laptop battery. Some of the pithy bits are to store your laptop with a 40% charge and to never buy extra batteries, since lithium batteries have a 2-3 year shelf life from the date of manufacture!

I have an LG 5350 cell phone which has the worst battery meter in the world. It has 4 bars, but if the meter shows three bars and I make or receive a call, it will almost certainly drop the meter down to zero and beep at me to change the battery.
