Links for a Lazy Monday

Not too much going on today. I am giving blood at 1pm and I never really enjoy doing that. Here are a couple links that might be of interest.

- If anyone wants an HD-DVD player for their Xbox it's only $50 at Best Buy.

- So I was at Best Buy yesterday, buying some stuff for my sweet new PS3 and I saw that Halo 3 themed 'rollers and the legendary edition of Halo 3 was priced super cheap. I decided to take a risk and purchase them and put it up on eBay. If it doesn't get above the price I paid for it I'll just keep it. I could use 4 controllers anyway and you know I always wanted a Master Chief Helmet.

- Square Trade, the company that issues the warranties for the Xbox 360 said that 16.4% of all 360's fail. Microsoft countered by saying it is merely conjecture and that the methodology they used was faulty.

I agree with Microsoft, I bet that figure is waaay off. Seeing that almost half of KofC has lost their box to the RROD, I bet it's way too low.

- Also I can't stop thinking about where Josey's 360 is. Josey please comment below on what exactly your note said that convinced the Mail man to pick up a UPS packaged. Did you say in the note that it was an Xbox 360?

- You might have noticed that the functionality of the Shout Box kinda sucks now. The 3 months of the advanced version that I purchased has run out. I don't think I am going to keep paying for it as no one seems to use it any more. But any thoughts about it are welcome.

- Last but not least is the music video from Jimmy Kimmel Live. As I think some of you have seen the video with Sarah Silverman and Matt Damon, last night Kimmel had a response. I have no idea how they got so many celebrities to go along with it. It was pretty good.

I wrote on a sheet of computer paper in large print "Please take out going mail" this was after the box and been sitting there for over a week. Now it is gone I can only assume it is on its way to being fixed.

I would be interested in seeing where this package is... do you have the tracking number?

I wish I could have seen the luck on the USPS guy.

I read that Wii article this morning as well. It makes me wonder how much money could be made by a drinking establishment if they offered 4 person Wii play. Of course any vandalism to said Wii would result in a fine and removal from the premises. Ten bucks for 4 people and one game of something, winner gets a free drink? Hmmm....personally I would rather throw real darts instead methinks.
