    I want to say I paid over $800 for a higher-end Panasonic 27" in 1998, which I kept until a few years ago when I replaced it with a 32" flatscreen from Samsung for half the price. Crazy!

    Won't need to leave the house again to rent movies once you have your Apple TV box.

    Yeah, Im already stoked on Amazon Prime. Cancelled Netflix (which I love for ease of use). Prime has a decent selection of shows, and 90% of stuff from Amazon ships for free in two days. Its cheaper than Netflix too. $79/ year vs $100+ on Netflix. I <3 Amazon.

    I have Amazon Prime too, which I see as a luxury, but I suppose I get my money's worth out of it. I cut my Netflix subscription back to one disc at a time, as I just don't watch that many movies. If I decide I'm in the mood for something new or whatever that I don't want to wait a few days for, I just rent it from Apple using the Apple TV.

    I'm blown away by the prices of Black Friday deals at Costco for mid range large screen TVs... heck you can't buy a custom knife with that money!

    Then I had to take a flight back to Singapore... where ridiculous rent ruins the retail experience completely. Sigh.

    Amazon Prime is cool cause they have bunches of free streaming movies and shows with a membership. Unfortunately the internet speed in our area is not fast enough for smooth streaming. And forget about any other streaming service here, YouTube is completely out Here

    Yeah, but you guys have wild boars, killer moonshine, striped bass in the creeks, and tortoises running around the woods. Its a good trade off if you ask me

    Awesome dude, congrats on the new purchase! I'm not the biggest fan of apple tv, mainly because of the forced integration with iTunes, which I don't use. But I can say the PS3 is a pretty good media player if you know a few tricks.

    If you have videos/movies/tv shows on an external usb drive or thumb you can play it on the PS3. Plug the drive into the front usb port, nav to "Video", hover over your device, press the triangle button and select display all. This will allow you to play almost every video file on the PS3. For some reason simply pressing "x" on the drive won't display any files. The same trick works for music.

    You can also stream media over your home network to the PS3 with a free program like this. It's an easy to use media server that can play/decode/stream every type of media, including HD, straight from your mac/pc to the PS3. It's pretty slick.

    It's really a shame the built in browser for the PS3 is so bad. Hard to nav anywhere or type anything. And it's been that way for years. It's like they don't want you to browse the internet on it, but know they have to include it.

    Sorry if you know about all this stuff already. Though it might help if you didn't Have fun with the new toys!
