    He also seems to cave a little when pressed, but without admitting it. That's another BS alarm indicator for me.

    Isn't paying so much every month for cell phone minutes the same type of "rope"? Dollars for minutes.

    Anyway back on topic here...
    Yup, those are all ropes

    But again, that's my opinion.

    Once a a while Target will have them on sale. I got one last year in November. I don't mind the point system as long as you know what the conversion rate is.

    But isn't that a little weird? To me it means that if I buy points at full price (like because I'm out of points) then I'm always going to feel like I'm getting screwed.

    I know there are people who will like this kind of system. But I think it's not mainstream. I don't know if it's one of the reasons the service hasn't caught on, but it's why I never used it.

    The fact that people are talking about Vudu and putting it in the same class as AppleTV and XBox360 I think is fantastic. All the systems excel in different ways and that is exciting because that usually means they are all striving to catch up with each other. Owners of any system will win.

    I'm an Apple fanboy personally, but AppleTV has failed to convince me. And the XBox 360's "point" system weirds me out a bit - just charge me $3.99. I'd love to see more TV shows available from Vudu.

    The IR receiver option is great news - I'm ready to get my Harmony remote all set up!
