1/15    Dear motd prediction guy, your prediction is WAAAAAAAAAAY off.
        I have personally been monitoring the prices, and it appears that
        in reality PS3 supply has matched up with demand quite well. BestBuy
        and eBay supplies are plenty, as bids from 12/25-now have been
        in the $600-$700 range.
           Wii on the other hand took everyone by surprise. Bids have cooled
        from $480 range before Christmas to about $350 lately on eBay.
           Moral of the story: It's not about pixel and superior graphics. It
        is all about fun and playability. PS3 has 10X better graphics, but
        who cares? Wii is 100X more fun.
        \_ Personally, I was really looking forward to the Wii, but I didn't
           expect it to be impossible to get.  It's popularity has certainly
           caught me by surprise.  Of course, it it boat-loads of fun.  I'm
           curious how the PS3 will do when some decent games appear.  So far
           the graphics are no better than the 360, and the games suck.
           \_ Slightly better graphics + same playability <<<
              Same graphics + superior playability.
              Sorry, but Sony really fucked up this time.
              \_ Wait, who do you say has the slightly better graphics?
                 Wii graphics are clearly worse. Also, I thought Wii Sports
                 was fun for a while but lately I just keep crossing it
                 on the serve return and the other guy has no chance to get
                 to the ball (because you have no control of the character).
                 And at this point the only other games I'm interested in
                 are Zelda (also for GC) and... yeah.
        \_ I have a Wii and it is 480p. How about XBox and PS3? Do both of
           them support 720p and 1080p?

1/15    hmm... US GI stationed in Korea raped a 67 yr old woman...
        I guess it's less disturbing than the rape of 14 years old Japanese
        school girl a couple years ago.
        \_ 67 yr old?  Yucks.

1/17    Why people move to and stay in California:
        \_ It's amazing how stupid some people are. Once your car starts to
           move like that, why are you still trying to accelerate?
           \_ I think he's in a hurry to watch TV. Must Watch TV.
