I’m looking to buy an Xbox 360 and a TV v.iknownothing

I’d like to spend ~$800 on the lot. My friends were telling me that I need a 360 with a hard drive.

The 20GB 360 is $260 from what I see, so that leaves me with $540 for the TV, and I don’t really care to have the best of the best, it’ll be in a dorm room so it may get a little damage and I think I’d prefer size over great amazing quality. I’m not set on anything though, so if I need a different Xbox or there is a TV I should stay away from I’ll take all input.

Thanks for any help I can get.

Pantech Duo

Hey guys I recently got a pantech duo a couple months ago. I like the phone although there are better phones out there for the money now. I was wondering if anyone knows of any tips or tricks for the phone?

I’ve already installed the DuoSTT program that allows the phone to answer or hang up the phone by sliding the phone open or closed.

Lookin to buy a camera

Wife is pregnant, and we need a new camera to keep up with pictures. She is set on the look of something like the EOS Rebel XS from Canon, but I need to know if this is something more than we will need. I usually stick to name brands with electronics. Any suggestions?

I know nothing about cameras, and price is not an issue. We just need something to produce some good quality pictures to pass around.
You have to decide what you need it for. If you nothing about cameras, perhaps diving into the deep end with a DSLR may not be the right place to be although the EOS Rebel XS does have a good user rating. Alternatively you can look at the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50or other cameras in that range. There are other types of cameras in that category as well. They rival highly with the picture quality of most SLR and have the added advantage of a movie mode which you wont get with single lens reflex. The Mega Zoom ranges from Sony and Panasonic are a great place to start with that. One this you will lose out on however is the upgrading options like extra lenses and filters which the SLR will undoubtedly provide room for. Another thing that comes to mind is that you probably don’t need the 10.1 mega pixels that the Cannon comes with. If its just for happy snaps, a simple point and shoot would be adequate. Try the Sony cybershot range or the Nikon has some high resolution options, up to 8 megapixel, just in case. The main thing that you’ll get out of the 10MP from the cannon is the ability to print your photos to ridiculously huge sizes without loss of image quality. If you want top of the range, go for the Cannon, but if you don’t want something surplus to requirement look at something like a point and shoot. Hope that helps.

Help, my iPod touch fell in water! :-(

I dropped my iPod touch into some water earlier today. Got it out immediately. Everything was working fine. But now the lock button isn’t functioning properly. It never locks (except for auto lock when kept idle) and if I push the button a bunch of times occasionally it will ask me to slide the slider to power off. I bought this off eBay about a month ago. It’s 2nd gen, which came out a few months ago. Is there a warranty? This device just came out, it’s under a year old. Any help appreciated. Thank you.
