Movie rentals start at $1.

Regarding prices in general, though, iTunes rentals are in line with other programs. Amazon, e.g., charges similar prices.

Apparently, TSA lets you take up to four cartridges if you also have a CO2 life vest. Come to think of it, using a life vest as a decoy for making coffee, that's hilarious. A coffee snob in an...

Zassenhaus has been mentioned before in this thread. That's the one to get. Their other versions are excellent as well if one doesn't want to spring for the high-end, electrical versions.

Occasionally, an iPod might claim that charging is not supported but will charge anyway. Best not to do anything drastic too soon and just give it a moment.

I've seen you say these things several times now, i.e., that you get very fast response times from Dell, etc. Out of curiosity, how much does that cost?

Yes, I know, but as far as I am aware, iPhones can't be unlocked, unless purchased unlocked to begin with, i.e., they ship unlocked from the manufacturer. I'd like to know if that is correct.
