Re: Black Friday Upon Us

Very true. OS 2.1 is great. All I have been hearing over and over today is how two guys in their mid-50s absolutely love these things and just how awesome it's going to be for them to have those things when they go out to job sites and to do estimates.

I'm considering getting some capacitive styluses for them, that way they can even draw stuff and do notes. My hope is that one day I won't have a pile of paper on my desk every day

Good luck on that. I file (electronically) and scan items, but I still keep paper files for those who either don't have access, or still prefer those pieces of paper.

Electronic files can be printed on an as-needed basis. Every little bit helps I guess.

This stylus looks appealing.

For the toolhounds, crapytire has a nice 24" breaker bar on sale for around 10 bucks (reg ~$41). Will take upwards of 400ft-lbs which should be enough to remove wheel nuts. PN is 58-9982-2, today is the last day of the sale.

who the eff is tightening their wheel nuts to 400 ft/lbs...i think most cars are only spec'd at 80, maybe 120?...400 sounds like an 18 wheeler or a bus.

Hmm the $34.99 price for the extreme sandisk 45mBs 32Mb card SDHC seems particularly good (at Futureshop online)

On? no, but you will need that much, even more to get them off if the service tech drove them on with an impact wrench.

not me, i don't take my car to Canadian Tire ...the guys at Costco who switch my tires use an impact wrench to get the wheels off, and use it to spin the nuts mostly back on...then they finish it off with the torque wrench.

You're lucky. Mrs. Weather had taken the minivan to the dealership back in the summer to have the brakes looked at (one of the calipers wasn't releasing properly) and when I went to put on the winter tires I had to use a 2' steel pipe extension for my breaker bar to get the goddamn nuts off.

The tech impact wrenched them on. Spec is 95 ft-lbs, asshole.

Haven't been looking, but have an email saying Best Buy's sale starts at 10pm. Anyone interested the email says you can save another $20 off a 200+ order by using RZCYBER

Picked up a tp-link N750 router for $65 and free shipping at Amazon for the otakuthon office. Normally goes for $90. Even the full price would be a great deal if it's reliable (we'll probably use a custom firmware).
