Is it even possible to buy a new car without electric windows these days?
My brand new GMC Sierra pickup has manual windows, manual door locks and no cruise control. If you look around, you can find things without easily enough.
Yeah, but honestly, the alarm gate doesn't stop those people either. They zip right out. I wonder what the value is of one of those things that they're nabbed so often...
The scanners seem to be just set up to show something at random that's on sale. It'd be nice if it was related to where I was, but it'd be even nicer if it'd just shut up and leave me alone hehe.
Well, you should want to! They're interesting... all sciency and stuff.
There is a chain of stores in the US, Stop & Shop, that is doing what you describe for self-checkout now. It's much much more convenient than the regular self checkouts here. I wish more stores would take that up, though from what I'm told, there's a lot of people stealing the hand scanners...

Oddly, in my case, that's not an option. While Comcast has a drop to my home, the local telco, Fairpoint, does not, and when called, has no desire to dig up my yard to run a line (not that my landlord would let me tell them to do that anyway).
As such, I can get Comcast. No southern exposure for satellite either.
