Your being redundant...

No, I'm not, and that's you're or you are, and not "your"

AFAIC a PS3 is a game console, not a general purpose computer; even more so since Sony has removed the ability to boot to Linux.

With a GP computer already in place buying an overpriced game console just for Hulu Plus would be doubly redundant. Royal you using an overpriced game console.

Comment watch it on the big screen via your PS3? (Score 1) 348

Well, no, but I can watch normal Hulu on my big screen TV via the computer that's connected to it.

I saw that my Sony TV already had a "Hulu Plus -- coming soon" item its set of selections.

But I don't think I'm in a big rush to to sign up for Hulu Plus. As it is I barely watch Netflix; my wife watches it more than I do.

Who goes to a cinema anymore?

My wife and I do.

The last time we went was three weeks ago -- tickets were $8 each. The theater we went to serves beer, and they had a special on one of them -- I guess they were trying to finish off the keg -- $2 for a beer.

Went again two weeks ago, no special on the beer, so that was $5 this time, but tickets were still $8.

Yeah, we could wait for the DVD, but by the time it's out on DVD I've probably already forgotten about it. Getting out of the house can be a good thing -- it's definitely an impulse thing.

Isn't it obvious?

OP is a Republican and Feinstein is a Democrat. A California Democrat as well. And a woman.

I expect he wants bipartisan cooperation too, but he's disappointed that the Dems are cooperating about as much as the Repubs did during the Bush years.

Boo hoo.

Go ahead, mod me a troll. See if I care.

Or has ceased being interesting so now they're resorting to pulling ever greater stunts to try to lure people back in.

I look forward to some day in the future when my great grand children ask me where I was when man first landed on the moon and when Fonzie jumped the shark. And I'll say, "I was glued to the TV screen." And then they'll ask me what a TV screen is.
