Doing more research

I've been doing more and more research on Digital SLRs. Seems like the Canon EOS 40D is a better camera than the Rebel XSI. The only drawback is that its $400 more expensive, and actually has less megapixel (10 compared to 12) that the XSI.

Then, the 40D is being upgraded to a 15 Megapixel 50D which should be coming out next month.

The only drawback? It's at least double the cost of the XSI.

I guess the bottom line is that its very easy to get caught up and spend more and more money.

Rebel XSI

I'm so tired of taking blurry pictures with my point and shoot digital camera.

I think I will soon splurge and get my first Digital SLR camera. I've been looking around and it looks like the Rebel XSi is a pretty good choice as a beginner camera. It goes for around $725 (on the internet), and comes with a lense.

If I get it, I'll be sure to post some pictures!

Mac Book Air

I've always been a PC fan (my work always provided me with one for home, and I was always too poor to buy an Apple), but I have been getting more and more bothered by Spyware, Viruses, etc. So when my friends told me they never had these problems on their Apple computers, I was pretty interested in getting one.

It seems that Apple is on the cutting edge on product design- Ipods, Iphone, Mac's, etc...and with the Mac Book Air, they seem to have created another beautiful product. The laptop is less than 1" thick, and only weighs 3 lbs! Unfortunately, I read that it is pretty fragile, and I have three wild toddlers at home. Alas, I guess I will have to wait a few more years until they grow older and stop breaking my things.

I'll take my Blackberry- thank you very much!

There's been much hoopla over the Iphone, and the new 3G Iphone. While I gotta admit its very cool looking, I have the hardest time texting or typing my emails on the touch screen. Maybe it's just because I have the fattest fingers around.

I think I'll stick with my nice Blackberry Curve. I love the individual buttons/keys, and it even takes photos and videos. I just wish I could take less blurry photos with it!

Got a pretty cheap movie projector

When all of your friends are raving about their new 60" flatscreen TV's, dazzle them with your 120" movie projector.

Although the quality is not as high (unless you are willing to pay for it), it works especially great for cartoons- which is great for my kids.

The projector I got was the Optoma Movietime DV11 for around $800.
