(Oh well, the CSR I spoke to was very nice and actually pleasant so okay at least they get that going for them.)

Right now I basically use it as my Internet tablet while watching TV or movies, mostly because I can just keep it on my coffee table and not have to pull my MacBook out of my backpack, but really it's not even very good for that anymore, between the trackpad problems, the assiness of the old-style power connector, and so on. It's not even a very good remote control for the Mac mini since the tiny screen means VNC has to scroll a lot.
The only simple "cool" thing I can think of for it is to invert the lid and turn it into a full-time Electric Sheep picture frame...

The site is pretty badly-organized when it comes to the Apple TV section. Trying to get information about actually contacting Apple for repair or replacement just led me around in circles. The "request repair or replacement" link sent me to a section of the site which had nothing Apple TV-related.

Meanwhile, in the world of Casino Royale, everyone uses nothing but Sony products, all day every day. Not that I mind a world where everyone uses Sony Ericsson phones (which are still the least sucky!) and I'm pretty darn happy with my current Sony receiver and my Playstation 3. Though it's pretty funny how apparently people use Blu-Ray players in security rooms, and there are ads for Bravia on every single website on the planet, including MI-6 internal ones. I'm kind of surprised the portable defibrillator didn't have a Sony logo on it.
Then of course there was the major product placement for the Aston Martin. I'm pretty sure I won't be buying one of those any time soon.

I really need someone (preferably a CMT, though the reiki/reflexology practitioners all claim to be CMTs as well so I'm guessing CMT doesn't really mean much anymore) who will do deep-tendon massage for tendinosis. Surely there's got to be someone good and reputable around here?
(I can find a number of decent-looking therapists down in Mountain View, San Jose, etc. and I suppose it's not that big a deal to go down on a Saturday or whatever, but it'd be much more convenient if I could go during the work week without taking a day off from work.)
