  1. I used the Disney app about a 1-1/2 years ago and even then the app was extremely useful. I used it for finding out about ride wait times (which were surprisingly accurate), character meeting times, plus general location information. Its worth the price of the app, especially considering the amount you are shelling out for park tickets.
    Oh, and what’s the deal with IKEA combo TV stands (read that line with a Seinfeld voice), seems like design regression. I thought the flat screen revolution sort of kicked the old console TV idea to the curb. Not sure why I am complaining though, since there is no reality where I could afford one of those things…

  2.  @John_IVpod I love that Seinfeld reference. You wrote it exactly like Jerry would say it. 🙂
    I learned a lesson to never buy furniture that locks me into technology of a certain size. I bought an entertainment center and a dresser for two different rooms in my house back in 99. There weren’t any 16×9 tvs back then, of course. But when those came around, I was limited with what I could do to get one that would fit into those 4×3 sized pieces of furniture. So I agree with you on your point about design regression. Tech changes too fast these days.
