    Why can't it happen, Paulie? Still subscribe to that asinine notion HDTV is for the niche and rich or whatever BS you used to pedal?

    Well...

    Considering that my local Home Depot has been selling at least one lowercost HDTV over the past couple months... and DirecTV has had a "booth" there for the last month.

    It is not "too" far out there.

    Going back over the past few years Paul and Reddice have been very Anti-HD and post utter nonsense here all of which basically translates into 'I can't afford it so it sucks'

    Mine too. And my Home Depot is across the parking lot from a Costco. My Home Depot also sell washers, dryers, etc. With warranties. Costco sells the same appliances (not TVs) without warranties. They break down, you just return them and get a new one. I asked one of the managers at Home Depot how the appliances were selling and he told me "like hotcakes". And they are more expensive than Costco. Makes you wonder how people can be so stupid.

    Actually, having grown up dirt poor, I can understand that attitude. It is difficult to watch others have what seems like "everything" while you have very little. But once you grow up, that attitude becomes something you can do something about.

    That said, some people just complain for the sake of complaining.

    Sounds like the same place I go to shop on those rare occasions I shop. Why do they sell at Home Depot? Many do not have Costco memberships. I got mine in Oct. of 1987 when they were opening up the Edison Location having been in one in California previously. It was a little far however the savings made it worth it.

    Plus I suspect that many do not know what a Costco is.

    I was in the Office Depot, near my home, which is all tore up due to remodeling. Towards the back of the store there must have been 40-50 new sets, and it appeared they were preparing a display area in the front of the store.

    My brother used to love Home Depot. Now he hates it. He's a big Lowes fan. He said Home Depot's service has gone down the crapper, their store workers are clueless, and they never have what he's looking for. According to him, Lowes has a much better selection, better service, and more knowledgeable employees.

    I've been going to Lowes more often myself and think my brother may be right. It's probably no surprise that this all happened when Home Depot's last CEO, Nardelli, abruptly resigned after running the company into the ground. His reward: a severance package of $210 million! :eek:

    Don't give him the secret handshake yet though until he's a senior member.

    Makes sense. Jimmy Johnson is a much better driver than Tony Stewart ... two years in a row! :D
