    If you're talking about the Play Book I have no idea, but I can't stand my BB. Can't wait till they let you get Android devices for work (right now you can only get e-mail with MobileIron + TouchDown, and intranet when you're on the office WiFi, but the VPN solution they have is only available on PCs and Macs). Heck I'd even buy my own as long as they pay for the monthly plan.

    Hey, are we catching up to SD yet? Or is he not the diaper-changing type? Don't think having a kid has slowed him down much.

    To any fellow XBox One owners out there, there is a Plex app coming to the XBone. It's not officially made by Plex, but is being made by a member of the Plex community.

    Sometimes I feel like chucking a spear through my laptop -- that would make it a computer-on-a-stick, too.

    So has anyone ever bought anything off this site? I'm considering ordering the following:

    They are liers and thiefs. They will steel from you. This website should be taken out of the internet.

    http://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.aliexpress.com

    The camera I ordered would not power on. I contacted the buyer and requested either an exchange or refund. The buyer sent back pictures of a working camera to try to demonstrate that my camera was not defective.

    http://www.resellerratings.com/store/AliExpress

    Bought a 64 GB "Toshiba" branded high speed USB flash memory from Shenzhen trend electronic co., LTD .
    It is CRAP! It is actually much much lower capacity which has been hacked, so it appears as 64GB while it is not able to take more than 8GB.

    Most of the bad reviews are from people buying clothes/wigs/hair (you wouldn't think that buying hair/wigs online would be something people do) but overall they are hovering between 1-2 stars out of 10.

    Yeah, I'd likely stick with doing business in this hemisphere for something like that, SSF.

    AliExpress is kind of like a Chinese Amazon, where it's a bunch of different sellers using their website. In this case, your item would be coming from Guangdong.

    I'm not saying, by the way, that the links I posted are for products in the Western hemisphere. Fact is I did not see the location listed like they do on eBay. But it's fulfilled by Amazon and that does give it a measure of security.

    Thanks guys!

    I might go with ebay. But Amazon will definitely be an option.
