A guy I sometimes do some web application work for is gifting me a TV. As crazy as that sounds. They are getting me a 26 inch R7 Series Samsung, it’s a really sexy looking TV with this flawless shiny bevel. There’s an R8 series that has just been released but it isn’t easily available yet and I can’t be bothered to wait.
I’ve also ordered an xbox 360, came across a good deal at HMV.co.uk, for just 290 quid, you get that boxed version with HD plus Pro Evolution Soccer, Gears of War and Crackdown. Which are all games I want. To top it off I used a coupon code that gets you 5 quid off. Bargin! Found it at Hot Deals Oh yeah, bit annoying, the HMV site doesn’t accept coupon codes if you’re using safari, just doesn’t react. Silly
What a lot of wires.
In anticipation I’ve gathered all the cable’s I will need, and what an insane mess of connections it is too. I’ve got a Mini-DVI to DVI adapter (required because apple put a silly mini dvi port on the iMac), a DVI to HDMI lead, a Wii Component cable, an XBox 360 VGA cable (so that I don’t need a component switcher) and an extra long interconnect to get the sound to my amp.
Is it me, or is the futher along the old timeframe we get the more wires we are dealing with. It’s hardly progress!
