I sold motorized sit/stand desks in early 2000's and we could not give them away. They have been popular in Denmark (and I sold Danish furniture) for years. Now, they are all the freaking rage and everyone needs to have one. I put them in the same category as gluten free diets and fat free yogurts - fads. » 10/30/14 3:31pm Yesterday 3:31pm

When I was selling mattresses, we had a huge markup on them - $200 cost would sell for about $800 if I recall correctly. I still have one I bought years ago...I also scored 3 tempurpedic ones for about $150 each (way below cost, promo for salespeople), sold them on ebay, made about $2000 total after expenses... » 10/29/14 11:24am Wednesday 11:24am

I am dying to know - what about Verizon? Is the phone going to be available on Google Play as a Verizon version? I presume there is no way to have a same phone for Verizon, t-mobile and ATT because of different radios? Big question is updates - will the Verizon phone be a real Nexus phone that gets updates with the… » 10/29/14 12:09pm Wednesday 12:09pm

Is it? Are there any newer Subaru models, say past 2008 that have head gasket issues? In my family, we had a 2001 Legacy, 2003 Forester, 2008 Outback, 2010 Outback x2, and we had two issues total, both on the 2001 Legacy - driver side window would not go up, and occasionally it would not go into gear right away. » 10/28/14 11:17am Tuesday 11:17am

My collection is now even larger, with more bodies and lenses, and I might have spent 200-300 bucks on all of it, if even that. I think I paid $35 for a Nikon once, all others were $5 -25. I paid $35 for a minolta with 3 lenses, bag. tripod, filters etc. I don't shoot them ever...my time is taken by my 50D/6D/Eos-M » 10/23/14 3:49pm 10/23/14 3:49pm

I have the Eos M - you don't want EOS M. Well, I guess the fact I bought it new with a lens for $300 or $350 (can't remember) does mean something. I just bought the small canon flash for it and for my new 6D, and I will probably take it to vacation with me when I don't want to drag a full frame body with L lenses… » 10/22/14 12:56pm 10/22/14 12:56pm

Here is a solution for Tesla. Open up a nationwide shop, like AutoNation, and sell "Used" Tesla automobiles. Sell real used models, and sell CPO cars, or whatever they wanna call them, with 20 miles of use per model. Circumvent the "new" part of the law. Any lawyers here that can explain to me why this wouldn't work? » 10/21/14 4:50pm 10/21/14 4:50pm

Hopefully, it will be somewhere in the middle. I wear a Fitbit, use a smartphone and don't see myself getting a smartwatch anytime soon. I'd wear a Fitbit with more features, and a 3-5 day battery life. Price is an issue - if Android Wear devices can cost $250, not sure why this would cost as much. » 10/20/14 10:37am 10/20/14 10:37am

Nexus 5 cost 350-400 bucks when SGS4, SGS5, HTC M8, iPhone 5s and all other flagship phones sold for 550-600 bucks. Now, off contract international version Note 4 costs 850 bucks on amazon, iPhone 6+ 16GB costs $750, Note 4 for Verizon is $700 etc.. it is a larger phone, with similar guts, for less money. Not quite as… » 10/15/14 5:37pm 10/15/14 5:37pm

They are no lightweight, as you said, so why would you refer to one as "cart this small and light" ? Of course they are smaller and lighter than most cars on the road, as it is a sporty coupe, but I'd reserve "small and light" for an Elise or original Miata » 10/13/14 3:36pm 10/13/14 3:36pm
