Sigh. Here we go again. My OCD is preventing me from buying it because I'm somehow convinced it'll be a mistake so close to CES.

Java developers, when I saw what has been placed into Java 8 I was immediately reminded of how I've spent so much of my life trying to protect engineers from themselves. Lambda expressions are a horrible idea. Gentlemen: the goal isn't to make code readable for a competent mid-level engineer. The goal is to make code readable for a competent mid-level engineer exhausted and hopped up on caffeine at 3 am. What a disaster Java 8 is!

No, that's a different tv (and price) entirely. The offer I was talking about was brand new, from Amazon, $15 shipping, and $1299.

The price didn't last longer than a couple of hours.

By the way, if you're using the camelizer app (or camelcamelcamel.com), they have a problem with tracking this set properly. You won't see the price drop in their history. They have two problems currently: 1. the product itself can't be searched for properly for reasons that no one knows. Amazon also has had oddball effects with this entry....they even put a placard on it once saying that they had a problem listing it for some reason and were "working on it". 2. Amazon has pulled the "fulfilled by Amazon" flag from their own API, which means that there is no way for camelcamelcamel to not see the price as a marketplace (3rd party) sale even if fulfilled by Amazon. This is 10x confusing, because the amazon price is often a "fulfilled" price from a marketplace seller.

Amazon really F'd up this product listing, and it's been going on for several months!
