You'd be surprised at the number of times that people losing out to digitally edited photos in contests have balked and cited Ansel Adams as the "purist" that would never digitally edit his photos if...

I just ran up to the office and - sure enough - I have a few of those still stashed away myself. Mostly, I only saved the ones in really over the top packaging. I have one in a big cardboard shadow...

Yes.

Especially since they offer no upgrade discounts for people with lifetime subscriptions on previous models that want to get a newer model.

The question still stands.

I can ask, "what is there for dinner" and if the answer is "potato chips", I'm still going to want to know what there is for DINNER. There's a difference between...

I'm not sure what the recordings were made on, but it was shot using the MUSE system. The original show was a live PPV event.

The quality of the conductor matters far more than the braid. A solid copper core will do far more for you in providing a good signal than any other part of the cable.
