Kindles are really cheap now, love the new lighted model - but the price for electronic books is stuck around $15.
High Def TVs are amazing and inexpensive - but you need something to watch on it.
I am new to streaming. At first I was bitterly disappointed at Netflix, I naively thought that most movies had moved online. But I've made my peace, you get what you pay for.
I don't think most people can afford to start collecting all the Blu-Rays they lust for. I collected DVDs for a few years, I rarely watch them, not going to repeat that behavior with Blu-Ray.
Netflix blu-ray rentals are not too bad of a deal.
The solution to these dilemmas is to get rich. Marry well!
