I'm going to be a bit delayed releasing the next videos - the primary hard drive on my system failed catastrophically on Saturday, and it's probably going to be at least a few days before it's up and running again.

I was unable to find ANY Black Monday specials for remotes at the usual suspects such as Best Buy, Circuit City, Dell, Buy.com, Walmart, Radio Shack... so if you manage to spot something, add a comment!
