    Will you buy an Apple Watch?

    I am on the fence right now. I am wondering if I should or should not. I am tempted, plus the fact that I feel I missed out some not getting the iPhone and waiting until the iPhone 3G to get one. So, who is going to order one? Right now I am leaning about 80% towards risking it...

    Time Warner HD only

    Interesting I received a new channel lineup from TWC. They state "All Channels in HD where available". They no longer have separate SD vs HD channels. I am sure they are going to have some channels in SD only since they are currently not in HD now, but it looks like they intend to go HD only...
