  1. I checked out the slideshow of the new product design and they are surely snazzy. One of my favorites is the 2SECONDS QUECHUA — all one has to do is throw it in the air and it opens on its own before reaching the ground. Wow! When we used to do cross-country bicycling, what I hated the most was setting up the tent — always laborious and tough to secure. This one is amazing!

  2. QueChua is indeed a great product, I remember back in my scouting days it would take the whole troop to setup our tent and a little gust of wind to knock it down and for the whole troop to put it back up again.

    *sighs* I sure miss those camping days…

  3. Despite being an AMD fan, the Core Duo 2, admittedly, will probably slap the fastest Athlon 64 FX silly, and use up less power as well. If there's a CPU that will make me jump back to Intel, this may well be it…

    Question is…would I be able to afford it?

    Probably not. 🙂
