AV Rant #181: Dog Pillow

We are REALLY sorry and video didn’t work this week as you would have seen Tom cry. Yes, cry. Damn you ooVoo and your endless crashes!!!!! On tap this week, Onkyo partners with Walmart, LifeLock dude needs to change his keys, Steven gets a better answer, and moths might just make your next display much better. Hate HDMI? Hello MHL (which, Tom discovered after the podcast, is not the same thing as Mobile HD). Netflix streams HD to PCs. Pandora – a study. Thanks for listening and don’t forget to vote for us at Podcast Alley. To see our (mostly) complete collection of show videos, click here. To get our iPhone app, visit the iTunes store.

    I’d be interested in buying a Tshirt. You should set a poll up to test interest.

    You should absolutely have an online fire sale before moving to australia… put me down for a calibration mic if you have any extras. 😉

    I’d be interested in your acoustic treatment, especially bass traps!

    Re: moth-inspired anti-reflective screen surface – my personal theory is that manufacturers are using the super-glossy screens to appeal more to women; almost all of the current displays look like mirrors now, and we all know how much women love their mirrors!

    Merchants actually cannot ask for you ID when you pay with a card, with Mastercard or Visa at least. If you sign your card, and they don’t think the signature is legit, they can call the credit card company. But, if you don’t sing your card they can’t accept it. These rules are followed by a lot of people, but they are the rules set by the credit card companies.

    It is safer to sign your card, rather than write down “See ID”, because they can get additional info off of your divers license.

    I’m kind of behind on my podcasts, but I work for a bank and have worked with cards in the past. if the cardholder reports the lost card or the fraudulent charges within a specified period of time after finding out about the problem, the issuing bank eats the fraud. The laws are in the consumer’s favor. The applicable code is called “Reg E”.

    The problem is tracking all this stuff down, reporting it, getting the money back that’s already gone, etc. It can be a nightmare. But in the end, you’re most likely going to end up reasonably OK.
