Hello Moto

Ok, so I caved to metrosexuality. I went and bought myself a RAZR V3c (Verizon) after seeing just how sexy Amo's was. I haven't made any calls on it, so I have no idea if it's a good phone, but did I mention it was sexy? (For the record, I read a lot of reviews and most people agree its a good phone.)

DirecTV installer came today to swap out my dish and bring me a new MPEG4-capable receiver to get the new DC HD locals. Doing some quick tests revealed that the picture quality of WTTG (Fox) is on par with the FOXE (New York) channel. I could never see a difference between that and OTA, so that's pretty good. WUSA (CBS) is just as gorgeous as ever and CSI looked great: wonderful black levels and crystal clear. I'm impressed, and it only cost me a pittance to never have to worry about multi-path killing my reception or that ugly, un-metrosexual antenna ever again.

Tonight I'm flipping between college basketball, hockey, and a bowl game. Gotta love this time of year. There's a bowl game on almost every day from now until the week after New Years.
