An Australian viewer wants to know: is the EnergySmart PowerSaver legit??? We haven't had a chance to test it (and neither one of us is a physicist) but we're not seeing a lot of win based on the info on the product's website. Where's a Kill A Watt when we need it???

Nelson's "looking for a HD camcorder in the $1000 range with 1080p, electronic viewfinder, good still picture quality, and easy enough for the technologically inept to use. My current thoughts are the Sony HDR-CX560V or the Canon Vixia HF S21. Any suggestions?" Hint: Roger bought one of these HD camcorders for his own use. Watch the video to find out which one!
Jeremy saw the email about stuttering in iTunes in Windows and writes, "I've had similar stuttering in video playback with iTunes that could be resolved by setting iTunes' CPU affinity to a single CPU. This would indicate the issue was the difference in threading between OS X and Windows." Thanks for the heads up, Jeremy!
