    Re: Onkyo Mid-Priced THX Receivers Due Out in May

    Check the Onkyo web site - they have a page where you can put your Serial Number in & check to see if your unit qualifies for their Extended Warranty program.

    Android 4.3 Update applied to my AT&T Note 2.

    Minimal play time thus far, but some quick observations:

    New Screen Display option "Adapt Display" - selected by Default.

    Re: Android Phone Owners

    Probably won't update the Note 2 until details about the Note 4 (!) are announced.

    Galaxy Note 2 - waiting "Patiently" (Ha!) for AT&T to get around to 4.3 upgrade.

    Re: Which DSLR

    FWIW, suggest heading over to dpreview and read their review of the 60D, as well as their Intro for the 700D (Rebel T5i).

    The 60D is not a new design - but the T5i apparently offers little...

    Re: Zombieland TV series?!? From AMAZON!!?!!

    I must be one of a mere handful of people who actually found the FIRST Ghost Rider movie to be rather fun.

    From Onkyo's press release - for 3009 and 5009:



    As Onkyo specs "Ultra 2 Plus" for the 3010, would guess that it would be difficult to discern a real-world difference between the two.
