@lesta_smsc: Don't bother with that Serial to USB adapter, it doesn't work!! Got the gender changer yesterday and have connected everything to my laptop but it doesn't supply power to the IWB so it won't work!!

You do know that ATV's have a NetFlix app right?

Netflix is great. Use it on Samsung TV. You tried LoveFilm?

Not sure what LoveFilm is, Netflix is the first movie streaming service I've tried.
I really like it so far, been watching a bunch of Star Trek TOS this last week.

AVPlayerHD, a cheap app for the iPad, which I find extremely useful - it's a movie player that supports several video formats, not only the few the iPad officially supports... so I can easily copy movie files from my PC to my iPad and watch them without having to convert them... just copy and watch, very fast and easy.

I also bought a used iPad keyboard from a friend of mine, he never used it so I got it cheaply.
I don't think I'l be using it *that* much myself either, but it's very handy for posting in forums and writing mails, chatting and things like that.

Photon web browser for the iPad, because it allows me to watch Flash videos.
Not perfect, it can be a little slow in full screen, but better than not having any Flash support at all.

Well, not exactly today, but I bought Campaign for the Miggy some days ago for 1 Euro (+1.4€ postage).
Tbh, I'm more interested in the manual than the game (because I want to know how to play the game, after struggling for 20 years).
