Am I the only one who was superbly disappointed by Best Buy's Black Friday ad? It's heartbreaking, really, especially with all the deals you can find on the web every day that don't require frostbite and painful skin grafts.

If wiring up my home theatre system was a less of a pain in the ass kind of deal, I'm sure I'd be all up in the Onkyo biznit; last time I dabbled in this shite, it took hours to figure it all out, then in a few days I realized the interface sucked such major donkey nuts that it just wasn't worth the 600$ I had spent, so I returned it for full refund and spent the cash on more greener pastures. Not.One.Regret.
Hopefully in the future they'll make user friendly shite - why doesn't Apple get involved in this game?
