    "LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 5, 2006--Samsung Electronics
    formally kicks off the era of Blu-ray today, as it demonstrates its
    BD-P1000 Blu-ray disc (BD) player here at CES. The new device will let
    consumers take full advantage of high-definition displays, playing
    content at native 720p or 1080i video resolutions. The player will
    ship in early Spring and shortly thereafter will become the first BD
    player from any manufacturer to be sold in the U.S. It is expected to
    retail for approximately $1,000."

    "Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game
    because they almost always turn out to be -- or to be indistinguishable from
    -- self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."
