Seen at Best Buy today

20 Nintendo Wii’s in the wild. I had the self control not to buy one, but asked the guy why there wasn’t a line yet. “They only just arrived and nobody knows they’re here yet.” Thirty minutes later while revisiting the store I asked him how many had been bought. About half. I saw online that you just cannot find a Wii for Xmas this year. We briefly thought of buying the whole stock and flipping them on eBay for $300 each for a tidy $1,000 profit. BB probably wouldn’t have let us buy them all. Ah well.

This looks promising. 20x the performance of regular batteries. Yes, please.
