The Police seem to have a whole bunch of new SACD hybrid remasters out, all digipacks I was soo tempted to pick up at least Zenyatta Mondatta (I got a real serious case of digipack-fetish ), but decided I was way over budget already but yeah, they're cool. great musicians too (Copeland drummed for Peter Gabriel amongst others), from back in the day when bands could actually play... I find I'm totally burnt out on their hits though, can't stand them anymore. with...
well, I can see memorychips holding music somewhere in the future, like in solid-state MP3 players right now. memory has to become a lot cheaper to allow 80 minutes of WAV tho... I guess a lot depends on how music and the internet get integrated. do the masses move to downloading the music as just the media (just the tracks they want, and no booklets or fancy digipacks), and how big will the market for non-virtual artwork and quality really be. you mustn't forget the...

Eh, the worst Nikon is still pretty good, you shouldn't take Ken Rockwell out of his own context. He tends to make good points, but every opinion he puts on his site is tongue-in-cheek. That said, from what I've seen, the D40 still has the better sensor unless you care about megapixels. And the sensor really is all that matters. That does not alluva sudden make the Canon a better option. It could be, if you like it better, but not because Ken Rockwell said something about...
Build quality of the 18-55 is so-so, image quality is very nice. You could also look for the 18-70 (cheap on ebay, great lens), the 35 1.8, and forget about the tele. Both cameras take great pictures, both take great lenses, but you don't want to switch brands later on. So don't worry about specs, the quality of the kitlens, ignore deals. Just find out which of the two feels right and go for it.

Rubber Soul [UK] Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Revolver [UK] Please Please Me Abbey Road With The Beatles Help! [UK] The White Album A Hard Day's Night [UK] Beatles For Sale Let It Be Magical Mystery Tour Eh, can't be done, but it's something like this today. Might put the early stuff higher other days. Rubber Sould and Sgt. Pepper are in lead consistently however
I guess most current fans, and recent converts, dig In Absentia most. They really made a stylistic switch there. I'm a pre- In Absentia fan and for me it's very hard to pick between Lightbulb Sun, Signify or even Recordings. Stupid Dream has always been a bit too weird, and while I love the early experimental krautrock experimentation those albums weren't as strong as say Lightbulb Sun.
hurrah for small nikons with the 35 afs
Go widescreen and go as large as you can afford. You'll wonder how you ever got by without all that screen real-estate. The height of a screen rarely matters, but being able to put things next to eachother is a real win. Some of the programmers I work with have tried widescreen in portrait mode, as it in theory lets you view lots of code at once, but none of them stuck with it: it doesn't matter as much as say, have a browser window within easy reach, or readable width...
