    Regarding the digital camera thing, if anyone is looking for a top-notch site, try Steve’s Digicams ( He does a great job reviews almost everything out there.

    It’s how I settled on my Sony DSC-H1 a couple of years ago.

    And this is exactly why I don’t get Consumer Reports — because for me — there was no value added.
    1. I can get all of my tech reviews online from places like CNET.
    2. I don’t need a magazine to tell me which are their tastiest/best food brands — I’ll figure that out myself…
    3. I buy 99% of my travel online — and get fabulous prices — and I know when booking that Jet Blue is more problematic of late than not.

    I say that if you really like it, read it at the library or bookstore — or pick it up next month. Their recommendations shouldn’t change much by then…

    Doesn’t “Light” beer refer to the Alcoholic percentage and not the caloric? That was my understanding?

  4. I like the No-Ad for it’s value, but I can often find half-price sales that don’t make it cheaper. Also the lady of the household likes how the Neutrogena and Dove brands dry without any stickiness. I have to admit that they are much, much better than No-Ad in that area, but it’s one of those things where I’m not willing to pay for that.

    No, it’s calories, pretty much all “beer” is the same strength. There used to be “Three Two” (3.2) states who had lower % beers, but I think Colorado was the last of those.

    “Malt liquor” indicates a higher % of alcohol.

    Hmm – not being a beer drinker, I wouldn’t know for sure but I believe at some point “Light” beer could refer to calories, alcohol content or simply the color of the brew which made it a real mess in trying to figure out what you were drinking.
