Kramer is a jive turkey!

Oh man Michael Richards…haven’t heard of him in a while. Wonder if he’s appearing on Showtime at the Apollo.

I love mine, I purchased at Microcenter a few weeks ago. Paid a lot more!! This is a must have for anyone who has a laptop, its so small and portable I take it with me on the road all the time.
I’m getting another one as a stocking stuffer.

Giddy up! Say it ain’t so Kramer.

For only $129.99 this is an inexpensive way to get over the HD channels on your laptop.”

Here is a USA Today article about it!

One more option. Cheaper too.

F-in A hahah Kramer I gained more respect for you! EYE FOR AN EYE, He had it comin! Night WOOT!

Had one, it’s extremely CPU intensive.

Tried it on 3 computers… none of them were able to cope with it. a 3.0 GHZ p4 (512 mb of ram), a 3400+ AMD Athlon 64 (1260 MB of Ram) laptop.

Got rid of it…

What? No tennis ball for the antenna?
