David's Take: Pop Goes The... Popcorn Machine!

David's Take: Defying Physics - The Samsung HW-MS650 Soundbar

David's Take: Defying Physics - The Samsung HW-MS650 Soundbar

I browsed through my local Best Buy and found the Samsung HW-MS650, which is sold at an MSRP of $600. It caught my eye for being very attractive, with no-nonsense, industrial rectangular sculpting.

However, I'm a fanboy of quality, not brands.

Getting Personal: Industry Profile - Roger Delarosbil

He'd only make a passing reference to his challenges, and I'd have to dig. Roger doesn't like to complain. And when I would sense the tip of a horrifying iceberg, he would wave me through like a traffic cop at passing rubberneckers. I soon realized there had been some struggle on Roger's path to success.
