Last week, I asked you to let us know how many of you owned a high definition television set. Your answers are now in. Let's take a look!

My son has one of those cool remote control R2D2 robots, the one with a little cup holder that is absolutely perfect for holding an ice cold can of beer.... and it sits under a thick layer of dust in the corner of his room, housing his one very cool hat.
