Thanks, Joe. I'm ok with getting a gift card, I'll just use it to pay my monthly bill(s). Also, I think I'll perform the trade in the store, or not at all....

[quote]Whats the difference in going to a store..?[/quote]
I guess it's more of a buy-back program. According to their website, they appraise the value up front, then you mail off the device for them to verify. Once they verify, you get your money in the form of a gift card.
I'm just concern...

Not sure if anyone mentioned this, but MySpace was incredibly slow once it took off. If you read any of the books written about FaceBook, they will typically mention how MySpace could not keep up with its early growth and its network became overloaded....

| O-T Lounge|| re: What makes these worth almost $400? - DrewTheEngineer on 12/9/14 at 10:41 am|
They really aren't worth $400. As others have said, you are paying for the name/image.
I've never sampled any Beats headphones, but I bought (and returned) several headphones from Amazon and ended up buying the Audio Technica ATH-M50x for $200ish, and they sound fantastic.
Are you looking f...

| Outdoor Board|| Protecting recently planted trees from the winter cold - DrewTheEngineer on 11/12/14 at 1:30 pm|
Planted 3 crepe myrtles and 2 queen palms early this past summer. I'm guessing the crepe myrtles are more naturally resistant to cold, so I'm more concerned about losing the palms. So far I've got a few bales of pine straw to pack around their bases. Any other tips?...

This past summer was as good as I can remember rain-wise. I only had to run the sprinklers two or three times, and I was never not able to cut the grass due to ground saturation.
I could never live where there is water rationing....
