This CANNOT Be Emphasized Enough

Around the holidays many a gift giver is picking up the latest and greatest in 1080p high definition entertainment. My father, for example, is about to lay down his wallet for this. Of course, I had to remind dad that when buying his new Mantown centerpiece, he should not forget to buy the HDMI cable.

And as a reminder to dad or anyone else on your list (I know that 52-inch Samsung listed under gift ideas for "Cousin Ed" is merely a code for "self giting"), remeber this...

As endorsed by CNet (and the entertainment geekdom as a whole)- do NOT under any circumstance, even at the risk of illness, dismemberment or even (however unlikely) death, do NOT ever- and I mean NEVER- buy expensive HDMI cables.
