Making the Switch to HDTV

- This past week, I FINALLY made the transition to HD television. Oh, for a long while, I've had a TV capable of the appropriate resolution, and enjoyed the pristine picture with DVDs and BluRays.

I love DirecTV, and for me, their service, performance and customer support has been second to none.

The Trolley Problem, by Judith Jarvis Thomson
