First is the fun to hold and use device (if you've registered for wedding gifts you may have done something similar before).
The second is the semi helpful, semi annoying chirped coupon that comes up. I believe these merely to be what is on special already, not new/special coupons for using the device.
Checking out was easy, only make sure to not put your stuff in the bagging area or it isn't happy.

Speaking of that:
- why does Opera skip half way down a page when clicking on a "#<link>"?
- why can't I get FriendFeed to accept my username and password with Opera?

So how do I get Word to be in blue/white mode but not Outlook? When I changed the Options in either, it affected the other.

The store itself is rather austere, probably one of the reasons they can afford such cheap prices. I have no qualms with the look/feel of the store. And I really dig all the unique products that they have (I saw a drink that was from the seed of a plant I've never heard of, but by golly it looked refreshing).
Along the back wall (not that great a wall; that joke stunk) they have fish and meats. Which included the following:
I have no clue what a "buffolo" fish is, but there it was. While some of the pics are blurry, it's because the creatures in the pictures were alive and squirming.
PS: that part of the store didn't smell so great.

I like the scrolling button with the Blackberry Browsery. The down and side scrolling is ideal; the down lets you go through links at a medium pace, the side scroll gives you a slower more detailed scroll. Hitting the space bar lets you zoom past items.
It's nice that Opera uses the side scroll to zoom past items, but it means the down scroll takes years on a link crowded page (think Google Reader Mobile).
The shortcuts with the Blackberry Browser are also superior. I hit "k" and I see my shortcuts. I hit "r" and the page refreshes, I hit "h" and I get my homepage (Remember the Milk). It's way more complicated with Opera.
Pros of Opera are that it loads a lot faster, especially when you account for the data flow initiation. And the Blackberry Browser doesn't seem to cache, which Opera does and really speeds up browsing if you don't mind a static / non-refreshed version of the previous page.
Combine the above, and I'm a happy browsing camper.

So for me, it was an alumni showdown.
If Gary knew Grieivis was smiling, he would have yelled:
This was nearly the only time Gary wasn't yelling, and it's blurry because of his rumored pregame tequila shot ritual:
