I just had to ask this question. A female bartender told me this. The Nickname I gave to her is (Brain drain) because she will spew so much **** out her mouth as fact it's not even funny. Problem is, she probably gives so many people so much bad information it's terrible. I told her in this case I would research it before taking this particular thing she told me as fact. (then again I never take anything she says as fact)

Here are some examples of the **** that has spewed out her mouth as fact.

1) Her boyfriend recently bought a Google phone running Windows phone 7
2) If the cops ever want to see video footage from inside the bar, all they have to do is ask for the mp3.
3) In this particular question she wasn't sure what TV it was, though she thought it was either Sony or Bravia.
4) She use to pay for Limewire. She would pay $1 a month there for she was paying for the stuff she was downloading which made it legal. LOL
5) She is a speed reader and can read 3,000 pages in 4 hours. But after her watching read on her phone she flipped the page once every minute. LOL

She said her uncle recently bought a new TV with motion control (kiniect) type controls. The maker of the TV also charges a subscription to use apps. So even to use an app like facebook, there was a monthly charge. Apparently he is currently paying $89 dollars a month for a subscription from the TV manufacture. Oh and the TV doesn't work unless you have internet hooked up to it.

I know what she said is probably pure crap, but before responding I wanted to do some fact checking.

Only TV I know that uses the motion controls is the new Samsungs "E" series, although I am not aware of any monthly fee that is charged for use of the Apps (I dont have this TV) - based on your friend.. the $90 a month might just be the cable bill..lol

Samsung TV. and he probably subscribes to some kind of subscription in one of the apps, like a netflix subscription or something, or like was said before the cable bill :)
