Planet Earth will be the first thing I buy when I get a HD TV and a high def disc player. Until then I am holding off buying the regular DVD. I have seen it already in HD and man! nothing comes close.

Wow, the Wii sure is popular for its second year.

I'm surprised there were 3 matching items between "most wished for" and "most gifted" ("Noel" by Josh Groban, iPod nano, Numi's Bouquet bamboo gift set).

This list is much better than the PC World one. I don't know about everyone else, but I've been wishing for a baking mat for years.

Didn't know you could buy milk from Amazon...

I think you can buy anything from them short of a functioning nuclear weapon!

Once the HD format war is over, I'll be buying one for myself in the format winner.

I hope you live to a ripe old age; then maybe you'll get to see a winner!
