You mean you didn't get yours?

(Seriously though, I once saw the "component stereo" you got by signing up
for Sport's Illustrated at a garage sale. It was an AM/FM radio with two
speakers about the 1/3 size of a disposable camera.)

Regarding cheap digital cameras, they are cheap because they suck. I
knuckled under and got a "real" Digicam (the Olympus C-3030Z) to replace my
nearly on-topic Minolta Dimage V) and I must say, the difference is
remarkable (they both cost about the same, and the Olympus is cheaper in
inflation adjusted dollars)
