Not just cell phones, the latest and greatest smart phone.

Not just a TV, a 60+ inch LCD TV.

A pimped out Cadillac with rims worth more than my 10 year old truck and 2-3 gold teeth.

Hey, I still have one.  Comes in handy now and then since it also has a DVD recorder and I can copy an old VHS tape if needed.  Transferred all of my family's home moves that way.  Pretty much it just gets used as a DVD player in the computer room.

My father-in-law, and if you're not careful, I'll subject you to one of his lectures on the subject!
