$100, 37-inch, Sony Flat-screen For Sale

Faux TVSAN LEANDRO, CALIF.: There are no free lunches, nor are there 37-inch, Sony flat-screen TVs for $100, but there are bizarre imitations. A 52-year-old man in suburban San Francisco was busted for selling what he purported to be a Sony, 1080p 37-incher, the San Jose Mercury News reports. It was actually an oven door decorated with Sony logo and various “Full HD” stickers, and a $1,949 Best Buy price tag. RCA cables and a remote were shrink-wrapped onto the black-glassed door for effect.

The man was pulled over by police after they’d received an anonymous call from an intended patsy, to whom oven-door entrepreneur tried to peddle a TV out of the trunk of his 1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

Police confiscated the oven door. No charges were filed.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
