    I guess thats the flaw with asking about ICs on a truck forum.... I'll figure it out with some experimenting and prototyping. Also will try to make a phone charger using a regulator and a 9v battery. There are instructions online for it.

    Surreal next.

    Spot-on, Donyms.

    @Curky, based on what I know of the PS3, the PS3 launched in North America in November of 2006. The 20GB unit had a price point of $499 while the 60GB unit had a price point of $599. In August of 2009 Sony announced a price drop on all of the current models in North America (including the 80GB and 120GB units it had produced after initial launch) by $100.00. In early 2012 Sony announced a relaunch of the (now slimmer) PS3 with 250GB at a price point of $269 with some bundled software ... and then shortly thereafter for $249 without the bundle.

    So, I have to ask -- where are you coming up with half the price two years after launch -- as I can find no facts to support that? What I know of the PS3 is that it had a price drop of $100.00 about 3 years after its initial launch ... and eventually was relaunched with 4+ times the space of the 60GB unit ... at half the price of the 60GB unit -- but that took ~5.5 years.

    So let's do some math:

    • $100/3 = $33.3333/yr cost for entertainment in the first three years -- if you buy at launch instead of waiting
    • $250/5.5 = $45.4545/yr cost for entertainment in the first 5.5 years -- if you buy at launch instead of waiting

    Are you willing to miss out on 3 years of fun with a device to save $33.3333 bucks/yr? Are you willing to miss out on 5.5 years of fun with a device to save $45.4545/yr? Or is the entertainment value and device capability worth more to you? Any way you slice it, those costs are very low for the value the devide brings. Heck, at $8/mo, basic Netflix costs more per year...
