Instant on- how much battery life is saved when watching movies

So I got some movies from my brother-in-law and my Acer Aspire One doesn’t even really have enough of a battery to watch one movie [I only have two standard batteries for that computer].

I know my Samsung Q1U has an instant on feature where you can watch a movie or listen to music without fully launching Vista, but I have never used that feature.  The new SonyP is supposed to have such a feature as well. 

The major problem with using such a feature before was that all my videos and music is in iTunes, which won’t play.  I should try this feature out and see what I can get on my batteries!

I really need an easy way to transfer recordings from my Comcast Motorola DVR to my computer.  I have a SlingBox, but on my OQO 02 it really stutters when playing.  I saw a Pinnacle Video transfer device that you connect between your video source and a computer, flash drive, or hard drive to record the video.  I was about to plunk down my credit card at the Circuit City closing sale (30% off right now) but first I pulled out my iPhone and read the reviews on Amazon, not so good 😦

So, I am still looking!

My Samsung Q1 Ultra isn’t selling

Well, a little more than a week later, my Samsung is still not sold.

I just don’t get it.  I have 157 positive reviews, I have the device, all original accessories, PLUS another case, the USB keyboard, dock, and the extended battery all for $799 or best offer and no bites.  There are many others (without additional accessories) selling for more than $700 but I only had one inquiry and 3 watchers.

The same is true of a LV wallet I am currently selling.  An identical wallet in same condition just sold for $502 (plus $15 shipping), but with 2 hours to go my reserve of $425 hasn’t been met (at $280 right now) and no one bit on my Buy It Now price of $499 with free shipping.

I don’t understand why my competitive pricing doesn’t get the sale???  I take TONS of pics and they are both listed on Bonanzle and eBay.

Makes me wonder….
