The store listing will give you the address, phone number, hours of operation, the number of miles you are away and the current inventory levels.

The map shows the store you chose and additional features of that particular store location.

Do you have a lot of people you correspond with over e-mail, but never make it into your contact list? Let Gwabbit scan incoming e-mails, find contacts, and put them into your contact list for you! How does it work? According to the description, “The client monitors opened emails. If a signature is found, the client prompts the user, and asks if the user wants to save it. It also searches the local address book to see if an address entry exists for that sender, and if so, asks the user whether he wants the information merged into the existing contact, or a new contact be created.” This free version lets your contacts know they’ve been added via Gwabbit, but the paid version does not.

The future is here: Samsung launches their first line of 3D TVs

View the 3D TVs we have available:

Samsung 46″ 3D Ready LED 1080p HDTV
Samsung 55″ 3D Ready LED 1080p HDTV

Movies like Avatar and Monsters vs. Aliens have showed us how absorbing a 3D experience can be in a theater. Samsung is bringing this same captivating 3D experience to your home with their new line of 3D LED TVs, complete with Samsung Apps. Following the flat screen revolution, this combination of 3D entertainment and downloadable applications is an impressive next step in the development of television sets.

Similar to the 3D theater experience, these TVs require each viewer to wear a pair of Samsung 3D Active Glasses to experience the 3D content. 3D glasses that you get in the movie theater now will not work on these TVs, as 3D TV glasses use active liquid crystal shutter technology that movie theater 3D glasses do not.

Should you wish to watch TV the old-fashioned way, these 3D TVs are able to broadcast 2D content easily. The 2D output’s picture quality is as clear as non-3D models. You can also watch 2D programming in 3D!

Samsung Apps are also included on the 3D sets and allows you access to a wide range of the same kinds of apps you’d find on your mobile phone; including Pandora, Twitter, YouTube, Skype, Monopoly and more. Netflix and Blockbuster movies will be conveniently streamable on-demand right through your broadband connection.

With this 3D format comes 3D Blu-ray players and special programming just for these televisions. 3D Blu-Ray players are currently available, ESPN has announced that they will be the first 3D TV network by the end of 2010, and Sony has announced that the existing PlayStation 3 console will support 3D Blu-ray playback via a simple software update, making it a great buy with the Samsung sets. Until 3D broadcasting and the PlayStation 3 releases their firmware update later this year, however, a 3D Blu-Ray player is necessary to take full advantage of the 3D technology now.

Check out more about the Samsung 3D LED TVs.
