Megapixels don't matter, it's the quality of the lens that matters most, next is the quality of the sensor.  An 8MP image from a new phone still can't match the quality of one from a 9 year old 6MP DSLR with a high end lens.
Bingo, I was about to say the same before I saw you'd done so. :)

MPs just tell you the size of the eventual image not if it'll be good or not, tons of DSLRs are minuscule when it comes to MPs compared to the majority of point and shoots (most are certainly 10MP but 12 seems to be becoming the standard, my current one is 16) but rarely will a PnS take a better picture (some are fantastic though again due to things other than the size of the eventual image they take).

I hate the HTC camera phone one. They paid a dumbass photography student to use one on his first professional shoot. Ok so he is a paid student (he is inexperienced and paid to say good things) it is his first professional shoot and he is using a low resolution camera. camera phones are what 8-9 mp while a top of the line digital camera is 16+MP. Yeah smart move.

Haven't seen that one but that's a pretty lame premise.  If the phone company is the first to pay him to take pictures, then technically it is his first professional shoot, so they are not lying even though the pictures would be unusable for publication. Megapixels don't matter, it's the quality of the lens that matters most, next is the quality of the sensor.  An 8MP image from a new phone still can't match the quality of one from a 9 year old 6MP DSLR with a high end lens.

Well that too. Yeah a crappy lens vs something designed for good pictures.

What I don't understand is why the net clicks always zero out, but the shutdown clicks are off.  We're not talking about a simple math error here.  There's a discrepancy of hundreds of clicks.

I kinda hate the Wendys chicken sandwich commercial where the redhead sucks her friends in with some sort of story about something being spicy or something, and one of the guys ask "How does it end?"  and then she throws him the keys and says something like "with you driving us to wendys" AND THEN THEY ALL GO! I just don't like it because me and most of my friends are jerks,  and had it been us, the exchange probably would have ended with "Screw you, it was YOUR idea, YOU drive and get some for everyone, and you might as well stop at the store and get some beer, cuz you KNOW that we aren't all going to hang out together tonight without getting tanked up, and there aint no sense in making TWO trips, cuz parking is a bitch in this city"
  Like I said, it's probably because we are jerks.

There are TV ads around here for those title/payday loan places.  They're cheap and poorly made and feature people smiling and dancing happily.  I didn't realize getting suckered into some usurious loan was such a joyful event.

Meh, I'm at the age now that if you put an incredibly HAWT woman on one side of the scale, and the prospect of staying in a room equipped with a couch AND a  t.v on the other side of the scale, they would be about even, you throw in someone BRINGING me food and beer? Man, those scales are going to tip so hard, the redhead will be thrown to her car. :)

Okay, there's a commercial that keeps playing on a Twitch.TV stream for Ragu. It's promoting Ragu Chili Mac.

That's ground turkey, macaroni and Ragu.

Oh, dear lord. That sounds completely unappetizing. Eating planting soil sounds better than that concoction.

To make it worse, when it comes up in the ad rotation, it tends to play 5 or 6 times in a row. Ick.

Sounds like a version of beefaroni.  It's pretty good in my book.
