BeoVision Eclipse Wood Edition: $16k worth of luxury television

I could just as easily say the BeoVision Eclipse Wood Edition is a work of art - but that's not nearly so important at the moment.

Watch Bill Gates guess how much groceries cost

Shopping for groceries isn't something most people look forward to. It takes time, there are crowds to deal with, you have to lug the items out to the car and then bring them inside from the car.
