To the 20ish guy on Bushard Street in Huntington Beach last Saturday around noon: If you're going to tell your friends about wanting a "used Sony rear-projection TV" so you can get a "new, free Sony 3D TV" for exchanging the old one, don't do it in public. If the used one were registered, you might get popped for fraud. Just FYI!
