The 1980s was a glorious decade to say least. This decade initiated great cultural and technological advances which still are shaping world in which we live today. Companies launched in this decade include CNN, MTV, USA Today, and technology unleashed in this decade were video recorder, personal computer, compact discs, satellite dishes and grandaddy of video games today - Pac-Man. Meanwhile, in rest of country, babies were nursing, beggining to crawl, walk or talk. These were no ordinary babies - but Star Babies. Of course at time they were oblivious to their potential and influence that they would later have on lives of all of us. What made these Star Babies different from all other children who share same birthdates? Was it destiny, luck, hard work or a combination of all of these?

Choosing the right HDTV antenna for youWritten by Kenny Hemphill
Choosing an HDTV antenna can be a frustrating business. However, if you prefer to receive HDTV through an antenna, rather than a satellite or cable subscription, there are a couple of things that will make life easier.
First of all, if you can, you should opt a roof or attic mounted HDTV antenna. This will give you best chance of picking up a good signal and is a must if you a re in an area where signal strength is poor such where you live some distance away from nearest transmitter or where your signal is affected by hills or other environmental factors.
If an external HDTV antenna is not an option, perhaps because you live in an apartment or in a building of historic interest, then you'll have to go for an internal, set-top antenna.
Unfortunately, every HDTV antenna is not alike and quality of your picture can vary greatly depending on which antenna you choose. So how do you know which one to go for? Perhaps best way is to find out from people who already has an internal HDTV antenna, how it works for them. The best way is to talk to people you know - particularly those in same apartment block. Failing that, user reviews on Web are a good source.
