A salve for those still smarting about their HD DVD purchase: Best Buy (BBY) will give you a $50 gift card if you bought a player or a HD DVD drive from them. And if you were snookered into buying a player from Circuit City in the last 90 days, you can return the whole thing to them for store credit. Hurry up!
