Although we're all OT, thanks for the info about this settlement.  The 
news I read reported it differently.  Didn't know the amount, the 20% 
payment required, and the manufacturer restrictions.

Phillips makes CD players (portable and component), probably music CD 
recorders, I'd imagine they brand DVD machines.  Norelco makes pretty 
good shavers.  I've had mine over 30 years and it's never needed any 
parts.  Did need a good cleaning a few times... then again, I've had 
some type of beard for 30 years too ;-)

As I'm sure you know Phillips owns all the companies you mentioned.  I'm 
sure they don't make half the things they brand, and they probably make 
half the stuff branded by other companies. ;-)
