I refuse to get one because Nat Geo basically stole the photos 
from the photographers who shot them. Paying for onetime usage in the 
magazine then making this CD and never paying anything to those who 
created the images for this second use.  Currently there is a lawsuit 
by many of the photographers to regain fair compensation for this 
use.  Fred Ward former LUG member and Nat Geo photographer is 
involved in this and knows in great detail what is going on with it.
