I’m SO EXCITED! I just won $800,000 Canadian dollars.  That’s gotta be at least $25 US dollars or something like that, right?

I know everyone is going to be JEALOUS when they find out that I won and THEY didn’t!

Transporter Week 1

March 2, 2013 4 comments

Last week, I received my  Transporter. You can read the unboxing and my thoughts after 1 day. After a week of use, I thought I’d update my impression of the device.

IF

The biggest thing I’ve seen people talk about is how this is a Dropbox replacement.  And it is not bad as a Dropbox replacement.  Except, Dropbox is integrated into so many things. 1Password, FileThisFetch, etc. Transporter, not so much … yet.  Who knows what the future will bring.

I love Dr Suess books. There is nothing more magical than reading them with a child.

Forget the Hopper, I have the Destroyer

So, the networks

Aren’t

Too

Happy

with the Hopper from Dish Network.

Specifically, they are not happy that the service allows users to easily skip commercials.  I got a Replay TV (Actually, a Panasonic Showstopper PVR) in 2000 that I used until they pulled the “lifetime” channel guide a few years ago. I paid a fortune for that, we need to work on the definition of “lifetime” I guess. The Replay TV had a button on the remote that would jump forward 30 seconds.  Of course, Replay TV kind of flew under the RADAR, but it was a very handy feature when commercials came on.

Plex Has Come a Long Way

February 27, 2013 Leave a comment

Several years ago, I was using Plex as a way to watch movies. I had my TV connected to my iMac as a second monitor and used Plex as the interface to control the content on my TV.

When I first started using it, Plex was standard Mac app, somewhat like a cross between Front Row and iTunes. It was an offshoot of XBMC, and it has really evolved.

Avoid Telemarketer Calls on iPhone

February 24, 2013 Leave a comment

About once a week, I get a call from “The Captain” telling me I’ve won a free cruise.  It always starts with the sound of a cruise ship horn. It also always comes from a Washington state phone number, so I have gotten used to just ignoring the call if it comes from there.

But now, I have found a great idea from Blogger David Smith on how to minimize the impact of unwanted calls. You can’t stop them, but David’s idea greatly reduces how disruptive they are.

Check it out here.

Transporter Day 1

February 23, 2013 2 comments

Summary:

I got a Transporter this week and set it up this morning. I’ve been playing with it all day and I’m trying to really like it, but it just isn’t quite there for me … YET. But, this is pre-release, so I’m hopeful that they can address some of the concerns I am outlining here. In my conclusion, I point out that I believe most of the issues can be addressed with software updates and I outline some of the things I think they need to address.
