I wanted to watch the Sugar Bowl (alma mater playing) and it was not on
broadcast TV. But ESPN streamed it for free. Worked well enough for me.
Net Flix is fun to watch too.
I watch most TV shows online and I just checked my
That is still smoking speed (the down) for most streaming content.
Bandwidth is not free so this stuff is highly compressed.
After a long incubation and where the internet speeds and computer
speeds really weren't there, online video is catching on rapidly.
We are not so far off that already the near homeless are watching on
their 4g phones. Crazy what people do and don't spend money on.
Breaking news, Apple introduces "The ipatch"! New technology that feeds
content directly to the optic nerve. It is being called the Borg mod in
some tech circles because it covers one eye making the user look like
the Star Trek cyborg villain. The new item is expected to break all
sales records and have people camping out in line at the retail
locations that will be selling the ipatch. :-)
Well, they were a big handful!
Seems like plastic and LSI's don't cost much in quantity.
I spent the extra bucks on my cell, $50. Having had a non clamshell, and
having butt dialed before my "boss", it was worth the extra money.
I have an acquaintance who is a total jerk, his voice mail was butt
dialed by someone he greatly admired. Unfortunately (or perhaps
fortunately) the call occurred while he was having a conversation of how
much better the Jerk's wife's life would be if she left him. Technology
always has unintended consequences!
I've had a TracFone for years and when they switched from analog to
digital the company sent me a replacement at no charge. I made up a name
for them to send it to so I retain privacy. No contracts, no
personal information is in their record about me so they can't violate
my privacy. It's amusing to see junk mail arrive for my imaginary cell
phone customer. :-)
Even 1.5Mb/s sometimes isn't sufficient for YouTube. It's better if you
pause the video long enough to allow the download to get well ahead of
the playback (or even complete). Or you can simply save the FLV (or MP4)
file, and play it back at leisure.
It must suck to be a member of the underprivileged class.
I signed up for Netflix streaming video a couple of weeks ago. I've finished
two seasons of a pay-tv series "The Tudors," and am now watching "Pillars of
the Earth" series from a novel by Ken Follett, plus a few interspersed
At 25-30Mbs (it varies), I'm in a happy place.
