Even the networks are now beginning to put their shows onto their web site normally the day after it airs. So why do we continue to pay so much for TV programming? I think it is history.

Twitter was created at a time in technology when we were not even yet using text messages. This was perfect timing because it allowed people to communicate with each other in a direct and simple way. What is Twitter good for? I use it to follow news such as my local news, CNN and ESPN. You can also follow your favorite movie theater when a movie is released you could get a tweet. … Continue reading

Do You Have A Domain Name

What is a domain name? We have all seen these and we probably know about a thousand domain names in our heads. But did you ever think about owning your own piece of the Internet? You should stake your claim to your piece of the new gold rush. Why would you want a domain name? Easy if you don’t buy your name, I mean your given name someone else will.

3D or 4K Television What Will Win

We talked sometime ago about the fight in the early 70’s with the VCR using either VHS or BETA tapes. We all know that VHS won the war and became the standard. Then the fight for the Internet with web browsers. We had the fight between Microsoft IE and Netscape, with Microsoft winning out by using a shady tactic of FREELY giving away their IE browser. Now this brings us to the war for your dollars. And this war is coming to your living room. 3D TV’s were first really seen two years ago at  CES and really just didn’t … Continue reading

I know that just in our kitchen these days it seems we are always plugging something in to help us cook a meal.
