This is great for me since I solely use it as a media device now and game on PC, voice navigation has spoiled me and Id probably buy a used 360/kinect over a new DVD/Streaming media player but any idea how they are going to handle the refund in regards to cost.. should I be on the lookout for a good low-priced 12mo… » 5/16/14 4:13pm 5/16/14 4:13pm

My bank pulls you up by account number not name.. Sometimes I dont even give the person a name for deposit, just rattle off the account number, the account lock and hand them the deposit.. Im used to being just a number at the bank so I feel like its kind of small-town-1950's-americana to bank with your name. He… » 3/27/14 12:57pm 3/27/14 12:57pm

I am all about the Chromecast, I got 3mos of Netflix with mine so it effectively cost like $12.. I had nothing to lose at all. It does everything I could ask from it, and I'll never have to plug my laptop or my gfs laptop into the TV again.

I guess if they start delaying that and Amazon raises the price of Prime I'd have… » 2/06/14 2:22pm 2/06/14 2:22pm

I have been debating on whether to renew at $79 so I would almost definitely not pay any more dollars for it. Netflix, Hulu and YouTube offer enough to watch that I barely use prime video (I do buy movies/seasons on Amazon) and I use the shipping much less now that most stores are price competitive or just match… » 1/31/14 3:48pm 1/31/14 3:48pm

You can use a program called RWeverything to obtain your BIOS stored product keys from windows 8. Run program, Click ACPI then MSDM and the code will be at the bottom. I have done this with Win 8 PRO systems, not sure how non-pro would be. The problem you run into is the "product-key-only-upgrade" media not accepting… » 1/30/14 11:07am 1/30/14 11:07am

As a New Yorker I was actually confused when I saw some of the reports yesterday about traffic and snow.. This explains it much better instead of the "THERES SNOW! LOOK TRAFFIC!" vibe I got. Though to say our roads are cleared and therefore just slick when we get to them or that a few inches of snow would require… » 1/29/14 12:47pm 1/29/14 12:47pm
