    HTC Thunderbolt

    You will want to turn off and turn the phone back on. Sounds like the number is coming from the sim card and not your phone #. A simple power cycle should fix it.

    The Big Debate: Verizon Upgrade Now or Later?

    Yeah I'm returning my Thunderbolt phone today and think I'll wait for the incredible 2. Just can't handle the battery life.

    Thunderbolt or Droid Charge?

    Funny I'm actually taking my TB back to Verizon today to get something else. The battery life just doesn't work for me. Turning off features that drew me to the phone in the first place isn't an acceptable solution. I may get a Droid X since they can easily be found free with extended contract...

    Hulu Plus Going 50% Off This Week?

    Nope, I still wouldn't in spite of NBC not allowing the iPad to stream on their website. Hulu Plus is great for really die-hard TV show watchers.

    Renewing 2-year w/ verizon... get phone now or hold off?

    Hey all... I'll keep this post fairly simple (and probably a tad bit trite) but, next weekend I'll have the option to upgrade my phone with Verizon's "new every two". I like the Droid and my wife likes the Eris, but with the talk of an iPhone coming around at some point to Verizon and with who...

    DirecTV or Dish Network or Comcast...?

    Thanks for the replys. I too am nervous about how the HD programming will look through Comcast, but it could be worth a shot for sure.

    DirecTV or Dish Network or Comcast...?

    Hey ladies and gents... looking to get some opinions here. My 2 years with DirecTV is up tomorrow and I'm looking to possibly make a switch. I would consider moving to Dish Network or even do some sort of double-play with Comcast. Here are couple things I'm considering. 1) I haven't had any...

    Happy Windows 7! How'd your install go?

    Running Win 7 Ultimate on my Macbook, had a blazing fast installation on a new partition I made through bootcamp.... I love the ability to switch between the two OS's, and Win7 is extremely snappy, very nice!

    Dell’s Earnings Drop 63%

    Bottom line is if you want to speak to someone in the US, be able to schedule appointments with your tech, and have your phone answered quickly, then you pay for the premium service above and beyond what is offered in the "standard" parts / labor / tech warranty... ie., you get what you pay...

    Dell’s Earnings Drop 63%

    I do stand corrected as I mis-read your initial statement about them being "solid", my apologies. However, I will say that unless you are building your own system, nearly every computer company out there has outsourced a portion of its business. I used to build my own systems, but buy with large...

    Dell’s Earnings Drop 63%

    not sure how people's nationalities relates to whether or not a computer is "solid"... also funny how they were one of the last computer companies to outsource (following HP and others) may want to re-think your statement. p.s., they do offer support in the U.S. for an additional cost if...

    File Sharing Has Become the New Normal in Canada

    Who is to decide what is fair and what isn't? So what you are saying then is it is OK for the consumer to decide whether or not the contracts between the artist and label is OK or not? Being a consumer myself I certainly will decide whether or not I feel like something is worth the cost. If it...

    File Sharing Has Become the New Normal in Canada

    Remember that Artists and Labels both agree about how much / whom and when both parties get paid. Both sides have sets of lawyers who take care of that. To say that the artists don't agree to this at contract signing is naive...(And this is coming from an artists' perspective). Just like if...

    File Sharing Has Become the New Normal in Canada

    Steve, I'm pretty surprised to think your opinions of the music industry reflect the sentiments of your viewership. I work in the industry and no matter how you look at it, if you are allowing others to take and freely distribute copyrighted works you can replace the word "sharing" with...

    First Windows 7 Upgrade Deal Offered

    Yes it is... but it certainly isn't a news flash that companies will always be coming out with newer more updated products based (hopefully) off customer feedback. I got windows vista because I was getting a new computer. I don't feel "burned" by Microsoft, I just won't be upgrading until I need...

    odd question

    Well.. I guess I should just box up the system and sell it as is... then start from scratch. The satellite speakers are actually ok.. but I suppose it would be easier to sell everything, because yes I would have to cut the speaker wire going into the back of the sub... I was looking at the Sony...

    odd question

    Hey everyone... I'm looking to get a receiver for my current audio setup at home. I currently have a Philips "all-in-one" setup where all the speakers plug into the subwoofer and then the sub connects to the receiver. This question may be kind of silly and I apoligize for my lack of home theatre...

    Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Product Manager Interview

    I think you are missing the point of the product. This is a $350 product.... you can't compare it to one you just spent $1500 on. Kudos to your purchase, but "tiny" drives aren't the "big" deal on this system. Look at the target audience.
