    YouTube TV prices will raise to $50

    I ditched cable a few years ago because it was over$150 a month for cable, phone, internet. Just do internet now for like $70, plus Netflix and Hulu. And then kids wanted Direct TV so they could watch sports, which was $35 a month, then went up to $40 when ATT bought them, and is now going up to...

    Samsung 4K freesync 28" monitor 299 @ Costco - warm

    Picked one of these up at Costco a couple months back. 2nd monitor for an iMac for the wife. Looked great, but it had an annoying whine to it that you just could not ignore. Tried all kinds of different brightness settings, different HDMI and Display Port cables, it just wouldn't go away. Might...

    UPS Tests Saturday Delivery as Web Shoppers’ Clout Increases

    That is funny they are so late to the game. Amazon has delivered on Saturday using carriers like OnTrac for a while, and now even does Sunday delivery free with Amazon Prime.

    Time Warner Wants Hulu To Stop Airing Current TV Shows

    I also just subscribed to Hulu for the commercial free option. If Hulu doesn't have current shows, there is no point in keeping the service. Netflix and Amazon Prime have plenty of content.

    UPS Having Trouble Handling Holiday Online Orders

    Two days this week I've had packages delivered while I was getting ready to leave the house, before 5:00 am. They're starting crazy early.

    Social Media Making Millennials Less Social

    I'm way too old to be considered a Millennial, but I am a recovering Facebook user. :p Turned off my account some months ago because I was becoming one of those thumb-staring zombies. For about a week I missed checking it and feared I would be missing out on stuff. I got over that. A few...

    Electric Vehicle Owners Turning Against Each Other

    We have charging stations in front of my office. We got a small subsidy/stipend to cover the inconvenience of the construction project. The company that manages the stations paid for the install, and charging is not free - you have an account and you pay different rates depending on if you use...

    Hulu May Launch Ad-Free Service

    I had Hulu Plus for a year or so when I cut the cord. The kids only used Netflix and Amazon, wife and I don't really watch anything but movies occasionally. Hulu just wasn't worth $8 a month plus the ads. Especially the same effin' ads over and over and over again. So I had to cancel it. Haven't...

    Who is still using a Sandy Bridge era chip

    Same here, except running my i5 at 4.5 ghz. Not any great reason to upgrade. Only a 6 or 8 core would really be a big bump for me when I encode video or process raw photos, but just not worth it yet with the price of DDR4.

    NVIDIA Interns Build Bikes for Low-Income Kids

    My company did a similar bike build for kids activity at one of our sales meetings. We had to earn virtual money doing various team building activities, and then with the money we could buy tools, the bikes, and helmets. Then we assembled them. Teams of 8 to 10 and each team built two bikes...

    FS: Antec Cases, Misc, SF Bay Area Pickup

    I have some cases that have been taking up space for builds that I will never get to. $15 per case (cheap!!), or first offer to take all six for $75 can have all of them. I'm in Fremont, CA - 94536 zip code near American High School if you're figuring out travel distance for pickup. I'm not...

    UPS Puts Packages On Car Roofs Now

    Our UPS driver is awesome. Tucks packages out of sight in an alcove next to our porch. If he misses us on a signature required package, he'll call our cell phone to see when we'll be home (we're usually shuttling kids to and from soccer practice). He'll often come back at the end of his route...

    Microsoft Attempting to Scare Windows XP Users Straight

    Agree - industrial setups will stay on XP for a while. Where I work, we needed to upgrade several computers that run test equipment in our lab. To upgrade our software to a version that will run on Windows 7 32-bit (:o) was going to be $50k. Equipment vendor doesn't have 64-bit unless we went to...

    Shockingly, You Still Hate Your Cable Company

    I'm happy with Comcast Business internet & phone. I didn't like Xfinity - data caps, and the bundle options cost too much. Getting just internet or phone unbundled was almost as expensive as the bundles.

    Hulu Has $695M In Annual Revenue

    I use the paid version and the ads don't bother me too much, because they are short. A lot are only 30s, most about 1 min, very occasionally a 2 minute ad and there are very few breaks for ads per show. Although I will admit if content is available with Amazon Prime I'll watch it there first...

    Poll: Which motherboard manufacturer are you loyal to?

    I've had Asus and Gigabyte, mostly Asus over the years. I loved my Gigabyte EP45-UD3P board, and would be loyal to Gigabyte based on that board alone. But over the last couple years I built three Z68 and one H67 builds with Gigabyte boards, and 3 out of 4 died far too young. So Asus is my go to...

    Studios Making Another Push For UltraViolet

    Totally agree with this. I was loading up digital copies of a few movies I bought a while back, three just had a code you entered into iTunes and it would download the MP4 file. The Ultraviolet copies required me to create an account, download software, and view them in their shitty software. So...

    Best Buy Moving Closer To $11B Buyout

    What is a good deal on a 3 TB now?

    I got a couple of the Seagate 3TB externals back in November - one for $110 from Amazon and one from Staples for about the same with a $25 off coupon. $130 seems like a decent enough price right now.

    Cable Bills Could Reach $200 A Month By 2020

    I recently dumped cable and switched to streaming. I got a couple Rokus and a digital antenna, so I get my local programming there (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX). I don't watch sports and I follow politics on the radio. Don't have Netflix, I have Hulu and Amazon Prime streaming. I don't watch many movies...
