The New Wave: Connecting with Fixed Wireless

Internet surrounds our daily life. It's central to paying bills, finding a job, working from home and communicating with others. Even our smart appliances require connectivity.

Ditching My Landline Phone: Ooma is Better and Cheaper

We don’t use our home phone much anymore. We mostly use our cell phones, even when at home. It got to the point where most of the calls we received on our traditional landline were telemarketers interrupting mealtimes. But it’s still handy to have a common home phone number for appointment reminders, calls from relatives and occasional long phone calls without draining my cell phone battery.

The MLB Streaming Video App: A Better Way to Watch Baseball

I’ll start by mentioning that if you want to watch every MLB game live for your local baseball team, the MLB streaming video app is not the whole story for you. But for the rest of us, it’s such a better viewing experience. And for me, it resulted in big savings as well.

Understanding Wi-Fi

It’s hard to beat the mobility and convenience of Wi-Fi. But Wi-Fi is not perfect. Wi-Fi operates in two unlicensed wireless frequency bands, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The two Wi-Fi frequency bands have pros and cons, and it’s important to understand how and when to use each band.

Getting the Internet to Every Corner of My Home

I wish my big ISP would focus on how well the internet worked within my house, not just the link from their data center to my modem. For better or worse, the home network has become a DIY activity for most households. Whether I like it or not, I’ve become the local IT department for my family and visitors.

Demystifying Data Caps

My service provider has a data cap buried in the fine print of my bill. For the big internet service providers, the cap is typically in the 250 to 300 GB range. But what does this really mean? How do I translate this data cap into something meaningful, like hours of video streamed?

Over-the-air DVR: A Useful Interim Product

Now that I am receiving “free” over-the-air (OTA) crystal clear HDTV at home, I’m trying to decide if I want to record the live broadcasts. With a few exceptions, most national broadcast TV is now available from streaming services like Hulu with a one-day delay. So if I’m not going to watch it live, then can’t I just wait until the next day?

Over-the-air HDTV: Great Picture Quality

Most of the prime time shows are available through inexpensive streaming services, such as Hulu, but I still sometimes want to watch my local broadcast stations for things like news and live local sports. In most cases, the local feeds are currently unavailable from streaming services.

Dumping My Pay TV Package

After looking at our $111 Pay TV bill for the past few months, I finally became disgusted enough to unleash myself from our mid-tier TV bundle (two TV’s, a DVR and no premium channels). The most irritating part for me is that we only watched a handful of the 200+ channels in the package, but my service provider only offered the channels that I wanted as part of a bundled package.
