Re: “Digital video providers could be the end of your cable bill

Hey something I want to put on there that will be briefly mentioned in my upcoming article- AVOID KODI.

As I want to keep in my article, recall in the 80's those "legal" cable box channel descramblers? They did not last, did not work well (KODI with add-on's is better), and were illegal.

Well KODI, the software that most of those Chinese KODI boxes are loaded with require additional software and often makes them illegal if not at least VERY VERY close. The boxes support drop quick as well- good luck suing an overseas overnight company that changes names (even in this country).

They you are on your own. Then you are really stuck doing illegal practices to get those illegal channels.

HBO, NETFLIX, etc.- legal??? No my friend, not. Not for long anyways in the USA.

I'd put money on that one.

I am open to discussion.

Re: “Finding cheap internet is not easy

Hey- I get excited when I see a "ditch witch" running full time around my neighborhood. I truly hope FIOS/fiber is coming.

FOLKS!!!!! DID YOU KNOW THAT VERIZON FIOS OFFER 750 Mbs download speeds (same upload speed) for $70 in some markets? It's a no brainer if they don't have a data cap or now worse than Comcast at 1 Terabyte (our local shackles).

I would personally LOVE TO HAVE THAT. I hope things change. Let's all help one another out.

I feel a petition coming on. Anyone agree?

Re: “ISPs are set to sell your personal data to the highest bidder, how can you stop them?

Hey HolaMakina. I get it. There's a lot of $ to be made with this industry. Well TONS ACTUALLY.

I've signed petitions, complained directly to the FCC, and much more. ALL WE CAN DO IS TRY.

BUT WE MUST TRY I FEEL.

I am behind you on what you say above. Not sure about Bernie but I don't get into politics much if I can avoid it on here. This is not the place.

It is the place to discuss technology, help one another with it, and if lucky- change the landscape of it.

If we don't, who will? Thanks for your vocal opinions. You are not alone. I hope you will read more and be a contributor with your comments. They are welcomed.

Re: “Your technological tour guide

Hey so you know friends- I am up for most questions on tech and I will try to answer them. If I cannot, I will refer you or find the information lest you need a serious solution say networking a multi protocol network at your small business or home. Even then.....

Re: “Could a basic antenna replace your expensive TV provider?

Hey BTW- saw some legit antennas for $5 each on techbargains.com / amazon.com .
I bet as good as the regular go arounds, if you know what I mean. Don't overpay!

Great for news, if you like 24 hours of Law and Order (some channel seems to always have it), crazy old western TV series, Cops Reloaded (LOL), and if you are odd like me- People's Court and all the other much worse court shows including Judge Judy (not a fan personally but parents still watch it even with cable!).

Good luck to all. It's a tough world out there!
