Rdio, a love story

Jun 9, 2011 by

It’s true, I’ve fallen for a music service with poor spelling. It has all the right things any man would want. Yes, I know it clearly wasn’t the spelling bee queen, but who likes the letter “a” anyway, so unnecessary. It has a Windows app, works in a browser, Android...

Comcast Deleting Duplicate HD Channels

May 8, 2011 by

I just checked my mail today and got a nice little memo from Comcast stating that the HD channels with 3 digits, in the rage of 175-380ish are being phased out in favor of 4 digit numbers. I’m not certain if this is a nation wide rollout or if it’s just a local thing, but it seems...

I’ve been looking for an upgrade to my Xbox 360 used as a Windows Media Center Extender from my beastly desktop computer in my bedroom. The reasons for this are numerous. I’ve struggled with networking issues, Media Center native codec compatibility, and a lack of plugins. The Xbox 360...

This Week on Netflix – The Pixar Story

May 6, 2011 by
