Thursday Bag o’ Apple

I finally have an iPhone. My life is now complete: except for Donna’s old Dell desktop (which I never use), every other wirelessly-connected electronic device in the house bears the silhouette of an apple.

Everyone’s getting excited over aerial drone deliveries again, and I’m here to piss on the dream. Ever since [...]

I Hate to Complain, But … (Updated)

Streaming video rant follows.

A little over a year ago we invested in a Roku box. We upgraded our in-house wireless network and signed up for increased download rates from Comcast, our high-speed internet service provider. And we subscribed to two streaming services, Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Over the past year Amazon Prime streaming has [...]
