    Atlantic Broad Band Modem / Router combo

    My two cents--never buy a combo unit. Always buy a separate modem and separate router--much better security and easier to upgrade later: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/home-networking-explained-part-8-cable-modem-shopping-tips/

    YoutubeTV 30% price increase!

    Wow. I love YoutubeTV but when they added 8 viacom channels today (MTV, Comedy Central, Paramount, etc.) they announced a $15 per month price increase. I might as well go back to Directv...

    Out of all the closings

    Not bothered greatly, but doesn't make sense--why in the world can't I use the self-service car wash (foaming brushes, etc.) behind the Cheseldine car wash on 235? I would be washing all of those germs off of my car, right?

    Madness at Nicolletti's Pizza

    Just picked up an order curbside at Best Buy--line is all the way down to the Best Buy intersection. I thought maybe there was an accident or something, then when I got closer to the shopping center by Nicolletti's they were in line to turn in there. CRAZY.

    Do you use a VPN?

    I'm thinking about subscribing to a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service but am wondering what kind of login problems it causes with sites such as Paypal, Facebook, online banking, 2 factor authentication, etc. For those of you that are using a VPN, do you have any login troubles? Do you have...

    If you have Youtube TV...

    Thanks to YTTV and EPIX, there is now a 30-day free trial of the cable channel. You don't need to do anything to activate it, and it will not auto-renew for the paid service once the month is up. (If you have customized your channel guide, you might need to sign in on desktop and make sure EPIX...

    Some interesting news for TV cordcutters

    Same here--Super Bowl was flawless. I also like the fact that you can set the resolution easily to save on bandwidth. I keep it set on 480p for most regular shows (looks just fine), then bump it up to 720p or 1080 for movies and sports. ...and it will be a cold day in "heck" before I allow the...

    Some interesting news for TV cordcutters

    Good for you. I'm saving $70 a month (before the latest price increase) switching from Directv to YoutubeTV. I was a little worried because I have chronic DVR-itis and record everything, but YoutubeTV has UNLIMITED DVR so I record everything (including sports), then watch a little later so I can...

    DirecTV at it again....

    We are enjoying YoutubeTV. It does take a bit to get used to it but so far so good. The one thing I like the most is the unlimited DVR. It basically works like this: You search for your show or movie, then click on it You click on "add to library" EVERY time that show/movie is on, no matter...

    DirecTV at it again....

    I was with Directv since Dec. 1996. I dropped them like a rock in December after my $40 a month discount ended, and they offered no discount at all for the coming year. They made no effort whatsoever to keep a 23 year customer. I replaced them with YoutubeTV. Went from what would have been $161...
