    Wifi and plaster walls

    Had similar issues when I moved into a roughly 3,000 sq ft old house over two floors, was using a slightly older router and range extender. I've installed the Google Nest router and 3 Google Nest Wifi points, and now have good service in every room, particularly important because we also have...

    Gronk announces his retirement

    My favorite Gronk video is still the one where he's a giant in 1st grade catching all the candy out of the piñata with his huge hands. It was a joy to watch him play, and I'll echo that I'm glad he's getting out young. That said, this is still amusing...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    A future question, perhaps: What is stopping something from YouTube TV from letting people pick whatever location they want for viewing, regardless of the location they're in? For example, maybe one day I want to watch the Boston channels, then I want to watch the local news in San Francisco...

    Game systems

    Yeah I agree this would make more sense in the games forum, but I have two boys, 6 and 8 years old, and there's no question that the right choice is the Switch. Just a wide variety of games, many downloadable, that are perfect for the age range. Happy to provide many suggestions if you head in...

    Digitizing old VHS Tapes

    I've been using the Elgato Video Capture wire. Good quality. Took me a little while to figure it out but it converts well. I'm copying over old family videos and just the ones I actually want to save. I also got Maxell VCR Head Cleaner (Wet Type). That helped a lot with the VCR - I ordered...

    NBA Finals Gamethread or how the NBA has more downtime than Game Of Thrones

    I feel like the lady walking up the stairs is a key player in the fight. Was the dude who knocks down two dudes protecting her? I'm looking forward to more on this as it unfolds.

    Now Bill Belichick to Narrate a WWII Documentary

    I can't believe he's willing to discuss WWII at all, he should be focused on the next matchup, WWIII

    Should I get an iPad Pro as a laptop replacement?

    One other note - whenever I don't have WiFi I just connect the Pro to my iPhone's network (which is very simple and wireless) and it's perfect.

    Should I get an iPad Pro as a laptop replacement?

    I use an iPad Pro for work. It's probably 80% as efficient as my MacBook Pro, and that's with about six months of getting used to it (and already having several iOS devices, so already being totally comfortable in that environment). Having something like office for mac is a must and I would...

    Is this the help desk for people who woke up to order the 7 and can't fall back asleep?

    Downloading a video that is fragmented

    Thank you.  I figured out something similar late last night with the screencast-o-matic plug in.  Like Quicktime it seems to use the microphone to record the audio coming out of the speakers, which leads to odd sound quality.  But that will do if that's the best solution, I'm glad to have a...

    A Boston Bid for Olympic Games 2024
