    Recommend me a laptop, v2018

    another bump for this thread as we near Shopping Hell Weekend. I need a new laptop for personal home use. Wife prefers Windows based, I'm open to the idea of a Chromebook. Basic internet usage and other simple stuff such as Word/Excel. We did cut the cable cord recently, so something I could...

    Game systems

    thanks for all the input, sounds like the Switch is the way to go. There are a couple kids on the street with systems, don't think too many of his friends have one as of now. I assume we could always get a second one when the kids get older and have their own interests.

    Game systems

    I need a little help (dopes: feel free to move to Blind Leading the Stupid) as I'm looking to purchase a gaming system for my kids this Christmas. Oldest is about to turn 8, I've got a son in the middle who is really into baseball and soccer, so sports games are a must. Looks like my best...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I am hitting the fall season for the first time as a YouTube TV user. How does it do recording when over runs are needed? I know I plug in what I want recorded but it doesn't look like I can extend a record. Will it pick up if football or something runs long and into the scheduled recording?

    New WiFi router or Mesh network

    So I need to improve the router situation in my house. It's approximately 2500 sq feet, 2 floors, router is on the first floor in the middle, but we get almost no service on the 2nd (had to add an extender to get even a weak signal). The current router is probably 7 years old, so not sure if a...

    4G Android phone megathread

    So I just got the Pixel 2 and tried charging at work by connecting my new USB (with the adapter) to my computer. Didn't work. Doing the research it seems like USB C doesn't always work with standard USB power connections? I travel a lot and rely on using USB to charge in hotels, cars, etc... Is...

    Red Sox bar The Riviera in NYC is closing

    oh man, the memories from that place. I will never forget game 7 vs the MFYs in 04 when the entire bar was singing God Bless America with Ronan Tynan with the Sox holding the lead. The whole song and release felt so cathartic after dealing with the pain in 03. It was a very fun group. Wish I...

    Live Sports Production Catch All

    Unfortunately for crews, this has become the norm in the NFL. There are a number of teams - Patriots and Eagles being the most difficult to deal with - that are at the line so fast that tv needs to be back and ready to play quicker than they would for others. It means missing opportunities to...

    4G Android phone megathread

    anybody with a Nexus get the 6.01 update? Came through last week and ever since then, my exchange email won't sync. Was working fine before the update, now...nada.

    4G Android phone megathread

    Question about an unlocked phone. I finally got a Nexus 6 with the plan to switch to Google Fi when my Sprint deal is up next month. I brought it to a Sprint store to get a sim card and was told they need to make sure they can put it in their stock. Does that just mean that they are clearing...

    4G Android phone megathread

    possibly stupid question - my Sprint contract is up in October and I was hoping to ride it out with my Galaxy 4 until then, but its been going downhill quickly.  I've been on the Google Fi waiting list about a month (still showing 4-8 weeks as my waiting period), but was thinking of purchasing a...

    ¡COLIN!

      You'll start to see more sub licenses, such as this one.  ESPN keeps the meat of whatever deals they sign, other networks pay smaller fees to piggyback that programming to offset some costs.

    4G Android phone megathread

    GRR....wish I checked into this thread before downloading Lollipop.  My S4 is getting assfucked by it.  The lag time trying to use Microsoft Exchange is infuriating, there's no reason a phone should have that kind of lag time these days.  Seriously debating dumping my Samsung very soon because...

    Inbox by Google

    I'm with canderson ... I tried and deleted it. Frankly I found it to be cumbersome, stuff bundled so I couldn't find it.  Looks like a lot of clutter with emails getting buried and becoming hard to find.  I like the layout of gmail and didn't see a need to change.  But maybe that's the crotchety...

    Sons of Peter McNeeley- Boxing Thread

    looks like Showtime has been fairly successful in killing streams.  Every time I find one of theirs, it gets shut down fairly quickly.  Looks like I'm stuck with the European telecast.  Anybody having luck getting the Showtime feed?

    4G Android phone megathread

    Anybody make the move from the Samsung Galaxy S2 to the S3 (or 4)?  I'm on my 4th S2, about to bring it back to Sprint for my 5th one (3 of them constantly crash, 1 had a burnt in Sprint logo, 1 wouldn't connect to data) and am gearing up to break my contract and move to Verizon (the Sprint...

    4G Android phone megathread

    just got the update Sunday, haven't had much time to really examine is. But when the update went through, a number of work emails got randomly sent. Today, many of my emails aren't appearing on the phone. Swype doesn't work with it. I can't replace the buttons on my home tray. I don't have...

    4G Android phone megathread

    can't believe how much the ICS update screwed up my phone. Then I went online and read that Sprint users who have the Galaxy S2 are all having issues, yet Sprint continues to push the update. Haven't had a problem with my provider in over 10 years, but this one is making me seriously consider...
