Video Streaming Is The Best Gift To Give


2015 has been a roller coaster for cable companies. Cable companies continue to see a consistent decline in cable subscribers, but they’re also seeing huge increases in Internet high-speed subscribers. It’s safe to say that Netflix has changed the landscape of media consumption.

Review: Nuance’s Dragon Anywhere v1


Having access to speech recognition any where you go is a very powerful and productive tool to have. I’ve done several reviews about Dragon NaturallySpeaking, and about the latest release of Dragon Professional Individual v14. As a person who uses speech recognition a lot, I can truthfully say that speech recognition will boost your performance and productivity greatly. You don’t have to have a disability to use speech recognition, just understand that it’s a powerful tool that can be leveraged to get things done a lot faster.

A couple of weeks ago, Nuance released Dragon Professional Individual version 14, a continuing expansion of speech recognition software packages the Nuance offers. With Dragon Professional Individual, there was a pending app called Dragon Anywhere. Dragon Anywhere was going to give Dragon Professional Individual customers the ability to have their auto texts and custom words/dictionaries synchronized to the desktop so that dictation can be done anywhere without the loss of productivity or having to add redundant vocabulary words.

Dragon Anywhere is now available for android, and it’s worth a look if you’re a person on the go.

Comcast Is Combating Cord Cutters With ‘Data Caps’- Sorry; ‘Data Usage Plans’


Beware cord cutters, Comcast is on to you and they’ve already made adjustments to account for your sneakiness in the future. And if that’s not enough, Comcast continues their downward spiral towards the most hated company in America by blaming their customer base for their security problem; but that’s another story.

It wasn’t too many years ago that Comcast executives were saying that streaming content was just a fad and that cord cutters were not a threat to their business model. If a few years later, and a few hundred thousand less TV subscribers, Comcast has a different perspective on cord cutters.
