A completely digital broadcast of the regular shows that you been watching for years. It started off because of the high definition televisions are being sold.

Why care that ISPs want to increase their speeds?

I’m surprised that the service providers keep using this marketing ploy to lure customers and to some sort of speed competition. Everyone should know by now that you can only get information as fast as it can be sent. What’s more interesting about this is why would you increase the rate at which someone can …

Mozilla Thunderbird v13 gets large attachment handling

While others may be flocking to the web for their e-mail handling/management, Thunderbird is still my e-mail application of choice, and I still think having my emails local, where I can filter, reply and compose is better than having to deal with the web interfaces; which, for me, seems like they are trying to catch …

ISP bandwidth Caps are holding back the Cloud

I have covered this ground for years… ISP’s are such a disappointment. They started out okay, then they went to the sky with unlimited bandwidth for Internet access and then they laid the ‘smack down’ on their customers with the tiered service for Internet access. While the commercials ring in about how grea ‘the cloud’ …

ISP’s see Netflix as a curse and a God send

This past week an article hit Internet about Netflix being the largest single source of Internet traffic on the web. At the same time this article was posted, I could hear the ISPs of the world salivating. This was just the kind of information that they needed to make sure that they keep their customer …

Which is more popular? 3D TV or Internet Enabled TV

I’m not going to draw this out. 3D TV loses on this battle field. If you want to stop reading here, you can; but the simple fact is Internet TV can offer more to customers than 3D ever could. 3D to a standard TV is my comparison to a light bulb with glitter; it’s a …

Getting everything from your Internet connection…

hubq5fxq.jpg

I was reading through the article the other day about how Comcast had had a spike in consumer subscriptions into Internet broadband services.
