If it is empty, a Slingbox would work. It controls the cable box on the end, which would mean if you were using it at home, anyone viewing it at the condo would be watching what you had on. That does require a pretty robust internet connection, as you would most likely be uploading HD video to strea...

If you Charter, you should be able to login and watch it via the WatchESPN app, online or through an Apple TV, Roku, etc.
That is at least how I understand their FAQs
A sling box would be also be good for you to use to watc...

[quote]To me people are going to choose uber every time, even if they are being slightly taken advantage of in price.
Knowing part of the way this company operates, I'd imagine that surge pricing is based completely on a computer model/algorithm of supply and demand and not necessarily ...

[quote]I've seen it at 1.5X and 2.5X and 3.5X the cost. If demand is super crazy, it may be more
Thats the point in the supply vs demand thing. If rates rise to 2.5X, that entices more drivers out to the road, and brings the rates back down. I am not sure yet how fast that process wor...

As some may know, I have been driving for Uber, and it has been well received by all of the passengers I have picked up (Shameless plug, code IDOTY gets you $20 free, if you have never used it).
On Wednesday, they are going to start surge pricing in our area. This should really help to bring the...

It's almost like a rehash of the USB/FireWire fight from 1999.
It's pretty much a comparable tech to Lightning cables right? Maybe these smaller USB ports will result in even thinner MacBook Airs. ...

Most android phones are cheap. There are a ton of people in developing countries buying cell phones. Since they can't afford $1000+ iPhones in those countries, they buy the cheap, shitty android phones. Most are literally a step above feature phones, and are not comparable to a Galaxy S4 or whateve...

I have done it in the past, and stopped recently. But i like to throw a bunch of different veggies in. I like lettuce, spinach, kale, celery and anything green. As long as you throw an apple in, it is actually pretty tasty.
carrot and celery juice is simple and amazing.

I doubt it, probably goes against Apple app policies. There are nanny programs that let you lock down the phone from viewing porn, calls, etc.

Training wheels actually hurt the sense of balance needed to properly ride a bike. It is better for them to use their feet to pedal along and then install the pedals back on the bike.
Similar to how arm floats screw up a kids ability to properly learn to swim. My wife taught swim lessons and she...

I always stop and check out the clearance/markdown sections they have set up. It is a really bad habit, I know where they all are located in almost every HD and Lowes in BTR. And of course, who doesn't need a dimmer in their foyer or a motion switch in their closet?

That would be awesome. Also, if you are looking to get rid of any of your old parts that are still useable, I'd be interested.
Thanks for the info.

My mom is and she loves it. She didn't really have a choice if she wanted to stick with her doctor. I don't think it would be a very good investment if you are younger and hardly ever need to see a doctor. But for people who are a little older, it is probably worth the extra cost. ...

You're right, wifi at the dock could be an issue. But there would be issues with a wireless speaker setup out there anyway. You could always run speaker wire or Ethernet to the dock underground, but I'd buy one or two of these, or something similar to boost the signal across the yard.
| Tech Board|| re: New House Audio Setup - TigerRob20 on 8/11/14 at 7:33 pm|
Yeah you could do exactly what you described. You wouldn't need a bridge as the connect device or a sonos speaker acts as a bridge. Keep in mind, that these are not outdoor speakers, so they can be some place where they could get wet.
Basically, the bridge that they sell connects via Ethernet to...

I could tell you I am surprised, but I really expect anything from cable/phone companies nowadays.

Sonos and Airport Express combination would work, if you want to shell out some cash.
