re: Who is doing the Free Windows 10 upgrade tomorrow? - ATL-TIGER-732
Win 10 file size is expected to be between 3GB and 4GB. It will take many hours for the average user with the average ISP download speed to download it non-stop, if not longer.

re: Trying to convince my in-laws they should get faster internet... - ATL-TIGER-732
Verify what speed they are paying for. If they are paying for a higher speed, then have the ISP come out and check the lines and modem. My sister in Baton Rouge complained that it took 10 minutes to log into her email. She was paying for 6 mbps. Her computer used to zip along pretty fast. I had h...

re: Geek Squad TV Calibration - ATL-TIGER-732
I agree with most of what you say. The Geeker explained why he set the tv settings the way he did. I would watch local news and The Tonight Show, shows set inside with controlled lighting, and I could see the subtle shadings of the clothing and the sets. It made sense to me. However, visi...

re: Geek Squad TV Calibration - ATL-TIGER-732
TVs on the showroom floor have the brightness and contrast set really high to get your attention. However, these settings will wash out details of the picture. You don't see the subtle changes in detail across the screen. Years ago, I paid $150 for the Best Buy calibration. Now, it costs $250. Th...
