Technology at home - do you trust it? - Jax-Tiger
My wife whispered to me the other day, "What do you want for dinner?". I said, "Chicken. And why are you whispering?". She said, "I think there are people listening to us." I replied, "That's crazy. Nobody is listening to us! I mean, why would anybody want to listen to us?" I laughed. My wife laughe...

re: Recommend a Printer - Jax-Tiger
[quote]It is an issue when you don't print much, they either dry up or the printer runs a bunch of clean cycles and wastes it.[/quote] True. I hadn't thought about that. [quote]I would also prefer to not support the business practice of removing features and wasting customers' time and mone...

re: Best wifi 6 tri-band mesh network? - Jax-Tiger
I just got a new Orbi system. I have the Wifi 6 RBK752 (AX4200) - It is on sale for $379 at Best Buy (regularly $449), and is very similar to the more expensive RBK852, which retails for $699. A couple of things: 1.) If your house is smallish, as I believe you said, the router may provide sol...

re: Recommend a Printer - Jax-Tiger
I have an HP printer that I've owned for 5 years, and it works like a champ. Prints fast, well, and wirelessly. I have 3 kids in college (they were in high school when I bought the thing) and we print quite a bit. Even with heavy usage, the cartridges lasted well over 6 months. Spending $100 f...

re: I just got some Soundcore headphones - Jax-Tiger
I got some Soundcore Liberty 2 earbuds and they were very good - I paid $70 for them. I liked them so much that when my daughter needed some, I got her some Soundcore Life P2 buds and paid $40 for them. The only difference that I can see in performance is that the Liberty 2s can be charged wireles...

re: Getting Cell Signal and Wifi To Detached Shop - Jax-Tiger
Are you able to move the router so that it is on the side of the house where your shop is? You could take your satellite and plug it in in the shop and see if the signal reaches. If not, you could try one of the newer mesh systems that have better range and see if it works. Take it back if it doe...

re: Is your kid going to a university that engages in Critical Race Theory propaganda? - Jax-Tiger
I have 1 kid at University of Oregon (don't even need to look that one up). I have one at Purdue University and it is not on the list. I live 6 blocks from Butler University, and was surprised to see it on the list, though. I have a third one at a community College. I don't think most comm...
