Some Pros/Cons of Various Streaming Devices

Over the past couple of years, I have used several different devices to stream content to the televisions in my house. The whole purpose of this exercise was to determine which device would be the "standard" platform I would eventually use on all of my different displays. What I found is that each of these devices presents a list of pros and cons that make them unique in the experience they deliver to the consumer.

Windows Phone 7 Review (From An iPhone User)

So I had a little extra money lying around recently after doing some side projects and thought I would invest in a new phone. After reading a lot about Windows Phone 7 (and using some of the demo models at the AT&T store), I thought I would give it a try. I ended up buying a Samsung Focus off eBay which keeps my AT&T upgrade eligibility in tact just in case Windows Phone 7 is not for me. After spending about a week with the phone, I have to say that I'm pleasantly surprised at how well it works.

Recommended Video Game Podcasts

Ever since Apple added the podcast functionality to iTunes in 2005, I have been enthralled by the medium. For those of you that are not familiar with podcasts, they are basically radio shows that have been recorded for distribution on the Internet. Podcasts are great for people who have a long commute every morning or who just need a little background noise while they work. Below you will find a short list of some of my favorite video game related podcasts. I would encourage you to give them a listen as these individuals put a lot of hard work and effort into recording and producing their shows.

Games And Electronics Stuff For Sale

In order to raise money for some of my projects, I'm thinning out my some of my games, electronics and related items. I decided that instead of posting it up on eBay, I would let some of my friends have a crack at it first. All of these arcade parts and electronics are tested and working but are sold as is. Prices include shipping costs to the continental 48 states of the United States of America. Don't like a price? Make me an offer! Send the offers to
