In fact, according to Josh, this Add-on streams from video.l.google.com instead of youtube.com. This makes ...

Since I switched over from Windows to Mac OS X, one of the more puzzling things was how to add desktop shortcuts.  This was real easy in Windows' Internet Explorer.  Just right-click your desktop and select "Create Shortcut".  On a Mac (FireFox, Chrome or Safari) this is not an option. I finally found the answer, and like most things on the Mac, it's easier ...

If you are a TiVo user and have a Mac, you are probably using Roxio Toast 8 Titanium. This is probably because there are no other solutions out there to transfer programs from your networked TiVo boxes to your Mac. It's great software, but upon upgrading to the latest version of Toast 8.0.3, I encountered a problem. The "TiVo Transfer" option was still on the ...

Went shootin’, y’all

One thing I've always wanted to do was to shoot a real gun. I never had the opportunity until today. Since my brother-in-law, Kyle, was in town for Christmas, he brought his guns that he inherited from his Dad when he passed. He offered to take me shooting, and I didn't turn him down!

Verizon Wireless reps are fraudulent liars

This past July when I purchased my iPhone I had the choice of canceling my Verizon Wireless contract which expired this month, or continue it. After reviewing the cost differences, it was about the same cost to keep the plan active until December 2007 instead of paying the cancellation fee. In order to do this, however, I had to merge my phone in with my wife's ...
