Cox Data Usage Notification‏

So you recently got an email from Cox stating you went over the allocated amount of data on your account. So what do you do? Do nothing, it's just a bluff email trying to get you to upgrade your account, or better still purchase their crappy security suite. Cox hates the fact that people use their Internet service to watch Netflix and other streaming services that are far better than their own TV and streaming services. Here is a sample of the letter which at thi...

Since the release of the Google search engine back in the late 90’s I have slowly become what might be diagnosed as mild to severe retardation, I have lost my intellectual and financial independence. Let me explain if you don’t know where I am going with this. I used to know how to Speell Wordz: Seriously Google search engine has made me so slack when it comes to finding stuff of the web, I don’t have to know how to spell anything correctly, or even close it know...

Skype on WP8 without a Microsoft account.

by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 08/15/2014 - 13:37

Earlier this year Microsoft made the decision that Skype for Windows Phone 8 would no longer allow login using a Skype user name, forcing people to have either a Microsoft account or basically not use Skype.

So what is wrong with that right? Well some of us simply do not want to have a Microsoft account and want to sign-in to Skype the same way we have for nearly 10 years. Other platforms don’t have this restriction that Microsoft created, Only Windows Mobile.

Apple filed a patent for the iWatch back in July 2011, and it has been finally granted today. Looking at the design it already looks like a lot of Android smart watches that are on the market today. It may be a case of too little too late for Apple with a shift in popularity already moving to alternatives. Sure Apple makes great products, MacBook etc.. but popularity was bound to die over time nothing can be popular forever. Since there are watches that are alre...
