FiOS Quantum Internet is FAST

By on May 21, 2015 | 0 comments

Through the years, I’ve had nothing but great service from Verizon FiOS, which is the exact opposite of my time spent with Comcast. I couldn’t wait to switch from Comcast when FiOS became available in my area over 5 years ago now. Recently, I decided to switch to the 75/75 FiOS Quantum internet plan. In no way was my internet slow before when I had the 50/50 tier, but now it’s surprisingly fast. With most companies, you are lucky to get the rated speeds you pay for. With FiOS, at least in my area, that is not the case at all. They state you get speeds “up to 75/75″ but in reality, the speeds they give well surpass that. I have run various speed tests, as shown below, to give a general idea of the speed I get with my upgraded service: As you can see, I get above the rated speeds from servers in various locations. Once you start to have internet speeds in...

Karma Go, soon? I hope

By on May 18, 2015 | 0 comments

Needless to day at this point, people use the internet a lot. Thanks to the mass adoption of smart phones over recent years, people have gotten used to always being on the internet. We all use it for different things, Facebook, Twitter and email for example. You name it, and we probably use the internet in some way for it. Years ago, Karma released their first portable hot spot device. The idea was great; a small device that anything with wifi could connect to easily. It was smaller than most other hot spots, and featured pay as you go pricing unlike many of the other larger carriers. The main drawback of the original Karma was the platform it used. It was limited to 3G and many 4G devices were becoming popular. The available signal area was also fairly limited, but it worked great (for the most part). At the end of last year the Karma Go was announced. People with the original Karma...

Thanks, Electronic Arts

I seriously never thought I would say that, but EA has awoken the casual gamer in me again. Recently I decided to move my Xbox One out of my living room and into another location in my house, the Den (as it is labeled in my Sonos system). The den is where my computer is located as well as a 42″ TV. Obviously, the 55″ in the living room plus surround sound gives a greater overall experience, but I realized I didn’t necessarily want all of that. All i really need is my leather recliner (also in the den) and a nice HD TV. 10-15 years ago I was much more into gaming. I had all of the consoles, and was an avid PC gamer. (I’ll blame Unreal Tournament for that.) and since then my console playing has dwindled. I have an Xbox 360 in the closet which hasn’t been turned on for 4+ years, and my PS3 which I used to play fairly often hasn’t even been taken out of...

Almost 5 Years!

By on May 11, 2015 | 0 comments

Wow, where does time go? Obviously I have been neglecting my site, but that’s about to change. Through the years, I have always spent plenty of time online. If you look through the extremely outdated archive, you can see years ago I was fairly active… nearly 200 blog posts here. Life seems to have taken over the past few years and my time to “play” online just hasn’t been the same. I have posted everything from reviews, to photography related posts, and of course some rants are mixed in there too. I intend on doing more of the same. My site won’t necessarily be focused on any one thing, but about anything I think could be useful to others. So, to those of you who still see these posts, expect to see a lot more from me in the near future. And if this is your first visit to my site, welcome! I hope you stop back again soon once I have everything going...

Review: Nook Color

By on Nov 29, 2010 | 0 comments

I have been using the Nook Color for about a week now, and I have to say that it is a very well made device. As soon as you open the box and pull out the Nook Color you can feel how well built it is. The screen looks amazing, even at 1/4 brightness that it is set at by default. The size is perfect for reading books and magazines look great on the color screen, but i personally think it’s a little small for viewing them. Article view helps out a lot though, which I will talk about more later. On the initial startup you are greeted by a welcome video. The quality of the video is perfect. Seriously, I don’t really think it could look any better. Unfortunately, this seems to be the only video that I can get to even play on the device, but more about that later. It takes little time to setup. You just set up your WIFI, timezone and log into your account and that is about it. The...
