3D Television is an Inevitability

January 21st, 2016 by admin

2010 was the year of 3D movies. From Alice in Wonderland released in March to the year-end release of Gulliver’s Travels, with 23 3D movies in 2010 and many more coming in 2011, one thing is for sure 3D craze is not a temporary fad. 3D is of course not a new technology. It has a used in movies since 1950s but it was James Cameron’s “Avatar” that pushed 3D firmly into the mainstream once and for all. Now, is Charter Communications ready to bring 3-D to cable televisions at home?

The last year has seen the 3D revolution hitting the consumer electronics market. From 3D-enabled Blu-ray players to laptops, it seems there’s nothing left in the tech market that is left untouched by the magic wand of 3D. 3D is also being pushed as the next big thing by TV manufacturers. They’re hyping the shift from 2D to 3D as the biggest transition consumers have seen since TV went from black-and-white to color. The year 2010 saw the bigwigs in the TV manufacturing scenario bringing their 3D enabled TV sets into the market and also many TV networks venturing into the 3D channel arena.

Japanese cable channel BS11 had already ventured into 3D programming in 2008. Continue reading ’3D Television is an Inevitability’

How Hard is It to Put in a Shower

January 21st, 2016 by admin

We are not sure what are going to do yet, but we have started thinking about doing the bath over. In fact we were thinking about it from the moment we bought the house, but obviously it was not the top priority. We have lots of bills, but in a couple of months we are going to have my pick up truck paid off. I am not going to need a new truck for a few years, so we have thought about what to do with the money. I talked to the guy with shower doors in Union county NJ. It is called Glass Plus.

I Now Take Backups Seriously

January 21st, 2016 by admin

You would think that I would have learned the very first time when I lost over 10,000 digital photos and other important data when my home computer crashed. The truth is that I was being naive because it was a brand new computer that I had purchased only one month prior, so I assumed that I was safe. I also run a small business, and within only one week of the crash at home, my server at my business also crashed. It was just my luck, but it was also my own fault that I had no backup hosting service. In both situations I was trying to scrimp on what’s important, and I ended up paying a big price.

In the case of my home computer, I quickly called my network administrator, who is also my employee. Continue reading ‘I Now Take Backups Seriously’

Looking for a Place in Tampa

January 21st, 2016 by admin

I am having a pretty good time down here, but right now I am sort of living on a friend’s couch temporarily. That is not a long term solution, his girlfriend is being nice about it so far, but it is obvious that both of them would like for me to get my own place sooner rather than later. I took a ride down to check out a place called the sanctuaray at highland oaks apartments. It seems like a silly name in my opinion, but the apartments are pretty nice really. The problem is that they only have two and three bedroom places available and I need something with a one bedroom price. I am going to have to keep looking and I might have to do something on a short term basis. I also looked at one of those long term stay hotel type places.
