Amazon Kindle Fire

Today, Amazon introduced the Kindle Fire tablet. I watched a few news reports and to summarize: The Kindle Fire is fast using a dual processor, it can run Android Apps but you gotta get them from Amazon (not a bad thing). One analyst says it is NOT an iPad killer since the Kindle Fire is a consumer of media not a producer of media / … Continue reading Amazon Kindle Fire

Logitech Harmony 650 Remote

Lori could not learn the process I had for watching a movie on the blu-ray or on VUDU.

I sent … Continue reading AT&T To Cap DSL Usage

Wal-Mart Buys VUDU

You may already know that I think the world of VUDU. Here is the most recent blog entry written after we received our very own VUDU box (yeah..that was before they were embedded in TV’s and Blu-Ray players…and way before Wal-Mart). I suppose you could say, I know how to pick ’em! Sure hope I am right about coworking and the Tracy Virtual Office 🙂 … Continue reading Wal-Mart Buys VUDU

  Rating:  5 WaterTowers (awesome integration of technologies in the home) What is VUDU? VUDU is a device that uses peer-to-peer video streaming to deliver high definition (or standard definition) movies to your TV via the Internet. As you may know from my previous posts on VUDU, I think it is one of the best technologies to come around in a long time.  It is reliable, relatively inexpensive, … Continue reading VUDU Integrates Technology
