Passwords, passwords, passwords…

April 1st, 2010 3 comments

So I’m sick of passwords. I’m sick of every single site I visit asking me to create a new password. And I’m definitely tired of the varying rules on what my login and password can be.

Some want your email, some want you to select a user name. Some passwords can be alphanumeric only, some must contain at least 8 characters, some don’t allow the use of ASCII symbols like ‘#’ and ‘&’.

Netflix 2.0 on Xbox LIVE

August 10th, 2009 4 comments

Netflix seems to be updating its interface on the new Xbox LIVE update coming tomorrow. Why I think this is significant is that it finally adds the ability to browse titles and add them to your queue sans PC… Currently, you have to leave the Xbox 360, pull up your desktop/laptop and add new titles to your queue. The Netflix interface on all current BD players, televisions and the Xbox 360 only allow you to watch the current queue. Read more…

CEDIA is Coming – Caller ID Rocks!

August 27th, 2008 1 comment

As always, the road to CEDIA is paved with phone calls. Lots of them.
