Lower Decks was borderline unwatchable. It committed the cardinal sin of a comedy series, in that it was deeply unfunny. 9 out of 10 gags were cringe-worthy. Still, I stuck with it for some unknown reason, perhaps my Star Trek super-fandom, but I really can’t see making it back for a second season. Discovery, on the Read more

How do you get past the screen that tells you you cannot play Stadia on mobile Safari to log in?

Best online comment today!  Just because I use or don’t use something doesn’t mean that everyone else must use/not use that something.

I’m no fan of Google and their corporate policy of “Just Be Evil,” but I have been using Stadia from the beta and I’ve been pretty blown away by the service. I own four games there, and I’d get more but I do fear they will get bored with it and close the service. I appreciate the fact that I can have a MacBook Pro to Read more

Not really a big deal since Staduim never actually worked in the first place.  You follow precisely the setup instructions, and you’re rewarded with the exact same error when you access Stadia as you get in the stock Safari browser.

No question, Siri is a problem. I don’t have any Google devices (I hate Google over their privacy issues and censorship issues), and I am fully into the Apple ecosystem, so I don’t really have a choice. I have found Siri on the phone and watch to be pretty good, major improvements over what it once was. On the Read more

I really wanted to support Apple Arcade, so I tried the free trial, but its an awful lot of money for a service that has one good game (the hockey one) and one passable game (Lego Brawls).  The rest of the games are meh to awful, loads of indie crap.  I gave it up after the trial, and I haven’t seen them add anything Read more

And yet, unlike typical behavior at fake news CNN, Law Enforcement Today later updated their story with a correction after the FBI statement.

Excellent!  Now that they’ve taken down the false propaganda that the fires were caused by Antifa, will they also take down the false propaganda that they were caused by Global Warming?

The first season was outstanding, the second still really good, but the third season was unwatchable. It was so awful I was on the fence about trying the fourth season. I’m glad I did though, as that fourth season was worth it.  Not good enough to rinse out the taste of that third season, but still good.

They all beclowned themselves droning on about the nearly 200 cases of arson in Australia that have led to this disaster, but it is even worse that they still went on to do this even after Ricky Gervais pre-mocked them for doing just that!

Hopefully, all this attention will make the whole system better in general.  With all the zigbee lights in my house, at any given time, one of them will not work.  I am so tired of my HomePod telling me “sorry, your device is not responding.”

Apple is a huge company, and as such, it takes time to turn the ship around.  Isn’t it likely that the people who needed to know this report was out there simply weren’t aware of it right away?  Not great, but not terrible, and to be expected of any massive corporation.

Hey, they’re going for gold in the Woke Olympics, and the only answer is “not enough!”  Have your temper tantrum in private.

I think another factor in this is exhaustion. I used to be a hockey player and I fought a lot. In nearly every case, I would think a fight lasted 90 to 120 seconds, only to see the tape later and find it was less than 30 seconds. After seeing this consistently, I started talking to some of my opponents later, and they Read more

One of the other great trends is that of the PG-13 horror movies. Things like Quiet Place, Escape Room, and Happy Death Day are able to tell scary and suspenseful stories without buckets o blood. Not that there is a problem with gore (and there are plenty of excellent R-rated horror movies), just that all too many Read more

I had high hopes for this show, and season one was not bad, but season two lost my interest in the first episode.  I may go back to it if I have time, but there are so many better shows on and so few hours off to watch them.

I’m excited this is finally going forward!  I have had Sprint for 15 years, and they are great where I live, but non-existent where I work, which means roaming, which means slow data with caps...  T-Mobile has coverage where I work, so I’ll finally have full coverage 27/7!  Add to that, this merger being the only way Read more

It may be slower than an Apple TV, and it may not deliver as high a bitrate of 4K video, but at least you can get Apple TV+ on Roku too.

Have you watched ANY of the shows?!? There is no question the story about no NSFW shows was Fake News! Watch Jason Momoa slowly slice people’s heads off while the queen “prays.” Yeah, don’t think I’d watch that at work!  Dickinson is hardly not NSFW!  It is boring as all hell, but certainly not G rated!
