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!

I haven’t tried the Morning Show, but of the four I have tried, they range from spectacular to pretty bad, not quite awful. We started with See, which is a really engaging tale with truly fleshed out world-building. Excellent characters portrayed by outstanding actors make the show come alive. See, alone is worth the Read more

Go buy Mortal Kombat now!  Don’t think about it.  I have four of the Arcade1Up machines now, including the new Star Wars one, and if I could fit a fifth, I’d get Mortal Kombat in a heartbeat!

I would, but the situation starts with the person trying to recline, but getting bounced back because my knees are already planted in the back of his seat (I’m 6’3”).  Before I can ask kindly, I have an angry face looking back at me wondering why I’m blocking his recliner.  Not a good start. I once had one guy call Read more

This is one of the most brilliant ideas I have ever heard! Thank you so much! Others have suggested things like pressing your knees into the seat, but at 6’3”, my knees are pressed into the seat in front of me by default. Now, when the a$$hole in front of me decides to recline, I’ll just go Mr. Freeze on his a$$, Read more

The book, Doctor Sleep, was amazing. The Shining book was amazing as well, but the original movie was trash. Hopefully, this is a better outing than the original was. From your review, it sounds like it was done right this time.

The first time they showed the Exorcist on TV, I was terrified. I still remembered that as the scariest thing I had ever seen. I must have been about 9 or so. I didn’t remember any details, just that it had scared me. I just watched it again the other night, and it is so bland and un-frightening, it just shows the Read more

Mine was “installing” all night last night.  I heard of the issue, but I was afraid to stop the install for fear of causing the issue.  As of this morning, it still shows as “downloaded” but not installed.

This has been my problem with Apple Arcade from the start. I really wanted to support it (I am all-in on the Apple ecosystem, and I only buy premium games), but the whole service is filled with nothing but indie-trash. This list is a great example. The only game that looks remotely interesting is Spaceland, but I Read more

Does this mean I will FINALLY be able to get them to stop recommending Handmaiden’s Tale to me, no matter how many times I tell it I don’t want to see that?
