Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu with Live TV? the Comparison Throwdown 2018

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSOne of my top ten videos that still gets watched several times a day, the throwdown of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon is still the most popular of my videos. What’s more amazing is that people still ask “Which one should I get”? Lots of changes since I first did this review, so I thought it was time to update it and see what these services have to offer!   What Platforms Can Access Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime? Before we go forward, let’s get this out of the way – All three services can be used on laptop, desktop, Roku, XBox One, PS4, Fire TV, and finally, Apple TV. You can get all three services on certain Smart TV systems, but keep in mind, this can change at any time depending on contractual agreements. The Good and Bad of Netflix Since...

Netflix, Amazon, or Hulu Plus – the Throwdown

This article has been updated! This week, Amazon mentioned they may be raising the yearly fee by up to $40. This would make the Amazon Prime service $120 a year, or about $10 a month. Netflix and Hulu Plus have their service for $8 a month. While Amazon offers more to their Prime service, is it worth keeping with the price increase. Better yet, if you only had $10 / month to spend on a service, which one would you buy? The Good and Bad of Netflix Netflix has a streaming service and a DVD rental service. They used to be one entity, but were split into two, with hopes to sell the DVD rental side. Once Qwikster fell apart, the company focused on the streaming — especially TV shows. Netflix is great for TV enthusiasts and kids. There are a ton of shows they can watch over...

Want a Viral Video? Get it Banned!

Want a Viral Video? Get it Banned!

In retrospect, Katy Perry’s “Hot and Cold” remake video with Elmo from Sessame Street that got banned was really not that questionable. I mean, we’ve pretty much allowed shorter skirts since the 1960’s. The song was reworded as a friendship, as opposed to sex. Yet this video – which really wasn’t that great and most likely forgettable in one week – became viral in only a couple days. Why? Because someone felt it was too racy and pulled it. So because of that, everybody has to see what is so bad about this video. It also became fodder for comedians and skit shows. Those like Saturday Night Live. Katy participated in a skit called “Bronx Beat”: one of those segments that I normally ignore because they always seem to be over the top and have little thought in them. But Katy comes out as Maureen Dichico, a teen who “Blossomed”...

Week in Tech History – 4-20-09 – Do You Yahoo?

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSBrought to you by Gotoassist – Support Smarter – 30 Day free trial http://www.gotoassist.com/techpodcasts Apr. 25th, 1996 was the day that Yahoo started putting ads on TV. They ran a spot on David Letterman, Saturday Night Live and episodes of Star Trek asking one question – Do you Yahoo? The successful ad campaign spawned many a version of that commercial. Ultimately they dropped the question and just had the Yodel “Yahoo!” on the commercials run. Other items of note: Windows XP64 and Windows server 2003 were released. Dell says they’ll put on XP after the June 30th cut off date and Gateway 2000 drops the ‘2000’. Lots more on the Quickcast.

During the “Weekend Update” he dressed up to look like an old man and sit there telling the Kids: “Back in my day…” He would always end the line with being bloody and beat up and “WEEEE LOVED IT!”. This week I was asked the question: Will the student now using a Mac be able to adapt to a PC environment in the workforce? I said Yes and went on with my college story: I used a MAC until 1995. After that, it was a PC until 2005 when I learned Mac environments for work. But even the Windows or Mac of 1998 is not the same of 2008. It really begs the question: What will the machines of 2018 look...

Death of an Apple Salesman – Bitstrips

Death of an Apple Salesman – Bitstrips

This week we poke fun at Bloomberg who apparently made a small mistake earlier. A report was “accidentally” released that Steve Jobs had passed. Steve Jobs health has been in the spotlight recently, so this article could have hit people hard. The report was retracted. It really begs the question: Do news wires pre-make stories for when things like this happen? It kinda reminds me of an older SNL skit where Dana Carvey played Tom Brokaw making possible news stories of Gerald Ford’s death. Anyway, lets hear from the (very much alive) CEO, Steve Jobs in this week’s Bitstrips:
