Hi jmar

Finally replaced the batteries of the tv's remote control. After mistreating it for several weeks.

Two things I'm sick of hearing of: smart watches and music streaming services.

Everyone and their brother apparently has to offer one or both. I'm still waiting for a smart watch that looks like a watch. Not that I would buy it, haven't worn one in 20 years.

I don't even know where to start with music streaming services? Let alone satellite radio.

Rant over.

I agree. If they don't give me a significant reason to wear a smart watch, or a reason that it will benefit ME, then I don't care.

As with music streaming services...
I have been using pandora ever since I have heard about it. It's free. End of that.....

I mostly ignore stuff about music streaming services these days, really because I'm not in the United States and because of RIAA geo-restrictions. I'll sometimes stream music from Baidu, but will usually download, because I can't guarantee to have Internet access and I don't have unlimited wireless.

I've heard about satellite radio, but don't know much about it and never come across it. Apart from when there's radio stations on a satellite TV service.

Satellite radio is just like Pandora aside from being connected to a geostationary satellite over North America instead of an internet connection. They also have some exlusive content not available elsewhere like Nascar radio broadcast with the radio communication between the driver and his crew chief & spotter.

Satellite Radio is much like Satellite or cable TV, Mikedt. Expensive package of a lot of stuff you wouldn't want to listen to anyway... so you would end up paying all that money for maybe 2 or 3 channels you'd actually LISTEN to. We had a trial of satellite radio when we bought our SUV. No reason to renew it.

Actually Chief, when I commuted 60 miles each way for work, I had a subscription. I enjoy sports talk radio, so it was to be able to listen to a conversation continually without having to constantly find new stations. I think a lot of truckers subscribe as well, at least a lot of them called in when I used to listen.

So it's a dedicated service that you pay a bunch of money for and has a lot of stuff you might not care for, sounds just like cable or satellite TV in the UK.

I remember a dedicated music service in the UK called Digital Music Express in the early 90s. It came in via the cable TV connection, but had it's own dedicated box and was billed separately to the cable TV service. I tried it for about three months, found that I didn't listen to most of the channels, e.g. like who in the UK listens to Mariachi music? Plus the couple of channels I liked, kept on repeating the same songs every couple of days, and probably change the playlists every two weeks. Think there was about 30 channels that played music in different genres, no DJs or other non-music. Just that I remember two of the channels were this Mexican stuff.

They pulled the plug on the service a few months later. Maybe it was too far ahead of its time? This was about 1995 I think, I'd heard of the internet and didn't have access.

And that's the benefit of it, Pup. You can go ANYWHERE in the country and be under that satellite's footprint. My point wasn't that you couldn't travel anywhere and keep the same station: that's the one thing it's good at.

My point was this: you subscribed to how many channels? And actually listened to how many of them?

If there was a way to subscribe to JUST those 2 or 3 stations I'd actually listen to without having to pay for all the others, then sign me up! But it's just not making sense to me at the price point they want to charge for all of it.

Trouble with many of these smart/geek-watches, is that the things are far too bulky. Like can't fit them under a buttoned dress-shirt cuff, and so doesn't look very smart in a formal, professional or business setting.

Do tell! My Darling Bride is a movie/TV freak. We have 200+ channels on Dish, and I bet she watches 7 or 8 at most. I don't watch it at all unless it's 1 or 2 on occasion. Yet I have to pay for ALL THOSE CHANNELS. Plus a DVR premium for the privilege of skipping commercials!

Dropped cable a couple years ago. Roku + antenna + Netflix + Amazon (Prime) satisfies our needs just fine.

Edit: Whoah, these are incredible!

We HAVE Amazon Prime, Google TV, and I would get completely online EXCEPT for the Darling Bride.

We've had this 3DTV for over 2 years now, and the remote continues to baffle her. Bless her heart, I love her and all... but I seriously think there are some Amish folks out there who are more technologically inclined than her. Online movies? I'm the one who has to do all the surfing and selection, because she's just... I guess... incapable of grasping the concept of all these different inputs from various sources going to the same screen.

If I killed Dish and went completely online, there would be two things awaiting me the next day:

Divorce papers and a restraining order :P

Not sure why, but the bluetooth on my N7 finally decided to connect with my vehicle without having to reconnect 4 to 6 times until it stuck.

You know, I have never really had a craving for a smartwatch. Or a real need. But suddenly the Samsung Gear 2 really appeals to me on both a personal and a professional level. The Gear 2 comes out on April 11th, and I can definitely see myself sporting it.

What do YOU think?






EDIT: I guess as a disclaimer I should note that the Gear 2 doesn't run Android... therefore I can't anticipate that it'll have its own forum here. So I guess I'll just post here as another off-topic sort of thing.

Sounds like my Casio Pathfinder. Giant, ugly watch that I love so much.

I can tolerate listening to NFL games if I can't watch them for working in the field so it's perfect (mainly because I was using so much satnet streaming the games on Sunday Ticket). But I also love Howard Stern. And now they have the download service so if I miss a show I can download it I think its almost every show that comes on.

So it says I would need a special a la carte radio? Boy I hope the new car comes with that! If not, I guess I'm stuck with the $10/mo and suffer without my channels. Hmmm. Decisions, decisions...

Chief, I imagine that watch will be rather pricey, but at least you have a compatible phone.

So you got to buy a new radio(or car ) if you want the a la carte subscription, instead of the all or nothing ones? No software upgrade for your existing radio? Sounds a bit crummy, isn't it?

The joys of tech. Now with Apple and its "car play", if you like vehicle but don't want Apple then you gotta buy something else. Or can you tell them you don't want it?

I think they just block those channels on your radio. One of our cars came with XM and Danielle just continued the same package which didn't include the actual useful channels like NFL and Howard Stern.

Actually Bread, they're predicting a list price of $299. Considering what all it does, I don't think that's a bad deal at all. What do you think?

Bluetooth back to not working on N7. Google really needs to get their sh×t together. How long has 4.4.2 been out and they still have said nothing about it or fixed it.

The original Gear was $350? Either way, I wouldn't spend that much mostly considering how fast Samsung already dropped the first gen. and perhaps how soon the next one will come out (maybe with the Note 4?). My Pebble does everything I want a smartwatch to do and it's getting constant support despite being "so" old.

Morning y'all!

Picked up a VZW Moto G. Reception at the new job on AT&T is horrible and I have to give out my cell number a lot, so now I have a work cell...err...another toy!

It's kinda like having a Nexus 4 with a bad GPU...lol.

Have a great day!

Hey, the Moto G is my new BFF.
Doesn't dance circles around my G2 but still a nice little phone.
