Time Magazine Cost of Healthcare issue

I suggest that you read this article. It's rather lengthy but it just makes me so upset since it's happened to me a couple of times already where I had to pay too much for medical bills. Hopefully, you're on medicare or you have really good insurance that will cover you if a crisis happens.

iPhone 5

I was disappointed when AT&T changed it's policy not to offer an upgrade without additional fees when the iPhone5 came out. This is the first time they are enforcing this policy. I've had all the iPhone versions and they've always offered to upgrade free. I guess that I will just let my contract run it's course and switch to another carrier. Maybe it's time to look at an android phone for a change. I'll still keep my iPhone and use it as an iTouch.

Consumer Electronic Show 2013

I got a chance to attend CES in Las Vegas this year.  We stayed at the Rio Hotel. I took a shuttle from Rio to Bally's and the monorail to reach the venues. Lots of walking across 7 different sections. Each section is about the size of a football field. There were 3,000 vendors showing their stuff. Although you cannot buy anything, there were lots of give-aways and samples. There were also several shows and exhibits. You can barely cover everything in 3 days so you just have to keep going and spend time on items that interest you. They had 80 inch 4K OLED TV's and 110 inch LCD TV's. The huge wall display of LG was in 3D.  Lots of cars with the latest hi-tech gadgets on display.

Quick hardware reviews (see amazon links on the right):

Cisco-Linksys E3000 - setup was straight-forward and it gives me coverage in the entire house (primary reason I bought this since my Linksys Wireless-G was not able to provide me this coverage). Additionally, you can connect an external hard drive directly to the router for sharing. It also provides option for a guest id so that you don't need to give your network password to your visitors.

HDMI cables from Amazon - can't beat this price!

Jabra Bluetooth BT-530 - If you want to be able to listen to your video, music and even your apps on the iphone with a wireless headphone, this is it!

Pogoplug - Share your external HD on the network.

Roku HD player - Stream netflix, facebook, etc. to your TV wirelessly.

Slingbox HD - Watch your TV on your mobile device or pc from anywhere in the world.

Sony Speaker Dock Clock Radio with 7-inch LCD - works great with all iPhones including iPhone4. You are able to view any video podcast from your iPhone to the 7-inch LCD. You can also play all your music including Pandora. My only complaint is that everytime you want to watch a video, you need to change the settings on the unit. It would have been nice if it recognizes the video automatically similar to music.

 WD TV Live Plus HD - Connect your external HD to your TV to watch movies and view photos.
