Like the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, I was totally helpless against my Tampa Bay Buccaneers aka my Orbi wifi gear. After getting a newer Orbi mesh system (RBR750) for better performance and coverage for the household, I wanted to continue using existing gear like my Orbi Voice (RBS40V). Unfortunately, the two systems […]
That was really odd. On Safari in Mac OS 11.1 Big Sur, YouTube videos were playing in fast forward with no audio. Using Chrome, the video playback was stuck, but the audio playback was fine. My simple fix was to restart my Mac. Googling this issue, it seems like fast forward playback of any videos […]
In these Rona times, the closures due to COVID continue to climb. While walking around Ala Moana, I noticed a few more shuttered storefronts. Banana Republic, amazingly, has been closed for some time. Abercrombie for Kids closed its doors. Forever 21 didn’t make it in 2021. Foot traffic at the mall does seem to be […]
In these COVID times when left is right, down is up, now is later, and face-to-face means online, who knew text chatting with a total stranger on a computer would provide better results than talking to real people in real life? That’s what happened with AT&T support chat who managed to make things right with […]
Oh hey, the Sam’s Club app (and desktop site) is reminding me that my membership is expiring in a fe days. Time to renew! Took another L!!!
Today has been a day full of “taking Ls.” Here’s a quick example. I need to order more address pouches from UPS for mailing labels, and this is what I get. Currently unavailable…
Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to all. Hope your holiday season is going as well at it can, and hope Santa blessed you with some goodies. If StockX were Santa, here’s what I would be getting under the Christmas tree. StockX picks for me What can I say other than “Nailed it!” Okay, maybe not… […]
By watching War Games on Netflix. Would you like to play a game?– WOPR Gotta love seeing the old school tech in action and the youth of Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy. I have to guess this 1983 movie was remastered since it looked decent on an HD television. The picture wasn’t pixelated or cropped […]
Stopped off at Ala Moana at 7am on Black Friday, and it was surprisingly empty, very empty. The lighting of the still-rising sun was nice. Walking through the mall was mellow but colorful. While I was there, I had to do the obligatory escalator check. Were they all in service? Most were. Stores were ready […]
Wait… Bed, Bath, and Beyond is still in Hawaii? I had thought they closed all their locations, but they have a Black Friday ad in the Star Advertiser. And yes, the Pearlridge/Aiea location formerly known as Circuit City is still home to the last Bed, Bath, and Beyond in the 808 state.
Is this thing working? Sadly due to COVID and all its social distancing restrictions, Black Friday shopping doesn’t feel like Black Friday shopping. Sure, online sales have already started earlier in the week and more specials are inbound, so maybe the frenetic craziness of BF shopping may actually happen. In any case, hope you had […]
It’s simply amazing how fast the new Sony Playstation 5 sells out. No matter the vendor, no matter the venue, and no matter what time of day – the PS5 vanishes seconds after releasing. Today, Walmart advertised that they would be restocking the PS5 for an early Black Friday. I refreshed the product page for […]
