What I like (and what I don’t) about the Roku Streaming Stick, HDMI version (review)

Netflukes: The Case for Canceling Netflix

I realized that I’ve actually come to see good content on Netflix as unusual. Garbage is the norm. I’ve actually coined a word for decent content I find on the service—Netflukes—the hidden gems that are worth watching.

DIRECTV Should Cease to Exist; It’s Abysmal

I abhor DIRECTV. This isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned that fact, either. Back in April of 2012 I wrote a post titled 3 Reasons DIRECTV is the Worst, Most Atrocious TV Service Ever. Given our history together, I wouldn’t exactly expect DIRECTV to go to any great lengths just to make a regular customer happy, but when you’ve got …
