LOL, fine but 1) You have to deal with my mom… good luck! And 2) I get to keep my Jambox, cell phone and my ESPN banner

This was unexpected, I go to a Time Warner Store today to get a remote replaced and just for the hell of it asked if they had combo MTA/D3 cable modems yet, they lady said, yeah and asked if I wanted a UBee or an Arris. So I picked up an Arris TG852G combo unit. Woohoo, one less device and one less split in my cable line. Ive already replaced the four way splitter with the old three way. I certainly wasnt expecting that today.

My latest tech obsession is my Big Jambox from Jawbone. I got it on eBay last week, brand new, it was slightly cheaper than the $300 list price, I believe I paid $270, which is still overpriced IMO, but man this thing is great. Basically Ive been streaming my music collection along with Sirius XM from my tablet nonstop. Great range too. My only qualm is Beats Audio just released a competitor called the ‘Pill and in the few reviews Ive read, the Beats Pill produces better audio quality and is better at higher volumes than the Jawbone Jambox. Oh well.

I forgot about the rest of the house. Nothing really to write home about. In the living room we have a Sony Grand Wega 55 Rear Projection LCD HDTV circa 2007. All that is connected to that is the other Cisco 8642 DVR for TWC and a DirecTV HR24 HD DVR. That old computer setup on the chinsy desk to the right of my TV set up is the one my mother uses. I cannot trust her to have the computer outside of my direct supervision hence why it resides in my bedroom. Ever since the fifth time I found a note taped to the refrigerator door when I got home from work, when I worked night shift, saying ‘Computer and/or Printer does not work, I had to revoke her computer privileges. Now everything is password protected and requires me to be there to type it in. Just yesterday I discovered she has a Facebook account. Guess what website just got added to my list of blocked URLs at router level? I guess they dont call them Parental Controls for nothing.

For the future of our nation, we must unite and vote out the terrorist known as Hussein Obama. Come November 6 2012 we must remove the socialist pig out of office and get our country back on the RIGHT track.

Don't feel bad Tim...my new house has done the same thing...all I'm hearing right now is the sucking noise of my back pocket aka my wallet...
