Re: Amazon kindle paperwhite

I use my libraries to download most Kindle books. Only when a book is not available in any library in either Kindle or physical format do I buy Kindle books. Fewer than 5 per year. The library is great. ^ This. Very convenient downloading library books from the comfort of your home...or pretty much...

Re: Identity theft

Re: Frozen steaks ordered through the mail

+1 for Costco.

Currently Costco online has 100 off Japanese Wagyu (A4)
NY strip steaks. Still very pricey, but amazing.

Yes, I've replaced the ear pads several times on a couple older models. You can order from the Bose website or on Amazon.

Re: android auto or carplay?

Waze is now on Android Auto. That puts it ahead of carplay in my book. https://www.theverge.com/2017/7/26/16028250/waze-android-auto-maps-navigation-carplay This ^ Car Play uses Apple Maps and Android Auto uses Google. I've used both and Google is better with real time traffic re-routing. Voice rec...

Re: Netflix, Your Current Favorite Show

For something a bit different, here are two animated series which are entertaining and smartly written: 1. Archer 2. Bob's Burgers Agree with this. However, the same voice actor does the lead character for each show. I watched Bob's Burgers first and it took me something like 2 seasons to finally g...

Re: Looking for Mobile MP3 Player, What Do You Use? Why?

+1 for Google. I believe you could also accomplish this with iTunes or Amazon music. But, AFAIK, those services don't allow for the same number of uploads for free. Perhaps with the extra cost comes a bit more privacy. I've used Google music for several years and haven't encountered any obvious mark...

Re: Urgent 1st world problem [coffeemaker]

Sick of dealing with poorly made coffee makers out of China. Have decided I appreciate my coffee and good craftsmanship enough to warrant spending $300.00 on a Technivorm Moccamaster. However, before I go down today to pick it up, I would like to confirm (as most reviews do) that it is a superior c...
