Watch Netflix or Hulu streaming Media on your TV

I am an avid movie nut-I got fed up paying exorbitant fees to the cable company for movies that are not only outdated but repeat far too often on premium Channels such as HBO, Stars.

Here is what I did to get the latest movies and also watch them instantly on my TV I hope this feature will be available on Palm Pre as an app


I went and got a Netflix subscription. Netflix is a DVD rental service- They are not an advertiser of mine but I do recommend there product highly

They have several plans the cheapest being $4.99 a month--1 DVD at-a-time Limit 2 DVDs per month up to $16.99 a month for 3 DVD s at-a-time and exchange DVD s as often as you like.

I opted for the 3 at a time plan since cable subscriptions were running me 2 and 3 times that amount per month. Now I have my pick of what to watch and when--

They also have a neat feature that I have used quite a bit. Watch Instantly- This feature allows you to watch a movie on your laptop instantly. They boast of over 12,000 titles.

There are other service's that have these downloads also and are quite good. Hulu and Amazon Video on Demand are two of these, there are others that you can search for on Google

You can watch these streaming media downloads from the comfort of your living room on your TV. This takes either an adapter box, Netflix sells one for $ 99-or a cheap do it yourself hookup.

Here is Netflix's ad for a set top box--

"Over 12,000 choices instantly to your TV. Instantly watch movies and TV episodes on your TV in as little as 30 seconds. All you need is a high-speed Internet connection and any Netflix ready device — a one-time purchase starting at $99. Watch as much as you want — watching instantly is included in your membership. You still get all your DVD s by mail, but now you'll also get movies & TV episodes streamed instantly to your TV."

You can also hook your computer up to your TV without buying a box but you have to know how to do it and what cables to buy.

I have been a fan of Kim Komando for quite a while-She has a radio show and computer and digital photography web site that is full of tips--She has one just on this subject--and will show you haw to set your PC up--

Until next time I am signing off and don't forget to visit Kim at this link--Kim Komando

A Golden Age for Cheapskates

In a Lousy Economy, People Dig a Bit Deeper to Turn Up Deals

Last fall, the Woodbine, Md., mother of three figured out a great way to get some: online giveaways. She has entered about 40 so far. She has won T-shirts, cleaning products, a small portable vacuum, olive oil, beef jerky and -- best of all -- a Nintendo DS on Web sites such as http://MeTime.com, http://TheMotherhood.com and http://5minutesformom.com.

"The lure of free stuff is quite appealing," she said. "I never considered myself a winner. I don't think I ever won bingo. My name was never drawn from a hat. However, I've been extraordinarily successful at the giveaways."

The recession has emboldened a certain kind of consumer: The mooch. With dwindling retirement savings, a higher cost of living and wobbly job market, they don't just want discounts on items they used to pay full price for without a second thought. They want freebi…

THE ANCIENT SHIP APPEARS AGAIN AT SHORT SANDS YORK BEACH MAINE

A RECENT NOR EASTER HIT THE NEW ENGLAND COAST AND AS THOUGHT THIS WRECK SURFACED AGAIN FROM ITS BURIED DEMISE--The skeleton only appears periodically - the last time was in 2013 - always after a significant coastal storm, and always attracting attention. Archaeological work conducted in 1980 indicated the wreck is a sloop of about Revolutionary War age. It is likely a “pinky,” a type of vessel with a high, narrow stern and square rigging easily maneuverable along the coast of Maine. Pinkies were popular as fishing and cargo vessels. The first sighting of the skeleton was in 1958, and then it has surfaced periodically right up to the present day - and usually after a good spring nor’easter. Word spread quickly about this sighting via social media, and people came over the weekend and on Monday as well. First, they had to navigate the seaweed- and rock-strewn streets of York Beach. They were also precluded from parking cars in most of the Ellis Park lot, which was buried under a layer …

CREATE YOUR OWN MOSAIC

I've always felt a special fascination for mosaics. From Roman tile compositions to current digital collages, I think they're an awesome artistic expression.
That's why I was so happy when I found Andreamosaic.
This tool enables you to create amazing mosaics from your digital pictures in a very easy way.
It requires having a large collection of photos to use as tiles, that's true. Fortunately the installation file already includes a pack of 500 sample photos that produce excellent results.
The program's interface is quite dull; in fact it's simply a gray window with too much text on it. But the mechanics are easy to understand so you'll be creating your own mosaics in no time!
Plus, the program includes a 20-page manual that explains everything thoroughly. Just remember that the more tiles you use, the longer it will take to generate the mosaic and the larger the final file will be.
