Cord Cutting 01

December 13th, 2014 No comments

Started the process of cutting the cord from Comcast.

First step is to get the landline number ported over to a cellular one.

These guys seemed pretty cheap, and they’re on the Verizon Wireless network so my old phones will work.

I got the cheap plan of 100 minutes for $10 (plus .95 for taxes and fees). The only problem is the minutes expire after 3 months — and the landline port could take up to 45 days!?!

If it was a straight cellular-to-cellular port it would be 3 hours. That seems to be a big delta — I suspect some FCC regulation is the cause.

Good stuff from Guy Kawasaki on competence toward the bottom of this article.

The hummingbird/elephant thing means to consume a lot of information and freely spread it around. Essentially, be a valuable resource.

Sonos troubleshooting

February 4th, 2012 2 comments

Connecting my Android phone Sonos Controller to the Sonos systems seems to fail periodically.

The latest thing that worked was changing a setting on my Linksys E3000 wireless router.

Under the Wireless tab, Basic Wireless Settings, I switched it from “Wi-Fi Protected Setup™” to “Manual”.

Wireless setup change for Sonos

That seemed to allow the Sonos Controller connection process to work correctly.

Let’s see how long this connection lasts.
