This is a public service announcement. As you can see, the visual styling of my blog is a train wreck. I’ve decided to stop paying what I consider extortion1 to WooThemes for the blog theme I’ve been using for years. As a result, with the latest update of WordPress, my blog has crashed and burned visually. I could pay … Continue reading
Short version: Unless you are wanting to play a few games on your TV, or unless you want to cut the cable cord, the new 1st gen TV is a total pass.
