internet

Bell was charging me way too much for internet, so I looked around. These two web sites were useful: http://ispcompare.appspot.com/ (compares TekSavvy, eBox, and NCF) http://www.isparena.ca/en/ottawa (compares many others) I decided on 25 Mb/s DSL from eBox, because they are highly-rated, it's a goo...

I've tried the "tracert usa1.sunduk.tv" with two different ISPs and at two different locations and it's the same problem at Hop...

My parents pc is getting slow and they tasked me to replace it. Boxing day will probably have some options. But what cpu/ platform would you suggest? Their last pc was a core 2 quad with 2 gb of ram.

When Rogers cable went full digital a couple years back, it provided its cable customers with (optional) digital-to-analog TV adapters for free of charge. I was able to use these adapters to view all channels up-to channel 60'ish. A few days ago, as my bundle discount expires, I called in and negoti...

So... I hate Windows 10. I have it on my Dell Inspiron 13 7000, and I just hate it so much. My S.O. has a rMBP, and I enjoy using it SOOO much more. Therefore, I've been lately thinking of getting an MBP after I dump the Dell on kijiji. Is this a wise choice? Will I start suffering from "mac-gret" a...

As the title says, I'm looking for a deal on a desktop that can be used for video editing. I'm not looking for high end video editing, but something that would allow me to edit videos for youtube. So far, I'd like an intel i5/i7 newer generation with a video card that can handle 4K. I'm hoping there...

Can I easily treat a laptop like a desktop? Thanks Also, it's a pretty nice laptop ie i7, SSD, GTX 1060..... I do not need the portability. So I thought about selling it and getting a desktop...

I picked this TV up on Friday as per 2001’s Black Friday ads. It looked good in the store, but once I got home I started doing research and now I’m all twisted up. I started looking at rtings.com and am very confused. Is this a good price for this set ? I’d like this set to serve multiple purposes:c...

dell

I've got an old freebie low-profile desktop Dell optiplex (edit: sorry, not Inspiron) 760 for my son, and it's nice that it came with a video board - even an antiquated cheap one like a Radeon HD 3450. As is typical for these machines, it's running on an anemic little 255 Watt non-standard PSU so I ...

Hello folks, So last year I got my parents a sound bar for Christmas and they love it. Now they generally stream spotify from their cell phones to it when not watching TV.

I was looking at perhaps getting a ready made PC with a Hard Drive and wanted to replace the drive with my SSD. What I wanted to do is clone the entire hard drive with the OS that comes with the new PC and put it on my SSD. Hopefully the OS will detect the SSD correctly and not try to defrag it (exc...
