Many people pay an extra $10 - $15 a month for a DVR to record TV shows and movies and view them later. Did you know you could be recording TV and cable shows directly to your computer for free?
Trying to decide between a Blackberry Curve and an Apple iPhone?
In this article I compare the features of a Blackberry Curve with an Apple iPhone.
Samsung's Galaxy mobile phones come with 16GB built-in device storage. If you want to start watching videos or storing songs though, you'll quickly run out of space. Here's how to add more memory - up to 64 GB.
With the iPhone's built-in iPod music player, you'd think it would be easy to select a music file and set it as your default ringtone, or as a custom ringtone for one of your contacts. But as you've probably already discovered, it doesn't work that way.

Question: I have a few DVD movies that I'd like to copy for backup purposes, and would also like to view them on my laptop when I go on business trips. The software that came with my laptop isn't able to do it though - it says the DVDs are copy-protected. Is there an easy way to do this?
I recently posted a write up about how I used my Motorola Razr as a bluetooth modem for my laptop, which let me surf the web on the way to work each morning. Well, sort of... it was extremely slow! Remember how slow 28.8k dialup modems used to be? This setup was even slower, and dropped the connection ever few minutes.
And to make matters worse, I discovered during the second week that Cingular doesn't actually allow their MediaNet plan to be used in this way. They officially require tethered internet traffic to use one of their "data plans", which costs $59.99 a month for unlimited internet usage.
After insisting on a full refund from AT&T (after all, it was on the advice of their sales rep that I purchased the MediaNet plan in the first place), I upgraded to their unlimited data plan and bought a Sierra Wireless AirCard 875u (USB Data Card with broadband speeds).
I'm riding the bus home as I write this, using the Aircard to connect my laptop to the internet. It's smoking fast!
I performed a speed test using http://www.speedtest.net, and registered about 1.8 Mbps download speeds (it's rated at up to 3 Mbps). That's faster than my company's T1 LAN connection, and I don't have to worry anymore about trying to find a wifi hotspot. It's always connected, wherever there's cell phone coverage.
Question: I would please like to know the reasoning behind the auto signature message when you send an email or message from a black berry, such as 'sent from my black berry'
Answer: In my opinion the automatic signature is a way to let your recipients know that you're typing the message on a tiny keyboard and might make some mistakes. It also can explain why your reply might be abbreviated, or shorter than a regular email reply, because it's a little harder to type on a small Qwerty keyboard than a regular, full-sized keyboard.
Some Blackberry services like AT&T also use it as an advertising tool, where the default email signature is "Sent via AT&T Blackberry". That kind of bugs me, because I'm the one paying for the service, yet they're benefiting from the advertising!
