Over the past couple of months we have talked about Cutting the Cable Cord. We have discussed streaming apps from your smart TV or your computer. We have discussed Over-The-Air broadcasting and antennas. Did I miss anything? YES! With most cable packages you can get a DVR, what do you do now? There are DVR’s without cable options.
There have been computer and phone scams since the dawn of technology. Groups of hackers and data thieves are calling individuals and businesses stating they are from Microsoft, McAfee, Symantec, IRS, FBI and other well-known companies. They state that there is a virus or other problem on your system and they will ask you to go to a website so that they can help you correct the problem. These type of scams are becoming more elaborate over the years. These BAD people prey on those of us who are protective enough about our technology to worry about our security being breached. Professional security companies like T.G. Consultants have been providing clients and blog followers with the information needed to combat these predators. But they are still getting through, planting viruses, malware and spyware. No user nor computer (PC or MAC based) or smartphone (Android or Apple) are immune.
When cable came out, viewers were in television watching bliss. There were so many new options available compared to what we were used to. We could sit mesmerized for hours and laugh, cry, get educated, learn about new travel destinations, watch animals in the wild….doing wild things; we were exposed to so many new adventures. We couldn’t get enough, we could choose between basic cable or the prime packages where we could binge watch television an entire weekend and never even shower or leave the house. We wanted more, more, more.
