A good company thats way better than Direc TV because of thier faster responding DVR's with bigger hardrives. Believe it or not, most, if not, all of thier newer recievers run on a modified Linux Kernel. And yes, they CAN randomly go into a kernel panic in the middle of an basket ball game & suddenly reboot. But this is very rare.
TV Announcer- Kobe takes the ball and goes for the shot...

**TV Screen goes black for 5 seconds**
Me- "WTF"
TV Screen- "Your reciever has just recovered from a fatal error, if you recieve this message again please contact Dish Network's customer care line, Now scanning for satellites"

Me- Damn you Dish Network!!!! (Well at least its better than the BSOD)

(Im just kidding Linux is a very stable OS with good features lol)

Is an Electronic Book Reader (E-Book). They have made 2 editions. The Kindle 1 & 2. The Kindle hardware devices use an electronic paper display and download content over Amazon Whispernet using the Sprint EVDO network. Kindle hardware devices can be used without a computer, and Whispernet is accessible without any fee.They also have an app for the iPhone & the iPod Touch called the 'Kindle for iPhone'. There has been alot of criticism over the Kindle stating that it should atleast try to compete with todays technology & PDA's & such. The Kindle has to depend on Sprints celular network which can have low signals at times. In my opinion I think that it should come with fun features on the side such as, Opera mini web browser, Flash support for live streaming, WiFi, If its on the Sprint network then it should be SMS enabled, With a Micro SD card slot. And maybe even a touch screen. Then maybe it'll be worth its price (Which is $359, I think that if it had these features that maybe it would go up to atleast $400 which still wouldnt be that bad. Why would you pay close to $400 dollars for something that only reads books?) Anyway the Amazon Kindle 1 & 2 runs on a standerdized Linux 2.6.10 Kernel.
I don't really have an example for the Amazon Kindle. Its alright but it would be more kick ass if it had more features.

A friggin incredible DVR that can record two shows at once & will auto-record shows that it thinks you will like! Im my opinion it created the whole 'pause live TV' feature & other cable providers caught on. Like I said you can Pause, rewind, fast foward & record live TV & store it on the system's hardrive. The newer boxes are the best since they come with WiFi & ethernet capabilities which enables you to be able to watch YouTube on your TV. They also run a modefied version of Linux & has the ability to go into a Kernel Panic which is what you don't want lol.
I love the TiVo & I also love Linux...

The iPhone is an internet-connected multimedia smartphone designed and marketed by Apple Inc. Its minimal hardware interface lacks a physical keyboard, so a virtual keyboard is rendered on the multi-touch screen instead. The iPhone functions as a camera phone (including text messaging and visual voicemail), a portable media player (equivalent to an iPod), and an Internet client (with email, web browsing, and local Wi-Fi connectivity). The first-generation phone hardware was quad-band GSM with EDGE; the second generation added UMTS with HSDPA.

Apple announced the iPhone on January 9, 2007, after months of rumors and speculation. The iPhone was introduced in the United States on June 29, 2007 before being marketed worldwide. Time magazine named it the "Invention of the Year" in 2007. Released July 11, 2008, the iPhone 3G supports faster 3G data speeds and assisted GPS. I think the iPhone is an alright phone but its not for me. It's virtual keyboard is not for heavy texter like me because you make constant typo's and the auto-spellcheck feature doesnt't help either. YouTube is slow and laggy. The internet (when not using WiFi) is exceptionally decent enough to check email or to browse websites when on the go. The iPod features are good even though I have experienced some annoying glitches with it but the updates fix it. The fact

that you can send MMS (Picture) text messages really sucks and the only way around it is to send the picture through the carriers email server to get it to the persons cellphone. (For example, if you want to send it to someone one thats using Verizon then you'd go to your pictures, Send it to an email and the email to send it to them would be

The built in E-Mail app is great and I havent had any problems with it. The glitches and hardware errors that I have even after updating are annoying suck as the "No SIM card inserted" hardware glitch that happens even when there is a SIM inserted, then when it does that I can call out or send text messages so I would have to reboot the phone to fix it. Also it would randomly hang up (Not drop a call, do a full hang up as if I clicked "End Call") and go back to the home screen and/or black out. Also it has a software glitch where it says "No Service" or it would just show no bars even though im in the open. The only way to fix that is also to reboot and when it came back on I would then magically get 3-4 bars while im still standing in the same spot I was in before. Its a good phone but I wouldn't recommend it for buisiness people or heavy texters. But the thing that erks me the most about the iPhone is the VERY annoying fanboys that know that its features arent the best but still try to defend it. If you don't believe me then look at these comments that was on my YouTube vid. Copy & Paste this into your browser.


(Im not trying to spam or advertise, im just trying to prove a point.)

Here's a list of phones that would do better then the iPhone:

-BlackBerry Bold
-BlackBerry Curve 8900

-8925 AT&T Tilt (HTC TyTn II)
-T-Mobile Wing
-Cingular 8125 (HTC Wizard)
-Verizon XV6800
-Cingular 8525
-HTC Touch Pro

-HTC Touch Pro2

Its better to order all of those phones unlocked so you can use them on any network that uses SIM.
I dont hate the iPhone, but its just not for me.
