$99 each!

I guess it was Christmas before last, Google came out with the little round
Google thingies. They were something like $49. Then around Christmas
time on some sights such as Walmart, they were selling them for $29 PLUS
you got a $25 Walmart credit to use. I bought one and then bought a second.
You weren't really getting a direct credit to Walmart dot com. It was thru sort
of a Google portal store that did not offer everything that Walmart has. So with
one of my $25 credits I purchased toilet tissue and with the other I purchased
paper towels. It was actually a very good deal. In essence you could say I
gave $4 each for the google talk thingies.

I'm gonna go see what the actual name is.......

Top 10 contributor
705-89

Google Home Mini
I'm a top 10 contributor at Walmart dot com and have 705 positive feedback
for it and 89 negative feedback for my review of it.

Anyway, I like them for the price I paid. Primarily I kept one beside my bed
and I would ask it what time it is, set for it to wake me up, etc. I had one in
the kitchen too.

They only sent out that email about the $99 bulbs, a week ago or less. I know
I wouldn't buy it. It might be handy for someone but I am not sure who it would
be. My BS degree is Rehab and yep I can see how various gadgets can be helpful
for the disabled. For example, arthritis in the hands. Still, the price is higher than
many other products one can be for the disabled.

It's truly become to difficult to keep up with it all. I mean, you go out and spend
a thousand bucks on a tech item and one month later, they have a newer model.

It makes you want to be a Tom Hanks on an island in the Pacific. Put the lime in
the coconut. haha!

The real problem is.....people will buy it!

I've got a couple of those little round google talk things.
When I moved, I never bothered to get them out and plug them up.
They're around here some where. However, the other day I received
an email from google stating they now can turn your lights on and off.
All you gotta do is buy their light bulbs. Guess how much their light
bulbs are? I think it said they are $99.00. There is people that will
pay that. So dumb.

1. It's a good idea to read and if you have questions, to contact them. It would make
sense to have a larger amount to withdraw before you submit a withdraw.

2. The word 'retarded' in America is considered a vulgar word. I have a BS degree
in Rehabilitation and I for one, do not appreciate the use of that word. People with
mental disabilities do not appreciate the use of that word.

3. If you do not want to use Skrill as your payment option, don't use it.

Well I dunno about that. I have an HP printer that was less than $50 bucks, if memory serves me correct.
I've had it for several years and it has never given me a problem. I've used it a lot. I also get $10 bucks
(amazon gift code) a month from HP by simply participating (reply or answer or survey x 3 a month).

I will say I have never had an HP laptop so can't comment on that.

My washer I can open the lid at any time. It automatically stops when the lid is
open except for the start when water is running in.

I will relay that info to my sister but I don't think her's has a pause button on it.
Maybe it does and she doesn't know it. LOL.

Well I thought it was my Dell ChromeBook that I purchased Christmas before last,
that no longer charged. I plugged it up last night and it charges just fine.

It's probably another Dell laptop.

This thread has got me off my butt to go thru my office and do updates on my
electronics, to say the least.

Yep, my washer and dryer is very simplistic in comparison to those big machines today.
Mine is a standard top load washer and the side door dryer. My sister complains about
her washer because when her washer starts, she can't open it. It won't let her open it
until it is completely finished washing.

I have several electronics that I do need to plug in and make sure they are working. I
may some day buy a replacement battery for the dell, but I kind of doubt it. Wonder if
I should remove the dead battery?

Everyone in the back day would say DELL was fantastic and many people today love DELL.

I hate DELL. haha!

There is or at least was, guess it is still there, in Nashville, TN and I have gone by it before
traveling. Not too far from me.

Anyway, I have had multiple DELL's and have always had issues with them. I never had a
DELL last longer than 2 years. Most bellied up in a year.

Before DELL was Gateway. Those were popular in the back day. I had a Gateway before I
had a DELL. The Gateway laptop had a battery charge that lasted 40 minutes if I was lucky.
Of course, that was the days when batteries did not last very long. I was rather fond of the
Gateway and you know what, I think I still have it some where and it still works or worked.

Not too long ago I bought a small DELL laptop and did not use it. After about a year, I went
to turn it on and I guess the battery is dead. I tried charging it and it's deader than a door
nail.

So at one point I finally went with a MAC and it was a 27" desktop. Lasted probably close
to 6 years and I used it very heavily. That thing is so heavy and I have it in a closet wondering
if I should stomp on it, take it apart in pieces, or simply let it sit there until I am dead.

I bought a new MAC about 8 months ago but I did not buy the 27" and I am glad I didn't.
I think this smaller one is 22" and it's much easier to move around, takes up less space,
and I don't notice the difference when using it.

Many products are also about USE. How much you use it and how you use it. For some
people a product may last a long time and someone else with same product has nothing
but problems.

I don't know about where everyone else sits but in the USA, brand can be very important.
That is not to say new brands or off brands are not important.

Many companies and people, are not into the quality of their trade any more like they
used to be years ago. Many products are made cheaper today and many people do
not appreciate their job.

For example in the USA, there was a time when there manufacturing every where.
I can give almost first hand experience to that because I lived in the suburbs of
Chicago.... ChicagoLand. Much of my family, uncles, worked in the steel mills.
Companies such as Inland Steel, Northern Indiana Steel, etc. The memory stays
fresh in my mind, recalling the lunch box's and hard hats. People were very appreciative
of their jobs and glad to have work. Probably a good phrase for that time is the
'whistle while you work' because people were happy. People were proud of what
they made and they wanted to keep the good job they had. They made quality
items with quality parts.

Today, many people don't care. They don't even care if they have work. They think
they are entitled to everything. They don't care about quality. Many of the parts
products are made with today, are cheap, cheap plastics and cheap metals. Ever
see a screw break in half or a cast iron skillet break in half? Years ago, that would
be near an impossibility. Today, screws snap in to like toothpicks and cast iron will
break. Many USA companies became so greedy they went to other countries where
people were poor and would accept very low wages.

Quality seemingly has gone out the window.

BUT with that said, there are products today that are certainly better than yesteryears.

A newer product I hate is washing and dryer machines. I have a pair of Maytag washer/
dryer machines. They are simple and I have had them for several years. Well, counting
on my fingers, I have had them approximately 7 years. I dread the day they stop
working and hope they never will. Today it is difficult to find a new washer and dryer
that is not huge with gazillions of digital settings. That brings me to another issue....
too many gadgets on products today. Of course the more you put on a product, the
more possibility something will go wrong with it.

What the heck do people need huge washer/dryer machines with all the digital settings, for?

All I need is a knob that turns to cold, hot, warm, start, off. I don't want a monster
washer/dryer. LOL

If you are going to grab content off the internet and post it, you need to post
the credit. That is where or who wrote it. You need to realize that it is illegal
to take someone's content and use it without giving credit to who it belongs
to.

I don't think having a pet is an 'opportunity'.

A pet is family. It's a life time commitment. No matter how good or
how bad the pet may be, it is family.

No one can legitimately answer that question for you. If you are only
wanting the dog for mischief and entertainment, my answer would be
a very loud NO. Instead, allow someone else to have it, someone that
will give it love, trust, and care for it forever.

Once upon a time plasticspastic started streaming on netflix and turned to plastticspasic zombie
and then watched Black Mirror whilst streaming on Netflix through Google Chrome and got a
virus that turned him into a sea monkey.....

I googled it. Netflix is geared towards windows. They were doing an interactive
season, I think was the problem I had. I normally don't use windows. It may have
wanted me to download Microsoft. Not sure if that was the exact issue or not. I
just know it did not work so I did not watch it.

Netflix is really strange for apple users. When they first came out, there were times
I watched Netflix programs on my MAC. Now I can't. Also, to view trailers and search
online their website, is just about impossible using MAC/Safari.

Nooo I had not heard of 'Mom and Dad' but just watched the trailer on Amazon.
The movie is not available on Amazon, will check on Netflix.

Pricing for all these streaming options, depends on what you prefer.

I prefer Amazon because for me, it makes sense. I do order a lot from
Amazon so I am a prime member anyway. I think it has the best for
movies and shows, for me.

Hulu, I kind of like and have been a subscriber in the past but I found
I rarely watched it so I no longer have a paid account with them.

I joined Netflix when it first started. I did the 3 dvd's out at a time.
Eventually I went down to 1 dvd out at a time. I got tired of the dvd
option because for starters, once you watch all the new release movies
you want to see, it's almost difficult finding something to choose. I
have not went with the dvd option in years and pretty sure I won't
ever again.

There's really not much on Netflix that is worthy of me keeping a
subscription year round.

I have Roku so I do have a lot of channels but even so, I mainly use
Amazon.

I truly don't remember what the issue was with Black Mirror. I just
remember it said they were doing something different this season
and in order to watch it, you needed Microsoft or something. You
didn't get that? I thought my gosh, a lot of people are going to be
mad. You can google to see what the problem was/is. I don't recall.

Yeah, I am the same way with Walking Dead, I just watch it because I always have.
I watch it on Netflix so I am always a season behind.

Yep, I cancel Netflix from time to time. They tend to keep your information so it is
simply a matter of reactivating the account. They keep going up in price.

I read that Disney is beating Netflix prices and that people have been investing in
it like crazy. Some sort of Disney thing similar to Netflix I guess.

I finished watching the first season of Black Summer on Netflix. I liked it. People
become zombies when they die. They become zombies when they are bit but also
if they die from a car wreck or anything. There is one guy in it that I think played
in the Walking Dead at some point.

There's a silly Nic Cage movie on Netflix too. 'Between Worlds'. Almost hilarious
but not meant to be.

Maybe I will try Black Mirror again. I think they did some sort of digital puter
thingie and I couldn't get it the past season.

I watched several episodes of Netflix's new zombie series last night 'Black Summer'
and it's actually good. It has a lot of jump scenes.....scenes that make you jump.
The zombies can run very fast. There is various main characters but they are mostly
separate from each other. Not much conversation going on.
