Be glad that you don’t live in a communist country. Although the US is not innocent when it comes to telling its people what they can/can’t buy… things are much, much, much better here than in Cuba. With that said, life just got a bit better in CastroLand. Raul Castro, Fidel’s baby brother, has just authorized the sale of computers and...

Before you get excited, make sure you have a Series3 TiVo HD box (and that it is networked). If you have the right box… you can now begin getting excited. Now you don’t have to leave the couch for anything, other than food and bathroom breaks, as YouTube is now on your TV. The service will be available “later this year”. ...

I like this product… solves a couple of problems in one tidy device. In many third world countries they have to travel quite a ways to get dirty water, then tote it back to their hut house to boil the water before using it.
