Cut the Cable, Keep Your Favorite Shows

Family time around the TV

As consumers, you’re probably looking at the best ways to not only shrink your monthly bills, but get the most flexibility over your entertainment. For many, this means looking at “cord-cutting” by replacing an expensive cable package with online streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and more.

Geek Squad Agent Woodworth and I spoke to the Chicago Tribune about things to know when considering cutting that cable cord.

Christmas Music Remix

SomaFM.com, one of my favorite streaming Internet radio sites, now has a new channel available called “Christmas Lounge“.

They describe the channel as “Chilled holiday grooves and classic winter lounge tracks. (Kid and Parent safe!)” and so far it’s been an interesting mix of remixed Christmas music with a dance and electronic feel, interspersed with old holiday music that I haven’t come across being played on the regular radio stations.
