+SquareTrade has really dropped the ball and I'm making this a public post so that others don't get trapped in the same predicament, and others can be warned about their practices.  

Back in June/July,  my cousin had to submit a claim on her (previous gen) Nexus 7 tablet because she dropped it.  Of course it cracked the screen, and made the tablet pretty much unusable.  SquareTrade sent her a label for her to ship it in (after a HUGE debacle), and after a week or so, she got it back and started using it again.  A few days after she got it back, she noticed it died quickly on her (and that was after having it plugged in to charge all night).  Anyhow, she eventually realized that the tablet wasn't charging.  She told me about it, but (me) knowing she doesn't really know a lot about tech, I figured she just wasn't plugging it in good enough.  I told her to try swapping charging cables, etc. to see if that was the issue and it wasn't.  She said it would charge but she had to make sure it was plugged in a certain way and the cord had to be at this odd ?angle? for the tablet to recognize the current.  I'm guessing something was wrong with the charging port after they fixed it.  Any how, she said she was fine and that was okay as long as it was charging.  Typical of her... she's always meek and never wants to "stir the pot".  Anyhow, flash forward to a months ago, the device stopped charging all together.  I kept telling her to call them and let them know it was jacked up (because obviously someone at SquareTrade didn't test it to make sure it was FULLY functional before it left the repair depot), but our family has been a little preoccupied with 3 deaths between the original repair and now, and we've had more important things to deal with.  
So things have finally calmed down and we had time to call it in last night (after a great Thanksgiving and me being reminded of it again).  After speaking to an agent, we were told that the warranty was actually canceled because the original repairs cost more than the tablet did!  
Here's the first dropped ball... why weren't we notified the warranty had been maxed out and canceled?  Why is it still listed on their site as having a warranty covering it?  Had we known that, we would have never called.
Second dropped ball according to SquareTrade documentation, if the repair costs are more than what the warranty is worth, you're supposed to be cut a check.  This didn't happen... they instead obviously poorly repaired it and sent it back.    
The representative then told us to replace the screen and digitizer it cost them more than $220 dollars.  Basically more than what that tablet even worth at that time.  So SquareTrade started guilting her on the phone last night that they're actually out money on this warranty now.  Yes, GUILTING her like she should feel ashamed for getting them to repair it in the first place, and that it cost more than what the warranty was worth.  I finally had to speak up and tell them I knew it didn't cost THAT much to repair a digitizer and a screen.  After being told over and over that it did, I finally asked to speak to a supervisor.  Request denied.  Instead he started telling me that if we knew the tablet was having trouble, we should have reported it long before now (within 90 days of the original repair).  At this point, I'm fuming mad and she's crying.  I asked again for someone above him and told him how ridiculous this whole thing was, and instead, the representative went and talked to his manager and came back to the phone.  He told me that he got it approved, but I'd have to call back in during regular business hours to get it finalized.  SO I called back today.  
Third dropped ball After getting the run around by yet another agent and told the exact same thing we were told last night (about it maxing out the warranty and that we should have called before now to tell them about this charging issue), I asked to speak to another supervisor.  This time, I at least got one but she shot it down as well and repeated everything I had heard before.  *It's OUR fault and OUR problem now and SquareTrade is out money because of us*.  Tired of hearing this, I asked for someone above her.  She told me that wasn't necessary because she can do anything that her bosses could/would do.  
So I'm at my breaking point and I asked her to explain this warranty process to me because it obviously sounds like a scam.  Basically she said that if you buy a warranty (let's say to cover a $250 tablet), when you get it repaired, it subtracts from the warranty's value.  So if repairs cost $249, you have $1 worth of coverage left and can't get any more repairs on it.  So apparently your SquareTrade warranty is good for one repair and that's it.  After that, you're screwed (my words, not her's).  So I asked her to cancel all of MY warranties with them because this whole process has been absurd.  She starts to tell me how much money I'll be getting back and it's only around $70 for 4 warranties that I bought.  I figured that I might as well keep them so I can at least get ONE repair on each of them if anything were to ever happen BUT this has been utter chaos and I DREAD ever having to claim a warranty for my things.  
Look, all we're wanting is the tablet repaired.  We want the charging port fixed and then we can call it good.  It's the LEAST #SquareTrade  could do seeing they sent it back to us with a new problem that they caused.  It shouldn't matter how long it's been from when they "fixed" the screen.  DO THE RIGHT THING and repair it.  We're not asking for any money, just for a functional tablet, seeing it was charging BEFORE we sent it to you to get the screen fixed.  This will also be copied to Twitter at my public account: jeremybah just in case Google+ isn't monitored.

Wow Tracy... I wish I had known all this long ago.  We'll see how +SquareTrade handles this and see if they do the right thing.

Happy Father's Day to all the good Dads out there. It's easy to become a Father, but takes a real man to actually BE a Dad.

And if you're a Mom who had to assume both roles like mine, much props to you. Thank you for being both the stern disciplinarian and sensitive caregiver for all those years. I know it wasn't easy by yourself.

This will be awesome but will not last long.  SciFi shows are expensive to make and the ratings will not be big enough to go past 2 or 3 years.  I'm not saying the audience will not be big enough.  The problem is that the current rating system is flawed and doesn't count the many ways SciFi fans consume the product.  In many ways the rating system is geared to produce a desired result instead of data driven.  Why else would so many highly consumed shows get canceled.

Okay folks!  Found my VOIP replacement for my ObiHai device since Google is giving the ax to Google Voice integration with it in May 15th, 2014.  The service I have chosen after plenty of research is ObiVoice (no affiliation with ObiHai).

How do you sign up?  It's easy... simply go to http://www.obivoice.com/#_l_3w and click the blue box labeled 'See More'.  The page will expand down, and after viewing their video (which I attached below for your convenience), scroll to the bottom of the page and click the aqua 'Sign Up Free' link.   The sign up process is EXTREMELY simple and once complete, you'll be given your free trial.  It is absolutely free... no credit card required.  You'll get a certain amount of days/minutes to use the service before it will ask you to pay.  Yes... you do have to pay, BUT all of the features and ease of use make up for the cost. 

I went with the $49.99 a year plan also known as the Residential Unlimited Plus Plan.  With this plan, I get:
* unlimited minutes per month
* free local/nationwide/Canada calling
* visual voicemail transcription
* new voicemail message notifications to other numbers/emails
* outgoing caller ID spoofing (so I can make it look as if my GV number is calling)
* an Android app to make calls from my cell/tablet using my ObiVoice service (and it too looks like my GV number is calling)
* and 20 more features like E911 Calling, Call Blocking, Call Forwarding, Call Waiting, Call Detail Records, Caller ID w/ Name, Ring Scheduling, Fax, Fax to Email, Web Faxing, etc.  

The list could go on and on, seriously, this service isn't messing around.  They're serious about getting business, and they've earned mine.

The setup process with my ObiHai (Obi100) device was extremely easy.  I clicked a link presented to me after sign up and entered the IP address of the ObiHai device on my network.  Once I did that and clicked a button, it logged in to my ObiHai Obi100 device and made the switch to the ObiVoice service for me.  After two minutes, it was ready for use.  My next step was to log into Google Voice and add my new ObiVoice number as a forwarding number.  Once that was complete, I went back to ObiVoice and spoofed my outgoing caller ID. After that, I was DONE.

The Android app setup process was extremely simple too (and yes, they also have an app for Apple).  Here's how it works.  Once you set up the service, go to the Devices section and click the option for Mobile App.  At the top of the page you'll notice a huge QR code, and at the bottom of the page there's links to the Android Play/Apple App Stores.  Click the app option you want, and start the app download process.  Once the app is installed to your device, open it.  *On Android*, once the app is open, you'll notice at the bottom of the app, there's a QR code reader option.  Press that, then hold your device so that it can scan your computer monitor where the HUGE QR code is waiting.  You'll hear a beep and the app will program itself!!  Boom!  You're done.  Yes, it's that easy.

So there you have it.  That's all I had to do and I was finished.  If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!  

So, what are you waiting for?  Give it a shot today!   http://www.obivoice.com/#_l_3w

Nothing in life is free... there's no such thing as a free lunch.  Someone, somewhere pays for it.  ;)

The only reason I am doing VOIP is for my home phone aka landline.  Plus I'm not the only one using it, and they want a "real" phone instead of a cell.

Introduction
I'm just a guy trying to figure this whole life thing out... still haven't found the answer. 
Bragging rights
I ran a website that was visited by people from around the world, know lots about technology, have a very small group of close friends, my family means everything to me, and I hate Apple (so if you're the least bit offended by that, don't ask me to add you).

I took some 8mm & Super 8 movies to AV Media and had them convert them to digital MP4 format for my Mom's Mother's Day gift. Needless to say, Gretchen did an outstanding job and the movies looked fantastic! The prices are EXTREMELY reasonable as well! If you're looking for a place to convert your treasured memories, trust AV Media. They'll do it right and take great care of them!! Thank you Gretchen!

Beyond Cloud 9 is a fantastic place to get a massage if you live in the Springtown, Azle, or surrounding areas. Every time I go, I always try to get Darryl. Darryl does a great job and he's also good about paying attention to places you tell him you need worked out. Every time I leave, I feel so much more relaxed and comfortable. I would recommend this business to anyone who is in need of a great massage!

I needed a custom calendar made, and they were able to do it in no time at all and it looked fantastic. They were very professional and did a wonderful job. Will definitely use them again in the future!

The pizza and pastas are superb! The ingredients always taste fresh and I've never been unhappy with the quality or taste. I've never tried delivery because I don't mind driving into town to get it, so I can't refute what others have said. The staff, including Tony (the owner) have always been nice and treat me and my family like we're his long lost friends every time we go in.
