OK, video is up! Last week we #CutTheCord and saved a bunch of money! But just because we cut the cord, doesn't mean we have to live like a savage!

This week we are going to splurge a little by adding a #TiVO (http://amzn.to/1rx1cgk) to our system.

As a cord-cutter, with a Netflix and Amazon Prime account, TiVo allows me to view all my content in one place, without having to fumble-around for my phone or tablet or switch input modes on my television and stereo.

Their program search allows you to find content across all the services you subscribe to in one-shot, watch YouTube videos on your television, skip commercials and setup OnePasses that allow you to record exactly the shows you want.

You can even cast to it without a Chromecast! Watch the video to see why I love this little piece of tech! #TiVORoamio #OTA #HD

Here is the fastest speed my current ISP can provide. It's the fastest internet service I have ever had, but we can do better!

Hello #Gigapower installer. Today is the day I get Gigabit internet service. Let's see how close they can get me to the advertised speeds 1GB/1GB (Up/Down).

#RocketLeague is free to play for the next 24 hours and 40% Off. Pick up this fun game for only $11.99. Well worth it in my opinion.

Great game if you don't have a lot of time and need a 5-minute competitive gaming fix.

Next video edit is done! 2.62GB upload took 3.5 minutes. YouTube processing is taking about 20. ;) #GigabitFTW

I know this may come as no surprise to many of you, but now that my secret identity has been revealed I figured the rest of you should know. #IAmASuperHero

I noticed that my family primarily watches television programming from ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX. Everything else we get via Netflix and Amazon Prime, so in 2011 I #CutTheCord.

This allows me to save $1,488/year in unnecessary cable bills.

The over-the-air broadcast we receive is in High Definition Dolby Digital 5.1 surround and is of better quality then what is available through premium cable and satellite service.

The biggest barrier to cutting the cord is knowing what size antenna you need and where to place it. In this video I take you through that exact process so you can #DIY.

Everything they sell is delicious. It's not cheap, but good food never is. If you want an authentic French bakery experience without having to pay for a flight to France, don't miss La Farm. By far my favorite breakfast joint in the area.
