Cricket Wireless $50 Rate Plan Now Includes 8 GB of High Speed Data Access

October 29, 2016

I can attest to the Cricket Wireless service (which is affiliated with AT&T) as being a great alternative (low cost) service. This past week Cricket Wireless sweetened the pot even more by announcing that their $50 rate plan now includes 8 GB of High Speed Data. If you are an existing customer of the $50 rate plan, as I am, you can take advantage of the new feature by visiting your nearest Cricket Wireless branded store or cricketwireless.com, through your MyCricket app, or by calling Cricket Customer Care…  READ MORE.  I was able to bump up to 8 GB from 5 GB by visiting their website and simply changing my existing 5 GB plan to the new 8 GB plan. 

Also, I encourage you to read article I posted about Cricket Wireless and the LG Stylo 2 Smartphone… CLICK HERE.  Cricket Wireless is able to keep the costs down by throttling down data speeds; which, from my findings has no noticeable impact on web browing, watching videos, etc… The service uses AT&T towers which means you have service just about everywhere. I have been very impressed with the service…

Geek Squeaks #2015-4 @ What’s On My PC (Featuring My Take On Windows 10 and MORE…)

July 31, 2015

My Take On Windows 10 – I intentionally did not test or try any of the Windows 10 insider beta (test) versions, prior to the public release. I wanted to see what my first impression would be.

My first impression is this — The Windows 10 upgrade installation on my Windows 7 based notebook computer (older Toshiba) took approximately 45 minutes. During the install it booted 3 times and during each time a screen appeared with a circle in the middle of the screen indicating at what point the installation was at. It was a straight forward and nothing fancy installation (which is the way it should be…).

After the install was completed I was taken straight to the desktop and there it was; the new Start Menu. Folks, in comparison to Windows 8; Windows 10 is like a hybrid between Windows 7 and Windows 8. There are some changes, but they are changes for the bettter. I was up and running and navigating around with no issue. This old Toshiba was as if a breath of fresh air had been blown into it. I can’t wait to the complete the installation on my main desktop computer. My final take on this is, if you have opportunity to upgrade to Windows 10, I recommend that you do it.

Microsoft Windows 10

Do This If You Can’t Wait For Your Windows 10 Upgrade – If you are patiently waiting for your upgrade notification (which could take days and even weeks); there is another option. It is the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool.  I am an impatient old geek; therefore, I am using this tool to perform my upgrade. MAKE SURE you read the next paragraph to learn what to expect if you do use the Media Creation Tool.

Using the Media Creation Tool To Upgrade Your Computer From Windows 7 to Windows 10 – I am most certain that these same steps will work to upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, as well. Addictive Tips has posted an article that gives a Step By Step Upgrade Process From Windows 7 To Windows 10 …

#1 Best Seller – Basic Brand Name All-In-One Computer At A Good Price Point

December 27, 2014

Lenovo, in my opinion, makes one of the best computers out there right now. If you are looking for a computer, at the basic level of computing (check email, internet surfing,YouTube, Facebook, office suite, etc.), then you will not go wrong with the Lenovo C260 19.5-Inch All-in-One Desktop. This computer is currently a #1 Best Seller at Amazon and is currently carrying good customer reviews.

Lenovo C260 19.5-Inch All-in-One Desktop
Features:
  • 19.5” HD+ display (1600 x 900)
  • Space-saving all-in-one design
  • Front-facing stereo speakers
  • Integrated DVD RW
  • USB AccuType keyboard
  • 720p HD webcam
  • Windows 8.1 with Bing
  • Lenovo Rescue System – a simple and quick way to backup and restore your data
  • Lenovo Assistant
Space-saving Design

The 19.5″ display takes surprisingly little space on your desk, counter, or entertainment center. The unit itself is less than 2” deep, with clutter-free cable management. Everything tucks away neatly when nobody’s using the C260, even though those times will probably be rare.

Full Multimedia Experience

Integrated graphics support, an integrated DVD reader/writer, stereo speakers, and HDMI output offer crisp visuals and immersive sound for a fuller, more satisfying home entertainment experience.

AccuType Wireless Keyboard

Featuring a modern look and feel, the acclaimed AccuType keyboard has island-style, ergonomic keys that allow a more fluid, spacious, comfortable, and accurate typing experience than standard keyboard designs.

Up to 10 times faster than previous USB technologies, the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed enables you to move data quickly between your PC and other devices.

Ample Storage and Memory

With 500GB of HDD storage, you won’t have to worry about where to put all your data, videos, music, or photos.
