How to get free home phone service for life

That triple play deal your cable company keeps offering looks very enticing indeed, but the truth is that if you’re paying anything at all for home phone service, you’re crazy. It’s not just that every cell phone plan you can get includes unlimited nationwide calling, because having a more reliable landline option is never a bad idea. No, it’s because one simple purchase of the Ooma Telo gives you completely free home phone service over your existing Internet line for the rest of your life. More →

In other words, a whole lot of Beatles fans will have a very merry Christmas this year, and a bunch of rich people just got much, much richer. More →

$1 gets you a full year of unlimited cloud photo storage from Amazon

On Black Friday, we told you about a crazy deal Amazon was offering: one full year of unlimited cloud storage for just $5. That deal is still live if you haven’t already jumped on it, and it’s an amazing bargain compared to other cloud storage solutions out there. Of course, products like Amazon Cloud Drive are nothing new, and you might already have all of your files backed up to the cloud with services like Dropbox, OneDrive or iCloud.

If you don’t want to move all of your files over to Amazon but you do have a need to free up some space on your mobile devices that is currently occupied by photos, there’s another killer deal the retail giant is offering for Cyber Monday: $1 — that’s right, just a single dollar — gets you unlimited cloud photo storage for one full year.

Microsoft’s cloud storage offers just got worse – a lot worse

Microsoft’s cloud storage offers just got worse – a lot worse

It’s been just over a year since Microsoft announced that all Office 365 subscribers would have access to unlimited cloud storage, but now the company is yanking that offer away. Instead, Microsoft now says subscribers to Office 365 Home, Personal and University will get 1TB of cloud storage instead of the unlimited amount they were previously promised. More →

How To Block People In Gmail

New Gmail feature makes it easy to block annoying people – here’s how to use it

New Gmail feature makes it easy to block annoying people – here’s how to use it

Email filters have existed forever. In fact, a few particularly annoying PR flacks probably would have driven me insane years ago had it not been for the ability to block their persistent pitches for clients whose products aren’t even close to being a fit for BGR. I’m sure everyone can relate — there are just always going to be some people you never want to hear from again.

Google has supported filters just like every other email provider out there ever since Gmail first launched. Today, however, the company announced a new feature that makes it very easy to instantly block annoying senders in just a few quick clicks. More →

See Every Single Song Apple Plays on Beats 1

Apple Music is here. Some people love it. Some people think it’s doomed. Wherever you stand on matters, one thing is clear: Apple did a good job hitting most of the notes it needed to hit, and it also added a couple of unique features users can’t find elsewhere. One of them, of course, is Beats 1.

Beats 1 is Apple’s global radio station that streams around the clock. But what happens if you hear something you like and don’t catch it in time to see the name? More →

Acclaimed Music Industry Critic Lists 7 Reasons Apple Music Is Doomed to Fail

Bob Lefsetz is one of the most well-known and well-respected music industry critics in the business. He has worked with and consulted for major labels for years, and he pens a regular newsletter covering every aspect of the industry. With the launch of Apple Music earlier this week, Lefsetz has given the new service plenty of attention recently, as you might expect.

But while many people are bullish on Apple’s new streaming music service, Lefsetz says it looks doomed to fail. More →

Community-powered Internet TV Portal Offers 200,000 Channels of Streaming Content

By on July 3, 2015 at 10:00 AM.

Cord cutters, your prayers have been answered. Sort of.

Households no longer need pay TV packages to enjoy movies and TV shows at home, and cord cutting has reached new heights thanks to services like Netflix, which offers tens of thousands of movies and TV shows that are each just a few clicks away. Networks are also finally getting in on the action, as HBO, ESPN and others launch services that stream paid content without the need for a pay TV subscription.

Netflix, HBO Now and WatchESPN are all paid options, though. What if you want to stream content for free? Sure, you can steal content by streaming it illegally, but there are plenty of legal options out there as well. The key, however, is getting them all in one place, and now there’s a community-powered service that looks to do just that. More →

How To Stop Apple From Automatically Charging You When Your Free Apple Music Trial Ends

How To Stop Apple From Automatically Charging You When Your Free Apple Music Trial Ends

Apple Music launched today. It’s pretty great. Apple was late to the game when it comes to streaming, and its first crack at a streaming music offering didn’t really resonate. Now, however, iTunes Radio has been completely reimagined and mixed in with Beats to create Apple Music, and it covers all the bases.

The new service comes with a generous three-month free trial that provides more than enough time for you to decide whether or not you like the service. If the answer is no, however, you’re still going to get charged unless you follow our simple guide. More →

Apple Music First Look: Spotify, Who?

Apple Music First Look: Spotify, Who?

By on June 30, 2015 at 8:28 AM.

The music industry is in ruins. As we’ve gravitated over the last 10 years to purchasing, and now streaming, single songs as opposed to albums, record labels have taken a huge hit in revenue. But I actually still buy music. And I buy it on iTunes. I just like having something locally stored on my computers and devices so it’s always there. If you don’t have cell or Wi-Fi service, you still have your full music collection at your fingertips.

But over the past couple of years, my usage of streaming services has grown. First Pandora, then Spotify. I didn’t mess around with any of the junky ones with whatever horrible names you can think of. I did, however, sign up for a Beats Music subscription and I fell in love with two things about it: curated playlists from different brands and artists, and playlists for different activities. It made for an incredible listening, discovery and rediscovery experience.

That’s why I’m so excited about Apple Music, which will be launching soon after this article is published. More →

Now You Can Really Cut the Cord: Pirate TV Service Now Has 500 Free TV Channels

Now You Can Really Cut the Cord: Pirate TV Service Now Has 500 Free TV Channels

The biggest barrier for cord cutters today remains the same as it was a month ago and a year ago: live TV. Eliminating your standard pay TV subscription means relying on on-demand services such as Netflix and Hulu, which are both fantastic solutions for streaming TV shows and movies. But with only a few exceptions such as HBO Now and WatchESPN that are only available to a limited number of people who subscribe to certain services, cord cutters cannot watch most live broadcasts.

Now, however, there’s a pirate TV service that aims to change that — and as of Monday, it’s home to well over 500 channels of free streaming content. More →

During the WWDC 2015 keynote on Monday, Apple unveiled its long-awaited music streaming service, Apple Music. It wasn’t much of a surprise after weeks worth of leaks spoiled most of the service’s features, but it was still exciting to see the original king of digital music enter the latest (and most competitive) arena.
