I have a Kindle Fire HD and use an app called text+. Works fine except that the message does not natively identify the sender – it doesn’t use your cell phone number, but a phone number assigned by the app vendor. You can create a signature – which can contain your name, or whatever.
If you watch a live show on Aereo, you have to watch the commercials too, just like live TV. If you DVR a show on Aereo, you can skip the commercials, just live cable DVR. I do not see where CBS suffers because I would choose to watch a show on Aereo rather than use an OTA antenna (the reason I would is that I live some 50 miles from NYC, and the reception on an OTA antenna is pretty poor).
Rather than threaten to move their station off of the air, they should arrange for Aereo to provide them was the number of users who watch their shows, and factor these numbers into the advertising rates.
I would be a lot more excited by this if it wasn’t for a recent problem.
For years, I have been using my Hotmail account to store all of my email for my Verizon.net accounts through my Outlook Office app. In the past, I used the Outlook Connector, but with the new Outlook 2013, this was no longer possible because Hotmail (now Outlook.com) accounts were redefined as Exchange ActiveSynch accounts in stead of POP3 accounts. It appeared that this would give me the ability to access all of my email from various devices if I forwarded all of my email to my MSN.com account. I felt that my email would be safer “in the cloud” then on my hard drive in any case.
Three weeks ago, I lost virtually all of my email that was stored on the Hotmail/Outlook.com server, with the exception of a few recent items in one or two folders. I posted the problem on Microsoft’s answers web site, but was told that I can only recover mail that I deleted in the past five days. I attempted to tell them that I had not deleted any of this email, either in Outlook 2013, or in the Outlook.com web site, but to no avail. They basically told me that the email was gone forever. I tried phoning Microsoft regarding this, and was told that since this was an Exchange account, I had to deal with the Professional help (probably for a $99.00 fee). I protested that this was my Hotmail account, but the person persisted in this, and offered to transfer me. However, when she tried to do this, I got a busy signal. At this point, I gave up.
So, I have not reverted to using my Verizon email accounts and local PST files to store all of my email, and backing up the PST files to the cloud (and not Microsoft either). I strongly advise people not to use this as a primary email account. I lost over six years worth of emails that are totally unrecoverable. Apparently, Microsoft does not have a failsafe backup for their email server (at least, for their consumer versions).
