I'm not a big gadget but I've come across some pretty cool stuff during our moving preperations. First is the magic jack , basically you plug one end into your USB and the other end into a phone and waalaa you have a U.S. phone number and it only cost 20 bucks a year. I haven't plugged mine in, since we are sill in teh U.S. but some of my siblings have it and they don't seem to have any issues.

What really cool is the Slingbox , I've heard commercials for this and never thought it would work like they say. For the uninformed, a Slingbox is a device that one plugs into their cable at home (in my case, a frieds house) and plug the slingbox into the router and somehow I can watch my home TV on my computer. ANYWHERE..So I can come home from work on a sunday afternoon in Ariel, flip on the laptop and watch the Lions game, or whatever else is on Detroit television. I can pause, rewind or record up to an hour, and I have a TV Guide on it as well.

The picture is not crystal clear, still very watchable and will accomplish what I want it for.

So cool
