I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. About time TWC works out live TV via tablet.  

    The only use I found for their app was to turn the channel on the cable box receiver while others were watching in another room.  Or even better, when I was in another state.

    1. Lol :D

      Live streaming would be so useful on my phone/tablet. I wish other cable providers would get on this!
