    DISH 2016 CES Press Event

    I hope this turns out to be true. Watching the Live stream they said is it would be a zero cost upgrade for qualified new accounts. The word "new" which Scott didn't type makes me wonder if existing customers can upgrade for free. Past history would make me think that Dish will not let...

    Post Your Bill

    My Bill went down by 2 cents, but only because of $11 in loyalty credits. Come August it will go up $10.98. It is tempting to be annoyed, but I still would not find a better deal anywhere for HD service and 2 great HD DVR's...

    Should I upgrade my Iphone 3g to 3GS?

    I thought about upgrading since I am still on the iPhone 2G. I could get the 32GB one for $299. But, the switch to the 3G data plan would raise my monthly bill by $15. So, the switch would cost me $299+$180+taxes for the first year. I was planning on upgrading, but for now I'll hold onto the...
