B1G, if true
I went to Best Buy today and asked them if I could use Windows Media Center's Web Guide with a Tv tuner to watch Michigan games, which would pretty much be making my pc a dvr. I figured this is a much cheaper alternative to the slingbox. Has anyone used a tv tuner or done this before? Was it difficult? The guy at GeekSquad said he didn't know how to do it and that it would take some time to figure out how to set it up, but looking online I found this:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-media-center/learn-more/record-tv/default.aspx , and it doesn't seem too difficult.
Alright, so, I've had this idea in mind for a business I would like to start for a LONG time. I'm only in the very beginning planning stages right now, as in, I haven't even gotten out a book to start investigating HOW to do it yet, but none the less, I am getting pretty serious about undertaking the idea and making it a reality. I intend to start small, and draw on the popularity of local products to build the business initially until I can grow it, that way my initial investment wouldn't need to be huge and I could avoid taking out massive, potentially life destroying business loans, and instead build the business on profit alone, mostly.
I am loath to reveal the nature of my planned business, for obvious reasons, but I will say that I intend to have several lines of product, and my product is not beer or alcohol of any sort. In deference to my insane Michigan fanhood, I would like to title/package one of the product lines in homage to Michigan football, as well as naming other lines for other local landmarks. I believe this would help me grow initially till the quality of the product took hold.
My issue is this. Due to my location just north of Toledo, offering only a Michigan Football themed product line would cost me business, and in fact, might turn many customers against all of my other product lines as well. So my question is this:
Is it better to offer a Michigan line and, begrudgingly, offer a tOSU line, including the royalties that would require paying to Cowtown College? Or is it better to forgo a Michigan line, and never once associate myself even distantly with anything OSU.
I was in the mood to put together a hype video of my own since the anticipation is killing me. Are there any good free programs out there I could use? I've used windows movie maker before for simple stuff, but the windows 7 version is extremely dumbed down.
I have been a loyal minion of yours for other 3 years now and would very much like to thank you for the delicious bread and wonderful circuses (circi?) you provide us. However, in order for us to fully conquer the world in your name, we need to procreate and, for those of us who already have, to begin the glorious indoctrination with clothing of our children in MGoClothing. I request that baby items be added to th mgostore.
My family is coming into town and when they come in they want to eat at restaurants that are unique to this area. Any ideas on good places to take them? We've done blue tractor, ABC, and Grizzly Peak already in past visits. Also, places like chophouse would be too expensive for our taste, as my family doesn't like to spend a lot and the dont like what they consider "fancy" so places like pacific rim would be out
Because his whole last type of holdout bullet point is about Tom Brady's contract situation, and how he thinks it will play out.
Now imagine you're Tom Brady. You left money on the table that your team rarely used (only splurging in 2007). You watched them repeatedly roll over high picks so "next year" would be the windfall instead of just cashing them in during your prime. Now you're 33 years old with a surgically repaired knee. You're playing for a paltry $6.5 million during an uncapped season -- repeat: an uncapped season -- during the same year that rookie Sam Bradford just signed for $50 million guaranteed. You thought for sure the Patriots would renegotiate that deal when the time came, and they even promised as much -- the old, "We need to stretch the signing bonus out for cap purposes and add an extra year, but don't worry, when we get there, we'll rip it up" routine -- only they're now pretending to have amnesia. And by the way, you won three Super Bowls and helped sell out their stadium for nine solid years.
What does he think Tom will do? You can read the end of the article. But it also contains the usual Simmons fun, with rips on everyone from Favre to LeBron.
