9 - Making Responsible Decisions
All this talk about saving money, owning physical media and finding free ways to stream has me thinking about making budget decisions. Sometimes we feel shame when we have to cut our budget so deep, but its okay. You're making the right decision.  In this short episode I discuss how I feel when I've made that decision before and how to still feel connected to the modern world.

Give me discs or give me death!
Following up from our conversations last week I take a look at the classic question: Physical or streaming? For me, which is a personal choice, its physical media.  In this episode I defend my position but still see why streaming is so popular. The key in all of it is everyone is allowed to make their own choice. I've gone extended periods without access to the internet, so owning physical copies of things is my preferred method. To each their own...

7 - The humble library
Everyone is  busy signing up for streaming services and buying ebooks they’ll never  read. You know who’s got your back? The library. You know who doesn’t  judge you? The library. You know where its cool to hang out on the  weekend with free wifi? The mother-freaking library. If  you haven’t been to the library in a few years, its time to go back.  Aside from magical tomes that make you imagine shit that’s not real  (books really are magic) they also have DVD’s and Blu-Rays. Plus, many  have partnered with services that offer streaming music and movies for  free. Of course, just about every library works with the Overdrive app  (which you can sideload to a $30 Amazon Fire tablet, the cheapest of  all devices) with will let you download ebooks and audiobooks.

6 - You Know its free, it has Alf
More and more places are giving away free TV shows and movies as an ad-supported service including IMDB, Roku, Pluto TV (who got recently acquired) and even Plex.  Today I'm taking a look at the high level view of these services and what it means to people without a bank account or credit card. I'm also extremely skeptical of Plex's decision to get into this game. Is there a conflict of interest adding commercial services and a way to host your maybe-illegal personal collection of DVD's?

5 - It's the whole point of cable
Hi pals, I am on the road today so I have a road show. Being on the road has me thinking about streaming services including the plethora of options, cost and of course the KonMari effect on owning versus streaming. All of that is coming up this week. Today I'm taking a deeper look at subscription fatigue. With every service having their own subscriptions and trying to watch everything, should you reconsider signing up for traditional cable?  Also, are you even a cord cutter? In my opinion, cable replacement services doesn't qualify you for the cord cutting club.

4 - Where are all the feature phones?
Last episode of the week and today we're looking at feature phones. Across the world there are many versions of feature phones but its mysteriously difficult to find one here in the US. There are lots of flip phones and even a few Android Go devices. Could a sub-$50 feature phone with Maps, Gmail, WhatsApp and Instagram be useful to people? I think there's a huge market segment that manufacturers are missing out on.

3 - Smarten up my dumb house
At CES there were a number of home assistant devices announced. What caught my eye were devices that adapted dumb devices and added smart assistants.  Today lets discuss how these adapters can make it easier for more people to adopt the tech, get comfortable with it and reduce the amount of obsolete products.  Read more Get more hot takes, deeper dives and inside information on tech and how it connects to humans. obscurednarration.com Blog RSS Get behind the scenes Twitter – @domcorriveau Instagram – @domcorriveau Reviews and more tech news on my YouTube https://www.youtube.com/dominiccorriveau Music “Werq”, “Basic Implosion”, “Meanwhile in Bavaria”, “Pixelland” Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Miami Vice Podcast Back in 1984, Miami Vice changed the TV landscape not only for the  decade, but for generations of police drama’s since.

2 - I love Stories and this is where to put them
Stories were all the rage in 2018. They showed up on all Facebook properties (take that Snapchat!), Skype (don't worry, they're gone now) and even YouTube.  Stories have a place on social media, they're just not being used in the right places. Today I make the case for Stories on Twitter and in group chats.

1 - Read your text messages, you animals
After more than a year away, I'm back with my first podcast episode. This show will air 4x/week (Mon. - Thurs.). To kick off the week lets talk about how many unread text messages y'all have. I toss around a few ideas why there are so many unread notifications on people's screens and try to get to the root of the problem.  Read more Get more hot takes, deeper dives and inside information on tech and how it connects to humans. obscurednarration.com Blog RSS Get behind the scenes Twitter – @domcorriveau Instagram – @domcorriveau Reviews and more tech news on my YouTube  https://www.youtube.com/dominiccorriveau Music “Werq”, “Basic Implosion”, “Meanwhile in Bavaria”, “Pixelland” Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Miami Vice Podcast Back in 1984, Miami Vice changed the TV landscape not only for the  decade, but for generations of police drama’s since.
