My @DirecTV Snapshot August 21st, 2015 @ 8:31 pm PST
Every month I get a worthless email from DirecTV touted as my “snapshot”. It’s just a marketing email with links to pay my bill! It would be really awesome, though, if they actually sent me a summary of my viewing habits for the month instead. “You watched twelve hours of American Ninja Warrior,” for example. […]

Los Angeles’ TimeWarner cable — previously known as Adelphia — is rotten. It is quite possibly the worst cable company in America. Two years ago they dropped the ESPN Gameplan, so there was no way for me to watch the Gators unless I hauled my butt over to Westwood to catch them at the UGA […]
