Re: Surprising programming change upcoming to WGN America; 3 hour national newscast to debut

I think the reason the 24/7 news outlets fill their schedules with so much bloat is because there simply isn't 24 hours of relevant news to report in a day. That and the fact that these operations have discovered profitability in catering to specific audiences with political commentary shows. Old-sc...

Re: Another Phone Scam

OK. So a glitch in a telephone can cause it to misdial a wrong number. But what are the chances that calls made on different telephones, with different phone companies, in different countries, calling to different numbers would all make the very same error and call the very same wrong number? A num...

Re: Another Phone Scam

I don't care what any of you say, this is a scam. I have ended up with that telephone answer when calling to various numbers, from different telephones, in different cities, in different countries. It can't be coincidence and it isn't a glitch with the buttons or with my finger. The scammers number...

Re: Verizon has now rolled out 5G in Detroit for the first time.

5G phones are crazy expensive right now. Until 5G is more widely available it's not really getting a 5G phone. From what I understand it's only in select markets right now. Honestly I feel rolling out 5G capable phones before the infrastructure is fully in place is a bit premature. The companies kn...

Re: Another Phone Scam

The REAL scam is how much phones cost. Hell, even a desktop computer or a laptop is cheaper than a phone. Seems something wrong with that. I don't know....I got my last smartphone for 40 bucks, brand new and without a contract. Then again, I don't go for marketing trends. I just want something that...

Re: How to fix CNN

I can't bring myself to watch any of these channels anymore. Despite the names, they're more entertainment channels than actual news channels. Despite his intentions, I think Ted Turner discovered early on that there just isn't enough relevant news to fill 24 hours a day. The 30-minute cycle formula...

Re: Another Phone Scam

TT, I never suggested it was human error, it think it is a phone issue. Some wireless phones cache the dialing digits. It you switched it to "pulse" mode dialing pulses would generated on the "base" end, not the transceiver. The redial function would remember all digits entered on the previous dial...

I think they should cut the lady some slack. It was an easy mistake any of us could have made. Just picked up the wrong pail.
My only question would be why there was a bucket of poo in the first place. Was the toilet one of the broken items the landlord was there to check on?

Re: Another Phone Scam

The fact that you hear extra tones after you dial the initial number on multiple phones in multiple locations with multiple carriers definitely suggests that the hack lies in the phone system of the agency or business you're calling. It would also mean you're not the not the only person experiencing...

Damn. So K-Love is on its way to Northern Michigan. Years ago, K-Love used to avoid markets that had incumbent Christian AC formats. Clearly, that is no longer the case! They recently invaded Atlanta (home to Salem's 104.7 The Fish) and Washington, D.C. (home to 91.9 WGTS), not to mention Seattle (...

Re: Old Holiday Tradition

I enjoyed a can of smoked oysters. Reminiscent of the spread my mom prepared for our Christmas Eve celebration when I was a kid. Shrimp cocktail was another treat reserved for the holidays. Gonna partake of that on New Year's Eve. Mom also filled the punch bowl with a mix of Hawaiian Punch, Vernors,...
