Top stories: Amazon (and rumor has it, UPS) is jumping into the delivery-by-drone game, Google and National Geographic pair up to offer historic map content (literally and figuratively), and two million Facebook and Google passwords were stolen. In other news, MIT creates a camera that can see in the dark, Netflix unveils it’s first animated series, Star Wars fans have to reasons to be excited, and I found two good tech gift idea lists for you.
The need for food is great and continues to grow while all too many continue to go hungry. To help make a difference, TDS recently made $1,000 contributions to several food pantries in southern Wisconsin—but the help doesn’t end there. Employees across the country are also stepping in to help in their own communities.
For many, understanding the differences between Internet networks can be confusing. There’s 3G, 4G, and at TDS we talk about 10G. Because the names are similar it seems like you might be comparing apples-to-apples. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. In fact, because the “G” means different things in both industries, it’s like comparing apples to oranges (maybe bananas).
In a previous blog, I explained some of the production roles on a movie. With this post, we will explore a few more. Today, let’s focus on some key film production positions you may not know a lot about: Production Assistant (or PA), Assistant Director (or AD), Script Supervisor, and Foley Artist.
It’s a big month for movie fans. Making their way to your television sets are a couple of the summer’s… more…
If you’ve been following along, Melynn, TDS’ employee and “Baking Goddess” is making 24 different kinds of holiday treats this year. By following her technique , you can too—and she’s even sharing some of her most popular recipes along the way. This week she’s giving you her recipes for Peanut Blossoms, Melting Moments, and Pretzel Turtles.
Not too long ago most people used the Internet for light web browsing and checking email. Internet service providers were able to accommodate this with their existing networks. Technology has rapidly advanced since those days and placed enormous demand on bandwidth and networks. In some ways, this situation is not unlike inviting extra guests to your Thanksgiving table…without buying a larger turkey. Let me explain.
Thanksgiving means many different things for many different people, but in our home it has always meant giving thanks for the blessings we have. This year, I am thankful for the 60 years I had with my mom and am reminded that she always thought of others before herself. I decided to start a new tradition of giving to others in honor of my mom and am committing to doing at least one random act of kindness per day. I’ve gathered a list of 60 kind and giving acts (that don’t cost a lot of money or even require much effort) that anyone can do any day, not just on Thanksgiving.
This year gamers have to decide who gets their dollars (unless your me and you just buy both—jealous?). Early adopters will have to pick between Sony’s $399 Playstation 4 and Microsoft’s $499 Xbox One. In this post and my next, I’m going to break down my first 48 hours with each to help you decide which system to rush out and buy. First up: the PS4.
As we told you last week, to make 20-30 holiday treats each year it takes quite a bit of planning. Last weekend, Melynn (TDS employee and “Cookie Queen”) got started and measured the ingredients for all her recipes in advance (and we’ve got the photos to prove it). Starting this weekend, Melynn kicks off her baking and she’s sharing two of her favorite recipes with you.
