After weeks of frustration, I finally figured out a solution for a bizarre problem involving OS X's Messages and Microsoft's OneDrive. The fix was a "d'oh!" moment, but one that hidden by complexity.

Aereo's CEO says its Houston operation is already turning a profit. But this may not last long: The New York-based startup that streams broadcast TV over the Internet faces a showdown in the U.S. Supreme Court that could decide its fate. The Chronicle got an exclusive look at the Houston facility.

Last month, when Aereo launched in Houston, I reviewed the controversial streaming TV service after using it for a couple of weeks in its beta period. I liked it a lot, and considered it a good alternative for those wishing to drop cable TV but still have the benefits of being able to record local broadcast channels.

I’ve been using Aereo regularly since then, and while I still like it, I’m starting to be more aware of its shortcomings. Aereo is still very much a work in progress, but if you’re going to rely on it, you’ll have to lower some of your expectations.

T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon all have new programs to let you upgrade your smartphone faster. They involve buying phones on installment plans, and skipping a contract for service plans. But AT&T and Verizon aren't dropping their plan rates for those with non-subsidized phones, which means you're paying the same inflated voice/date prices as those with contracts and hardware subsidies. T-Mobile restructured its pricing to do away with subsidies. 

I'd hope no one would fall for the game AT&T and Verizon are playing, but I'm afraid some will.

When I got my iPhone 5 back in September, I hustled to get a case on it ASAP. I wound up choosing a clear silicone one from Rocketfish, Best Buy's house brand. I loved its protective minimalism, but worried it, like most clear silicone products, would yellow.

It yellowed all right - and kept going, all the way to light, sickly greenish black. Yuck.

So, over the weekend, I replaced it.

I was tempted to say "...it's all downhill from there", but that's a little harsh. This is a good first step for Microsoft, but I'd advise waiting for version 2.0, or waiting for the Windows 8 Pro version, due in a few months.

Buttons

A special service of CircleCount.com is the following button.

The button shows the number of followers you have directly in a small button. You can add this button to your website, like the +1-Button of Google or the Like-Button of Facebook.






You can add this button directly in your website. For more information about the CircleCount Buttons and the description how to add them to another page click here.
