Review – Comcast: Xfinity Streampix

Posted by

I really have no idea if it’s customer service agents lying to me to make a sale, or if Comcast is just feeding their operators the wrong information. Having worked for an answering service myself, it could go either way as to why every service agent I get tells me about products in the polar opposite manner of what is actually sold to me. The past few calls I had to place found these individuals trying to sell me their latest invention, a subscription based “on demand” service similar to Netflix called Xfinity Streampix. Well, I decided to cave since it sounded like the exact thing I’ve been looking for to help with this site and cut costs in the movie coverage department.

Originally, I thought about doing a blog about the most Metal of tacos since the Black Jack taco from Taco Bell, but I’m not going to even bother. Recently Taco Bell (or Kraft Foods, whoever is in charge of that decision) changed their packaging when it came to products in the grocery store. One of the latest items was a brand new dessert Chocolate Taco. The product calls for whipped cream and ice cream. I figured it would make a nice dessert for the dinner I was thinking about making for my fiancee and I.

In the summer of this year, my favorite speaker system gave up on me, and I was forced to seak out new ones. The one set I use is too bulky to travel around with, which left me seeking out a new set for casual listening while at other locations. This led to my picking up the 2.1 Powered Speaker System from Cyber Acoustics. Unfortunately, this choice was easily one of the worst that I have ever made.
