Time Warner Cable, Inc. ( NYSE: TWC )My wife and I have found that we just do not go out to movie theaters as much as we used to. We really prefer to make a nice dinner at home and watch a movie or two. Popcorn at a theater cannot beat a homemade meal made by my wife. In the past, we often stopped in at local video stores to grab a video on the weekend, but that stopped when most video rental stores in our area closed down. Recently, we started looking into Time Warner Cable and another company in our area to see what was available.

Movies have always been a big deal in our home. When you have a hard day at work and life gets tough, it really is nice to sit with your spouse and enjoy a movie, smiles, laughter, etc. This means that whichever cable provider we decided to go through needed to have a great set of movie channels, and we also wanted a nice number of channels that would allow us to order movies whenever we wanted to.

We ended up getting a package deal that includes more than 200 channels through Time Warner This includes movie channels and plenty more movies and shows we could order at the touch of a button on our remote control. We previously had our phone and Internet service through another provider (with no cable), but we have now switched over and are enjoying paying everything on one bill.

My wife also enjoys watching all of her favorite daily talk shows with the DVR capability we now have. I enjoy recording different sports games and getting to watch them when I have free time on the weekends. We get to save money by doing this because we simply have no need to go to movie theaters anymore.

I don’t mind following the rules when they make sense. When they don’t make sense is when I don’t mind bending them to fit something that is a bit more logical in my mind. I did not want to be stuck with an operating system that was not extremely app friendly, at least with the apps that I tend to use on a daily basis. When I had iOS 8, I was not able to use several of the apps that are on my phone. I did a search for downgrade iOS because I knew that there had to be a way to do it.

I just wanted my old operating system back. I will gladly switch back to iOS 8 when they work all of the bugs out of it and when it works properly on all of my apps, but until then, I wanted something different, something that I knew would work since it has in the past. I found a website that explained how to downgrade to to my old operating system, and it was extremely easy because of how they explained it. I was still a bit worried about it because I am not used to messing with anything like this, so I was happy to see that they would be able to help me remotely if need be.

I decided to go ahead and try on my own first since they did make it seem so simple. I admit that I was more than a bit worried because I was not sure if I was going to end up doing something bad to my phone. It turned out that nothing bad happened though, because I was able to get the old operating system back on within minutes. All I had to do was reboot my phone and all of my apps worked again. I am so happy that there is a way to undo technological updates when they just don’t seem to work for me!

    Sometimes in order to describe something I do use a few photos I got from online, these photos will be marked and credited to the original owners if I know. If I don’t know, I still normally apply heavy photoshop on them to the extend of ‘recreation’ or ‘recovery’. If you can still recognize it or the difference is too small with your liking, as the original owner you should inform me, I will take them down immediately once I confirmed the ownership.
