Most of us listen to some form of audio to get us through part of our day; maybe you enjoy listening to podcasts while working or streaming a specific playlist to pump you up at the gym. I personally enjoy listening to music while driving in my patrol car at work. Unfortunately, the vehicle isn’t… Read More

I’m a self-admitted night owl and most of my television viewing is done after 8:00 pm. This wouldn’t be a problem if I were living alone but unfortunately for me, that’s not the case. My roommate is not a night owl and usually goes to bed around 10 o’clock. This is where me watching TV… Read More

I walk and listen to music or podcasts pretty regularly. Because of the heat this summer, I started doing it in a mall about ten minutes from my house, and have kept at it through the rain and cold this fall and winter.

I spend a lot of time driving, and I’ve grown tired of my local radio stations and the same 5 song set list.

Unfortunately, when using auxiliary inputs, simple things like… Read More

Lately, I’ve been considering upgrading my Onkyo stereo receiver. It’s about 8 years old and doesn’t have wifi, Bluetooth, USB or even HDMI. But it does have a nice sub output for my (even older) Pioneer subwoofer—but that’s another story. There have been countless times that I’ve wished I could easily stream my iPhone to… Read More

A few weeks ago I posted an article about two of my Cummins co-workers who had integrated a Nexus 7 tablet into their vehicles.
