    Thought I'd share my youtube channel. Right now has 3 videos uploaded from when I was a kid at the deaf school signing and acting out "4 Little Pigs" play and Nursery Rhymes (have a few more videos that I plan on uploading at some point of stuff we did at the deaf school). NOT ASL, but Signing...

    new TV

    I'm going to buy a new TV, just so I don't have to haul the old BIG TV that I have over to my new apartment (I really don't think anyone will want to try hauling it up the stairs at my new place...). Any suggestions on which flat screen TV I should get that has the best captioning services? I...

    boy, moving sure is a lotta work!

    But it'll all be worth it once I get settled in at the new apartment. SMOKE FREE! and the pool is in front of my apartment, yay! The apartment I'm moving to is just a lot nicer, so I'm looking forward to living there. Just don't care for all the work involved with packing, cleaning, moving...

    just got a young cat

    Just brought home a cat yesterday. She mainly hangs out in my bathroom while I work with my dog to not get so excited over the cat. A few times I'll bring my dog to just outside the bathroom and let him look in and see the cat, and let the cat see him, both a safe distance away from one another...

    want a laptop

    My grandparents are giving me up to $1000 for a new computer. I'm looking around at laptops to replace my Acer Aspire netbook (it's like 3 years old, doesn't even work all that well anymore). I want a good sturdy quality laptop (not a Mac, won't be able to afford that, don't want the Mac Air or...

    youtube movie rental

    I just now noticed Youtube now does movie rentals (streaming). Just curious if anyone here has tried Youtube's movie service, and if youtube has captions/subtitles for the rentals. Also, how much of the Netflix streaming content has captions? Does even more streaming content have subtitles...

    deaf friendly wireless service

    So which wireless provider is more deaf friendly? Verizon or AT&T? I've been happy with T-mobile and the Sidekicks, but not sure if I want to stay on T-mobile (if only I could get more info on what the new data-only plan would cost if I were to get the new Sidekick...). I'm in the state of...

    Verizon plans

    I'm debating switching from T-Mobile to Verizon in May when my T-mob contract is up. I'm still happy with T-Mobile, have no serious issues with them. Customer service has been great for me, and I'm extremely happy with just the Data only plan at $29.99 a month. But the thing is, Wyoming is not a...

    anyone here use the icom? Since I've got issues with TecEar's NoizFree music link already, I'm trying to find other solutions to listen to music on my ipod. I'm going to talk with my audie when I see her next Tuesday, but wanted to get some feedback on here in the meantime.

    new audie

    Finally! I got to see the new audie at the office yesterday (former one is out of office to help a relative.. grr I've been trying to switch audies but the assistant kept insisting I didn't need to switch!). Anyway, after seeing her yesterday I was very happy with the appointment. got an earmold...

    Direct Audio Input (DAI)

    Does anyone here use DAI to listen to their music, phone, etc.? Just curious how well this works. I use Hatis Epic and t-coil on my hearing aid to listen to music, but I do get electrical sounds/buzzing when I'm near computers and stuff.

    Phonak vs. Oticon

    I've worn Phonak HAs since I became deaf at age 2, and have always been happy enough with their products (until I tried out the Naida for 3 months a couple years back, which I didn't much care for). Now I'm just wondering how the Oticon products compare to Phonak. I currently am wearing Phonak's...

    Coming out of isolation

    Just reading the bit about the insurance denying hearing aid coverage for the kid pissed me off to no end. Just because deaf people can still communicate with signs doesn't mean insurance can deny providing coverage for hearing aids/CIs. Give me a break.

    earmold costs

    I'm annoyed that I just got charged $75 for a SINGLE earmold.. ONE! I'd expect that kind of price for a pair, but not just 1! Golly, my audie keeps bumping the earmold price up every year or 2, it's ridiculous. My last one cost $68 (which is still a lot). But $75, seriously? dude..... not cool!
