Big Guy on Home Automation: TP-Link

It all started with an Echo. My story begins with the Amazon Echo. Go read that other story for a review about those. This story is about how I elevated that useful gadget into a marriage saving, life saving, sanity saving ecosystem thanks to TP-Link. TP-Link is not as well known as Phillips or Belkin…

Big Guy on Home Automation: Amazon Echo

The only problem with Star Trek that I have is that the future got here way before they said it would. I embrace my robot overlords Hello, Echo Here's the thing. I'm on Facebook, do 90% of my shopping on Amazon, and work for the Government. I gave up the assumption…

Big Guy on the Google Pixel Buds: Part 2 – The Review

This is the rest of the review I promised in Big Guy on the Google Pixel Buds: Part 1 – Connectiongate. I took a little time to do this review for a couple reasons. One, I really only use headphones when I'm exercising, and the family has been passing around the sickness over the last few…

Big Guy on Haiku: WWW

H. T. T. P. On. A series of tubes is born. Cat videos, please! OK. Why Haiku? I've always been fascinated by haiku for some reason. From time to time I may do some more of these if it is received well, and I feel inspired to do so. I love reading them as well,…

Big Guy on the Google Pixel 2 XL

Update: A previous version of this post claimed that if you had Google's Preferred Care on the Pixel 2 XL, that you could get two replacements for free. This is untrue. The Big Guy needs to do a better job of reading his emails. You still have to pay $99 per replacement, but they did…
