Cutting Cable TV out?

I recently learned about some options as alternatives to traditional cable television. Sometimes I'm not sure if paying $80-$90 extra a month for a large number of unused channels is justified. It really is nice having the optional channels to watch if ever needed, but I usually don't. The cost savings over time are attracitve, compared to paying the monthly cable television fees, so I am still debating to see if some of these options whould be best for me and my family. This article by Jason D. O'Grady & David Morgenstern on ZDNet, explains some of the better options currently out there. Looks like Apple TV, Rok XDS and Boxee Box may be the better options currently.

Best A+ Certification study guide so far

I have to recommend CompTIA A+ 220-701 and 220-702 Exam Cram (5th Edition) by David L. Prowse for anyone wanting a study guide for the A+ exam. It can certainly be used by those with little or no exprience, as well as those with years of IT exprience wishing to refresh what is required to pass the latest CompTIA A+ exam.
