Re: Sync 3 v3.0 upgrade issues, a/k/a Ford's tech people are MORONS!!!

I think it was Sync 2, but I'm not positive. It was a 2014 Fusion with the basic Sync. It would randomly switch inputs, pairing devices was a bitch. It wouldn't read any other devices except my own phone. Eventually Bluetooth stopped working all together. The system wouldn't remember what Source it ...

Re: Sync 3 v3.0 upgrade issues, a/k/a Ford's tech people are MORONS!!!

I just sold my Ford this week. One of the things that annoyed me so much about the car, making me sell it 3 years earlier than I planned, was Sync. What a disaster.

Re: Are there programming changes at CKLW?

As well as CKLW does in Windsor, I don't think it equates to total popularity. I believe the Canadian ratings system only measures the Windsor stations, even when a good chunk of the population still listens to Detroit. Using this measurement method, I think it inflates CKLW's numbers, which obvious...

Re: Are there programming changes at CKLW?

Apparently Lynn Martin is on vacation. Odd way for them to address that on their website. As for their programming, while I can definitely understand why CKLW bores most people, I enjoy the nature of talk that isn't dominated by divisive political talk or snoozefest sports analysis that dominates th...

Why when there's so many relevant things to talk about does Ron always go on about some old baseball player very few people have ever heard of? No one cares! It shrinks the listening audience to 15 people.
That's how I feel about lots of these repetitive topics on this board.

Re: Comey used personal email to conduct government business

Ever use Secure Email? It's not exactly Gmail. Depending on the archaic way I'm assumimg secure government email servers are configured, it could be way over some people's heads, so they may try to find an easier method. Combine that with the fact that busy politicians typically don't understand or ...

Re: Radio in the house

I'm a 34 year old radio collector, so I'm outside the norm. Many of my friends my age don't have radios either... they say the programming sucks and they can get what they want by streaming. Many of my friends have premium accounts with streaming services to avoid heavy advertising. Can't say I blam...

Re: New Rock 89X

I'm unable to easily stream the Canadian stations. I had to download an app on my iPhone/iPad called "Radio Box". This allows me to stream the Canadians that I used to be able to stream on TuneIn, iHeart, etc.

Are there programming changes at CKLW?

I've been listening to CKLW a few times this week, and notice there are new national shows. I can't remember TKO's original time slot, but it appears to be shorter than before. Also, Lynn Martin's 9-12 show isn't on today, replaced by another national show. I can't find any mention of any upcoming c...

Re: Spectrum

I have Spectrum, which I got from the Bright House days. I liked Bright House, as they typically had good, reliable service and good customer service. But I am going to be a cord cutter, leaving only internet service, due to the price of cable and internet jumping way up to $130. I'm unaware of any ...

Don't forget everyone: the poster above said more literate, articulate, and cogent than any of the rest of us. I didn't mention anything about your looks, birthday, or the age of the president, so those points are irrelevant, but thank you for the cogent argument for your case there Cowboy.

Re: Is Seven To Two A Narrow Victory?

So at the church, instead of citing the real reason for not marrying the couple that was determined before even meeting them, the recommendation was to flat out lie by placing the blame on them by asserting they're not good enough? Place the problem between the two of them instead of with the lying,...

You sure don't have a problem flooding an internet message board, sounding like a goober and having people laugh at you. Neither do/did any of your alter-egos.

Re: CIMX-FM coverage area

Pics and info would be interesting, since I could never get much information on the home of these stations in my own research. The bizarre circumstances around its deconstruction after only 25-ish years make it more interesting.

Re: CIMX-FM coverage area

When I went to CMU, I used to regularly receive 89X and 93.9 The River in the car on US-27 near St. Johns. I think the farthest I ever got before losing one of them was Ithaca.
