Verizon Wireless unleashes TV service

Do you need to see who got booted from Survivor the instant it happens? Verizon Wireless is hoping to get customers to tune into live Survivor, Daily Show, and Letterman broadcasts through its just-launched TV service. V Cast Mobile TV is now available in 19 locales, mostly in the Midwest and West.

By paying US$15 to $25 a month (and purchasing the Samsung SCH-u620, the first to support this service), you get 24 hours of streaming video from eight channels: CBS Mobile, Comedy Central, ESPN, Fox Mobile, MTV, NBC 2Go, NBC News 2Go, and Nickelodeon.

But you won't necessarily be getting an exact replica of what's playing on your TV at home. According to USA Today, some shows like the CBS Evening News, Survivor, Letterman, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report will be on during their normal time slots, but other shows, like South Park and Chappelle's Show, will stray from their regularly scheduled time. MTV's programming will match what appears on TV.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
