After computers hit the public scene, many wondered if communicative technology had hit its zenith. Today, the answer is obvious: NO! Just as radio presaged TV, computers simply set the stage for the next level: mobile phones and electronic tablets. When it comes to certain functions, computers may already in fact be considered obsolete, and they’re losing further ground fast.
Consider watching TV programs. They are far more conveniently viewed on the mobiles and tablets than on desktops and laptops.
For now, kindly peruse below for your delectation.
1. View TV from Anywhere
An Xfinity app can easily be downloaded to iPods, iPhones or iPads, though the latter are most recommended due to available screen size. The watchword is convenience. Where the operator goes, his favorite TV shows go too. If current programming doesn’t appeal, there’s a search “On Demand” feature to choose from.
The DVR (Digital Video Recorder) features provide for a live TV viewing extravaganza. They include fast-forward and rewind functions and independent review of action through instant replay or slow motion.
Too tied up for current viewing from either live or On Demand programming? No problem: use your phone or electronic tablet to have the DVR record that favorite show that just can’t be seen then.
This same TV arrangement is downloadable for Android as well.
2. All the Kinks Are Out
For those who may connect this technology with earlier quirks and obstacles, rest assured that those hurdles have been rendered part of antiquity. Version 3.0.3 addresses all previous concerns and beyond. E.g., there’s now an email preview line for email holders, there’s much faster loading now of HTML emails and no voicemail access issues remain.
3. Ease of Use
And the operational process doesn’t require a geek to run it at all; that’s right, Xfinity app is very user friendly.
For the “On Demand” streaming feature, e.g., a simple button press starts the process. Or is it the initial start-up procedure that sounds intimidating to you? It shouldn’t. With Comcast Cable, simply sign into the account while at home and let the phone’s technological wizardry do the rest to synch all of the required devices together. Access is then possible from virtually anywhere.
Program selection isn’t complicated either. There’s an easy “TV Listings” button to be tapped from the device that provides two weeks-worth of programming to choose from. The “On Demand” button can be used for instant streaming of movies and TV should the first option fail to appeal.
And while the kids might not appreciate the gesture, parents can access parental control settings while on the job or otherwise indisposed.
4. Other Advanced Features (Only for iPad)
Let’s not lose sight of other iPad features that rival the computer, such as a bill-paying function and the capacity to check emails (and voice mails, of course). The email capacity is expansive rather than just local. External email accounts from Yahoo, Gmail and other sources are also accessible. And photo library attachments can
accompany all emails.
There’s more, but we are simply conveying why the day is fast approaching when the computer will become an exhibit in the “extinct species” section of your local museum.
5. Face the Facts
Since computers will soon be joining the T-Rex in our graveyard for the vanquished, you should start immersing into that state-of-the-art revolutionary technology known as Comcast Cable 3.0.3. Soon, you’ll be carrying all links to the worlds of business and communication on your very person. For starters, enhance your TV experience with technology and convenience that leave computers in the dust.
