A tip o’ the hat to the luck o’ the Irish

Jane Reuter,

Our Exede mascot Brian the Alien’s olive-toned skin may lend him a passing resemblance to a leprechaun, but don’t be fooled. While Brian’s symbolic of our out-of-this-world satellite Internet technology, he’s not quite as mischievous as the magical imp of St. Patrick’s Day. Read More…


Is Windows 8 consuming data in the background?

Steve Shute,

We ran across this Help article by Microsoft about how the Windows 8 operating system can possibly consume data in the background, without your knowledge, and even without you triggering it. This might happen even when you’re not using the PC, as long as it’s turned on and connected to your Internet connection. One of the main causes is the start screen tiles, such as News, Stock Quotes, Weather, etc.

Microsoft recommends that you change the Windows 8 settings to “metered” to reduce the amount of data used by the operating system. They mention some of the following effects of turning on the “metered” setting in your Windows 8. 

  • Windows Update will only download priority updates.
  • Apps downloading from the Windows Store might be paused.
  • Start screen tiles might stop updating.
  • Offline files might not sync automatically.

For the full Microsoft article, including their instructions how to change the Windows 8 settings to “metered,” click this link:…sked-questions

We hope this little tip helps some of you!
