As much as I trust Sarah Palin, I would not even want her to have this much power.

I saw some ads for the InPixio product and decided to give it a shot. It turned out to be a great investment.

Last Updated on December 3, 2019 by Christopher G Mendla

I was going crazy with my Verizon fios service. The router would keep locking up resulting in a need to reboot. Even after rebooting, we had to fiddle with the laptops and desktops to get everything reconnected.
