I have three cell phones. My wife and I use anywhere from .5 to 1.5 GB of data a month each. My 17 yo daughter on the other hand, 14-18 GB a month, mostly cause she is on it 24/7 and streams music when she is out.. I was on the 18GB plan and bumped it to the 20GB plan for another 20/month cause she kept going over. Screamed about it till I was blue in the face. nothing. Got the family manager and locked her down to 14 GB a month. when the lock went in she wasn't able to text to all her Group Messages and blew a gasket!.. So yes, it is very easy to use 24GB of data.. Imagine adding two more teens to my situation...LOL

Roku Finally Gets a 2D Menu System 80

DeviceGuru writes "Many of us have griped for years about Roku's retro one-dimensional user interface. Finally, in conjunction with the release of the new Roku 3 model, the Linux-based media streaming player is getting a two-dimensional facelift, making it quicker and easier to access favorite channels and find new ones. Current Roku users, who will now begin suffering from UI-envy, will be glad to learn that Roku plans to push out a firmware update next month to many earlier models, including the Roku LT, Roku HD (model 2500R), Roku 2 HD, Roku 2 XD, Roku 2 XS, and Roku Streaming Stick. A short demo of the new 2D Roku menu system is available in this YouTube video."
