If you're ready to bring your PC into this decade, here are some great deals in a variety of SSDs. The 240GB Kingston would be great for your OS and commonly-used apps, while the 840 EVO 1TB drive offers fantastic performance and enough space to store most, if not all of your files.

Update: It seems that many buyers of the Kingston drive have been getting slower than advertised speeds, the reason for which is best explained by Anandtech. It's still a great price for a 240GB SSD, so you could always buy it, test it out, and return it if you're unhappy.

For the uninitiated, Slingbox allows you to stream TV shows from your cable box over the internet to any computer, tablet, or smartphone, all without any monthly fees. This model uses component cables instead of HDMI, which is a drag, but you could hook it up to a second TV where it's out of the way, and enjoy the Aereo-like benefits forever. [Slingbox 350, $100]

Amazon is currently offering the Verizon Moto G for just $70 with no contract. It won't work with Verizon post-paid plans, but you can get it on the network with some prepaid data. Hell, even if you don't connect it to Verizon, you could use it on Wi-Fi as a de facto Android version of the iPod Touch. Yes, it's a cheap phone, but it's really fairly solid! [Moto G, $70]

Emeril by All-Clad is essentially the same cookware line as All-Clad Tri-Ply, which is the holy grail for anyone who spends time in the kitchen (just ask The Sweethome). The major difference is that Emeril pans are produced in China, whereas All-Clads are forged in the USA. Assuming that doesn't bother you too much, $20 for an 8" Emeril fry pan is an insane deal, even if you have to wait a few weeks for delivery. [Emeril by All-Clad 8" Fry Pan, $20]

DISCUSSION

I realize that the Slingbox 350 uses component instead of HDMI, but on the plus side, there are a number of devices for PCs/Macs (Mac example: Elgato EyeTV HD) which can record component signals, so this provides a way to record pretty much anything your cable box outputs. You can use this Slingbox and one of those devices to build your own DVR, which likely won't be nearly as easy to use as one supplied by the cable company, but it will allow you to view the content more easily elsewhere whenever you'd like.

That's in addition, of course, to being able to watch any of your channels from anywhere you have a net connection. The plus the Slingbox brings (in addition to remote viewing) is remote control of the cable box and a pass-through of the component signal. Things like the Elgato device come with apps you can use to remotely record things, but the IR channel changer is a bit wonky (in my experience), so the two together allow remote DVRing to work fairly well.

Again, the cable company DVR is easier. But you usually can't get the content off the DVR to look at anywhere except on the TV connected to it (or to another company box).
