Cord Cutting-I saved Over $200 a Month By Giving Up Cable *updated*

It’s a huge movement.  It’s becoming cool not to pay for bloated cable subscriptions. The internet has made cable obsolete and cable companies know this but they don’t want you to know. Why pay for what you don’t use? It’s invisible clutter. My cable bill was $280 per month and now I pay $77 (not including the subscription services, some of which I was paying for already).

How to Fix the Choppy Macbook to Bluetooth Audio

Do you try to play music from your Macbook over a bluetooth speaker but find it unbearably choppy? After a bunch of searching I have found the answer and more importantly the fix. The choppiness is because of a frequency issue caused by the wifi/bluetooth modules in the notebook. Apparently, this is a well known issue but not yet fixed by Apple. The only solution I have found is to adjust bluetooth settings to 40. Here’s how:

defaults write "Apple Bitpool Max (editable)" 80
defaults write "Apple Bitpool Min (editable)" 48
defaults write "Apple Initial Bitpool (editable)" 40
defaults write "Negotiated Bitpool" 58
defaults write "Negotiated Bitpool Max" 58
defaults write "Negotiated Bitpool Min" 48

Then reboot your computer and Bluetooth devicebluetooth wifi

There are other settings to experiement with:

30 – Low audio quality
40 – Medium audio quality
48 – High audio quality
58 – Excellent audio quality
