As I’ve stated several times before, our home and our lives are connected 24/7. With two gaming consoles, three desktop computers, a Nextbook, an Amazon Kindle Fire tablet, and four smart phones running on our home Wi-Fi network – our family demands fast and functional at all hours of the day and night.
For the past several months, Teen #1 has been homeschooled, so he’s been home all day, every day using the computer and the television and the iPod all at the same time. Teen #2 comes home from school and immediately starts creating tracks and doing vocals for his music, which interested Teen #1 as well, and now I’ve got both making music at the same time. It is a definite strain on our internet speeds and frustration bounces throughout the house as someone’s program locks up, another person’s computer crashes, or everyone just gets frozen up.
