Invitation only
Jun 30, 2014, 10:16 AM
in the Article: Google to Shutter Orkut forum

Maybe if Orkut had been open instead of by invitation only, people might have joined.

in the Article: FCC Moves Forward with Controversial Net Neutrality Plan forum

Where do we go to actually comment on these so-called Net Neutrality proposals, the FCC's website?

Re: This is why
May 1, 2014, 6:10 PM
in the Article: Verizon Pushing FCC to Reconsider Auction Rules forum

It's due to deregulation that these large monopolies grew. We need to break up the large companies and then regulate them so they can't grow any larger.

Nerdy friends
Apr 17, 2014, 12:47 PM
in the Article: Facebook to Begin Rolling Out 'Nearby Friends' Feature forum

When I glanced at the tweet, I thought it said "nerdy" friends. LOL! At any rate, this might be fun to try out with friends in the future.

Why...
Jan 1, 2014, 11:51 AM
in the Article: Google to Shutter Bump and Flock forum

...does Google buy these services only to shut them down later?

Re: Kiss my ass!
Dec 17, 2013, 10:55 AM
in the Article: Facebook to Test Video Ads in News Feed forum

I am so not looking forward to this. :evil:

Verizon's freedom
Sep 9, 2013, 8:07 AM
in the Article: Verizon Fight with FCC Over Net Neutrality Starts Today forum

Means rules and restrictions for end users.

Petty
Aug 15, 2013, 2:24 PM
in the Article: Google Again Finds Fault with Microsoft's YouTube App forum

Let Google block the YouTube app. It's not like there aren't thousands of other apps available that do exactly what the official YouTube app was doing that Google disliked.

From taxpayers' pockets?
Aug 15, 2013, 8:34 AM
in the Article: Obama Would Raise Cell Phone Taxes to Fund Broadband forum

It's a worthy cause, but can't they raise the money some other way? My phone bill comes out to just over $100 per month.

Re: Here we go again.
Jul 12, 2013, 4:58 PM
in the Article: AT&T To Buy Cricket forum

Agreed. All these little companies getting swallowed up by the big guys will only lead to a great oligopoly.

Hey, Microsoft...
Jul 12, 2013, 4:13 PM
in the Article: Microsoft Accuses Customs Over Failed Phone Ban forum

...try competing in the marketplace instead of running to government to hold your hand because Motorola and Samsung are kicking your arse at every turn.

Re: Since February
Jul 4, 2013, 11:26 AM
in the Article: Vulnerability Allows Maliciously-Modified Android Apps To Appear Verified forum

LOL yup. We'll be lucky to get something by December, if even then.

Since February
Jul 4, 2013, 9:36 AM
in the Article: Vulnerability Allows Maliciously-Modified Android Apps To Appear Verified forum

Google and the manufacturers have been sitting on this since February and we're just now finding out about it? /;| :x

Coming soon
May 21, 2013, 10:18 AM
in the Article: Verizon to Deploy Small Cells Later this Year forum

To a neighborhood near me? Oh, I hope, I hope. I need some broadband love!

So what?
May 15, 2013, 4:59 PM
in the Article: Google Asks Microsoft to Kill Windows Phone YouTube App forum

There are any number of apps in the Play Store that allow the downloading of YouTube videos. Good luck trying to stop all of them!

Why don't they just quit?
Apr 19, 2013, 4:32 PM
in the Article: Yahoo to Cut Feature Phone Mail and Messenger Apps forum

If they're going to cut so many services that people like and use, why don't they just shut down altogether?

Why?
Apr 15, 2013, 4:59 PM
in the Article: Boston Cell Shut Down Unclear forum

Why shut down those services when people most need them? Typical government BS.

Re: Yay!
Dec 6, 2012, 5:20 PM
in the Article: T-Mobile Phasing Out Phone Subsidies forum

Hopefully, other carriers will follow suit.

Re: I wonder how much Judge Gildea was paid off by Apple
Sep 14, 2012, 4:24 PM
in the Article: ITC Judge Finds Apple Didn't Violate Samsung Patents forum

Apple certainly has the world court system in their pockets. Now they can sue anyone for anything and win.

Gingerbread
Sep 4, 2012, 9:24 AM
in the Article: AT&T Intros the Pantech Flex forum

I can't believe they're still releasing phones with Gingerbread on them.

Re: Not gonna lie
Jul 26, 2012, 4:44 PM
in the Article: Motorola Fully Reveals the Photon Q forum

Other than the different versions of Android, are there any significant differences between this phone and the Droid 4?

Re: not iDEN
Jun 10, 2012, 6:42 PM
in the Article: Kyocera DuraXT Arrives at Sprint as Rugged Direct Connect Clamshell forum

Right. I forgot that push to talk was available on CDMA as well as iDEN. I wonder if it'll be available on LTE.

Re: Phone with no network
Jun 10, 2012, 2:30 PM
in the Article: Kyocera DuraXT Arrives at Sprint as Rugged Direct Connect Clamshell forum

Oops! I forgot about that. Thanks.

Phone with no network
Jun 10, 2012, 2:21 PM
in the Article: Kyocera DuraXT Arrives at Sprint as Rugged Direct Connect Clamshell forum

Didn't I recently read that Sprint is shutting down their iDEN network? Why would they offer a phone for a network that will be gone soon?

Re: scary
May 17, 2012, 8:06 AM
in the Article: Verizon Readying Price Increases for Wireless Customers forum

Yes. Price increases are never the right thing to do unless there is some benefit to the customers in terms of better devices, faster networks, more bandwidth. When they just keep take, take, taking without even tossing us a bone, all they do is alienate us.

Re: Ghetto
May 2, 2012, 10:50 AM
in the Article: PrepaYd Offering Unlimited 4G for $60 forum

Ghetto it might be, but for those with bad credit or who can't afford to pay for an expensive contract, it would likely meet their needs.

Bribes
Mar 30, 2012, 3:46 PM
in the Article: LightSquared Stops Short of Calling FCC Action Illegal forum

Money changed hands somewhere.

Almost, but not quite
Mar 19, 2012, 8:05 AM
in the Article: NetZero Launches Inexpensive Mobile Broadband Service forum

If they were to offer 10 or 20 GB packages, I might consider it.

Re: Contract required?
Mar 6, 2012, 10:10 AM
in the Article: Verizon Launching LTE-Based Home Broadband Service forum

30 GB would be awesome. If they offered something like that in my area, I'd get it, contract or no.

Contract required?
Mar 6, 2012, 9:14 AM
in the Article: Verizon Launching LTE-Based Home Broadband Service forum

Sounds tempting. Would it require a contract and would caps over 10 GB be available?

Why the f'ing around?
Feb 15, 2012, 11:20 AM
in the Article: Motorola Not Delivering Android 4.0 Until Q3 the Earliest forum

There's absolutely no reason why the Droid 4 shouldn't get ICS. There's also no reason for Moto to take so long to deliver ICS to phones, except they insist on including Blur, even though people hate it. Hopefully, if Google gets their hands on Moto soon, they can change things for the better.

Bandwidth management
Feb 6, 2012, 3:45 PM
in the Article: AT&T to Top 5 Percenters: We Warned You forum

Is there truly any need at all, network integrity wise, to throttle and cap data, or is it purely a money grab by the carriers? :evil:

Touch screen only?
Jan 26, 2012, 4:04 PM
in the Article: Google Wants Android Devs to Forget About 'Menu' Key forum

I get the feeling that in the future, other than a power button, phones are going to be exclusively touch screen.

Good
Dec 30, 2011, 3:16 PM
in the Article: Verizon Wireless Recants, Won't Charge $2 Fee forum

I think that was a smart move on Verizon Wireless' part.

Good to see
Dec 7, 2011, 10:45 AM
in the Article: Page Plus Cellular Drops Unlimited Plan to $39.95 forum

That not all cell phone carriers are greedy, profitmongering bastards. Props to Page Plus!

That's all?
Nov 14, 2011, 1:36 PM
in the Article: Consumer Cellular Tweaks Data Offering forum

Anything below 5 GB of data is stingy.

Re: Please don't get me started
Oct 11, 2011, 12:20 PM
in the Article: California Governor Vetoes Cell Phone Search Law forum

It just goes to show you how committed to protecting the rights and freedoms of their voters our elected officials really are. I know I'll sleep better at night knowing these guys are looking out for me! :evil: :twisted:

Delaying Throttling
Sep 30, 2011, 10:42 AM
in the Article: Virgin to Delay Throttling Plans Until 2012 forum

Until they have enough people hooked on those data-hungry Android devices they're bringing out. Smart business move. :twisted: :roll:

Down with throttling and tiered data!
Sep 23, 2011, 12:47 PM
in the Article: FCC's Net Neutrality Rules One Step Closer to Reality forum

Let's go back to the old days when we gobbled up gigabyte after gigabyte with no repercussions from the providers! :twisted:

Greedy authoritarians
Sep 17, 2011, 1:04 PM
in the Article: Verizon Clamps Down on Heaviest 5% of Users forum

Always looking for a way to crack down on people's fun while bleeding us of money! :evil:
