I Hate Facebook

in the Article: HTC Announces the HTC First, a Facebook-Centric Phone forum

I hate Facebook. It disgusts me that here is an entire phone asked around it. I will be very apply when this fad ends and I read of Zuckerberg's inevitable fatal overdose.

I use it on occasion. Fun to throw out in a conversation once in a while.

in the Article: Government Wants to Restrict In-Vehicle Communications forum

@bearofpanda: You support this because it keeps you safe? The government could mandate wearing a helmet 24 hours a day using that good. The fact is that this is invasive and not what the federal government is for. That you are a California resident supporting this is no shock. You people have made your state a bankrupt nightmare with excessive government intrusion, at prices you can't afford.

Too Much Government

This is yet another thing government does not need to be involved with. They do too many things already, which are incredibly invasive and cost money we do not have. I say, no further!

They change for a large company because it's easier than having the large company move. If you move, it's just you and your Warbound. Illinois did the right thing. Their business taxes are uncompetitively high. They don't have to lower their taxes, but no one has to stay there either. Odds are these kinds of changes might even bring more business to Illinois and their tax revenue will go up.

The new chipsets will be probably be more power efficient overall when not under heavy use. The third core is likely very efficient and will handle the basic phone and light menu functions. The other cores may be more efficient also, as they will be less likely to generate heat with their higher potential clockspeed. That aside, I completely agree with the need for significant advances in energy storage technology.

in the Article: NAB and CTIA Clash Over FM Radio Proposal forum

There is big difference between choosing to buy something with feature you might not use and having an entire product type carry that feature because of a legal mandate. I neither want nor need an FM radio built into my phone. Nor should I be required to have one because the RIAA are greedy scum and the CAB are little cowards who want to push their problems off on cell phone manufacturers.

in the Article: T-Mobile Hit with Lawsuit Over 'Unlimited' Data Plan forum

Contrary to what other posters claim, T-mobile DOES support tethering at no additional charge via a USB cable. I base this on my recent discussion with a T-mobile rep. He brought this up as a selling point for t-mobile over Verizon (my current carrier).

Whether they apply additional charges or throttle back from normal bandwidth, it constitutes a form of 'data cap', albeit at 10gb. That is not the same as 'no data cap'. The real point is that T-mobile, or any wireless carrier for that matter, should train their reps to accurately represent the limitations of their service plans. It should not be a necessity to fact check what these people say. That is an incentive to conduct my business ...

In my same conversation with the T-mobile rep, he said tethering WAS in fact allowed, and is free of additional charges. This was presented to me as a selling point.

It's true

in the Article: T-Mobile Hit with Lawsuit Over 'Unlimited' Data Plan forum

The plaintiff's claim that the T-mobile salesperson represented there was no data cap is accurate. Just last week, I was at a T-mobile store in WA State shopping for new service and was also told there was absolutely no data cap. They were quite emphatic about that fact. It seems odd that they would train their employees to misrepresent something like this, when it will clearly lead to legal difficulties.
